Riu Negril is an all-inclusive resort destination designed for couples and families, and set on the sparkling sands of Negril beach in Jamaica. Dance to island grooves at the Pacha nightclub; dive into one of two freshwater swimming pools; and take part in non-stop activities that include table tennis, volleyball, windsurfing, sailing and kayaking. Guests who simply want to relax can tan on the soft beaches before stepping into the Renova Spa for manicures, facials, massages and wraps. Riu Negril even has a Jerk station serving up local Jamaican cuisine six days a week.

Neighborhood
The location of the Riu Negril is fascinating, being situated between Bloody Bay and Orange Bay in one of Negril's most secluded areas. Vistas feature the Caribbean Sea and Booby Cay, an isle known for its influx of birds and wildlife. Close by, the Rhodes Hall Plantation offers horseback rides along the beachfront - and it's also home to Jamaica's largest crocodile population. Visit nearby Green Island for a glimpse into Jamaican history; this village, now something of a ghost town, was once one of the most prosperous places on the island, particularly in terms of sugar cane production.
Hints and tips
If you're hungry for a snack at 2am, or looking for a nightcap before hitting the hay, the all-inclusive services at the Riu Negril are open 24 hours, so night owls can make the most of the midnight oil.

Senior Trip

Took my daughter there for her senior year high school fall break. Very relaxing and fun at the same time! Entertainment crew very good! Ocean is clear and calm in Bloody Bay. Hotel is a good value for the money! One drawback is not enough reservations for dinners available.

Great getaway for the price

Hotel was nice, not a 5 star though. Needs updating, but who spends a ton of time in the room when they are in Jamaica??!! The al a carte restaurants could have had a nicer selection, and maybe a little more intimate in their seating. The beach was awesome, and it was great to snorkel within the swimming area. I do recommend bringing water shoes. Overall a good place for the value!

Coming back home next year, cant wait

The hotel was perfect, the staff exceptional, the food excellent and always available. The coffee was superb and the rum free flowing.Beautiful resort with many lush walkways, extensive beach that we found absolutely breathtaking. The bay itself is capped with 2 RIUs, we felt we were in the better of the two. Entertainment every evening. Jerk chicken available all day on the beach as well as a convenient beach bar. The pools were to die for, gorgeous, and inviting.WELL WORTH THE PRICE AND THEN SOME. We had an amazing time for 8 days here, cant wait to come back home. See you next year on talk like a pirate day september 19, 2015. LISA AND DAVID , KENTUCKY PIRATES AAARRGGHH

OFFICE OF NATURE - coldest red stripe in the bay, and fresh caught lobster grilled to order. A great retreat from the heat, with a friendly staff that can assist with any travel needs. Best place on earth, right before the RIU PALACE, BLOODY BAY NEGRIL, JAMAICA bring a flag for the office of nature to hang from the rafters

Nice but not the best

Nice view of the ocean from the lobby. The food was good at the specific resturaunts onsite ( italian, steakhouse, gourmet) but the buffet needs some help. The rooms are older and have loud A/c units and tv's from the 90's. Staff, was helpful and nice. The beachfront was lacking, nothing in comparison to the 7mile beach which is beautiful.The shows were very well put together and displayed beautifully.

Terrible and disappointing

Aside from the view there is not one thing I liked about this hotel. It needs to be gut renovated!

Room and Staff are excellent, food so-so

The staff are clearly the standout here. Everyone is amazingly friendly. The room was very clean and comfy. If you want to venture off the resort, the main bar scene is close by. The beach on the resort is pristine and gorgeous. My only qualm was with the food, which was mediocre to average at best, but is somewhat expected in an all inclusive...after all you aren't getting an A-I for a 5 star dining experience ;)

Family getaway

Our whole family (2 adults, 3 teenagers and 2 children) had a wonderful vacation at the RIU Negril. Beautiful hotel and beautiful surroundings, delicious food, we all went up significantly in weight :), all the staff and entertainment crew took such good care of us and there was a wide range of activities, we were busy all day. We went to Seven Mile Beach but longed immediately back to our wonderful resort. Rick's cafe was worth a visit! The beach outside the RIU negril is not as nice as at the sister hotel a short distance away on the beach. Would also recommend the hotel's spa, wonderful massage! We will be back!

Great well rounded resort

Daily beach volleyball; great snorkeling in Fish Sactuary right off beach; 1.5 miles of white beach to jog along past other resorts and souvenir stalls; mini catamarans included for thrilling sailing around a little island off shore; great food selection (told all RIU hotels have this); best restaurant is Sir-Andrew and the entertainment crew were the best ... also all Jamaicans are SUPER friendly and cheerful ... Would love to go back there. Had 2 teenage daughters with us and even they had fun and loved the 90 mins of free wireless in the lobby!!

Live band at 8:30pm, hillarious ice breaker on stage at 9pm and good variety of shows at 9:30pm. Disco at 11pm a bit hit and miss ... make some new friends on the beach and drag them to the disco and get the DJ to play your favorites!
