first of many trips to come

I loved the overall trip. The resort employees were just AWESOME. The beach was a bit small however what the beach lacked the pool made up for. The rooms where modern and clean loved the in room included bar. With 4 different adult beverages to choose from. The grounds were beautifully kept. I never had to wait more than 15 minutes to be seated for dinner it depended on what time you arrived to eat. Yes I would most defiantly rebook at many Riu Resorts again. Cheap Caribbean only reflects the price for the trip not the way you are treated. Very much worth it and much more. My next trip I am planning is to Costa Rica next year hoping to get to stay at another Riu Resort . I would also go back to Jamaica there is so much more to see and do maybe Negril nest trip . The locals are very friendly and helpful from the moment you get in your ride at the airport to the resort you feel welcome. A must visit resort.

1st Trip To Jamaica

I had never been to Jamaica before and was hesitant to book the trip because there were so many sites from which to choose. A colleague from work mentioned that he and his wife had used CheapCaribbean.com several times and never had a problem. After doing some research I booked a 7 day/6night stay at the Riu Montego Bay for my wife, myself, and our 2 sons. We had a great time! The resort was beautiful and the staff was amazing! A couple of the excursions we took seemed pricey at first...but we got our money's worth! I highly recommend the Dunn's River Fall and Bob Marley excursions! The room was nice and well-maintained (although the toilet had issues which never did get fixed). The mini bar was well stocked. The beach seemed a little small because of the surrounding resorts, but was still lovely. Overall, you couldn't ask for much more out of a vacation!

This was my second time here

This was my second time at this resort I chose To come back because I overall Liked it. The resort is amazing it’s huge, clean, many bars, many food options, lots of entertainment, and a very big pool. The things I dont Like is that they play and stop the music at the pool during the activity after every single word it’s beyond annoying. They don’t just let songs play. I also Wish they had more Music throughout the day instead of just being during activity times. Also, the pool closes at 7 but they made us get out at 6:30, I dont See why we can’t night swim when it’s beautifully lit up. The staff was amazing the first time I went, very friendly, welcoming, fun etc but this time not so much. Many staff members had attitudes when asked questions or when we needed something I was shocked! overall it’s truthfully a really nice resort

Riu has Upgraded

My husband and I just returned from our trip to Riu Montego Bay and I must say since the last time we were there in 2014 it has changed quite a bit. No more of the ugly Purple Paint LOL also the food seemed much better as well as the staff and activities crew. They are not so pushy when it comes to the excursions as they were before and we liked that, we just wanted to chill and relax, and that is what we did. I do recommend the couples massage, it was fantastic! The only things that I would complain about was the room smelled extremely musty/mildew-y and the lock on our door was broken to the point that I couldn't open it myself my husband always had to open the door and close it. It looked as though it had been kicked in sometime before because the door facing was broken around the door. Also, they put us in the building furthest from everything, Building 6 which can have advantages and disadvantages. So be wise when choosing your room location. Thanks Riu for a great time! We will be coming back soon!

What's to Love

The epic-sized pool goes on for days and has room for everyone. No trouble finding a lounger here.

Delicious Jerk Chicken at the shack on the beach. It'll be your daily pit stop.

You'll love the "drink of the day" - fun, sometimes fruity, and definitely worth a cheers.

Every room has a balcony and nothing beats sitting outside your room with warm ocean breezes.

The luscious Renova Spa does wonders for your body and soul. You'll thank us later.

Carve out time to snorkel off the gentle shores of Jamaica. The plankton shine brightly and can't wait to see you.

Put on your dancing shoes because the band at the Coconut Bar has got some serious steely tunes.

 

What We'd Change

Reserving dinner seating at the a la carte restaurants is a must. Book early - even before you arrive, if you can.

 

Why You Should Go

Just a hop, skip and a jig away from Sanger International Airport in Montego Bay. Beachy drinks await.

Dunns Falls is a great day trip - hiking, zip lining, snorkeling, picnicking - it's a blast for everyone.

The staff is amazing. Seriously, they take care of it all. You just sit back and let the pampering begin.

Bring your own colorful beach towel if you want to easily see your lounger by the pool.

Start off your day at the sweat-busting gym. Always good to get those toxins out of your bod.

If you're there in July, check out the Reggae Sumfest. Jammin', mon.
