OK time.....

Resort was simply ok. For a 5 star resort, I expected the food and service to be much better than mediocre. Nothing for a teen to keep occupied with. As always, Jamaica is wonderful but resort left something to be desired.

Nice getaway

Nice beach, friendly staff, I really liked the lunchtime BBQ on the beach. Had jerk chicken everyday! The resort is very close to the airport which makes it a bit noisy at times.

Work Trip

The hotel is close to the MBJ Airport (5-10 minute taxi ride) and is a $20.00 cost. The hotel does not provide a shuttle service so taxi is your best bet. The only negative for me was they do not offer free wifi and since I was there on a business trip that was a little inconvenient. They do offer 90 consecutive minutes free in the lobby each day but sitting out there in the heat and humidity isn't comfortable.

Destination wedding!

Great family vacation, staff was amazing and very accommodating. Grounds and pool were beautiful and well kept. Hotel could replace beds and pillows with something not as hard a rock but otherwise nice. The food was good and abundant . The wedding went off beautifully and the hotel did a great job at making it memorable . The spa was nice though a bit crammed into a small space, but the staff did a fantastic job with the hair and makeup for the whole bridal party. Party cruise up the coast and Dolphin cove/dunn River Falls tours were great fun even for the kids.Thanks again Hitel Riu Montego Bay Jamaica!

Amazing trip, hotel was great, but scuba people were horrible

overall it was fantastic, but I'm sure a lot of that had to do with the people I went with. We were very excited about having the scuba stuff at the hotel, but sadly they were extremely rude. so we only did out first dive with them. Luckily the customer service people at the front desk hooked us up with a dive shop 7 minutes away call Sea World Scuba at the Carablue hotel. Vincent was our guide and was fantastic. Took us where and wanted to go and was just a really nice guy. The tubing and ziplining we did with Chukka tours was a blast. I strongly recommend. The hotel employees (other than the scuba people) were amazingly nice. The entertainment was a lot fun. The dancers were great. The Italian restaurant was by far my favorite of the 3 restaurants.
