lost reservation, poor service

Just returned after a 4 day trip with a group of 6 families at Riu Montego Bay. They supposedly lost the reservation of 1 family and made us wait for over 3 hours prior to assigning the rooms after hours of arguing and escalation. Customer service at front desk is horrible compared to any avg 3 -4 star hotel in US. Couldn't get any reservation for any of the restaurants since you can only make a reservation after room number us assigned which meant eating buffet for all meals but 1. Alcohol selection ok however no premium scotch so we bought our own. Room was decent. The beach area is not clean resulting in mosquito bites for all of us. Buffet selection good although not comparable to a cruise ship. Entertainment options are poor. Will not return to this resort chain again. It's better to pay extra and pick a better resort.

Right Place For Short Time

The RIU Montego Bay is a nicely landscaped and well maintained facility. We upgraded to a beach front room which greatly enhanced our stay. The staff is friendly and the management is responsive. Our five night stay fulfilled our desire to have a relaxed get-away. We would stay here again and would recommend this facility to others.

wifi in more places for free

You can only use 90 min of wifi for free a day and only in the lobby. The restaurant situation was annoying as all the reservations were taken by 9am! Then we were stuck with the buffet unless we wanted to beg the restaurants to make an exception. Also outsiders begging for money near gates at building 3 was creepy at night.

'Not the Best RIU"

We are RIU fans and have stayed at many of them. While relatively new, this one somehow seems a bit worn and dated. The food was abundant, and between the buffets and the ala cartes, you can find some very good meals. The staff was uniformly friendly, polite, and accomodating. You can't help but develop a real fondness for the Jamaican people. Our biggest complaint was the bar service. Started right out with a major disappointment: can't make mojitos. Tried numerous drinks that were awful: Long Island ice tea, salty dog, margeritas... I could go on and on. It wasn't the lack of "name booze" - don't really care about that. The bartenders simply didn't know how to make decent drinks. Even the daquiries were often served with rum floating on the top of the slush. We have never had a problem with RIU drinks - some of the best where we've stayed before - but this one let us down.

Shopping mall across the street has a lot of bargains, and you should "bargain" for prices. They will come way down if you simply ask.

Great 4 day vacation

We had a great time from the minute we arrived. The staff and entertainment was very good and the property was in great shape. Had a nice relaxing time at the beach and pool. Lot's of activities both at the beach and in and around the pool. We spent most of the time on the property since it was all inclusive but did spend a few hours outside the property shopping and 1/2 day of fishing.

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.
