The Riu Montego Bay is an attractive, all-inclusive resort in exclusive Mahoe Bay, which hugs a scenic coastline less than three miles from Montego Bay. This family-friendly resort has plenty for everyone, including a kids club. Couples and singles are drawn to the resort's nightclub, spa and nearby Montego Bay nightlife. The beach offers a variety of water sports and a lagoon-style pool beckons. Guests will listen to live music or settle in to RIU Theme Shows, with performances seven days a week after dining at one of the resort's four restaurants.

The cozy 681 guest rooms at Riu Montego Bay are decorated colonial style, blending naturally with the lush gardens and turquoise waters surrounding the resort. Guests enjoy views from their balconies or terraces. All rooms are equipped with satellite TVs, radio alarm clocks and mini-bars. Suites include hydro-massage bathtubs and lounge areas.

 

Property features

Guests of the Riu Montego Bay have plenty of options at meal time, with a variety of buffets and two a la carte restaurants, including the elegant Mahoe Bay Grill and Steak House. The breakfast buffet offers spot cooking stations and a 24-hour snack and beverage spot cures late-night hunger.

Not so great weekend getaway

I have been to many all inclusives inclusing other Rius. I was highly disappointed at the Riu Montego Bay. I stayed at the sister resort next door two months prior and in comparison it was night and day in terms of quality and service. The Riu Montego Bay was poorly maintained. The rooms are outdated and lots of broken fixtures. The pool was missing tiles throughout and very moldy and dirty. Our room had "unexpected visitors." The food was just okay and the staff did not keep the buffets replenished as it should be. The staff were not rude but they were not attentive or as friendly as the Riu Palace next door. The alcohol drinks are horrible. Very watered down and limited options. There isn't 24 hour access to food unless you consider empty nacho tray and stale popcorn food. The entertainment was good probably one of the best amenities there. If you can spend the little extra for the palace or go somewhere else. At least until they refurbish and hotel and features.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There are shops for souvenirs right across the main road but you have to bargain to 50% or less than the price shown.

Ok hotel

The food was the best part of the hotel stay. The bed was extremely uncomfortable, it was like lying on the a rock. The toilet needed to flushed 2 times and you have to wait for 5 minutes before it will flush. I went for wedding, the food at the steakhouse was served at the reception, it was aweful. It should have been from tge buffet. My friend broke in rashes when sat on the bedding.I will never stay here again.

busy-moms escape

Staff was overall friendly but frequently seemed as if they didn't want to be bothered (getting an extra towel or an iron). I know all busineeses cut corners to save money but at times felt uncomfortably obvious (difficulty getting condiments with meals, all inclusive buffet was great but once servers involved, things were doled out, took forever to receive & not with a Smile... I would say 50% of staff was very attentative, friendly & the resort itself was one of the funnest I've stayed at (shows, games, entertainment, sports) the staff were multi-talented and knew how to work a crowd!! Despite the little unfriendly, unwelcoming and slack amenitiy service; the beautiful grounds and 'fun' that's in the aura is Right On.. yah mon

Yearly Jamaican Vacation

I stayed with my son and 2 friends at RIU in Montego Bay from 6/1 to 6/8/14. The rooms were comfortable. The food was delicious. The staff were all great, very helpful and friendly. I have stayed at other hotels in Jamaica before but the RIU was the best. This is my hotel to stay at each year when I go back.

Staff were friendly, room was clean. Fridge didn't work and bedding wasn't the best. Lots of activities and awesome pool and beach front! Best for parties or spring break.
