    Great week at The Riu Palace.

    We just got back from a wonderful stay at the Riu Palace Montego Bay, and my only word is...fantastic! From the moment we arrived, until when we left, it was fantastic. The staff are exceptional! Nothing is too much, although we are very low maintenance. The food was way better than I had expected, and the specialty restaurants were all great. The pool staff really tries to keep thinngs lively, and their energy is contagious. We did one excursion for a sailing/ snorkeling trip that ended at Margaritaville, and it was a great day. The ability to utilize the adjacent resorts is a nice perk also. This was my first trip to Jamaica, and it's my new favorite place!

    This Jamerican received a very warm welcome home

    I have stayed at this resort many times since they opened but missed the last three years due to that nasty covid. I wasn't sure if I would be remembered but the minute I stepped off the bus I was greeted with hugs and welcome home. As always everything was perfect. I went with my sister in law this time and we had the best time. Dr. Phil made us feel so welcomed every meal and remembered our beverages. Mr. Grant watched over us and made sure we were safe and happy with everything. I don't plan on having to wait another 3 years to return. In fact, hoping for May of this year!

    Paradise on earth just WOW Bucket list

    We stayed at the Riu Palace Montego Bay Jamaica over the Christmas Period, oh my goodness the staff are just amazing they go above and beyond for their guests just incredible we can’t praise them enough. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay the only problem was we didn’t stay long enough, we was on a cruise and stay we stayed at the palace for 7 nights and I actually cried when we had to leave at the end of our stay. The entertainment staff are out of this world they work extremely hard and keep you entertained the whole day long friendly , attentive and just incredible in what they do, the waiters/waitresses are equally as attentive and friendly work hard. This was a bucket list trip and OMG it did not disappoint just incredible A BIG THANK YOU to Riu Palace Montego Bay for making our Jamaican dream come true. We will definitely return without a shadow of a doubt we can’t wait to see you all again.

    Great entertainment!

    Great place. The set- up was the best thing. Literally in front of the beach. We stayed at the palace and had access to both reggae and Montego Bay. Palace was def more relaxed which is what we were looking for! But when we wanted to do something else we went to to the other resorts. The entertainment was great! Spark, black panther, Spider-Man and all the entertainers were great! You can tell they love what they do. The jerk chicken at the reggae hotel was the best! Weather was perfect. The RIU white party was amazing! Overall, we’re definitely coming back. Best place I’ve been to by far.
