    RIU Reggae Party time

    This hotel is one of the liveliest we have ever stayed in. Very enjoyable. However, there is one drawback. If you want to sleep at night, don't book a room with a partial or full sea view. These rooms are adjacent to the pool area where events are virtually constant from 1000 to 2330. Having said that, our stay was very good if not sleep deprived. The hotel is well maintained and looked after. The food and various restaurants were very good as well. More importantly, the staff are tremendous and very hard working, from the entertainment through restaurant and house keeping, enough can't be said about their helpful manner and hard working. I would recommend this hotel if you want party time or relaxation, there are area where you can relax without the constant reggae music. I would return again. Thanks to all concerned.

    Great Girls Trip.

    I am just back from a week long girls trip. I have been to 5 other RIU resorts and this was by far, the best. It is close to the hotel, clean, friendly, great food, ok drinks, and the BEST RIU fit and RIU entertainment team I have come across. Ace, Crazy and Kitty Kat were so talented and genuinely friendly. So many people were joining in on the fun and games. Servers, bartenders, cleaners, pool staff, maintenance staff, gardeners... everyone....was always smiling and happy to help. You can walk across the beach from here to the RIU Montego Bay, and hang out there as well, using their pools and their water slides. The Italian restaurant was my favourite, and I love that you didn't have to make reservations. I have visited a lot of resorts in Jamaica, DR, Costa Rica, Mexico and Cuba. While I loved so many of them, this is the first I would return to. (Actually, 5 of the 11 in our group HAVE been here before). The only thing I didn't care for was the young men selling their goods from their kayaks at the beach. For the most part, they were pretty good, but some felt a bit more agressive. Just say no thanks ans they typically move on. Thank you for the good old fashioned Jamaican welcome. We will be back.

    Love the rius in Montego Bay

    10 friends took a trip to the riu reggae at the end of January and we were not disappointed. I had stayed at the riu Montego Bay in 2019 and enjoyed every minute , this time we were next door at the riu reggae which is much smaller than riu Montego Bay but it worked well for our large group so we could always find eachother. Food was great as usual and the people are so so so friendly. From the buffet to all the restaurants I loved it all ! Reception, wait staff, maintenance (I locked us out of our safe lol) , bartenders and entertainment staff were all amazing . The beach is nice and quiet - my preference haha but the main pool was a wild party everyday if that’s your thing. There is another pool which stays quieter as well so there is something for everyone. Nightly entertainment is just …. Wow . Pretty sure our group watched the show every night because they are just so talented. We attended the disco a couple nights at Montego Bay and the white party which was awesome. We felt safe and secure at all times, everything was clean, no issues with food and we did two excursions one was the catermaran - they ladies working there were hilarious (Sylvia?) was our fave and the staff on the boat were great. Snorkelling was amazing and the captain kept the environment fun. I also did the bamboo river raft tour which I cannot recommend enough , it’s a short distance from the resort and all the staff there were exceptional I would do that excursion again for sure. Overall 10/10 for the riu reggae I truly believe people that leave negative reviews for this place are snobs ahaha The thing about rius in jamaica is they will always do what they can to help you out and fix any issues you might have . If you get to come to this resort you are blessed xx :)

    Not what we Expected

    Hotel only 7 mins from the airport, Check in was fast and room is what we expected and were on the top floor only three story’s high. Didn’t realise how close Riu palace and Riu Montego Bay where to the reggae reggae actually side by side. Hotel was clean and the staff where good but the entertainment staff where far the best we have ever seen fantastic! Food was good but if I’m honest a bit bland. I was looking forward to having Red Stripe lager but in all honesty it made me gag drinking out of the worst plastic beakers I every seen, it goes flat and warm straight away and they serve drinks in these until 8pm unless you tell them. They do branded spirits but you have to ask for it! I think the hotel is missing a trick that they don’t have some kind of indoor lounge/bar if you don’t want to sit in front of the entertainment stage you only have the 24hr lobby bar across from the reception which I think is a bit rubbish for a 5 star hotel!! I was told that that the percentage of brits in the hotel is less that 18%! We tied the Asian restaurant it was ok but the steak restaurant was rubbish went twice just to make sure it was not a one off. The sun beds around the pool/ beach side are rammed together even though there’s plenty of room on the beach and it seems everybody’s repositioning beds for more room or to catch the sun. If you smoke there’s only two smoking areas one in front of the hotel and small area to the side of the entertainment stage. We went as two couples in our early fifty’s but found it geared up for the younger generation. Being so close to the airport aeroplanes are flying over All-day until 8pm. Never saw any management asking if everything was ok or doing any patrols. Went on some trips to so if you require any more info don’t hesitate to ask. Would we return NO. Have visited Riu hotels before but this one’s not for us. Ps book the Mobay lounge at the airport.

    Nice mix of party and relaxed

    Excellent vacation! Riu Reggae is the perfect place to unwind and have fun. There’s enough of a party vibe to entertain and keep you busy if you’d like, but theres also no pressure to join in. Diverse group of people— a lot of British and Canadian travelers. Not too many of us Americans- which I think is nice! The staff are friendly and helpful. Shoutout to Winston at the stage bar. He’s the best!! I like that you can go over to the RIU montego bay for the water park, nightclub, and shows. The food has definitely improved since last here in 2020. Jerk hut on the beach is still the best chicken you’ll ever eat. People line up for the restaurants at 6:30pm, but if you go by at 7:30, theres usually only a 5-10 minute wait (& you can wait at the bar!) Pros: location close to airport. Food and drinks. Relaxed, fun vibe. Clean rooms. Cons: cost-cutting measures like very limited products in the bathroom, uncomfortable beds. A little wear and tear around the edges. Would definitely recommend for a fun trip, nothing fancy, but very comfortable. We’ll be coming back!
