    Not so great!

    This is my second and last time staying at this hotel. Unlike my first visit this recent visit was rather disappointing. The staff were all nice, polite and friendly. However, I felt short changed with the drinks on offer in the mini bar, and at times at the other bars in regards to the lack of Wray and Nephew ovenproof rum. In addition, although the Jamaican food in the restaurant was mainly nice but the desserts on offer were not very nice as it seems like they were put together using left overs of from the previous days offerings. The bedrooms were not cleaned early enough as at times my room was cleaned after 2 pm. There was an occasion when there were no clean towels available for a few hours. The bathrooms in the room tended to have a very strong unpleasant smell. I strongly believe that management/owners need to give their guests full value for their money. I will not stay there again in a hurry.

    Didn't live up to what I thought Negril beaches were supposed to be like be

    May 2023 - this was my 1st visit to Jamaica and unfortunately my experience here at Riu Negril was not like my other experiences at other all inclusive experiences,or even my other RIU experiences. COMMUTE: unfortunately it took 2 hours to get to the resort from Montego Bay airport ROOMS: They were nice, did the job. The front desk was nice enough to accommodate moving my dad and I to another room for better accessibility. FOOD: the buffet was good. Unfortunately the jerk hut on the beach is only open till the food runs out. BEACH: this was the most disappointing point. The sand was not white, and fluffy. The whole beach area had sea grass growing in the water, so there was only one clear patch for visitors to swim. The water was so quiet without any waves. There were always locals on the beach selling drugs. VIBES: there was no background music going on throughout the hotel. I found that the majority of staff weren't very hospitable or good when it comes to customer service. A few of the staff members were very focused on asking for tips, which was what you want to great while on a vacation. The activity staff were the ones that were more personable and friendly. OVERALL: my first experience in Jamaica was not the best and I don't want to paint all of jamaica work this one experience. But unfortunately I give this resort a 3/5 at best.
