    Loved Loved it! Great hotel!

    Beautiful beach. Lovely view. Went with a friend who regularly uses Riu. I had a fantastic time. One pool great for adult and swimming use. Beach Bar great drinks soft and alcohol. Staff incredibly helpful. One of the gardeners helped with my luggage when I was struggling as I was on second floor in the furthest building and there are no lifts - something to note. You can get help with your bags - I just forgot on the checking out! I al not usually a buffet fan but the buffet breakfast was excellent local and international food available, clean and amazing fresh fruit. Evening meal good variety too. As a first time joiner to Riu Class was very impressed. The hotel was chilled, it's not a party hotel but it doesn't bill itself as that but for some chilled lovely days of r and r I loved it.

    Awesome Time!!!!

    We had 7 people total in our party and we had a fantasitc time. Everyone that worked at the resort was so nice. Food was enjoyed by everyone....We loved all the food and especially the wide range of times the resaturants were open. Even after getting back from a snorkeling excursion, we still had time to go to the buffet!...We will definitely come back to this resort!

    Stayed at a horrible resort in RIU Negril, Jamaica

    Planned this trip for a family get together. Many of the staff were considerate and accommodating, but not all. It was all inclusive but each day the breakfast was taken away earlier and earlier. The restaurant listed , on the phamplet we were given upon check in, open until 11:30am. The omelette station closed at around 10:15 each day. So I called again and asked and was told by the front desk it was open until 11:30. Again by 10:30 things started getting pulled. By our last day I finally asked one of the workers why he was taking the food away before 10:30. He proceeded to raise his voice and tell me they had to set up for the next service which wasn’t until dinner. I said I was reporting him and he proceeded to follow me around the buffet yelling at me. I finally told him To Leave Me Alone! I put my food down and went to get a smoothie that was also being removed and had a very rude worker park her cart right in front of me so I couldn’t get to it so I moved it. Now their in cahoots and sent a supervisor over to our table and I told her to go away I will take this up with the management. Now I’ve had to deal with 3 hostile people at breakfast. She lipped off and said she was reporting me. We were on our way out and someone from security approached and wanted to know what happened. Person number 4, at breakfast. I explained and though she appeared to feel bad I have yet to receive an apology. The same thing happened at the lunch restaurant. Every day. I spent almost 7 thousand dollars on that trip just for the hotel and airport transfers. I would never stay there again. My advice, spend more money and stay some place better. their Nightly entertainment was for kids , they had no music except on the weekend and that ended by noon. The place was just weird.

    My husband and i have just come back from 2 weeks at the Riu Negril .When we got to the room it was lovely and clean but that was the only time apart from 1 day when we were on the balcony when the cleaner came and did a good job ,but that was the only time our room got cleaned and towels got changed in 2 weeks .She came in every day and made the bed took the tip and left.Most of the staff were very unhappy and just ignored us.The tui rep was only interested in selling trips that where very expensive if you wanted to know about anything else she was not helpful .I would stay away from this hotel.
