First off I would like to say my husband and I had a wonderful experience from start to finish. The moment we checked in the front desk told us that they did not have the room we requested and automatically gave us an upgrade to the RIU Palace we were greeted with champagne and warm welcomes.. the staff were amazing especially sim who waited on us at our dinner at the beach, he was amazing.. the food was great, the jerk on the beach is a must try. We meet some amazing guest who were friendly and nice. The atmosphere was just amazing you felt welcomed at every step of the way. Thanks again for a wonderful vacation RIU Jamaica

Disappointed with no coffee maker in room and no room service. Also disappointed that we had to fight to have a plate of food in the room when one of us was to sick to go down to dinner. The ‘no food in room ‘ policy is sticky enforced however, feel free to sit under the ‘no smoking ‘ sign and smoke as that policy is not enforced at all. The staff was delightful and very good. The beach was beautiful but swimming areas covered in sea grass. Pool was beautiful. Overall good vacation but would not stay at this particular RIU again.

Overall we had a wonderful vacation. We had an ocean front suite and were very pleased with the accommodations. The property was clean and very walkable. Not too big, not too small (and safe). Great water activities-Hobie catamaran, paddle boarding, Kiyaking, peddle boats (all included). The buffet food was ok, resort food and what you would expect (I have had much worse). There were 2 main buffets and 3 dinner restaurant offerings (all first come first serve, no reservations). The steak house was terrible and highly do not recommend it. We walked out prior to being done. However, the Italian was great (but not true Italian, ie pasta more fish and steak with an Italian twist). A MUST (and I am very serious), jerk chicken on the beach from 1-3 (fabulous, ate it every day we were there and it never got old!). Heads up - snorkeling, do the catamaran snorkeling from the resort facilities on the beach. The Travel agent ones were ok (we did both), however, the resort outing was so so so much better as far as the reefs and fish (and much cheaper). However, it's all snorkeling, ie no booze, no stop in town. If you are looking for something more than just snorkeling, do the tour ones (or do both like us). All in all I would highly recommend the resort. We thought it was a great value for the money. Out of a week stay, the only bad experience was the steak house. Otherwise, we had a blast and we all walked away with a smile.

There was nothing unique about the property, it’s a 3 star. Needs to be renovated in a big way! Had a suite and another room for our daughters and for two nights no hot water and no cable! Management knew of the situation that this was happening in two buildings but never disclosed. Called each day and all they said was were working on it! For 7,000 dollars you expect more. Furthermore, we have been to several rius in different countries and always had room service available and mimosa in the mornings this property has neither. There are two rius next door and they have champagne but not ours!!! Don’t understand that one! Will never stay at this Riu again! After the way the management handled the hot water issue and no cable I will never stay at another RIU ever! 7,000 for 5 nights should get me a lot more then bottom shelf liquor, no room service and no apologies from management or any compensation for 2 of our nights with cold showers! They told me to take it up with who I booked my trip with, that’s great customer service for you! Management do not bother to put your generic response when you see this! If you wNted my business you would have taken care of my family when we were there! The worst RUI we’ve ever stayed at. It will be our last! Way toooo many other all-inclusive that will take my money and treat us better!
