Riu Montego Bay
A beachfront setting, a big swimming pool and plenty of food choices – the Riu Montego Bay proves its worth as a Jamaican retreat.
The Riu Montego Bay is fronted by a white ribbon of sand and shrouded in tropical palm gardens. Although it feels far from the crowd, it’s only a 10-minute drive from the town centre.
Everything at this hotel is given a luxurious twist – one of the two pools bristles with sunken loungers, the restaurants dress up to the nines, and the sea-view suites are accessorised with carved furniture.

Little things mean a Lot.
I stayed here recently for a nearby wedding, and thought it looked nice from the website, but it lacked the little things I expect from a quality resort. There was no coffee/tea pot in the room as my fiancée needed a cup of tea because she did not feel well one evening, there was no pen and paper in the room as I wanted to write a note, there was no alarm clock in the room, there was always a wait to eat at their 4 restaurants of at least 10 min., If it wasn't for the friendly staff, it would be a 2 star resort.More
I have stayed in many Riu hotels and by far this was the best for food, plenty of choice and very tasty, the jerk chicken was amazing. If you like to get out and walk around then I dont think this hotel will be for you, I also underestimated how busy the flight path would be and for this reason alone I personally wouldn't return to this resort. That said, the staff work exceptionally hard and although the rooms are tired they are exceptionally clean. The pool and beach was a winner and cocktails went down a treat as did the red stripe beer. The excursions were a little pricey for what they are but i recommend the Dunns river falls. More
We stayed here for a week April 28 to May 5 and I must say we were thrilled with most aspects of the resort. However we had one big issue and for that reason probably won’t go back ( still had to give it a 4 put of 5 tho because the good things are really good!!) Pros Staff!! The staff are so helpful and friendly , from the bartenders to the restaurant staff ! Food- excellent in the buffet as well as in the a la carte! The buffet is large for a small resort! Loved the food The drinks are great! Beds were comfy, AC worked well! Entertainment team are fantastic! First resort we have been to that we actually enjoyed the entertainment! Smallz is a tiny little bundle of energy, also kupcake, supreme ,triple xxx and chocolate...all fantastic and so friendly Only 5 mins from airport Shopping centre across the street has great stuff and is completely safe to walk to or they shuttle for free Cons ( mostly minor) The reviews say the pool is not clean and unfortunately that is accurate... my hubby wouldn’t get in after day 1 or 2 because it was so yucky The beach- didn’t bother us much as we aren’t huge beach people but if you like a beautiful beach this is not the spot to pick Now the kicker... and the reason we won’t likely be back...we had our ceiling fan fall out of the ceiling ( as it was running) and right onto our bed at 4am as we were sound asleep! It fell on my leg and fortunately I was not hurt but if we had of been walking under it, it could have been very different. We called the front desk who sent a gentleman to come and take it away. That happened Wednesday, in the middle of the night , The fan wasn’t replaced until Friday eve. And that was only because the couple next to us were getting their safe fixed and they mentioned our issue to the maintenance people who fixed it right away! That was after talking to front desk a few times about it as well as our sumwing rep! Management never contacted us to see if we were ok.... offer an apology... or anything to acknowledge that it happened at all. We emailed them when we got home but the response was “ we can’t undo your dissatisfaction, contact sunwing”...More
1st time to Caribbean
Traveled with Tui. This hotel is amazing, with a relaxed atmosphere. A slice of chilled paradise on an amazing island. There must be hundreds of rooms but you don’t notice. The rooms are very spacious and have a full mini bar. Plenty of sun beds on the beach and around the pool. There are 4 restaurants for dinner, you need to try all 4. All the staff at the hotel are lovely and can’t do enough for you. We didn’t use the spa but the gym was adequate for a basic work out. Some reviews on here are complaining about the planes, the noise lasts for 30secs tops and honestly if you want paradise but can’t afford it, don’t complain. The Tui trips are amazing, and we would recommend the luminous lagoon trip We are already looking to plan our next trip. More
Lovely hotel, very clean, staff always happy to help, entertainment team never stop to make sure you are having a fantastic holiday, will definately recommend it. Second time we have used the Riu group of hotels and both have been terrific.More
