A beachfront setting, stylish interiors and a great choice of restaurants are the calling cards at this spacious hotel.
The Riu Negril's pulled up against a white-sand beach, so it’s got front-row sea views. An all-night sports bar and mini waterpark are in the mix, too.
It's a bigger-is-better situation here. The trio of pools, high-ceilinged lobby and five restaurants are all at the supersized end of the scale.

My husband and I just returned from our 5th visit to the Club Riu and it never fails. We paid for an ocean front room and requested either building #1 or #2. They honored our request and we were in 1046. I can't say enough about the staff. They were so friendly no matter if they worked in entertainment or food service. We especially enjoyed Tiny and her entertainment crew. The staff really seemed to enjoy their jobs and their interaction with their quests. On our first night we had lobster in the buffet and it was excellent. We ate at each of the specialty restaurants as well and they were wonderful. When we visited there were definitely enough beach chairs to go around. We especially like that we could sit on the beach, in the shade, under the trees. We found the Ocean to be great but wore water shoes because we always do in the ocean. I would highly recommend Tracyann in the spa. I had a deep tissue massage on the beach and it was heavenly. I would highly recommend this resort and we will be back again next year!More
Beautiful weather friendly staff
Was a so-so resort. Beach water has squishy and mossy. Food was ok but not bad. Rooms had a few broken items. Lots of lawn chairs no need to save any. Service was fast. Seen one server cleaning dirty silverware off the tables with a napkin and then setting clean tables with them. Shows were very good. One staff member was exceptionally friendly, we enjoyed chatting with Damion. Kenducca was fun too!More
This resort was awesome! From check-in to check-out - people, food, beach was amazing! Jerk hut on the beach is a must! Swim-up pool could have been cleaner but we navigated to the adult pool. Negril 7 mile beach and Rick’s Cafe are a must if you go there...amazing and breathtaking views! The only reason I would not return is because of the bus ride to and from the resort- it was the worst experience in my life and I have been to and from many resorts (15+) in my lifetime. I was afraid for my life and and the traffic was brutal!!! I would love an airport in Negril so that I could go back and visit the amazing staff that I met - Claudia and Dalton! These two were definitely standouts on the Riu Negril resort!❤️❤️More
My wife and I just returned from Riu Negril,stayed there January 17-24-2020.First of all those people who left the negative reviews should not have left the ivory tower they must live in.As far as people saying there is not enough food choices wow! It must be nice to have that much selection in their food and drink every day. Hotel was clean people friendly and helpful.Check in / check out was great.Swim up bar could have been cleaner.Some of the staff go out of there way to ensure you have a great stay.Three of the staff that were a stand out were Claudia,Javine and Dalton.We would definitely go back,except for the drive to and from the airport ,it was a was like a scene from the movie death race.The drive was 2 hrs.each way.On the return to the airport the guy sitting across the aisle from me chewed off his finger nails and was working on his wife's.Will not return to Negril unless they get their own airport.But allsaid great vacation.More
We enjoyed our week stay Jan. 18-25, 2020. It was our first time in the Negril area. Pros: *beautiful property - loved all the trees on the beach - so much sun yet so much shade when it was needed - beach provided decent snorkeling. We liked the protection that the bay offers to the beach. *Great entertainment staff. Throughout the day and night, they were always seen interacting with guests and having a good time. We enjoyed their evening shows very much. *rooms were nice - we had an oceanfront in building 2, second floor (2118). It had a great view and beautiful sunset but there was a tree that prevented us from seeing the sunset all the way to sundown. We took to the beach for the actual sunset on the horizon. The king bed was rather firm but wasn't bad for us (who are soft bed lovers). *food was good, better than most all inclusive places we've been - although in the buffet, each day was much the same as other days with the exception of a featured meat. We also enjoyed the restaurants which were all really good. Cons: *BIGGEST problem for me that would probably keep me from returning - they say they are smoke free - they are not - there are no smoking signs all over the place yet people stand right next to signs and smoke - the scent of weed is everywhere as well - I don't care if it's cigarettes or weed, I don't really enjoy smelling any of it so I wished there were limited areas for smoking or if staff would at least enforce the no smoking areas. I heard a bartender only once tell someone they couldn't smoke in that location. Consider making the resort smoke free except for VERY limited areas. *housekeeping forgot to restock our towels and/or soaps more than once which was a bit annoying especially when you're back from the beach to get ready for dinner and have no towels. Called for towels and they arrived at some point when we were already gone. We had one clean beach towel we luckily didn't return for the day and that's what we used for that night. One other thing about housekeeping staff is that when they would clean our room daily, they would knock over our things on the dressers and bathroom counter so when we'd return much of our items were on their sides and all pushed into one area. Just seemed odd to me that they'd leave our things in such a mess. PLUS we tipped housekeeping daily always hoping that would stop but it did not. They also would throw our shoes into an area where I think they wanted us to keep our shoes. This too was odd to me to come back each day and have all our shoes thrown into this furniture compartment. We got their hint and started doing it ourselves. *the booze is cheap booze - this is fine with me since I rarely drink but when I do I enjoy a nice smooth dirty martini and they are not the same with cheap booze. I am relishing in all the saved calories from not drinking alcohol this week. :) *there are locals constantly strolling the beach and hanging near some of the trees on the beach attemping to sell everything from weed to fresh lobster to bracelets - this can make people uncomfortable but if you simply tell them no thanks they respect that and will leave you alone.More
