Riu Tequila Room location

We are booking two weeks at the Riu Tequila in March, 2007. We notice on the map of the resort that the building with the Jr. Suites appears to be far from everything. Can anyone give us any information on good room numbers to request? We don't want to be too near the disco, or anything that might be noisy. We stayed in a Jr. Suite in Riu Ocho Rios last year and it was awesome. Thank you.

WE have stayed at the Riu Tequila for the past 3 years and the only rooms that I didn't love was the one right beside the main lobby building. It was just too close to the road and the laundry noise for my liking. None of the rooms are too far away from anything and we never did hear any noise from the Disco. We love the Tequila but have decided to try the Riu Ocho Rios this year. Any advice for us?

We absolutely loved the Rio Ocho Rios and have no complaints about the resort, service was fantastic. The only thing we found we missed was the vegetation. The way the grounds are planted, it will never be lush, otherwise the resort is beautiful. If you go to Webshots.com - look at teddifax. We have some pictures there of Jamaica and the Riu Ocho Rios. We can answer any question you have of the resort and the local area. The webshots site is currently being rebuilt and maybe not available for a couple of days.

thanks for the info,. to be honest we have never had a junior suite at the tequila. the first year we went though we were in the last building on the left of the pool and it wasn't too far, We are 2 couples in our early 50's and are all active and found it was a lovely stroll even to the beach. Never heard any sounds from the disco and were in bed by midnight every night never awoke except the first year the birds were a little noisy.

We used the beach at the Yucatan daily although did check out the Playacar, Yucatan, and the Lupita too for breakfasts.

You will have a wonderful time.

Thanks so much for your information on Riu Tequila - we are so excited about this vacation it can't come soon enough! As mentioned, check out www.webshots.com and do a search for Teddifax Jamaica. We have lots of pictures taken at Riu Ocho Rios and other areas we visited in Jamaica last February. If you have any further questions about the resort we'll be more than happy to try and answer them.

Hola amigos, thanks for getting back to us , the pics were great, gave us a feel of the Riu Ocho Rios, you will find that the decor is similiar , but with a Mexican twist , forgot to tell you , although I mentioned that we went to the other Riu for breakfast , you can stay @ 1 and play @ 4, the Lupita uses the beach near the Riu Maya Palace, so they have to be transported there, staying @ the Tequila can't play @ either of the Palaces, we mostly used the beach @ the Yucatan, went to the Playacar beach once, although we did walk between them , the beach @ the Yucatan is beautiful, the palms were damaged from Hurricane Wilma 05, but in Feb 06 were growing back, take an insulated mug for your drinks, were drank lots of soda H2O with lime on our beach days ,very hot just relaxing..... until we went back to the pool @ the Tequila late afternoon, also pick up inflatable bath pillows from your local dollar store with the terry backing, esp if you want to read while sitting on the beach lounges, helps to keep your neck comfortable , have a wonderful vacation, its difficult to wait...Edmonton mamma and I booked our 2 wks @ Ochos Rios for Feb 07, last wk, we meet there & vacation together.
