My wife and I chose the Adults Only Riu Palace Jamaica for our 10th anniversary. The hotel is a short 5-10 minute ride from the airport. Upon arrival, we were blown away by the Palace and the staff that works there. The lobby is magnificent, as is the style and design of the entire hotel. Kareth at the front desk welcomed us with a friendly greeting and got us checked in very quickly. She also provided maps of the hotel facilities and a schedule of events. Our room was nice and extremely clean. We had no issues or problems with our room at all, and the shower was great.
We certainly did not lack for food during our stay. The main buffet was always really good for dinner the nights we did not go to the Steakhouse. For lunch they had a large buffet inside and then even more options outside including some awesome jerk chicken.
All of the waiters were awesome, we had Romiero at the Steakhouse and Jason more than once at the main restaurant. They took good care of us and made sure we had everything we needed. Also should mention my man Clive on the beach, he came up with a nickname for me early in the week that he stuck with throughout our stay. The entertainment team were all great. Lorenzo, Lisa, and Fun Fun, among others kept us involved in various activities during the day and some at night.
Another neat benefit of staying at the Palace was being able to go to the bigger Riu property next door any time and take advantage of the additional food options and to see the shows at night. We went over at lunch to get the jerk chicken at the hut on the beach, and it was very good. The shows later at night were also pretty entertaining.
I would, without a doubt, return to the Palace in the future and I hope that happens sooner than later!
