My boyfriend & I stayed at the Riu from Jan 28th-Feb 3rd. Stayed on the deluxe side.. pretty close to everything. Resort was beautiful. Loved the beach! I laid out by it every day. Nice size, beautiful water & soft sand. Make sure to try the jerk chicken hut on the beach.. it is delicious!
I only have 2 complaints about our stay; 1.The beds are AWFUL!! This seems to be a problem any time we travel but man, these beds were so uncomfortable. No matter how I laid, I could not find a comfortable position. 2.While we were there, there were some VERY loud, obnoxious Canadians(a group of 20+)that did not know how to handle their alcohol & were screaming & yelling, running around the pool, throwing ping pongs at people's heads & just did not know how to act. The group was young, about 18. They tried to start a fight with my boyfriend & I because my boyfriend asked the mom to answer her daughter who was on her balcony screaming at her for over 5 minutes. When the mom got in my face, the lifeguard just looked over & did nothing. I was a little put off by that. They also woke us up 4 of the 6 nights we stayed there by coming in at 2-3am & screaming in the hallways & 2 of the nights they set off the fire alarms. I did not go on vacation to spend it with a bunch of kids who think they are on spring break. I was hoping the staff would intervene a little but no such luck.
The food was very good. Try the tenderloin at Sir Richard-it is fantastic! Drinks are very weak.
All in all, it was a great birthday getaway & I would stay there again if we decide to go back to Jamaica.
