Riu Club Negril Hotel: Bloody Bay Jamaica

In a nutshell. This hotel was clean, spacious, generously catered for food, with a good range of entertainment each evening.

Rooms are spread over four blocks along the beach strip

The holiday reps are very hyper, all day, but they work exceptionally hard Β – especially with all the entertainment routines they put on throughout the day and evening.

After being let down with some of the tours we booked via the hotel tour reps and Thomson rep (i.e. the tour operators didn’t bother turning up to pick us up on the mornings we booked for – and any member of staff you spoke to wanted to wash their hands of the problem), I would strongly recommend you simply hire a return taxi to take you to the places you want to visit.

 

 

There was too much food to mention. Anyone who complains about the food, well I’m not sure what they eat at home but there was everything under the sun at this hotel, including pizza and chips for the home sick πŸ™‚

Riu Palace is a prettier hotel with a nicer and quieter beach area, however, it seemed to lack any atmosphere. Riu Club is certainly a lot livelier and seems to have a bigger crowd.

      Yes it certainly had a more colonial feel about it with the dark wood furniture etc… apparently it has had a refurb’ since. From people I know and the mountains of reviews I’ve read, Ocho Rios sounds like a particularly nice Jamaican RIU and it’s beach is said to be one of the nicer – I’d like to head there if/when I’m in Jamaica again in the future.
