A beachfront setting and a great choice of restaurants come together at the ClubHotel Riu Negril. Plus, it’s having a makeover for 2015.
The ClubHotel Riu Negril is pulled up against the beach, so it’s got front row sea views. If you want to get out and about, Negril’s town centre is less than a 20-minute taxi ride away.
From November 2015, the hotel will have a fresh look that includes a new pool and restaurant, plus modernised rooms.

Rats, bees and mould!!!
We spent 4 nights at this hotel. After the 2nd night we tried to organise a move to the Riu palace but no availability. Overall this hotel was very poor and certainly not worth the money paid. We now live in Jamaica and have stayed in several 'comparable' 5 star all inclusive hotels - all were FAR better than this!! On the first day we had lunch in the main buffet and my kids and I saw a rat run across the restaurant floor. After that my son refused to eat there. I reported the rat to Aliciya on reception but she took no action and was clearly not surprised. The swim up bar pool was dirty. The beach was unswept and the sun beds were old and cheap quality. There was no beach drink service. But the worst thing was the constant presence of people selling and smoking hash. With 2 kids this was very uncomfortable. These guys did not just walk down the beach but spent the whole day on the main beach area. The hotel leaflet advises against buying and encouraging these sellers and also tells guests not to feed these sellers. We saw several groups of ladies befriend these drug sellers and then constantly supply them with food & drink from the allinclusive. The beach attendants did nothing to stop this or move them on.it was obvious they were friendly with these guys. In short-not family friendly and didn't feel safe to give our kids ( teenagers) freedom on the beach. The room was full of mould -smelt bad and patches all over the ceiling. The optic was not fully stocked on our arrival - only restocked every 2 days. The corridors to the rooms were dark,dingy and not swept in several days. There are honey gees everywhere especially around the bars - so you can't comfortably sit at any bars. My son was stung in the pool and I was stung was watching the show! The food on the buffet was ok but very samey everyday. The only positive aspects of this hotel are: the reef off the beach - lots of stingrays and the entertainment staff. I would not recommend anyone to stay here -even after refurbishment.compared to otherhotelsthe beach ,facilities and food are poor. It will take much more than a refurb to sort this hotel out. More

Wedding in Jamaica
A party of 30 of us travelled to Negril, Jamaica for a niece's wedding. I had been to other islands in Caribbean many times but had only spent one day in Jamaica while on a cruise. The flight was fine, but pick up at airport was chaotic, however we arrived finally after a 2 hour drive.( due to heavy traffic). The check in was done well as they had organised a separate area for the wedding party. The room was good, including a small fridge and drink dispenser. I never spoke to the maid but it was cleaned adequately with towel animals. Food at buffet was quite good, all the usual dishes, including Jamaican dishes. Service was quite prompt too. However there was only this one restaurant for breakfast, maybe due to low season., A la cartes were booked 2 days in advance, in the main lobby. The Italian Luigi was good and we went twice, including our wedding anniversary. Long pants were not necessary for men here. The gourmet (long pants required) was also good but not excellent food. Lunch was served as buffet in the restaurant used as steakhouse a la carte in evening. The only other place for lunch was the jerk chicken hut on the beach, which was very good. The beach was fine, reasonable sand, lots of shade trees, warm water with sea grass but still and cloudy, so quite boring. The servers at beach bar were very happy.helpful young men. There were buskers on the sand, playing guitars etc for tips, and others selling floats (and drugs) but they didn't harass you. Games were organised on beach by entertainment team but you could move further up beach for quiet time. Two pools next to each other, had lots of palapas, one quiet and other busy, noisy, happy due to swim up bar. We had booked during the Jamaican national holidays ( by accident) so the resort had many locals and many Americans there for the parties. But it was all good fun and everybody was extremely friendly. The evening entertainment was fine, good live band on outside patio during dinner time, and then usual type of shows on stage later, followed by more of band for dancing. The comperes and entertainment staff were very good. The bars were able to serve quickly, patio, stage and lobby. The wedding was lovely, using gazebo on beach, well organised by staff with chairs music and flowers. Live music might have been a little nicer but ...... There was a gap of 2 hours before the reception but we did get rain so we all took shelter in our rooms. The meal was held in the top level of the steakhouse and was well done. However as it is open aired ( with roof of course but no A/C), it was very very warm and took away the appetite. There was no dessert offered as they gave us wedding cake. The bridal couple brought music for first dance/fathers dance and had paid extra for a liveband for an hour. The wedding was lovely but I wondered why an extra charge was made for the reception when all 30 of us would have been eating , perhaps in the a la carte, included in our all inclusive. We booked a catamaran trip for the whole party, so we had the boat for ourselves. This was a great day, even though the weather did not comply....snorkelling at reef, cliff diving at Rick's, ( stop at Margaretiville was cancelled by us due to rain) and music and dancing on way home. It was a great holiday and the staff were very helpful. This hotel is closing for renovations now, although we couldn't really see a lot of damage needing this.More
Paid a premium price for an inferior property
This hotel was slated for renovation 3 weeks after our stay. I get it; hotels get tired and old but don't charge me a premium price for a dump. The hotel was dated. The bedspread was all picked and from the 70's. The room had so much mould and mildew that I was hoarse every morning. The staff were rude because the hotel was closing in 3 weeks. They had an attitude. Everyone had their hand out. One day I didn't leave a tip for the maid and I had no towels. The bar was only stocked minimally in the room. The food at the a la carte restaurants was terrible. The wait staff were ok but the front desk staff could not care less. The pool with the bar had to be closed for 2 days it was so murky. You were ignored by bar tenders if you did not tip. The beach and water was not nice. The water had weeds in it. Walk 10 minutes up the beach to the Riu Palace and it was like another world with lovely beach and water. The wifi was only available in the lobby for an hour and a half. Really?! In this day and age at this price?! The property will be renovated but I would discourage choosing a ClubHotel vs. Palace. Pay the extra and you will be happier. Signature Vacations should be ashamed to charge this premium for this hotel. I will not use Signature Vacations again.More

Great holiday, great mix of foods and loads to do. Mini bar in room restocked daily and you have to get the boat to ricks cafe for beers and cliff diving Also, fresh lobster on the beach BBQ and a beer is Â£15! Couldn't really ask for much more, perfect holiday for relaxing or partying! More
Great holiday been 3 times looking forward to seeing it when it's fully upgraded. All staff very helpful and very friendly. Every time we go aboard we always find the service so much better than the UK. The sea is amazing spent so nights walking up and the beach and my son spent his first holiday in Jamaica with all the locals! Go and have fun enjoy it, leave the hotel you are safe and explore the island!More
