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.

Good, needs improvements
First impressions nice bright hotel with a welcome drink on arrival. Checked in with a smile and no problems encountered at all. Reception staff are lovely and often asked how the holiday was going! Hotel is an hour or so from the airport (Driver dependent). We went out the first night with reservations, however had a brilliant night. Going out of the resort is absolutely fine, you can get a taxi into negril for about 2 US Dollars per person (red number plates are the official taxis). Rooms are nice, spacious and everything you need. We were told the hotel is due a revamp which will be welcomed in my opinion as they still have box tvs and air con was not the most up to date. The rooms were cleaned daily and esther the maid was brilliant, rooms were spotless. There are no lifts at this resort so anyone with babies and disabilities would need to request ground floor rooms. Pool area and pool bar are nice... recommend if you want a quiet time with no hassle from the entertainers then sit at the beach or the other pool (Pool without the poolbar). Breakfast selection is very good and definitely best meal of the day. Lunch time in shadows very good food and also there is a chicken hut on the beach that is good. Depending on your palet evening meals tend to lack creativity and selection can be limited, being in jamaica i expected better jamaican food if im being honest, thats not to say it was bad just needed a little bit more love in the food. Entertainment staff are very friendly and welcoming. Most games involve dancing (twerking). Evening entertainment was okay, external entertainers are the better evenings and the steel band and live bands are very good. Generally the hotel is very clean and well kept. No glasses are left around or cups. Plates are cleared pretty quickly. Rooms are immaculate. Excursions through Thomson were good, we went to ricks cafe, dunns River and bob marleys place. Overall a good holiday with some Minor tweeks would make it excellent. Stayed August 2014More

definitly going back!!!
first off, dont listen to some of the stuff that was written previously this was my first time in jamaica, and all I can say is I will definitly be back :) Everything was amazing!! the food was great, the beach was great, the parties were great. when we went there was a lot of couples and families, but we still had a blast. we met so many people, from the staff to the locals all were so friendly. the boat cruises were amazing so much fun and all the staff from Scuba CAribe were amazing.. the bartenders were the best, always making sure you had a drink in your hand, and always have a smile on your face. our room was in the third building, we stayed In 3232. amazing view of the ocean. it was a bit of a walk to the main area but it wasn't too bad because I met new people walking back and forth. there is no elevator so we had to walk up the stairs to the third floor but you get use to it. the weather was hot, hot, hot and it rained for about10 min then it was beautiful sun. the entertainment at night was so much fun.. I definitly recommend seeing the shows and getting involved with the pre shows :) I can keep going on about how amazing it was. if you booked here great choice! if you're thinking about it, DO IT!! :) what happens in jamaica, stays in jamaica..ya mon !!

Good stay - no wow factor though
My husband and I stayed at this hotel from Aug 9-13. We came through Signature Vacations as a last minute deal as our honeymoon plans for Hawaii were a dud due to the lovely double hurricanes headed for the islands. While I had a good time for my first time in Jamaica, I was not bowled over by the hotel. It has an interesting architecture - very Roman and Greek style. The reception staff was very helpful and courteous. Our room maid was great too. Most of our servers were upbeat and friendly, except for one or two here and there who were a little lackluster in their service and smiles. Bartenders were super friendly. Overall, I have no complaints in terms of the service that I received. In terms of the hotel room, I felt like this resort must be an older one, as the room seemed very dated. I caught a couple of spiders in the room on the first day. There was not a lot of countertop space in the bathroom, the bathtub looked a bit worn, and there is a wall dispenser that contains an all-in-one shampoo and body wash gel. Bottom line, bring your own toiletries if you are a girl. The room has those old big back TVs. All in all, I think the rooms need a major reno to bring it up to par to the newer and better resorts that it is competing with. The beach was very nice. There were a lot of lounge chairs, so we had no issues finding one, although the better located ones are taken up quite quickly. By the pool, it may be harder to get a lounge chair if the resort is packed. As this is during hurricane season, I guess the resort was not crowded to capacity, so it was manageable for us. Just be aware that thereâs a lot of seaweed in the lagoon, and lots of fishes come close to the shore sometimes. Great for snorkeling! Food is definitely an area for improvement. The specialty restaurants require 48-hr notice for reservations, which I think is quite unreasonable. My husband and I got to the resort close to midnight on August 9th. We could only make reservations for those restaurants as of 8am on the Sunday. Given that they have that 48-hr rule and that we were leaving on the Wednesday, we could only make reservations for Tuesday. Thankfully, the lady who manages reservations got us a reservation right after a cancellation came through for the Monday. Otherwise, we would have had the buffet food for 2 days in a row â which would not be so bad except that itâs the same food pretty much every night. Thereâs a lack of variety from day to day. Our stay was short, so it was not too bad. But I can imagine the feeling of redundancy for someone staying there for a week or more. The entertainment at the resort was quite nice. The live band added a nice feel to the evenings when we would go for a walk. The night shows were fun too for the most part. The entertainment group was one hardworking group â they were so energetic from daytime into the nighttime. Kudos to them! I read a review previously which had a good suggestion: upgrade the locks to a key card system. This one doorkey situation can be inconvenient. Also, another reviewer had complained about the drive from Montego Bay to Negril. Just be mentally prepared for the 1h20min bus drive. Sleep, sightsee or read. Itâs a comfortable AC full size bus if you go with Sunwing, so just try to enjoy the drive. I donât know if I would come back here unless the resort is renovated. But, it was not all bad. The beach was really nice, the weather was just right. With some improvements, this resort could be so much more!More

Great Jamaican hospitality
My family and I spent 3 days at Riu Negril last week and enjoyed great Jamaican hospitality and more food than we could manage :-). Everyone was very helpful and pleasant. The only thing we could ask for was more child-friendly entertainment. Some of the shows were too adult in their content and there were many families on property with young children.More
