The ClubHotel Riu Negril is pulled up against the sands of Bloody Bay Beach, so it’s got a front-row seat to the Caribbean Sea. Plus, if you want to get out and about, Negril’s town centre is less than a 20-minute taxi ride from the property.
Most of the action happens around the 2 swimming pools, which come edged with palms. One of the pools has the added luxury of a swim-up bar. And, if you’ve got little guests in tow, there’s a small playground and a paddling pool on offer.
When it comes to food, the buffet restaurant lays on international spreads and regular themed nights. You can choose to go down the à la carte route, too – there’s a gourmet restaurant, a steakhouse and an Italian eatery. Whatever you do, don’t miss the grills on the beach – guests rave about the jerk chicken.
Lastly, the hotel is having a revamp ready for November 2014, and promises to look fresh and modern when it's complete.

Rat in our room!
We stayed at the club riu Negril this February 2014 (our second visit to the hotel). When we arrived we were allocated rooms in block 1 on floor 2 (3rd floor). Unfortunately the air conditioning was not working in our first room and therefore on day 3 we moved across the corridor into a sea view room - complementary of the hotel. Unfortunately, after spending a night in the room we returned to find a large rat in our room. The rat had been in the room overnight with us as I has reported hearing funny noises. Unfortunately, the rat had been in my handbag which I had to leave behind along with another few items that had urine on them. Management were called and I have to say they did deal with the problem very well and we were moved the following morning to the rui palace down the road. Overall, the hotel is very clean, staff are very friendly and the beach is beautiful! It's such as shame it had to be spoiled.More
Great Food, nice clean rooms, beach a bit swampy sometimes
We were 6 people from US & Canada. Thoroughly enjoyed food, rooms and beach views. 1st night my husband got eaten alive by sand fleas. We called him Spot for the rest of the trip. No one else was bothered except myself, but not until almost the last night. Holy itchy, and pretty gross looking. Home for around 10 days now and they have finally faded. BRING BUG SPRAY. But be warned, you will not know you have been bitten until the next day and like I said not all of us were chomped on. I would recommend this resort, so beautiful as the resort is spread out along the ocean front. Had the lamb chops 2 nights at the Specialy restaurant. YUMMM!!More

A/C never worked in our room
The people were great. The food was OK but the A/C in our room never worked. We called the desk and they said maintenance was there but we never saw them and we never had any cool air. It only blew air. Friends in the next rooms had cool air but we where there seven days and had none. If not for the ceiling fan we would not have made it more than s few days. The room was nice and the staff where great but I will not return just because of the A/C issue. While we did not spend a whole lot of time in the room, while we where there is was very uncomfortable and sleeping in the heat was not fun.More

Our 2014 Vacation
We went to Jamaica this year for our 10 day vacation. We Loved it so much we are planning on returning again in 2015. Our room was a Suite, which we had not expected. It was spacious and we had an Ocean front view also. The staff was lovely and so friendly and kind. Polite, oh my! The food was also very good, even in the main area dining. Quite Elegant. We also enjoyed the steak house. We did several excursions, but the best was Swimming with the Dolphins.More

Riu Negril Yeah Mon
Where to start? I was very apprehensive before going due to some of the reviews on here. Needn't have worried. Yes this resort is tired in places, but its well known its closing for refurb. Rooms were clean and spacious, in fact everywhere was pretty spotless. Food was great in both the buffet and a la carte. Jerk chicken on the beach was fab. Service can be a little hit and miss, however I put this down to lack of staff over lack of effort. The beach was great, vendors friendly, we chartered a trip with captain charlie, small boat but great day, well worth it. Check out office of nature along the beach for a change of scenery and delish lobster (much better than don lobster imo). There are 2 pools, 1 has a swim up bar which I normally enjoy on holiday, however thanks to some over zealous "spring breakers" who spent 8 hours solid screaching and "clouding"the pool. A shame really, I like a party like anyone else but the behaviour I seen in that pool was disgusting. Thankfully it did not spill over into the other pool. Having booked with Thomson in Scotland, our rep was Christine and she was fabulous. I would go back in a heartbeat and at half the price of most of the hotels in neighbouring 7 mile beach I thought it was great value. Yea Mon!More
