ClubHotel Riu Negril


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.

Okay resort, but food was not good.

The room was nice and clean. The staff is nice, but not the friendliest. The food is so bland. There really wasn't anything that had a lot of flavor. We were so disappointed in the food. The entertainment every night is good though. Overall it was a good stay, but the food was the bad part.More

Romantic holiday

We stayed for two weeks and had excellent weather. The beach is good with crystal clear water, you an walk down to the other RIU hotels and use their facilities. Booby cay island is definitely worth a trip and for $20 you can pay the locals to cook a lobster on the beach for you. Dolphins are also well worth a day out and if you booked through a tour guide ou will probably be able to get a discount. The rafting trip is also excellent and really relaxing. The only problem with the trips is that they expect a tip at every opportunity. Restaurant wise, food was good but nothing more than good- got a bit boring at times. However the beach jerk bar was amazing - we went every day and couldn't get enough. Definitely recommend More

Recommend, good value, ignore overly negative reviews

I have been to Negril every year for the past 7 years and am familiar with all inclusive resorts from traveling to other countries as well. We always stay at Couples Swept Away, now with a baby we needed to find a family resort that allows children. I booked the Riu Negril for familiarity of the Riu bran, location in Negril and the value for the dollar. I read some negative reviews prior to going on the trip that made me a little worried, but as I expected, am was correct, I should have ignored them. The resort is not the nicest all inclusive I have ever stayed at, but is priced appropriately(difference between our usual Couples resort was 1500 less). The resort does not contain luxury rooms (being updated right now) or top of the line restaurants. Remember though, Negril is intended to be the beach lovers, person who wants to just chill paradise, not a show off luxury experience (there are the right placed for those resorts too). I was 100% satisfied with the room and the resort, along with the layout. I do recommend asking for a room in the 100 or 200 block, just a little closer to the restaurants. I would definitely return to this resort, I felt comfortable with my 8 month old daughter there, all the staff was welcoming and friendly, bartenders friendly as well. The food was comparable to a cruise ship, good food, everything tasted great (jerk pork and chicken!!)- nothing over the top like a French restaurant or anything though. Some reviews complain about the alcohol being Jamaican brands or weak drinks. To me this is a ridiculous complaint, you're on vacation in the sun which makes them seem weaker. Also, its an all inclusive-tell them to pour the whole bottle in there if you would like. The beach did have some seaweed in the water, I didn't need any water shoes, there is plenty of room to swim around without having to worry about going in the weeds. I do recommend swimming beyond the weeds to the coral reef and snorkeling, I did so daily and saw new sea life daily. Go to Negril, relax, chill like a Jamaican and enjoy this resort.More

Beautiful Resort - Great Staff!

Everything was Irie! A wonderful resort with great personality! The staff was great, the rooms wonderful, and the food was good! Loved the jerked chicken on the beach! I hear the resort is getting a facelift and it should be even better. Was there with the family (10 total) last Thanksgiving week and we all had a blast! We have stayed at many RIU hotels and this one was one of the most fun places ever.More
