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.

Beautiful beach, wonderful accommodations

My family (25-year-old sister, 70-ish year old parents, one with mobility issues) traveled here in September 2014. This place is wonderful. The staff go out of their way to be helpful, the nightly "shows" are actually entertaining, and the place itself is well maintained. Is it getting old? Yes. Do the rooms need updates? Yes. But was it clean and enjoyable? Definitely. The food was great (the buffet was actually better than the other restaurants, and I'm not a buffet lover). The drinks were decent enough. And the people were hospitable. Did I mention the beach? All I'd read were complaints about how Bloody Bay is all just giant weeds and rocks. Aside from some seaweed patches here and there, this was totally not the case. I swam out 1/8 mile and could still see fish and turtles below me. Beautiful white sand and jerk chicken served daily beach-side. The pools were nice, too. All in all, I would definitely recommend Riu Negril. We booked our trip through Apple Vacations and received a great deal for a memorable trip.More

Had a Wonderful Time.... Great, Economical Place to stay...

I review the area and Hotel prior to booking, and I chose this one for it's price and all inclusive benefits. I do have some pointers for all who wish to go... 1. Bring your own insulated cup or mug, Tervis ware works wonderful. All the bars fill up your own instead of using those small cups, also cuts down on litter (very green hotel) 2. Wear slip resistant shoes/sandals. The facility is all tiled for ease of cleaning and sanitation. 3. Reserve your dinner specialty restaurants IMMEDIATELY, there are three. We went to book on Thursday and they were all booked until Sunday. There are only two seating per night in each, so space is limited. 4. Pack at least one pair of pants if you want to reserve at Sir Anthony's, no shorts allowed. 5. Keep your beach lounge chairs at least 20 feet from the water's edge. Vendors aren't allowed to approach you off the water's edge. 6. Bring a waterproof bag or storage for your important stuff. Afternoon rain showers/storms are common. 7. YOU WILL BE APPROACHED TO BUY POT.... like everywhere, first will be your bus driver... just say no..they are fine with that (Fist Pump: RESPECT MON) 8. Expect a 1-1/2 hour bus ride, with one stop for potty break, and one hotel (Grand Paladium and it's sister on the same grounds) prior to ClubHotel Riu Negril. The buffet in the Garden room is wonderful with it's cultural diversity and local flavors, we only ate there, there is something open all day and night.. the coffee is wonderful and they use hot milk, so watch out for that first sip, it's hot... fresh juices, cucumber, beet, banana at breakfast and you can make your own mixture. Vegetarian food is available too. Have a great time and remember why do you need WiFi if you're on vacation... it's like all the amenities of a cruise but on land. Nice shows with alot of audience participation.. Don't Worry, Be Happy ... and have a great vacation...More

Beach picture not as pictured

The picture used on travel sites for this resort must have been taken many years ago, and is not what you get. The beach and color of the ocean is first thing I look for when booking a vacation and I was very disappointed. There is so much growth of sea grass and sea weed it looks like lake water. You do not enjoy your feet being swallowed by mushy slimey stuff. It is a bay and there are no waves which is nice to float but not what you go to the caribbean for. I have lakes where I live. We ended up spending half our trip on 7 mile beach paying for food and drinks at bars with the view. 7 mile beach has the caribbean color, but do not think you can take a relaxing stroll down the beach. Vendors selling from fruit to jewelry to drugs will approach you every 30 feet. Stay on your chairs at Burbon Beach and you are good. Staff will run unwanted vendors off. Took catamaran to Rick's cafe and loved it. My advise check prices. I booked for $70 through my Apple rep in hotel then found out scuba place on beach had one for $40. Not sure what I got for that extra $30, whats done s done, but ask what you are getting so you have a choice. Resort...starting construction in a couple of months and it needs updating. The staff at this resort were extremely friendly and helpful. This staff overall was one of the best out of all the resorts I have visited. Food...hit or miss. Nothing but the coffee was out of this world, but you don't starve. Do not skip breakfast. Burbon Beach had best jerk chicken and drinks much cheaper than Margaritaville. The $13 burger at Margaritaville is worth it after eating resort burgers though. Rooms kept clean and mini fridge was stocked most of the trip, had to ask once. If you smoke this is a non-smoking resort. If this was mentioned in the description I missed it. You can only smoke on your balcony if you are in bldg 4 (a walk) or on the beach. The staff would remind you of the rules, but were not aggressive about upholding. The alcohol selection was cheap and it was hard not to smoke when you drink cheap liquor. We bought a couple bottles to have better drinks.More

Costa Del Jamaica!!!!

On arrival at the resort.....I was not sure if a was walking into neo-classical structure or a colonial plantation owners house.....a mix of architectral styles that do not mix well.....although the staff were pleasent and corteous at all this made up for intial appearance....after checking in we wondered down to the room...I spotted the rows and rows of sun loungers....that were more a sight I would expect to see in the Costa Del Sol. On arriving at the room desperate for a cup of tea...I spotted there row of optics that were in the room but alas no tea or coffee making facilities...So when in Jamaica I thought I would have a wonder down the beach and try and find the elusive tea and coffee.....on walking down to the beach i was approached by some locals that said "Would like some happy cigarettes", so no tea or coffee that i was desperate for...but I could of got drunk and high on marijuana...all within 1 hour of arriving at the resort....... The food was good to start off with but started to become very repative....and it ws noted that certain food types were obviously in short supply as they seem ed to run out during the week...The dining area it self if seated outside was have to appreciate that when in Jamaica there is going to be wild birds....which I didn't mind....trying at every oppurtinty to help themselves to any left over food. What I didn't appreciate that all the bird faeces was never cleaned up in the outside dining area...although the rest of the resort seemed to be throughly cleaned apart from the outside dining top if off to be found by a member of staff prior to leaving and be asked for tip P***** me i would imagine it would anybody... The grounds of the hotel were at there most peaceful first thing in the morning around 1000hrs the music was blaring.....yes some people want this but not myself and the lunch time the litter bins had turned into lazy waiters for all the empty drinks glasses and plates that clients couldn't or wouldn't take back to the restaruant. The Hotel had strict no smoking policy apart from in designated areas apparently...although most clients would just go and find quite spot and smoke their cigarettes or "happy cigarettes". The staff would uphold and tell guests were theys should smoke..... So if you holiday company tell you that you are going to a quite resort question them on this as around spring break time the resort is apparently full of Americans or Candians...on mission to get drunk and perform......and is what my wife and myself classed as club 18 - 80..... A honest oponion fo a so called 4 Star Resort.....just thing what you want before you book...More

Our first visit, but won't be our last!!! Great place!!

We stayed here on our first trip to Jamaica and we can't wait to go back! We stayed from March 24- March 28, 2014. The only problem was our trip was too short!! Every bite of food we tried was delicious, the entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful! Our room was beautiful! We are currently planning another visit with more of our family in February 2015!! We can't wait to go back!!More
