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.

Just gets better!
My husband and I returned to this amazing place on 24th Feb for 10 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We got married at this hotel on that date 5 years previous and always vowed to go back, I had checked Tripadvisor in the months leading up to our holiday and must say was a little bit worried as some of the reviews were awful, all I can say is did they actually stay in the same place because we couldn't fault the place. My husband had emailed the hotel asking if we could have a sea view room which was given and what an amazing view we had of the whole beach. We asked to purchase a bottle of bubbly for the room to celebrate and the manager very kindly gifted it to us and had it delivered to our room along with the glasses on ice :-) this was just one of the many kind acts we experienced during our stay. The food has in my opinion has improved ten fold and it was very good the first time but this time was consistent with what you would expect from a fine restaurant. Yes the rooms are a little tired but were comfortable and very clean, they are due to be refurbished this coming July. The fridge is re stocked every other day as are the optics. You will never be short of a drink alcoholic or soft. Hair driers and straighteners you bring from home may not work here at all as I found with mine and was mortified but yet again another act of kindness from the staff here, Alicia on reception brought her own in for me to borrow during our stay WOW!!!!! Our housekeeper Esther done a great job giving us a clean and tidy room to return to after a day on the beach with fresh sheets and towels daily. The only small gripe we had with the room was the aircon when it worked well it was great but sadly most days it didn't., The beach is lovely a little thin of sand in a few places but still lovely. We walked every day along the whole bay and saw many fish, starfish and stingrays they come into feed in the mornings and kindly posed for photos before swimming off. The market traders on the beach can be a little persistent at times but a firm no thank you usually works and as they saw us daily taking our walk along the beach they would wave and have a laugh with us. It's all part of the Jamaican experience. All in all I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Like I mentioned above the hotel is due to close this July for 4 months to be refurbished so can only get better. They have got their customer service skills perfect so with the refurb this will definitely be a 5 star. EnjoyMore

overall good vacation
We arrived to the Riu Club and they wanted to upgrade us to the Riu Palace because they were having a special at the time. We chose not to upgrade because we had stayed at the Riu palace a few years back and we wanted to see how this hotel would be. The staff was very friendly. The buildings roofs look a bit run down. I think they would look better if they were re painted. Even the purple paint of the buildings would look better re painted. I did hear that they will be closing down to make things look nicer come August. Which i think is an excellent idea. The rooms inside are okay. They are not bad. One of the sinks in the room was leaking everytime we turned on the faucet but whatever. We really didnt complain about that. The safe was broken and they immediatly came to try to fix it. By the third time we called it was fixed. All this took about a day. And the front desk called and made sure everything was okay. We also got a fruit plate delivered to our room for being repeat customers of the Riu which was really nice on their part. I can not complain about how we were treated because everyone was super friendly. I feel like everyone went out of their way to make sure our stay was good. The ocean was okay. I have to say that the ocean water at the RIU PALACE is much clearer then were we stayed at the Club Hotel. So if you are looking for clear blue water stay at the Palace. If you really dont mind then stay at the Club Hotel. The entertainment staff was great. The person who stood out the most out the entertainment group was spotlight. He was just awesome!!!! He made our vacation. He is so much fun!!!!! I cant really complain about this hotel. The only thing is that it was a downgrade from the other hotels that we have stayed at. Like i said the inside of the rooms are not bad. But the outside of the buildings need to be touched up because it looks run down. The food was like every other place we stayed at thats all inclusive. Not bad at all. If i was to choose and go back I think I would stay at the Palace because of the nicer ocean water and a bit cleaner of a look on the outside. But who knows Im sure once they are done renovating the place it will look alot nicer. Hope my review helps all you who are planning on staying here.More
We were very satisfied with our week at the Riu Negril. We booked an ocean view room and got just that- building 1, room 1149, facing the beach which gave us awesome sunrises AND sunsets, and a closer walk to the restaurants and lobby. Food very good, drinks plentiful and our room was well taken care of. Lots of hot water and pressure on the shower, good a/c but only a small old-style tv. Not an issue cause who's watching tv in Jamaica anyways. Beach provided great snorkelling with stingrays,starfish, sea urchins and lots of fish to see. Beach vendors only slightly annoying. Great location to visit Seven Mile Beach and Rick's Cafe, long ride to Montego Bay and the airport- approx. 1 1/12 hours. Beautiful resort and great vacation!More

I guess I can't really say this All inclusive was bad. It was average. I realize you get what you pay for. I didn't want to pay a lot to go on this vacation and got what I paid for. The best part of the resort is the food. It was great. I only ate at the buffet and Steak House but both places get an A+. I know most don't like buffets but it was always different and fresh. Even though the amount of people at the resort they didn't drop the ball on handling the mass amount of people. I also though the service was great. Never had to wait for beverages, food or a clean room. I think the resort was clean and pretty well maintained. It was hard to find a chair by the pool at any time. I would also say it was hard to find a chair on the beach at times also but not impossible. But to say this was a great resort... No. Did I get what I was expecting? Almost. No complaints but no back flips either.More

Stayed at the Riu Negril in February 2014 with a group of friends and had a great time! The hotel and staff were wonderful. Our room was clean, the beach was clean, the food & drinks were awesome with a great variety to choose from. The Check-In and Out process was a smooth process. The swim up pool bar was very nice. You could always find a chair at the beach. We would definitely go back to Jamaica and stay at the Riu.More
