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.

As with others I really can not understand what people found to complain about, the food the service and location where wonderful, the beach and the view could not be faulted Staff where friendly and took the time to make you feel really welcome The room was cleaned well everyday and the view was beautiful If I had any issue it would be that the choice of food on the 2nd week was less than the first and being in block 1could be noisy late at night The hotel staff even helped with the re homing of Molly the beach dogMore

It's a RIU
RIU's are amazing and perfect everywhere. Staff is great, buildings are kept up and clean. rooms are comfortable and relaxing. The food is as close to perfect as it can be. They try hard. I have been to 4 RIU's now, and love them all.More

Had a fab time!!
I just don't understand some of the awful reviews this hotel is getting!! We thought the hotel was great value for money! Spotlessly clean! Food was very good, so much to choose from, spoilt for choice! The bar pool was great and the entertainment team were very good and friendly. The beach is gorgeous, ok yes there is some seaweed but big deal! The live reggae band and entertainment at night was very good, great atmosphere!! Please don't be put off by bad reviews, we will definately return 1 day.More

We stayed at Riu Negril with our 16 month old daughter and were very pleased with the overall experience. The check in was prompt and well organized. We were lucky to have a room in the closest corner of Building 1, which was the closest to all the restaurants. The room happened to be on the first floor, which was ideal for the stroller. The room itself was very nice, with two double beds put together and enough space for a crib if you need one. The bathroom had two sinks and a removable shower head. The only issue I had is the lack of hot water about half of the time, especially during the peak shower times. The beach was nice with lots of chairs and natural shade from the trees. While we were there (mind you, the resort was not 100% full), we could always find a nice spot on the beach and didn't have to rush to the beach in the morning to put towels down.. There is good snorkelling right around the beach and you can see different fish, even small barracudas and sting rays. The food was fine. The buffet had a good selection, so there was always choice. The jerk chicken on the beach was awesome. We only went to one restaurant: the Steakhouse and we personally did not enjoy the food, so we just kept going to the buffet. The service was excellent. It was always easy to order a drink at the bar. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Same goes for the buffet staff, especially during dinner. The entertainment team worked really hard. They were keeping on schedule with all the planned activities and did their best to get people engaged. There were daily beach volleyball games, water aerobics, reggae dance lessons, darts and other games. We only made it once to the nightly show - the Circus and I was really impressed. They also had live music a few times during the week. The vendors on the beach can be quite persistent, but they will leave you alone if you tell them you are not interested. However, if you are looking to buy something from them be sure to bargain, because the first price that is named is quite outrageous. Also, be cautious of scams. I witnessed one lady get her hair braided and then she had to go back to her room to get money. Apparently there was a guy who followed her to the room and said he would collect the money for the braiding. She gave him the money and came back to the beach, where the original girl was waiting to get paid and said "she didn't know about anyone else collecting the money". So the poor lady had to go back to get more money and pay the second time. Later in the day I saw that girl and the "collector" guy walk together down the beach... so just be careful not to get scammed.. Aside for that, definitely a great place and I would love to go back there some day!More

Had a great time at the riu CLUBHOTEL, yes it does look a little tired but this is only the 10 year wear and tear. The hotel is exceptionally clean, the cleaning staff do a great job and are so friendly nothing is too much trouble. The buffet resturant was great we even had fresh lobster, again all the food is so fresh . The Italian restuarant is not really and Italian but the food was ok. The gourmet was very poor the food was luke warm . The steak house was great . The fresh jerk chicken on the beach was fantastic. All in all a great holiday , I had a bargain at Â£710 pp for 12 nights in November. 2014 The new Dreamliner is also very comfortable for a long journey.More
