Paddle up to the swim-up bar in the free-form pool at Riu Montego Bay and pause a moment to gaze beyond the white beach. There, a red, yellow and blue sail of a free hotel catamaran dips and rises again as the boat slices through the water. Only three miles from downtown Montego Bay, the resort offers just the right blend of relaxation and exhilaration. To top things off, cool Atlantic breezes keep temperatures comfortable all day.
Snorkeling is a favorite among the all-inclusive activities at this resort. But when you fall in love with the bright colors and muted sounds of the underwater world, it might be time to consider a complimentary scuba lesson. If you prefer the thrill of wind and water together, check out a windsurfing rig or kayak.
If unwinding is your goal, nothing compares to a beachside massage at one of the open-air cabanas. Renova Spa offers a complete range of services, from facials to hydrotherapy and waxing to nail treatments. Why not share a massage with your honey in one of the double cabins?
Stayed at the Riu Montego Bay resort from Oct 10-13. Had an absolute blast, the service was great, the rooms were clean and spacious. All the food and drinks that we tried were awesome. The pools were very nice, with a variety of activities going on. We had a great time and look forward to planning another trip here in the future! Plus all my friends want to go now 🙂

The Riu Montego Bay is a wonderful place to stay. Beautiful lobby, great food and a staff that can’t do enough for you. When my wife and I went we upgraded to an ocean front room where we could just sit on the patio and watch the ocean. The Wedding Gazebo was close by and we got to watch numerous ceremonies. Whether by the pool or on the beach staff was always there to see that you had anything you needed. Two thumbs up!!!!!!!! Room Tip: Go ocean front if you can.
