Riu Palace Jamaica roomI just returned from a trip to the new adults only Riu Palace Jamaica in Montego Bay. This hotel is only 10 minutes from the airport and is located next to the Riu Montego Bay. The Palace is a fairly small hotel with only 238 rooms built in a U shape. I just loved how easy it was to get around the resort. It took us only 3 minutes to get from our room to any part of the hotel.

Our room was very nice with a jacuzzi tub and large balcony. We had a view of the main pool and a partial view of the ocean. Room service was in early and did a wonderful job. The mini bar service does offer Miller Lite in case you need a break from the traditional Red Stripe beer. The balcony looks over the main area of the hotel so they are definitely not as private as other hotels. We did like being able to see what was happening and we actually watched 2 different shows from the comfort of our balcony.

I thought the food was great. NO RESERVATIONS were required for dinner. This is a huge change on the normal Riu Palace dining process and we were able to dine where and when we wanted each evening. I thought Krystal was the best a l carte restaurant but I truly enjoyed each of them. The main buffet is where you will eat for breakfast and lunch. The buffet offered everything and the service was very good. The room service menu is very limited, however they do have food in the Aqua (sports) Bar available 24 hours a day.

Riu Palace Jamaica pool

 

The hotel has 2 pools. One pool has a swim up bar and both have pool waiter service. The beach here is beautiful and the water was always calm and inviting. This is not a long stretch of beach that you can walk along but more of a little pocket that you can swim and snorkel in. Bring your floatable and lounge in the ocean. The water is so calm and much more refreshing then the pool water.

 

 

This hotel is pretty active at night and can be a little loud due to the size and layout. If you like small hotels that are easy to manage and a nice calm ocean this is the place for you. I have been to many Riu hotels and this one ranks right at the top for me. You do see some airplanes come by 4-5 times per day but it did not bother me a bit, I actually enjoyed seeing them. Call me today and let me send you to Paradise in Jamaica.
