My husband and I have been to a few other Caribbean islands, but this was our first time to Jamaica. We're so happy that we chose to stay at Riu Negril. (We stayed at Club Riu, not the Riu Palace. Riu has two resorts in Negril.) We've both worked in the resort and tourism industry for years and were very impressed that everyone at Riu Negril, from the bartenders, the entertainment staff, to the waiters really seemed like they all wanted to make sure we had a great time. Booking agents were available to help with excursions, and thankfully, they weren't pushy. The food was great with Jamaican dishes and plenty to appeal to the various international guests. We loved the jerk chicken stand right on the beach! For an all-inclusive, the alcoholic drinks were strong. Kudos to our favorite bartender, Charlie. The beach was beautiful with more than enough lounge chairs to go around. The only flaw was a leaky air-conditioner in our room, but we just put down a towel. No problem, mon. We'll definitely look into other Riu resorts for future vacations.
