Riu Montego Bay - Adult-Only All-Inclusive

Looking to stay at the Riu Montego Bay - Adult-Only All-Inclusive?

There's a saying in Jamaica that goes something like this, 'Once you go, you know.' The magic of the island is intoxicating, much like the feeling I experienced when I set foot in the Hotel Riu Palace, a jewel perched on the shores of Montego Bay.

The sun hadn't quite peaked on the day of my arrival, but the warmth of the Jamaican hospitality was already in full bloom. Here at the Riu Palace, it's adults only, a haven where romance and camaraderie flourished in equal measure. With a promise of Wi-Fi that actually works, around-the-clock room service, and infinity pools that kissed the azure sky, I knew this was my kind of unforgettable.


Stepping into my room was akin to stepping into a personal palace. Balcony views unfurled the dazzling ocean, an endless canvas of cobalt and teal. The rooms, over 200 in all, were designed with precision and comfort. Luxuries weren't spared - plush sofas, a stocked coffee machine, a sparkling bathroom with amenities, and the soft hum of the air conditioner.

The days that unfolded were a blend of euphoria and relaxation. From my perch on the deck chair, I soaked in the Jamaican sun, its warmth seeping into my skin. The infinity pool, glistening under the tropical sun, was a siren's call I couldn't resist. I loved that they had a swim-up bar, a little pleasure that added to the unending allure of the place.


Evenings were reserved for activities that sparked joy. Live music, the soul of Jamaica, often echoed around the resort, inviting guests to sway to the rhythm. A quick visit to the Renova Spa, a mere few steps away from the hotel, meant indulging in rejuvenating treatments that melted my stress away.

The culinary journey at the Hotel Riu Palace Jamaica was an adventure unto itself. Japanese, Italian, Fusion - you name it, they had it. The steakhouse stood out with their succulent steaks that practically melted on my tongue. And for an experience that was the epitome of romance, they curated a private dinner on the beach - just me, the love of my life, and the mesmerizing backdrop of the ocean.

During my stay, I ventured out to soak up the culture of Jamaica. From the reggae-infused SumFest in Montego Bay to Glistening Bay where the plankton illuminate the water like a star-lit sky, the island's diverse offerings only enriched my vacation.

But the highlight? That was undoubtedly the #RiuParty at the Hotel Riu Montego Bay. Parties that got my feet tapping and heart pumping to the rhythm of top DJs and incredible performances. The best part, it was all-inclusive - just like the spirit of Jamaica.

From the white shores to the rhythm of reggae, Hotel Riu Palace Jamaica is more than a vacation, it's an experience - a slice of paradise served with a Jamaican flair. And I wouldn't trade it for anything. As they say in Jamaica, 'Mi soon come back!'
