Riu Negril I spent three nights at this resort in early August 2007. I like all Riu Resorts that I have seen and this one is no exception. They have all the same restaurants, bars and night club that all Rius have. The rooms are the same as other Riu Resorts, the same in room inclusions (liquor dispenser and mini bar) and the same great entertainment staff. Having stayed at this resort with nothing to do but hang out I got to know it a bit better than others.

I have seen water aerobics at other resorts. I have never seen it like this place does it. They had a DJ on the beach, one guy doing the routine on the beach and about 70 people in the water. They did water aerobics about 4 times a day. The morning routine was like that and the rest was just like any other resort with just a couple of people in the pool.

I have seen beach parties many times. Not like Riu Negril though. They brought out a Reggae band, a make shift bar, and just had a good time for about 2 hours. They did it right next to the Jerk Hut (where you can get some really good jerk chicken) so you had everything Jamaican right there. You had the chicken, the rum, the beach and the music. I have to say I was impressed but I wouldnt doubt that they do the same at the other Riu Resorts in the island.

The resort is laid out a bit differently than other Riu resorts. They have all the lobby, restaurants, bars, gift shops, spa, theatre, and disco in one building. All the rooms are located in four buildings streaching out to the left of the main building if you are facing the beach. Along your walk to the last room block you have a beach bar. There are two pools at this resort. One is used for activities and the other has a swim up bar and Jacuzzis.

Why you would book this resort: You are looking for a resort that has a lot to do where you can take your whole family. You are looking for an affordable resort as a couple.

Reasons why you would not book this resort: You are looking for an adults only resort. You are going to book another Riu Resort.
