Resort Profile

An isolated beach resort along Bloody Bay, on the far north end of the Negril coastline in western Jamaica, the all-inclusive Riu Negril caters well to couples and families looking to unwind; the atmosphere here is more laid-back, especially for a Riu resort. There isn’t much in the surrounding area, the beach is only decent in overall quality (there are plenty of palm trees for shade, but no umbrellas or palapas; the beach also often has seaweed and can harbor vendors), the food is mediocre at best, and the spread-out grounds and lack of elevators aren’t ideal for less mobile guests; but the property offers three swimming pools, a swim-up bar, good rooms for the price, a solid fitness center, a small on-site casino, a sports bar, a kids club, and a small spa. Rooms come with liquor dispensers, minibars, and private balconies or terraces. Activities include scuba diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, parasailing, tennis, and beach volleyball (although the volleyball court is subpar).

Guests returning to the U.S. can take the COVID-19 antigen test on-site. There is no additional cost for all adults and children. This service is available at all Riu resorts in Mexico (except Riu Plaza Guadalajara), Jamaica, Aruba, and Punta Cana and is provided by an accredited medical testing lab that complies with the requirements of the CDC. Test results are received within 72 hours prior to departure, as required by the CDC. In the event of a positive test, Riu Hotels will provide an extension of up to 10 days at no cost.

The TripValue score compares a resort’s Overall Beach Resort Rating to its average room price (which we express as the Price-Implied Rating). It tells you if the resort is relatively underpriced (a positive TripValue), overpriced (a negative TripValue), or fairly priced (an Even TripValue), on average.
