Overall it was a great experience. Dissappointed in the water activity experience - only 2 operational paddle boards and no jet skiis. The pool was great and the bar tenders were awesome. Yoga instructor seemed bothered. Food was ok - think I had higher expectations. The whole experience reminded me of being on a cruise ship. Ocean view room was amazing.

Good but not great.

The hotel was good. I liked the buffet more than the themes restaurants. The steaknhouse was a disappointment. The beach and poolside was great. This is the first 5☆ hotel I've been to where the pool was NOT HEATED. In the winter months it's not hot enough to warm the pool up to a more comfortable temp. It was chilly and the swim up bar area was cold. The staff was AWESOME! The entertainment committee, AWESOME!

The staff are very ignorant especially those at the restaurants. They don't take time to answer your questions or give clear directions. As a customer, staff make you feel like you are giving them extra work. Also I was disappointed on their maintenance service. We are arrived on thursday and our room TV wasn't working. I request it gets fix but of course no one took care of it till we left Monday. Another thing my mom requested an extra blanket the night before we left, she never got it. Overall, this resort needs to work on CUSTOMER SERVICE. Big up.to Bartenders and Entertainners. The night show was the BEST PART of the trip. Pool side is nice and clean. Rooms okay and variety of restaurants. However, the Mahoe Bay restaurant had a lot flies during lunch time

TV is a small CRT type extremely old. Tv broke diwn and took 2 days to repair. Mattreses were old and springs were noticeable and were felt through. Bathrooms did not have any ventilation and smelled. Food was abundant but not of good quality. The paint in the outside walls had large blisters everywhere. Jacuzzi in the Spa section was often out of service. This hotel was advertised as 4 star and it is at most 2.5. For the price paid it was a complete rip off.

Nice Hotel

Pros: The atmosphere and hospitality
Cons: The room smelled like a very strong marijuana oder. We had to move to another room
Location: We enjoyed the beach, the pool, the bars, the food and the entertainment. Therefore, we didn't have to go anywhere
I have stayed at this hotel several times. Each time I have had nothing but great experiences. My girlfriends loved it so much that they didn't want to leave...GREAT GIRLS TRIP!

Pros: To be honest, there not much to like since most of my time spent outside of the hotel. I was not able to see the full view.
Cons: Courtesy, as I mentioned that I have been to other hotels in Jamaica and there grand entrance were great. Rui grand entrance fails such qualities.
Location: Nearby were malls, but nothing to be excited about.
The room that was given to me didn't meet my expectation; it had an odor that was terrible. I booked for two double beds, and was given two single parted with less than 12" of each other, with one bedhead joining the two beds, "terrible." I returned back and complained at the front desk and they changed the room with a little better setting, I ride it out because I was there for an event. I have gone to other hotels in Jamaica and enjoyed the environments or atmosphere.
