The staff was very welcoming from the start, food was very tasty. Beds weren’t as comfortable and towels were never replaced but we enjoyed it overall. Rooms were sound proof especially early mornings when we were sleeping and maintenance/housekeeping were working. Definitely recommend this resort to friends and family.

Rui Montego Bay Inclusive

Pros: The Scenery, lots of bars, lots of dancing, and friendly staff.
Cons: Credit points to be given upon arrival and explained what it could be used for.
Location: Location is perfect. You could go to the little strip mall and bargain. Some of the people who sold things were aggressive.
We had fun at the Rui, however, was disappointed that we did not receive our coupons for 460 credit points until the end of our stay when we couldn't use it. The Tv's were outdated (analog). Lots of things to do and the scenery was excellent. The jerk chicken was awesome. It was difficult in getting into Little Italy restaurant, On one of the nights, the steak house was closed. We did have excellent services otherwise. Staff was friendly and full of smiles.

Well I'll start by saying the one good thing at this hotel is the food is outstanding. There's a chef named Mr. Dukal Brown and he throws down. With that said, everything else from the oceanfront room I rented to the staff was substandard. The rooms are outdated and falling apart and my first room smelled like mildew/mold. After being moved the next room had a rocking ceiling fan with exposed wires, a broken refrigerator and television remote. There's no poolside service which leaves you having to wait on long lines at the bar. Unacceptable! When I go on vacation I'm looking to be catered too and for rest and relaxation, which I felt was hindered by the poor service and lack of accommodating spirit. P.S. the entertainment was pretty good!

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.
