Great Beach, Great Entertainment, Great Staff

Here is a quick breakdown for those considering RIU Palace - Negril. The food was very good. Our favorite was Krystal - the food and service were outstanding. The Japanese Place was not very good. We didn't eat at the other restaurants. Kemor at Krystal goes above and beyond. The buffets were very good, lots of variety - Mexican Night was the best! Damien and Mario were the best at breakfast and Crefton was outstanding in service and making us feel like we were the only people there. Just fantastic. The entertainment goes above and beyond - Happy Feet does aerobics that is fun and makes you feel less guilty for eating so much! The rest of the entertainment staff are so incredibly talented and warm. They plan out so much. All you need to do is say yes to them and you will have an amazing time. Go to their shows - they practice hard and it shows. Tracy was our housekeeper and she was absolutely amazing. The rooms are old, the beds are uncomfortable, the pillows are terrible (all a management issue) but she goes above and beyond to clean. Alex the Lifeguard is a history lesson on Jamaica that you don't have to pay for a class to learn. He made the beach a great place to be. Shoshay (spelling may be wrong) at the lobby bar is the sweetest young lady. She got cartoons on the TV for our 9 year old and went above and beyond. All of the servers are so nice. If you haven't gotten my tip yet= get to know the PEOPLE. They are there to make the experience great.
