Soft white sand comes to your doorstep at this beachfront hotel. There’s a relaxed vibe to the place, though it’s just 10 minutes’ drive from Montego Bay and its line-up of shops, restaurants and nightlife. The hotel sits next door to the Riu Montego Bay and, as such, you can move between the two for bars and restaurants. When it comes to the huge pool, though, you’ll probably want to stay put.


Activity-wise, there’s a strong slant to sea-based things like snorkelling, sailing, kayaks and catamarans – all available at the Riu Montego Bay. You can also get a free scuba diving lesson in the pool.
