The Hotel Riu Palace Tropical Bay (All Inclusive 24h), is located at the famous Bloody Bay beach in Negril, Jamaica, one of the best resorts in the area par excellence. Its Victorian style inspires harmony and calmness surrounded by a 47,000 m2 garden.

There‘s no better way to relax than in a Riu Palace with all the options for relaxation it has to offer. The complex includes two fresh water swimming pools, a solarium terrace, gym, Jacuzzi, sauna, the “Renova Spa” wellness centre and a vast beach where you can sunbathe and enjoy a drink.

The 24h All Inclusive system gives you the opportunity to sample the best Jamaican cuisine prepared by our chefs for the buffet restaurant or the delicious menus in the themed restaurants: a wide variety to satisfy every palate.

We recommend you to try out the entertainment programme that the Riu Palace Tropical Bay has organised for all ages. For adults and children alike, there are endless activities to do as a family, couple or with friends. The complex includes two tennis courts, table tennis, a gym, volleyball, windsurfing, sailing, snorkelling, kayaking, bodyboarding, diving and other water activities. For the children, there is a playground near the beach and an entertainment programme where they can enjoy a range of activities with our entertainers. Jamaica harbours many secrets and wonderful places. You mustn’t miss excursions to the thermal springs of Rhodes, Hall Plantation, the crowded Seven Mile Beach, The Great Morass where you can see endemic birds and American crocodiles, or Roaring River, a cave where you can swim and see harmless bats. If you like to play golf, the Negril Hills course is perfect for enjoying a game. In Negril you can also go cycling through the hills which offer splendid photo opportunities. .

Fall in love with Negril and have your best holiday at the Riu Palace Tropical Bay.

    Perfect 🍹

    We are into day 5 and this hotel is fab. The beach is beautiful and makes a great stroll first thing before breakfast. The jerk chicken is tasty and food in Buffett ok. If you have booked you won’t be disappointed

    Best Jamaican holiday

    Luckily enough to been to about 17 all inclusive hotels around carrabean and Mexico, and we,ve enjoyed every one but this one does stand out from the rest. Can't honestly think of a bad thing to say about this hotel. Food, drink, cleaners, beach staff, everyone deserves a pat on the back. We don't, generally, go back to the same hotel but I can see us making exception to this one.

    Brilliant place

    Myself and boyfriend came here and are just into our 2nd week. First time in Jamaica and absolutely love it. The room is spotless and we have a garden view but can partially see the sea. The optics in the room is definitely a bonus. The entertainment is good but wish it could carry on a bit later. The service from all the staff is excellent. The beach and ocean is amazing as are the sunsets. The food in the buffet has been very good and we have only tried the steak restaurant which was delicious. Haven't tried the Italian or Japanese as the man has to wear long trousers which we were not aware of. So far into our 2nd week I would definitely recommend.

    Awesome vacation

    We stayed here with our family and have loved every minute! Our rooms were very clean and nice. The food was excellent! So much to choose from and everything was great. Especially LOVED the entertainment! From previous review- the staff were anything but sleazy... they talked with us daily, included us in activities and went out of their way to make our stay perfect! Loved peanuts, chocolate thunder, juicy j, chicken, smiley and everyone else included in staff. They did their very best to have different shows for everyone’s taste of style. Loved the steel drums show as well. The staff work very hard to entertain and have a good time! We will definitely be back but next time we will bring more family and friends to share in our vacation. We hope to see all the staff again! Thanks for the memories!
