I heard the Riu Montego Bay is plagued with constant noise from overhead aircraft.

Not sure how close the Riu is to the cruise port, but I was at the Sunset Beach Resort in February and saw loads of planes but don't recall anything but distant noise, nothing to cause you to raise your voice to talk.

That would be on the airport side of the Riu Montego ba (sandals is on the other side), and the site is tight, If you look at this picture

http://www.riu.com/en/binaris/XJM_MDL_100w_tcm55-107745.jpg

And this part of the environmental report when the Clubhotel was built shows the land Riu bought



Now there is a gully or something that runs from the small headland to a third of the way accross the bottom of the picture - to the right of the gully is all the Clubhotel, The palace will be on the bit with the circular path.

The tow pictures show the existing breakwater.

Lack of foresight on Riu's part - had they 'squared off' the clubhotel site so it stayed to the left of the headland, then they would have had a much more usable plot for the second hotel (unluss they had thier sites on the next bit of land west - and the owner saw the chance to make a killing and has killed his own future prospects instead.


By the way - Thomson have it for sale for winter 2013/2014 http://www.thomson.co.uk/destinations/caribbean/jamaica/jamaica/montego-bay/hotels/riu-palace-jamaica.html

I'll move this thread to the "Jamacian Chitter-Chatter Mon" forum.

Later edit:

This was supposed to happen 2010/2011 - so is 3 years later than expected
