This was an "okay" resort. It was under renovation when we were there. The food was "eh" and the drinks were very sweet. You certainly did not get your money's worth because one's stomach can only take so much sugar.

Spent 4 fabulous days at the Riu (May 24 - 28, 2015) and was not disappointed at all. Booked the Jr. Ocean View Suite on the 12 Floor - had a great view. Really sad to read about the many terrible reviews. Yes, it is a smaller RIU Resort, but it was classy, maintained well and had everything one needed... More

We were there may 28th-May 31 Location: hotel is beachfront, about half hour from the airport. A 5 minute walk to the Atlantis hotel with the casino and aquarium. If you want to see the aquarium go after 630 pm, it is free then. Room: we had a ocean view junior suite which was more like a glimpse of the... More

Went this past weekend for 4 days for a bachelorette party and had a great time! To start with the beach would be the best thing as that's where we spent most of the day. Plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas to go around and lots of help to get them where you want on the beach. Ocean is beautiful,... More

We went with a group of 8 (4 couples) ages 30 - 40, frequent travelers & we stayed 6 days. Rooms: We had room 501 while the view was ok (we are not really picky about that), the air conditioning was not good (FYI: you can not control the amount of air flow or temp in your room) therefore, everything...

Before I begin, having stayed at other Riu's, I am shocked at how disappointing the Riu Paradise Island was. This is lengthy, but worth the read! When we arrived, we checked in and everyone was very pleasant. However, no one ever even told us about any amenities the facility had. No one told us about the spa, no one told... More

The hotel, staff, and views are great! But the food was not. We stayed four days so we were only allowed to book 2 reservations at the specialty restaurant. The food at the specialty restaurants were really good, but the food at the buffet was terrible. It was so bad we went out to dinner one night to a local... More

Although the hotel sits on the beautiful Paradise Island, it was almost anything but ! Our grand trip started out that the hotel had totally lost our reservation! When they did give us a room, they put us in a small room, not the Jr. suite with superior ocean view that i had paid for. I had to go back... More

To start with, the Riu Palace was much better than I expected after reading other Trip Advisor reviews. The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly, the location was ideal, and the beach was perfect. My husband I chose to stay here based on the price and the fact that we were doing a lot of different off-site activities. The... More
