Loved the Bahamas, but was disappointed in the RIU. The hotel was listed as 4 stars, but was misrepresented. The décor is dated which I could have overlooked had it not been for the other negative experiences. Most of the staff seems irritated if you ask them for the basics, such as a glass instead of plastic at the only... More

Here is my view, we (my brother and I) had a very nice time at this hotel and in Paradise Island. I rated this property as a 3 star, only because it does not have any amenities on the beach. If you are coming from Nassau Airport, I would suggest taking a taxi to the hotel, no wait then. Our... More

The Riu Palace Paradise Island Bahamas was the perfect quiet get away! The Room was very clean and remained that way the entire trip the housekeeping was excellent! We had a fully stocked bar in our room that was refilled daily and part of our allinclusive package. The staff was very helpful. I was pleased with each employee that I... More

I am writing this review to redeem the Riu from the negative reviews. We stayed for 7 days in early June 2015 and I will say that this place is great!! For reference, I have stayed at the Riu Palace in Cabo and Riu Palace Tropical Bay in Jamaica and this hotel lives up to the Riu standards. This hotel... More

The Bahamas is beautiful but not the RIU, I went there for a winter getaway, the hotel itself is old needs to be renovated. The food was awesome though, the staff were ok, The only highlight of this trip was being able to go into the hotel next door The Atlantis next time i visit I will book there instead.

Just returned from a wonderful stay here. Beautiful beach with great umbrellas to shade you and Gin clear waters to swim with the Jack Fish. The hotel lobby is lavish and rooms have a great views. Powdery sand and sunny skies everyday. Staff very nice and attentive. Locals very nice! My son enjoyed the swim up bar everyday from 10... More

The only bad thing...& for me it was bad, was that I booked a garden view room...which ended up being a concrete view. No green, no garden...concrete! When I inquired at the front desk, they said they consider that a garden view...I asked for an upgrade, but turned down...none available for a couple of days. We did finally upgrade, for... More

We were in port on a cruise and not wanting to deal with the crowds at Atlantis, we decided to take a taxi to the Rui. We were planning on going to the Hilton but they sold out of day passes so Rui was our second option and more expensive. $75 per adult included towel, pool, beach, breakfast, lunch and... More

I was so afraid after reading the recent reviews but was pleasantly surprised. Check in was no problem and only took a few minutes. Wifi is not good so that was a little annoying, but not a deal breaker. The staff was very friendly and never had a problem asking for anything and not receiving it. The one thing I... More
