The Riu chain is one of our favourites, we have stayed in Riu Palaces from Jamaica to Puerto Vallarta and Cabo. This resort shoild not be classed as a Palace. The... More

The Riu at this location should not be called a Palace. We have been to many Riu's and we love them. The food is always awesome at the Riu's. The resort here is very small and only has 1 pool. If you like small resorts than you will like this one. The food is awesome. The steak house actually had... More

This was our first time to Paradise Island. We picked the Riu so that we were next to Atlantis. Rui was a much smaller resort witch we liked. Food was amazing at all the restaurants. Service was great and everyone was extremely friendly. Highly recommend the Riu and would stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at the Riu Palace for 7 nights this past January. It is an all-inclusive. I have been to other all-inclusives before and I can tell you that the food at the buffets at the Riu was very good - significantly better than other all-inclusives we have stayed at. Specialty restaurants were also good. We especially... More

.This is not 5 star or even 4 star hotel. The building needs to a major renovation and face lift. One day of rain and there was buckets all over. There is no top shelf drink, food is mediocre and getting a restaurant reservation is very hard. .Free Wifi!!!! It drops every 3 minutes. .The owners of this RIU should... More

Have stayed at a few Riu's before and this definitely wasn't one of the best. The room's are ok, nothing special. The service is not great all around from the front desk staff to the waiters/waitresses, bartenders, etc. There are some very nice and friendly staff but the majority of the time the service was poor. The beach is nice... More

All inclusive. Very good daily buffets and get to choose 2 (included) specialty restaurants every 4 days. Normal hotel rooms but with liquor dispenser in the room,(rum, tequila, vodka and ?). Two min walk to the hotel next door and then 6 minutes to the casino. MUCH less expensive than the Atlantis next door. Beach and pool are great. The... More

Buffets were varied in choices, service people were very helpful and polite. Sport bar was 24/7. Room was probably vintage 60's. Had a small balcony which was not suitable for my wife and I. Nice pool and beach. Nightly entertainment was provided by the staff. Was OK only.
