5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

stayed at the RIU for 4 nights in February , and it was an amazing stay. I personally don't recommend going to the Bahamas in February because I went two years in a row and was very disappointed by the weather. BUT regardless I loved staying at the RIU and would go back in a heart beat. The only complaints... More

Having stayed at several all-inclusives, I can safely say this property is not a resort. Good points - food was varied and for the most part good. The view was great as was close acces to Atlantis. Disappointments - housekeeping was dreadful. One day we got one clean towel - we had to unfold the towel swan for our second... More

Our stay at Riu was not happy. Staff is not helpful at all whether you tip them or not, they have an attitude! Not coming back to Bahamas. Food was better than in other hotels at Nassau. Hotel needs renovations because building is old. One plus here is that no lines to eat at any restaurant there but when making... More

Sorry to say but our stay at this Riu was only so-so. A bit older of a hotel but generally ok. Extremely disappointed with our room. We had 3 adults in a room that was suppose to have two queens or at least a pullout couch. We got there and it was one king with a two person couch. Thought... More

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in May, 2015. The AC had an on/off switch, but that was it. I guess you could say I was the human thermostat. I had to get up in the middle of the night turning it off and on as necessary. What a waste of energy. Asked at front desk where they... More

Travelled with my husband in May 2015. Right from the time we arrived, we could tell that many of the negative reviews were people finding reason to overreact. Arrived on a Saturday, check in was quick and easy, no wait and the hotel didn't require a deposit. We were given towel cards and our wristbands for our 5 day visit.... More

Ok so where do I start!! I love the Bahamas and the people,they were great! The food was good expect the japenese restaurant. The drinks are very small so bring your own cups! The pool is horrible there is only one and one bar outside. The beach is nice but it's not private and you get a lot of locals... More

I have enjoyed staying at other Riu Hotels in the past and enjoyed our stay at this resort very much. We were there from May 10 - 17 and had great weather. The staff were very friendly and kind to us, some may have been having a bad day but we can't expect everyone to be perfect. Really enjoyed the... More

Atlantis seems to be putting the squeeze on the Riu so if you are going there to make a visit to Atlantis as we were you are no longer able to do so. Speciality restaurants were not available and staff not helpful re same

Let me start off by saying, that I normally don't write reviews. I have stayed at Riu Negril before and had a great experience which is why I chose this hotel for my Bahamas vacation. I checked Trip Advisor constantly for updated reviews and I must say that reading some of these reviews had me very nervous about staying at... More
