We elected not to eat in the specialty restaurants. The buffets had something new each day with plenty of variety. Christmas eve dinner was very nice with seafood and steak. Prime rib was excellent. Will return to the Riu Palace.

My sister and I stayed at the Riu from Dec 9th-Dec 11th, 2014. We are both in our mid twenties and were wanting a quick get away. The bartenders and servers were fabulous but the front desk was very unhelpful. The food was average, not a big variety but sufficient. The location is great because you are literally only a...

My friend and I who are both in our mid twenties wanted to get away somewhere where there was a combination of action and relaxation. This location and hotel was a good choice for that. Very close to Atlantis which offers a casino, nightclub, shopping and a nice place to walk around. I personally wouldn't stay at Atlantis when you... More

The Riu Paradise Island is a great place to spend a few days when visiting the Bahamas. What makes this place a good choice includes: super-friendly and hard-working staff, great access to beach and a nice pool, a few steps from Atlantis (if you want a bit of "mega resort" action) and it's not too crowded. Although it doesn't have... More

Firstly, I struggle with hotels that rate themselves as five stars and do things like forcing you to line up early morning for dinner reservations and limiting your access to a la carte restaurants. This hotel should not be branded as a Palace in the Riu portfolio. Observations on our stay is as follows. Check-in is slow and saw to... More

The hotel needs some updates. The rooms have carpet in them which I found odd for a beach location. The hotel it's self was a bit outdated. I think you get more bang for your buck in Mexico. There wasn't much outdoor space. The only outdoor bar area was the pool bar which closed around 6:00 or 7:00. The only... More

A large group of us were here for a long weekend getaway for relief from the drab weather back home. Thankfully, we had sunny skies and a nice warm breeze to keep us cool from the humid heat. The beach was beautiful - you can walk a long way along the soft sand, or lay around all day. Its not... More

We booked this trip for a 50th wedding anniversary and wanted to be close to Atlantis for the casino. You can't get any closer to Atlantis so that is a plus...you can walk from Riu to Atlantis to walk through the resort and go to the casino (takes about 10 minutes). However, the most annoying and disappointing part of our... More

As I was just married a few weeks ago, I had no more days I could take off this year. So when my buddy announced a destination wedding, I was like "oh, man." After the fact, it was very enjoyable. The best part about the hotel is its location: right on the beach. It is hard to argue with white... More

This is "all inclusive" Mostly buffet but an unbelievable selection of wonderfully prepared meals. There are three other restaurants for more formal dining but you need to book three days in advance. Your room is stocked with a limited bar that is replenished, if needed, daily. Staff was very accommodating. Music in the lounge was very good. Right next door... More
