Decent stay. Room was nice and comfortable. Stayed in 1431 junior suite oceanview. I have been to many RIU's and this one was much smaller and little entertainment. The place definitely needs an updating and renovation. Definitely will be back after renovations. Steak house was delicious- only all-inclusive that I have been to that serves lobster. Huge hit with my...

Hotel is dated, BUT friendly staff and good value. Food at buffet is pretty good. We couldn't be bothered to wait in line for any of the restaurants. Beach is really nice. We didnt have any real issue with vendors. In fact we noticed several people taking advantage of the offerings.

I've traveled to many resorts, hotels, all inclusive....despite the bad reviews this resort was one of the best. Check In: 3/5~Friendly staff offering delicious cocktails 🍹, check in was a bit slow. Waited in line for about 25 mins, but at the counter very efficient! Bars: 2/5~Drinks were not watered down, not as many cocktail fancy choices as other resorts....

Just got back from a 10 day stay here. The staff and the food were amazing! My husband enjoyed his omelettes daily made by Vera! All the servers in all the restaurants were awesome. The beach was beautiful but too small for all the lounge chairs. They brought our chair and umbrella to the area you picked. Unfortunately it was...

We loved the hotel room,which was spacious, the food was delicious and lots of choices in the buffets, people very friendly, room spotless, staff very helpful. Took a taxi into Nassau for shopping. Never felt safer anywhere. Next to the Atlantis Hotel which was great. Pool...

We were hesitant due to negative reviews but have never been more pleased; the food was delicious & the employees made us feel like royalty. Our Jr Suite, Room 1129 was very comfy with a great view of ocean. We will definitely try the Rui again!

Entered the lobby of Riu paradise island with trepidation due to divergence of reviews on trip advisor. Relieved to report that the resort is just fine. It is good and very good in some categories. However It is not up to the Riu Palance in Cancun which we stayed at last year. Here are the pros and cons: huge pro...

After reading all the bad reviews I was getting nervous about going, but, it was great! Yes Hurricane Matthew hit Riu a little hard and there are some leaks in lobby, but they had buckets catching them and all was fine, just walk around it! Everyone was really nice and polite. I read some reviews saying the employees were rude,...
