The Riu lobby is beautiful but has a terrible smell of sewer. The beach and pool area was ok but drinks were weak. The buffet and restaurants were at select times, buffet was awkward. The restaurants only took 25 people a night and you had to wait in line for about 2 hours to try to get in. If you stay here, expect to get take out food. The room was ok but the bed sheets were dirty our first night. We found sand and body hair in the sheets, so gross! Second night, we found that the cleaning staff took our blanket. The mini fridge was to be stocked, it was empty. You could get water and beverages at the cafe bar. That was uncomfortable, they would act like it was a huge burden to get you a bottle of water or a glass of ice. A lot of eye rolling. The door keys don’t work well. Only two elevators working. Shower door broke off. Phone doesn’t work in room. A lot of trashy people stay here.

First off, I have to stick up for this resort and it's people. Those negative reviews do not not come with any understanding that we were at the resort the first week after re-opeing from COVID. Some only worked 6 weeks in the last year. Were there some hiccups and learning curves, yes, but was it catastrophic? NO! We found everyone to be most helpful and even though we didnt get our way at every dinner, it was hardly a reason to throw a temper tantrum. Although not my first choice, the buffet was very good and we had very helpful and friendly staff around us, with smiles and ready to serve. Now the really great stuff! Not only were we there the first day after reopening, we had the first wedding! Crystal was our wedding coordinator and she took every bit of stress away with her professionalism and friendliness. She truly made us feel special. The photographer was incredible, the Minister was incredible, our wedding dinner was incredible and so was the staff. Additionally, we made so many new friends that joined us on our special day, we could not have asked for anything more. Thank you all and keep smiling!

I’ve stayed at other Riu resorts...this is by far the worst!!!! The restaurants were opened on a rotation... so you don’t know which is open without asking someone.... then you had to wait In a long line to get a table ...food was awful cold & tasteless. The drinks were just as bad....either watery or super sweet... they need bartenders that know how to mix drinks .... not just pour rum into slush!!! The room weren’t any better... need upgrade.... the beds were low & squeaky. There were only 2 elevators working... you had to wait a long time to get one.The beach was very nice & the staff was helpful. Honestly, I think I’ve given u on Riu !!!

I stayed at the RIU May 2021. The first day I checked in just so happened to the be the first day the reopened since Covid. The staff and the service was beyond amazing. I really felt like home being here. The food was really good, I usually have low expectations when it comes to food at all inclusive but they knocked it out the park. This was my second international solo trip and first trip to the Bahamas and I felt safe and made new friends. The beach and pools were great. This resort has a lot to offer and I'm planning my trip back! 10/10 recommend

I'll start with mentioning that our expectations weren't high to begin with. And Riu failed spectacularly at every level. Liquor is cheap. Food is not good. No room service. No mini bars. Staff is rude. Had multiple staffers roll their eyes or stare me down like I was inconveniencing them when asking for water/food. Most of this was in the name of "safety" and covid precautionsl... which is off because they force ypu to stand in a crowded line for an hour to eat... NO RESERVATIONS FOR RESTAURANTS. Room smelled like sewage, view of ugly garage was the "ocean view". We switched hotels in the middle of our stay.... yes it was that bad. Easily the worst resort I've been to in my entire life. Utter garbage.
