The second night in our room the bathroom ceiling was leaking and we had to re-locate to another room. Not good! The wife a little upset with that!

Love Riu

Love Riu! It's a large hotel with one pool. What you see in the picture that is how it is. Very clean pool & area. Beach appears small but you have the entire strip from the Atlantis to Cabbage Beach. Cabbage Beach is steps away, BEAUTIFUL! Hotel staff very cordial. The Room was cold which means AC is in perfect conditions. Beds were comfortable. Balcony is small but the view is Amazing. We were on the 7th floor on the left side, Wonderful view. We got a double beds, but we were in the BAHAMAS, i didn't bother asking to be moved. Room was always clean with new towels every morning. Mini bar, WOW! Brand name liquor right in your room. 24 hour room service. There are only two buffets. 1 is for breakfast and dinner and the other for the afternoon. Wide variety of delicious food. Never the same food. There are 4 a la carte restaurants, Very nice, Only a small line right when they open. COFFEE is EXCELLENT. Sports bar open 24hrs. Nightly entertainment, Very nice & tasteful. If your under 30 you might not appreciate it. We saw family activities during the day and of course Bar @ the pool. Transportation is available at all times, very safe. WE visited the town 3x. Lots of nightly entertainment, shopping & food by the port. Only complaint. MAJESTIC tours. They left us for our ride back to the airport. We were maybe 2 mins late. But again, taxis available. Another shopping area and the Atlantis, very nearby, walking distance. Very pleased with my 6 days 5 night stay. Coming back very soon.

Locals make the place bad

We came here to relax and enjoy ourselves the hotel allows them to walk on the beach and harass guess all day. Also the hotel had a musty smell, carpet was moist. Staff was nice. This place is not for singles, they cater to the older crowd and couples.

Pretty good

The place is gorgeous, the beach is fantastic, the service is excellent. The alcohol selection was pretty limited. The food was bland, even in the nice dining rooms. My only real issue. Who closes the pool, pool bar, and hot tub at 6pm? I can get maybe wanting to keep it quiet if people wanna sleep but 10pm would make sense then, not 6pm. I'd like to continue doing things after dinner.

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

Primo beachfront locale - three miles of satiny sand hugged by luscious, aquamarine water.

The Renova Spa - the massages squeeze the stress right out of your bod.

The rockin' theme nights twice a week - get ready to kick it. Put on your party pants.

Buckets of fun activities for everyone - kids, the rents, even Aunt Pat.

Krystal Fusion Restaurant - it's a journey into the unexplored terrain of epic new sensations.

The unfailing, beachtastic service & attention. You'll feel like the beach royalty that you are.

 

What We'd Change

You may not find as many on-site activities like the other mega resorts, but the prime beachfront property makes up for it.
 

Why You Should Go

There's a hoppin', Vegas-style casino next door - grab sweet Lady Luck and try your hand.

The water sports (jet skis, water skiing & more) will blow you out of the water. Hang on!

You can dive into aahh-mazing excursions like swimming with the dolphins.

Atlantis next door has a great nightclub when you want to get your dance on.

The inventive entertainment staff is off-the-charts creative. They won't disappoint.

You're close to downtown Nassau - see the old quarter, museums, zoo and botanical gardens.

Hotel Description

Riu Palace Paradise Island: All-Inclusive Bahamas Bonanza

Bahama Mama Mia does this Riu have it all. And then some. Let's start with the dreamy, three-mile stretch of silky sand, where you can chillax, get your drink on (and on - no one's counting) and ignore the world, or hit a game of beach volleyball and burn some calories. And that's just the tip of the beachberg. Toggle between the Jacuzzi at the epic pool and indulge in stress-ousting treatments at the lush spa aka Relaxation Central, or hit the slots next door and hang at the always-festive, hip bars until the sea cows come home. Is that a "yes" we hear? When might we expect you?

It's Time to Get Your Riu On.
