Bahamas vacation

Our stay at the Riu was overall amazing. The room was very nice and the view was even better. The workers were amazing and very friendly. The food was great assist from one restaraunt. The steak house was the best and the buffet was pretty good. There was not a lot of nightlife and the weather could have been better. Overall we had a great time. Would definitely go back after they finish renovations.

Bad Vacation Experience

We travelled to Bahamas for the first time, booked thru Cheapcaribbean and stayed at Riu. The experience at Riu was very horrible and we felt like we didn't get value for the money we spent. First of all we didn't realize that the hotel was shutting down for revovations two days after we checked out. It would have been nice if someone was forthcoming about that information. That would have made a huge difference in picking the resort. The room we were given was disgusting. There were rust spots all over the bathroom, on the mirrors, on all the holders, the toilet paper holder was broken and hanging off the wall, room was musty, carpet was torn at various spots and was also damp at multiple places. There were no hand towels in the room, no hotel info was provided during check-in, we were not even given our coupons and gift vouchers until we asked for it later. Since the hotel was shutting down all restaurants were not open for all days of the trip and the poolside bar ran out of several specific drinks that were on their menu and they didn't do anything to replace those. We requested to change our room. After lot of back and forth conversations with the manager and spending almost half a day we were finally able to switch to a refurbished room. This was a very unpleasant experience in an awesome beach and ocean location. Overall we feel that we stayed at one of the worst hotels and overpaid a lot for the quality and service we received.

Very disappointed

This was our second time at this resort. It has gone down hill so much since we've been here. Staff was not very friendly, the roof was leaking in several locations including where you check in, workers were banging and drilling outside our room by 7:00am every morning waking us up. The food was good, but just average. Entertainment was non-existent unless you consider a small band with one girl dancing entertainment. The beaches were so pretty but not kept clean. Trash was everywhere. There was no one serving drinks on the beach like many (if not all) of the resorts we have been to. Overall we were so disappointed considering the money we spent. Looks like we are headed to another location next trip.

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.

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 (Adults-Only): 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.
