    I wouldn't go back to that hotel rude staff

    From the moment we got there the reception staff were unwelcoming and rude. The first thing the guys said was if you lose your wrist band you have to pay it wasn't the welcome I expecting from a Riu. We had flown all the way from the UK and was so excited to be in the Bahamas wow it was shocking there wasn't even a "welcome to the Bahamas" like you would expect. One couple we was with had to wait hours for their room bearing in mind you get kicked out for checkout at 11am they had to wait until 4pm there was no apologies from the reception staff. Luckily the bellboy pulled it back for us smiling and welcoming us to the Island telling us what activities we should do shocking the reception staff should take a leaf out of his book. We kept seeing him throughout our trip and he was a delight, I wish I could say the same about the reception staff the few times we had to go there we would ask a question and they would simply point at things zero interest like we was bothering them they didn't have a smile between them. On the day we checked out they didn't even ask if we had a good time or enjoyed our stay I have never experienced anything like that in my life just simply took the key from us outwith even a thank you. When we asked where we could shower because our flight wasn't until 7pm that night the woman said there was no facilities and simply walked away. However, that wasnt the case when one of our party complained they said said there was a shower in the spa . Considering the first people you meet are the reception they need some serious training on customer service. I have stayed in several Rui's over the years and they have been amazing but his is the last time this one was terrible. The bar staff were ok and the drinks were nice enough . The staff in the restaurants were actually really lovely and the food was really nice the steak house was delicious . The night time entertainment was terrible actually made my toes curl at time. There is an office within then hotel where you can book trips again proper rude staff we needed to know if we had to bring our passport on the day of the trip because it wasnt clear the woman didnt even have the decently to get off the phone and was just shouting the word passport and pointing at us us it was disgusting behaviour . On a brighter note it was so worth booking we booked a trip to Sandy Toes island it was amazing one of the best things I have ever done . We did snorkelling, the food was gorgeous swimming with pigs was brill and the staff on the boat and the Island were the nicest people ever I would highly recommend it. The Bahamas was on our bucket list and we had been so excited to go but we was so disappointed by the hotel and the staff maybe if you do fancy it try a different hotel .

    Paradise Found: A Glorious Day at RIU Palace Nassau!

    Venturing to RIU Palace Nassau Paradise Island was undoubtedly the pinnacle of my cruise stop. Despite initial reservations prompted by mixed reviews, I'm immensely grateful I didn't allow them to sway my decision. From the instant we stepped foot on the property, Indy's warm welcome at check-in set the stage for an extraordinary day. The pool area was nothing short of a dream, and the culinary offerings were out of this world – the Jerk Chicken was a flavor explosion! A massive shoutout to Larry and the rest of the staff, whose impeccable service ensured our glasses were always filled and our smiles never faded. Our foray onto the public beach for a jet ski adventure was an absolute blast! The property itself is a sight to behold, with breathtaking views and vibrant blue waters that left me in awe. And let's not forget about the resort's grand lobby and sumptuous buffet! The sheer opulence of the lobby area took my breath away, and the buffet spread was a feast for the eyes and the palate. From the stunning decor to the delectable cuisine, every detail exuded elegance and luxury. Plus, being an adults-only resort meant there were no distractions from the serene party vibes. I simply can't fathom some of the negative reviews because my experience was nothing short of extraordinary. If you're on the hunt for paradise, look no further – RIU Palace Nassau Paradise Island is the ultimate destination!

    Riu Paradise Island Bahamas

    Enjoyed stay at RIU Paradise Island. Staff and Service Excellent. Always with a smile. The main restaurant food was very good. Also tried one of the other signature restaurants which was Japanese and enjoyed very much which was a change from the main restaurant. Loved the pool side fare as well. I would definitely stay at the RIU again . Hotel close to downtown and other sites in Nassau..
