The resort is pretty much like others have described. Food was great -- probably the best out of all the resorts we have been to. Rooms were clean but tired. Carpets were wet in room. AC only worked at full blast or it turned off. No fans in the rooms. Fans probably would have helped with the wet carpet. Bathroom...

The following things made this trip a success: 1: Distance to the beach from the elevator a can jokingly say a skip and practically...

Just returned from Nassau today. The staff at this Riu are the friendliest of any Riu I've ever been to. For an all inclusive the food was good. The hotel itself is dated and in need of much repair. It is not nearly up to Riu standards. The rooms are damp and dingy but very clean. That said, it is...

My friend and I from England stayed at this hotel on 3rd January 2017 for 9 nights to attend a wedding. We arrived late afternoon and was allocated our room on the 10th floor (1030 I think). We had paid for an ocean view so were expecting something nice, the room was basic, a bit dated and smelt damp. We...

This was our third time at Riu Palace Paradise Island and remains our go to place for a nice winter warm weather vacation. Stayed 1-22 to 1-28. Food at the buffet was very good and presented and maintained better than any buffet I have ever been at. Great location with beautiful view of beach and within walking distance to Atlantis....

I was invited with my fiancé and 22 other couples to Riu for a free all inclusive trip paid by the company my fiancé works for. Being younger than others in the company, I'm okay with average hotels especially when it's free! I will first off say, the hotel staff is absolutely wonderful. Every single person from bartenders to house...

Very dated hotel, that over promises and under delivers. Staff give you the impression that everything is too much trouble. I had to change rooms, due to my landline phone not working. We wanted to leave after checking in. Poor entertainment. The hotel is not well maintained and gives the impression it's trying to be something it's not/possibly one was....

This was our 8th time at Riu Paradise Island and we had another completely awesome mini-vacation! We traveled for 5 days with our 8-year old son last week.
