Having just returned, I have to say that I now understand all the bad reviews. The Riu Palace is one of those places that you either love or hate and personally for us, we hated it and would never return. Just thought I would write a list of pros and cons to help people come to a decision as to...

I am writing to share with you my travel experience. I was not happy with the hotel Riu Palace Paradise. In the catalogue, it does not advertise as a family resort. I was also disappointed in the hotel service, amenities and room. Here are some of my complaints: the bathtub had rust stains the size of a penney, the dresser...

We stayed at the Riu from July 4 to July 11, 2012. We had the best time! Lynden the waiter in the Buffet restaurant is awesome! He is so friendly and goes out of his way to make your meal memorable. We asked the waiter on July 4th if we could get a piece of birthday cake for my son...

My college girlfriends and I went to celebrate our 40th reunion. After booking I checked out the reviews here on TripAdvisor. I was very nervous after reading all the negative reviews. When we arrived one of our rooms was not ready and it was 4:00. I thought, "Oh, no everyone was right about this place." It turned out that the...

Went with the family ages 10 to 59 and once again had a great time. We have been there several times and cannot understand why there are any negative reviews. The rooms are clean and the staff goes over and above ( a little tip goes a long way ). We were treated like family ! The ocean was calm...

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this RIU hotel. But having previously stayed at the RIU at Riviera Maya in Mexico where the service and facilities were impeccable, this RIU was a little disappointing. We were there for six nights, and our beds didn't get made up until the last two. In addition, we had to repeatedly ask for new...

We recently returned from the Bahamas June 25th after staying a week. We were very pleased with this beautiful resort. The service, the food, the beach and the entertainment was what my family was looking for. We did run into less than beautiful weather as some tropical depression gave us more rain, dark skies and rough surf. Other than not...

We just got back from the Riu Palace Bahamas. We were there for a wedding in my family. The rooms had carpet which stayed wet and smelled and when I mentioned this to the front desk was told that the Riu purchased the property from another hotel chain and did nothing to change it. The food was terrible and I...

We were extremely disappointed with this 3-star hotel at best. we have stayed at many, many all inclusives in Mexico, Dominian and Cable Beach of Bahamas and this was by far the worst experience and most disappointing place and most expensive place we have ever stayed. The food was excellent, the service was terrible, the staff was cold and impersonal...

A group of 8 of us were looking for sun, sand and relaxation. The pool was great, service was friendly, food and drinks were great. It's not fancy but you would have to pay double for fancy. It was clean, not over crowded and well maintained. Spent evenings at Atlantis for fun but spent days lounging ocean/ and pool side....
