The resort was a solid 3 star not a 5 star BUT with that being said the staff and food were a 5+ and the location was prime too. The Ferry Nassau was a 15 minute walk and Atlantis was right next door. The staff was very friendly and hard working. Not once did we see anyone standing around, they...

The hotel is a bit outdated;, however, we were only in our rooms to sleep and shower and move on to the next adventure. The buffet was always good, and the speciality restaurants were very good, especially the Krystal. The staff made the whole vacation worthwhile. Rashad in the dining area and buffet area deserves an acknowledgement for his professionalism,...

Our 2-week stay from February 4-18th at the Riu Palace was wonderful. We were very impressed with the great service from the hotel staff who were very friendly and always approachable. The food at the buffet was fantastic with a wide selection that was sure to please everyone's palate. The a la carte restaurants' food was equally as tasty. Our...

I'm glad that the neighbouring Atlantis hotel was fully booked and that I chose the Riu instead. Better value, less flashy but very good. I felt no need to use the various specialist restaurants ( for which there were queues) because the buffet was extremely good, varied, and top quality. Many healthy food options. Lovely position with a beautiful safe...

Overall we had a very good time at this resort. The beach was awesome and very relaxing. The room had a musty smell at times and the carpet always seemed damp. The food was better then we expected. The staff was very helpful and very pleasant. Game room was basically non existent but that didn't bother us. Atlantis resort is...

Like many others I was hesitant to book at Rui hotel because of the bad reviews posted. However I canceled my reservations at another resort and decided to book this hotel. I'm satisfied with my decision. Yes the hotel have some imperfections but they can easily be looked over. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The rooms were clean...

We had a very good experience we did upgrade to one of the corner Ocean View Suites which is well worth it we were on the sunrise side which was spectacular and even had a full moon as a bonus at night very beautiful. We found the beach to...

We arrived about 4 hours before check-in but they checked our bags and let us use the facility. We beelined for the pool and cozied up to the pool bar. Before taking the trip, I looked up so many reviews and there were quite a few bad ones. A lot of people saying the staff was rude, the place was...

After seeing the outrageous prices for Atlantis we wanted to stay at an all inclusive nearby where we could still pay a visit to the renowned resort. We ended up staying at RIU Paradise Island not expecting much from the recent reviews on here and other search sites. Initially, yes the hotel is being renovated this summer so the rooms...

Read all the reviews from new to old. So glad I booked this vacation. People who work here are all friendly,attentive,professional, fun. They all took pride in making the guest feel welcomed and made sure everyone was happy and having a good time. The food was very good in all restaurants and the buffets. Not my first time at all...
