Our Opinion

A small resort right beside Atlantis on Paradise Island. Good food and great views from every room. Marina Village is close by; you can shop for fashion and souvenirs but make sure you do it after 5 pm, after the cruise ship traffic is over.


Riu Palace Paradise Island is a picturesque beachfront resort minutes away from the attractions of Nassau. Guests can look forward to an elevated vacation experience with a number of renovations to this adults-only resort including: revamped common areas, a polished main buffet, modernized a la carte restaurants, on top of a new pool with swim-up bar, and a new 24-hour lounge.

Enjoy a peaceful afternoon on the soft, white sands of the Bahamas or stretch out on a poolside sun lounger under the shade of a parasol. When you’re ready for entertainment, the Atlantis – the largest casino in the Caribbean – is located just steps away. Or enjoy fun, free activities on-site like beach volleyball, shows and live music. Satisfy your appetite with a wide variety of cuisines at five restaurants that prepare Fusion, Japanese and gourmet classics or unwind with a tropical beverage at one of three resort bars. Add-on a pampering spa treatment like a luxurious body wrap or Swedish massage to feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

 Location: On 3 miles of beach, a short drive to downtown & 30 minutes from the airport. Adjacent to Atlantis Paradise Island.

Great hotel with great views

We stayed here in early January. Got married on the beach. Riu staff were excellent and always polite. I always tipped a couple bucks each meal, for housekeeping, etc. They go out of their way to make sure you are looked after. Chefs would come out and customize meals for my wife because she eats gluten free. You have to line up for 6 for the restaurants. If you don't like to line up then go to buffet. Lots of options and really good food in comparison to mexico. Swam with fish 5' into the water outside the hotel. Atlantis is right next door and is huge with waterpark, casino, aquariums. Go after supper to view aquariums for free. Walk 15min to French cloister for some amazing views. 15th floor only has one elevator that goes to it. Entertainment at night was decent. Our weather was cloudy/windy which was unusual but for us it was still a 70 Celsius difference from home so it was nice. It's what you make of it really. We went for a 3 hour walk down the beach on a windy cloudy day and had a blast.

Riu Palace Anniversary Trip

Let me tell you one thing about this place, the Location is A+ and the service/staff is A+. What I will say is the resort is very, very small. I probably wouldn't have noticed as much if the weather was nicer for our trip, but there was simply nowhere to go inside the resort. Also, the pool is an Olympic sized pool and I was just used to humungous pools, so I think the pictures on the site and expectations were set poorly. I would never say not to stay here, but if you're looking for space and a larger resort, this is absolutely not the place.And I don't understand why they can't do reservations for dinner. There is no reason to stand in line for 30 minutes to get in. That situation just flabbergasts me. You should definitely stay here if you haven't been to an all-inclusive before. But, if you have stayed at other ones in other spots of the Caribbean, you will undoubtedly be disappointed.

Holiday 2018

This hotel has been updated, and is beautiful, the buffet was amazing, and customer service is excellent, we too were there when the weather was not great, cool and high winds, but it still was a great vacation. Didn't like their reservation policy for the restaurants, standing in line, and finding out you can't get in till 7:30 is not an ideal idea for people on vacation. A lot of people complaining about it as well. Check in was slow, but in all fairness, there were a lot of people checking in. Sun wing is the airline, that brought us to Paradise Island, and they loaded all passengers on the bus, then loaded our suitcases on another truck, so your luggage was not there with you till later, didn't like my luggage in someone else's hands, and when they opened the back of the truck, there was someone riding in with the luggage. Just didn't sit well with us. Overall, the hotel was amazing, and would go back again.

A very clean hotel, friendly staff, variety of food and drinks matching everyone's expectations. I spent there 17 nights and would definitely recommend. Also in my opinion it was reasonably priced for all inclusive stay.PS. I actually went there in April 2016

Have been a regular at the Riu for several years. We decided to revisit after renovations were completed. The Riu did a great job! The new pools are terrific. The infinity pool captures the beauty of the view! It’s breathtaking! The rooms have been updated as well ! This place will not disappoint !
