Our Opinion

A small resort right beside Atlantis on Paradise Island. Popular with families, has good food. 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.


Each one of the 340 rooms in Riu Palace Paradise Island boasts a spectacular view of the ocean and enjoys a prime location next to Atlantis. The hotel showcases the great amenities offered in all Riu properties throughout the Caribbean.

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

A Class Act!

The service at this hotel was absolutely top notch! Happy, consistent, attentive, friendly people all day, every day. As most reviewers have said, the rooms are a bit dated but they served the purpose perfectly fine. The lobby is not spectacular in a modern sense but it has awesome character and every evening it fills up and is abuzz with people around the lobby and by the lobby bar, laughing and drinking and mingling! The beach is beautiful, great sand, and the pool is basic with a swim up bar. Too bad there is no hot tub for the evening. The food was well past our expectation - an awesome variety every day and top quality - and again, service consistently so good! The Atlantis is spectacular but actually kind of cold - honestly, I would actually choose the Riu for over Atlantis for its character, quality and service (and price!). Thanks for a great stay.

Great destination, awesome people!

The staff were friendly, cheerful, polite, and never rushed. Super-friendly people! The food and beverages were both excellent - great variety, good flavours, and complemented with excellent service. The hotel itself is a little tired but is scheduled for renovations this July, which should fix that. I hope they can retain the style. That aside, it is clean and well-managed. The central lobby is an awesome feature - a great spot to hang out - it gives the place a fun, charming, social vibe. The beach is simply spectacular and access is steps away. The pool area could use a hot tub or two for windy days. Overall - awesome place! We were well taken care of and feel incredibly spoiled!

The worst hotel I have ever stayed at

This hotel might be a 1 start with 4 start prices. The service is terrible, the facilities are run down and dirty. Most, not all staff members are rude and ignore you. We found bugs in the food and roaches in the room. The room smelled like mold. Drinks are the worst quality. The building itself looks terrible. Only one pool and in bad condition. My friend got a rash when we went to the Jacuzzi by the pool. The beach is acceptable but right next door is full of trash. The only time we saw the manager was when he was eating, terrible management! The night shows are a joke and everything ends at 11:00PM. The only plase open late is the sports bar which is boring. The food at a la carte restaurants is not bad but not good. We had to be in line for 45 minutes at the steak restaurant and right before being number one in line we were rejected with no explanation, even though we were dressed accordingly. We stayed 4 nights but never again. For the same price you should get a way better hotel. I travel a lot and have stayed in good and bad hotels and all inclusive resorts all over the world. This is by far the worst!

5 stars ????? 2 аre too much!

The hotel is more like 2 stars and not 5! Extremely old and smells bad hotel. I've been to many other chain hotels but this hotel is really terrible. On a small field, no landscaping, no palms after 4p.m. the hotel hides the sun and beach shade. We were 7 nights but still a 2 day stay we wanted to just leave because the price is not value for money. We wanted only to return our money for the remaining days of the reservation but they honored the request and we were like prisoners! (If they really care for clients and is "visited" hotel, it would have against us return money and leave). Room 516 was terrible. Refrigerator perhaps broken and terrible noise. Many times attempt to open the door of the terrace but it is broken becomes difficult. And the worst - crawling cockroaches and bedbugs around the refrigerator. I would say that this is the worst hotel I've visited and perhaps no longer visit RIU because they are not professionals and had to remain as prisoners. Lounge on the beach, broken, old and uncomfortable. I give only 2 stars for good food and good staff

Pleasantly surprised

We were getting nervous after reading all the bad reviews posted here however they were all for nought. We returned yesterday and had a great time. We are well travelled and would not rate this a five star hotel but we didn't pay five star rates either. I would have liked more choices in the specialty restaurants but the buffet always had plenty to choose from. The hotel was spotless (some areas need updating) and the staff was fabulous. We were on the seventh floor and no complaints about the room either. Next time we will bring our adult children with us. A great value for the money! The Bahamas has really cleaned up its act since our last visit!
