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.
We stayed 6 nights at the Riu and overall we had a great time. Getting to the hotel from the airport takes about 30 minutes and costs around 42-45$ by taxi. We got there at 10:30 am and checkin was not until 3, so we had some lunch and went to the beach. I would suggest having your bathing suit somewhere easily accessible. The beach is absolutely beautiful with plenty of chairs and umbrellas. Yes there are locals and beach vendors but they are not annoying! We had room 1111, the room was spacious and faced the pool, water, and Atlantis! The rooms could use renovations but overall not bad! Atlantis is right next door!! Definitely check it out there's so much to see and it's soooo nice. The dinner buffet was great, different themes every night, there's also a la cartes but require men to wear long pants! No beach service but there is pool service. Try the dirty banana it was yummy! We had professional pictures taken by s n l photography, she was great!!! Definitely recommend her!
Let me start by saying this review is for the people who like me are already booked for "Riu" and are worried as u look for the reviews each day and see the negatives ones roll in.Well arrival was a breeze, even though rooms are to be ready for 3pm, some of us were able to get in before that time. The staff really get an A+ for that. Especially with such a big group from Sunwing. With all the negative reviews I saw I was worried but this place is by no means a dump and far from it.The views are spectacular and the water is turquoise. The room was clean and served its purpose. I agree it's a little dated and the carpet needs to go. The pillows were too hard for my liking. But in there defence they are about to shut down to renovate.The food was good, we totally loved the Steak House restaurant and their ceaser salad is amazing. The staff is friendly and really go the extra mile to make u happy. Location is perfect it's right beside the beach tower of Atlantis so it was a easy walk over at nights. If anything I would say sucked was the Room Service menu..... no options and we were disappointed with the food. I hope after the renovations they have a place open at nights that guests can get hot food. All in all it was a great mommy getaway from our kids, to relax and set the reset button. I had a great time me and my sister friend was just happy to be on Paradise Island. So go have fun, enjoy the drinks, and remember don't sweat the small stuff. The views of the water will totally make up for any imperfections.
So I'm a travel agent in real life, first off yes the hotel needs renovations. The beach on this property is one of the best i've seen on many islands I have visited. The food is also very good on this property and a la carte restaurants do not require reservation, however you have to show up early for the dining since the line ups can be very long. Also the fact that it is adjacent to the Atlantis is amazing so if you want to go to the casino or take the kids to the aquarium, which by the way is free after 6pm is a huge bonus. We also took the cab into town and did some shopping where you can get good deals if you bargain. A few steps away is also the historical district where you can look at the government buildings etc...Getting back to the hotel I would like to advise the room does consist a musty smell due to the carpets in the rooms, which I hope they change once they renovate. If you request a room for a higher floor the view of the ocean is magnificent. The beach on this property is amazing on which you can take a long walk certain areas of the ocean are more wavy then others. Service is good in this hotel and I would recommend trying all the a la carte restaurants since they are unlimited for the evening. The evening entertainment is one of the best i've seen in an All Inclusive and I have been to quite a few islands. All in all honest opinion the hotel needs a huge face lift but the beach is amazing so location is the strong feature. Thanks
What a nightmare of a vacation. This place needs to be torn down and rebuilt. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money to stay somewhere else. The rooms have an ubearable smell of mold/mildew mixed with Pine-Sol. Wet carpets, rust everywhere, black mold in the bathrooms, bed bugs, balcony unsafe, etc. The ceiling above the front-desk almost caved in when we were checking in! The food was disgusting. The 24-hour room service was a joke and so were the buffets- not edible. I heard the restaurants were better, but they were impossible to get into. First come first serve (no reservations accepted), and they are only open between 6:30pm and 9pm. So unless you stand in line for an hour or more it is impossible to get in. On top of all of this the staff was extremely rude and made us feel very uncomfortable. I felt like they were after us the entire time. It got so bad that we ended up leaving and staying at the Atlantis next door and then changing our flights to go home 2 days early.
Check in was effortless, Staff were quite friendly and tourist savy!! , ive travelled across carribean and Nassau is the Friendliest island ive been to as of yet. GOOD POINTS .. Location, Great quality and variety of Food, buffet and a-la-carte. Rooms were tastefull and our preferences upon booking were adhered to, upper floor with adjacant kids room and ocean front views. Close proximity to casino at Atlantis. Beach and ocean were impeccable as to cleanliness and proximity to Hotel. BAD POINTS ... Lot of Hustling by the Locals from excursions to women, marijuana etc.. gave me a headache... all done on beachfront, Sea Doo rentals .. all day long bout 30-40 Sea doo machines.. constant noise and smell of gasoline was disturbing. Also Hotel was located next to Park where all Cruise ship crowd would gather 4 times weekly. My wife want to go back but Im a little more skeptical of the constant action on the Beach ... I prefer a quieter laid back tranquility setting on my Holidays. So If action is what your looking for this is the Spot for you!!
