This is my second trip to the Riu Palace on Paradise Island and after reading the recent reviews I was concerned that it had changed dramatically since my last visit in 2015. It was just as good as I remembered!! If you expect this to be like the other massive Riu complexes elsewhere in the Caribbean then yes you will...

We stayed at the Riu Palace which was all inclusive; food, drinks, room service, everything. The food exceeded our expectations. We did the steakhouse one night and that was great, but the buffet dining is just as great with more options. They had one night dedicated to Asian food which included stir fry, rice, sushi, etc. At dinner there was...

Food was below a Golden Corral. 2 seatings for dinner. no reservations accepted. Stressful if you wanted to eat later than 6pm....

Our trip to the Bahamas was awesome! We stayed at RIU PALACE in Paradise Island and booked a room with an ocean view. Our room was of a good size and loved the mini bar. The food was great and there were many restaurants to choose from. Not to forget that this is an all-inclusive resort, so, it’s drink all...

We had a wonderful 4 day vacation at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The hotel itself was a little older but still clean and enjoyable. I am writing because I was very disappointed in the plastic litter that was found on the beach. They say the rake the beach twice a day but there's no way...

The hotel rooms are quite small and need a refreshment. The pool area is loud, packed with people and the ongoing animation program is annoying. The beach area is quite nice and the restaurants offer good food. The staff was sometimes very nice, but sometimes also unmotivated, in summary not a common standard.
