Fights on the beach, and much more! We stayed at the RIU from 9/7-9/14; I have some positives and I have some negatives; Positives: Great staff inside the hotel, Chevy; bartender is a great person, with an understanding of customer service. The front desk staff was good, and the one assistant general manger we met was very professional. The property...

Don't listen to the grumpy, boring people who obviously like to sit in their hotel rooms and not enjoy the tropical isle. We had a corner jr suite that looked out over the ocean and the pool. We watched them clean the pool every day - and, yes, by the end of the day there was gunk floating on the...

September 10th 2012. We had a great time at Riu with great food and a great view it was well worth the money that we spent. Cecile was our host and she was very helpful in our excursions. The view we had was beautiful, hearing the ocean whisper at night was fantastic. The staff at this hotel were so much...

We enjoyed our time at the Riu Palace. There were 6 people ages ranging from 1-55. Loved the rooms, very comfortable and spacious. The pool isn't huge but that's ok. There are people selling things on the beach but we just told them no and they left us alone. It's a BEAUTIFUL beach! We walked the whole thing! We did...

We stayed at Riu for a week at the end of August and had a great time. We already want to go back. This is a wonderful hotel where you can eat, drink, relax and have fun. If you can accept, going in, that the pool is kind of small and there may be a musty smell in the hallway,...

I was soooo afraid after reading the reviews. This place was wonderful. Checked in around 5pm and my room wasn't ready. However, Toni was a gem. She took our luggage and sent us to eat. As soon as we were done, the room was ready. The room was clean. My only issue was we were on the even side next...

The RIU Bahamas really should be considered a 3-4 star resort. I am still trying to figure out how it qualified as a 5 star. I visited this hotel in 2007 (pre-renovation) and had high hopes that my September 2012 trip would be a much better experience. Here is the review: The rooms: -they look better, but the entire remodel...

I value the service that Tripadvisor provides to travellers and often read reviews before booking hotels to see how my fellow travellers enjoyed their time there. There is no doubt that there are many negative reviews on the Riu Paradise Island resort, but my experience there in Aug/Sept couldn't have been further from theirs. We booked the cheapest room through...

My overall experience with the Riu Palace was excellent, although there were just a couple of small areas in need of improvement. Pros: The hotel is clean, all-inclusive meant great (almost over-indulging) meals with new themes during the dinner buffets and lots of "staple" meals for younger travellers, i.e., hotdogs, spaghetti, cereal available daily. Access to alcohol was astonishing. Beer...

Let me begin by saying that I am not a crazy stuck up person, just an average working class person. I have been many places and was so disappointed by the Riu, the pool was so FILTHY you couldn't pay me to go in, the food was nothing to write home about and the rooms were clean, however, they were...
