Everything about the Rui was great! We went for our 25th anniversary and had a great trip!

The hotel was very nice but the staff was very rude. Anytime we would ask for something it was like they were doing us a favor to do their job. Felt very unappreciated by the staff. The way they do the restaurants is ridiculous. If you are not in line by 5:30 every night you are forced to eat at the buffet. For an all inclusive you should not be forced eat at a certain time or at least be able to make a reservation.

Nice Staff hotel has physical issues

Everything at the hotel looks great but there are issues. The pool is shaded most of the afternoon, too cool to sit out. The room where the shows are held has horrendous accoustics; impossible to enjoy show, had to sit outside. Lobby has bad smell at certain times.

Nice place. The staff is excellent and entertaining. My only con would be they only serve draft beer at the bars, if it wasnt a big deal!

There was a lack of help from the people of Majestic. As far as representing Apple you should do better. Got no information about the hotel. All they wanted to do was sell excursions that's it

The best quality was the beach

I would give the RIU Bahamas a 6 out of 10. The resort was on the small side and the service wasn't very forthcoming. Maybe the culture isn't as friendly as in other countries? An example is when I called for room service and they didn't answer, I called the front desk. They said keep trying, that they couldn't do anything...not I'll check, or anything like that. Again it's a small resort. 1 building. Anyway, the food was more limited. I've been to the RIU in Cabo and there were more choices...especially for room service (they didn't offer eggs). Standing in line for dinner instead of taking reservations was a hassle. The rooms were cleaned so-so. I noticed, they didn't clean the showers. The beach location was awesome though. We walked over to Atlantis and their beach was not a fine and the water was choppier. Our room was nice. The bed was firm but not too much, but the pillows were small and not very good. The entertainment was also lackluster. The gym was small and could use more weights. We did not use any of the spa services because they were way over-priced. Like double the US. Lastly, no bar beach service.

Where to start! I never wanted to return home! The hotel staff at the front desk , bars, and restaurants were very friendly! I will definitely be booking another vacation to the Bahamas and to Riu palace ! The Thursday pool party is very fun and the activities included were a great way to meet more people and have fun too ! The bartenders were great and always quick! We were very pleased with the hotel and staff all together. It was a beautiful hotel and I love the options given for places to eat!

Very clean, friendly wait staff, poor dinner policy
THOMAS T.
Nov 09 2018
We were impressed with the cleanliness; the housekeeping staff was excellent, most of the staff was friendly, excluding the front desk staff who were indifferent. The dinner reservation policy was deplorable. If you wanted to have a spot for dinner, you are required to line up an hour before opening for a chance to get one of maybe two seatings. There was no way to take your time, enjoy the vacation and eat when you wanted, and were forced to only go to the buffet, which was only fair in foos quality. Only four restaurants and one was closed one night. ???? Ridiculous. This is the only hotel in all my years of travelling that did not offer a customer desk to check in for flights and print boarding passes. Maybe the only hotel in the world. I was told that my only choice was to use my personal device, forward the e-mail, and then they might print boarding passes for me. My personal device is a company device which I amnot able to use out of country, so I was forced to be at the airport early for check in and boarding passes. Highly inconvenient. We will not return.

The hotel staff was very rude didnt care if you were there or not the pool was very disappointing small no entertainment everything shut down at 7 oclock it was just a very disappointing vacation to me it was like a holiday inn would not recommend Hotel ..I feel that everything was based around Atlanta if you wanted to do anything you had to go there... The food was the same thing for seven days nothing different sometimes when you went down for breakfast there wasnt any thing left no matter what time you went there it was overall just disappointing .... all the staff mentor They act like you were a bother to just get ice from them everyone was in a rush customer service just was not there ... ive stayed at the RIU every vacation this by far was the worst the best one that Ive ever stayed at was in Costa Rica ....

RIU Palace Paradise Island was very clean. The staff was beyond friendly and extremely willing to accommodate our needs. The food was delicious, and the drinks were great. The pools were really nice, and the beach was beyond beautiful. The location was very convenient because it was right next to Atlantis, giving us easy access to the Casino and Marina village. Additionally, RIU is a short cab ride from downtown and the straw market. Cabs are located right in front of the hotel, always there for your convenience. Next time we visit the Bahamas, we will definitely stay at RIU.

Great all-inclusive & adults-only hotel

All inclusive is the best choice! They have regular buffet (menu changes) and special restaurants. 2 pools, 1 for relax and 1 for party. There’s a bar and tables inside the party pool. Hotel is very clean. We constantly see staff cleaning cuz all the sands from the beach. Room is great. I absolutely recommend this hotel!

Best vacation I’ve ever taken!

i had never had such a relaxing vacation, and felt so welcomed by everyone at a hotel before staying at the Riu Palace Paradise Island. Starting from the second I walked into the Riu, Felicity greeted us with a warm smile and some helpful information about the resort and the island. When the room was ready (we arrived early), Marvin was the consummate gentleman and not only brought all our bags to the room, but also offered some suggestions for our stay. From the food to the accommodations, I don’t have a single negative comment! While there, we ate at both Krystal and Chutney specialty restaurants (it’s advised to line up at around 6:00 if you want to partake in a more intimate dining experience), along with the lunch and dinner buffets and the lunchtime jerk chicken stand by the pool. There’s definitely something there for even the pickiest of eaters, and I found the food to be really fresh - the fish was amazing! If you’re dining at the dinner buffet, be sure to strike up a conversation with Lutan, the restaurant manager; he’s so friendly and insightful. At the pool/beach, guests can choose to either relax in the sun with a cocktail or participate in games and activities throughout the day. Smiley was a ball of energy and an absolute sweetheart in engaging guests in outdoor activities. I was also able to book a snorkeling trip through Majestic Tours in the lobby - Cecile was great at helping us choose the right excursion at the right price. Overall, it was a 10/10 trip and I would not only return to the Riu, but also stay longer!!

Beautiful, Clean Resort

I just got back from the Riu Palace and had a wonderful vacation. Hotel was beautiful, very clean, people always cleaning everywhere. The rooms were very nice and spacious. The beach was amazing. Water was crystal clear you could see the fish swimming around you. Lots of activities offered for extra fees: jet skiing, banana boat, Parasailing. For a few bucks, one of the staff set-up my chair and umbrella right near the water every day, same location and nice to know it was always waiting for me know matter what time. The pool area was so much fun with games and entertainment along with lots of drinking while making friends No complaints as far as food. I ate at the buff most of the time as the reservation system needs some kind of improvement. Did eat at the Steak House and it was fantastic. All in all, the food was excellent. After dinner entertainment every evening in the bar lounge. My only suggestion, more variety of music. It was too much too handle. Note, If people aren’t dancing, change the music. Plus side was being right next door to the Atlantis where you could walk over and hit the casino. Overall, had a wonderful time, highly recommend and I will definitely be back.

Fabulous Again!

We vacationed here about 11 years ago and loved it. Thinking of an easy spot for an early vacation in the New Year … and thought we'd go back! It's completely renovated. Pools are all new. Rooms are all fresh. Food is fabulous … we pretty much stuck to the buffet … so many great choices!! Relaxing … we took an Ocean View Junior Suite and spent a lot of time on the balcony! Took in the entertainment on a couple of nights … OK. We'll go back for sure. And we spoke so highly that our youngest son and his wife followed us there … and turned out our oldest son and his wife had already booked it with friends - the friends were there last year and wanted to go back. All inclusive. Really! Oldest son was surprised the even in-room drink and food is all-included. He and his wife had been to an all-inclusive in Mexico recently and had to pay for anything in the room.

Excellent resort

We found it very clean, the service was fantastic , people were very nice. W love the fact it was a couples only resort: the food was excellent. We would definitely come back again. The only thing I didn’t like was the pillows. I found hem to lumpy for sleeping.
