Our beautiful wedding
krystal f,
Sat Sep 09 17:23:56 EDT 2017
We got married at the Riu Palace Bahamas special thanks to Crystal our wedding planner and bestman Jason for making our day perfect. This hotel has excellent staff my husband and I were treated like royalty. Our wedding party stayed on the same floor as us and they catered to our every need. Having a destination was made easy, they took care of every detail. Thank you for making our wedding spectacular.

Great and relaxing time!

We stayed in the Riu from July 10-14. Staff- Everyone was VERY kind, helpful, and willing to make our vacation amazing! Room- We stayed on the 14th floor in a Junior Suite, which had a partial ocean view. The side we stayed on had a beautiful view overlooking the ocean. I do know there are some rooms that overlook the pool. The room was a little outdated, but it didn’t bother us because we didn’t stay in the room much other than to shower, get ready, and sleep. Those who are complaining about the floors being wet, I’m wondering if they left the balcony door open, because our first day there we left the door open and came back to a damp floor. After we shut the door and let the floor air dry, it was completely fine. *Make sure to use the bottled water to brush your teeth/drink with in the room, the water is NOT drinkable from the faucet. Lobby- when we walked in, there were towels and caution signs around where there was water leaking from the ceiling, but people were constantly mopping the floor to make sure it was safe. We were told that a few weeks after we stayed there that they planned on doing a complete renovation for three months on the resort. When it reopens, it will be an Adults Only resort. Food- I can’t think of a bad meal that we ate here. The breakfast buffet was amazing! So many options, and they also had mimosas every morning. We ate the lunch buffet every day as well, again I can’t think of a meal we didn’t enjoy there as well. For dinner, we ate at the Steakhouse restaurant our first night there; we had steak and seafood. Again, amazing! Our second night, we wanted to try the sushi restaurant, but then were informed in that it’s sushi night at the dinner buffet, so the sushi restaurant was closed. We definitely did some damage on the sushi in the dinner buffet. We loved everything that was prepared, it was wonderful. Our third night, we ate at Krystal, which is an infusion restaurant. As soon as you walk in, they give you champagne. We had an amazing appetizer, lobster risotto, and pineapple three ways (sorbet, mousse, and raw). The second meal was lamb curry on quinoa with chocolate cake for dessert. For our last night, we ate at the dinner buffet again because it was Greek night, and we love gyros! Again, everything was delicious! Pool/Swim up bar- Everyone was very nice and helpful with everything. From setting up our umbrella, giving us drinks, and making sure we didn’t need anything else, it was all awesome. There was a great variety of drink options and the bartenders were very accommodating and wanted to please. *My suggestion would be to bring a tumbler so your drink doesn’t get warm quickly, and it also saves you a few trips going back up for more drinks. They are more than willing to fill it up for you. No complaints here! Beach/ocean- The water was BEAUTIFUL! It’s so clear and warm. Those who say that there’s trash such as plastic cups, straws, etc. on the beach, yes, you will find those things on the beach, but from what we’ve seen, most of it is because the tourists refuse to pick up after themselves, or the wind blew it away. In our opinion, it’s nothing absolutely unreasonable. The staff who brings out the chairs and umbrellas are very nice and helpful. Room service- we did use room service once, and it came to our room fairly quickly. It was basic snack food like sandwiches, chips, and nachos, nothing too fancy, but it didn’t taste horrible. Overall I would absolutely recommend the RIU to anyone, especially if they’re looking for an all inclusive resort. Everything is clean, the staff is extremely friendly, and the food and drinks taste awesome!

This place is so bad, its dirty, the staff is so nasty.Nothing to do. The locals on the beach hound you to pay them for services. its all inclusive but you can never get your bar restocked and at the bars you get ignored.the whole place is falling down and it has leaks all over the building.The air conditioner don't work. I would never recommend going there.

Great vaca for us!

Although our trip was last year (May 2016), I wanted to share our thoughts. So, some things may have changed since that time... Shay greeted us at the check-in desk (so cute and so friendly!!). We were able to get into our room right away; we arrived early afternoon. The room was a little "tired" and could have used a freshening/minor renovations. However, there is heat and humidity in the Bahamas, so that should be expected, even with air conditioning. We weren't there to sleep all day - we had a partial view of the ocean, no need to sleep in!! Great walks/runs on the beach, followed by a wonderful breakfast. Fresh fruit smoothies and made-to-order omelets were a couple of my favorites. Hubby enjoyed the donuts too. :)The beach was always very clean. We spent our first day on the beach, the rest overlooking the beach on the pool deck (closer to the bar) and taking dips in the ocean/pool to cool off. Our stay was long enough to get reservations to all the restaurants. No complaints there, either. SO delicious! I celebrated my 40th birthday at this resort, and I felt so special! Simple little gestures: champagne, cake, and fresh fruit in the room, as well as an angelic voice singing me "Happy Birthday" during dinner. Nearly brought tears to my eyes. These were carried out by the wonderful staff; my husband did not arrange these things. We did have an issue with our A/C, which was tended to right away. Ended up being a simple fix for the tech, but not something we could have done ourselves. If you're looking for time away, this could be your place!

worst spontaneous quick trip

Booked this trip one week prior to travel date as quick end of summer thrill for my family. Unfortunately, the trip got worst with each day. Roaches, mold, leaking fridge, black outs in my room only - not the resort, bubbles in the ceiling, mold, sparking outlets, malfunctioning toilet, and the worst part... fire in the light switch! Now that took the cake after complaining and no one coming till after hours. When help came, tech doubted that something was wrong with the lights until the 6th outage. The stars on this hotel need to be rated ZERO!! Help was the hardest thing to get. I couldn't be more disgusted!
