Only thing to change would be the smell in the lobby. Also the dinning dinner reservations would be nice or at least offer more tables available to provide for more guest the opportunity for the restaurant dinning.

Like something out of a movie...

This was my first all-inclusive resort, therefor I don’t have anything to base my opinion off of. However, we stayed a total of 8 days and 7 nights. My opinion of the hotel started off a little sketch as the agency we used for transportation (provided by hotel) took us literally 1.5 hours from the airport to the hotel. They will literally travel to every single hotel for pick up and drop off, same with going back to the hotel. So if you want to get there and get back in a timely manner GET A TAXI. Check in was delightful, the welcome drink was amazing! We did pay the extra upgrade and got one of the ocean view rooms (one of the largest rooms) truly worth every single penny. The room had a bath and separate shower, I literally cant rave enough about it. To keep this review short, the food is very good. Breakfast was amazing as was the jerk chicken at lunch (all the buffets were great) Lunch was the only meal it seemed as the servers wasn’t super interested. The special restaurants were divine. You will literally need to get there an hour before opening to actually get a seat. The evening shows were wonderful, however I wish they had maybe something more like a dance or something. The activities during the day was a HUGE let down. There is lots to do outside the hotel, be sure to book a couple trips such as snorkeling or the culture tour. Be sure to bring lots of dollars (300) as everyone expects a tip...literally. The beach is literally the best thing they have going for them.

Only good thing is the beach

The beach is the best thing about this resort. It is crystal clear and warm, you could literally spend hours in it. The food at this resort is tasteless and poor quality. The only specialty restaurant we tried was the steakhouse and neither one of us liked or could finish our steaks. Just bad. Also reiterating what everyone else has said about waiting in line well before 6 pm to even think about having something to eat other than buffet, ridiculous. The service is spotty. A few mornings of our stay I had to pull down my own chairs and table to the beach because there was either a) no one to be found well after 8 am or b) someone was there but showed no interest of helping (unless you handed them some cash). Bartenders were friendly. Drinks were actually good. I enjoyed the Pinot Grigio, strawberry daiquiris and the draft beer. There was no welcome drink at check in, no explanation about dinner, there were a couple of activities around the pool/beach. No service at the beach and even at the pool they would hardly look at you to avoid seeing if you needed something. This resort is good for a quick last minute trip where you’re not expecting much. Proximity to Atlantis is good for gamblers and people just looking for something else to do. We even paid $$ to eat there one night just to avoid the food at this resort. Go for the beach and the drinks, don’t if good food and service mean something to you.

Loved it!

My husband and I very much enjoyed our visit here. The staff was all super nice and helpful. The food is great. Unlimited adult beverages can’t complain there. The rooms are clean and comfy. They accidentally gave us the wrong room our first day (it was still very nice!). The next day our room was upgraded substantially!!! We are already planning the next trip!

Overall The Bahamas has been our favorite vacation spot!

Disappointed

This is my first time at an all inclusive and I must say RIU has left a lot to be desired. The late night food choices are minimal and is basically stadium food. The pool closed at 6pm. It’s an adult only hotel with elementary school curfews. The lobby and bottom floor of the hotel has smelled like sewage since our arrival and I’m amazed management walks around as if they cannot smell the odor. It’s not subtle at all: I was going to wait until I got home to write a review but I’m currently sleepy but wide awake because when I went to the bathroom there was a roach waiting for me. I’m glad I’ll be leaving tomorrow. If I could check out and leave tonight I would. I can’t believe I spent the kind of money I did to be killing roaches. And I can’t see myself having a good nights sleep tonight. Extremely disappointed. I would not suggests this hotel to anybody. The unfortunate thing for the RIU brand is I hear from other guests that the RIU in other locations are a lot better than this one but based on my stay here I would probably not choose any RIU brand hotel.
