Riu Paradise Island Nassau Bahamas Review

The Riu Paradise Island in Nassau Bahamas is a Palace Class hotel of Riu. This is the highest class of service Riu offers. The hotel is located on Paradise Island and just a 5 minute walk away from the Atlantis Casino and resort.

The interior of the hotel lobby is grand with beautiful circular chairs, and a bar. The building is tall, rectangular and taken over from a previous hotel chain. The

The buffet restaurants and a la carte restaurants offer great food options. Many of the buffet nights have a theme. While there, I was able to try the Krystal asian Fusion restaurant, Tengoku restaurant and Sir Alexander Gourmet Restaurant. All of them were great.

The buffet restaurant is nice because there is a patio that surrounds the restaurant facing the ocean and swimming pool. The Riu staff are friendly and tried to encourage participation in activities such as bingo, karaoke, and pool aerobics.

If you’re interested in visiting Nassau, there are boats that take 20 minutes to cross from Paradise Island. From Riu Paradise Island to the boat port will take about 15 minutes.

  • Location: 5/5 Best location to be close to Atlantis Resort and Nassau Bahamas
  • Food: 4.5/5 The quality of food is high, and the a la carte restaurants are worth going to. ┬áThe only drawback is that there is usually a line up early morning to book reservations for the a la carte restaurants.
  • Resort: 4/5 The resort is clean, but in terms of ammenities it pales in comparison to other Riu Palaces and Atlantis. It has one pool, which I can picture being overrun during busy season.
  • Value 4.5/5 Would I book it again? Yes

Overall the Riu Paradise Island is a great resort for someone who wants an all-inclusive option and wants to be near Atlantis.
