Recommended Posts

I hate that no one responded. sad.gif I would to know myself if anyone has had any experiences with this resort location. As you can see, I'm still undecided on my location. It's tough trying to decide. Good luck to you!

Is this a new hotel or one that was something else before? I'm not familiar with it....guess I need to go google it....

Hey guys,

 

I actually walked over to the Riu hotel a couple weeks ago when I was staying in the Atlantis. It's right beside the Atlantis.

 

My honest opinion is the Riu was kind of a step down from the Atlantis... But I loved the beach area just behind it...since it was away from and more quiet than the beach behind the Atlantis...

 

I would imagine the cost is very close to or the same as the Atlantis...and you would just have access to sooo much more staying at the Atlantis...free shows/movies and a huge water park area. But it is true as you've probably read...paying for almost anything else at the Atlantis is VERY expensive. But I don't think prices would be much different from the Riu.

 

You and your guests would prob be happier at the Atlantis...or try finding somewhere else altogether if you're going for more of a quiet, less touristy feel for your wedding. There are two islands I kept hearing about over and over that were recommended by locals and some girls I met who were European and pretty well traveled. They're called Eleuthera (sounds like aluuthra) and Abaco. So you might check'em out. Cheers.

This used to be a Holiday Inn....it doesn't get very good reviews on Tripadvisor but I would check it out for yourself....

Hi, my fiance and I are booking with the Riu Palace on paradise Island this weekend. I researched Breezes, Riu, and Atlantis.

Breezes is more of a party place, Atlantis is soooo exspensive, it is not all inclusive and the daily night prices are crazy. so we decided on the Riu. it is going through a complete reno that will be done at the end of this month, and a neighbour of mine stayed there before it closed for renos. she said it was wonderful. that staff is great, the food is great, everything was excellent. if you want more, Atlantis is a 3min walk down the beach and you can use the casino and walk through the aquariums for free. it just costs extra to go in the water park and see the shows.

i didnt want my guests to worry about their meals and tipping so that is why we are going with the Rui. I hope that helps :)
