Overview

Close to Atlantis Bahamas' amenities
Smallest suites do not have attached outdoor spaces
If you want to be near the activities and entertainment available at Atlantis Bahamas but want to steer clear of the resort's high prices, then consider staying at this adults-only Paradise Island property. Recent guests recommend purchasing day passes for the adjacent water park and spending your evenings at the resort casino. When you tire of the crowds at Atlantis, head back to Hotel Riu Palace Paradise Island. This RIU outpost occupies prime Paradise Island real estate and offers aquatic activities like windsurfing and kayaking, all-inclusive dining and the Renova Spa. After a busy day, retreat to your ocean view suite, which features free Wi-Fi access, a minibar and a flat-screen TV. Most accommodations also boast balconies or terraces. Though past visitors raved about the well-maintained lodgings and picturesque views, some said customer service was hit or miss.

While all-inclusive, the Riu is nowhere near as complete a resort as the 800-pound gorilla of Atlantis next-door.

On a public and expansive stretch of lovely beach, this all-inclusive property offers rooms with attractive royal purple decor. They feature soft seating and small balconies.

READ MORE 

The Riu Palace Paradise Island, located next door to mega-resort Atlantis, is one of the few all-inclusive resorts in the Bahamas. Those familiar with Spain-based Riu's palatial Caribbean resorts – like the one in Aruba – might be disappointed by this aging property, with crowded pool and beach areas (saturated with vendors) and rowdy groups that come for free booze.
