The food is one of the best all inclusive offer we ever had. There are 5 Restaurants all free of charge. Even the beverages are original brands and not the cheap no need stuff you get in other all inclusive Hotels. Mini Bar and Liquor supplier are filled up daily. The rooms are clean and nice. The balcony offers a...

We stayed at the Riu for a week and then at the Atlantis in August. Both are great and completely different. The Riu is not the biggest Riu I have been at but it was perfect. Our room was on the top floor ocean front. We had a beautiful few. The room was beautiful and large with a large balcony....

The food and staff are both fantastic. The beach is amazing and the cost of staying here is very affordable. We are going back again in March and we just returned home from here yesterday. The location is great being a two minute walk to Atlantis and a $10 cab ride to downtown.

My husband and I visited here back in 2014 for 4 days, and had an even better time during our recent 4 day visit in November. Given the recent storm, Bahamas has recovered so well that one would not know that just a month ago Matthew blew through. Hotel staff were friendly and always polite. Check in was smooth and...

Pros: - Complimentary wi-fi - Clean rooms - Mostly friendly staff - good spa rates Cons: - Lobby permanently smells like sewage - 3rd floor elevator landing smells like bleach - two seatings for dinner in restaurants instead of having people make reservations - Hotel needs a facelift, a bit dated in public areas

........on our last day of three and was thinking about what rating to give this hotel. To be honest I was going to give it 3 purely on the basis of the raucous pool music belting out at full volumn with no one listening and spoiling what's left of the afternoon sun, forcing me to sit inside with the balcony...
