I just want to say this is the first time I've returned to same hotel.

So after given...

We went up to the second floor and were greeted by a terrible chemical smell which got much worse upon entering our room. It was so bad that even...

My husband and I recently spent a week at the RIU, Paradise Island and unfortunately after reading other reviews, we can only concur with the overall average rating of 3 star for this all-inclusive resort. We did get lucky with a nice room and wonderful ocean view. The staff/service were excellent. The food and private restaurants were great as well....

We went there as a couple expecting 5 star ammenities and entertainment. Unfortunately there were no water sports or any entertainment! Marlon was a train wreck as he kept telling everyone that he was a 2005 graduate of a dance school in New York...WHO CARES!!! We wanted to see live dancers, singers and actual acts. Riu should really invest in...

First, let me say that we frequent Riu's twice a year with kids and without. My wife is a travel agent and like myself, isn't picky at all.
