If this is your first all inclusive, you will love it! The staff is very welcoming and pleasant. The beach is beautiful! The food is great and the rooms are also nice. It is located about 30 -45 minutes from the airport. Tip 1:Taxi for 2 is about $35. When you arrive you will receive room cards and towel cards. If your room isn't ready, the hotel will hold your luggage in a secured storage room. We actually changed our clothes and had a bite to eat before our room was ready. Tip 2: When using the key card "hold" the hands on the card with your hand and insert the opposite end.
There is a buffet option for each meal. We enjoyed the made-to-order omelets for breakfast! Lunch serves various items such as pizza, pasta, hamburgers salads, etc. Dinner offered many choices in the buffet. We also went to the restaurants for a change of pace. There are several restaurants serving dinner ( Steakhouse,Asian,Fusion,Gourmet). Tip 3: Reservations are taken at 8 am in the lounge. They fill fast so arrive promptly.
Smoking is permitted on property. Rooms are smoke free. Matches are not provided, so you may need to purchase a lighter in the gift shop.
We came here to relax, and we did just that! However there are tours and activities offered daily. Also the Atlantis resort is about a 1-2 minute walk. Although, if you are going to walk to the Atlantis casino,plan on walking for about 5-7 minutes. There are vendors on the beach and a small shop at the end of the driveway for those interested in souvenirs.
How long to stay? 4 nights seem to hit the sweet spot for us. Overall we would happily return and although we just came back yesterday, we are already planning our next trip to the Riu on Paradise Island!
