Bed, breakfast, lunch, dinner, beach — even minibar snacks and happy hour drinks — for roughly $150 per person per day? Come again? That’s the good-value deal posted by the Bahamas’ newly renovated Riu Paradise Island resort. Fear not
the get-what-you-paid-for adage: The rooms are spacious and the pool sparkling. Plus, it shares the strand with the lavish Atlantis resort and its teeming aquariums. The only challenge to your wallet: the Atlantis Casino, some 350 steps away.
