1st time to Aruba. Absolutely fantastic. I am having one of my best hotel holidays of all time. I never thought another island would beat Jamaica but Aruba has won hands down. Riu Palace is amazing. Although an older hotel the management and staff make up for everything with their friendliness and professionalism. Nothing was a problem, if there was... More

My husband and I enjoyed 7 wonderful nights at this hotel celebrating our anniversary as we returned to Aruba-our honeymoon destination. The staff was very friendly and helpful in making this an extra special vacation for us. We especially enjoyed meeting and talking to the bartenders in the lobby bar. The beach is ABSOLUTELY beautiful! We did have problems finding... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Riu Palace for 6 nights in August and we had a wonderful time! The Riu is located right on Palm Beach and has one of the nicest beach areas compared to other high-rise hotels. Another plus for the RIU is that their pool is HUDGE and the swim-up bar is fun. Now let's... More

My family and I spent the week of August 17 here. This was our third trip to the Riu Palace and even though there were some issues I would easily go again. The hotel is on a beautiful beach in a great location. It is an easy walk to the shopping/restaurants across the street - in fact we walked here... More

The wedding went well except for a few... More

We stayed at the Riu for our honeymoon. We'd been very apprehensive before we arrived after hearing about the building work and reading some very bad reviews. On the whole, we were relieved once we got there and can sum up the holiday by splitting it into the good, the bad (and the downright awful) points... Good - The gourmet... More

The Riu Palace is a good choice if you are looking to stay on the beautiful Palm Beach, have a great pool, good rooms, good restaurant choices, and unlimited food and drinks. The staff was very nice and friendly. Building C is all junior suites. Nice big rooms but on the side of the construction they are doing on the... More

On a positive note, the hotel had a spectacular selection of food in its buffet restaurant. However, the hotel itself is run down, the rooms appear old and outdated. One lady complained of her hair dryer catching on fire. If you get a room in the oldest tower, you don't even get a real balcony (just Juliette). The humidity was... More

This is the 2nd time that I've stayed at this resort. Overall, very happy with our stay and we would stay here again, however this resort is starting to... More
