Got to spend my 50th birthday here with my favorite guy. Check in was a bit crowded with a busload of us arriving from the airport, but went smoothly. The room was very nice, clean and had the oceanview we requested. It was actually cool to have the 2 levels. The bathroom was very spacious. There are several eating options... More

We stayed at Riu palace and had everything all included. Great pool, free drinks, wonderful bar tenders and right on the beach! Also walking distance to shopping, nightclubs and other casinos. Couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon. Check out the night shows and comic nights.

The Riu Palace is in a great location, walk to many shops and restaurants. Bus to visit other areas of the island near by. Great Beach, love the... More

The food at the buffet was amazing! We were extremely impressed with the breakfast and dinner buffet. We usually had a light meal from the outdoor café at lunch. We tried the Japanese and Steak restaurant and they were okay, too. Good to go to one of the specialty restaurants if you want a more intimate setting. Keep the a/c... More

The RIU's rooms are spacious, non-smoking,clean and modern, and have flat-screen TVs, excellent beds, and iPod docks. They're among the best in Aruba, great balconies. Located on the Palm beach Aruba, Hotel RIU is the best choice for most of the tourists visiting the Happy Island.

Stayed at the Riu Palace in Aruba for our Honeymoon from 05/08/14 - 13/08/14. Hotel is a little dated but clean, the service, staff and food were fantastic. The view from our room was amazing overlooking the pool with a full sea view on the 7th floor. We had no problem booking into the restuarants so long as you are... More

Ok so let me just start by saying when you are booking an all inclusive you are looking for savings like every other person... All "All inclusives" has its flaws because of this, people who say that they have been to other all inclusives that didn't have any flaws are lying through their teeth! I mean seriously do you actually... More
