Great time, great hotel, fantastic beach, but the rooms are a bit dated. Mini fridge wasn't refilled as frequently as it could have been. And shame about the constant strong winds but overall beautiful place and nice people. Would visit again this was second time I have been, this was the first time that I stayed in hotel for two...

My wife and I came here on our honeymoon and were throughly impressed with the hotel and staff. Everyone was so inviting and helpful. The food was great, there where so many different options to choose from. The entire entertainment crew lead by "Chico" were fantastic! We had so much fun with all the different activities they had each day.... More

A great place to stay. The all inclusive is impressive, room service and mini bar included. Upkeep of facility is wonderful. Rooms are clean and maintained during your stay. This was our 4th time back and it is consistent. Food is good and staff is friendly. It was planning a major renovation and I can't wait to see the changes.

The Riu Palace we previously stayed is under major renovation. We booked the Riu Palace which now occupies the old Westin which is next door. After reading reviews on tripadvisor we were quite concerned about what we would find since many were very negative. We lucked out by booking an ocean front room which is numbered 00; rooms recommended by... More

The buffet was the best!! Service was A+ , the casino was great , nightlife is just outside the door however we were fully entertained staying at the resort! there was construction on the opposite side of our room, and the rooms could eventually be updated but the views were amazing!.

Riu should be ashamed of themselves! Aruba has the nicest boardwalk that connects to all the resorts along Palm Beach and they have allowed their section to be completely overrun with sand that people with nice shoes on have to trudge through 3 inches of sand to walk their section of the boardwalk. We've been coming to Aruba for years... More

I honestly loved this place. The pool is awesome, the bars are very nice, the casino is very fun, and the restaurants are good quality for an all inclusive resort. However, a few of us in our group got money stolen from our rooms while we were at the pool one day. When we returned, our bags were basically turned... More

This is the newly purchased resort next door to the palace that is currently being renovated. I've been to the resort 2 years ago that's under construction, and many of the same employees were present for my stay at the Antilles resort. The people who help make it such a fun place to visit were the reason I wanted to... More
