Premium brand drinks and great cocktails. Service was friendly and attentive. Our sea view room was fabulous. Mini bar well stocked and often. Optics in the room a great addition. Only... More

The resort is absolutely beautiful. Rooms are terrific and clean. Beach and pool were great. Breakfast and lunch were good. Dinner at the buffet was good but we were tired of the buffet .. we went to only one specialty restaurant, the steakhouse. It was terrible. We ate out 5 of the 7 nites. We had a terrific time, however,... More

I came to the Riu Palace Aruba for both my husband and my birthday in October 2015 which are a week apart from each other. We felt so pampered and happy at this place that we decided to come back in April with the whole family. The hotel is beautiful. The pool is in the middle of everything and is... More

The hotel the food and the staff were all great. The only complaint I have, is that guests were paying staff to reserve sun beds and not turning up until late, and if you were out early to get a good spot they would move your stuff to accommodate those who were paying them.. Making it difficult to get a... More

Stayed at this hotel last week in July first week in August 2016 and we will certainly be returning. Check-in was really smooth considering how busy it was, we was even welcomed with a nice cold glass of champagne……nice touch! Once you’ve completed the check-in you just leave your heavy luggage for the bell-boys to sort, yes they may want... More

One of the best in the Carribean All Inclusives that we have been to. They are constantly trying to improve but "sunbed nightmare" is a reality. Beds are reserved with towels and pegs the night before in some cases. This issue can sometimes get confrontational. They need more beds in shady areas. No need to reserve prior bookings for their...
