Spent 4 nights at the Riu Palace Aruba on family trip. We had 3 rooms oceanfront and on the second night my son was taking a shower when the ceiling fell. We went down and talked to the staff and took a day before he was moved. I have followed up and response has been horrible .

The Riu is all inclusive. We booked a week here to celebrate my wife's birthday. We did a vacation package with Jet Blue, saving approximately $1,200 against booking separately. We have a junior suite, with a great view of the pool and ocean. Room is spacious and clean. Two

We had a wonderful time - the food at the RIU is excellent and the staff are friendly and professional. Aruba itself is a beautiful island! The only reason we did not give a five out of five is that the room was way too damp for an island that is dry. This is not the first

Just booked the Rui palace which is the best block to stay in?
Good luck! I hope you have done the all-inclusive or you will not have a good time! The rooms seem to be ok but you have to watch what is broken or missing so you don't get charged extra. All rooms lead to pool and beach, I don't believe any face the water......

There is a breeze during the day, but it is not overwhelming. The evening tends to be breezier but comfortable.

They have buffet for breakfast lunch and dinner. They also have à la cart restaurants which are really good. In so far as smoothies couldn’t tell you but I’m sure if you asked someone certainly would be able to make it for you. Good choice of hotel enjoy your vacation.

"We all have different taste, if you don’t like the room ask the reception to change, they are very helpful, I never heard NO during my stay."
"The rooms facing in to the pool had very small balconies."
"I liked the first floor...easy access to pools and ocean."
"Book your own,... don’t go with Sunwing! Rooms high above would have less noise. Ocean view (full) is worth it!"
"Building B, overlooking the pool....balconies are enjoyable and cool as sun does not shine directly on this portion of the building"
