We husband and I recently stayed here for 6 days. We had an amazing time. The food is fantastic! There is so much to choose from at every meal. We never made it to the restaurants but the buffet was always delicious. Owen was our favorite waitstaff. He has an awesome beer trick! The beach is beautiful and we never had a hard time finding a good spot. The staff on the beach was always helpful finding shade and bringing chairs. There’s a good snorkel spot right off shore- not the best on the island but easy and fun! The hotel staff are fun and friendly. We felt very welcomed. The hotel is in a great spot and there is good shopping and dining nearby. The rooms are in need of updating which surprised me a little, but the bed was very comfortable and we didn’t spend a lot of time in the room anyway! Plus it was very clean. The lobbies and pool bars are all very nice. My only complaint is the pool closing at 7pm. That’s too early! I wanted to spend all the daylight at the beach and swim in the evening but the pool closed at sunset. It is for this reason that I would consider another hotel should I ever come back to Aruba. Everything else at this hotel was wonderful but the pool closing at 7 was very disappointing.

Hotel's Favorite
The all-inclusive, adults only resort by Riu here on Palm Beach in Aruba was fantastic. It’s the first all-inclusive resort I’ve done (not counting cruising), and I was thoroughly impressed. The staff was friendly, plentiful, and attentive and the food was better than I expected. The location was perfect, right on Palm Beach. Everything was just right for maximum relaxation and pleasure. I had an incredible time and can’t wait to come back. The food: The breakfast buffets had everything, including mimosas and Bloody Marys, if that’s part of your vacation breakfast (not mine!). Plenty of fresh fruit and even a fruit juice bar with all kinds of squeezed concoctions! My fave was the orange, ginger, spinach energy juice. The dinner buffets were also great, tons of choices. Decent sushi a couple of the nights, good salad bar, and plenty of protein options. And the sit-down restaurants were good as well. The best (the one you have to line up prior to its opening for a table) was the Steakhouse. Worth the wait. Krystal and Rimini were good. Staff and service are top notch, wine refills consistent. There are several bars around, you can freely access both properties (Riu Antillas is the adult side and Riu Palace is family friendly). I had espresso or chocolate martinis for dessert a couple of the nights. There are also coffee bars for hand-crafted cappuccino!! I was impressed that all of that was included too! Swim-up bar was fun, plenty of places to get your drink on and more kinds of daiquiris and beach drinks than you can possibly consume (although the actual alcohol context was definitely watered down). There are only two kinds of beer on Aruba - Chill and Balashi - which I found tasted strikingly similar to one another and both very light. Never had to wait for a drink and everyone was so nice and friendly!! Non-motorized water sports are included, we got stand-up paddle boards and snorkel gear during our trip and had fun with those! Crowd is tame but fun, vibes are chill, and nothing negative I can say about this place! It’s one of those “when” I come back, not “if” I come back places!!

Stayed here this September 2019. The hotel is a little dated but have heard that it is getting a refurbishment within 2yrs. Even though the hotel was very clean amid service was excellent,food was excellent especially the a la cart restaurants bar staff always attentive if you wanted premium drinks you had to ask for them otherwise you got local drinks. The pool area was always clean and beds out ready for use also the beach was only a few steps away. I would recommend a holiday here

First trip to Aruba will not be my last! I know there have been mixed reviews for this Hotel but my friend and I found it to be just as we had hoped. Welcoming us with a glass of champagne, the staff continued to be as helpful and kind for the remainder of our stay. We especially enjoyed Luis’ warmth and friendliness at the bar and Daphne added an extra touch to our room each day. Yes, there are people who wake up early to hold a spot on the beach but if you like to sleep in you will still find spots to put a chaise in sun or shade. There are many choices for pools as the Riu Antillas has a sister hotel 10 steps away that has been refurbished quite beautifully. Please check out both sites. But who needs a pool when the Caribbean waters are so awesome! There is no shortage of food choices and we chose to eat at the buffet each day. For those who question whether this is a 5 star hotel - I think it is as much about what each of us brings within ourselves as we travel this world as it is what we find when we arrive. Here in Aruba at the Riu, I hope you found what my friend and I did- pure joy! Happy Birthday BTF!

The location is prefect for relaxing the sand is white and soft (at the ocean) its a little rocky between the hotel and the water line so be prepared. Its also super Windy not a little like a lot its the equivalent of being sand blasted at times. The hotel is super out dated and very tired to the point that it can't be cleaned or repainted enough. I understand from the Sunwing Rep that this Riu was scheduled for a renovation next year. My recommendations is spend the few hounded more stay at the sister RIU resort next door that is completely modern. The food how ever is incredible. Breakfast and Dinner were the highlights.I did not find the Steak House anything to write home about but did it as everyone else did. The Italian wasn't bad and my other half is a hard core Italian and he didn't complain (he didn't have pasta either) The seafood is amazing so I would recommend you try. The Staff is super friendly and don't seem to treat you any different if you tip or do not tip (expect for the staff behind the bar @ the pool if you don't tip its like being in a bar in Vegas)
