After 2 years of postponing and waiting for this trip because of Covid we finally made it to the resort and as we approached from our shuttle I can see the building and knew already that this was going to be a problem but little did I know how bad it would be until we arrived. The hotel is going through a massive guestroom renovation and is being sequenced in the worst possible way. Basically half of the hotel guestrooms and balconies are completed and the other half are not and our room was right in between so when you get off of the elevator to the left was completely under construction and to the right some of the guestrooms were completed, some not and the corridors getting to your rooms were absolutely disgusting. The jackhammering of the existing concrete balconies started at 7am and went to close to 7pm EVERYDAY. There was one day water was pouring down from the ceiling in the lobbies, got stuck in the elevator for a bit, the lock on the public toilet trapped my wife for 15 min, power went out a couple of times and those were the good parts of this resort. In no way should this property be open during this renovation and in absolutely no way should they be charging what they are and especially not letting the guests know about this prior to arrival. This building was built in 1977 and who knows if the constant dust flying around had lead pain, asbestos or some other toxic material in it from that time but you could literally taste the dust in the air. It covered everything and everyone below at the pool, walkways, etc. Complete disappointment and the fact that nobody offered us any refund, upgrade, discount or move to another building on the property or even better another hotel nearby left a very bad taste on our mouths or perhaps that was just the construction dust.

My husband and I went to Aruba in June 2021. We visited for our honeymoon and had an amazing time. We stayed at the Rui Antillas and had an oceanfront view room. We can’t wait to go back….☀️☀️☀️🍹🍸🥂

Great time in Aruba and the Riu Antilles. We didn't find the construction as intrusive as we thought it would be, and were pleasantly surprised with everything. After reading the negative reviews we expected a dusty, messy hotel. The lobby, restaurants, bars, and pool area were all clean, attractive and very welcoming.

Staff are not very friendly. Bring your own cup for a drink, only a 4oz cup from them. Construction going on, lose power often, loud. Bring a speaker for your own music. Ran out of towels… no entertainment… can not leave buffet area with food. A/C does not cool off rooms. As a group we had had a lot of fun… go next door to sister resort for their buffet, much better.No captain Morgan made it a tough week.
