My family and I got back from Aruba a few days ago. I was a little worried because I read a lot of bad reviews before we left. This hotel is beautiful and kept very clean. We were in Building A Junior Suite with full ocean view. We never had a problem with the staff, all of them were very nice and helpful if you needed anything. I loved sitting on the balcony when we got home and enjoying the view.
The resort is beautiful and the beach is gorgeous. The ocean is so clear and feels like a hot bath, I'm missing it already.
The Buffet was amazing, the food was so fresh and had something for everyone to enjoy. We tried the other restaurants in the Hotel and the were alright.
We went to Gianni's Italian Restaurant a couple of times. Its just down the road from the Riu and it was excellent. The resort is safe and we would enjoy going out for a walk after dinner. We never had watered down drinks when we were there. They put plenty of alcohol in them and they were very good.
The huts on the beach go quickly so you have to get early if you want one. The sun gets pretty hot and its nice to have a little shade, our grandchild is 3 so she enjoyed having a nap under the hut.
The weather was perfect, it rained a couple of days for a few minutes and then it cleared up. All of us really enjoyed our trip and had no complaints with this Hotel, we want to go back next year.
