After reading reviews we were wary of our stay. However, we are happy to say that we loved our stay at the Riu Palace.
To adress some of the concerns other reviewers have expressed:
The food is top notch. Some of the best food we have ever tasted, at a resort, on a cruise ship, or an outside restaurant. Especially, Krystal, the fusion restaurant. Each dish we tried was exceptional. The restaurant would fit in with the top rated restaurants in NYC. You will not go wrong with any of the other specialty restaurants either. Its just a matter of food preference.
The service was excellent. Service was promt, professional, and curteous. Dinning tables were always ready. Drink orders were promptly taken and brought.
The purchase of the Westin next door turned out to be a plus for us. The vacancy of the Westin resluted in added beach space/ chairs. We did not have to get up early to reserve palapas/ chairs as others have complained. We went to the beach at our convience. Pleant of palapas were still available by the Westin. Construction was a non-factor during our stay.
Unfortunately, the rooms are outdated as people say. But they are clean and spacious. Of all the reasons to go to Aruba, the room is the least of our concerns.
