Amazing Holiday!
27Bullseye1, Sheffield, United Kingdom

We recently stayed at this hotel and can honestly say that we were highly impressed. Our room was lovely, and had a beautiful view of the ocean and surrounding area. We were able to sit on the balcony and had an amazing view of the sunset each night. The room had all the facilities required, a very large comfortable bed, plenty of storage space and hangers (which you don't always get enough of), a fridge which was well stocked and restocked as soon as it was needed and drinks dispensers containing all well known popular brands of alcohol. The room itself and also the bathroom was very spacious. The cleaners did a brilliant job of cleaning and restocking when required The food in the hotel is amazing! We ate mainly in the buffet restuarant, there is lots of choice and you can have something different every evening. There is something for everyone and it is nice to see the cooking staions where food is cooked infront of you, I particulary enjoyed the flambed pasta. We did also eat in the Arubian restaurant which was lovely and an opportunity to try some local cuisine. All food was beautifully cooked and presented. We tried all the bars located around the hotel and found them to be well stocked with a variety of drinks and we tried many of the cocktails. The facilities at the hotel are second to none, from the bars and restuarants to the pool area which is as relaxing or lively as you want it to be. Also the fact that this hotel is right onto a beautiful white sandy beach which lovely warm clear blue water is also a bonus. All the staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. They all work extremely hard to ensure your holiday there is special. It was also nice that the manager came and spoke with us and everyone else during our time here, just to pass the time of day and check that we were having a good holiday. We couldn't fault this hotel in anyway and would certainly stay here again when we return to Aruba (One Happy Island!) This was an amazing holiday made even more special by the people who work here!

A great break

We stayed here for a week for our anniversary, we were greeted in our room with a lovely dessert platter to congratulate us. I will admit that the rooms are a little dated but the beds are really comfortable and I will take that over decor any day! The staff couldn’t be more helpful and they really go out of their way to make your stay as good as possible, the food was nice too, plenty to choose from. We have had a fantastic time in Aruba, so much to see and do. Wouldn’t hesitate to return x

Riu Palace Antillas - Great place to enjoy Aruba
Jamdeb15, Manalapan, New Jersey

We just finished staying 5 days and we enjoyed each day. The pool area is fun from opening thru closing. If you wish to get involved they welcome it, if you wish to stay on the sidelines no problem. The pool bar is constantly the place to meet new friends and enjoy the day. The beach (Palapas) are aplenty and staff are available to assist with a set-up. Breakfast / lunch buffets have numerous options for all! Dinner onsite is one option or you can venture out and enjoy the fine restaurants throughout the island. One negative, the rooms need to be upgraded - the balance of the property appears to be new and kept sparkling clean. Just enjoy the lobby bar (great place)!

Shady ethics

So I am not normally the guy that reviews places but I felt the public needed to be aware of some very shady practices at this facility. There have been many negative reviews of this place and I don’t agree with them. The facility is great and I am pretty picky and have traveled the world and know nice when I see a nice place. My problem with them is selling one thing and then putting you somewhere else. I bought a suite and they put me in a junior suite without letting me know. Was it a mistaken? No it wasn’t because they did the same thing to my traveling friends. They over sold the suites and stuck us in junior suites hoping we would not notice. That is total BS. We would not have known but we happen to make friends in a suite beside us and saw the difference. So we called them out and they said it was a computer error. They are absolutely shady and liars. I would like to use stronger language but I want people to take my review serious and beware so they don’t get shafted. Then they wanted me to Call reservations and get the credit. Really? You fix it front desk. It’s as mad as I have ever been over a room. I am typically easy to get along with but the way this was handled was absolutely unacceptable. I thought I was dealing with a shady mafia hotel and not a world wide resort. Wow

This was my first time staying at an all inclusive resort and the Hotel Riu Antillas did not disappoint. From the minute I walked into the hotel I was treated as though I was a longtime friend. The service was top notch and I wanted for nothing the entire trip. There were plenty of dining choices and the staff was amazing. The concierge staff was especially helpful in making reservations for various reservations and offering information. The friendliness of the staff and all locals made our stay one to remember. Special kudos to Georgina (concierge desk) and Jonathan, Carlos, Mery and all of the pool bar staff for entertaining us. The Riu Antillas was the cleanest resort I have ever stayed in.
