I came to the RIU Antillas on a girls trip January 27th-Feb 2nd. We were trying to decide between staying in an all inclusive hotel or a non all inclusive. We finally decided on the RIU Antillas. We liked that it was adults only. The room is old and needs updating but we didn't care too much because we weren't in it much. We had a balcony with an amazing view which made it better. The hotel is run down and old but we got to use the amenities at the RIU palace next door which was much nicer. The bartenders at all the bars were nice but the servers at the restaurants are the WORST I've ever encountered, Everyone was so rude! We would walk into the buffet and we'd have to seat ourselves and when I took a bottle of prosecco and brought it to our table the server got so angry. NO ONE CAME BY OUR TABLE TO SERVE US so don't get mad because I try to self serve. My friends and I have all worked in the service industry and come with $ ready to tip with and are very generous but maybe because this is a Dutch country they just don't care about tips. I've never come home with this much money from a vacation before! I went to Mexico exactly 4 weeks from this trip and got the best service ever! I wish these servers would take a page out of their book. The beach was beautiful in front of the hotel but you have to be up at 6 am if you want a hut on the beach. I'd definitely come back to Aruba but I'm not sure if I'd stay here.

Don’t stay here

When sunwing rates a hotel a 5 star you trust their 5 star rating and book your expensive vacation based on their expertise. This hotel is equivalent to a motel 6 in Toronto. The rooms are VERY outdated and everything inside is broken or chipped beyond repair. Staying in the room for more than 5 minutes is actually depressing. The staff will tell you their homes are better then the rooms and there is no upgrade. Every room is the same! Overall the staff and the restaurants are decent and will go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. For the pricing charged per accommodation I don’t see why they haven’t upgraded this hotel instead of just throwing the RIU name on a runned down motel in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Watch out for Rochelle at the front desk I seen multiple people screaming at her while she smirks last week. Not sure why they have her as an employee as she’s not equipped to deal with all types of customers. She is the only one giving guests a hard time. Ask to speak with Claudia she was very friendly and polite.

Great staff. Tasty food. Rooms are a bit dated. Entertaining evening shows. Received 2 birthday cakes, a birthday cupcake, a serenade by the evening show host, singing from breakfast servers, and a serenade by a mariachi band. Overall, great birthday! Beautiful, clear and clean beach. The sun is brutal. Wear lots of sunscreen. The wind is wicked and is what may keep me from visiting Aruba again.

Our one week stay at the Riu Palace Antillas was amazing! The staff was exceptional, the food was phenomenal and the hotel was gorgeous! Everything is laid back yet everything runs like clockwork. The bars and restaurants open on time and there is always plenty to be had.
