Wonderful week with my wife
My wife and I arrived on Saturday and are staying through next Saturday. The Riu Paradise Antilles is a very clean hotel well situated on a beautiful part of Palm Beach. The staff is exceptionally friendly, and there are a lot of good restaurant choices. My one suggestion is that if you are a light sleeper, you will want to avoid a room on the south side of the hotel. There is a major construction project next door, and you can hear the heavy equipment after 8 am.
Great Value, Fun place to stay
This may be long but I wanted to give my entire and honest review from our 8 days at the RIU Antillas. We go to Aruba each year and this is our first time at the RIU. The lobby is clean and updated. They have a very nice bar in the Lobby with friendly bartenders. All inclusive makes it a great value however the liquor was low quality. If you drink frozen drinks you cant tell the difference. The wine wasn't great. We actually went out several nights so we could enjoy a good glass of wine. The food..... Buffet breakfast was great, Buffet lunch offered several options and also great. Dinner not so good! You have to show up 30 minutes before they open to get first seating and after that you're on a wait list. We did this one night and had a horrible 1 star meal. We also tried the buffet for dinner one night. Not horrible but expected a little better. The other 6 nights we left the resort for better food and drinks for dinner. That being said the all inclusive cost was less than several other hotels in the area without the free food and drinks so overall a great value. Our room was a Jr. Suite ocean front. Incredible views! The rooms need a good scrubbing and a little touch up paint. That said we shower and sleep in the room the rest of the time we are on the beach or enjoying the island. The bed was very comfortable. The AC didn't cool the room to our liking but we didn't complain as it wasn't that bad. The best part of the RIU are the employees. They are FANTASTIC. so very nice, they remember you and always have a smile. The pool is large but you have to get a towel in a chair by 7am if you want to save a chair for latter. They always have room on the beach although it was so windy that we couldn't stay on the beach during this trip. They have a separate bar side swim up pool. We tried it one time but it was disgustingly dirty!!! Very sad to see this as we would have used it every day. Several others commented on how nasty the water looked. Poolside drinks we easily obtained by any of the poolside staff with a smile. I really wanted to give this place a 5 instead of the 4 but due to the nasty bar pool and the sub standard dinners i had to knock it down one spot. That being said I will probably go back next year. This place was extremely fun to visit despite its shortcomings.
Great value for the price - wouldn't stay anywhere else!
Second time staying here, and it did not disappoint. The lunch buffet was great again, and we went to the Pirate stunt show on Wednesday night and it was entertaining. The rooms could use some slight updating (carpets, USB charging ports, etc) but overall, the all-inclusive, adults (18+) only vibe of this place is what my husband and I love about it.
This was my second trip to this resort, went with two friends for a girls vacation, we had a very good time . Staff was very attentive, we had a couple of issues locking our safe, we called the desk and they sent someone right up to open to for us. They came around every afternoon to see if we needed anything, water , towels, etc. We always saw people cleaning around the resort, food was good, the breakfast and dinner buffets were great, I am a picky eater and always found something I liked. I would recommend this resort to anyone😊
So much fun!
Great time. Room is NOT outdated. How much are you in the room anyway? Buffet was great and had so many options. Didn’t eat at restaurants due to not wanting to wait in line since you can’t make reservations. Staff was friendly and accommodating.
