    Great Vacation

    My wife and I had a super vacation at Riu Antillas on our very first trip to Aruba. This was our first all inclusive vacation since my wife was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and we were concerned that she would get I'll from eating food with gluten or that was cross contaminated with gluten. We needn't have worried as at every meal a chef guided her as to what she could and couldn't eat at the buffet. She remained healthy throughout the week of our stay. The service was very good, the food was fresh and delicious, the ocean was as calm as a swimming pool and great for swimming or just wading. The nightly entertainment included professional performances and a White Night Rave Party.

    Horrible stay Customer Service NOT good

    Its a lot I can share about my stay at this resort, I came here in 2019 and stay in the Villas had a nice time and customer service was great, I refer this resort to my friend for her 50th b/day but we stay in the regular rooms (5 couples), the rooms was so mediocre for what we paid I thought the rooms will be a lil more appealing, customer service around the resort sucks bad, nobody wants to help you, they lie about 24 hrs. room service, which only service a very small welt salad and a stale cold sandwich that's it, you cant take any food up to your room out of the restaurants, none of the staff around the resort helps you when you asking a question or need assistance, for the money we spend for this resort customer service should have been at a 8 or 9, it was at a 2. I was so embarrassed I refer this resort my whole group was so disappointed from the mediocre room, the level of service around the whole resort, the key cards kept deactivated every single day, sheets and pillow cases was stained up which should have been thrown away, I kept apologizing all week for referring this resort to my friends, I spoke with manager, wrote a complaint as well not sure who are training the staff but they need a whole new leadership there, I will NOT BE BACK AT ALL. stay was from 5/20-5/24/24

    Aruba 2024

    This is our 5th stay at the RIU Antillas. We love the location of the property, the cleanliness, the service, and the food. Housekeeping is generally good, but sometimes hit or miss on getting enough towels. Beds and pillows could be better. Recognition of being repeat guests would be a nice touch, especially since our travel agent made mention of it in the bookingl.

    I do NOT reccomend

    This resort is outdated and does not offer premium beverages at the bars especially for the amount of money it costs to stay at the resort. The rooms are sterile with wall marks and stained sheets (I had to get them to change). The television volume in my room was broken and never fixed. The popular steakhouse restaurant was impossible to dine at as they only served a certain amount of guests a night. The other dining options were just okay. The “late night” places that served food were awful ( old dried pizza and no buns for the hot dogs). The entertainment offered was not impressive. I do not reccomend this resort at all. I would never return.
