    Nice Trip

    We just arrived back from a week long trip to Aruba, it was very nice. The hotel was clean, food was great, drinks.....ok, service very good, pool very big, no hot tube outside 😲entertainment was lacking both at the Palace and Adults only (music and dancing, disco opened late?) Overall I would recommend this resort to others

    they just dont care

    We never checked in. They wanted to show us a room b4 check in to see if we liked it. The room had not yet been clean the carpets were dirty and also had cracks in the bath tub . So they basically showed us a uncleaned room. Housekeeping had not even been there, We were then shown a second room that was in a hallway that had just been painted " WET PAINT" all over the hallways. The room smelled overwhelming with paint and I have Asthma so it would have been a detriment to my health, There were no other rooms available and they would no give us a refund for our 4 night stay which totaled 2600.00.

    My wife and I are staying here for our honeymoon and we absolutely love it. There literally is nothing for us to complain about! Staff are amazing, bartenders are fabulous, rooms are great at least ours is, and the food is great. All inclusive adults only we can’t get enough of this place. We’ve already said we will be coming back again. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a beach type getaway. Be aware it’s really windy here so be mindful when packing.

    One Happy Island-Aruba

    Riu Plalace was palatial and amazing, great food, lots of food in the buffet, the restaurants are OK but the buffet is the best.!! amazing beach and tiki huts, but get there really really early before breakfast or you will not have a place to lounge until later by the beach. Entertainment was very good geared for Spanish speaker, but we had a blast walking on Palm Beach first thing in the morning for exercise. Pools,bar games Jacuzzi's beach fun!!!! We had a nice room with a balcony overlooking pool and beach view!!!!! amazing it did not disappoint! Welcome Home!!!

    New Years Eve in Aruba

    Second time in Aruba and first time at this hotel. Nothing to complain about other than you had to get up early to get a chair on the beach and the snack bar needed a few more options other than popcorn and nacho chips. Other than that it was clean, safe and an abundant of food! I would definitely stay at this resort again. Aruba will always be the best Caribbean Island!
