First, let me begin by saying this property has a lot of potential, a great location, and a nice beach. We traveled there for New Year's Eve and enjoyed the Aruba celebration and all the fireworks. Our actual experience, however, was awful. My parents, sister and brother-in-law, and husband and I tried to get away from a snowy winter in...

I have stayed here over 4 times. You can't beat the all inclusive. Beach and pool are great and the the hotel is right across the street from a great dinner/nightlife spot. The hotel was recently refurbished and looks great. The bartenders and other staff are fantastic, definitely One Happy Island!

Let me start off by saying, this was the best place I have ever been. I have been to many all inclusive resorts and this was by far the best. I also work for a big chain hotel and know what the expectations are. I went on this trip with my mom I am 29 and my mom in her...

The Riu palace hotel was a great hotel. The location is about 20-25 mins from downtown. The staff were friendly and very attentive. The rooms were clean and spacious. We had a partial ocean view jr suite. The view from balcony was amazing. I'm not normally a buffet person but ended up eating most of our meals there. The restaurants...

We read all the reviews, and decided this was the place for us. Our room, 707, overlooked the pool and the beach, had a large terrace/balcony for room service coffee in the mornings, had an unlimited mini-bar, a sleeping area and, two steps down, a separate sitting area. The bathroom had a two person stall shower with a rain forest...

RIU Palace - great hotel, great staff, great food and amazing beach! Would go back in a minute. The weather was fabulous, plenty of sun but extremely windy (all the time) Walking distance to many shops, restaurants including the Hard Rock Café where Yolanda took care of us - wonderful lady! The RIU Palace in Aruba is definitely a RIU!...

This is our 2nd stay in a Riu and they have improved (for instance, no need to make reservation for all "a la carte" restaurants). The hotel is of great standing, rooms are very clean and room service comes twice daily. Food is excellent but for a 2-week stay, it might be redondant 'cause the menu in all restaurants "a...

We took a trip as a work incentive with 60+ people. I had never done this before, working entirely via email with a company outside of the states. It was a little scary since I had never been here before. I worked directly with Berbel Dekker, the MICE manager. I decided to go a day ahead of our group to...
