We were in Building B in a Junior-Suite overlooking the pool with an Ocean View. We were on the 10th floor! Truly enjoyed our visit. Looking forward to returning again next year. Restaurants were very good in the resort as well . Staff was extremely friendly. Could not ask for anything more!!!

We stayed at Riu Palace with family of four. Overall great experience, located right on the sandy Eagle beach. Great all inclusive buffet and a la carts restaurants that don't require reservation. We really enjoyed the entertainment team and nightly shows. The only downside was front desk management not friendly.

Without question, the best vacation we ever went on. The food was fabulous and our favorite members of the wait staff were Ana Lucia and Chahaira. They were wonderful. When we first got there, there were a couple of issues with the room. Almost as soon as we hung up with the front desk, someone was knocking at our door...

The hotel is lovely! From the spacious lobby to the wonderful pool to the beach it presents very very well. The buffet is terrific! There are different features every evening. I'm not really one to eat fish but I must admit to enjoying more than a few samples. Mmmmm. The rooms are quite comfortable although I must say that the...

We stayed in this hotel for six nights, and were traveling with a large group of people in my husband's company. We have stayed in all inclusive resorts on other islands such as Jamaica and the Dominican republic. Aruba is a great place to visit because of the sunshine, beaches and beautiful water, and safer feel than other islands. We...

I am a fussy breakfast snob and Elizabeth in the breakfast buffet takes Great care of me! I get Elizabeth section every morning. Elizabeth makes sure the water and beverages stay filled and ice cold. They have a lot of different foods to eat. The cooks will make you a fresh egg however you want it.

We really did enjoy our stay at Hotel Riu Palace. The staff was great especially the entertainment staff. I would suggest bringing towel clips as there is a constant wind that will blow your towels. We also brought our own insulated cups which were filled with anything we asked for! We ate at the Japanese restaurant 1 night and the...
