We just came back from a 5 night stay at the Riu. Everything there was great, we all had a good time. the buffet was much better then other all inclusives we've been to. We ate at the Japanese resteraunt one night and the steak resteraunt another night. The Japanese resteraunt was great. The sushi was amazing, both at the...

We just returned home from our honeymoon at the RIU Palace and overall, we were satisfied. At check-in everything went smoothly and we were greeted with rum punch, which was very good. On our first day we encountered some turbulence when we were placed in a room (junior suite) in the side building. The room was very far away from...

We just returned from a week at the Riu, and WOW! We had been reading the reviews for the past couple months, and were a little worried, but they were just not true! I think a vacation is what YOU make of it, and then the rest will fall in place. The resort was definitely a 5 star/ From our...

We stayed here for 8 nights and will never return. When you arrive at the hotel you think how lucky you are because it's so beautiful but then you get inside. The musty oder is overwhelming and in the room - it's worse. The food is horrible, we had to go off the resort to enjoy the good food Aruba...

On all vacations there are pros and cons... All and all, my fiancé and I were extremely happy with everything..A few little things we weren't overly fond of, but it did not change our minds about how we felt about our vacation. The food was surprisingly delicious! Usually resort/all inclusive food is not all too good. The food was enjoyable....

We have been going to Aruba many many times since our first visit in 1982 because it is one of the few places where you can leave the resorts and walk all over the place, day and night, and be safe! During that time we have stayed in just about every hotel on the island. We stayed at this hotel...

It is a wonderful place for a romantic gateway – I met a number of couples on their honeymoons there. Since the island is so small, once get your mind set on resting, eating, drinking, and admiring the Caribbean blue, you’ll be happy. Otherwise – there is very little to see so if you are a natural born sightseer, you...
