Firstly let me start by saying I do not know how this hotel has the palace status from Riu. We have stayed in better standard Riu hotels. This review will be as honest as you will find. Check in was quick and easy and first impressions were exciting. The room was in the "old block" as all the other blocks...

Just back from a fantastic week at the Riu Palace hotel Aruba. This hotel has lovely friendly staff who bend over backwards to help and serve you, we never had one problem, whatever we wanted we could have from food to drink and any time of day or night.

My girlfriend and i stayed here between Sept 10 to Sept 17 and had am amazing time. We arrived at about 12pm and to our surprise our room was already ready. Even better, we got upgraded from a standard room to a junior suite with a partial ocean view. The room was very spacious and for the most part very...

My family and I have stayed in many riu hotels in the Caribbean so I was pleased when I realised there was a Riu in Aruba. We arrived at the hotel and was welcomed with a refreshing drink and a quick, easy check in. The bell boys took our bags and our holiday began. We headed straight to our room,...

My wife and I have just returned from a two week stay at the Riu Palace Hotel in Aruba in room 901. We booked a Jacuzzi suite, which cost quite a bit more, but was very well worth it. The Jacuzzi was on the very large balcony and we could lie there with a drink looking out to sea watching...

Let me start by saying I am very hard to please and always am looking for 5 star worthy accomodations. I don't normally stay at all-inclusive resorts unless traveling with children and have heard good reviews. Needless to say, due to me traveling with children I was advised to stay at the RIU by my travel agent but she made...

We too had the the problem with the Brazillian footballers, rude and loud and which certainly demolished our hopes of a 5* star holiday and the chances of a perfect surrounding for our sons wedding on the beach. Apparently they come every year so make sure these ignorant people are not staying at the same time you visit. This was...

My Husband and I selected the RIU Palace Aruba for our Honeymoon spot between September 17th-22nd and LOVED it! We stayed at an Ocean Suite -- the view was PRICELESS every morning, definitely worth the extra money for the upgrade! We had a minor issue getting our safe to work when we first arrived; however, someone came right up and...
