I stayed at RIU Palace early February 2012 and enjoyed my time there. It was very breezy/windy and could not keep a hat (only if you tied it down). Probably because of the breeze the air temperature was very comfortable. It is my understanding that if it wasn't breezy, the humidity would have been most uncomfortable. There was one time...

Sunwing was our carrier and the service rep at the RIU in Aruba was terrible to say the least. The staff at the front desk attempt to be helpful but would rather not.

We just got back from Riu Palace and what a dissapointment. The room we were given backed onto adjacent hotel and parking lot.

I've been to Aruba a few times and usually try a different hotel. This was by far the most disgusting hotel I've ever stayed at in the world. I wasn't allowed to check in until 4pm and was told that I had a "gorgeous room waiting for me". I don't want to know what that check-in agent considers horrible. Upon...

Our first morning, we awoke to a rainbow arcing from the side of the building into the Carribean. So beautiful! And, I'm not much of an architect expert, but this place is absolutely beautiful in both interior and exterior design! Every corner is taken care of, from the bathroom to the lawn. The other reviews of the beds were true,...

My husband and I just returned from the Riu Palace Aruba. It is simply a wonderful resort to stay at! The staff were very friendly and accomodating.

This is our 3rd time at this resort. The staff were quick to recognize us and made us feel right at home, Jeffrey, the porter, Sandra, customer relations, Carmine the G.M, Ale the Matre'd.

We stayed at this resort in Feb.16-23/2012. From check-in to our departure, eveything was fabulous. The food was exceptional and the specialty restaurants were outstanding.
