Sitting in the lobby waiting for my bus to the airport, thought I'd leave a review while it's very fresh! First off, Aruba really is beautiful! Wonderful people as well! Hotel Staff: incredible service provided by all staff. Our first night here we had a problem with our rooms and these had to move rooms. The management (a gentleman named...

We came down for our 10th Wedding Anniversary and we were not disappointed. The staff couldn't have been nicer, and the accommodations were great. Great view from our room. Other than the bed being slightly uncomfortable and the tub floor was like you were walking on Jello, the hotel was great. The food was acceptable for all-inclusive buffet (lunch at...

This hotel is so bad, I don't even know where to begin. I could write a novel on how bad my experience here was. I wish this website would let me rate it less than one star. Looks nice on the outside, but walking through the 100 pound revolving door is like walking through the gates of hell. The lobby...

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...
