We had a family vacation at this resort in Aruba. We had 3 rooms for the family. Although we only had the standard rooms, they were clean and well looked after. We requested pool view which we got. We did 3 out of the 4 a la carte restaurants and found the food to be good. The buffet was excellent...

That being said, I was impressed with the resort. The rooms were huge and spacious, and I love the design of the separate (close the door) bathroom (at least in the junior suite). My view was an ocean view (on the 4th floor), and I overlooked the stage. The view every morning on the balcony was fantastic (I always order...

If you're tired of the hustle and bustle when you take a vacation--then this is the place to go. From the moment you arrive in the airport-they seek you out and absolutely take full care of you. They usher you to the correct bus take you to the hotel, handle your luggage and you don't have to do anything but...

The location and food at this hotel is excellent. Rooms are very well appointed but not 5 star. The staff were very very helpful and friendly. It is a very large hotel and depending where your room is it can be noisy. We had an amazing holiday and the sea view was exceptional.

Just returned from our second visit at the Riu Palace in Aruba. The hotel has gone through a renovation since we were there last. The lobby, buffet restaurant, fitness centre and restaurant near the beach were all updated. Everything looks much more modern. The lobby's decor is a little odd (pink paint with zebra print in various spots) but everything...

My husband booked a week as a surprise for my 40th Birthday. We absolutely love the Caribbean so he thought it would be a lovely treat to try anther island. The island itself is nice but definitely not the prettiest. Sadly its quite build up so the skyline is in my opinion ruined. Some of the hotels are a real...

I have routinely stayed at Riu Resorts and wanted my honeymoon in Aruba to be no different. I was promised various Honeymoon inclusions for my stay; none of which were provided. The service was mediocre and the change to open seating at the restaurants made it nearly impossible to eat at one of the specialty restaurants if you didn't arrive...

Just got home from the most fantastic holiday. We stayed all inclusive for seven days. Bit windy and that would be the only moan.

Aruba is a safe small island; this hotel does what it says on the tin - it is on a perfect white sandy beach backed by palm trees (it is Palm Beach after all) in the Caribbean. My favourite thing about this hotel is the beach and especially the walkway that runs along the front of all the hotels which...

Had an amazing holiday here. Got given a free upgrade for all 5 of us, 2 suites with a sea view.. Loved everything about this hotel, the food, pool, beach, staff. The pool entertainment kept my 23 year old son and both of my teenage daughters busy so my wife and I could chillout and enjoy the top branded cocktails....
