What's to Love

The beach at Riu Palace Aruba is great, the pool is awesome and the food and drink are wonderful. Be sure to check out the Bloody Mary station, where you can make it your way.


What We'd Change

The gourmet a la carte restaurants are very popular, so seating is not always available when desired. It won't be a problem if you make reservations when you first arrive.


Why You Should Go

The Riu Aruba is the newest and biggest all-inclusive resort on the island, conveniently located right in the heart of the famous Palm Beach.

Hotel Description

Riu Palace Aruba: Tour Wreck Diving Adventures from the Aruba Riu

Smack dab in the middle of famous Palm Beach on Aruba's glistening southern shore is the perfect beach resort: Riu Palace Aruba. All-inclusive, the area's newest resort offers the best of Aruba: sparkling beaches, coral-encrusted shipwrecks, Colonial architecture and world-class golf.

Divers in search of the best wreck diving in the world can simply walk to the resort's dock to catch a boat to the 400-ft Antilla, one of the best-known shipwrecks in the world. If you aren't a diver, no worries. PADI-certified instructors at the resort are waiting to teach you. Or you might prefer the thrill of parasailing, the challenge of kayaking, or the excitement of jet skiing. On the other hand, for a more leisurely experience, take your sweetie on a pedal-boat excursion. And if you really want to win her heart, book a dinner cruise!

Accented by domed, white pavilions and bordered by palms, the pool at Aruba Riu appears like a fantasy straight from the Arabian Nights. Stretch out on a pool chair to bask, or lie back in one of the partially submerged lounges built into the pool itself, but only after a visit to the swim-up bar for a cold one. You'll be famished after your day in the sun, so choose from a buffet with "show cooking" or four a la carte restaurants serving Japanese, Italian and fusion cuisines.

If you love the links, you won't have to go far from the resort to enjoy world-class golf. At the northwestern tip of Aruba, a few miles from the resort, is Tierra del Sol. Robert Trent Jones Jr. incorporated its rough terrain into his design for this 18-hole course, which is the only championship course on Aruba. When your day full of fun is done, head back to your Junior Suite with an Ocean View and a mango daiquiri to sip as you soak in the soothing waters of the hydro-massage bathtub and unwind. If you need anything, don't worry because Riu Palace Aruba All-Inclusive Resort also boasts 24-hour room service.
