Picture perfect...

Ive stayed at RIUs before but this one was overall my favorite. The staff was friendly and professional yet welcoming. The check in process was easy and champagne was handed to us before we even finished checking in. The RIU is almost as beautiful as Aruba itself. And the kid friendly atmosphere was a bonus. No screaming kids splashing in the pool while their parents drink and ignore them lol. The dining options were overall delicious and each day restaurant offered a variety of fresh and hot food options. Men make sure you adhere to their dress code: pants and shirts with sleeves. They allowed some men with shorts but most i saw were khaki if allowed. Aruba is the only island ive seen the dress coded enforced. Women's dress code wasnt as formal. Overall we couldn't wear swimwear at the dinner time restaurants. Most people tended to leave the pools/beach by 5ish to go shower and change clothes for dinner so I saw no major problems with dress codes. Our least favorite restaurant was the Italian restaurant. I cant remember the name but it was our least favorite of the week. Also the staff seemed to be confused what red wine was vs. white wine. I'll just blame that on a language barrier. Also the alcohol being sure at the pool wasnt cheap. No hangovers or headaches from cheap liquors being poured into top shelf bottles here. The pools are nice. But we wished the swim up bar was bar better. It seemed kinda small in comparison to other RIUs (and it was smaller than the connected RIU which was kids friendly). We spent most of our time laying on the beach and in the ocean. Beach chairs are easy to get and the staff is very helpful with anything you ask for while on vacation. The only resason that I cant give this RIU a 5 star.... The bathrooms need to be updated. While the rooms and bathrooms were kept clean and fully stocked (housekeeping comes around multiple times a day) the bathrooms could use some work. You can see the wear and tear in on the toilet and tube. The other parts of the hotel are sooooo nice that there is no way the bathrooms should look like you are staying in a low budget beach hotel in your local town. Thankfully everything worked and was clean. Plus everything was so nice that you will likely not spend much time thinking about an outdated bathroom look. We were in a Junior Suite with Ocean View I would absolutely go back to this RIU with friends or a significant other. Its very relaxing. They have activities and shows if you likw as well. Also if you want to get out of the resort shops and restaurants are less than a half a mile away about a 5-8 mins walk.

the food, staff, cleanliness, pool/beach accommodations were outstanding. We had a problem with our room and it was immediately rectified. An adult, all inclusive was just what we were looking for and Aruba and the Riu did not disappoint us. I would Definitely, highly recommend this island and this facility.

What's to Love

All-inclusive everything: the cocktails, the grub, the utter awesomeness of it all.

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

It's right in the heart of Palm Beach where you can revel in with white sand, teal waves and Caribbean breezes.

Leave the kiddos at home. It's only beach-loving adults at this resort. Is that applause we hear?

Don't miss ordering the Aruba Ahriba drink. It's a specialty. Order up.

Riu prides itself on service, and here is no exception. You'll want for nothing. Prepare to be spoiled.

Activities all day long. Zumba, dancing, pool volleyball - you can join in or cheer on from the swim-up bar.

Eat, swim, drink and check out all the amenities at the family-friendly Riu next door. You have access to use them.

 

What We'd Change

Sometimes it can be windy on the beach, but find a quiet corner and enjoy the warm, Caribbean sun.
 

Why You Should Go

Aruba is one of the easiest islands to travel - US currency is accepted, the island is not too big & the people are genuine.

Aruba is filled with exciting excursions - snorkeling, 4-wheeling, parasailing. Adventure seekers look out.

If you're there for Carnival, you'll get to see lively, colorful, and entertaining dancing at the parade.

The pool concierge makes getting a drink delivered to your lounger a beachy breeze.

Get your dance party ready to hit Pacha, or test your luck the casino for a little extra cash.

Rent a bike and tour the island on your own, or hop on the public bus that travels the strip and costs less than $3.
