Perfect couple get-away
First visit to Aruba. April vacation, beautiful weather, great hotel. We were on the 12th floor. Rooms were clean and had everything you would need. The all-inclusive factor was key! The food was awesome. Varied, fresh, excellent. Nice to have all the alcohol included. We chose the adult-only side. Perfect for "adults" and couples. Able to use the facilities at the Riu Palace- which we did but ended up over at the Antillas all the time. The restaurants were great but we found that the buffet was just as good if not better. If you want one of the huts on the beach, send your husband out around 6:30-7:00am to put your towels on to reserve. We went form the beach, to the beautiful pools, to the pool bar, back to the beach, to a fabulous buffet lunch and then back to the beach and pool again. Very relaxing vacation!More

Our vacation started off by checking into our hotel (Riu Palace) only to be told that they were overbooked and we were being moved to the adults only Antillas hotel. We were compensated the 7 night stay, so we couldn't really complain. The lobby and grounds at the Antillas were very nice, BUT the hotel rooms/hallways smelled of mildew and were very dated. Hallway rugs were worn and torn, tiles broken, etc. They definitely need to be remodeled. The lamp shade in our room had mildew all over it. Some of the people we traveled with were not moved to the adults only hotel because they had a 16 year old and the first few day we tried to dine together at the Palace we were told we couldn't eat there, that we needed to eat at the Antillas. Although we were initially told that we could eat anywhere. After a few days of complaining, this was resolved. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. To my surprise, the food was actually pretty good. Although the lunch buffet was pretty much the same everyday (not great). We like to stay up late and at night there is really nothing to eat. It would be nice if there were options for late night snacks. Room service menu is very limited, not many choices.More
Very clean, well maintained resort!
I must start out by saying that the Riu Palace Antilles was an amazing place for any couple looking for a great destination to spend time together. The food was amazing, so much to choose from that you will not get sick of the food in anyway! This resort has everything you could possibly think of when it comes to food. From a premium Steakhouse, a high end gourmet restaurant, an authentic Italian restaurant, and a delicious Aruban restaurant the four Alacart restaurants make you feel like your in heaven.he line ups start an around 5:30 for the alacart restaurants, so it's best to get there early to make it into the restaurants of your choice. There are two sittings in the alacart restaurants (6:30, 9:00) so if you wanna get in,you must be there early as mentioned before. Don't let the idea of boring golden buffets come to mind, honestly... the buffetat this hotel is unbelievable. Every night they have a different theme night, and the food on the buffet is to die for, I recommend walking through all the stations first before filling your plate, because there is so much selection to choose from! You will leave any meal as one happy person. The hotel is so well maintained by their cleaning staff that it's not uncommon to see someone washing floors, cleaning bathrooms, or picking up debris left by inconcerderate guests. The hotel is spotless from top to bottom! The whole country of Aruba rates a 1% crime rate for a population of 150,000 people, your safe toleave your resort to go shopping and walking the streets without any issues. I highly recommend this hotel over any other hotel ice world, you will not be disappointed.More

The best food
Let me start by saying the room in antillas are not Nice !!!!! I didn't like my room at all it gave me a jail feeling hard metal doors etc , the room was not cozy at all. We asked to have our room changed but, at the front desk they told us all the room are the same they bought the hotel from the Westin so that's why it's not "Riu Standard" which explains a lot.... me and my friend went to other side and room where greattttt. when I go back I will definitely be staying on the Riu Aruba side. My main goal was to get away from KIDS !! That's why we picked the antillas side which was great !! Me and my friend don't like kids. The food was great everything I ate and drank was good !!! The hotel itself was beautiful no complaints. I recommend this hotel Riu Aruba side and Antillas side for more of a peaceful stay ! More
