My daughters and I recently stayed at the Palace Aruba, and did not want to come home! The resort was amazing! Extremely clean. The staff was always friendly and helpful - especially Jeam Pierre at the pool bar (he was wonderful)! Perfect location - close to shopping and beach activities! Can't wait to go back!

Most other resorts had a small beach area and...

Once again the Riu never disappoints! I stayed at the Costa Rica location and due to the great service I stayed at the Riu in Aruba. The resort staff is very friendly and willing to accommodate you and your needs. The rooms are very well kept and clean. The food at the specialty restaurants can be better. They weren't that...

Only my second time to Aruba, my first time was in 1989. This hotel was suggested by my travel agent as we were looking for an all inclusive as a change of pace. The hotel was a solid four star and only a few things I found to be lacking. The grounds the pool and the beach were all excellent....
