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!

We stayed at the all inclusive RIU Palace on Palm Beach. the beach was beautiful, no seaweed and after walking the beach along the other resorts, the RIU Palace has the best beach space. Most other resorts had a small beach area and...

My wife and I chose to stay at Riu Palace for our honeymoon. The hotel is very big, and it's nice to have access to the adjoining Riu property next door. I do wish we would have went to an adults only location for our honeymoon, but at the time we booked this was the best thing going. The pool...

We have just recently stayed at the Riu Palace in Aruba. The resort is a fantastic all inclusive way to spend your time in Aruba. We booked a junior suite and the room was quite spacious with a sitting area and a big bathroom. We had a long balcony and a beautiful view out to the pool and the ocean...
