I am a fussy breakfast snob and Elizabeth in the breakfast buffet takes Great care of me! I get Elizabeth section every morning. Elizabeth makes sure the water and beverages stay filled and ice cold. They have a lot of different foods to eat. The cooks will make you a fresh egg however you want it.

We really did enjoy our stay at Hotel Riu Palace. The staff was great especially the entertainment staff. I would suggest bringing towel clips as there is a constant wind that will blow your towels. We also brought our own insulated cups which were filled with anything we asked for! We ate at the Japanese restaurant 1 night and the...

We stayed at this resort March 4-11, 2017. We are experienced world travelers and have stayed at AIs all over Mexico, Jamaica, and the DR. Overall, we were very satisfied with the Riu Palace Aruba. Check in was quick with a nice glass of sparkling wine, we were given the room we requested (building B junior suite ocean view, king...

I went here for my honeymoon with my wife and boy did we have a great time! I've been to Cuba, Mexico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic and I can say I never had such great food as we did here! The weather was great too because you would always get a nice breeze so it was too bad at any point....

My family and I visited the Riu Palace last week- March 11-18th. After doing my research I thought we would have had a wonderful experience. However, the food was awful for an all inclusive resort. Many people complained and nothing was done. We spend 4 of the 7 nights eating in the strip because we could t ale another bad...

Flight We (4 adults 1 toddler) flew from Gatwick with Thomson Premium service to Aruba on 9th August. The flight time was good at 8 hours 40 mins. On arriving in Aruba our luggage came through very quickly. We then waited around 40 minutes for the pushchair. No airport official seemed to know where the pushchair would arrive from. After...

I was initially disappointed when we entered our room - there was a musty smell and it felt like walking into a basement. The, "king-size" bed is, indeed, two full-sized beds pushed together and the sheets are tucked so tight that there's just no way to make it feel like a king. Once the remote fell between the crack which...

This was my first experience with an all-inclusive resort. I was not disappointed. The staff took very good care of us everywhere: housekeeping, front desk, wait and bar staff. The room had a liquor dispenser and mini-bar. The restaurants had great selections. My favorite was the Japanese-themed restaurant. With waiter, Alfredo, recommended the shiitaki-encrusted steak. It was delicious and cooked...

I just got back 2 days ago from my stay here. I did extensive research before I left and was very much excited, and have never been so disappointed on a trip in all of my life. My 2 girlfriends and I went to celebrate my birthday, getting there, the decor already threw us off in the lobby, but we...

Went on a Company Sponsored trip. Not a big boozer in the sun, but many others were and they had a grand time. Food choices are very good as well - I would suggest to leave property as there are many many excellent restaurants in Aruba. Casino is small, but next door - much larger
