tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Nicole V :
Honeymoon - 8 nights - Amazing time

Stayed at the Riu from 11/12 - 11/20; entire trip was amazing from start to finish. Weather was very windy the first two days, but after that it was perfect for the beach/pool/excursions. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful for anything we needed - the outside night bar staff were awesome and made our trip even more fun(Mery, Jonathon and Tania) - great time hanging out with them and sad to leave - local excursions were a blast and were well worth paying for

  • Tanya N :
Excellent time

We stayed at Riu palace antillas in September of this year and loved it so much that came back two months after. Everything was perfect: Room (the ocean view suite we had last time and the villa this time. The rooms kept very well maintained, the hotel's cleaning personal is doing a great job. Lots of fresh towels, everything is getting refilled without any delays. The food is very good and restaraunt staff is very friendly. Special thanks to Alex and Freddie from Steakhouse, Chahaira from Malmok and Jan Pierre from Atlantis.

Awsome trip

We stayed in the RIU Palace Antillias, it was absolutely perfect, beach, service, rooms, restaurants, buffets, pools everything you would want in an all inclusive resort. We were 5 couples and not a complaint from anyone. We even did excursions and we usually don't. Beds were comfortable, pools were clean I would definitely go back and bring more friends.

  • Mike N :
Good Food and Staff, but...

Food: 5 Stars-above average for an all-inclusive.Staff: 5 Stars - All great.Location: 5 Stars - very goodBeach: 4 Stars - very nice but a little crowded at timesPools: 3 Stars - a little crowded and too many drunk people.Room: 1 Star - Terrible! Faulty air conditioner that made it impossible to dry anything. I slept in a bed that felt damp for 7 nights. Clothes always felt wet. I complained but it never was repaired. The decor was very tired and in need of a serious update and renovation.

Not Very Impressed

The report was rather small, however you do access to the sister property RIU Aruba. The villas are extremely nice with access to a private pool. There are approximately 5 Bali beds that you do not have to fight for or get up early in the morning to reserve. Pros:The food was amazingThe villa section is the bestThe beach is to die forGood drinksClose to shopping and nightlifeRoom stocked with liquorCons:Very small resortNot very many activitiesBars close rather early; place is dead after 11No waiter/waitress for villa sectionBartenders not very friendlyFood in 24 hour snack bar has horrible optionsNo sports bar
