Riu Palace Antillas
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Stayed here between 9th and 23rd May 2017 for our Silver Wedding Anniversary. Was very surprised how busy the hotel was for the time of year.Rooms are spacious but could do with some tender loving care as could the rest of the hotel as it is getting on a bit.The pool is lovely and just the job to cool you down after spending time in the hot Aruban sun. The beach is beautiful, very clean and the sea is sparklingly clear. Aruba can get windy so prepare to get sand blasted at times.There are four al a carte restaurants here. The busiest being Palm Beach Steak house and Krystal. As there is no reservation system, it is first come first served. The longest queue is for the steak house. If you arrive much later than 5:50pm for the 6:30pm sitting you will be out of luck. Krystal was my favourite restaurant but again, arrive early for the first sitting. The steak was much better in Krystal in my opinion. The other two restaurants are an Italian and an Aruban. If you miss out on the restaurants the buffet is well stocked with plenty of choice of hot and cold food. You also go to the buffet for breakfasts which I must say are delicious.The bars are great, well stocked with premium spirits and beers at no extra cost. The lobby bar can get very busy around dinner time.The staff at this hotel are all friendly and always smiling.I would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel.Aruba certainly is "one happy island"
Great experience at the Riu Palace Antillas (adults only). Accomodations, while not like your typical Riu Palace, were nice, food was great and plentiful, and the view was spectacular. Highly recommend this hotel
Loved all aspects of the RIU Palace Antillas. The beautiful resort and it's beach, cleanliness of rooms, lovely buffet/speciality food and most of all the absolutely super staff throughout the hotel were exceptionally hard to beat. A great hotel from their people to serve you across the resort, buffet restaurant for all,l plus the speciality restaurants were all simply delicious. Cannot wait to return..........and now .booked for 2 weeks October 2017
Just returned from two weeks at this hotel i will start with the location absolutely stunning hotel is right on the beach with easy access. Beach is beautifully clean with crystal clear turquoise water. Lots of sunbeds and plenty of water sports available.You aren't supposed to reserve the beds but everyone did I used to walk along the beach every morning around 6.20 and nearly every bed had a towel on it apart from that I echo what's been said regarding the rooms they are very dated but spotlessly clean.Cleaners in every day and bed changed daily even a towel change and turndown service every evening if required.Every single member of staff is pleasant and very friendly and nothing is to much trouble.Food is amazing best we have ever had in an all inclusive.Dont let the negative reviews put you off this is a lovely hotel with alot going for it.We would return in a heartbeat. Aruba one happy Island.!Me one happy customer.!
Stayed April 2015! Hotel was wonderful. Rooms need updating, other than that we had no complaints! Food & drinks were amazing...beach was simply beautiful. The staff are exceptional...they go out of their way to please. Aruba by far is my favorite Caribbean destination...the "Happy" people make this island the best that it is! Cannot wait to return to Riu in June 2017!
