Riu Palace Antillas
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The hotel and grounds were Beautiful and clean. All the employees were very nice and friendly. The food was a huge disappointment. Breakfast was OK. The snack bar is kind of a joke, The consistency of bad food at a 7-Eleven. None of the restaurants you needed a reservation for it was worth it. The Aruban restaurant was the most disgusting meal I've had on a vacation. The casino is OK if you want to gamble. The beach area fills up quickly, so you must show up early to get a chair. Be advised, the beach is so windy when the sand hits you it stings, and it was basically a miserable experience to lay out under the sun. The local town is nice and we went during Carnaval, and that was fun to see the parade. The airport has US customs which is basically the only good part about the trip. It's only worth going there if you want to say you have been to Aruba, other than that it is a waste of money. We will not be returning.
We stayed in Riu Palace Antilla, which is for adults only. The beach was good, busy, but good. One thing we discovered is that we are allowed to go to the buffet restaurant in Riu Palace Aruba, which is next door, They have more choices. The food at the buffet was good. Lots of fresh fruits. We enjoyed the two soup they had every night. The room was okay. We had a ocean view room, The shower needs some update. Everything looks pretty dated, The bed was not very comfortable, they have real small pillows for a king size bed. The staff was okay, helpful, but not as friendly as the staff of some other hotels we stayed. The waiters and waitress in the restaurants are more friendly than the hotel staff. Overall, I don't think this hotel is worth of the money we spent.
We really liked this resort. The food was some of the best we've had while traveling. The service was also excellent and the staff was exceptionally friendly. The rooms were ok but not great. Only real complaints are that the beach is public so it gets crowded and the bartenders were very inconsistent. Our favorite bartender was Jonathan. His drinks were the best and he had a great attitude. We also had the pleasure of having Astrid as our waitress several times throughout the week. She was so friendly and did everything thing she could to make our experience wonderful.
I was a little nervous about booking here but wanted an adults only all inclusive which aren't easy to come by. There was nothing to be nervous about! We had a fabulous 9 days at this resort. Everyone was so friendly and although our safe did not work, all it took was a call and someone was at the door within minutes to fix it. The food was good with a wide variety of selections. The drinks at the swim up bar were good and I didn't think they were weak at all. The bartenders were attentive and fun. The pool areas and beach were beautiful and well maintained. I would highly recommend this hotel. We can't wait to go back!! 2 tips that I took from other reviews...towel clips and bring or buy drink cups there.
If you want a care free nice vacation, this is a great choice. The staff was excellent and very attentive to every need. The the entire place was incredibly clean and well maintained. Although the rooms were somewhat dated, it was not a distraction. The food was good considering it is an all inclusive. My one small complaint was for the entire week I was there, I was unable to get a table at their steak house restaurant.
