Positive Reviews

Caribbean luxury

Guests who've stayed at the hotel love the relaxing, luxurious atmosphere which has been greatly helped by the recent refurbishment. Rooms and communal areas are kept spotless by staff with guests loving the traditional yet modern Caribbean decor.

Location is everything

The location of this hotel gets great feedback from guests - just a short walk away is the Palm Beach area, offering water sports and relaxation in the day, and bars and restaurants at night.

Stellar service from the staff

Staff who work at the hotel offer a certain Caribbean charm and are friendly and helpful towards guests, who felt that the staff alone would entice them to return to the Riu Palace Aruba.

Negative Reviews

Entertainment not aimed at English-speakers

Some guests have advised that the hotel's entertainment shows on an evening are repetitive and the announcements are made in Dutch and Spanish, making it difficult for English speakers. That said, Palm Beach is just a short walk away if you wish to experience more exciting nightlife upon your visit to Aruba.

Wi-Fi leaves a lot to be desired

Wi-Fi is offered for free throughout the complex however some guests have complained that the connection at busy times or in certain areas is poor.

Gone with the wind

Although not controllable by the hotel, some guests have commented that the island is particularly windy at certain times of the year. Due to the layout of the hotel, this wind is felt mostly around the pool area which can make it difficult to relax.
