Riu Palace Aruba Palm Beach Reviews
Don't let the appearance seduce you. Dec 17, 2011
The hotel was recently renovated. I spent the New years eve there with my mother. It was 2008 / 2009. They have a '' all included '' service which can be annoying sometimes because you have to wake up really early if you want to book one of the available restaurants in the hotel.
The rooms are fine. Spacious but nothing special I would say.
The swimming pool is big and good, with a bar in it.
There is a nice spa and a small gym by the swimming pool.
The beach is always full and people are always going really early there and leaving their towels on the table to save it for later. Really stupid situation because the hotel itself should care about it. I imagine we are not on holidays to care about this silly situations.
I would recommend another hotel on the same bay, like Hyatt. It is a little bit more expensive but truly worth the price. Let's face it. You are in such a nice island and it is not a good idea to get annoyed by these sort of things.
