    RIU Aruba…. Seek a better place.

    Place is ok. A bit old and sterile. 2nd night at trying to get into a restaurant but it seems they have reserved a party for 30-50 without telling anyone. IMO, I would suggest that people go elsewhere. There are better places and avoid an all inclusive. We did it just because we anted to be lazy this holiday. Avoid this place folks. Until they get their act together. Trust me on this. Not being over dramatic….its just annoying and you don’t need annoying when you are trying to get away annoying. Lmao.

    Mother/Son Vacation

    The hotel was always clean and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The food and drinks are great. The only complaint is because its an all Adult resort, I would think there would be more entertainment. The entertainment was very bland and no music playing at the pool.

    Great Experience - Riu Antillas _ Adult Only

    Great Experience and the food was wonderful. Staff were friendly and we had the oceanside view. Yes, you have to get on the beach early to obtain a premium location (6:30am or earlier). Shops are close by and walking distance and the evening entertainment at both locations were great. Get the massage it is well worth it!!

    By far the worst

    I want to preface this review by saying that I am well traveled when it comes to tropical destinations. So white sand and blue water aren’t enough to bypass what seems to be a cultural issue in Aruba. On arrival I thought maybe the rudeness, passive racist, and entitled nature of the airport staff was just limited to them. It was a surprise when we arrived at the RIU Palace Antilles to see this same attitude! I am someone who observes and gives everyone the benefit of doubt before forming an opinion especially when it concerns race! This isn’t a country that you would think has the typical racial elements of white vs black. In this case I could see the blatant difference in treatment and prioritizing of white guests over black guests. It was astonishing to see third world workers at a resort be snobby as if they felt a level of hierchy lol. These people who depend on tourist to literally live! Nonetheless I decided to make the best of it and ignore ignorance! The food was trash as were the drinks. We had to leave an all inclusive resort just to get decent food and drinks. My wife is a vegetarian so if you are vegan or vegetarian you won’t have many options at all outside of fruit and the same romaine lettuce and salad components smh. I think we would be able to stomach some of the shortcomings with the food if the property was up to date. They have an eye soar of construction going on next door and the rooms aren’t cleaned well. Housekeeping request are terrible. You literally have to request a blanket for your bed and even though our stay was 4 days they didn’t even have the common sense to have more than 2 bath towels and wash cloths. We had to call multiple times and wait sometimes hours to get toilet paper and extra towels. This by far was the worst experience. Pools and restaurants are crowded so good luck getting reservations at a decent time. They don’t even have a system in place for day passes for friends who may want to stay the day on a Friday. Yes a Friday lol! I don’t even write reviews and just wanted people who look like me to not even give this racist, unprofessional, entitled, and disgusting piece of island and its properties your hard earned money. This trip was booked before I looked at reviews so you will see similar sentiments about this property and island! There is a serious culture issue on this island and specifically this property. I’ll honestly say everyone I come in contact with I will tell them to think twice about Aruba but certainly never to stay at this resort.
