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.
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.
