The Riu Aruba palace is enormous, i guess about 850 rooms, the all universe inclusive to be rented. Condition of the houses (main house and two side wing) spotless, well maintained and cleaned. In all guestrooms and the lobby is free wireless internet to receive. The guests are almost exclusively us-american and venezuelan. The few europeans english. Average age i would with 45 specify. Many young american couple, obviously as honeymoon. read hotel review
  • Service

    I found the staff to be more than extremely courteous and helpful. A complaint (broken lamp) was not only within a few minutes on a sunday done, but also from the front desk asked, whether everything was ok. Language: language english. Spanish is also very well, however no german, although curiously all the signs, menus in german. Room cleaning 2 times per day. It is also 2 times a day the towels were changed. Everything, which used looks, even hung up again, will be exchanged. Cleaning available in the house, bag is located in the closet under the tv.

  • Room
    5.0

    We had a standard room with a french balcony, size about 30 square meter with bathroom and dressing room (if the walk-in closet so want to call. Good condition of all equipment: 2 king size beds, each as a double bed can be used, seating area with table, chest of drawers and was a night table with telephone, radio, bedlight. Closet with tv (never turned on, ka what programmes) with drawers beneath. Minibar with refrigerator, coffee maker and so-called ' liquer -dispensers', four upright hanging 1 liter bottles Bacardi, smirnov, red label whisky and cognac, for free service. Bathroom (tub, also available as the shower) with toilet. Smallest french balcony, a person could stand on it to outside to smoke. Air conditioning with a good function. In the room hangs thermostat however, it is old and clamped. The system are-unfortunately only three days before our departure with a cleaning of the area through the staff noticed-behind the small metallklappe above, these can by pressing against ejoy. Cleanliness without criticism, it is 2 times daily cleaned. In the evening during the food is, the bed was turned down, the towels again changed and the trash emptied.

    4.0

    Sport: there was next to the pool a very well-equipped and visited fitness center (from 7a 19 hours). Eineindeutiges plus. Pool: i was never in it. Why? There are wonderful sea and beach a few steps away. At the pool often very loud animation, couches around close to each other, from the early morning reserved with towels. Children's swimming pool and kid's club available (not used). At the pool the pool bar, the care on the beach with disputes. It is there somewhat more frequently cleaned, the sticky floor from the many spilt drinks is in the afternoon often unpleasant. The same on the beach. There are also many beach chairs in good condition, they were always sufficient, however only very few parasols. These places are from 6 o'clock reserved in the morning. Curious because, very often emerges during the day no, it remains unused. Showers at the pool and on the beach. The beach is for a hotel of this size much too small! Everything is public, you can also in the neighbor hotel for swimming (where often it was empty is), but not their beach chairs and umbrellas to use

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    Main restaurant and 4 time à la carte (steakhouse, asian, italian and the krystal, the probably due to Nobel american to do). 5 bars located on the property, one at the pool/beach access. A 24 hour bar (sports bar in the main building, which also offers snacks eggshell). The quality of the food in the main restaurant was great. It was always fresh, one sees partly in preparation to. You can, of course, the american taste and it hot and greasy take (there are always burgers and fries ready), but it has a vast selection of salads, fruit, desserts and even amuse beech buffet. Sometimes there were theme evenings, otherwise, the menu repeated after a week. à la carte: always mornings 8-11 hours for the same night. It is not a problem, to get places! The steakhouse Nautilus makes in the evening delicious surf & turf, steak with crayfish, the italian chef but never was Italy, except for the starters has nothing to do. The asian is nice, but also badly. At the krystal we were not. All in all nice, but the main restaurant offers more. Atmosphere is typically american, with welcome and be-seated. Nicely set, but the drinks were partly (beer, Cola) canned drinks ☹ it must not be. The champagne to all meals is free, also for breakfast there were always bottle with orange juice mix to leave. Tips are gladly taken, the americans very much given, but the service has no direct impact, if you're not so.

  • Location
    4.0

    Direct beach location, distance to the airport by taxi (25 us $) about 20 minutes In Palm Beach, so the area the hochhaushotels, there is within walking distance of lots of other hotels, restaurants and a few shops. In the evening also ' amusierbetrieb ' on the other side of the town, on the highway. Otherwise there was nothing in the 'town' Excursions on the island: diagonally opposite, at the 'old dutch windmill' is a car rental from avis, the considerably cheaper than in the hotel (small car with avis with all kilometer, air conditioning and automatic 48 us$ Links to the public transport: the right and left of the hotel are a few meters farther bus stops. The bus to Oranjestad (capital) runs very frequently, about every 20-30 minutes. Often holds also a priv. Minibus at the station and take the same rate with (2 us $)

Dreamlike but loud Aruba

First, a briefly said: The price is a five star hotel not worthy and the price-performance ratio is also okay not. The air-conditioning devices the room are not rational to adjust. It is in the room silent, however the klimakühler in the courtyard 24 hours day full to hear. We had room to yard. The hotel is rather new but certainly not older than 10 years. It fits however not to the overall impression Food is essentially american customers -greasy, but varied. A casino in the hotel is certainly positively mentioned should be the on Aruba rather standard. read hotel review

    The food is the us american standard: fatty and rich. After about one week is also another fare from the nearby restaurants recommendable. Cleanliness and hygiene in the restaurant area is ok. In the hotel there is 2 restaurants to visit you have to sign up for. 2 more restaurants the almost any time to be able to receive visits.

    The hotel located directly at the Palm beach and thus fully at the sea. The beach is absolutely wonderful. Water is crystal clear and generally everything very clean. In addition nearly no waves and no current exists you can fully and concerns/free of fear to go swimming. The proximity to the capital Oranjestad is pleasant and by taxi to 11 Dollar to make. The bus costs etwa 2 Dollar and is recommendable. Right on the beach there are plenty of possibilities from jet ski up to bananaboot, as well as snorkel trips is to do all of that. Aruba is the water sports and diving possibilities great. By the size of the island are the possibilities the country was rather small.

    The bathroom is with effort than three stars standard to see with a bath and toilet whereby the two washbasin already in the room are installed. Cleanliness of the room is however ok.

  • Service

    On Aruba everyone speaks English and spanish. German was rather less represented. The staff are very friendly.

    2.0

    That is in our opinion completely insufficient. It was from o'clock until about 18 hours with a solid noise disturbance by the eternal animation to be expected. We wanted peace and the in the hotel clear not found. Those who seek peace and quiet is in the hotel guaranteed wrong hands. To the cleanliness there is to say, that the loungers area around the pool massive with expired drinks tape was the only poorly removed. On Aruba it rains then and when however cannot the dried layers of bargetränken release. The loungers and the mats are certainly not a 5 star standard-more building supplies store level.
