Featured Reviews: 

"Our day at RIU Palace Antillas was great. We were able to sit in the shade and enjoy the breeze. We had some drinks and ate 2 meals. Everything was clean and staff friendly. Stayed about 9 hours!" - August, 22, 2019

"We stopped in Aruba on our cruise and knew that the beaches were beautiful so decided upon the Resort for a Day at Riu Palace Antillas! We had a wonderful experience at this beautiful resort, from the moment we checked into until we left. All inclusive - food, drinks, towels, pool and beach chairs. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect resort day. We will definitely return here for an all inclusive beach vacation one day!" - Mary, November 6, 2018


"Thank you RIU Palace Antillas, we had the most wonderful time at your resort. We we're welcomed to the resort and enjoyed the most enjoyable day relaxing in your pools, on your beach and eating delicious food. The resort is beautiful, very clean & everyone was super friendly. From check-in to check out we had a blast. I loved the water Zumba classes. We have already discussed the possibility of coming back for another visit, possibly even for a week or more, especially since we heard you may be updating the guest rooms soon." - Lisa, November 1, 2018


"The RIU Palace Antillas is a fabulous place to spend the day away from our cruise ship. The price is fair for all your food AND drinks and the resort is beautiful and clean. The beach is the quintessential Caribbean beach. I hope to go back one day soon for a week! Loved it!!" - Linda, September 29, 2018


"We had a truly fabulous time at RIU. I highly recommend this resort. The layout is wonderful, with grass umbrellas, beach chairs, and a beautiful, big, clean pool, with built-in tile chaise lounges and swim-up bar. This was worth the splurge. I only wish that it had been less windy! Otherwise, simply perfect!" - Marcia, May 10, 2019
