I've already commented on this hotel, one of the worst experiences we have come across in any leisure trip before. Don't believe any of the good reviews, this place is horrible.

Absolutely the worst place I've stayed in an All inclusive. My friend and I were on our very first trip to Aruba for a week of relaxation and fun. Don't be fooled by any reviews that say otherwise, this place is a dump! Rooms have little to no air conditioning, black mold growing everywhere. Drinks are watered down with cheap ingredients, food available looked like it was sitting out for days. We had to move to another hotel and lose our money to enjoy ourselves, it was miserable until then. BELIEVE ME..unless you are used to third world accommodations, this place is not worth the money...try another location!!

The grounds were well kept. The music was loud and directly below the rooms. The locker storage place on the beach the guy was rolling joints and smoking everyday and night.

The music at the pool could have been better, and louder. On cruises, they always start with the various slide dances to warm people up, and to get the party started.

Riu property in Aruba different from their properties in other countries. Was in cabo in Dec it was a much different experience. More entertainment, bars, and eatery all hours. Although it was families there the resort didnt make it seem like it was totally geared to families. There was things to do for all ages. I think this property should maybe adapt some of Cabo's ideas.

There was really nothing to do other than drink. There was no entertainment other than instructed poolside exercise. I'm glad it was just my husband and I, there was no privacy/door for the shower area, tou could see right through. Our room didn't get cleaned until about 4pm. We paid for a partial ocean view with a balcony with chairs. We received a pool view with a giant tree blocking half of it, with just a stand outside balcony. Our bed only had 3 pillows on a king and two sheets on top, no blanket or bed spread. No clock, no laundry service and our safe fritzed on us. The food was repetitive daily.
