Hotel Riu Palace Aruba Hotel Review: Boasting an updated look and new features following a $25 million renovation in 2015, the Hotel Riu Palace Aruba caters to every whim with an all-inclusive menu of services. Perched on a white sand beach overlooking the sparkling Caribbean waters, this upscale hotel anticipates guests’ needs around the clock, making sure visitors want for nothing during their stays. Indeed, the property includes enviable features such as two fresh-water pools (one with a connecting Jacuzzi), an on-site casino, a luxurious sun terrace, a golf course, a modern fitness facility and sauna. A variety of water recreation, nearby national parks, cave systems and the Dutch-style Oranjestaad market also beg for exploration. The 450 soothing guest rooms and suites are all furnished with mini-bars, free Wi-Fi and turndown service. On-site dining options span a selection of global cuisine. Meanwhile, the hotel’s Renova Spa delivers a full range of massages, facials, body treatments and salon services to keep guests looking as good as they feel.
