Hotel Riu Palace Aruba Hotel Review: Resembling a vast sand castle and towering above a warm beach cove in Aruba, this all-inclusive resort welcomes the waves of the Caribbean that splash at its door. 450 guest rooms provide ocean and island terrace views, and are equipped with wireless Internet and satellite TV. Two large swimming pools are bordered by complimentary loungers and parasols for relaxing, while a Jacuzzi, sauna, fitness center and sun terrace appropriately complete the scenery. A long menu of body treatments and massages are offered at the Vita Novus Spa, and gamblers can easily indulge in the on-site casino. Four restaurants offer diverse cuisine from American steakhouse to Japanese or Italian; several bars are scattered throughout the hotel as well. For some aquatic fun, assorted water sports are available through the hotel.
