Riu in Aruba

Jump to last reply

Going to Aruba for the first time in early June...currently booked at the Riu....reading many negative reviews. Is there anyone that has been to the Riu, returned to Aruba and stayed elsewhere? And if so, was it a better choice?
I am definitely ok with the Riu not being a perfect place, I just want to make sure it will be worth my money. I keep hearing how hard the beds are, the smell of old, mildew rooms, the frustration of getting a hut by the ocean (unless you are up by 7:00 am), the same with a chair by the pool, long line to get reservations for dinner (and sometimes being told the 6:30 slot is full), food just ok, etc. Would love a person that can give me a comparison. Thanks.
