Fodor's Expert Review Riu Palace Antillas

J. E. Irausquin Blvd. 77, Palm Beach, n/a Aruba, Aruba

Riu bought this property, formerly the Westin Hotel, in 2014, right next door to its other Palm Beach family-friendly all-inclusive Riu Palace. But this one is rare for Aruba: an adults-only all-inclusive, though more are planned in the future. The tower structure is not a typical Riu design, but sea views from most rooms are great, and the Westin’s original pool area and water circuit is extensive. A bonus is that guests at the adults-only can also avail themselves of all the facilities next door at the sister resort, giving them far more choices of dining, entertainment, and activities. And it also has its own nightclub.

PROS

  • Adults only (18+, and 21+ during spring break season)
  • 24/7 all-inclusive room service
  • free Wi-Fi

CONS

  • not all rooms have a sea view
  • beach right next door to busy family RIU
  • vibe can feel impersonal
