I'm planning a wedding in Aruba for 2009. I was reviewing hotels online and came across the Riu. It looks amazing!! Has anyone had a wedding there? if so, how were the accomdations and how was the ceremony?
Hi - I Just Returned From Aruba On Weds - Tried To Visit The Riu But The Security Guard Would Not Let Us In The Pool Area But Did Go In One Day. I Think It Is Very Bare - It Needs Some Tropical Planting Done. Alot Of Concrete And Not Very Pretty. It Seemed To Be Alot Of Younger Crowd - They Were Having A Beer Drinking Contest At The Pool. The Builidings Are Beatiful And At The Lobby Is Okay. There Was Mixed Comments On It About The Food.
