    I cleaned it up for you

    the Riu Antilles apparently is a work in progress

    do do not let that property act as a reflection on aruba or the other resorts.

    Being on on the island the same time you were, I can tell you that the winds were not the norm!

    glad that you had some great times there too

    thank you for sharing your story.

    Sounds like an amazing time despite not loving the Riu. Thankfully there are so many amazing properties on Aruba! Thanks for sharing your report!

    In spite of a series of problems, it sounds like you were still able to enjoy Aruba. Sorry you had the problems you did. As for not staying at the Riu, I don't blame you. The one and only time we went there and were unceremoniously thrown out for trying to get a look at the resort, I vowed I would never step foot there again, and I haven't. Staff was arrogant and downright rude, when we explained that we were merely trying to check out the resort we were treated like crap. It was quite a surprise to us as everyone else was so friendly. Thanks for sharing with us, I'm anxious to see your pictures.

    Thanks for the honest review. It really is helpful to hear the good AND not so good.
