    hotels in highrise

    starting with the Hyatt, where is the Riu??? I tried looking on the map in the section on top that says "explore aruba" but it listed on the map all hotels but not the Riu. so if you were at the hyatt going towards the lowrise, what's the order of the hotels. I'm so confused, lol....

    The Riu is 3 hotels down from the Hyatt - between the Radisson and Westin.

    andrea something is wrong, when you put a check in the box for accomodations and then zoom in on the map to see where the hotels are listed there isnt an "AC" tab for the Riu.

    Map centered on the Radisson
    http://www.wikimapia.org/#lat=12.568...5&z=17&l=0&m=b
    Occidental and then Hyatt to the North of the Radisson
    Riu and Westin south of the Riu


    Most if not all resorts are labeled.
    You can zoom in and zoom out.
    Mouseover and drag on menu to move to a different part of the island

    ...........and the RIU cannot be missed. it looks like a huge mega monstrosity that to some looks very TAJ MAHAL-like and to some looks very out of place.
    but, whatever your opinion of the looks of the RIU, one will never be able to say, "gee i did not notice it"
