yes the Riu has a few timeshares.
years ago when the Riu was the Aruba Grand and before that......I forget the name........there were timeshares added in.
there may have been 25 or more timeshare units.

the timeshares have remained, even though the Riu is an all inclusive hotel property and to the best of my knowledge the all inclusive is an option and not mandatory for timeshare unit users.

i do think that those many of those timeshares are beachfront.

This page is good resource for Riu timeshare info. There aren't any reviews but there is a blog. This is a site I use to search for rentals but there is a lot of good general information that may help put your mind at ease.

I was looking at that today, too. My hubby exchanged into there for New Year's week a few weeks ago. I went on today and was surprised that it is an unrated resort in II. I couldn't find much other than things are better because they remodeled in 2017.

It seems the number one complaint about this timeshare is mold and musty odor. However, 1 poster on red week mentioned he was assigned a newly renovated room and had no issues. I think perhaps this is similar to the reviews I read about the Tropicana Resort. The negative posts were by people who stayed in the old rooms and the positive reviews were by people who stayed in the new rooms. In the old rooms people complaint about musty odor as well at Tropicana.

I hope you get a new renovated room or perhaps request one if you find you don't like your room or maybe email them before your trip. Also perhaps bring some air freshener to spray the room. I just stood in a very small hotel and the cleaning staff were wonderful. When I would come back from the beach everyday, the room had a nice smell to it because they would spray after they finish cleaning with like a fabreeze or something.

Good luck and please tell us about your experience there..
