    Dress code @ Riu Palace

    Just curious what the men/women dress code is for the a la carte restaurants at the Riu Palace?? I don't want to pack things that I don't need.
    Thanks

    When we're there I always wear long pants and flip flops. I think they just care that you aren't wearing shorts (if you're a guy). Women can absolutely wear sandals.

    Just a follow-up question....the only place in ArubaI knew to require men to wear long slacks was Chez Mathilde, so I always boycotted them (couldn't understand why the rest of my family (wife, daughters) could basically wear what they wanted while I could not. BTW, they're out of business now.

    Are slacks really a REQUIREMENT at the Riu, or just a recommendation?

    yes a requirement of long trousers at the riu a lacarte restaurants at riu palace.
    if i am not mistaken, the same at the occidental a lacarte
    (before the spelling police send me a pm, i admit i do not know the spelling )


    our first time at chez mathilde, a tie was also required.
    that was way back when we stopped in aruba on a cruise and paul had a tie with him.

    imo
    docker or bermuda shorts are a good choice for me in all of the restaurants and a sun dress, culottes/skort or a short set are appropriate wear for women.

    Well....just another reason for me, (personally) to avoid the Riu!

    Andrea....I agree with what you said was a good choice for men on the island. I wear dockers shorts on the airplane and pack only tee shirts, polo shirts, shorts, swimsuits, sandals and, of course, underwear in my suitcase.

    IMO...I find it unfortunate that an establishment would allow women to wear shorts, but not men.
