No distractions from quality family time at Riu Palace Aruba

ARUBA — While some clients want an adults-only getaway, others have family in tow. On Aruba, RIU Hotels & Resorts has all the options covered: Riu Palace Antillas for the adults-only crowd; and for families on vacation, Riu Palace Aruba.

And after a visit to Riu Palace Antillas, it’s easy to find Riu Palace Aruba – it’s right next door. Riu Palace Aruba is for guests of all ages, and there’s definitely no shortage of families hanging out and enjoying each other’s company while soaking up the sun’s rays.

Located directly on Palm Beach, Riu Palace Aruba is a five-star, 24-hour all-inclusive where families can engage in all sorts of fun together.

The hotel’s 450 rooms are served by two pools, one with an adjoining whirlpool bath, plus a kids’ pool. There’s plenty of games available for families to play together during the day, like ping pong, volleyball, puzzles and tabletop shuffleboard, or kids can run around at the children’s playground.

Kids can also spend time having fun at the onsite kids’ club. Picturesque Palm Beach is within steps where lounger chairs for guests are abundant. Also, those in need of pampering can visit the full-service spa or make an appointment at the hair salon, and there’s a gym for anyone who needs to get in a workout.

All five of Riu Palace Aruba’s restaurants offer delicious and varied food, and all are definitely a highlight of the property. There are plenty of options that kids will happily devour. Plus, everyone in the family will surely no doubt enjoy a visit to the ice cream parlour, and live cooking demos.

Daytime entertainment programs for children ages four to 12 are followed by shows and live music for all ages in the evening. Anyone who wants to catch the game can visit the on-site sports bar. The gardens at this property are also quite pretty, and kids will relish staying in the hotel that looks like a castle.

If parents need some time away from the kids, they can hire a babysitter from the resort and head next door to enjoy the adults-only Riu Palace Antillas, to which they have full access (aside from its à la carte restaurants).

Families looking for activities away from Riu Palace Aruba on this extremely safe island should consider visiting the California Lighthouse, the Old Dutch Windmill, Palm Island or Guillermo Prospero Trinidad Stadium for a game or event.
