Spanish hotel giant Riu Resorts is one of the leading all-inclusive brands in the Caribbean, from adults-only resorts to family-friendly properties. And its footprint in the region may be even larger than you think — from Aruba to the Bahamas to Jamaica and even the far edges of the Caribbean Basin in Panama. So how do you choose? We have you covered, with five resorts to think about for your next all-inclusive getaway, whether you’re just heading for an adults-only vacation or taking along everyone. Here are some Riu resorts to start thinking about for your next Caribbean journey.
Riu Palace Aruba If you’re planning an all-inclusive trip to Aruba, this imposing resort on Palm Beach needs to be at the top of your list, with more than 400 rooms on one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. And yes, all the standards are here: the minibars, the beverage dispensers, the pools and the 24-hour service. That’s along with five restaurants (including a great Japanese eatery). (If you’re looking for Aruba for adults-only, try the company’s other Aruba property, the Riu Palace Antillas).
