Help on RIU palace?

My girlfriend and I are staying at RIU Plaza on Palm Beach on 13th June for a week.

I am just wondering if anybody knows what sort of entertainment there is on a the hotel?

Could you also please advise what food is available and what beer is available at the resort?

And any idea how much a taxi into Oranjestad would cost would be great? And if there are any local bus stops that can take us there?

Many Thanks.

My husband and i have stayed here twice. The entertainment is slacking a bit, they have nightly shows some are ok and some are not very good. We never watched any of the shows, we always venture off the resort at night. The food is good. Fresh fruits, eggs, juice and your usual breakfast items. Lunch is mainly burgers, fries, salad, chicken, fruit, ice cream, veggies. Dinner, the have 4 reservation only. Itilian, steak house, gourmet, Japeneise. We only at at the 3 reservation (not the Japeneise) and the buffet. They were all good. The buffet had either a theme night (Mexican, etc.) or made to order station, chicken, sea food, veggies, fruit, salad, fries, Mac and cheese, dessert.....awesome and LOTS more. No problem making reservations. The only beer the serve is the Aruban beer Balishi. My husband didn't like it, so we went to another bar or to the store to purchase bud light or corona's. They have room service 24 hours, is very limited, but good for a snack at midnight or between meals. Hope this helps.

We are also going 13/06/11 to the RUI for a week, I am hoping it has the same format as other Rui hotels we were at Rui Montego bay Jamaica in December 2010. We had a great stay there food/service/entertainment all good. Not been to Aruba before so looking forward to it. Like yourselves we also like to get out and about and see the country we are in.
