I stayed at the RIU Aruba in May and it is a beautiful resort perfect location. Beach is amazing and hotel well they need to renovate the rooms but always clean and fresh towels other then that everything else was good.
I do recommend you bring your own mugs for drinks as the little cups they use will have you walking back to the pool bar quite a bit and the staff has no problem refilling your mugs. Beach chairs we got up everyday at 6am to reserve our own which we didn't mind otherwise you will be out of luck as it gets really packed and no chairs left.
The food was great always a great selection and I do recommend you try the resturants of the resort as the cuisine in Aruba is amazing and surprisingly not that expensive so it is reasonable. Not much of a nightlife there on property or off but its nice to walk into town and check the scene out.
We did our own Jeep tour which is worth it we rented the jeep for 125.00(full tank of gas) drove all over the island and they gave us a map of all the sites to visit so it was a great do it yourself tour. People are very friendly and overall it was agreat vaction.
