Very nice hotel on the beach.

Posted Aug 27, 2015
Pros: Close to the beach. Great access to taxi service.
Cons: Longer beach towel return hours please.
Location: Great location on the beach! Great beaches and activities. Delicious food in restaurants and room service. In the middle of the busy district.
We had never stayed in the hotel and arrived just after the name change. There was an easy check-in with polite and attentive staff. The room was lovely even though we expected a clearer view of the ocean. Overall, an excellent stay and visit to Aruba!

Nice Hotel with beautiful grounds and beach

Posted Aug 27, 2015
When we arrived in Aruba we were informed that the Raddison Hotel was taken over by the Hilton just two weeks ago! I wasn't sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised that we received the same great service as we had in the past ! The hotel was clean and service was wonderful. Everyone was friendly and helpful!!! They were painting while we were there so I can't wait to see all the new renovations :)

Nice hotel

Posted Aug 26, 2015
Had a great time at this resort, the hotel staff was very good, the casino staff very rude! Guessing they didn't like my money, go down the street to the Marriot casino much better place, food at resort was also over priced

Great location, great vibe

Posted Aug 19, 2015
Pros: Staff, location and casual feeling
Cons: Sprucing up but they are doing that now
The Radisson was bought by Hilton. We were not informed of this before leaving the U.S. so were quite surprised when we arrived. Fortunately, Hilton kept on the same staff...we recognized many of our favorite waiters and bartenders. They are going through a transitions so there was some painting and whatnot going on. Other than that, the property is still our favorite. It is close to the shops and restaurants of Palm Beach. It is much more relaxed than the Marriott and it is close to the pier which is amazing.

Working in Aruba

Posted Aug 19, 2015
I'm an international cinematographer and was hired to film a Wedding in Aruba. It's MY island. I go every year. I've been going for over 40 years. Even though the wedding was not at the Hiltion (which has always been the Radisson to me) I chose to stay there as I usually do every year. I love everything about this hotel. The facilities. The staff. Check in. The pool. The spa. I will say that the hotel is starting to feel very tired and is in need of a MAJOR renovation. Things are old, not working, breaking down. I hope they will now renovate seeing that it's now a Hilton. I'm sure they will. I will gladly be back.

Beautiful location..however, needs lots of TLC

Posted Aug 19, 2015
My boyfriend recommended this hotel because he's stayed there before about 8 years ago & loved it, but when we came this year, he said it looked exactly the same. He was sold on the location of the hotel which is perfect. You have the pier right there with Dunkin Donuts & you can walk to all of the action. This hotel just got taken over by Hilton & hopefully they'll be doing some renovating considering the condition of this hotel. All the other hotels like the Hyatt or Marriot are updated. I would definitely stay there again because of where it is on the beach.

Nice room, awful shaded lounger situation

Posted Aug 15, 2015
Pros: The room. Once we were moved from a room with a door to an adjoining room. Where we heard every word of the conversation conducted in an indoor voice
Cons: Stop the insane reservation of loungers.
Location: If you enjoy vacationing with extended family, where guests are pretty much all Americans from New York/ New Jersey area, go with God.
You have to reserve your beach loungers the day before. The line starts to form an hour before, at 3pm. They start taking reservations at 4 o'clock. I checked with people in neighboring hotels and they could just show up and take whatever beach lounger was free, like civilized people. Too, the loungers by the pools had to be paid for. PAID FOR. If any were not reserved you were free to take them at 2pm. There were never any free in the shade though. Although their 'owners' were rarely using them, just their towels proclaiming they were taken. The staff were very solicitous. The room very comfortable. But ultimately we were there for a beach vacation. It was not very restful except when we went back to the room. Beach loungers were crammed into the Hilton's beach area, within easy hearing of conversations, smelling of cigarettes, and 'enjoyment' of others' music. Might have had a more laid back vacation at the Jersey Shore. This is not a great set-up unless you are going to be inebriated and loudly socializing with a group of your family/friends. These large groups seemed to be enjoying themselves, unlike the rest of us forced to suffer them. There was nowhere to move. If you're not part of a large loud group I wouldn't recommend it.

Location location

Posted Aug 11, 2015
I liked the hotel overall, staff was very friendly rooms were called up to my standards. I love the fact that all of the restaurant's and shopping stores are walking distance from the hotel no need to take a taxi everyday. The beach was beautiful and very clean I would recommend this hotel. I only wish that they have at lease a free continental breakfast paying $22 for just breakfast morning is a little steep. Also the beds are a little on the hard side not very comfortable!!#
