What's to Love

Occidental Grand Aruba has lots of activities the whole family will enjoy and it's close to the vibrant life of Aruba.


What We'd Change

The pool isn't quite as big as we'd like, but the free form beauty and swim-up Splash Bar more than make up for it.


Why You Should Go

Aruba is one the prettiest islands in the Caribbean, with white sand beaches, sparkling blue water, lots of family-friendly activities and great restaurants.
