What We Love
- Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort and Casino is definitely the place for an affordable, upscale experience.
- It offers so many great activities for the kids. The whole family will love this resort!
Things to Know
- With lush tropical landscape, a beautiful pool and a gorgeous beach, this place is sheer heaven.
- The resort is close to shopping, dining and entertainment.
After a swanky new renovation in 2016, this Arubian oasis is filled with waterfalls, lagoons, lush landscaping (24,000 sq ft of outdoor space!) and prime beachfront loungers on Aruba's most popular spot - Palm Beach. The warm, gentle waters along Aruba's coast make it so refreshing to dive into, and this tropical resort also has two glistening pools, where cocktails are just a few flip flop steps away. Plus, you've got all the amenities you've come to expect from Hilton - a modern fitness center, Wi-Fi access and a Kids Club so you can book a beachfront massage while the kids build a castle or two. This is all kinds of beachy bliss for you and the family.

BEST PLACE EVER
Aruba is the best place in the entire world. Being that I’m the daughter of a travel agent, I was spoiled with vacations my whole life and visited so many beautiful places in the world. Some people ask me where my favorite place and I couldn’t say Aruba any faster. Aruba is mine and my families happy place. I’ve visited over 20 times and each time I fall more and more in love and obsessed with it. I’ve stayed many places in Aruba, but my home away from home is the Hilton (former Radisson). All the employees are amazing, the rooms are clean and the hotel is in the best location. 20/10 times I will recommend this place- never ever seems to disappoint! Counting down the seconds until I am back in that beautiful place!
Beautiful hotel, great location, friendly staff
My husband and I stayed at Hilton Aruba in February 2020, and had the best time. The hotel grounds/pool/beach area are very well maintained, and the staff was always very friendly and helpful. There are a couple of beach bars/restaurants that border the beach on the resort grounds that offer a shady place to get out of the sun with happy hour specials daily, live music, and great apps for a quick reprieve from the beach. We traveled as a couple, but this resort is kid friendly, and I would feel very comfortable staying here with young kids. For a fee ($35-50), you can reserve a beach palapa ahead of your stay via the beach reservation site. We did this for 2 days of our trip to guarantee a palapa closest to the ocean with an unobstructed view. Money well spent! The beach in front of the resort is not overwhelmingly busy, and sand and water are beautiful. The Pier next to the resort is a great place to grab fresh fish for lunch/drinks, and does not hinder the view. In the evenings, they have great live music. You can usually find a beach palapa for free in the early evening as it gets closer to dinner time when the beach clears out. At 4pm, you can reserve unclaimed palapas for the following day for free at the reservation/towel hut near the pool. You won’t get one in the first couple of rows, so the view will be obstructed, but you’ll still have a great spot on the beach with shade. The hotel itself has been recently updated, and the common areas and rooms are well maintained. We had an ocean view room right above the lobby, and didn’t have much of a view as it was quite a ways from the beach. We were on the 5th floor and could watch sunset (which most of the time is hazy from constant winds), but couldn’t see much ocean as the room sat back quite a ways from the water. If you plan to be in your room a lot, make sure to get a high floor (lots of palm trees near the pool/beach obstruct ocean views from lower floors) that is furthest from the lobby/closest to ocean. Honestly, in terms of ocean views from your room, there are better resort options on this beach. We didn’t spend near as much time in our room as we thought we might - weather is consistently gorgeous - although very windy - and we were outside sun up to sun down. At this hotel, depending on room location, I would say it isn’t truly necessary to upgrade to an ocean view as the pool/garden views are beautiful, and this resort has one of the best pools on this strip of resorts. Location! Hilton Aruba has the very best location. It’s situated right near one end of the high rise hotel area (RIU next door is the end), so is great for walking the beach between Hilton and the Ritz at the other end maybe 1 mile down the beach. (On a side note, there is a paved sidewalk on the BEACH side of the resorts in this area for those who may need more firm ground to walk that runs the length of the hotels. Also many beach bars/restaurants/shops right along this sidewalk). The road behind has a low speed limit, large sidewalks, and excellent restaurants all within 1/2 mile from the hotel - no need whatsoever to rent a car! The food scene here is phenomenal, and there is no reason whatsoever to do an All-Inclusive. Location is a huge perk of staying at Hilton as the resorts on the other end of high rise area don’t have near as great of access on street side to sidewalks and restaurants. There are lots of options for dining/cocktails/live music/ice cream all just steps away. Another perk is the Red Sail Sports desk right on site to book any catamaran/snorkeling tours. This entire area of Aruba felt very safe, and we were very comfortable walking around at night. Streets are well lit, and lots of people out and about. We even enjoyed a couple of nights walking on the beach after dark as the hotels and beach restaurants shine plenty of light onto the beach to be comfortable walking after dark. Overall, we had an amazing trip, and would definitely stay at Hilton Aruba again. Can’t wait to come back!🌴
Fantastic Hotel on Palm Beach
We went here for our Babymoon in December of 2019 and we really liked the Hilton at Palm Beach. Highlights were the daily Palapa rentals (make sure you reserve in advance, otherwise you can line up at the towel stand at 4:00 pm daily to reserve one for free for the next day), the water on the beach directly in front of the hotel is clear and warm, the happy hour at lobby bar from 2-4, then 6-8, and our suite was amazing. We got automatically upgraded to a suite after booking an Ocean View room and it was humungous - 2 bathrooms, a dining room, living room, and a kitchen. Overall, the service was great at the hotel and we really liked the big resort feel of this - felt very similar to a large resort in Hawaii. Also, great proximity to excellent shops and restaurants nearby - Gianni’s was great for Italian food and gelato (right next door), and Lola Taqueria was great for Mexican food. Also, if you have a car - it’s a short drive to Bob’s pizza which is excellent! A good break from resort food. Also, if you do have a car - it’s a quick drive to Arashi Beach, which is in our opinion, the best beach on Aruba. We went to Eforea spa - i absolutely loved my massage (the best massage I’ve ever gotten) but my wife did not like hers at all. The masseuse for her was very gentle, after she asked her to be more firm several times. She was doing a prenatal massage so that could be why, but she was disappointed and wouldn’t go back.
Stunning scenery and perfect weather!
I’d you want stunning scenery and perfect weather for your winter get away, I would highly recommend the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort. We had a wonderful holiday at this beautiful resort. Gorgeous beach, clear warm water and lovely grounds, the Hilton has it all.
Our Home Away from Home
We love the Hilton Aruba! From the moment that we step out of the cab to hugs and welcome homes from the bell staff, we are well taken care of. Violet and the housekeeping staff in the Bonaire make sure that our room is perfect and that we have everything that we need. Jantze, Harold, and Rafi tend to our every need at the pool. The staff at Laguna, Gilligan's, and Sunset Grill make sure that we are well fed and very well taken care of--one happy island! The concierge and front desk staffs take care of every need. The GM and the other managers are very much in evidence, checking on everything and making sure that the guests are satisfied. The executive chef is always around as well, even leading tours of the kitchen! The casino staff is amazing as well. We can't wait to get back. Meanwhile, dear friends, stay safe, stay well. God willing, we will see you in May!
