Things to Know

  • Aruba is one of the friendliest islands in the Caribbean.
  • The resort is only 11 minutes from the airport. 
  • The resort is ideal for couples and families alike.

If you're ready to nestle in for a day filled with nothing but cool ocean breezes and soft sands on your toes, then finding a lounge chair along Aruba's famous Palm Beach is a must. And, this all-inclusive resort has a lounger with your name on it.

Want to bring the family, but worried about keeping a budget? At this resort, kids stay free! Yes, you read that right. Kids 12 & under get all the food and fun at no extra cost to mom and dad. Whether getting crafty at the activity center, kicking butt at the video game arcade or playing in the sun and surf, your kids can live it up without shelling you out.

Need a drink while making a splash? Just float over to one of the submerged lounge chairs and let one of the resort's skilled mixologists dazzle you with a cocktail. Remember, if you're with your kids, they are having a great time at the Kids Club!

A fresh new look, three pools with ocean views, restaurants, bars, a spa, activities and plenty of areas to unwind, this resort really is a resort for everyone

    Agave blast

    The food and drinks were amazing. Very skillful bartenders and kind service. The dessert was great and so were the tacos. Stefanny was our server and she was amazing. Highly recommend this place to anyone and try to get Stefanny to be your server!

    This hotel has gone downhill in terms of service. This is the fourth time staying here in the last two years simply because we like that it’s convenient and my kids love the kiddie pool. Had to wait for a room from 2 to 5:30pm with a 4 and 6 year old who had been up since 4am to catch a flight here. Finally got a room but they gave me a room with a king size bed and a pull out couch with no linens. After complaining to the manager Maria, she told me that they’re all booked which I know is BS because I spoke to the cleaning staff who conveyed that there’s definitely open rooms. Their excuse is that because we booked through JetBlue vacations rather than directly through the hotel they don’t have to honor the “Standard Ocean View” King bed or two double beds description. I will definitely also note this to Jetblue. If you want good service DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!

    Amazing Vacation!

    Service was amazing. Everyone was so attentive and remembered us and our needs each day! John Montes was an especially amazing server for us at the beach bar and taking care of us under the palapa along with the crew taking care of our towels, chairs, and floats.

    Top tier experience

    The hotel was great, comfortable, and everyone was so happy and welcoming. Our server on the beach John Montes was amazing, and gave us the best service. The beach was so clean and relaxing, and the hotel was super clean! I believe its in a great location and i'll definitely be looking to come back here next year.
