Went for a nov4-11th girls trip Hotel room were spacious we mostly only only went into the rooms to get ready for dinner / sleep beautiful views as I was on the 13th floor ocean view only down side I had with our room was the door was HEAVY felt like it weighed 200 lbs and floors when feet are wet very slick laid a towel down near the bed to not trek sand into the bedding Room service is included & prompt steakhouse you have to stand in line no reservations and you have to be dressed nicely I.e. no swimsuits/trunks needless to say my group didn't go to the steakhouse as people,were,lining up early Buffet was decent BUT NOTHING compared to the Rui Palace next door with you can eiher walk along the beach or use the tunnel you REALLY SHOULD make the trek over to their buffet the wristband from Antilles will get you into the buffet. I went later around 8pm to the buffet on the kids resort and it seemed that the kids were nearly gone

Our new favourite hotel!

This hotel is just the best hands-down, plus it's adults only! The staff are so genuinely friendly. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded to a sea-view room which made our mornings that much better! The restaurants are great. We only ate in the buffet for breakfast and there was such variety, even gluten-free and dairy-free options which made me happy. The à la carte options were great: Rimini - Italian, there is an appetizer bar where you can choose your own apps, we had the rack of lamb and osso bucco which were delicious. Krystal - International- a bit fancier and strict dress code which is nice. The wine flowed very freely for us which as great. Had some appetizers, ceviche and miso seabass Steakhouse - so good we went there twice. Caesar salad, ceviche and lobster with fries for dinner. A plate of desserts were shared. Malmok - Arubian dinner, pretty good and typical Arubian food. The sea was so calm and there is a place you can dive from. No problems getting a chair. The staff is there to help you with that. Bring clips for the chairs to keep your towel from blowing away, Always easy to get drinks by the pool. We did some stand up paddle boarding which was fine. The rooms were always clean, had turn down service and many free beverages in the room plus free liquor The spa was fantastic. Will definitely go back! Also, close enough to walk downtown or to the butterfly farm!

Amazing vacation

My wife and I just returned today from a 9 day stay at this truly amazing hotel. The hotel is beautiful, food at all the restaurants including the Buffet is delicious and a huge variety of seafood,meats,fruits etc..... But the most important thing in this hotel is people!!! The staff is absolutely great! Very professional,always with a smile and they their best to make sure your vacation is outstanding. We travel a lot in the Caribbeans but this place makes you want to come to them as soon as possible. We already looking to book it for next year and invited 4 other couples to come with us. Sorry I forgot to mention the beach..... how could I Absolutely beautiful,vey clean and specious. The attendants at the beach and pool are constantly running around making sure that everything is taking care of. Very pleasant and professional. None of the staff members are looking into your hands for tips ( like in most other places). You have to run after them to give them a tip. It mays you want to give them more. All I can say ..... This place is fantastic! P.S. the rooms are very clean but need remodeling.

Aruba Is Nice

We were in room 1520. A very nice hotel. It is a little dated but overall, it should meet your needs. Several restaurants on site. We tried the Italian but were unable to get into the steakhouse. I would recommend to anyone. No kids. Individual bar in the rooms. The service was great. We tried the room service once. They were prompt in bring the meal. The only negative is folks were allowed to place towels on the lounge chairs near the pool for hours. Others had a limited number of chances to use the area

Wonderfully private Villa

Our villa was on the bottom floor which made it easy for us with all our scuba gear. The room was studio like with a huge glass and stone shower, large jetted tub, double sink vanity, sitting area, top shelf self serve liquor, beer, soda and balcony and private swimming pool with cabanas. Buffets were delicious, well stocked and clean. Bathroom's were always very clean, staff was gracious.
