Why travel to Aruba?
Bathed in the warmth of a turquoise sea and cooled by trade winds, Aruba is the happy home to constant sunshine and powdery-soft white-sand beaches.
But our island is also alive with sights, sounds and culinary delights found on no other Caribbean island. With friendly people eager to welcome and embrace you. With surprising natural wonders to explore, and countless ways to relax, indulge your wild side and find happiness, however you want to.
Which hotel to choose in Aruba
The Marriott—the best all-around stay on Aruba—ticks all the Caribbean vacation must-haves: there’s a swim-up pool bar for adults only, a prime oceanfront location fronting popular Palm Beach, and even a vintage schooner for whisking guests offshore on snorkeling excursions.
With its twisted-in-the-wind Divi trees and sugar-fine sand, Eagle Beach—consistently ranked one of the best beaches in the world—attracts a more low-key crowd than nearby Palm Beach.
This grande dame of the Palm Beach hotel scene had us at hammock massages (just one of the offerings in the 15,000-square-foot spa). Set on a quieter stretch of Aruba’s busiest beach, the Ritz-Carlton is as romantic as it is family-friendly.
Right in the heart of Palm Beach (and within walking distance of all manner of restaurants, bars, and shops), this recently updatedHyatt is a favorite for families.
