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!
Always a great stay
Once again, a great stay at the Hilton Aruba. We’ve stayed at several other hotels over the years but this has been our go to for quiet a while now. Centrally located on the palm beach strip, with walking distance to so much From being welcomed at the door by Francisco to helpful check in staff, the trip starts out great. Concierge is very helpful also The property is beautifully landscaped and they have the best pool and beach area on palm beach The rooms are nice. We prefer the Bonaire building because it’s conveniently located between the lobby and beach. Not super high end but very clean and well maintained. And all the bathrooms were renovated this past years to get rid of the horrible tubs and put in walk in shower stalls. You can’t go wrong staying at this property
Great property but no support from management when you need it. Fully price for half the service.
This was my first trip to Aruba and was excited to stay at the Hilton. Unfortunately this happened during the Coronaviris pandemic, but our trip was booked well in advance and there was no indication we should change plans. However, after our arrival the Aruba government restricted travel from foreigners and the island slowly started to shut down. It started with restricting store hours, then cancelling hotel activities/events, then closing a restaurant, then closing the spa, closing the gym, further restricting store and restaurant hours, cutting back on the beach service staff, putting away chairs and tables to make the place look deserted and clearing out the bars. While all this is happening, you are still paying full, busy-season price for the hotel (over $450 a night for basic room plus $100+ for every meal for family of 4 with no drinks). I asked management about offering some kind of meal/drink or room credit for all the services we were NOT receiving and I was told that it was their not their fault and we should feel fortunate we were in Aruba. My complaint fell on deaf ears; management completely dismissed my concern. I don't see how it is fair for guests to pay full retain price for everything and receive half of the usual service. You could go to a 2 star hotel and half nearly the same location and beach. The service and amenities make the hotel. The Hilton had it all, then they took it away and were completely unapologetic about continuing to take everyone's money. Others had the same complain and left early like us as a result.
