Aruba Hotels have several choices at your disposal. The hospitality industry goes to great length on meeting and exceeding your expectations. The competition between Hotels is fierce, if one Aruba Hotel has a new service o feature, hotels scramble to match it or add to it.
Hotels in Aruba are one of the biggest economic engine of the island and bending- over-backwards to tourist is not predetermine to just an elite high paying customers but to all customers.
Big hotels, small hotels, resorts, timeshare, villas and much smaller cater extremely well to all their visitors and the service in most cases is superb. It will be difficult to find a lemon in Aruba, lemon being a bad hotel; With Aruba Hotels are some issues of location, prices and amenities while you are trying to choose the right accommodations in your trip to Aruba.
Keep in mind that there are not free lunches even in Aruba, but you will find great deal if you plan to book your trip in low season, which is between April to late November or early December, the rates during that season tend to be 50 % lower than the higher season, during the low season you will see more of families or groups on the island as well visitors from South America since it turns out to be their winter season during those months of the year.
In the contrary, visitors from Canada, United States and Europe tend to visit between December- to- April frame period, but also they are a much older crowed.
Aruba Hotels are above from other Caribbean islands hotels, they tend to be clean, fairly well maintain and mostly all of them have basic amenities such as air condition rooms, clean water, and a pool for their guest. Of course the bigger the hotel or resort, they have more amenities such as spa, restaurants, much more selection of rooms, suites and of course pools, also that there is a correlation with the price of the room you pay.
Even tough there are great deals, many Aruba Hotels, specially the medium or large one offer many packages, one common package is the Honeymoon one, in which they will handle the event to meet the bride’s wishes and all the necessary paperwork to be legally married in Aruba regardless of race or religion. For other packages call your local travel agent or the hotel and see what fits you the best.
Aruba Hotels are divided into the three geographical areas, one is in downtown Oranjestad, then the low- rise which is on the near north of the island, near Machebo and Eagle beach, and the last section is on the high-rise on Palm beach. Each with its unique set of hotels, those 3 areas hold probably 90 % of the entire hotels on the island.
There are some much more bed and breakfast in the southern part of the island, especially in the town of Saint Nicholas, another section of the website we will have a section that will talk about some of them, but in the meantime just mentioning the 3 areas will give you a clear vision what the hotels in Aruba are and what they can offer.
In downtown Oranjestad, the hotels offer closeness to all kind of shopping, dinning and entertainment options including nightlife, cinema, casino and much more, all these within walking distance, which is great. Although, downtown area does not have any front beach, a few great beaches are only 10 minute drive. Unlike many other islands that they tell you not go out of their facilities, Aruba is safe for all visitors, so being outside the hotel, having a good time is not a problem.
