Combining the amenities of a large resort with the island charm of Aruba, this hotel is a favorite among travelers for its prime location on Palm Beach and its vast range of facilities and room types. Guests have everything at their fingertips, from an on-site casino to a sports bar, a sushi bar, and toes-in-the-sand beachfront dining. Guests can pay for a front-row palapa, or snag one in the back for free. Those staying at the hotel-within-a-hotel, the Tradewinds Club, have access to their own secluded beach complete with a private bar and beachside spa treatments. A newer feature at the resort is the stunning adults-only pool, H2Oasis, with wooden cabanas (for a fee) for extra privacy. You can even tack on a spa treatment while you're there. If you stay in the South Tower, you'll have easy access to the pool from the patio. Rooms are spacious with a fresh design, featuring balconies with views of the garden or beach, and nice touches like rain-style showerheads, walk-in closets, and double sinks. Junior Suites are stunning, with wraparound balconies and ocean or garden views, and the 49 Tradewinds rooms are just as nice, with perks like panoramic ocean views, private lounge access, and VIP treatment.
