overall quite good, the staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel and rooms were clean and made everyday. The food at the Ruinas Del mar was tasty, but expensive. The pools and the beach were great, really a nice place for families to enjoy a nice and relaxing vacation.
We had never stayed in the hotel and arrived just after the name change. There was an easy check-in with polite and attentive staff. The room was lovely even though we expected a clearer view of the ocean. Overall, an excellent stay and visit to Aruba!
The question on Palm Beach is this: lounge or live large? There’s a reason the major resorts and clubs are located near these calm waters. The beach is an ideal place to do absolutely nothing, with a cold drink in hand. There’s also swimming, golf, horseback riding, ATV rentals, and plenty of water sports.
