Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino

Palm - Eagle Beach, Aruba

A comfortable, modern getaway for families with a great pool, gym, spa, and casino, the Marriott Resort is fancier than its only neighbors, the Marriott Surf Club and the Marriott Ocean Club. This Marriott is a bit farther from the airport than most Aruban resorts, but it's only a three-minute walk to the High Rise complex. The rooms are big and bright with quality technology, large balconies and great water pressure in the bathrooms.


Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort and Casino

Palm - Eagle Beach, Aruba

Gorgeous pools, a reliable kids club, and a soft-sand beach in a modern hotel near the High-Rise shopping/dining/drinking complex -- the Hyatt is virtually flawless, even if it does lack local charm. Rooms are clean and modern, and have flat-screen TVs, excellent beds, and iPod docks -- they're among the best in Aruba, excusing the tiny balconies. Zoia Spa reopened in May 2012 following a complete renovation, and now offers a full range of tratments and salon services.
