My stay at the Caribbean Palm Village was great from start to finish. I was welcomed at check-in and helped with my luggage to my unit which was very nice. Housekeeping changed towels, took out the trash and in addition made my bed and washed the dishes, which I did not expect. Everyone I encountered that worked there always greeted me with a smile and a Hello. I would definitely recommend staying there and hope to return some day. I have visited the beautiful island of Aruba for over 35 years and keep going back because of how special we are treated by the people of Aruba.
After initial disappointment with room placement, (construction vehicle and workers porch side) and no other options available, our decision to make it a good experience prevailed. 1/2 facilities not available including a pool, hot tub, restaurant and bar advertised for breakfast, lunch, dinner and happy hour specials. Not knowing this when booked expected some type of compensation. “ our apologies” is all that was offered. Again, needed to choose our attitude and focus to enjoy our time here and with each other. Would be remiss not to share these issues. Glad we are a strong couple and choose wisely. Would like to enjoy this facility after renovations are completed. (Maybe a goodwill invite and price could make it happen).
While we prefer a place on the beach, the transportation to and from the beach and the amenities while at the beach were greatly appreciated. The room was well taken care of and clean. Only one glitch and that is that the pool chair reservation rules were not adhered to. In order to reserve a place at the pool, we had to get out there at 6:30 am to stake out couple of chairs because people would stake out their place and be gone for hours thus taking up space not properly utilized.
Overall, this was a good place which provided the value we expected.
The walk to the high-rise area only took about 20 minutes.
It was great!!! Clean Friendly and just great people. The bar/diner was a great deal too!
The restaurant /bar had great food and values
