Fodor's Expert Review Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino & Spa
J. E. Irausquin Blvd. 266, Palm Beach, n/a Aruba, Aruba
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
This hotel sits on five acres overflowing with tropical foliage and cresting famous Palm Beach. Three towers named after the ABC Islands (Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao) offer a variety of guest rooms and suites, all recently refreshed with bright Caribbean accents and modern amenities. And the top two floors of the Aruba tower are reserved for their more upscale Plaza Club rooms—a resort-within-the-resort experience—with many extras like private concierge and private club lounge. Two zero-entry pools, upscale dining, a casino, a first-rate spa, and a kids' club add to the offerings, and there is also a five-star PADI dive facility on-site. Every Tuesday night the Biba Aruba Party with excellent entertainment is also open to the public.
