Aruba accommodations come in a wide variety. Resorts, hotels, apartments, villas, hostels, low-budget, bed and breakfast are all possibilities to choose from. Many properties offer beachfront views while some are more situated inland and more to the south, away from popular places like Palm Beach or Eagle Beach. Amenities vary, they all depend on the star rating and location and the concept of the accommodation.
Aruba can be a busy tourist destination, especially during winter or around Christmas time and spring break. But also during the summer, especially when travelers from Europe are visiting Aruba for their summer holidays. We recommend you make your reservation well in advance. Just traveling on an airline ticket can result in disappointing results.
