Aruba renders a vacation experience as uncommon as the island itself! If your vision of paradise consists of powder-white beaches and incredibly clear azure waters, Aruba is your paradise. This island of unusual landscapes, friendly residents, balmy breezes and tropical rhythms is an idyllic destination for anyone who loves the sun and surf. Its magnificent coast is one of the Caribbean’s most beautiful stretches of beach.

With resorts that start at $44.00 dollars a day to $238.00 a day.

A few of my favorites are:

The Holiday Inn SunSpree Aruba– will entice you from the moment you arrive. The porte cochere entrance, with beautiful, lush landscaping, welcomes you to a tropical paradise. A brick paved driveway leads to the open-air lobby with chandeliers, soft island music, elegant wood beam ceilings, and impressive tiled floors. Guests can expect attentive service and fine accommodations. All 600 modern, well-appointed guest rooms feature richly detailed furnishings, and the private balconies and patios afford you views of the beautiful Palm Beach, or tropical landscaping. Laze by the unique swimming pool or nap away the days in the shade of a palm. Four tennis courts, beach volleyball courts, and fully equipped Fitness Center will provide a physical challenge. Aruba is easy to get to, yet light years from anywhere you’ve been. Sunny, moderate days, soft white sand, and the rich island culture make Aruba an ideal place in the sun, and there is no better place to enjoy the jewel of the Dutch Caribbean.

The all-new Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino– features 558 newly renovated rooms and suites and the finest amenities and activities on Aruba. Two distinctive lodging options at this Aruba hotel offer both style and a tropical elegance. The Renaissance Marina Hotel is a hip destination for couples and the Renaissance Ocean Suites is perfect for families. Both Aruba resort options have pools or you can enjoy the 40-acres of private beach on Renaissance Island, which features inviting hammocks, a casual restaurant and bar, and many sporting activities. Aruba’s best shopping; dining, casinos, and nightlife are all at the Renaissance Aruba Resort. For groups, the Renaissance Convention Center offers 22,000 sq ft of function space as well as special themed events on Renaissance Island. The Renaissance Aruba Resort is a Caribbean vacation from the ordinary!

Tierra del Sol Resort & Country Club– is one of the Caribbean’s most exclusive addresses. Home to Aruba’s only golf resort, a Robert Trent Jr. 18-hole championship course located on the breathtaking northwest shore of the island. Experience the difference vacationing in a spacious, luxuriously appointed condominium or villa home in the beautiful and serene country club community. Luxurious Villas, World-Class Spa & Fitness Center, Robert Trent Jones Jr. Championship Golf, Award Winning Cuisine, and 600 Acres of unspoiled beauty.

Of course, wherever you travel, it is highly recommended that you take out travel insurance before embarking on any vacation. Unfortunately, without insurance, you have little recourse if you have to suddenly cancel your trip due to illness or other unforeseeable circumstances. Realize that resorts like this will expect to be paid no matter what. However, with travel insurance, you can recoup some or all of your costs if travel and vacation plans change. Travel insurance is very affordably priced, so please check out your options.
