    Perched on the white sands of northwestern Aruba's Palm Beach, the Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino provides guest-approved customer service and amenities to suit every need. Each of the Hyatt's 357 accommodations comes equipped with a 65-inch LCD TV, a minifridge, a coffee maker and one or two of Hyatt's signature Grand Beds. Plus, all rooms can be booked with accrued World of Hyatt points. Adults can get a good pampering at ZoiA Spa or test their luck in the property's casino before retreating to the beach or three-level pool area. Kids will especially love the pool's two-story waterslide. When hunger sets in, visitors can choose from five traditional restaurants (and one beachfront eatery), including a Mexican-inspired eatery and the open-air Ruinas del Mar. For a more romantic atmosphere, dine on the beach at Pampered in Paradise or aboard one of the catamarans that set sail every Wednesday. Although many past visitors enjoyed their stays here, some suggested that they expected more for their money.

    Situated on the beach on Aruba's northwestern coast, this Ritz-Carlton outpost, opened in 2013, lives up to its brand's service, amenities and expectations, according to reviewers. Each stay starts with a complimentary welcome drink at check-in and extends to the spacious rooms, all of which feature marble bathrooms with separate showers and large soaking tubs, 46-inch LCD TVs and furnished balconies. Recent visitors described the staff at the front desk and the five on-site restaurants as exceptional. However, the property's cuisine receives mixed feedback. While some previous travelers enjoyed their dishes, others said their meals were average and expensive. When it's time to explore the hotel's offerings, adults can test their luck at slots or table games at the casino or head to the 15,000-square-foot spa to indulge in a unique treatment like a hammock massage or a Caribbean coconut salt scrub. This hotel isn't just for grown-ups, though. The Ritz Kids club entertains children ages 4 to 12 with activities like arts and crafts and board games. Plus, visitors of all ages can enjoy the hotel's two pools and beach, where water sports equipment like paddleboards, kayaks and snorkeling gear are available. And thanks to its Marriott ties, The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program, allowing members to accrue or redeem points here.
