Top Aruba All-Inclusive Resorts

From the Divi to the Riu, the best resorts to pay one price in Aruba

By

Aruba is one of the most popular Caribbean destinations for U.S. travelers, but unlike Jamaica and the Dominican Republic it has not been known for its all-inclusive resorts. However, resorts like the Divi Aruba and Tamarijn have been offering an all-inclusive experience for years, and the newer Riu Palace gives you more choices than ever for a pay-one-price Aruba vacation. Plus, many of Aruba's all-inclusives are all located at Palm Beach, Aruba's best resort district.

Opened in summer 2007, the Riu Palace has already become a Palm Beach landmark wih its unique, turreted hotel towers. All-inclusive package includes dining at the resort's Japanese, Italian, fusion, and steakhouse restaurants, as well as use of most amenities and a daily entertainment program.

Guests at the 236-room Tamarijn Aruba can use the facilities at the neighboring Divi Aruba, which only adds to the appeal of an all-inclusive resort that features five restaurants and three pools. Guests looking for suite-style accommodations can stay at the adjacent, 97-suite Divi Dutch Village.

Located on Aruba's famous Palm Beach, the Divi Aruba has 203 rooms, four restaurants and three pools, plus shared use of the facilities at the neighboring Divi Tamarijn resort. Property highlights include the Divi Winds Sports Center, which has a 30-foot rock-climbing wall and a fitness center. Located next door (and not part of the all-inclusive package) are the Alhambra Casino and the Links at Divi Aruba, a nine-hole golf course.

This Palm Beach resort resembles the typical high-rise, full-service hotel but provides an all-inclusive package that includes dining at six restaurants, tennis and water sports, scuba clinics, and a kid's club. The hotel has an on-site casino, too, and those who want VIP treatment can book a room in the Royal Club, which includes suite accommodations and access to the private Royal Club Lounge.
