The All-Inclusive Resorts in Aruba That Are Ideal for Families

Jan 18, 2023 By Daniel Jackson

Why is Aruba known as the "Happy Island"? Who would be depressed on a Dutch West Indies Island in the Southern Caribbean Sea, where the sun shines year-round, and Hurricanes never hit? Add in the beautiful white sand beaches, turquoise ocean, and Aruba all-inclusive resorts, and its little wonder that smiles are the norm on this island. Aruba is a place where the water shines.

The island of Aruba has enough to offer those who prefer to stay on dry land. Nearly 20% of Aruba is protected as the Arikok National Park. Its desert-like landscape provides a stunning background for a whopping 20 miles of untamed terrain that UTV, Jeep Safari, ATV, horseback, or on foot may explore. You can discover some of Aruba's most secluded beaches near Arikok. Aruba is a fantastic island for birdwatchers, with over 200 different kinds of birds, many of which may be seen from the island's designated birdwatching tower at the Bubali Bird Sanctuary.

The Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort

The Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort features four different freshwater swimming pools, so everyone in your group may choose a collection that they enjoy. The water slides are sure to be a massive hit with youngsters. The adult guests will appreciate the seclusion of the adult pool and the swim-up bar. If you'd rather spend your time on the sand, there's a beautiful beach across the street where you can play volleyball, swim, snorkel, kayak, or go rafting. The Link at Divi Aruba is an excellent course for golf enthusiasts.

You need not worry if you are a novice: A golf academy may quickly bring you up to speed. (There's a tennis academy at the resort, too.) Poolside eateries and gourmet fare can be found at the Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort. Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort, like Divi Dutch Village, is different from a typical all-inclusive resort; nonetheless, guests who book all-inclusive packages at any of these properties will also have access to three more Divi properties elsewhere in Aruba.

Aruba Holiday Inn Resort

The Holiday Inn Resort Aruba is ideally located on a picturesque stretch of Palm Beach, about a quarter mile from the resort's main entrance. The resort offers a variety of amenities, including on-site dining options, a la carte selections, a convenient setting, and large rooms with ocean views.

The resort's all-inclusive package includes the following:

  • Meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) at any hotel's restaurants (for kids and adults).
  • Alcoholic beverages (within reason).
  • A $75 credit toward spa services.
  • A 25% discount at the Pelican Adventures

Manor Beach Resort

This pet-friendly resort on Eagle Beach features 72 rooms and studios, ideal for those seeking a more independent getaway. The vibrant colors and yards stand out against the backdrop of Dutch colonial buildings. Several attractive culinary alternatives here will appeal to anyone interested in the Dutch Caribbean way of life. The resort's commitment to sustainable practices will appeal to budget-conscious guests.

Barceló Aruba

The all-inclusive Barcelo Aruba, situated on the renowned Palm Beach, features a beautiful lagoon-shaped swimming pool surrounded by rocks and palm trees. Relax in one of Barcelo's two hydromassage pools or laze on a hammock out in the sun. Active guests can take advantage of the resort's many recreational opportunities, including kayaking, water polo, darts, windsurfing, kite surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, tennis courts (with the option of private lessons for those who want to improve their game) and a fully equipped fitness studio. Golf courses are conveniently located nearby, and scuba diving lessons may be arranged in the pool.

The most challenging choice you'll have to make at the end of a good day at the Barceló is whether to have a massage come to your room or visit the spa. Seven restaurants and three bars are available to guests, including the Lobby Bar, with live entertainment. Think you might have some luck today? The casino at this Aruba all-inclusive has been updated and is ready to be played in. When the grownups need some alone time, the younger guests may enjoy themselves at the kid’s club, which caters to youngsters aged four to twelve. If you're in the mood to splurge, take advantage of the resort's Royal Level Service. The top three stories of the North Tower house a chic boutique hotel that offers an upgraded "All Inclusive Premium" experience with premium services and facilities unavailable to regular guests.
