Hilton Aruba Resort Casino and Spa

Aruba, Caribbean

The hotel

Set in 15 acres of landscape, with enchanting lagoons, fragrant gardens and cascading waterfalls, the Hilton Aruba Resort, Casino and Spa offers you a little slice of paradise. Recently renovated, rooms are more than comfortable with either garden, pool or ocean views to admire from your private balcony. A whole range of amenities, including two swimming pools to laze by, fabulous diving opportunities and an ocean-side spa, are sure to please. Ideal for the entire family, the kids' club will keep the youngsters entertained whilst parents enjoy some quiet time. In fact, the resort runs a Parents Night-Out Programme and you’ll be glad they do because once the sun sets, the pace picks up. As well as several restaurants to linger in and the island’s only martini and wine bar, there’s a casino hosting events such as Little White Dress Mondays and Freeze-out Friday Poker Tournaments. Something the whole family will enjoy is Biba Aruba nights at Gilligan’s. Held every Tuesday, it’s a celebration of Aruban food and culture with live music, carnival dancers, fire dancers, a limbo show and local artisans. And the best bit? Admission is free so don’t miss out! Also highly recommended at Gilligan’s are Friday fish nights — the crew leave early on a Friday morning but are back in time to deliver dinner to your table — now that’s what we call dedication!

Great stay, location, spa, team, amenities and whole lot of a great beach. Island tours and sunset cruise set up by the host team were great. Will definitely come back and stay at the Hilton. Easy access to many restaurants and other night life on the island. Use the taxi service and don't request private transportation.

Three problems in an otherwise beautiful resort. Great beach with Palapas for shade and clean,white powder sand. Problem 1: not enough Palapas, even in off season - must reserve previous day at 4pm and they are all gone before 4:15. Pools are long and winding, great atmosphere. Hotel staff is all friendly, though not necessarily competent. … Read more
Three problems in an otherwise beautiful resort. Great beach with Palapas for shade and clean,white powder sand. Problem 1: not enough Palapas, even in off season - must reserve previous day at 4pm and they are all gone before 4:15. Pools are long and winding, great atmosphere. Hotel staff is all friendly, though not necessarily competent. Problem 2: Checked in at 4:30, at 5:50 told front desk that mobility scooter was being delivered at 6 pm, they said they would call me in my room when they arrived. Turns out they were already there and had talked with front desk which told them I hadn't checked in yet. At 6:30 I called scooter company directly and found they had been waiting in lobby for 40 minutes. Thank goodness they waited, despite front desk saying I wasn't there. Finally, room was nice, balcony with partial ocean view was great, maid service was top-notch. Problem 3: Mini-fridge didn't get cold, maintenance moved dresser, unplugged, restarted and said to call them again when it got too warm. Also showed button to push to cool for 2 hours. These refrigerators are poor and need to be replaced. Read less

This is a nice hotel. Lots of lush landscaping, great pools, very clean and friendly staff Our room is comfortable and has everything you could want. Love the comforter and pillows too. We left the Riu ( a sham of a hotel/ it’s a dump!) to finish our trip out here and it was a wise move.
