Hyatt Regency Aruba Beach Resort & Casino Review

This 12-acre property is popular with families, but honeymooners head here, too, because the resort is big enough to provide quiet, romantic corners. The sand-color high-rise building is topped by a distinctive hacienda-style roof, and interconnected pools, flow through the compound and end in an ornamental lagoon. Rooms are well equipped, but the balconies are rather small. There's no lack of activities for adults; in addition to a casino, the resort offers horseback riding, water sports, tennis, and a highly regarded spa. Kids' programs are extensive as well. The restaurants are very good, most notably Ruinas del Mar, which serves fresh seafood with a continental flair.

    Our favorite place to stay!

    My family and I have been to Aruba 5 times in the past 2 years. It has turned out to be our favorite beach and overall destination. We continue to stay at the Hyatt. The rooms are newly renovated and very modestly nice and clean. The housekeeping staff is readily available to assist with any extra requests. The hotel food is great. We enjoy the buffet breakfast every morning and the service provided. We get the same waiter every time who knows us by name now and really goes above and beyond! We also either eat lunch at the pool bar or the Palms. Again, service is great and the food is fresh and just right. The kids menu available at the hotel is very accomodating, with chicken noodle soup and salad as a few of the selections. We enjoy the Italian restaurant for dinner. The food is reasonably priced and always consistently good. We did not care much for Japengo. We felt it was very overpriced and the food wasn't that special. The pool area consists of several elevations of swimming area. There is a great water slide for kids and adults which provides endless entertainment. Pool service is attentive and readily available. The beach is my favorite. There is always a shaded hut ready for occupancy. I don't always get front row ocean view, but I can always see it from a few extra feet. The water is beautiful and clear and clean. Water toys are at arms reach for a small fee. Hammocks hang in teh shade for use - great for quiet reading. Beach service is attentive and consistent. The servers hustle to provide great service - it's their livelihood. All in all, whenever we travel elsewhere, we constantly compare it to the Hyatt in Aruba. When in other places, we wish we had gone to the Aruba Hyatt!
