Fodor's Expert Review Ritz-Carlton Aruba

L.G. Smith Blvd. 107, Palm Beach, n/a Aruba, Aruba

The high standards of Ritz-Carlton properties are well represented at the Aruba property with rooms that have private balconies, and ocean-view rooms that offer sweeping vistas of the Caribbean. Parents seeking a break will appreciate the range of distracting activities available from Ritz Kids, which includes an ocean learning program curated by the son of Jacques Cousteau. The resort is expansive, so it never feels crowded, and despite the numerous entertainment options available, peace and quiet are easily found. The spa is one of the largest on the island and offers a full range of treatments. Club Level guests (7th floor) have private lounge and daily food and beverage offerings.
