Can You Recommend Any All-Inclusive Resort in Aruba Island?
I hope you have read my earlier post about Aruba Island. It was titled, “Ultimate Travel Guide to Aruba Island”.
A few readers wanted to know if I can recommend any all-inclusive resort in Aruba Island based on feedback from actual travelers to this Caribbean island.
Of course, anyone can open tripdavisor, search for hotels and resorts in Aruba Island and read the reviews left behind by real visitors to the resorts and sea-view cottages. However, a travel blogger can read between the lines of reviews and descriptions of hotels in any place. They can detect hidden or un-mentioned charges in the offers of all-inclusive packages of resorts and overwater bungalows and write their findings in their travel blogs.
Just to recap, Aruba is a Caribbean Island that is much less crowded than other Caribbean islands such as Barbados, Bahamas, or Cuba. The food and drink in Aruba Island would allure gastronomes, especially the Americans who can’t seem to have enough of seafood. Of course, the residents of Netherlands would always like to visit Aruba island as it belongs to the Dutch.
Based on my research, here are my findings for all-inclusive Aruba resorts.
As I wrote in my earlier blog post, all the best-staying options in Aruba Island are located in the northwestern part of the island, on the way to Palm Beach.
