My family and I really enjoyed the Natural Pool and the entire tour with our guide Roland! He was very knowledgeable and personable.

We enjoyed the ride bouncing over the roads is a lot of fun. I was hoping for a few more stops along the way and maybe ending at the beach for a relaxing swim. The driver Julienne was a great driver since no one bounced out of the Jeep. I would recommend the trip to anyone and everyone.

We knew going into our trip that this side of the island was the "rough" side - both the beach and the roads, so we went with Madi's Magical Tours and were beyond pleased. Loved the waves crashing on the rocks, so didn't want to leave. As others stated the roads are horrible, I was so glad we took the... More

I read about this natural pool and how to get there on tripadvisor and decided to walk instead of riding the ATV's since I don't like bumpy ride and we don't have little ones to worry about. My husband and I first visited the National Park and asked the ranger station receptionist for info on how to get there. Well,... More

My husband and I rented a jeep and toured the island. Our main purpose was to go to the natural pool. It was not very easy to find, we just asked some locals for directions. The terrain is very rough. You are bouncing around like crazy and not even sure you are going in the right direction as the road... More

I wanted to show my older children the island of Aruba and it's various attractions like the Natural Pool. Several people in their reviews stated that "getting there was half the fun". Let me tell you, the people that said that are correct. The pool itself is a small body of water surrounded by big rocks and some fish that... More

The Natural Pool is located in the National Park on Aruba. If you rent a jeep you will soon see that they warn you not to take it to the Natural Pool. I would suggest that this is likely a good idea NOT to drive all the way to the base. It is really a very rocky, jagged road down.... More

We rented a Jeep for the day from Top-Drive. The guy there said we could take it anywhere on the island except for the Natural Pool. But, he said everybody does it and you definitely need a Jeep to get there. We took our three kids (11, 10, 6) and headed to the National Park. It's $10 per adult (kids... More

Our jeep tour that led us to the natural pool was great. Our driver, Matthew, was so much fun. It was a rough and bumpy drive to the natural pool so his expertise made it a better experience than one of our party trying to drive it. The walk down to the pool was not easy but it was worth... More

If you are going to Aruba, you really have to take this tour! The Natural Pool itself isn't a 5-star attraction, but getting there certainly is. Windy, hilly, EXTREMELY bumpy roads take you to this out-of-the-way spot. Don't bother wearing a hat, because it will blow off in the first 5 minutes! We took the half-day tour for $99 each... More
