The most romantic scenery you will ever find!

Me and my wife came here to try this place out during the summer before our wedding and I have to tell you, we loved it! The place, the live music, and the food was nothing but perfect! We cannot compare it to anything else. When our wedding weekend arrived in Aruba, we planned to have my parents... read more

There isn't a bad seat in the house (aka sand). Watching the sunset surrounded by delicious food, great service, and natural beauty makes this place a must on your next trip to Aruba. It embodies all the qualities of a relaxing island vacation in one dining experience.

Food was solid and the sunset view was great, but the service was mediocre and the atmosphere was a little too cheesy for us (violinist that went table to table, etc...).

Very Romantic setting on the beach ,excellent service , the fish was excellent.I would give it 5 stars except for the long delay between appetizers and the entree,over 1 hour.When we finally got the food it was excellent and worth waiting for.

Arrived in Aruba around 4 meeting sister and brother in law. We stayed at the Bluegreen timeshare which is pretty much across the street from Passions. Food was wonderful as was the atmosphere! 4 people, $200 and we each split a meal! All food in Aruba is a expensive though so we were semi prepared.

We very much enjoyed this restaurant. The location is wonderful. There are not many places in this world where you can take your shoes off and massage your toes in the sand while you watch a beautiful sunset.

Soooo Passions, where do I begin? For first time Aruba goers, my husband and I wanted to experience the barefoot sand on the beach experience. We didnt realize there were actually so many options on the island to choose from once we were there, but we went with Passions because it looked like it had the best view, which I... More

Passions on the Beach in Aruba was a delightful dining experience. Tables are right in the sand with a water' sedge view of beautiful sunsets. Each table has a globe type light on it that changes color - very impressive. The seafood was delicious, staff very attentive, and all in all a great dining experience.

We had a marvelous meal here last year so, of course, we went back this year! Still absolutely perfect! The waiter was a young man from Holland doing his internship at Passions. He was personable and efficient. You cannot beat eating dinner right on the beach with the stars overhead and the sound of the ocean. It is elegant with... More
