“Very nice and large hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Came here for our honeymoon and stayed for 8 nights. It was great! The service at the Hyatt was very good. All hotel staff members were nice and friendly.
The room was nice and clean. You could feel the luxury (the bed for example was very comfortable) standard of the hotel, however it might need some refreshing in a few years to keep its 4-5 star status.
Finally, the location was very good with a good variety of restaurants and shopping nearby within walking distance. We had breakfast included and it was ok, a bit too much American style for our taste - I would not consider it worth $22 per person + taxes.

I would recommend Palm Beach for its location and more luxurious hotels, but if you want to have a cleaner water and a bit nicer beach, then you should go further south to Eagle Beach.

Liked most: Location, cleanness of the hotel and the Aruban climate.
Liked least: Very small variety of the tourists, 90% are speaking American and 9% are from Spanish speaking countries.

Even before we arrived, Aida in reservations was great. Daniel, the manager at the front desk, was a wonderful help in setting up our visit for maximum comfort. We got an upgrade to a lovely ocean view room with a nice, roomy bathroom. We had a long wait for our room, so they provided a complimentary lunch for us, as well. The concierge desk was very helpful and gave us good recommendations for meals.

Overall a nice vacation and the staff handled everything well despite being at full capacity. We really appreciate the added touches of the room upgrade and complimentary meals. It made our visit even better!! We love Hyatt properties and this one did not disappoint.Thank you!!

Room Tip: higher rooms are better because of the music playing at night.

My husband and I visited in December and the weather did not cooperate. I rained the entire trip which is no refection on the hotel. The hotel is beautiful and has most anything you need. Bars, restaurants and a helpful concierge. If you like Aruba I would recommend this hotel. Personally I find Aruba a bit too commercial. From our garden view balcony we had an ocean view to the left and a view of a Wendy's sign on my right. I prefer something a bit more secluded.

We just got back from a week in Aruba and stayed at the Hyatt. The hotel is located on Palm Beach and is centrally located which makes it an easy walk to all shopping and restaurants. The hotel is a lovely property with waterfalls, gardens, winding walkways, tropical birds and swans. The grounds were manicured and immaculate and you could see staff constantly cleaning and tending to the hotel. The rooms were very nice and it looked like they were recently updated. The bathrooms were beautiful and very large with plenty of space for all your toiletries etc. The only drawback to the room is that there is no balcony to walk out on. There is just a little narrow ledge you can look over and stand on. I personally like to have a terrace to sit on and relax in the evening when the sun is setting. The beds were very comfortable and there was good drawer space.
The beach was very nice too. It was pretty wide where the Hyatt is located and there is lots of shade due to the fact that there are many palm trees and huts you can rent for the week. We had no problem getting a hut for the week but we went in early December. I have heard it is very difficult to get one over Christmas Break.
Unfortunately we did not get to experience any of the fine dining at the hotel due to the fact that the restaurant was under construction while we were there. I understand it was going to be ready for the folks that came over Christmas. I had heard the food was pretty good at the restaurant. We did eat breakfast every morning at the Palms restaurant which is located right by the beach. It was a very nice buffet breakfast and the service was very good but they seem to have a problem with birds flying around and swooping down on your food when you aren't looking. I don't know how they can address this problem unless they put screens up.
The hotel also has a gym, a great water slide for the kids and a beautiful pool.
One thing more... the hotel does not have free wifi and it costs $35 to sign up and its not per room, its per device so between my husband and I we had to spend $70. to have wifi on each of our iPads. That is something the hotel should change because it seems to be a bit greedy.
Overall though we had a great time and would highly recommend this hotel to couples or families. It is a first class place!

Room Tip: If you get a room that faces the pool you also get the beautiful sunset every night

The Hyatt is where we stay every year we travel to Aruba. The staff are exceptionally friendly and treat us like family. The grounds are beautiful with gardens to get lost in. There are parrots, turtles, swans, ducks and fish to see while walking the paths through the gardens. Our room was immaculately cleaned every day by Mirine, in housekeeping. The entire hotel, grounds and beach are very clean.
There are many restaurants within the hotel as well as many right across the street. There is Smokey Joe's, Hard Rock Cafe , Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts and many more. The Hyatt does not have free Wifi but Starbucks and the Hard Rock do. We are looking forward to our winter get-away next year !
