“Very nice resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

This was a very nice resort right on the beach. It was located right across a large shopping center and within short walking distance from some good restaurants. If you want to get a beach tiki cover (called "chickee"), you better get up and "claim" your chickee no later than 5am.....or they may already be taken. I'm not kidding, people get up that early to get one! But you will love the resort.

other then the overly aggressive housekeeper trying to get in he room with security while I was sleeping, this place is awesome.

The beach is well maintained and the amenities are top notch. The shopping along the beach is cute and well maintained. I especially like the sports bar on the north side of the resort beach. the Sunday NFL ticket and happy hour specials are well worth it.

My in-laws own a timeshare here and we've stayed here twice. Once as a couple in 2005 and once with our 6 month old daughter in 2011. Both were wonderful trips. We love having a full kitchen because it can be quite the money saver. We just take a taxi to the grocery store to buy food and drinks, make breakfast right in our room, sandwich stuff for lunch and then we usually eat dinner out. The room is always clean, as are the pools and the beach is wonderful. You do have to get up early to reserve a palapa but this is the case with most places that you go. I would definitely recommend staying here.

For one week my family had a wonderful vacation. The Playa Linda is a family friendly resort with a competant and friendly staff. The grounds, pools and units are very well cared for. If you want a perfect vacation this is the place to stay!
Close to the resort are restaurants and shopping and the beach is absolutely pristine.

Room Tip: Choose a 1 bedroom or 2 bedroom unit with a pool and ocean view. The ground floor is great for fami...

We spent a week on Druif beach then a week at Playa Linda on Palm Beach. This beach is louder with more going on. If you are looking for tranquility don't stay up on Palm Beach! But having said that we loved our room at the Playa Linda. 509 has a double sized balcony so we lounged and read and soaked up the sun away from the crowds.

Room Tip: Owe were on the "inside" closer to the pool. I would look for an outside room next time to...

I have been coming to PLBR for over 10 years with my family and this was the 3rd year that my husband and I have come together. This resort keeps getting better. With recent unit renovations, property upgrades and restaurant changes, this resort never gets old. It's like coming home every year-- regardless of time of year, staff remembers you, the beach is always lovely and relaxation/decompression abounds. Even if you stay outside of your regular 'week', people are always friendly & welcoming.
Room renovations were just upgrading & modernization but great to see. The way the property is built, every unit has a view of something nice to look at AND the bedrooms do not line up with your neighbor-- no crying babies in the middle of the night, night owl neighbors coming home or anything else that you can hear.
New additions include a beach restaurant on the western side of the property, Carlito's Beach Bar (where the bocce courts used to be), a new grill on the eastern side of the property- Scotts Brats (TRY IT!! you won't be disappointed!) and beach waitstaff from 12-6. There is also a Carlito's bar annex near the convenience shop in the lobby.
As the title of the review states, we will only stop coming when this property closes. We won't stay anywhere else in Aruba.
