“An inland gem in the Noord area of Aruba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Caribbean Palm is about a mile east of the high rise hotels. It contains a mix of studio, one and two bedroom suites. They have been doing a lot of upgrading since the last time we were here. The resort shows very well. You enter the resort on the east side of the complex, and guest services are in a building that once held an Italian restaurant. There is a restaurant, Sweet Peppers, on the property.

The guest service building also houses a nice looking exercise room and I believe a guest lounge, though I have not seen it yet. Free wifi is available around the pools, and we are getting an acceptable signal in our room.

Our two bedroom suite has a king size bed in each bedroom, a very large living room with I believe a fold out bed/sofa and a full kitchen. Owners of these two BR units can create two vacation weeks by using the second bedroom as a lock-out, and exchanging the other half for a second week here or elsewhere. To allow this, the second bedroom contains an efficiency kitchen with a smaller refrigerator and microwave. Smaller appliances such as coffee pots and blenders are also in both kitchens.

Caribbean Palm has beach access agreements with three resort beaches. All beaches are public in Aruba, but the guest card will get you beach chairs or recliners, and so forth. Fresh pool towels are available each day by turning in the used ones.

Elevators are available in some but not all buildings. People with disabilities or problems climbing stairs can contact the resort to get accessible rooms.

The staff have been helpful and courteous without exception so far this week. The pools are clean, there are lots of tabled with umbrellas for shade, and plenty of room to stretch out at the pool without falling over somebody. If being at a beachfront property is not your highest priority, we recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Families with children should get first floor rooms. Most if not all have a patio with direct access...

The resort is about 1.5 miles from the beach. Having said that if you go diving, snorkeling, etc the company you buy your package from will pick you up so the distance from the beach isn't that big of a deal. We had six people in a two bedroom suite and we had a lot of room. The resort consisted mostly of retired people. The only bad thing I could say about the resort was it had a bad car rental service.

We returned last weekend after a 2 week stay at this resort.We have owned a timeshare there for 15 years,but never had stayed there before.The resort is beautiful,well maintained and safe.The staff were all helpful and polite.There was plenty to do as far as activities..or you could do nothing at all.We stayed on the 3rd floor of building A in room 1307 overlooking the bar and pool and were very pleased with the condition of the condo and the location of our room.There was no attempt to hard sell additional timeshares.Overall it was a wonderful vacation,we met many nice people,both visitors and locals,and we will be back.

The Caribbean Palm Village is located slightly inland from Palm Beach. It is a gorgeous resort. Access to the beach is at the Moomba Beach Bar, between the Marriott and Holiday Inn. A courtesy shuttle is provided twice daily. The resort is classy, has an excellent pool area and a restaurant / bar with multiple daily Happy Hours. Should you wish to stay within the resort, your time around the Palm tree surrounded pool will be most pleasant. We had a one bedroom unit with two bathrooms, flat screen TV’s, Wi-Fi, full kitchen and blender. The BBQ area was clean and functional. Shopping for groceries was easy with a small grocery store only a few minutes to the north of the resort. Prices were best in town. The store was well lit and products were of good quality. Turn left at the main gate. 2 minute walk on right hand side of road.

Room Tip: Pool View is a good choice

We spent two weeks at CPV in February. The resort is well maintained, very secure and the staff are friendly, helpful and courteous. There are some activities organized evey day and on Tuesdays they have a guest appreciation party which is very nice. The beach is a 5 minute drive and the well stocked supermarkets are10 minues away. The resort also has gas BBQs so dining in is an easy option. There are two pools and two hot tubs and plenty of umbrellas, chairs and loungers. We overheard people that were staying at a resort on the beach saying that it was very noisy at night, so CPV in Noord is a nice, quiet option for couples or families.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit by the back pool. The front pool has a number of activities. The back pool area is better for just relaxing. The facility is about a mile from the beach, but it offers membership at Moomba Beach Club while your staying with them. Also, they have a morning and afternoon schuttle to the club. I recommend renting a car in order to enjoy a variety of restaurants and different beaches in Aruba. We enjoyed the last 2 weeks in January when it is in the mid 80's every day!

Room Tip: The first floor room mostly open onto the pools. The 2 story buildings do not have elevators, but t...
