Playa Linda is a great place. I enjoyed my stay immensely. We had a new housekeeper that was not as good as our previous one, Cecilia, but she was fine. Overall, it was a great trip with family and friends.

Curt “Champion” is such a joy. He really makes Playa Linda an enjoyable experience. Jessie was very helpful in helping me find a good chickee everyday. Very nice and makes great coffee! Papi at Carlitos is hilarious Front desk staff were always attentive. Concierge was unhelpful one day— I asked for a reservation to a steakhouse and they told me they made it for a Monday, but when I got to the restaurant it was closed! Sounds like the my DIDNT make me a reservation. Towels in efficiency unit stunk really bad two days.

We had a larger group with 5 rooms over two weeks between a townhouse, 1 bedroom and studio. Housekeeping was great, the chickie/hit thing is a bit painful as I hate waking up before sunrise to secure a spot at the pool or beach but we made it work. The towel hut was problematic this year as it wasn't clear to my group on the towel returns and then one day the folks on site forgot to check the towels in when we returned properly which wasn't a good experience. That being said the location is great, rooms pretty nice although not a big fan of the studio. GardenFresh on the front of the hotel still has service issues and definitely doesn't sit well so I would recommend skipping that place. Beds are all on the very firm side. I like a firm bed but these could have been a level or two softer and most of our group commented on the very firm mattresses. I would rate this place an 8-8.5 out of 10.

This place is extremely inconsistent, and could care less about quality of stay. The rooms are absolutely filthy. The insist they clean the tile.floors daily..if so why in 3 minutes are the bottoms of our feet black black??? The restaurants have been ran sacked by a local group and are horrible and a rip off. The management is sleeping g on the job. Totally nonresponsive. Also please don't complain they have zero customer service as a matter of fact everything isn't their fault its the fault of people staying there and no one else. Don't waste your money on this place because a lot of the rest of it is total bull also

As a timeshare resort that strives to meet and exceed the expectations of all our guests and we are concerned by the details of your experience. Our exceptional, high level of guest care is one of the most often commented upon positive aspects of a Playa Linda stay. However, we take all comments seriously, and have fully engaged all departments that have a connection to the points you mentioned and have conducted our own review, and identified where possible customer care could be improved. Your concerns in regards to the restaurants on the property will be shared with their Management team as these are not managed by Playa Linda. But ultimately, we take responsibility and apologize for any and all inconveniences encountered during a Playa Linda stay. We hope you might give us another chance to better demonstrate to you the extent to which we strive to make every visit a highly enjoyable and effortless vacation experience.

Have stayed at Playa Linda twice and had a great experience both times. Lots of food options on the beach and everyone is so nice. The rooms are great - we stayed in a 2 bedroom which has a great sized living room and awesome balcony (there is even a second smaller one off the master). The only thing is it took us a while to figure out the A/C and we never figured out how to turn it off. The best part of Playa Linda was absolutely the people who work there. The housekeeping staff and support staff are super friendly and clearly really hardworking. I’m going to mention some of the people that made our trips really special, and if you go, definitely lookout for them! Reah in the lobby bar has an amazing youthful spirit and her Bloody Mary is out of this world. She is such a sweetheart and you must stop by to say hi and maybe have an impromptu dance party! Love Reah and can’t imagine our vacation without breakfasts with her! Junior Lawrence the bellman is awesome and helped us find a Jeep rental last minute (OffRoad Evolution, they were awesome). He is just always a friendly face around the lobby and would help us whenever he could! Bernie takes over for Reah in the evenings in the lobby bar and is such a fun time! Ask him to make you a custom drink and you won’t regret it! Don’t be afraid to get specific!! Honestly, the lobby bar isn’t the central place (bc it’s not on the beach) but we would find ourselves going there specifically to get drinks from Reah and Bernie throughout the day because they just bring great energy and great times. Last but not least, and I’m sad to say I forgot his name, but the good sir who works the beach bringing drinks and food from Carlito’s beach shack (often found wearing a Red Sox t shirt, baseball cap, sunglasses) is a rockstar. He is always in great spirits and does right by every drink he brings. Such a nice man and really doing a lot out there in the sun!

It’s always great to go back home to Playa Linda. It’s been our second home for the last 20 years. We are excited see see the Bar Tender Reshape Delos Santos not only in Aruba but in the whole world. I also want to thank Yvette Tromp for always making out dinner arrangements to the best restaurants. She is available all the time to lend a helping hand.

We had a studio unit that faced the pool and beach. The room had a balcony with a table and two chairs. Inside of the room there was a round dining room table with four chairs. There was a sofa on one wall with a coffee table in front of it and a television mounted on the opposite wall. There was a dresser on the wall with the television and a double closet on the same wall. The room had a queen size bed in the room and a kitchenette. The bathroom had a large walk in shower. The resort had three bars (lobby, pool and beach). There was a restaurant on property. Out in the front of the resort were different restaurants to eat in. The resort was kept very clean. The beach was clean and the waves were very small. There were over 100 chickees on the beach with chairs and lounges.
