This place is incredible. Awesome view of the beach, it’s a must if you’re coming to baby beach. Try the wings and their margaritas / Pina Calada are delicious. Nice staff. 10/10 would recommend.

Cool hangout near Baby Beach to enjoy a cocktail and get out of the sun. They have a small pool you can cool off in with great views of Baby Beach. Most importantly they have the best Pina Colada on the island which they call...the Baby Beach.More

We loved Rum Reef until March 15th 2020 when we were treated rudely by a bartender. Been coming to Aruba for 40 years and have been so impressed by the friendliness and care of the service industry. Rum Reef has a beautiful infinity pool and...patio overlooking Baby Beach and a $15/person minimum purchase to step into that patio. We respect management’s right to restrict use but the bartender became extremely upset and down right rude. . After spending several hundred dollars on drinks there the week before I walked in with my Kansas City Chiefs clothes and was greeted by some Chicago friends who love Mahomes. I stepped out by the pool and was visiting with them and my wife and daughter were told to get me back inside and were very rudely treated that I was out there and had not bought a drink. It did not get any better when I approached the bartender to explain the situation. Our Happy Island does not need a person like this in a customer service position and we will not enter that bar again if they are behind it.More

Gorgeous area to enjoy wonderful drinks. But, still no food available as of end of January! They have been working on a kitchen since last Summer! There is a restaurant down stairs that was good. There is a $15.00 minimum drink charge to enjoy this...fantastic relaxing infinite pool at Baby Beach! Staff is attentive and friendly! The breezes through the open air bar are lovely! There is plenty of shade and lounge chairs to enjoy the sun! 5* for this Gem! Adults Only!More

Great addition to Baby Beach area. Amazing view from the bar. Maureen and her staff are very friendly. Maureen makes the best Monkey Juice drink.

We spent a couple of hours here enjoying the cocktails and the Infinity Pool. What a treasure! Great staff, great music, beautiful views, gorgeous pool. Adults only upstairs. I almost don't want to share the secret of this treasure!

Rum Reef is located upstairs and is adults only. Great drinks and service. The infinity pool is amazing! Been here many times. But stay away from the restaurant downstairs (Lago Colony), it’s not affiliated with Rum Reef and bad service.

We just found Rum Reef on a day trip to Baby Beach and I am so glad we did! Highly Recommend! We will return!

What an excellent addition to the Baby Beach area! If you think the area can't get any prettier take a look at those shots people share here from the pool and the Rum Reef patio... but this place isn't just the stop for a quick...dip in the pool (although super refreshing) and a shot for the family album :) It serves really nice cocktails and provides a cool hang out spot with some music/lounge type of area, and although we originally planned to lunch here we sadly we weren't hungry at the time and went for 2 rounds of drinks instead :) definitely would return to try the food as the place is super nice and the folks that work there are really nice people TIP: the access to the pool is $15 per person or if you buy $15 or more worth of drinks if that helpsMore
