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!
