This hotel was fine for families as most of the guests were there with kids. If you didn't have kids then the property was "just okay". The beach was fine but the sounds of jackhammering at the hotel drove us away from it. Nothing like the tranquility of the ocean with construction sounds all around. It wasn't for us, but if you have kids, it may be for you.

We rented the townhouse on this resort from a timeshare owner. The room was impressive, (granite countertops, nice furniture, beautiful tile) cleaning service daily except Thursdays, kids club on site with daily activities and night time theme nights for the kids 3 times a week which gave us the opportunity to enjoy adult only dinner from 7-10 p.m.!!!! The beach was of course beautiful, warm water, sandy and clean. Resort pool has a zero depth entry which was great for the younger ones. Rooms are equipped with stove and refrigerator and even the smallest studio was larger than a normal hotel room. We don't want to stay anywhere else, most certainly our home away from home!

Everything about our trip is amazing..location, rooms, food, weather but, if i had to say one bad thing about Playa Linda is that the hunts on the beach need to be reserved very early in the morning at like 5:00am otherwise you cannot sit by the beach....I felt that getting up early on our vacation was not a pleasant feeling...compeeting against all the old folks that get up soooo early to reserve the hunts was not a fun!! The resort should have priority reserves for the families that have kids so that they may watch over them closly by the beach for safety reasons. Otherwise, this is the Mercedez of all the hotels in Aruba!!! Can't wait to go back :)

Playa Linda Beach Resort is one of the best hotels in Aruba. It sits on the best stretch of Palm Beach next to the Hyatt Hotel. All the rooms have been refurbished this year and are wonderful. The rooms are very clean and appliances are new. All units have either a kitchenette (studios) or full kitchens. The beach is a few steps from the hotel. This beach is the best in Aruba!! Water is calm and a beautiful turquoise color - almost doesn't look real from the balcony! The pool here has recently been upgraded and has a waterfall.
They have many amenities here including manager's cocktail night, barbeque night, 3 restaurants, happy hour on the beach, etc. etc.
I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel as I really could not find anything wrong with it! You will not be disappointed if you stay here!!!

Aruba was our honeymoon and it was a great vacation! We ended up at the Playa Linda after a last minute change to our reservations and we sure are glad that we did! The staff were friendly from check-in to check-out. The restaurants on-site were great, especially Azzurro (which we ate at twice, along with their sister restaurant off-site, Daniel's). The coffee shop out in front of the hotel was FANTASTIC and the service all around from the clothing stores to the concierge was top-notch. We loved the pool with it's cascading waterfall and off course, the magnificent beach and views of the water. Our room was clean and comfortable with just the right amount of space for a studio, including the kitchenette and full-size refrigerator. We can't say enough good things about this resort and are definitely looking forward to returning!!
