Just returned from a 9 day stay...We had a great vacation...This was our 3rd visit and would not consider going elsewhere...Had to change rooms after the first week and the staff took care of this without a hitch, all while we were on the beach! Junior Violenus at the desk was very accommodating...loved the beach bar staff...Everyone at Azzuro restaurant was great and the food better...Hope to return again next year!

Stayed: January 2014, traveled with family

I went to the Playalinda website they have a Bulletin Board so owners can put their Units up for rent by the week !!
I rented one with no problem... great price, loved it,
much nicer than staying in a Hotel room and much less expensive !!
Can't wait to go back,
Best Location on Aruba !!

We have stayed at Playa Linda (renting not owning) four times. It is now the only place in Aruba that we consider. This year we stayed two weeks. The facility is clean, updated, offers may conveniences including pools, bingo, aerobics, exercise room, self-service laundry, convenience store in lobby. But, I must comment on the staff. Everyone we met was friendly, helpful, competent, and tried to make our stay as good as possible. Little questions or issues always occur, but their attitude is how can we help you. The beach is fantastic, the restaurant and bar are better than expected. Finally, the process to contact an owner that wants to rent (through their bulletin board) and verifying that they actually own that week works very easily. We then pay the owner the negotiated amount they email Playa Linda and check-in from there on works easily. We will continue to come back to Playa Linda. They really have a great facility and it's location is very convenient. We never rent a car. Most places to go and eat are in walking distance. Cab rides to other "special" restaurants are about $10 each way. My only concern about writing such a glowing review is that too many people will start going and it will be hard for us to get a room in the future :))

Room Tip: Look for a room that overlooks BOTH the pool and the ocean. Pay less if it doesn't.

This was our first time to Aruba and we traveled with our grandmother and mother. I was concerned because of the reviews of the water and the chickee/palapa claiming process but it all worked out fine. If you want "front row" you get up at some crazy hour in the morning. If you want one of the next rows, you get there before 8 (we were last row a few days which is about 20 steps from front row). You put your stuff down, someone brings (Santiago or Tommy) by the lounge chairs and then you give someone with the clipboard the number of the table you've reserved. I really didn't care that we weren't front row. It was just perfect being there and away from the polar vortex.
The staff was attentive, the people were nice. People of all ages were at this place and I also noticed it's handicap accessible. The place we rented directly from the owner was beautiful. Cleaning staff came every day with clean towels. They had a juice bar right on premise and also the real bar had happy hour specials pretty much all day long. This place is in the middle of everything.
The beach is beautiful and you can walk to all the other hotels and rent all kinds of things to use in the water (floats were available at our own hotel). We took a catamaran tour with the Octopus which was perfect because he takes out small groups and you meet him on the beach directly in front of the Playa Linda...no car needed. The water is a pretty blue. I understand what people are saying when they say it's not "clear" but I think that's because the sand is so fine. In other islands the sand is heavier and sinks to the bottom.
Overall it was a great trip and we hope to return. My only comment as far as making things better was that maintenance sometimes did not answer the phone. We told them we got locked out in the back (the key did not work to let you in that way) and they never came back to fix it.

Room Tip: Claim your palapa in the morning. I think you can leave it for 2 hours once they have your name on...

Have been staying at the Playa Linda for the last 12 years and we love it. Before we bought there for a few years we rented from owners that were not able to use their units and it was a lot more reasonable and more spacious then a hotel room? Great location no rental car needed and the people very friendly, staff and vacationers. Check out their web site Playa Linda Aruba and see what the owners have for rentals

Definitively a beautiful place to stay. We exchanged into the Playa Linda with Interval. Originally a spot opened up at the Marriott Ocean Club though was gone by time we tried booking it and then this came up.

Location wise the Playa Linda us great. Beautiful beach and smack in the middle of Palm Beach. Shopping strip right across the street. (Marriott a bit more secluded off to the north along with the Ritz although also nearby).

Was great because it was also close to the Chabad center where we ate Shabbat meals.

The rooms were nice and well maintained though nothing extremely fancy. Modern plasmas, American appliances, comfortable bed and couch.
Def would recommend.

Steps to the best beach in Aruba, sand never gets hot, water perfect, leave from the other side of the resort and you are in a shopping area and never the twain mix.
Resort also has probably the best Italian restaurant Azzuros, great food and service, great ocean view.
Rooms are larger than hotel rooms and 1 bedroom (and up) units have besides living room, bedroom a full working kitchen.
Perfect for a family vaccation

Room Tip: check out view from room on their website, ocean views are the better units
