We purchased at La Quinta pre construction in 1986, and have vacationed there 25 times.If you want to do nothing but relax and enjoy the sun, the ocean and peace and quiet.... It is the place to be. We see the same people each year, and we refer to each other as family. We have friends that stay elsewhere on the island, and we hear stories about being on the beach at 5:30 am to get a spot, and how people fight over chairs.. Not at La Quinta. It is bare bones, not much luxury, great staff, clean, and most of all quiet.

Room Tip: Stay in phase 1 if possible

Love staying at this resort, every year. We started exchanging over 10 years ago there, and decided to buy at La Quinta 6 years ago. Love it. We are a vacation family there. We are greeted with love and respect from all the management staff. Valerie cipriano

Room Tip: All the accommodations are very nice and close to the beach

The La Quinta is a clean no frills resort. The staff is friendly and helpful with reservations and arranging taxi cabs for nights down at the high rise area. (It was a $9.00 cab ride to get there). The pool is nice and kept up, the grounds are a work in progress. The bar and it's new manager are the bomb, Mark, Daniel, and Danny are the draw there. They are some of the nicest people on the island. I brought them some pennants from both Chicago baseball teams, they put them up right away. Eagle beach is awesome, no crowds, no roped off swimming areas, no fuel smell, just solitude! The rooms have full kitchens for meals the way you want. If you don't want to leave the beach or pool, just whip something up! We cooked up on the grill at the Eagles Nest up on the 3rd floor near the elevator. We made sure the food would be done right after a sensational sunset. We would watch the sun just drop into the ocean! We are purchasing a unit just for those reasons!

Room Tip: If you are a late sleeper, try not to get one near the bar. The hustle starts there at about 7:30 AM...

we purchased a time share at La Quinta 20 years ago. We haven't been back in 18 years. The place stayed dated with little details that could use attention. To get to the beach you have to cross the street - but the beach is beautiful and less crowded then other places in Aruba. The staff at the desk were more then friendly and very helpful.

Overall if you like quiet and low key La Quinta is a good choice. If you want more modern and more activities the high rise hotels would be the place to stay.

Room Tip: executive suites are a loft style - so you don't have total privacy from anyone sleeping on the...

This was our first trip to Aruba and LaQuinta helped to make it a memorable visit. The staff and excellent front office people treated us like friends. Eagle beach is a beautiful area and the quiet beach was perfect for us. The week went too fast, but we will definitely be returning next year! The high rise area is a great place but you return home to LaQuinta.

Quiet, friendly place. No bells and whistles, but no hassles getting a chair by the pool or a spot on Eagle Beach. Eagle Beach is rated one of the top 10 beaches in the world, according to the Travel Channel. Excellent staff from the office people to the maintenance crew. Units are kept immaculately daily. You can have the high rise hotels. Give me La Quinta in the low rise section anytime.

If you are looking for wall to wall people on over crowded beaches, too many people vying for a lounge and having to pay for a Palapa, La Quinta is not for you. My husband and I have been coming to La Quinta for ten years. The first 4 years we stayed for 2 weeks but then decided to purchase a 3rd week since we enjoyed the layed back atmosphere of the resort. We have made so many new friends there that it is a mini reunion with our friends each year. The resort is located on Eagle Beach which is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and the best part is we have it all to ourselves, no crowds. The staff is extremely friendly and the new owners of the bar and coffee shop Kini Kini are doing a great job. Happy hour at Kini Kini is always fun to meet at after a day at the beach or by the pool. With only 52 units it is a little bit of paradise.

Room Tip: Our units are in Phase II which has a bigger pool and the rooms have larger kitchens but the units i...
