La Cabana Beach Resort & Casino
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 19, 2011

Since there are quite a lot of reviews stating how nice La Cabana is, I am going to give you some hints that I wish I had known before we hit the Island. We packed as much dry goods as we could to help on the food expense and just had to go to the market just once for the whole week. We decided not to rent a car and used public transportation for the week. A taxi is $25.00 from the airport to the resort, $25.00 back. The rest of the week we used the bus, which was very cheap. The resort offers a meal plan, you have to ask for it at the desk as it is not advertised. Every place accepts USD, but I would take as many smaller bills and coinage that you can to cut down on Arubian money that you may receive in change. Of course, we used whatever Arubian change we received as our tip for the cleaning staff. We didn't want to pay for internet, so we would take our iPod touches and laptops down by the swimming area and got onto the Manor's network. It was just enough to keep in touch with the US. This was our first time going but it won't be the last. Next time, we will have a better idea of what to bring and what to do.

Room Tip: A studio has just as much space as a 1 bedroom.

Eagle Beach is lovely, and directly across the street from resort, a very short quick walk. Our first time to Aruba, and also to resort. Went through Interval. Had a one bedroom, with a kitchen, newly remodeled. Hallways and some grounds need updating, and a casino is being built. Everything was so clean, rooms spotless, bathrooms by pool the same. Fun happy hour! 2 for 1 drinks from 4 to 6 and music, and some evenings had music. Bar crew is great, helpful, fun! People at resort were all ages, young, middle and older, and everyone was friendly. Halloween and cultural nights were good times - music and dancing. Food at restaurant in resort was very good and reasonable prices. All and all, we would return to LaCabana again in a minute!!!

Room Tip: Depends on if come through a time share trade, Thursday rooms usually are in back/sides of resorts...

This resort has the best beach on the island of Aruba. However, you need to get up early and get your spot on the beach at 6:30AM if you want a beach umbrella.
The rooms have been upgraded and seem much better. Still some major work to do with halls and building exterior.
A nice feature outside are the many gas grills the guests can use to prepare food.
Beware: You will not find a napkin, paper towel or anything like that in the Kitchens!
Happy Hour bratenders have a difficult time keeping up.
Happy Hour entertainment is Outstanding most of the days when they bring in "Live" Entertainment. DJ music not as good.

Room Tip: Not all rooms ahve a good view of the Ocean. Higfher floors are better for views.

They have recently completed a major renovation project, and it really shows. The rooms are well appointed and very clean. The staff, as always, very helpful. One of the best bar crews anywhere we have been. Great happy hours (2-for-1 pina coladas and daiquiries from 2pm to 3pm, 2-for-1 almost anything from 4pm to 6pm). Great live music in the evening with very good performers, and there was a rockin' Halloween party while we were there. Just a few steps from the beach where we relaxed in the sun, or under a cabana free of charged and not hassled by vendors. Keep in mind, if you decide to go for the welcome package which, when we were there, included $100 toward dinner at a local restaurant, you will first have to go through a time-share presentation which can last several hours. This is totally optional. We will return to this property again on our next visit to Aruba.

We have been owners at the resort since 2000. The resort has just finished updating all the rooms over a 2 year period. The rooms were gutted to cement and redone top to bottom. This year we booked a getaway through interval and stayed in a Studio. The room itself was very clean and maid service is daily with 2 days being only for trash and a light cleaning. The maids always do a great job.

The resort itself is getting a Casino installed in the lobby and should be open soon.
The pool area is nice and the bar is right there with happy hours 2 times a day, The beach is one of the nicest I have ever been on and is right across the street. Even though the resort was full there was never a problem getting a chair right at the water under a palapa. If your a late riser you may be back a little but there is plenty of room on the beach.

Overall great location, right between the high and low rises, right on Eagle beach. 2 dollars gets you down town or to the high rises and the Las Ramblas right on sight is a great dinner for the price. Also a new grocery store is going right across the street so no more 10 dollar cab ride there. We have been to Aruba 11 times and only rented a car 1 time. Its all personal preference.

Visited Aruba 10/7-10/14/2011 with relatives, Brother in law provided 1 bedroom suites through timeshare swaps. Resort is close to airport and only a $22 (US D) cab ride. Cab drivers a great talk to them they give you good tips on whatever you want to know especially restaurants in my case. I like to try local foods and local style of cooking when on vacation he recommended The Arabian Chef. Listen to them! They want you back.
The resort, although "long in the tooth" is very pleasant, and one can see an update in progress. Rooms are comfortable, clean and well maintained. Sure there are some minor things, but considering the age everything is more than satisfactory. There is construction at this time which does not interfere with the pleasurable atmosphere of the resort.
Eagle beach is the best Aruba has to offer. There are plenty of palapas for everyone. the only criticism I have is that some guests (probably with insomnia) get up a 6 AM put some towels under a shelter and leave it there for the rest of the day without showing up, so no one else can use it. Not nice or fair.. After a reasonable amount of time, just tell the beach chair person and move it he will hold onto their stuff.
Aruba has some great restaurants. Our itinerary of dining was outstanding. Fri 10/7 Smokey Joe's, Sat 10/8 Wacky Wahoo, Sun 10/9 De Suikertuin (brunch) Cuba's Cookin, Mon 10/10
Amuse Bistro, 10/11 Arabian Chef ( lunch) Carte Blanche ***** 10/12 Barefoot, 10/13 Flying Fishbone. 10/14 Back to reality! I am reviewing restaurants individually.
Beach is fantastic, beach bar overpriced, but that's what you pay for a day in paradise. Pool bar was not impressive nor were the drinks to me it was a little seedy.
Good points were the concierge desk. They did everything to accommodate and please. The timeshare people left you alone if you told them you were not interested. The beach, the beach, the beach. Very friendly and pleasant staff. Cinnabon in lobby smell is great. Good value.
Not so good, restaurants and bars in the resort. Rooms need updating, but acceptable. There is a charge for internet service in room; $35 USD for a week which had issues, and no service for 3 of the 7 days. no refund.
Excellent vacation, relaxing, good value, a good place to stay, a world class beach.

Room Tip: Upper floors are quieter.

First the positives: Great location, friendly staff, nice room accommodations, nice pool, nice bar with live music daily. Negatives: We had a room that overlooked ongoing construction, locks on the rooms were being upgraded while we were there and as the original installation of the lock did not work they wasted nearly 2 hours of our time before it was fixed. I don't understand why this type of repair needed to be done in the middle of the week while the room was occupied, as it is a timeshare resort when everyone check in and out on specific days. Repairs could have been arranged between occupancies. Also, the staff at the desk were totally unapologetic about the inconvenience.
