    3 of the best all-inclusive resorts in Aruba

    Here’s a quick breakdown of three of the best all-inclusive resorts in Aruba. 

    (P.S.: looking for adventure in Aruba outside the resorts? Check out our guide.)

    1. Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive: a laid-back, family-friendly resort in Oranjestad

    If you’re looking for a lovely, family-friendly all-inclusive resort in Aruba that puts the focus on enjoying this gorgeous tropical island, Tamarijn Aruba is an excellent choice, and guests here also get access to Tamarijn's sister resort, the Divi.

    Fora Advisor Erica Floyd says, "the two resorts are only separated by a five-minute walk. The 'Tam side' has three of the most popular restaurants between the two resorts, including the infamous bunker bar."

    Erica also notes, "the Tamarijn side has all beach front rooms. There’s plenty of palapas at the beaches on these two properties. There are eight bars and 11 restaurant choices on site, as well as buffet options for each meal to keep you well fed! There are also four pools, plenty of bars, and a shuttle service between the two properties if you don’t feel like walking!"

    2. Divi Aruba All Inclusive Resort: Tamarijn Aruba’s upscale sister resort

    As noted, Divi Aruba All Inclusive Resort is Tamarijn Aruba's sister resort. The two properties share many of the same characteristics and amenities. However, Divi Aruba has much more room variety and a sandy beach (Tamarijn Aruba's beach is mostly rocky and smaller). There are a handful of high-end rooms with ocean views along with more affordable options.

    It’s also worth noting that Divi Aruba has a quieter vibe for the most part, which will likely appeal to guests seeking relaxation over adventure.

    3. Barceló Aruba - All Inclusive: one the most luxurious all-inclusive resorts in Aruba

    Lively and luxurious, Barceló is one of the newer all-inclusive resorts in Aruba. If you're looking for more lavish furnishings and better amenities in the high-rise area of Aruba, then Barcelo may be the choice for you.

    In addition to a wide variety of restaurants and bars, there’s an on-site casino, a variety of shows and contests, a fitness center and a full-service spa (which offers in-room massages, too). 

    Barceló is also found on Palm Beach, a coveted part of the island known for its ritzy resorts and beautiful ocean access.
