I have been coming to the Playa Linda for over ten years now. It is located on Palm Beach. We have met so many new people that are here at the same time as we are. We have fourteen people who are here on weeks 30/31 between friends and family.

The staff at the Playa Linda are second to none. Our housekeeper Cecilia Charles, is the best. If there is anything that we need, she is always there to get us through our two week stay. My compliments to the Manager, Steven Marra, for his outstanding staff. Mr. Marra took over the management of the Playa Linda Last year and has been very visible on the property. He is always available. Under his direction along with our Board of Directors, we are constructing a new pool and lobby.

The property has four bars and the Beach Bar is where we go during the afternoon Happy Hour. Sassy the barmaid is the best on the Beach. Her drinks are totally awesome. No one makes a better drink than Sassy.

We have five different places to eat on the property. Azzurro's Italian Restaurant is my favorite and is located on the pool deck. Dennis is the manager there and makes certain that everyone has a great experience. There is the Pool Bar that I stop at in the evenings and have a drink with Arlene the barmaid. She makes the best white Sangria around.

This resort is a fine choice for those who want to be in the midst of the action. It is very busy on the beach as well as on the street, surrounded by restaurantsj, a mall, etc. For those who choose to be in a little more quiet, relaxing atmosphere this is not the end of the island you want to be.
I have been going to Aruba for the past 30 years and like the low rise time shares & hotels but the younger set I'm sure like activities. The water sports are right next door, beach bars, etc.

Room Tip: Beach front to enjoy the view as well as sunsets.

Playa Linda is located along the Palm Beach strip that is very commercial but this resort is low key and welcoming for its guests and residents. Besides being the best managed property I have ever stayed in, personnel are friendly and go out of their way to make each and every day exceptional for its guests. We are in a two bedroom, two bath unit with a spacious wrap around terrace that looks out over the pool and the vista of green/blue water full of inviting water activities each and every day.The unit is fully furnished with the expected amenities, has a well equipped kitchen, with housekeeping daily and a wonderful beach to relax and soak up the "happy island" ambiance. This is indeed a home away from home and is definitely a place to return to more than once or twice. (Hopefully this review does not bring too many more people to this hidden gem in the future.)

Room Tip: All units appear to be comfortable with pleasant views. The higher floor units have water views.

This resort was a great choice. We had a good room with a great view. The site was on the ocean in the high rise section of resorts. The cab ride for 2 from the airport was $28 one way. Make sure you find Scott's Brats for some cheap great food by the pool or beach. One thing I did not like is the only time they play music by the pool is when they have a water aerobics class. When you walk down the beach path by all the other pools they have a much more fun atmosphere and one that I am more used to at resorts by the beach and pool. One thing I did notice was that we could hear quite a bit through the walls. In the morning if we were trying to sleep in the people above us were sure to rearrange the breakfast table or slam the cubards while cooking. At night there were the screaming kid running down the hall or the drunk guy.

The view was terrific, and for me that is what accommodations are all about.
The furnishing could have been cleaner and updated. But not bad. Did have to call housekeeping to wash floor(dirty) did responded right away. Staff were polite but not that friendly.

Room Tip: The high , the better view. Sunsets are spectacular . Bring a camera.

I've been going to Playa Linda for six years and my kids have been going to the Kid's club. They love it. Valery, Yadira, Christina are simply the BEST!!! They plan exciting events everyday for the kids and the kids have such fun there. On Fridays they host a talent show that all the kids are involved in.

Room Tip: Pick rooms that face the pool. All of the rooms have ocean views.
