We have been traveling and using time share resorts for many years. The La Cabana was one of our best experiences. We love the sun, sand and water and the La Cabana provided all of that. The pool was great and we loved the easy access to the beach.

The negatives
1. There was no wifi for the entire week unless you were upstairs in their lobby. Also out of the five computers for customers to use, generally only one was working.
2. Our dishwasher leaked all over the place 3 times. 2 times they said they fixed it, but obviously it was not.
3. Customer service was not helpful on requests for items for the room.
4. Restaurant options lacked selection and taste, so ended up going to town to eat.
5. Very old customer base does not allow for much night life

The positives
1. Resort is on a great beach
2. Grounds are well taken care of
3. Room was in great shape, except our dishwasher of course :)
4. Concierge desk was knowledgeable and very helpful.

Aruba is beautiful and is well worth a trip to see, but do your research before selecting your location.

We stayed at La Cabana in March and had a wonderful time. The resort was clean and the staff very friendly. The restaurant was had delicious food and very reasonably priced. Momma Jean at concierge was beyond helpful. We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit and had more than enough room. We cannot wait to go back. We had a wonderful view and enjoyed having coffee on the balcony in the morning.

Room Tip: If you want to see action ask for pool view. We stayed on the garden view side 2nd floor 1 bedroom u...

Dates: Sun 4/27/2014 - Sun 5/4/2014

I like this property. The welcome committee is very helpful. They are actual with Blue Green Resorts. My husband and I own a timeshare in Mexico, which we did not did not directly exchange for this property. We used an Interval International certificate instead which afforded us a really good rate for a one bedroom unit at this resort.

We did attend a timeshare presentation and received $125 in vouchers toward a car rental and dinner. I must say that these presenters are not pushy. They make their best offer and if you bite, fine; if not fine. I must admit we did like that a yacht program is included and you have access to rent a private yacht with captain and chef for a reasonable fee.

The property is located in the low rise area and is directly across from Tropicana. You can literally walk outside one front door straight across to the other. Learned the history and this was once all one property - La Cabana and Tropicana.

The positive side of this property is Eagle Beach and a leisurely, quiet pace.

The "negative" is the night life. The high rise area has all the "action" - restaurants, music, dancing, casino, shopping. That area goes strong until at least 2:00 a.m. if not longer.

The rooms are OK. From the hallway, you enter into the bedroom first. There is a bed, dresser, wall-mounted TV (32"), two night stands, sliding glass door closet. Continue straight and there is a bathroom which has a sink, toilet and shower stall. The soap and shampoo are in wall mounted dispensers. They use Aruba Aloe products which left my skin super smooth and well hydrated.

Continue straight and you're in the living room/kitchen. There is a wall-flushed dining table above which there is a wall-mounted TV (32"). There is also a sofabed and one chair. There is a sliding glass door that leads to a small balcony.

The grounds are nice as is the pool. The sundry shop is very overpriced, so save your money and go to the SuperFoods store which is right behind Tropicana. I preferred the food at Tropicana - Pizza Bob. But that's just me.

Would I stay here again? Yes if I could not find a similar-priced resort in the high rise area.

Suggestion if you stay here: Rent a car if you don't want to rely on a bus schedule. Car rental is cheaper than taxis and a half of tank of gas lasted us a week and we saw almost the entire island.

Room Tip: 4th floor, room 420 is used as a demo for timeshare presentations - excellent view of the water I...

I called this place a nursing home the entire 6 days that I was there.

Pros:

Nice grounds
Friendliest concierge staff ever! (Pam Williams is the absolute best!!! Emir, Paola and Mac Gregor as also extremely helpful and will help you locate the "fun")
Great views of the pool


Cons:
This is not a happening place - at all
65+ crowd - galore
NO parties, shows, entertainment on the resort - the daily hi-light is 2pm bingo
Drinks are weak. Happy hour specials are only on frozen strawberry daquiries and frozen pina coladas
Food sucks at all of their restaurants. Nothing exotic - pure blandness. I guess to cater to the core clientele who can not handle spice, salt or pepper.

'Clean' towels ALWAYS have hair on them - just gross

Sofa bed will KILL your back. The coils visibly jut out. Leave the cushions on and sleep on it as a couch. The floor is softer than that darn sofa bed.

Glitz casino is crap. Take a walk down the way to the Tropicana's casino - strong drinks and much better vibe

Don't stay here if you're under the age of 40 or if you like to have a good time. There's no good time to be had here whatsoever.

Front desk staff are miserable except for a few. Nighttime desk clerk (Kirk) will run you in circles before doing even the simplest things for you, like make a phone call to order food.

Horrible, horrible. Stay elsewhere or look into a hotel downtown.

Room Tip: Higher floors seem to have better views. Try to get a room closer to the elevator Don't...

We were very pleased with the resort. We swapped our timeshare out and stayed in a one bedroom. The room was updated and clean. The resort had a lot of activities going on all the time and a large fun pool with a large bar at it and several happy hours with two for one drinks. Live music started every afternoon at 4:00 and they were great! The beach was beautiful and we never got to the pool or beach real early and still got good seats. The lobby was really nice with a lot of helpful people and you could rent a car there. There are a few shops and small restaurants on the resort. We ate at the fancier outside restaurant that overlooked the ocean and it had great food and a beautiful view. We have swapped our timeshare out at many places and felt like this was one of the best. We will defiantly go back. The only draw back that I should warn you about is the bedroom is right when you walk into the unit so it is close to the outside hallway and since the pool bar is open late people come by very loud until all hours of the night. This happened every night we were there sometimes until 3:00am. It probably didn't help that we were right near the elevators. The pull out couch in our living area was much quieter place to sleep but the bed springs squeaked every time you rolled over. It was better suited for the children. This is the only reason why I wouldn't give it a five star rating. It would help if the management could maybe put some security in the hallways at night to make sure people were more quiet when arriving home.

Room Tip: You may want to get a studio rather then a one/two bedroom since the layout of the room has the bedr...
