I booked a cash getaway through a timeshare company to stay here, and so we did not pay a fortune. We rented a car, which I recommend. It wasn’t a bad stay, but I would not stay here again. Pros - -Had kitchenette in lockoff unit (like a hotel room), although the fridge was tiny. No oven. Grill is shared and it was great to use. Staff will light it for you. -Fitness equipment was well-maintained. -Pools were both quite nice -Ample parking -Walking distance (less than 1/2 mile) to decent restaurants -Staff was friendly -Owners were friendly, and it was very much like a community -lovely hot tub (and it was really hot!!) Cons - -Too far from the beach if you don’t have a car. It would be a very long walk. We didn’t use the shuttle since we had a car. -No restaurant on site at this time -More “mature” crowd. As in Bingo crowd. -Additional fees upon check out. We knew we would pay government taxes, but we were also hit with a $55 utility charge. -studio unit has kitchenette and beds in one large area, so cooking smells will linger all night. Larger units have separate bedroom and larger kitchen. -Smoking allowed in all common areas. We didn’t have a bad stay or a bad experience by any means. We did not pay a lot to stay here, so I didn’t expect it to be 5 star accommodations. Again, highly recommend renting a car if you stay here and like to get out and go places.
Excellent value. Good location. Staff aim to please. Great pools. I would recommend this for families. You are in central location but will need car. Hotel offers shuttle to beach. Safe secure atmosphere. Clean basic rooms with nice patios.
I previously had stayed there, but things have changed for the worse.Caribbean Palm Village advertise that they have a restaurant and spa. They do not have a restaurant or spa. Really was disappointing, in the future I will not come back to Aruba or at leaset never stay at this particular resort.
Good central location with quiet clean units. Plenty of space for family. Staff very helpful with shuttle to beach. Undergoing remodel, nice new pool with restaurant soon to be completed. Parrots will greet you daily.
I am an owner and this trip was disappointing. The restaurant is not finished as planned and the owners/renters of the bar don’t have any intention of catering to the owners. The previous bar managers were friendly, accommodating and beloved in customer service for the owners versus guests. Also prices are ridiculous, especially when we all can go to the store and buy our own drinks. We were thankful we had our friends with us to distract us from the disappointment as we hung out at the beach instead of here at the resort. Next year we plan to go to an all inclusive and rent (if we can) this place.
We traveled using a timeshare swap through Interval International. Caribbean Palm Village is a small resort and is land locked so they can't expand. So, there were no high pressure sales pitches to purchase a timeshare. They have a member welcome each Sunday but there was no pressure to attend and so we skipped it. For all you timeshare people - the kitchen has the basic pots/pans/dishes. The housekeeping staff make sure that there are always 2 dishwasher soap packets when they come in each day to empty the garbage and make the beds. They also restock the soap in the bathroom. They do not stock shampoo/conditioner/lotion so bring your own. Also in the kitchen is regular dish soap and an abrasive topped cleaning sponge. There are five BBQ grills on the grounds and there are picnic tables for you to use should you decided to cook and eat outdoors. The picnic tables are not covered and we got caught in a 30 second shower one night. The resort is in the middle of some upgrades. The furniture in our unit was tired but it looked like new tile had been installed recently in the bathroom and on the floors. The chairs were hard and the cushions worn out so sitting even through dinner was hard on my back. The mattress for the pull-out couch was done and could not be used. The pools and swim-up bar are now open so we also spent time just relaxing by the pool. We were told by security that we could not use a ball in the pool. A minor irritant. The restaurant is still being remodeled so days we didn't cook in our unit we had to go off the resort to restaurants. However, there are several close by so finding food was not an issue. Also, there are several grocery stores near the resort. The closest is Fung's which carries all of the essentials. We did not find a lot of fresh meat or fruits and vegetables but there was a lot of frozen meats and canned fruit/vegetables. Palm beach is about a 30 minute walk and the resort has a shuttle that runs daily to Moomba and Eagle Beaches.
This place was not able to get our group together. They had us spread out in different buildings and it was hard getting around with the construction going on you had to go through buildings to get to the other side of the resort
Aruba is our favorite place to visit! Many renovations at the CPV. Pools updated! Restaurant being updated and CPV celebrating 30 years. We love this resort and the staff. It feels like we are visiting our second home when we come. We have been owners for 20 years and always enjoy ourselves whether we sleep in after a late night out and hit the beach early.
We arrived on a Saturday. Our room was not quite ready when we arrived, we were able to store our luggage while we waited. The resort is very quiet. It is mostly older to elderly people. My husband and I didn't mind that, as we are not the partying type. It has two pools, one was recently renovated, with a swim up bar, however, at the time, the swim up bar was not ready. They had a little arrival celebration the Tuesday of the week that we were there. By celebration, I mean, they served Kool-Aid, and had two or three appetizers. Hardly a celebration. We had requested a king size bed, but unfortunately our room had two double beds. The two Jacuzzis were very outdated, and through out the resort, there was a certain smell. I found the smell to be very displeasing. The restaurant is under construction. They provide you with a map of the resort, and surrounding restaurants and such. They state that it is all within walking distance.It is NOT walking distance from anywhere except a small shopping center, "Fung's". For basic shopping, this is pretty decent. There is a restaurant walking distance called "café 080". We went there twice. Small menu, great people, decently priced. The beaches, even the local ones, are about a 40 minute walk. I guess you could walk it, but in the heat, why would you want to? Taxi's are very prompt. Most of the taxi rides were $8, except on sundays, they were $11. On sunday, most of the island is closed. The rooms were outdated, and had the weird smell to them as well. The security guards are a joke. They're not going to protect anyone. On our first hour there, we asked directions to a nearby restaurant, and a strange man asked if he could drive us, we promptly said no. I found security to be a real issue. they provide you with towels, that you can take to the beach. However, once you get to the beaches, the time share leeches realize which hotel you are staying at, and contact you at the hotel incessantly. The only saving grace, was the pools. Also, the people were very kind and friendly.
Dirty, unpretentious, old-fashioned. Despite all this the staff kind and friendly, but what this does not repair on the circumstances. The man does not wait for this for this much money. View onto the ghetto, daytime noise because of the renovations. Disappointment
