For guests intending to stay at Palm Aruba Condos Resort
IS THERE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION TO GET TO PALM ARUBA CONDOS RESORT? SHOULD I PLAN ON RENTING A CAR?
While there are plenty of public transportation options that go to the big-name resorts and five-star condos (most of which are only a 10-minute walk from Palm Aruba Condos Resort), none specifically stop at or pass in front of our location. Taking a taxi is also an option. Palm Beach is just a short walk from Palm Aruba Condos Resort. If you want maximum flexibility to get around to all parts of One Happy Island during your stay, we do recommend renting a car. We’re happy to assist you with this.
WHERE CAN I RENT A CAR? CAN YOU HELP ME DO THIS?
Palm Aruba Condos Resort has great relationships with local vehicle rental companies, so we’re happy to help out with your car rental reservation. When booking your stay at Palm Aruba Condos Resort, be sure to mention that you’d like us to arrange for a rental vehicle and we’ll send you an email with information about the various vehicles available and what they cost so you can make your selection. You’ll also need to let us know your flight arrival data (airline, flight number, arrival date/time). Your condo reservation will serve to secure your car rental reservation. We will then make all the necessary arrangements and confirm everything with you via email. We’ll also supply you with contact information for the vehicle rental company should you need it. There is plenty of free, secure parking available on-site at Palm Aruba Condos.
CAN YOU PROVIDE AIRPORT TRANSPORTATION?
If you decide you do not want to rent a car for your stay on our One Happy Island, we can make arrangements for one of our trusted taxi service providers to pick you up at the airport and bring you to Palm Aruba Condos Resort. While we can make sure a taxi is waiting for you, it will be up to you to submit your (cash) payment to the taxi for your ride. Regulatory taxi fares are applicable; there is no extra charge for this service. This will only avoid you from waiting in queue for a taxi cab (maximum of 5 passengers per cab), but there are ample taxi cabs available at the airport’s arrival hall. The fare includes 1 large luggage piece per passenger; hand luggage is not counted. Large luggage pieces in excess are charged at about $2 each.
HOW CLOSE ARE YOU TO THE BEACH?
Getting to the beach from Palm Aruba Condos Resort couldn’t be easier. Just exit the premises of the complex and it’s one straight walk to the left! The walk is only a little more than 1 kilometer (six-tenths of a mile), which takes most people less than 15 minutes. By car, it’s just a few minutes, and bicycling would be an option as well.

All the Aruban beaches have straw cabanas (huts) and palapas available for public use on a first-come-first-served basis (like Arashi Beach, Eagle Beach, Baby Beach). At the exquisitely designed exclusive pool at Palm Aruba Condos, there are plenty of shade umbrellas and lounge chairs available for our guests.
