This village was close enough to the high rise hotels but away from traffic and noise. The place was clean and in good condition. Personnel was very helpful and provided all the information I asked for. My family and I enjoyed visiting the restaurants and places close by.

Along with my wife and myself, we stayed at the Palm Village with some friends in a two bedroom apartment. The apartment was very nice, well equipped with everything one would need. It was very clean and kept up on a daily basis. Check in and out was easy and the staff very friendly. My wife had a massage which she said was one of the best she has ever had. The pool and hot tub was kept very clean, even though one of the hot tubs didn't work all the time. The highlight to the whole vacation and staying at the resort was going to Sweet Peppers to eat. The food was outstanding and you received a good size portion. My wife had the grouper sever times, I enjoyed the all you can eat ribs they serve on a special day. Besides the food, the staff at Sweet Peppers made the experience eating there a memorable one. Jose and his staff were tops. Now to the But... part of the title of my review. The only downfall to staying at the resort is trying to get around, especially to the beaches or into Oranjestad. It is about a mile away from the beaches so walking is probably not recommended. The shuttle that the resort has only makes 2 trips to the three beaches that they use, that is if the driver will take you too any of the three. He was not the friendliest person we met there. So unless you rent a car, travel is either by cab or bus. The bus service to the area where the resort is located is not totally reliable. We traveled by cab most of the time which worked pretty good. The main problem is that it seemed that each driver would charge us a different fee...even though supposedly the fees were set by the government. They would also charge for groceries or other packages we would have. All in all though, we enjoyed our stay in Aruba. The beaches were beautiful.

We came to Aruba for a destination wedding which was at the Ritz but couldn't afford staying there. We found this property online through tripadvisor and were very pleased at the price for a two bedroom accommodation. When we arrived we found the rooms to be larger than expected--two bedrooms with a living room suite in-between. The staff were very friendly and helpful and although this was definitely not the Ritz, we were very happy with our stay there. While not right on the beach, it was only a short drive to any of the famous beaches. Be aware that there are additional government taxes that you have to pay over and above the advertised price--typical for any hotel.

Maintenance, Housekeeping and Front desk staff great! We had A/C issues, ice maker broken and dishwasher flooded. Staff was there quickly to remedy except the A/C took 2 days to fix. I had to ask twice to get a discount on my bill and only received $62 off. Bartenders - terrible. Not friendly at all for what you pay for food and drinks. Wi-fi in room didn't work. Porch ok but disconnected continuously. Bathrooms do not look like the pictures. In my 2 Bedroom the door didn't open all the way, hit the towel rack and door didn't close either. Despite my problems, I would probably come back.

This was our fifth trip to Aruba and we loved staying at The Caribbean Palm Village Resort in Aruba. Rental property is very well kept, bright, spacious and comfortable. I was pleased with the kitchen and utilities. This property provided us the right amount of privacy and with the freedom to choose when, and what we wanted to eat and with close proximity to the best restaurants, activities and beaches Aruba has to offer. This home gave my friends and I more than enough space and privacy to get comfortable and relax. Close to all the attractions, easy access to amenities. Getting about by road was no problem. I would definitely recommend this vacation home.
A big shout out to David! You're the best!

We visited The Caribbean Palm Village Resort in september. We were very pleased! The staff is friendly and will help you with anything you need. The apartment was very clean, the reception called twice a week to check if everything was to our liking or if we needed anything. The only thing that really bothered me was the wifi or the lack of a good connection. But I will definitely visit here again. Plus it's close to all the great restaurants which I loved!!

I was very surprised and pleased when I walk into the the villa. Everything was well kept. I stayed with my husband and my two sons. We had a lovely stay, very spacious and comfortable. I will recommend this particular villa to family and friends it was an end unit and very private. It overlooked the road from the third floor balcony but never the less it was so breezy throughout the day. We really enjoyed our stay here and not far from downtown and other attractions.

We (2 couples, ages 23 - 28) stayed in a 2 bedroom app. for 6 days and loved it! The rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, living space were clean and tidy, ac was working perfectly, kitchen was fully equipped and, most important, the staff was very friendly. The resort is located minutes from Palm Beach, but renting a car is best! (Try Budget car rental, great car for a reasonable price.) Only downside: the wifi signal was weak in our rooms. We had to sit by the pool to get a good signal. And there was no real maid service. They did come by daily to take out the trash and refresh the bathtowels. No turndown service though. Overall a great place!!! We'll probably stay there during our next Aruba trip!

Realmente confieso que estábamos un poco preocupados porque era la primera vez que reservábamos desde este portal un hospedaje y no conocíamos el destino, pero tenemos que decir que el Caribbean realmente cubrió la expectativas a nivel de precio, comodidad y ubicación. No hay lujos pero las habitaciones son amplias, y la facilidad de contar con una cocina equipada permite comer sano aun estando de vacaciones, sobre todo cuando viajas con niños y personas mayores. De verdad una opción totalmente recomendada.

Es una excelente opción para la estadía en Aruba, las habitaciones son muy amplias, están totalmente equipadas con todo lo que se necesita para una estancia cómoda, es impresionante lo impecable de las habitaciones y de las villas en general. El servicio del personal es excelente, apenas los contactan y acuden de inmediato. En cuanto a la ubicación, recomiendo alquilar vehículo para mayor comodidad, dado que aún cuando está cerca de muy buenas playas, no veo viable irse caminando. El hotel tiene servicio de traslado a la playa pero es un sólo bus y no cubre la demanda de los huéspedes, esta es la única oportunidad que puedo decir tiene el hotel. Por todo lo demás, lo recomiendo ampliamente y no dudaría en volverme a hospedar aquí.

Dit vakantiepark is prima, hele vriendelijke medewerkers en erg geschikt voor kinderen. Maar ik had gereserveerd bij David Flak die blijkbaar via een TimeShare deze woning verhuurd. En dat was niet bepaald een succes. Bijna drie maanden voor vertrek had ik gereserveerd en de borg betaald, maar Flak had de reservering een dag van te voren doorgegeven en ook nog het verkeerde appartement gereserveerd, waarbij we een slaapkamer tekort kwamen. De eerste nacht op hele slechte bedden geslapen, maar de medewerkers van het park hebben alles gedaan wat in hun mogelijkheden lag om de pijn te verzachten. Vervolgens na 3 dagen verhuisd naar een groter appartement, helaas wel aan de achterzijde met uitzicht naar de high-rise hotels, en niet op de binnenplaats. Maar Flak was niet van plan om een korting te geven wegens alle stress en ongemak, maar liet me gewoon 3 dagen het kleinere appartement betalen en daarna de prijs voor het grotere appartement. Als ik terug kom met de kinderen zou ik best weer hier naar toe willen, maar dan in een appartement aan de binnenplaats, en ik reserveer zeker niet nog eens via David Flak.

Viaje en familia y me pareció un excelente resort, la cocina estaba equipada con todo lo necesario para hacer tu estadía cómoda y placentera, las habitaciones espaciosas y muy aseadas. Me lleve una opinión muy grata con el personal del Resort, realmente son personas muy atentas, agradables y amables, de verdad la atención del personal durante nuestra estadía fue totalmente positiva, destacando sin lugar a dudas la la Sra que el día de nuestra llegada (29/09/2015) estaba en la recepción (lamentablemente no recuerdo su nombre) pero es una persona para destacar por su disposición a colaborar con el huésped, totalmente comprometida con su labor, mis felicitaciones de todo corazón para el personal del hotel. El Resort, esta un poco alejado del centro, y de las playas, sin embargo tiene un servicio que te traslada hasta las playas totalmente gratuito. En cuanto al propietario Sr David, fue bastante amable, cordial y educado, pese a las limitaciones del idioma, resolvió de manera diligente todo lo relacionado con nuestra reservacion. No es un Resort de lujo, pero lo que si les podemos garantizar es que su estadía en este Resort sera muy agradable y cómoda. Lo recomendamos 100%, fueron unos días que aprovechamos al máximo para disfrutar y descansar.

Our party consisted of my wife and I our son and 9yr old grandson. I rented a car at the airport.
The Caribbean Palm Village was an excellent facility. It came as advertised. I had requested a two bedroom/bath unit. The Master bedroom had a King size bed with a full bath, full closet with safe. The second bedroom had two double beds, full bath, smaller closet, kitchenette and safe. The unit also had a living room with a full kitchen. Each room had a HD TV. Our room was serviced daily by Rubi and she was excellent.
The resort had two outdoor pools and jacuzzis. We ate dinner and lunch at the restaurant on several occassions, The food and the service was excellent.
The location was approximately .75mi from the beach.
We enjoyed Eagle Beach, Arashi Beach and Baby Beach.
My only suggestion is for the Resort to provide or include a detailed map for those persons who are renting a vehicle. Road and street signs are limited. Most intersections use a rotary or traffic circle. There is a sign prior to entering the circle however there are no followup signs on the exits points. So pay attention to the sign prior to entering the rotary.
US currency was accepted everywhere we went, grocery store, gas station etc.

We had a wonderful trip to Aruba. The two-room luxury villa we stayed in at the CPVR served our needs perfectly. This is not an all-inclusive resort, so if you plan on staying here, a rental car is a must. We made full use of the kitchen, buying our groceries from Super Foods (about a 5-7 minute drive from the resort). The swimming pools were in great shape and even the small workout room was in perfect working condition. Our towels were changed frequently. The bedrooms gave us nice privacy for our large group. The rooms were neat and well-taken care of. Wi-Fi worked great the entire time. The front desk was very helpful with any question we had about visiting different parts of the island. (Philip's Animal Garden was great, but the Butterfly Farm not so much). Our point of contact when we booked was David Flak. He was very helpful with questions we had about the island and resort before our trip.
The resort has an agreement with Moomba Beach. Of all the beaches we visited, we liked Moomba the least. It is small and a major tourist trap. If you have a rental car, you can make it to any beach on the island easily. Our favorite was Arashi, which is at most only 10 minutes up the road from Moomba.
If you plan on washing your hair, you'll need to take your own shampoo & conditioner. We requested a room with a poolside view, which the resort didn't grant. That was understandable as the resort was pretty full throughout the week. If you want to get a pool towel, know that they are very strict about closing the towel shack right at 5:00.

We definitely needed a hire car as this was too far from all of the beaches, restaurants etc. There are only 2 trips per day provided to the beach which isn't ideal.
The villa was much larger than expected with everything that we needed. It was a little odd that the air conditioning was controlled centrally so when we were too cold or too warm we gas to call reception who then called maintenance who adjusted a central computer - we've never had that before.
I would say this was a value for money resort.

We had an amazing stay! Our condo was beautiful and clean and all the staff were so friendly!! The condo was fully furnished and had a full kitchen which was a blessing (not that we did much cooking) but it was nice to be able to make a quick breakfast and sit on the balcony and enjoy the view while having coffee. There is a restaurant on the resort that you could go to as well, we really enjoyed the all you can eat ribs!!!
If there was one thing we were disappointed in it was the shuttle back and forth to the beach, we wish it would have gone a little more often but it only cost $8.00 for a cab ride to Moomba beach.
We will definitely be going back next year but will be staying longer than one week!!

They have a nice barbecue area. I absolutely would go back!!!! On a sidenote it's a lot more convenient to rent a car so you're able to see the island from a lot of different perspectives not just as a tourist. ENJOY!

We we're back after our last visit in 2016 and noticed some new changes. The new pool with the swim up bar was amazing. Both jacuzzi's are spacious and operational. We used the BBQ facility twice and had friends coming over on both occasions. The apartment has a well equipped kitchen. The place is a 5 minute drive away from the beach, high rise hotel area and mall. When visiting Moomba beach don't forget to show the beach chair guy your card to get free beach chairs. Will surely visit the wonderful place again!

My family of two parents and four teen/young adult children rented a two bedroom condo at Caribbean Palm Resort. We enjoyed having a kitchen so we could eat there, pack lunches or decide to eat out at local restaurants. The on-site restaurant had friendly staff, good food & prices and an open air atmosphere. The two beautiful pools in the inner courtyard were perfect for relaxing. The only thing lacking was that the hot tubs didn't have working jets. Hopefully those will be repaired soon. Our bathrooms were a little dated but certainly clean and sufficient. We'd rather have a place we can afford than have a posh condo that comes with a higher price. This location is not close enough to walk to a beach but we had already rented a van and drove to try several different beaches. We were 5-10 minutes from beaches and restaurants. We found this location very quiet and slept really well. Our view was not the gorgeous inner courtyard but we still enjoyed sitting on our balcony before heading out for the day. Laundry is available but not in each condo. Washer and dryer were $2 each and the front desk would give a token to run the machines. We packed a minimum so washing a few things was necessary but easy. The staff made our beds and cleaned our condo every day. We were able to change out our pool towels daily. There were two outdoor showers to use after the pool or what we liked was to shower off sand after coming back from the beach. This kept our condo much cleaner. We did not find the resort crowded but a nice number of guests. We talked with several very nice people. We have stayed at Diamond Resorts through my parents and this facility is comparable in every way except the slightly dated interior of the condo and a bonus: no time share sales people! For the reasonable rate we paid through Trip Advisor, we certainly got our money's worth and had a great place to make family memories. We would most definitely stay here again if we have the chance to return to Aruba.

We enjoyed our stay at caribbean palm village. The room was as pictured. If we visit Aruba again we will probably stay at a hotel closer to the beach, but this hotel was fine as long as you rent a car. The pool and on site restaurant are good, and they have some great happy hour specials. Just wish we would’ve realized it isn’t a walking distance to the beach. Luckily we rented a car. You would get more of a tourist vibe if you stayed at a hotel closer to the beach

This was our first trip to Aruba but definitely not our last! We rented a car so staying off the beach was nice for us. It’s quieter, not crowded this time of the year, and clean. We had a 2 bedroom unit as another couple came with us and we enjoyed having the living area and kitchen in the middle and the bedrooms with bathrooms on either side. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and drinking coffee every morning. We did use the pool quite a bit. It was perfect! We would have the bar by the pool for refreshments but the man behind the counter most days was rude. We went there a few times but finally bought our own soda and forgot it.
It is very safe there, and you feel very secure. There were washing machines and dryers in the end of the building which helps. No need to overpack of take home dirty clothes. I loved having it all done when I got home. They also have an area where you can go get. Book to read, or trade for a new one. They had a pretty good selection. We already plan to head back this next winter. We are already looking at new restaurants to try! See you in December!

We booked a 2/2 unit June 20-24th. The unit overlooked a road under construction and we were woken every morning by jackhammers at 7:00am. Mgmt. Would not change our room location even though only 20-25 people were at the hotel (I now know why). Pool was cloudy, room had not been updated or painted in 20 years. Door between units had no door knob and no paint. Save yourself the dissapointment it's not worth staying here.
