Your De Palm Island Passport to Paradise, Aruba kicks off with hotel pickup and transportation via a comfortable motorcoach.

Good but not great
Samir_P

It was a good break from the hotel beach/pool. Kids were excited for activities such as banana boat and snorkeling. We waited about an hr for the banana boat one time; it would have been better if they had 2 boats to move the lines faster. It was also extremely disappointing the slides were closed. Had we known that, we would not have gone to de palm.

We were a family of 9 traveling ranging from age 12-60. The banana boat rides were to rough for everyone except our two youngest kids. We booked for the flamingo experience only to find out they were behind two different gates, so kind of hard to get a good picture. I could of gotten a better picture at the zoo. Food was mediocre. But staff was extremely pleasant.

A must do in Aruba
Milagros_R
, Jun 2022
An absolute must do if you come to Aruba. Transportation was very comfortable, driver was very friendly. De Palma Island is beautiful, very relaxing , water was warm ( just make sure to bring water shoes, beach floor is rocky). Snorkeling was great ( the equipment is provided to you and you can be out there as long as you like). There is a buffet table and a grilling area w/ hamburgers, fries and chicken nuggets and of course unlimited drinks 😊. I would definitely return 😊😊😊

Staff need more training on what to do In an emergency
Ashley_H
, Jun 2022
Our banana boat tipped over in the middle of the ocean and we all fell in. The two gentleman on the “speedboat” took entirely too long to pull up on side of the banana boat to get us all to safety. I’m not sure what the delay was if they were on a speedboat and they were literally watching as we feel off. You guys should do a little more than just providing a life jacket on throwing people on a boat. You should also go over what to do in case the boat tip over. I mean really go over the process on what to expect and ways to help them help us. I mean there was literally no direction.

Fun trip to De Palm Island
tricia_R
, Jun 2022
The trip to the island was very enjoyable because the bus driver told entertaining and funny stories about Aruba. Check-in to go to the island was easy and before you knew it, we were on the island sitting on the beach enjoying refreshing cocktails, while the other two people in our party headed to the beach. The food was tasty, and the wide variety ensured all had something they liked. I really enjoyed the chilled fruit. The flamingos were awesome! This island trip did not disappoint, and I recommend this trip to anyone who will be visiting Aruba because it has something for everyone.

Mini Rocky Beach
pilatus1
, May 2022
I’m disappointed that we were not picked up at our location. The mini beach is filled with rocks. No announcement when the buffet was opened and closed. Almost missed it. The driver dropped us off at the wrong Renaissance even though I told him Renaissance Ocean Suites. He told us to take the shuttle, then he drove to the Renaissance Ocean Suites. What’s up with that? It’s not worth the money.
