Is there public transportation to get to Palm Aruba Condos? Should I plan on renting a car?
While there are plenty of shuttles and public transportation options that go to the big-name resorts and five-star hotels (most of which are only a 10-minute walk from Palm Aruba Condos), 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. 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 with this, and also have package deals that include a rental car.
Where can I rent a car? Can you help me do this?
Palm Aruba Condos 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, 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 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. While we can make sure a taxi is waiting for you, it will be up to you to pay the taxi for your ride. We do not include taxi fares in our pricing.
How close are you to the Beach?
Getting to the beach from Palm Aruba Condos 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. Check out the location page on our website for more information to see what’s nearby.
What are shade options on the beach? What about shade at your pool?
Palm Aruba Condos has a special arrangement with Moomba Beach to allow our guests to use their palapas (large, sturdy, thatched umbrellas) and beach chairs free of charge, subject to availability. If you’d like to take advantage of this arrangement, we’ll provide you with a special Aruba Wine and Dine card you can use for this purpose (you’ll need to get to Moomba Beach on your own). Some beaches have straw cabanas (huts) and palapas available for public use on a first-come-first-served basis (Arashi Beach, Eagle Beach, Baby Beach).
