All-Inclusive is not All-Inclusivefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Well now that you've had a good night sleep and are ready for good things to eat and drink, this is when the hotel really turns on the heat, starts beating you into submission, you know, to loosen your purse strings and pull out a buck or two. What, your ALL-INCLUSIVE? We don't care about that because guess what? Your gonna pay even more now "Smart Guy" for saying that nasty "AI" word.
Here's the deal - only one drink per person each time you go to the bar, so what if your getting a drink for you and your wife, she can come up after you go sit down, oh yeah, there's a limit too paly boy, so drink up, we want your cash. What you want dinner now, OK come to the table, out of 10 entrees, we forgot to tell you that only two of the ten qualify under the ALL-INCLUSIVE, usually, always, without a doubt, one will be chicken, suprise yourself on the second choice. Oh Yeah buddy!!! Tips were'nt included when you paid your travel agent for your trip, so if you don't tip the staff, believe me, you'll wish you drank the local water the last time you went to Mexico. Lunch, listen pal, we have "beans and franks", and the other choice is "franks and beans". How would you like yours done sir?
Water sports? There's the water, go for it Sport!!!
Now let me ask you a serious question. When at home, at night, you lay on the chaise lounger outside when every thing is quite and the kids are in bed, you look up in the sky and wonder where all those planes with their twinkling lights are going and how you wish you could be on one of them? just once, just to get away from it all!!! Well pal, spend your hard earned bucks with your travel agent and you'll find yourself finger painting in the sand, "SOS - SEND HELP NOW" hoping one of those planes will take you back to your chaise lounger at home, only your not dreaming this time!!!
La Cabana has TERRIBLE servicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
La Cabana - Huge Room! Great Staff!from A TripAdvisor Member
A great place to relax!from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at La Cabana in June 2003. Several reviewers have complained about the place being full of kids, but we were there just before most schools got out for the summer, so we did not see many children at all, just two babies, and 1 toddler. You should probably visit there before the kids get out for holidays, if you do not wish to be surrounded by kids. We travelled a lot by bus. The bus stop was not far outside of the resort gate. Very easy to get around into town, and to visit other hotels and restaurants. I recommend reserving a room overlooking the pool. A much better view than the back side of the place. Planning another trip to Aruba this June. I usually like to stay in Marriott hotels around the world. I did visit the Marriott in Aruba. Very beautiful; much more upscale than La Cabana, with some rooms right on the beach. But it is located way out, all by itself. Where La Cabana is located, it is a short walk to other hotels and restuarants. So, we are planning to stay at La Cabana again this year!

Great Vacationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Before booking the trip I was a bit put off by some accounts of the walking distance "crossing the street" to get to the beach, but it was nothing at all, if anything a leisurely stroll. We stayed in the back in the Villas (farthest building back) and still found the walk to be minimal, the the street is like crossing a narrow side-street -- it is by no means a 'busy dangerous highway' which I have read in others' reviews. The people were great, my only major issue was the fact that there was a stray dog with a broken paw outside the lobby that none of the staff would help. I actually complained multiple times for someone to call an animal shelter (assuming even Aruba has one) and the woman said it was being taken care of but later I saw the same dog over at the Cabana casino. Even if they did not care about animals, I still found it perturbing that they didn't take my request as a guest seriously (that the sight of a wounded animal whenever I walk through the lobby takes away from my 'good time!") But I digress... If you are doing a snorkel cruise, do the day excursion with Jolly Pirates. We had a fabulous time with them and would definitely do it again the next time -- open bar, 3 snorkel sites, lunch, rope swing, and all for only around $50. Best time we had in Aruba!

Top Local Tips for Oranjestad
Excellent dining and easy use of rental cars We find it cheaper to rent a car before arriving. We pick it up at the aiport on arrival and return it there on day of departure. Oneo of our favorite reastaurants is El Gaucho. Great food. Also like the Palms at the Hyatt. Some many good restaurants to name. Shopping is also excellent, especially for jewelry.
Buses/ bus stop Bus stop right out back of property. Vans called "the dollar vans" will stop if you're in the bus stop area and offer you a ride for a buck. They are safe and quick and come more often than the public buses and take you along the same lines. An easy and quick way to get to town or a supermarket.
DO NOT USE THE BLUE PHONES! In almost every resort in Aruba you will find "blue phones" which advertise as being low rates to call the US - I made a four minute phone call to Massachusetts & was charged $47.00 US - DO NOT USE THESE PHONES!!!!!!
