Editor’s Review of Playa Linda Beach Resort
Smack-dab in the middle of Palm Beach, the low-lying coral-colored buildings of the Playa Linda cater to families who like the idea of having a ... more room with a full kitchen; an easy stroll to the beach; a choice of onsite dining; a market to buy food, milk, wine and beer; a personalized concierge service to help with all restaurant reservations and activities, a pool, a kids' club to keep the young ones active during the day and even a Teen Center that will keep the moodiest teenager entertained.
There are six types of rooms on property, guaranteed to appeal to all sizes of families, from a studio with a king-sized bed to a three-bedroom penthouse. And all of them have balconies overlooking those glorious ocean vistas. With the beach located a minute's stroll from your room, you'll no doubt be spending the bulk of your day making footprints in the sand. But it's nice to know when your day is done, you can retreat to your spacious abode to freshen up, and simply walk downstairs to dine. Life should only be this simple.
The island is only 16 miles long and 7 miles wide, and traffic is never too bad so renting a car to see Aruba is a great idea. Head north of Palm Beach to snorkel at Boca Catalina and visit the century-old California Lighthouse. Then head east along the northern shores and pay a visit to the small, yet charming, Alta Vista Chapel, along with the caves and angry surf of Arikok National Park. On the southeastern tip of Aruba, the best kitesurfers in the world test their mettle on the tumultuous waves and steady wind at Boca Grandi Beach. A good way to end the day is at nearby Baby Beach, where the shallow and soft sands of the ocean are ideally suited for a dip. less
