Costa Linda is a resort located on the beautiful white, sandy Eagle Beach in Aruba. The resort features one-, two- and three-bedroom suites with kitchenettes or kitchens. With three restaurants, two coffee shops and a bar, you will never go hungry at the Costa Linda. The kids will love the pools and one is exclusively for kids under six years old. Many island-themed nightly activities at the resort are fun for all families. The resort plans daily activities for adults and for kids through their children’s program. There are other activities off the resort, too. Take the family underwater to see Curacoa’s Coral Reef!

In June, I went to a amazing place in Aruba called the Costa Linda resort. The things I LOVED about it was that it was so close to lots of restaurants and there was a market right downstairs. I got my nails done and they awesome job so if you want to get your hair braided ,nails done and get a massage then I think that’s a good place for you. I also loved that there was so many different activity’s such as pool aerobics,pool volleyball, yoga,and much more. They had a schedule for all of the activities and that’s a great place to meet new people.Another thing I loved was the beach was your backyard! All you have to do is pack your beach bag ,walk downstairs and behind the pool and there you are. One more thing I love about was that it had a pool with a volleyball net and a basketball hoop inside and it had a hot tub and in the lobby there’s a ping pong table. Next to the pool there’s a a restaurant called Water’s Edge and they serve breakfast,lunch,and dinner. My experience at the Costa Linda resort was a blast and I highly suggest it.
The are a number of really nice timeshare resorts on Aruba. I have stayed at several like the Marriott Surf Club, the Divi Phoenix and LaQuinta. Each has its own personality. However, Costa Linda stands out as the one that seems to excel in all areas. It has an outstanding physical facility, a welcoming staff and one of the best locations right on Eagle Beach - not across the street from it! You can be as active as you want, or as laid back as you want.
My wife and I enjoyed the exercise program, nicely equipped gym and the relaxing time on the beach under one of the plentiful "palapas". There are several restaurants and a coffee shop on the property. The Waters Edge restaurant and bar was my favorite. It serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and is on the beach. Its bar has three happy hours daily and offers service right at your palapa on the beach. One of the island's casinos, the Alhambra is at the far end of Costa Linda's parking lot. However there is a shuttle that will take you to the casino that is collocated with several shops and restaurants.
Our two bedroom unit had a fully equipped modern kitchen and sleep sofa in the living room. The unit we stayed in can accommodate up to six people. The master bedroom is large and has a large ensuite bathroom with a walk in shower. The second bedroom has twin beds that housekeeping will push together and make up as a king bed. It also has an ensuite bathroom with a combination tub and shower. Both bedrooms have safes. All of the Costa Linda two and three bedroom units received new furniture last year. Maid service was provided six days during our seven day stay. The seventh day (Sunday), housekeeping changed towels and collected garbage from the unit.
The property is owned by the timeshare owners and managed by the owner elected Board of Directors who have contracted Royal Resorts to provide state of the art infrastructure and training resources to the benefit of the owners and guests. Royal Resorts operates some of the highest ranked resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean. Their positive impact on the professionalism exhibited by every aspect of Costa Linda's operating elements is very apparent. Since I own winter weeks at Costa linda and this was my first summer rental I can confirm that the level of service I experienced this summer is a testament to the year round consistency of the excellence of Costa Linda "experience".
