7 Best Aruba All-inclusive Resorts

Here are the best all-inclusive resorts on Aruba for families and couples.

This small island in the Caribbean Sea is one of the "ABC Islands" (Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao), the westernmost islands of the Leeward Antilles. Aruba's climate is what some would consider perfect: little rain, balmy breezes, and a year-round temperature of 75 to 90 degrees. Another plus for vacationers is its position outside the hurricane belt, making it a four-season destination. White-sand beaches, mountains, deserts, Arikok National Park, and Aruba's diverse culture provides visitors with plenty to see and do.

Whatever your reason for choosing an all-inclusive Caribbean vacation, here are the best properties in Aruba offering full all-inclusive plans or optional add-ons. Be sure to check the property's website to see exactly what is included before booking.
