Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach ResortWhile some resorts in Aruba have an adults-only policy, this 241-room high-rise property on Palm Beach is particularly family-friendly. Children under 12 stay and eat for free, and the Treasures of the Caribbean kids’ club—complimentary to guests—offers supervised scavenger hunts and sand castle–building competitions by day, and kid-appropriate films, with popcorn and Shirley Temples, in the evenings. And there’s loads of space for the whole family to spread out: All rooms and suites—even the lowest-tier “studio suites”—are amply sized, featuring a full kitchen, a dining table that can seat four, and a private deck or balcony. But Divi also offers plenty to lure the vacationing couple or group of friends, including two pools (complete with swim-up bar and cabanas), a full-service spa, and two beachside restaurants with tables that are situated just steps from the water’s edge.
