Aruba is known for beautiful beaches and great food. As you know, I usually review all inclusive resorts, but you'd be missing out if you didn't experience some of the country's great restaurants. To encourage this, the Aruba Gastronomic Association offers a Dine Around program. You pre-purchase vouchers to use for multi-course meals at participating restaurants.
The Hilton is in a great location right by the De Palma pier used for excursions and across the street from shops and restaurants.
The resort has three towers: Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. Aruba towers rooms are a little larger. The concierge level is the 8th floor in the Aruba tower.
The resort has a more active pool by the pool bar and a quiet pool closer to the Bonaire and Curacao towers. Pool cabanas are available for $75 per day and include a $25 resort credit. Palapas are available on the beach and included in your stay. You can reserve them after 4 pm by going to the towel hut or using the online system. If you'd like the same palapa for the whole week, you can reserve it for a fee.

For activities, the resort has a kids club for guests aged 4 - 12 years old. The first two hours are free. Bikes are also available for free. The beach is public with a boardwalk that goes along the length of the beach. Wifi is free.
