I have stayed at La Cabana Beach Resort repeatedly. One reason: the location. It is right on the The rooms have great We don't stay at the resort. But we do visit the Glitz Casino. There are bigger and better casinos on the island. But the convenience of walking a few minutes to get there from our resort makes it worthwhile.
We stayed at La Cabana for five nights and every night they had live entertainment and a popular happy hour from 4 to 6 at their pool side bar. We really enjoyed their high end restaurant Las Ramblas but the highlight of our stay was our bartender Jander who made us feel like we were visiting a great friend and made us have fun even when we thought we were ready for bed.
Five hundered stars for Jander!!! We again enjoyed our timeshare rental. It is so convenient to have a kitchen at our disposal. The grocery is right across the street so we were easily able to eat many of our meals on our balcony. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable.
The grounds are perfectly maintained. The maid service was not quite as good as last year but not problematic. Pool is nice and beach access wonderful. I loved the happy hour and the bands. The restaurant food was great. The pools are nice. I enjoyed the new spa located on the premises. The resort is clean and well appointed. The employees are very helpful. There are two restaurants on the property and a terrific pool bar with happy hour specials. If your young this is not the place for you.
The resort is very nice , the food is good ,the staff are nice. The shareholders who most of them are old and retired control the resort. The bar tenders were told not to play the music too loud. Happy hour is only with house liquids. If you want an umbrella around the pool , or on the beach , forget about it. The old farts get up at 5 am , yes 5 am and bring down their towels from their rooms.
They suppose to turn them in at the end of the day , but don't. The Casino is sad also. The whole week were there , i did not here of any big winners. The big thing is bingo around the pool for an hour. Most of the people go to bed at 9 pm , so they can get up early the next day to steal the shady areas.
If you want a real vacation to remember this is not the place , go to an inclusive resort. Bob from S. New York. Skip to main content. Log in to get trip updates and message other travelers. La Cabana Beach Resort and Casino. Irausquin Blvd. Review Highlights. Reviewed 3 weeks ago. Reviewed 4 weeks ago. Glitz Casino. The rooms now have bathrooms with a large walk-in shower and new appliances in the kitchens.
It is right on Eagle Beach, the best beach on the island. They have added more huts on their beach and chairs and lounges are plentiful. There is still a bar on the beach and two young ladies taking orders for drinks and food from the Island Grille. The new casino, Glitz, opened when we were there -- lots of new machines and some table gaming.
The lobby has been updated and there are 5 free computers for residents to use. Some rooms get very poor reception and you need to go to the lobby or the pool area to get connections. Beautiful view from garden side. Always had activities planned and seemed like the place to be.
Big beautifull resort. Wonderfull new casino. Newly remodeled rooms, nice pool area, right on the beach. Great happy hour. Has a Sabarro, dunkin donuts and some other favs for a quick bite or coffee. My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The resort is nice. Nothing to write home about. This restaurant is outstanding!
You are out of luck. Its like a ghost town after 8. So relaxing by the pool is loud around bingo time. This is my 2nd stay at this resort - first time Jan and now Jan They are renovating and the progress they made just in the last year was tremendous!
We had a 1-bedroom. I was travelling with a family member, so he got the bedroom with door and I slept on the sleeper sofa in the living area which also had it's own door. This worked out great for us. There is a smell when you walk into the room - however, keep in mind you are on a tropical island, so I was not offended by it and after the first few steps, you don't even notice anymore.
The rooms were spacious for the 2 of us to move around, etc. We had no issues with anything in the room. Slightly, but this certainly LaCabana's fault and is simply a condition of going on vacation outside your own home. Our room faced the Amsterdam Manor - this worked out perfectly - we had a nice large patio which made going to the pool, beach, bus stop, grocery store, a simple walk and shortcut vs.
People mentioend in previous reviews the workers and their "equipment" laying everywhere. I wonder - what do yo expect when these people are renovating and they have a 8am-6pm job that the work must get done during in order for you to enjoy it later? We didn't mind that at all, as we understand that it isn't all about us and those things happen and are necessary.
The property is nice and convenient. Everytime we got out there around 9amam we managed to find a chair. Later in the afternoon people start clearing out around 3pm too. No issues with that. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the resort. Bus stop is only 1 block if that depending on which side of resort your room is on from the resort. In our case it was almost right outside our door. Grocery store is only a short walk - look for the paths!
Overall, we are not hoity toity people, enjoy the island and the people and are not high maintenance. We understand that while this IS our vacation, not everyone should be bowing to us by any means. Overall, I would highly recommend staying here, especially now with the new renovations being done or almost done. Food items in the market store on-site were very close to gas Station prices in the US.
The jewelry was also very nice and very reasonable, too. Best happy hour on the island! Very nice pool and beach. Good room. On site casino just opened. Close to Super Foods for groceries. Very friendly staff. Short ride to downtown or up to the high rise area by bus, car or taxi.

Lining the pedestrian walk and facing the beach, the slightly more upscale Las Ramblas Tapas and Charcoal Grille is completely outdoors and serves an international selection of dishes with fresh hotel-grown herbs. You won't have to worry about finding a pool lounger at La Cabana -- they are everywhere. The white strappy sun loungers are littered across a large pool deck that wraps around the entire non-traditionally shaped pool.
Large faux-rocks give it a nice natural springs feel. A separate and shallow kids' pool and hot tub are near the Pata Pata Bar area, while an adults hot tub is just outside of shouting distance. La Cabana is located across the road from Eagle Beach with a pedestrian zebra crossing right off the property.
The water is fairly calm and receives a lot of action from Jet Ski riders, swimmer, and sailboats off in the distance. Like the pool area, there is no want for loungers. They are stacked high and scattered around, rather chaotically towards the end of the day, and there are numerous palapas — complete with built-in drink holders — that you can drag a lounger under for some shade.
The beach entrance is lined with shady trees and is where you will find Oasis Beach Bar, a water fountain, and public phone. Further towards the water, there is a water sports hut. Unlike some nearby spots on Eagle Beach, this particular area has a wide band of sand separating the lounger area and the waves. The four-pearl Hotel Riu Palace Antillas is a room, all-inclusive, adult-only resort that's right on popular Palm Beach. The atmosphere is booze-fueled and lively. Rooms are simple and modern, and some have ocean views.
The four…. This eco-friendly, room hotel has a stellar reputation and many guests return for its intimate and exclusive, yet unpretentious vibe. The Caribbean island is 74 square miles about the same size as Brooklyn and is loaded with some of the most breathtaking stretches of sand in the Western Hemisphere. Unlike many Caribbean islands, however, Aruba is less…. Ahhhhhh, Aruba! We dare you not…. Disclaimer: This content was accurate at the time the hotel was reviewed.
