I'll be traveling with my husband and 1 year son to Aruba from June 9-June 12. We are looking for a 4 star family friendly beachfront hotel in palm beach for ~$150 (including tax and fees). I saw a hot rate hotel on hotwire for the Palm Beach - Oranjestad, Aruba area for $123/night before fees and taxes with these details:

 

FULL AMENITIES: Free parking, Free Internet, Resort, Beachfront hotel, Casino, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Golf nearby, Tennis nearby, Spa services, Children's activities

 

Does anyone have an idea which hotel this is? Thank you in advance! 

 

**I updated for the full amenities. Thanks!

Welcome to BetterBidding!

 

I believe there are more amenities then what you have posted above as HOTWIRE has a new interface that does not show the complete set of amenities unless you search using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool.

If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper.com tool... use the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab and then click the GREEN BUTTON next to this listing, do you see more amenities (including any accessible amenities) then what you have listed above?

 

HOWEVER, why not go for the 4* for $127/nite (just $3 more per nite... actually cheaper than the one above since the original has a $6/nite resort fee) as this one has a 100% recommendation and 5.0 across the board for all the criteria that HOTWIRE asks previous guests to rate, except for location where it gets a 4.5/5.0 rating.  This one has (using the method above to see all the amenities):

Resort, Casino, Near Beach, Restaurant, Pool, Fitness, Smoke Free, Hi-Speed Internet, Business, Laundry, Golf, Tennis, Spa, Childrens Activities, Free Parking, Travel Accessible, Room Accessible, Bathroom Accessible

==> best guess here would be the Renaissance Aruba Resort and Casino...does this one work for your needs?

Thanks for the quick reply! We actually don't want to risk staying at the renaissance b/c I saw the hotel has 2 different sections, one for adults (standard rooms) and one for families (suites) and I saw previous post that the hotwire/priceline rate rooms are for the standard adult only rooms. Since we are traveling with a one year old, we won't be able to stay in the adult only rooms.

Would you be willing to stay on the non-adult side of the Renaissance?

 

For the 'other' (original) 4* do you see more amenities when using the method outlined above?

I would love to stay at the non-adult side of the renaissance, but that side only has suites and I would think the price is a lot higher. 

 

The original 4* has these amenities: FULL AMENITIES: Free parking, Free Internet, Resort, Beachfront hotel, Casino, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Golf nearby, Tennis nearby, Spa services, Children's activities

I don't have a guess for the original 4* hotel (amenities immediately above)

 

But if you search for 1adults/1child the 100% recommended hotel still appears.  As well, the amenities for this property (as per my post above) includes Children's Activities as an amenity so i wouldn't think it would be the adult-only side of the Renaissance.

 

This is how i would play it (but you need to accept a little risk of possibly needing to deal with HOTWIRE customer service, which could go easy or difficult, depending how willing they are to understand your situation)...

 

I would take the 100% recommended hotel on the basis of the excellent reviews.  My guess would be the Renaissance (NOTE that the Holiday Inn Aruba Beach Resort Casino may have been upgraded to the 4* level, so that would be among the possibilities as well, although the last report for this property is 3.5*)... but you'd really be buying based upon the good reviews.  If you should get the Renaissance, then call HOTWIRE to let them know that you're traveling with a 1 year old which you didn't include in the search since their form indicates you should only include children that are 2+ years old, so you want to make sure that you're not on the adult-only side.  I can't/don't speak for HOTWIRE, but in my experience they would then call the hotel to confirm, and either confirm you're on the non-adults-only side, move you to the non-adult-only side, or cancel the reservation. (this only works because your child is less than 2 years old and you only need to include children 2+ on your HOTWIRE search... it would be different if your child was 2+ years old)

 

So maybe it's the non-adult side of the Renaissance, maybe it's the Holiday Inn or some other 4* rated property, but i think the Children's Activities ensures that it's not the adult-only side of the Renaissance, and if it should be, i think you'd be OK after a call to customer service since they indicate you only need to 'declare' children that are 2+ years old as per their search form.
