    I spent almost every day of my vacation at the Playa Linda Pools and beach even though we werent staying there. BUT - we did have friends there - so I didn't feel like we were intruding. I usually will not go to a hotel beach/pool unless I am staying there.

    I am guilty of using the Hyatt waterslide several times and never staying there.

    I don't mind paying to use another pool for a day. But if its not even an option at most then it won't happen for us. Thats completely ok. We don't get out on vacation very often so we were going to check out as many places as possible. Thanks for all the great info everyone.
    Next Aruba trip in

    We have walked around every property on Palm Beach just to check it out - noone usually will hassle you for that.

    And - in my experience - they only are really strict with pool use during the peak season - or if you OBVIOUSLY look like you dont belong.

    The renaissance day pass (if they even do it anymore) was like $75 bucks a person which to me is crazy!!!! We used to stay there before we bought our timeshare, and when we missed the island we would just book a room for an extra night before checkin or after check out at the timeshare (usually around $200 a night). Then for $50 more than a day pass you get the island and a room!

    It is very easy to walk around just about any of the resort properties. I do it all the time.

    Let's be honest though, if you were paying $670 a night for a standard room at the Radisson over Christmas would you be annoyed if they sold day passes for $20 a piece, never mind permitted free use of the pool to someone paying MUCH less staying elsewhere, say inland ?

    Yup! Could not believe it until my grandmother took the family a couple of times. AND that does NOT include airfare which is also at a premium at that time of year.

    Looking real quick for this year, cheapest rooms available on a well know online discount travel website for a stay over Christmas and New Years:


    The Westin Resort & Casino, Aruba
    $691 per night

    Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino & Spa
    $671 per night

    Occidental Grand Aruba - All Inclusive
    $855 per night

    Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive
    $590 per night

    Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino
    $1,062 per night
