    They have a good amount of security at the Ritz around the property day and night. At night they have at least one person out near the pool area. It took me a bit off guard when I was returning from a night of gambling around 3am and I was questioned about what I was doing on the property and where I was headed....I advised them my name and room number and they were very nice but certainly wanted to know what I was doing at 3am coming off the the beach walkway....

    At the Divi Golf and Beach, there is a security guard stationed at the booth to the villas (also an arm comes down so your vehicle can not enter without a swipe of your room key). We've spotted other security guards in various areas and at the pool.

    It is a quiet area near the HI parking lot that I have walked many nights on my way back to my hotel. It never made me nervous though...

    There are 2 parking lots. Are you talking about the large one over by the casino entrance or the small area between the HI and Playa Linda.

    I've noticed security when walking along the pathway between Holiday Inn all the way down to the Ritz. I've mentioned previously that I think the security at the Occidental is the most present and almost intimidating on Palm Beach. They weren't even going to let me go to the gift shop.

    The Casa del Mar security team is great. Video cameras are abundant. Access at night is restricted. We feel very, very, safe.

    There's a lot of security at our resort (Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort) and all over the island but I cant understand all that security in such a safe place.

    It is the parking lot next to the HI casino and in back of Tony Roma's that I do not see security.

    the policing and security is necessary in order to keep aruba safe.

    in the last decade the security presence at the resorts and the police visibility has increased dramatically.

    aruba is safe...however never let one's guard down. be as careful in aruba as you would be anywhere!
