    Resort phone question

    Is there a charge to call a local Aruban cell phone (or any local number) from the resort phone in your room?

    I had a feeling. We will be staying at La Cabana but it’s probably the same. Good info, thank you!

    I own on the island and we are charged for useage for all calls. Depending on the number of calls it may be cheaper to rent a phone

    No. You use either a headset or your built in Mic and speaker. Cost would be about 8 cents a minute. (Ithink)

    Last year I needed a Doctor because I forgot to pack my blood pressure medication. So I called the front desk and they called the hotel doctor at her home who I spoke to. When I checked out I was surprised that I was billed for 4 phone calls. The phone charges were for the local doctor that the front desk called for me 4 times and I recall it was around 75 cents a minutes.
