    Cost of chairs-lounges at Resorts ?

    There are some resorts (hotels and timeshares) that charge $ for their chairs/lounges on the beach.
    Please tell us what the lounge policy is at your resort or the resort where you plan to stay?

    This is helpful to those that have no idea of the pricing or to a person new to that particular resort.

    We often/usually stay at LaCabana on Eagle Beach.
    They do not charge for their chaises/chairs on the beach.
    There are usually places in a mid or back row open pretty much all day.
    The front spots fill up in "normal non covid times" before 7 am.
    Yes that is an eye roll.


    What my husband and I typically do...............over the last few years, we make "camp" at the pool at LaCabana and then a couple of times during a day we cross over onto the beach hop in the water for an hour. We come back hang at the pool and then repeat a few hours later. But, my husband has back issues and walking in the deep sand is sometimes difficult.

    We often go to Reflexions Beach Club bar and restaurant on Surfside Beach.
    The chairs/shade/lounges cost about $25. The parking is easy. The beach is narrow and not hard at all walking on the sand.
    The downside with it is we cannot bring our own food or beverages. We usually grab lunch and a couple of drinks while there.
    ( we do bring iced tea in our RTIC cups)
    THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind? SIDTM

    No charge at Manchebo and with 50+ palapas for only 72 rooms you can always find a palapa.
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!

    Andrea that is often what I do as well. ^^

    No charge on druif beach for Divi Village and Divi links guests, but there are not as many palapas since the beach has eroded over the years. It's first come, first served so I try to get there early. If I can't get shade, I can still usually get a chair. If I can't find shade when I'm ready, I just go back across the street to the pool. I usually need the palapa to lock my bag, though. I have locked to a chair before.

    There is no charge at Playa Linda for chairs or palapas. They do come around and take your room number.

    No charge at Costa Linda. Security will record your room#. The general rule is not to leave the palapa unattended for more than 2hrs.

    We're scheduled to return to our timeshare, Marriott Ocean Club, in November after missing 2020. There is a charge for palapas/chairs but as owners, we've always received a credit back for the same amount charged BUT I stand in line every morning and don't reserve in advance. I take my coffee to the towel hut in the morning and use the wait time to peruse the Aruba Today and chat with the other guests in line. It's actually not a bad way to start the day if you're an early riser. We prefer a middle position on the beach--halfway between the sea and the pool but will take anything that provides shade! Has never been a problem during our November trips. I will update with prices/procedure when we're there or right after we return.

    We too, are Ocean Club owners. This past spring, you had to call down to get your palapa. We usually get one....maybe in the last row. As owners we don't have a fee to pay. If they're all gone, we just park ourselves under a palm tree. I refuse to pay (for a first row palapa) for what should be included.
