    Resort Fees

    Do resorts in Aruba have resort fees? Many of the hotels in the US are now charging $20-30 per night in addition to the room cost.

    If booking directly from the hotel, ask before hand what the total cost is. Most do not include the additional taxes in their "per night" cost.

    For example, I just looked at one hotel online and their nightly rate is $140 with a declaration...


    "Rates subject to 22% Tax and Service Charge and 4.00 Energy Charge Per Night"

    While not a fee to the resort, I did not know (but after considering benefit, thought it was a nice idea) that the Divi AI places a donation to the local YMCA amounting to $1 per day of your stay. They are quick to identify it when you settle things at desk and VERY quick to be sure you know it can be removed. I thought it an acceptable donation to the children of Aruba (obviously, trusting most of the proceeds go directly to the children and not the administrative costs).
