The Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino family Spent a glorious day in the sun on De Palm Island

The department of Human Resources took great care to produce a perfect family day for the hard-working Team Members and their family members.

The invitation to De Palm Island for a full program of activities yielded a tremendous response, with more than 400 people taking full advantage of the opportunity.

The day took off with catered breakfast, followed by a lunch buffet, open bar throughout the day, and DJ entertainment.

Team Members enjoyed the array of activities available on the island, which included snorkeling, banana boat rides, the adrenaline-pumping slides at the Blue Parrot water park, the kids’ corner, and a variety of fun-filled competitive beach games, such as volleyball, soccer, basketball, and tennis.

The afternoon entertainment program featured salsa lessons, human foosball, ping-pong, and the latest adventurous additions to the island menu of exhilaration, zip lining 446 feet across De Palm Island from 33 feet in the air, and air jumping, soaring to 22 feet on one of the four new Air-Jumpers. 

Some team members opted to take a more relaxed route during the day by lounging in the shade, interacting with their peers and family members in an informal, unrushed setting, experiencing a bit of vacation themselves.

“It was our pleasure to offer our Team Members an opportunity to spend quality time with their kids and partners. Work takes them away for many hours and we were thrilled to pamper them in an all-inclusive, fun environment,” said Glenn Farro, Director of Human Resources.
