Spring break isn’t just for college friends and teachers with a break from school and work — there’s a whole world of family-centric locales, activities and promotions your crew should take advantage of this season.
While planning a warm-weather vacation when the kids are home in spring, few choices guarantee more sun and fun than Aruba. Venture to One Happy Island for an all-ages, all-interests good time — white sandy beaches and crystal-blue waters included.
Following an impressive renovation, Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino has a Family Escape offer just in time for spring break, including 20 percent discounts on room rates and a slew of amenities and freebies.
The package includes:
- Daily full buffet breakfast for two adults and two children at Laguna Restaurant.
- One 80-minute coconut couple’s massage, while the kids can head to ShocoLand Adventures and Games Kid’s Club – childcare is included.
- A Hilton Aruba beach palapa for four days.
- De Palm Island family full-day excursion, including visits to the island’s beloved flamingos, water park and slides, banana boat rides, snorkeling and more.
The property is made for entertaining guests of all ages and interests, so in addition to the package inclusions, families have an entire world of sure-to-please opportunities. Relax on the beach or by one of the resort’s two pools; hop on complimentary bikes and explore the island; check out the nearby butterfly farm; set up a tee time and hit the links; venture on a hike through the stunning countryside with some helpful directions from the resort’s concierge team; or check out the on-property casino and shops when the kids are at a club just for them.
Discuss local tours, excursions and all the island-hopping fun your family can have with the resort’s expert concierge team, or build your own itinerary as you go. Feel free to plan ahead while booking the spring break offer, or play it by ear on the island — just don’t forget, your family is on island time and you might not want to overload your days.
Guests must book by Feb. 29, and stay for a minimum of five consecutive nights March 9–April 26. Rates begin at $765 per night.
