What can you expect while in Aruba?

What should you do pre arrival?

First of all, you should check to see if what is specifically required 1) prior to traveling to Aruba and 2) what you will be required to do when you return from Aruba. Note that the conditions may change so please familiarize yourself with all the latest regulations.

COVID-19 Testing

Please make sure you have the proper pre-testing as required by the Aruba Authorities. For specific requirements, please visit www.aruba.com and review the Health requirement section.

If you do the test upon arrival at Queen Beatrix International Airport in Aruba, you are required advise the Front Desk on arrival at the Resort and stay in your room until you receive the results of the test. If you require, the Resort can make arrangements for items of Food and Beverage to be delivered to your room for consumption while you await your test results.

Health Insurance coverage is required. The latest information is also available on the arubavisitorsinsurance.com and review the information.

It is a requirement that you complete your ED card on line between seventy-two (72) and four (4) hours prior to arrival in Aruba.

We also highly recommend that you complete your Paradise Beach Villas pre-registration form (available on our website www.paradisebeachvillas-aruba.com ) which saves a lot of time upon check-in at the Resort.

At the Resort

We are pleased to announce that the COVID-19 situation in Aruba has improved to the point where the measures imposed by the Government to control the spread of the virus have been lifted. However, within these broad guidelines, individual Companies still have the authority to impose internal protocols in consideration of the well-being of their patrons and staff.

 

While our staff continue to be diligent in sanitizing guest rooms, hallways, elevators, pool and beach furniture and common areas with special attention to high-touch zones that affect both guests and employees, below is some specific on-property protocol information:

 

 

  • Social distancing of at least 1.5 meters – or approximately 6 feet – between staff and other non-family members is highly recommended.
  • We kindly ask in-house guests to wear a mask when in enclosed areas – e.g. the lobby, elevators, corridors and where social distancing is not possible. Masks are not required outdoors but social distancing is highly recommended and encouraged.
  • There are hand sanitizing stations in the lobby and in the public areas which we recommend our guests to use.
  • Signs indicate the number of persons allowed in our elevators.
  • We kindly ask our guests to make payments by credit card as much as possible and limit the use of cash.

What do you need to do before returning home?

In an effort to make it easier for our guests to get a test before returning home – especially residents of or in-transit through the USA, Aruba has established multiple test centers in Resorts or close to the tourist centers of the island. For Paradise Beach Villas members and guests, the closest test center is at La Cabana, right next door.
