Your De Palm Island Passport to Paradise, Aruba kicks off with hotel pickup and transportation via a comfortable motorcoach.

Transportation didn’t arrive….

We had a terrible experience! We booked however the bus didn’t show up on our scheduled day. I called earlier that morning to confirm pick up time as we didn’t receive any information. We arrived at the hotel lobby 35mins prior to the schedule time…I called again after waiting for an hour and I was told to take a taxi to the pier. I shared my chat conversation with their customer service and I asked to speak to a supervisor, never received a call back. De Palm excursions must improve their communication. My advice is call, email or text your customers to confirm pick up time. I shouldn’t have to constantly call as I am already paying for the excursion. Very unhappy with my experience ☹️

The buffet was really fresh and had a variety of foods. The staff was friendly and there were minimal lines. Snorkeling was a family favorite with lots of colorful fish and they provide all of the equipment. Didn’t see the zip line. Fresh water showers to rinse off and can take photos with the flamingos. Highly recommend.

Nice relaxing day on De Palm Island

Great little spot to come enjoy the beautiful scenery and relax. Lots of stuff to do if you want to be active. We were a group of 8 and had already done a lot so we opted to rent the private cabana and relax. Lots of room to stay in the shade or get some sun. The views of the water were amazing and the snorkeling was a lot better than I expected. Lots of tropical fish just feet from the stairs. The food is what you would expect, kinda cafeteria style similar to a cruise ship outdoor bar, but that wasn’t important to us. The waiter made sure we were never thirsty!

Loved the Sea Trek! Also loved that we could do water slides and snorkel, etc, or had the option to just relax in a beautiful setting. Great food too! Only complaint was wish it was a couple hours longer! Not enough time to do it all. Also, we booked thru trip advisor and had a few bumps- tour couldn’t find our reservation at first, were misled about all that was included, and the bus pulled up to the hotel across the street from ours then left without coming to ours! Concierge had to call to bring them back. But all in all a great day and I would definitely do it again.
