Beach Hours
Eagle Beach in Aruba is one of the most breathtaking beaches on the island. Eagle Beach boasts the widest beach in Aruba and is famous for its pristine and soft white sands. Eagle Beach offers a clear, sparkling Caribbean, ample parking, shaded picnic areas, some huts, and a variety of motorized water sports.

A few months per year Aruba Eagle Beach is dotted with red and white markers to protect turtle nests. The turtles hatch mostly around sunset and at night. Four species of sea turtles nest in Aruba - Leatherback, Loggerhead, Green and Hawksbill. Turtles can have their nest anywhere on the island, however most nests can be found on Eagle Beach in Aruba. Each nest contains some 80 eggs. Watching the hatchlings find their way to the ocean conquering the sand and waves is a unique vacation experience in Aruba. 

La Quinta is located just across the road; La Quinta provides cabanas and lounges from
8:00 am to 6:30 pm for its members and guests.

Upcoming Upgrades / Projects

Eco-friendly products for housekeeping made on the island by a company called Arupro is only going to be used during the course of 2016 to clean the suites at La Quinta. Our vision is to have the resort undergo various audits in the near future in order to be recognized as an eco-friendly resort. These certifications include ISO 14001, Green Globe and Travelife.

Remodeling of Phase II suites will commence during the course of 2016. The first suite that will be remodeled is suite 2001. The remodeling includes kitchen upgrade, bathroom upgrade, and new stainless-steel appliances and to help us conserve electricity we will also install isolated windows and doors. Pavers project similar to what was done in Phase I will also take shape in phase II during the course of 2016.

The pool deck will be expanded with approximately 7 meters. The overhang will also be extended to accommodate two rows of lounge chairs.  The pool renovation is also part of the renovation of Phase II. Like the pavers project the pool renovation will also be done during the course of low season.
