The Resort

General resort information to make your stay in Aruba at the La Quinta Beach Resort as smooth and worry-free as possible.


Weekly Member Meetings

Monday Morning at 10:00 AM
Ika conducts a weekly Members’ Briefing for members in residence at the resort.

Any Board Members in residence at the resort will also be at the meeting.

These meetings have proven to be very successful. The meetings provide an excellent opportunity for members to be brought up to date with innovations and plans at the resort.

They also provide a forum for questions, concerns, and comments that provide vital feedback to the administrative staff at the resort. Coffee and donuts are served.


The Big Switch

Check-In – 4:00 PM
Check-Out – 11:00 AM

Saturday is an insane day at the resort (and at all the other timeshares on the island). You know the drill – you need to be out by 11:00 AM. but you can’t get in til 4:00 PM. What do you do with the wine and cheese in the fridge?

Ika and the Housekeeping staff are addressing the problem on many levels. Some of the ways that Ika and her staff address these issues include:

No staff member has a day off on Saturday ! A priority listing is made for housekeeping. Units are prepared as they are vacated.

How can you help
Send a fax or email to the resort the week before your arrival and include:

The date and time of your arrival
the weeks and units you will be residing in
The date and time of your departure
This information will help Ika to create a priority list that will allocate limited housekeeping and maintenance resources most efficiently.

Voice Mail System

When the reception desk closes at 11:00 pm, the voice mail system is activated. In order for a caller to access your email, he must know the extension number for the room. This number is posted on each phone. Let people at home know the extension number of your room.

To access the system and retrieve your message, Dial 555, then dial 7 to listen to your message. To delete your message, key in 3. Call the operator if you need assistance.

Upon check-in, make sure your room phone is turned on. As usual, out-going calls can be made at any time. Phone use instructions are provided in the guest services book which is in every room.


As a convenience to you, La Quinta now has a Postbox which is located in front of the Members’ Lounge and is provided by the Local Postal Services.

Stamps are available at the Front Desk.
