Crystal clear water, year-round blue skies, and friendly people–it’s easy to understand why Aruba is known as the “Happy Island.” Toss in a delicious rum punch recipe from the Aruba Marriott and the island gets even happier!

With a beachfront location, brilliant bartenders and the absence of sound, Aruba Marriott’s adults-only H2Oasis Pool is the place to get “happy” and enjoy Aruba’s biggest export…aloe. Aloe? Yes, aloe.
