Default Bus stops

What Palm Beach hotels does the public bus stop at? Does it stop at or near the Divi Phoenix?

The busses stop in front of all of the hotels. Just notify the driver where you want to get off.

Default Re: Bus stops

Age creates confusion.
But I thought I'd try to make a comment about bus stops in the low-rise area.
Northbound, from the city to the hotels, the bus comes out past the Tamarijn and Divi Aruba properties.
It goes right when it reaches the area by the Alhambra Casino. This is "kitty-corner" from the casino. Then it goes by the hospital to serve people going to and coming from the hospital. If you want to go to Casa Del Mar, Aruba Beach Club, Manchebo Resort, Bucuti and even Costa Linda, you probably should get off by the casino...and walk across the parking lots. The bus comes back to the beach road a little beyond Costa Linda (after serving the hospital clientele).
Hope this makes sense. If not, suggest some improvements that may be more easily understood.
Oh yes, your looking for the sign that says "Bushalte" for the bus stop!

Default Re: Bus stops

All Buses to Malmok or Arashi stop in front of all Hotels starting with the ex Bushiri Beach Resort (in front of grocery stores).


The bus does not stop at either Divi Divi, Casa del Mar, Aruba Beach Club, Manchebo, Bucuti or Costa Linda - the closest stop is the one near the Hospital.



Visible on the Bus is a sign denoting either Hotel area, Hotels or Palm Beach.

Smile Re: Bus stops

Everyone has been so helpful.....Thanks! But the resort in question is not in the low-rise section of resorts on Eagle Beach near the hospital, but the high rise section of hotels and resorts in Palm Beach. I think I've seen bus stops at the Marriott, Holiday Inn, and Playa LInda areas of the high rise hotel section. But does anyone know if there is a regular stop at the first resort of the high rise section of hotels, heading North, just before you hit the Westin? This resort is the Divi Phoenix, not the Divi Links, Dutch VIllage, or Tamarinjn that's located in the low rise section. Thanks again for any help.

The bus stop is directly in front of the new lobby.

To go to Lings you will have to get off at the Stoplight and walk up 2 blocks.

The Bus doesn't stop in front of Ling & Sons, but near the store. You just need to tell your bus driver that you need to get out at the stop of the ex Bushiri Beach Resort. Just cross the street and behind Super Food you will find Ling & Sons. It is just a short walk.

Default Re: Bus stops

I've found that in addition to the "big buses" that stop at the regular stops, a lot of the minibuses will stop if you wave them down. They charge the same one-way to town, but won't give you a round-trip ticket. Usually crowded with locals getting on and off, but a time saver if you've been waiting a long time for the big bus (often 20 minutes or more between buses) and/or it's really hot!
