Aruba Airport has two VIP lounges, one located within the US gates, and one located within the international gates:
Passengers with a Priority Pass, Airport Angel pass, or Business Class passengers from Avianca and KLM can make use of the VIP Lounges without an additional fee. Other passengers can pay a fee and get access to the VIP Lounges.
I checked out the Aruba Airport VIP lounge by gate 2 in the US area, and was thoroughly disappointed.
Inside, there was no one manning the front desk, so for entry you were asked to see the bartender. Unfortunately, her Priority Pass machine that scans the cards was down, so she let me in upon quickly glancing at my phone’s Priority Pass card.
The lounge featured a meager arrangement of food, including several sandwiches which looked like they had been sitting out for quite a while, a soup pot with no soup to be found, and 2 snack towers with little snack mix left in them. I was, however, promptly offered a drink.
The lounge has a fairly large seating area, and there was only a handful of passengers inside, including, funny enough, a few pilots.
Overall, it’s better than being in the terminal itself, but the services and amenities inside are limited, save for a few stale snacks and a private bathroom area.
