  • There were lots of stairs to the top in the blistering sun, but there was a nice view up there. Glad there weren't too many going up there because there was not much room at the top. I would consider ...  more »
  • Is a very nice experience to walk up all the stairs and then to look over the whole of Aruba. You can then look all over the island in clear weather. Very friendly staff.

  • It is an amazing place and the view is just amazing!! I love it so much Aruba is such a beautiful place 💜 the view is amazing but you gotta climb and that thing huurtss 😂😂 #noodlelegs I couldn't walk one time I went with my cousin.
  • Ohhhhh the steps. The climb up Hooiberg is over a fairly steep set of steps that will surely make your legs burn unless you're in pretty good shape. If you get vertigo the trip back down the steps can give you that sensation. It can be crowded on the steps in the late afternoon /early evening as people make their way to workout there. You can get a great view, in my opinion, from Casibari Rock.
