The best beach in Aruba and one of the best beaches in Caribbean. We have been to this hotel at least 10 times, may be more. It used to be a little bit rundown. I believe it is the first hotel in Aruba going back to the 50s. A couple years ago they did a major renovation and now rooms look very up to date. But the best feature of this hotel is its beach. Huge, with beautiful white sand. The hotel has only 70 rooms and that's why there is quite a distance between every beach umbrella. Casino is within 5 min walk for anyone who is interested in gambling. (Not my cup of tea). But I would not say that this is a space with a lot of action which is perfect for us, a couple in their mid 50s.
