Stayed at the Costa Linda Beach Resort Sept. 28 - Oct. 5, 2012. We stayed in a two Bdrm. 2 bath unit on the fifth floor over looking the pool and ocean. Wonderful. This was a Timeshare unit, newly re-modeled with a balconey. Very good time to visit, very few children. Many of the guest were owners and spoke highly of the resort. Aruba has a lot to offer. We toured the island with a cab driver name Ray. He was very informative, took us to places the typical bus tour did not. Do not recommend taking the Jeep tour. Ride could be very bumpy and uncomfortable for those with health challenges. Resort has a shuttle that takes you around the area. Down side is that shuttle can take you close to the grocery store, but you will then need to cross a very busy street and return the same way with bags to get the shuttle back. Take a cab would be much better. Cab fare is regulated by the goverment and is pretty standard. A standard price of $9.00 will take you from the low rise area to the high rise area.
There is a variety of resturants, but a cab is needed to get to them Seafood is excellent. We dined at the Driftwood in the downtown area service and food excellent.
Service: The housekeeping service is OK. Many do not speak English, but speaking slowly will get them to understand. Resort staff was very helpful, friendly. We needed use a motorized wheelchair and was surprised to find the cost was only $5 per day.
Beach - Eagle Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. No problem with finding places to sit, white sand was cleaned daily. Security is very visible and definitely monitors the pool for over aggressive child activity.
Definitely plan on returning. ( Highly recommend Ray, cab driver, 593-3234; email@example.com)
