Our stay was just as I expected after reading the reviews. This was our first stay at the Casa Del Mar. It was a timeshare exchange for us. The unit was very nice and comfortable,not so much for the living room furniture. Beds were very comfortable.We had a fabulous ocean view from our balcony.Morning breakfast outside is wonderful.What a nice change from the northeast weather.The beach is beautiful,great for long walks. The ocean is more calm as you walk north.Just a few bits of information. There is no dishwasher, this was a surprise. The housekeeping people will do your dishes.I am not one to leave dishes in the sink and I like the idea that hot water is cleaning my eating utensils, just me.You can find free wifi from Matthews and at the Aruba Beach Club on the terrace. I agree with another reviewer that the front desk staff were not very friendly. Maybe they need a refresher on the "one happy island" attitude. We would definitely return here someday.
