I have owned a time share at the Phoenix for 11 years. I have to say I love Aruba and look forward to going every year. The Phoenix is clean, friendly and the staff very attentive.
I also like the Phoenix because it is not clumped in with all the other high rises and is the first one coming from the center of town. It is only a short walk to all the casino's and restaurants that are there and if you don't mind walking it's perfect to stroll along the boardwalk that connects all the high rises in the evening at sunset and explore a new place to eat.
The only thing I find annoying with staying is that you have to get up very early in the morning in order to get a hut. I think there is a better way to handle the huts. I know at some of the other resorts it is handled differently. Also there is a large jacuzzi not far from the pool and swim up bar and parents have decided to take up home there with their very small children even though the Phoenix has provided a very large wading pool for small children. The service at Pure Beach restaurant was slower than usually and our waiter had to be reminded more than once when we requested sweetener and Ketchup. The food is also average. I do believe with the wonder view and everything else Pure Beach restaurant could be one of the very best restaurant along the high rises.
I would highly recommend the Phoenix for honeymooners, older couples and even singles. I don't feel it is a place for children because it doesn't cater to children and has nothing for them to do. They do not offer programs like some of the other resorts more child friendly..like the Marriott ...or the Riu. And if you really don't want to hear screaming children do not go during school vacations. I leave just before school vacation week, third week in Feb. and the Friday night before I left there were at least 7 children between the ages of 4-7 in the jacuzzi ..all of which were screaming and yelling and their parents were know where to be seen. Jacuzzi are not a play yard!!!
