Our family just wrapped up a wonderful 8-day stay in Aruba at Paradera Park. It was a perfect destination for our family and was a true home-away-from-home experience. All the prior raves about this place should be taken to heart. It's the real deal. Our 2-bedroom apartment was fairly spacious with a great outdoor patio. The apartment had a well equipped kitchen which afforded us the option of cooking on occasion (and even utilizing the BBQ on the premises).
The interior grounds are stunning and extremely well kept. You feel like you may have just stumbled into the Garden of Eden. Needless to say, our two boys (ages 5 & 9) fell in love with the pool.
Unlike staying in the resort area, Paradera Park incentivizes you to really explore Aruba. The beaches at the resorts are very nice and have all the amenities you would expect to find, but our favorite beaches were outside of the tourist zone (e.g. Eagle Beach and Baby Beach).
You will need to rent a car if you stay at Paradera Park, but as mentioned, it's worth the investment to give you maximum flexibility of exploring the island.
It's nice to see places like Paradera Park still exist. In a world of mega-resorts and where customers are simply room numbers, Paradera Park provides a real human connection. Our son had his 9th birthday while we were there, and upon waking up in the morning, he found our outside patio all decorated to celebrate the event. Try finding that at the Westin!
In closing, Aruba is a lovely island and a great get away for both adults and kids. If you want to take tranquility, value, great service and beautiful accommodations one step further during your stay, make tracks to Paradera Park. We loved it!
