Looking for Best Resorts for Mature Singles

We are trying to find the best resorts to go on vacation where we might find other "mature" single people also on vacation (if that's even a possibility in Aruba). We don't want an "older crowd", but we also don't want young kids partying like crazy. We're not expecting a resort to be all singles ... we'd expect there to be SOME couples there also. But we want to try to find resorts that tend to attract single people. Suggestions?

I don't think you'll find exactly what you are looking for in Aruba, but the Holiday Inn does tend to attract a younger crowd....but when we stayed, there was a mix of younger crowds, older couples, families, etc....

The Riu may also have what you are looking for, but it is expensive (being All Inclusive), so I'm not sure how many younger crowds of people could afford staying there.

I actually think the Renaissance Marina Tower might work for you. I believe they're aiming for adults-only and it's in town. You will still see couples there, but I think that's true of anywhere in Aruba. Recent reviews here:

Even though I am old but immature, I have noticed that the folks at the Ren still look good in bikinis and speedos with few muchkins in tow. There also seems to be less geezers per palapa at the Rui, if AI is your thing.

(Please note that historically speaking, the average visitor to Aruba is 63, chubby, plaid shorts, black socks. sandals and wearing either a Yankees or Red Sox ball cap.)

Is the price an issue? If not then i would stay at the Hyatt and hang out across the street at night. Cafe Rembrandt and Milano are two Bar/ Restaurants that have the crowd you are looking to hang with. The other would be The Ren in town. We always stay there the last few days of our trip because we love the adults only atmosphere but the location in town dose not work for us more then a few days. Aruba has mostly couples,families and seniors. When you mingle more with the 20/30 something locals you can find some great parties and bars. Send me a PM if you would like some Facebook pages to friend and it will give you a good idea what's happening the week you are in Aruba.

I would recommend Hyatt, Marriott or Renaissance which has adult only part. Many families do visit this island. Many women traveling with a friend visit the island. Rent a car so you can visit the night spots. casinos or Sopranos, place across from ElGaucho. Also think about San Juan.
