If you want to spend lots of money and like to stay in luxury hotels with all access to beach and pools, then the resorts are for you. All major hotel chains are there waiting for you to book. The down side of that is they can be very crowded with too much civilization.
If you like a quiet place with little sign of civilization yet with all the comfort of a vacation home without burning your wallet then you should stay at the villas - we stayed at the Aruba Beach Villas. This is the best place for us in terms of price, access, location, comfort, and relaxation. We could sit at the front porch enjoying the beautiful unobstructed sunset every night.More
