Our family - 6 adults and two toddlers - spent a wonderful week in Aruba at Oceania 222 at Eagle Beach. This unit has everything you can think of that you'd need for a family - two highchairs, two pak'n plays, TVs and DVD players in each bedroom, beach chairs, snorkeling equipment (1 set), beach toys, beach tents...and the list goes on. There is no TV in the main room, and we were glad for that. It allowed us all to interact and not be distracted by or glued to the TV.
We loved the pools and Eagle Beach. That said our best day was spent at Baby Beach because it was a perfect spot for toddlers - and for snorkeling. We took turns with the one snorkel set, although you could rent more at the concession booth. During the week, our group enjoyed jet skiing, a jeep off-road trip, a visit to the donkey ranch, a movie, one night at a casino, and many wonderful meals. Every place we ate was excellent -- Salt and Pepper, Que Pasa, El Gaucho, Gianni's, Gustoso (highly recommended), Papiamento, the Flying Fish, Pincho's Bar and Grill, and Amici's (for breakfast our last day).
We ate breakfast and lunch in the condo. The nicest supermarket we went to was Ling and Sons - much newer and better stocked than the others around the corner. We bought ourselves a bottle of local coconut rum that was amazing - especially mixed with a little diet Sprite.
We had a perfect week and would highly recommend Aruba, and Oceania 222 in specific, as a wonderful place to go for a multi-generation family vacation.
