We spent one week at the Aruba Beach Club from April 26-May 3rd in beachfront unit 163. We had a very nice stay at the resort. We especially liked the location of the room and the overall laid back feel of the place.
The front desk staff were very nice and helpful. The convenience of having a mini market and two nice gift shops on the property was a plus. We were in walking distance of several nice restaurants with Ricardo's and Pizza Bob's being our favorites. We also liked having the Alhambra Mall close by.
The days were extremely windy which could be a hinderance when walking the beach. The blowing sand actually stung when it hit our legs. Thankfully the wind would calm down most days.
We took a snorkeling/ sunset cruise on the Black Pearl Blue Emerald from 4-7pm one day and had a wonderful time. This is a really relaxing and fun excursion.
ABC was the perfect place for our family as we were traveling with my husband's parents who are 89 and 90 years old. They were able to easily walk to the stores, restaurants, and bars.
For the Catholics in the crowd they have a Mass on Sunday evening at 5pm on the Cayenna Terrace that was very well attended.
I will honestly say that we loved our room and the resort but feel that a younger crowd may not be as happy with it. Most folks were between 60-70's (my guess) and very nice but if you want night life and a younger crowd then I would look elsewhere. Also, we were only there for one week so it may be different at other times. There were a few families there with young children but not very many. The children that were there very well behaved and we enjoyed seeing them enjoying the beach and the grounds.
The highlight of our trip was participating in the 54th Annual Kings Day 10 K on 4/26. This was our first 10k and proud to say that we actually finished the race and enjoyed the experience.
Aruba remains one of our favorite island to visit and will hopefully return again in the not too distance future.
