“Nice and convenient location. Close to Oranjestad, shopping malls, and restaurants. Staff very attentive, good is good and plenty to choose from. You could also visit the Toy Antillas for free good is awesome there. Shows are nice but finish early st night. Sunsets are amazing. It’s always sunny in Aruba but keep in mind it’s a windy island so don’t bother getting your hair done:).” – Elena R. 7/17
