"A slice of Heaven"
We had the studio suite in the beach tower. In other words, the cheapest room. And it was just perfect. We were there 15 days, which surprised some people. They asked if we got bored. NO WAY. Had a very modern and complete kitchen, comfy queen bed (altho it seemed bigger), and a living room area with couch, chair, end tables, lamps. Only drawback to this type of room is that I tend to get up earlier than my husband and with it being a studio, the living area and sleeping area are one big room.
Our room (1103) faced the beach and all the pools. Great morning views, and having coffee on our balcony with a view like tat just can't be beat. We've traveled extensively, and I can't remember ever having a better trip than this one.
Hotel staff were just great, Even the ones that didn't speak English (mainly housekeeping) always had a smile and OLA for us.
I knew we would have a kitchen, and I packed a lot of items that we could use. Such as paper plates, plastic eating utensils, our own coffee mugs, paper napkins and towels, fruit cups, boxed muffins, and lots of canned foods. Food is very expensive in Aruba, so when we went to the grocery store we only needed to buy perishable items.
Kitchen does NOT have a dishwasher, and I didn't want to spend a lot of time doing dishes, which is why I had the disposable stuff. Pus, I'm very picky, and don't use rental dishes and cookware without washing them first. Hotel provides dish soap, scrubber sponge, and dish towels.
