Where to stay in Aruba

Jump to last reply

We are considering a trip to Aruba. It will be two adults and our three year old child. We don't want to spend a lot of money, so a moderate hotel/resort will do. We want a place that has good beach front, clean and easy access to restaurants (walking if possible). Are any within walking distance to restaurants? We considered the Tamarijin since it's All-Inclusive but have read other posts that don't recommend all-inclusive in Aruba. Since we have our three year old we want something that will be close to the restuarants since time is of the essence with a little one. Obviously, we can't spend all night at a restaurant. Any of the hotels that have good dining options and great beach will be of interest too. This is basically just for some relaxation and don't want to be running around/renting a car to get our meals (if possible).

Also, how is the beach at the Divi Dutch Village Beach Resort. Any restaurants there or close by?

Thanks!
