The Raddisson and Hyatt on Palm beach gets good recommendations and within walking distance to most everything.

Look at for things to do.

Also, catamaran trip/snorkeling with MiDushi, Tranquillo, Octopus, Black Pearl, Red Sail

Island jeep tour with

Shopping either Downtown or Palm Beach area.

We are planning our 20th anniversary to Aruba, and one of the main reasons as it is one of the safest islands from what we have read. Have been to Jamaica, Turks and Caicos and both islands had beautiful water which is why we go, but felt as if it was not safe to venture off the properties. There is plenty to read online about things to do on Aruba, and KVR always has relevant info.

We really like the Radisson. It's got a more tropical feeling than some of the other resorts like the Westin, and a much larger and less crowded beachfront than the Hyatt. There are lots of restaurants/shops within easy walking distance.

Check out MGM Tours for air/land packages. We've used them many times in the past and find their pricing very good. Just double check your itinerary before you book to make sure everything you asked for is in order.

I have always felt the safest in Aruba than any other destination. I agree with KVR and yes he does give great info. The people are very warm, friendly, and helpful. I would not hesitate to go there with your family. You will feel comfortable there. There is also a site simply A wealth of info can be found there as well.
