Make sure to use sun block often. you may not feel it due to the pleasant trade winds, but the sun is very hot. By the way its cheaper to book holiday during there off season. If you go during the high season it will be more expensive and probably more crowded. Enjoy!

Hotel tip: I would try the high rise hotels by the palm beach area. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from in that area.
But look beyond this and you will find a real friendly welcoming hotel.
The rooms are not fancy but they have everything you need and are spotless.
This hotel is a 3 star and so the food you may think my suffer but I never had a bad meal and at times was spoilt for choice, although on some nights there was limited choice but never limited quantity.
And when you see the prices of eating out in Aruba you really will think this place is a good choice for your meals.
Location,, well in a word fantastic right on one of the best beaches i have ever seen and very near all the shops and the like.
The entertainment was to be honest I think quite poor although I was not expecting any , so some nights in killed an hour from 9 to 10 at night around the pool.
Staff at the hotel are in general a very nice bunch although they do seem under pressure at times.
Pool bar area is ok but can get very busy at lunch time, but the food on offer here is of a good standard for snack bar food.
I would use this hotel again and save a lot of money by not going to one of the big hotels next door and gaining very little for the extra.

The food was average, the breakfasts were a major plus, lunch could either be in the restaurant or at the Sea Breeze Bar/Grill evenings were catered for on the beach (not to my taste) or you could make a booking at the a-la-carte restaurant (The Miramar) if you got up early enough! However the seabreeze opened its restaurant in the evenings during our second week and this was very good.
