After a few false starts and many years of planning i have finally booked a dream once in a lifetime trip to Curacao and Aruba in May, 2011 I've sorted out my accomodation in Curacao but i'm having trouble deciding on Aruba.
I'm a single down to earth 29 year old Australian male and at this stage looks like i will be travelling alone, I figure with all the expense i'm going to treat myself to a nice hotel and am trying to decide between the Renaissance, Hyatt or Westin,
Whilst the Renaissance is right in town and has its own private island (Is the island worth it?) i'm seeing a lot of complaints regarding noise, service etc
Question is (And i apologise as im sure people are sick of answering it hahah!), Do people think it's better to stay in downtown Oranjestad for a first timer? Or would you recommend i stay in the Palm/Eagle beach area as im assuming they would have a regular shuttle/bus service going into Oranjestad?
Bonbini for all your help!
