After months of searching through these forums and reading everything I can about Aruba, we have decided to spend 7 nights / 8 days at the Amsterdam manor for our honeymoon. I have a few questions for those who know a little more about the place (I know this is your favorite place ArubaAmy). Our main question is the difference between the 'Standard Studio' and 'Superior Studio'. Is it safe to say that the only difference between the two rooms is the bathroom? I understand the Superior Studio has a jacuzzi and 2 sinks, and the Standard only has a shower (no tub)? Also, if I read the website correctly, the Superior Studio has ocean view, however these rooms are only on the ground level and from the reviews I have read, the ground level offers very little actual ocean view. In your opinion is the Superior Studio worth $130 extra (total cost, not per night). I am just worried that a balcony on the second or third floors of the standard studio would provide more privacy than a ground floor patio on the superior.
The other question I had is about the activities on Eagle Beach near the Amsterdam Manor. We are interested in parasailing, Kite Boarding, and renting a jeep for a day or two to explore the island. Are any of these things near the Amsterdam manor or would they require a trip to Palm Beach?
Thank you for your help,
