small hotel in Aruba with plenty of personality

Hi , Looking at Aruba for a holiday destination. Just back from Playa Del Carmen where we stayed at the Mahekal. Thatched Cabanas on the beach, swings at the bar, no need to reserve beach chairs as there was plenty. Looking for a charachter hotel (Not a high rise). Hate walking 20 mins from room to beach only to find I left something behind. Want a great white sandy beach with palm trees and snorkling. Don't want all inclusive but like to walk to restaurants for dinner. Is there such a place in Aruba????

Look at the first 3 at this link. They're all in the same area, not directly on the beach but snorkeling is walkable:


However, these are not full service hotels so there will not be beach chairs, a bar, etc. If that is more important then look at Amsterdam Manor or Manchebo - great sandy beaches for walking, small, quiet resorts but....no good snorkeling from their beaches.

So sorry, for all of your requirements....no such thing in Aruba.
