I have a choice of Divi Phoenix, Cas del mar, Playa Linda, Aruba surf or Aruba Ocean. Any suggestions as to which one is better. We like the beach and nightlife.
Well, I'm not a big lover of the Marriott properties, but I think their timeshares are nice. Just a very crowded area. Of all of these, if I had a choice I would take Playa Linda. Located right in the middle of a ton of restaurants and activities.
There really isn't a ton of nitelife on the island. There are some clubs for the younger group, but there are also some clubs by Playa Linda, Soprano's piano bar, Mr Jazz to name a few.
We own at the new Divi Phoenix, but based on what you said, I'd also suggest Playa Linda. It is a beautiful resort right in the middle of everything.
When will you be going to Aruba? All the properties you listed are nice. The Marriott properties are great, I am a fan of them. The Ocean Club is lovely and the Surf Club is just a big place with some 3 bedroom units and many children certain times of the year. That can be said for all of the places. Playa Linda is usually hard to trade into it as no one seems to trade out of it. Divi Phoenix so much construction is happening but the new tower is awesome and beautiful. So what do you want? All the beaches are beautiful and lovely. Night life at the Casinos or some bars. Might want a car.
As Teach said:" Playa Linda is hard to trade into as no one seems to trade out of it."
Sounds like a heck of an endorsement to me!
Of course, I may be a tad biased! ;)
Playa Linda is right in the middle of everything. The Hyatt casino, right next door, has a band and is fairly busy. There are also a few bars around. For what you are looking for, Playa Linda would be the right fit.
How about between Divi Golf Resort and Playa Linda?
I will be going October 20 thru Oct 27.
