Where to stay in Aruba?

Hi everyone-

I'm looking to go to Aruba in August. Do you have any suggestions for nice places to stay? We would like a place that has a nice beach and is close to all of the restaurants/night life. Also, maybe a place that does not have too many young children. I've seen a few all-inclusives. Are they worth it in Aruba?? Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

If you want to be close to restaurants and night life, I would suggest either the Renaissance downtown or a hotel on Palm Beach (the Radisson seems to have less kids than other hotels on Palm Beach.)

this is in response to ArubaAmy, you suggested the renaissance, i asked my travel agent about it and he said it is not on the beach and i was looking for a property on the beach is that true and if so, any other suggestions for an all inclusive that i may do that is well kept and not too expensive

The Renaissance is located downtown (not directly on a beach) but has it's own private island that you take a 10 minute boat ride to (boat shuttles go back and forth all day for Renaissance guests only.)

If you're looking for an all-inclusive on the beach, my first picks would be the Allegro/Occidental (newly remodeled with its grand opening scheduled for May 1st) or the Divi. The Allegro/Occidental is on Palm Beach where there is much more activity and alot of nightlife to walk to. The Divi is in the low rise hotel area which is more laid back and quiet.

The Bucuti is one of the only hotel that discourages children. It is known to be more "adult friendly" and it is beautiful!

The Bucuti is a great hotel but if you're looking for walkable nightlife/restaurants/bars, etc., I would stick to the Palm Beach hotels.

The Bucuti is about 10 minutes away from downtown and about 10 minutes away from the Palm Beach area (it's right in the middle.) Easy to get to nightlife by taxi but too far to walk.
