Is free WIFI readily available near Eagle Beach?

We are at Eagle Beach in Paradise Beach Villas for the first week in June. It seems they have WIFI available, but it is not free. We use Skype to keep in touch with home. Does anyone know if there is free WIFI available at local restaurants/coffee shops? Does McDonalds have free WIFI on the island?

Thanks for any help.

Starbucks downtown has free Wifi. Also Salt & Pepper, Cafe Rembrandt, and Moomba's (all in the high rise hotel/Palm Beach area) have free Wifi.

Closest to where you will be will probably be Delifrance or check the Dunkin Donuts at Alhambra.

On the list Moby Dicks is closed.

Thanks to all for the replies & the link. I will give those places a try.

The resort wants $10 a day, or $35 a week for internet, which seems a little stiff to me for internet in 2012.

Matthew's Restaurant behind Casa del Mar has free wifi. Come at happy hour, buy a round and connect! We can get the signal from our patio which faces Matthew's, but not from inside the room, so the signal is not very strong. Used it to Skype home last July and are counting on it again this year.

Most resorts in Aruba, unlike other vacation venues, don't feel the need to add free wifi as a perk. They see it as another income stream.

There are some resorts in Aruba that offer free Wifi to their guests: Amsterdam Manor, Manchebo, Marriott Surf Club, Marriott Ocean Club, and Holiday Inn to name a few.

And others like the Riu and Ren offer it for free in their lobby.
