Hello all. Here's the background: we've never been to Aruba before, but it seems like a really nice place to relax, and we can get a good nonstop flight from DC over New Year's. We are bringing our college-aged kids (20 and 22). We all like sitting on the beach, swimming, snorkeling, and touring around places (we'll probably rent a car). Six nights.
I would really like to avoid the larger, crowded resorts where it's a competition just to get a beach chair (plus many places are sold out or >$1000/day). The Manchebo has room.
Question: will it feel too "honeymoon-ish" or sedate for our kids? I know the forum has addressed this issue about little kids, but wondering if anyone can comment about the general vibe. Is the pool nice there?
I truly appreciate any and all comments!!
