We spent two weeks in Aruba (Nov.-Dec. 2007) at the Oceania Residences, a new condo development in the "low-rise" section of the island on Eagle Beach. Since we prefer a vacation "home" (rather than hotel-type accommodations), this was the perfect spot for us. I rented through VRBO (Unit 421, I believe). Our 2-bedroom condo was spectacular - equipped and furnished to perfection. Superb terrace accessible from the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom. Fabulous view of the beach and ocean, which are just a few minutes walk from the property. Delightful swimming pool on the property.
Plenty of excellent restaurants just minutes away (though we enjoyed cooking and eating in most nights). The island is quite small, so it's very easy to get around in a rental car. Plus, there is fine super market-shopping 5 or 10 minutes away by car.
Only complaint -- things are a bit expensive in Aruba. But don't let that stop you from going. This island is a gem. Perfect weather year-round. Something for everyone.
