    Which hotel for 18 year olds?

    Hi, my friends and I are going to Aruba for our grad trip, and I was wondering whether the Manchebo Beach Resort and Spa or the Amsterdam Manor would be better for us? Which one has more activities and is more convenient to get to downtown? Also, which one has a better beach? Thanks!

    Both Manchebo and AmsterdamManor have great beaches. The Manchebo resort is directly on the beach. I can't help but wonder though if you might enjoy the high rise area more since you are looking for activities. Keep in mind when booking that some resorts require at least one of the guests be 21. I'm not sure if all resorts are like that but I have seen that restriction.

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum

    definitely many resorts do NOT allow check ins by under 21 would there be any folks going with you that are 21 or older?

    i too suggest the hi rise area as loads of activity and much nightlife there

    manchebo and amsterdam manor are ON the bus route to downtown or the hi rise palm beach area.

    the beach up that end is Palm beach

    Manchebo is a quiet resort on Eagle beach and it is lovely.
    AMsterdam Manor is also a quiet resort across the street (but no big deal crossing the street) at Eagle beach.

    As much as I, as a 50 something would not hesitate to stay at the Amsterdam Manor or Manchebo, DEFINITELY consider the high rise area for young people that age. Or the Renaissance downtown is another option.

    As a mother of a 20 year old, I would tell you that Eagle Beach area is NOT the place for you. Palm Beach/High Rise District will be more suited for your needs. You can get downtown via the bus but unless you are going there for a specific reason, you will find everything you need across the street from anyone of the hotels.

    All the bars and casinos are conveniently located along the "strip" of the hotels in this area including many restaurants. Radisson is a great location and hotel. There is also the Holiday Inn which is a few hotels down. However, I would certainly check on the hotel age which sometimes is 18 and sometimes 21.
    happiness is going to Aruba with your adult kids because they still want to come with their parents

    the radisson is a lovely resort, recently renovated.
    it is located on palm beach.
    quite possibly, minimum check in age would be more than 18 at the radisson? (at least 1 person per room over 21?)
    bus very convenient from ALL of the resorts to the downtown, to the lo rise/eagle/druif beach area and to the hi rise palm beach area.
