    Having said that I like the low-rise section much better, and we probably can't afford Bucutti again, what other options might there be, on the beach and NOT AI?

    other options would include timeshare rentals at Costa Linda, Aruba Beach Club, (BOTH on the beach) Casa Del Mar on the same side of the street as the beach and actually seems like on the Aruba Beach Club property. Throw in the Manchebo Beach Resort and there ya go......the low rise complexes around the Bucuti. Divi Dutch a timeshare place on the beach too. Then there is Amsterdam Manor up the road apiece that is just a wonderful place, again a hotel place, but the units are set up as apartments with full kitchen facilities. LaCabana, Paradise Beach Villas, LaQuinta and the Divi Villages, Divi Golf all timeshare resorts, all across the street from the beach.

    If you want to stay in the low rise area, you should consider renting a room directly from a timeshare owner. Most of the timeshares have web sites where members list their room. Not only is it less expensive than renting directly from the hotel, you also do not have to pay the extra (almost 20%) taxes for the room. I have rented a number of times from members at the Costa Linda and have never had any problems. The costa linda web site is www.costalinda-aruba.com

    Manchebo www.manchebo.com
    Look and call www.aruba4u.com for prices.
    >>> "renting a room directly from a timeshare owner"
    ---- Will find prices at Casa del Mar and Aruba Beach Club a little less. Also prices in like May and June even cheaper.

    i personally like the low rise better, i used to love high rise when i was single, but now with wife and kid on the way..low rise is better. Much calmer and not as packed at the beaches.

    I have a question. In the low rise area, are there any casinos? Or are they all in the highrise area. I know there's crystals downtown. My stepdaughter & her fiance will want to go to the casinos at nite and if they stayed in the lowrise area, say manchebo or bucuti, are there casinos there or do they have to go to the highrise. for the life of me, i have no idea why we never got to the lowrise area our first time in aruba but we will this time.

    Alhambra is near the Divi properties.
    There is major renovation going on there, but the casino is still open.

    <5 minute walk if they are staying at the Bucuti or Manchebo area.

    2 other casinos. 1 at the Tropicana has yet to reopen and their other casino is supposedly going to be rebuilt. a casino is being built inside the main building at lacabana. none of these are open yet.
