A few yrs back we stayed there with motherinlaw in rm. It was OK. Location, location, location made it all worthwhile. One could walk to the Alhambra Casino, the shopping compound around it (that opens up at nite-fully), and of course the most lively water in the whole hotel side of the island, as it has the widest possible beach... just outside your door... with rolling waves most of the time, as the island rounds a bend right next door at the Aruba Beach Club. Believe me, it will toss you around a bit... must really watch YOUNG children. On the premises are two lovely places to eat, French Steakhouse, and the openair breakfast/lunch type place .. Not to mention the lively bar w. great happy hr. in the tiki building not far from the pool.
We were very impressed with the way the staff treated us, and were very helpful setting up our confirmation of return flight. The small gift store on premises sold (at that time) the whole wheel of Goda cheese for $29. American. For a 10-lb. wheel.. to take home --remember, tho... it cannot be brought on plane if wax has been disturbed. Intact wax=no problem with Agr. Dept. rules.

Manchebo has the French Steakhouse restaurant which is FABULOUS. (IMO)
