    I think you may feel pretty limited without a car. There are restaurants within walking distance, but not many resorts. http://www.wikimapia.org/#lat=12.5513904&lon=-70.0547075&z=17&l=0&m=a&v=2

    Here is a list of restaurants.

    ---- Its a little walk but walk down the road in front of La Cabana to the Hospital.
    Will come to 5 resorts all close together(Costa Linda, Bucuti, Manchebo, Aruba Beach Club, Casa del Mar). All have a beach front restaurant. Also Alhambra Casino, donut shop, pizza place, Subway, bagel shop, phone center, small shops; are all in the area. First resort will be Costa Linda. There will be a access road near their front entrance that takes you to the other places.
    All of those resorts have a Web Site.

    Walking the beach the Costa Linda Resort is 3/4 mile and the Manchebo a mile.

    Next door to LaCabana is Amsterdam Manor. They have two restaurants - Passions (beach dining) and Mango's - and they also have a beach bar that serves lunch.

    Going in the opposite direction from LaCabana is Paradise Beach Villas which has Le Petit Cafe. Further down the road are two more restaurants: Chalet Suisse and Tulip. And a bit longer of a walk is the Screaming Eagle.

    The bus stop is also located in front of Amsterdam Manor and it will take you to Palm Beach (only about 5 minutes away) or downtown.

    Walking along Eagle beach is great. It is a beautiful beach. The atmosphere away from the actual beach is very different than at Palm Beach. Palm Beach has become a very "happening" place with the outdoor malls, restaurants, etc. Lots of places to walk and wander around at night. Some people like it and some people don't. Its a matter of personal opinion of what you like.
    happiness is going to Aruba with your adult kids because they still want to come with their parents
