    Difference between Oranjestead and palm beach????

    I am planning a trip to aruba and narrowed it down to two hotels..The Radisson in Palm Beach and/or The Renaissance in oranjestead. Both hotels seem amazing BUT as far as action goes (nightlife, live music, downtown area etc.) Not necessarily shopping but more live entertainment and things to see within walking distance. Which part of the island do you recommend staying at and why?

    There is a new mall up in Palm Beach area. Also, Sopranos piano bar is right across from the Radission. We like Palm Beach but also the Renaissance too. We usually tag on a few extra days to stay downtown and spend 7-10 days on Palm Beach.

    Oranjestad is a downtown area. Palm Beach is north where all of the high rise resorts are located. Oranjestad is at the bottom of this map and does not show the Renaissance.

    We own and stay at the Rennaissance, and have been doing it for 13 years. When we are looking for action, we head down to the high rise area. We like the downtown location as we can walk to well over 50 restaurants. Our kids are free to roam the renn marketplace as well as the mall. The Renn offers the outstanding private island, a fun boat ride to it, outstanding staff, suites or hotel rooms...what more can I say??
    If you have any questions on the Renn feel free to ask.

    Arubalisa:

    Again, and constantly, you are a wonderful source of answers and information. I am printing the map of all the hotels...though, as you know, I have been to Aruba many times; I always enjoy your postings. A "Newbie" never has to worry about your info.

    Every year the Palm Beach area becomes more of what you are looking for, many excellent restaurants, bars and casinos, it's amazing how much has gone up there.
