    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, as is Trip Adviser. Too bad they got it wrong concerning Eagle/Palm Beach, but maybe that will keep the crowds away.

    From the T/A blurb: "Aruba is only 20 miles long, thus easily explored by bike or moped".

    Obviously, as is the case all too often, it appears the writer has never been to the island, because although you could explore the island by bike or even moped, with the traffic, heat and hilly terrain, there would be nothing "easy" about it.

    Of course this is my opinion...

    This is not fair. You can't really judge unless you've been to all 25!

    Trip Advisor should send a bunch of us (me first) to all 25 beaches so we can do a real comparison.

    I feel this way about all the resorts on the island. Someone should allow me to stay a week in each place so I can make a fully educated recommendation/comparison
