    A big(preferably King),comfy bed and pillows,close to beach,balcony or patio,small fridge. We tend to sleep,shower and change in our room. We almost never turn on the tv so this is something we would not miss (funny because the TV is usually on whenever someone is home).

    A clean room, nice view. King size very comfortable bed and pillows. Fridge big enough for snacks (left overs) microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, pool and hot tub.
    Nice view would be nice. Walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and local places. Would like to be in a nice area where I feel safe that when we do go out for late evenings..
    Wifi would be nice but could live without it since my phone is able to do that and most places have free wifi..

    In another year or so I will probably have to add Jacki's must have to my list. When that happens I will have to seriously consider other options when visiting other than a large hotel room. Another project for me when in Aruba...investigating the 1BR options on Palm Beach.

    We look for easy walking distance to the beach 1st, then walking distance to restaurants, bars, and casinos as a close 2nd. Studio rooms or basic hotel rooms work for us but a comfortable bed and good water pressure in the shower are must-haves. A mini fridge or larger is a nice addition. I think we would love a one bedroom but we really don't need it.
    I used to think the view wasn't important until I stayed in a room with an amazing view, now I look for that too.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    MUST have:
    1. It has to be clean...entire unit including the bathroom. We checked into an Aruba resort on our honeymoon and were out of that resort as fast as my husband could call and find us another place to stay. Sorry I just do not tolerate pubic hairs left behind from previous guests. Yellow caution tape across the sliding glass door and a green swimming pool did not do anything to help the situation.

    2. After 7 years as an EMT, now with a bad back- NEED a comfortable bed.

    3. We go to Aruba for the beach. Beach within walking distance. No rocks and no swim shoes required.

    View is not that important because we do not spend much time in our room except to sleep.

    I can't tell if it's a good thing or a bad thing that cleanliness of the room was not even something I thought about!

    It's a Good Thing, I think - Could it be that I've been spoiled by having great experiences in every resort in Aruba that I've stayed in? Become friends with the housekeeping staff at LaCabana? Have never had a single issue with regard to cleanliness so why would I focus on it, right?
