    Hotel for couple with infant

    My wife and I are starting to plan a first-time trip to Aruba in early December. Our new daughter will be 8 months old at the time. Just wanted to find out about hotel (or other housing) suggestions people might have that work best for couples with an infant. Thanks!

    We've had great success with family members traveling with babies and staying at the Rennaissance suites. Their rooms were first floor pool area so they could bring their baby monitors out to the pool area while enjoying the sun, and hear the baby close by....try it!

    you're best bet to stay at family friendly hotels such as the ren, surf club, and stellaris. i'm sure there are much more places that those are the ones i know for sure that are filled with screaming kids.

    the raddisson and the rui should be avoided as they are more accustomed to adults.

    No screaming kids at the Renn suites while we were there. It really is a great place for young kids, ask for pool view first floor and you SB all set..happy travels...

    The Radisson surely has families with children. They offer quite an extensive kids club program.

    really? i've always got the impression that the raddisson is more well suited for adults.

    to put it more simply, i've always felt much more comfortable at the marriott properties with my kids compared to the radisson. perhaps it's my own doing, but i've always found myself being more conscious of my environment and my kid's rowdiness at the radisson. i think it's b/c there weren't that many families there with young kids when i stayed there 2x.

    We were only at the Radisson once with our dd and she made out just fine. Our three other stays, there were always kids around, especially the shallow ends of the zero entry pools.
