    Help with location/hotel

    I am planning a july visit to Aruba with my daughters (17 and 15) niece and nephew (4 and 8) and adults in their 30s, 40s and 65+. Looking for a hotel with something for everyone. Thinking about Renaissance for the private beach but unsure about the location having enough to do. Also Marriott Stellars Resort or Hyatt Regency. Which would give us the best location and activities on sight or walkable? We are open to any other suggestions. Thank you

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum

    if you are looking for enough to do, with your mixed age group......go with palm beach area.......hyatt or radisson.

    marriott is at the far end of the palm beach strip so not quite within the action.but still a good option.

    i cannot dis the renaissance.
    love that place...actually love the private island more than the resort.the resort is tired and needs a facelift (ocean suites). the renaissance marina tower does not allow kids.
    but , there maybe little downtown to hold your group's interest.and the renaissance is smack in the middle of downtown.

    you should consider aiming for palm beach....hyatt, radisson, occidental, riu, westin and marriott

    I think a mix of that age group, I'd go with the Radisson...Its smack in the middle of the palm beach high rise area and has that age group mix.

    Our family group of up to 13 people has vacationed at the Tamarijn on multiple occasions. For a group we have found that all inclusive was the least expensive way to travel to Aruba. (When we travel with just my dh, dd and myself it is not necessarily the case

    When staying at the Tamarijn you also have use of all of the facilities and amenities at the Divi All Inclusive so there is plenty of variety. At both resorts children 11 years and younger stay and eat free of charge.

    Being all inclusive we never had to worry about being extra expenses. We all do our "own thing" for meals during the day and dine together every night together for dinner.

    Our daughter first stayed at the Tamarijn at the age of 10 and participated in the kids club which she loved. My nieces and nephew are teens and now young adults but they were never bored at the Tamarijn. At night the "hangout" for the kids are the billiard tables and large screen TV pit located between the lobby and pool/bar area.

    For adults there is the Alhambra Casino and Palm beach is a short taxi or bus ride away.

    Daytime activities there are the included non-motorized watersports and free excursions such as Boca Catalina snorkel tour or just a bike ride. In addition, the concierges can schedule any tours or activities for you.
