    help me choose between 3 resorts please!!

    This will be our second trip to Aruba and I can not decide between 3 resorts. Playa Linda, Costa Linda or Divi Pheonex. We like a little low key area but also like to be able to walk to places to eat and entertainment and shopping. Thanks for letting me know what you think.

    I'm thinking that the Playa Linda would be your best fit because it has the best proximity to restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Divi Phoenix would be a bit more low key for the beach.... but longer walks to what you said you wanted.

    We have stayed at Playa Linda, and have walked the properties of both the Divi Phoenix and Costa Linda to see where we would like to stay in the future.
    My top choice would be Costa Linda. The beach over there is beautiful, spacious, and low key. Across the parking lot, not too far you have the Alhambra Shops and Casino. There are excellent restaurants near by to wlk to and thwy had a fun happy hour with a musician. You are a quick taxi ride from downtown or Palm Beach in each direction.

    Playa Linda would be my 2nd choice. I'm not sure you would be happy with the beach there. It is not as wide so at times it feels crowded.
    I do not like the location of Divi Phoenix, my personal opinion, is that it is just off by itself and walking back at night along the beach didn't look like an area I would be comfortable in.
    7 trips in and still finding things to love. #8 will be great in November!

    I wanted to add that your check in day could make a difference in your choice too. Playa Linda is Sunday to Sunday, Costa Linda is Friday to Friday, and I think most Divi units I've seen are Saturday to Saturday. So if you are renting from an owner, those will be the days you will need to look for airfare. If you check in on another day, you could have to endure a room change possibly.

    Costa Linda meets your requirements...low key (beautiful beach area and gorgeous water) ...walk to good restaurants (plus the onsite food is very good.)Playa Linda is in a busy area with a crowded beach and the water is sometimes murky there. My second choice would be Phoenix...quiet, yet not to far of a walk to decent restaurants. If you wanted to go further up the beach for dinner and shopping the bus is safe and inexpensive and cab would not cost much at all.
