    Which hotel will fit our needs

    Hi, my friends and I are coming to Aruba mid October. We like to explore the country, one day at the beach, shop, eat, gamble and experience local culture. We are not large resort people but instead like small hotels, bed and breakfast, or little inns. We like a little partying, we are in our 40's and 50's. With that being said which accommodations will fit us, MCV Eagle Beach or Buffam Tropical Haven? We like the price of both. We are not room people, preferring to be out most of the time. We use the rooms as a place to sleep and shower. We don't mind taking the bus but will probably not rent a car. We also enjoy walking.

    For a stay at Buffams, bus travel is possible, but keep in mind the public bus will not get you everywhere you may likely want to go.

    From the sounds of it though you will be very active and taking in the sights so a car would be the way to go.

    Keep in mind the MVC is on the beach and Buffams is not so that may be your deciding factor.

    MVC Eagle beach maybe right for you.
    The rooms are basic, almost barren.
    The grounds are clean and neatly landscaped.
    TULIP restaurant and bar is on property and both are good.......great menu at TULIP and fair prices.
    The beach is right there across the street and the bus stop is about 200' from the main entrance of MVC.

    Arubalisa and Andrea J thank you for your quick replys. I will be talking to my friends and I think MVC Eagle will be right for us. I am usually the one driving and I am not sure I am up to it. I heard the street signs aren't that good, but maybe I will drive for a day or two.

    we were rear ended once due to a woman not paying attention .
