I am heading back for my second trip to Aruba. I know many of you have lost count! How have your accommodations changed and why?
My husband and I went years ago and stayed in the hi-rise area. The island and hotel were suggested by the travel agent. The hotel is not something we remember (The Americana) except our room was occupied when we went to it. Aruba was memorable. We loved walking from bar to bar and renting a jeep for a day. The weather too!
This next trip has us going with college age boys and a high school age girl. Planning an island trip for the first time, we figured we would go back to one that was good to us. I really struggled with where to stay because I am no longer in my twenties and its been a long time. Will it be the same? I am going to try the Palm Beach area again with the Hilton and hope it works for everyone. The Hilton had the best price for 2 rooms. I didn't want a kitchen because I want a vacation from that.
I am already planning my 3rd trip if only in my head. Manchebo Beach Resort has been tugging at me. So, this is in the lead for first choice next time.
I would love to hear how your vacations have evolved and how decisions have been made over the years.
