    Forum Member Robin has a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with ocean view.
    See post #9 in this thread.

    In Robin's signature line, she has a link to her condo unit for rent.

    I been to the condo complex and it is breathtakingly lovely.

    Contact Robin as this option might be "just the ticket" !!!

    Welcome to the Aruba.com Community Forum!

    Many awesome suggestions already. I agree - No to the AI, buy a few bottles at Duty Free at the airport and make your own AI for cocktails Check out Kukoo Kunuku for a fun night out https://www.aruba.com/us/news/kukoo-...summer-special

    Aruba has so many wonderful restaurants. I would not advise AI. Palm Beach seems to be where all the action is, but Eagle Beach is where all the sand is, by that I mean it is much less crowded. We usually stay both places. A timeshare is probably what you are looking for, however, MVC Eagle Beach (hotel) does have a couple of quad rooms that sleep 4, one room with a king bed sharing a bathroom with a room with two single beds. The resort is very basic, but the charm is wonderful.

    Thank you all so much for the information!!

    So, I’d say an AI is out. As far as location, if we go in November or December, will the Palm Beach area be crowded? Am I late in getting my planning started for a Nov/Dec trip?

    I hadn’t considered a timeshare rental, but might look into that now. I just don’t want to cook while on vacation!

    We usually go Thanksgiving week and I have not yet booked. This is around the time I at least book the hotel. We’ve found late November, early December to be somewhat quieter, but in the past few years it has gotten busier. If you do find a timeshare that you are interested in, there’s no need to cook. When we’re downtown at the Renaissance the rooms have a cooktop and a microwave. I have yet to cook anything!

    I personally don't mind cooking occasionally on vacation, but that doesn't mean you have to cook just because there is a kitchen It nice to have the option of having a few breakfasts or lunches in your space.

    It sounds like you book hotel and airfare separately. Is that the best way to go, rather than doing a package?
