The beach immediately across the road was a tiny shelf of rocks and sand, ok only for snorkeling. However, you only had to walk a few 100 meters to get to the wider, sand beaches beginning around the Ritz Carlton.
You need to go further down to rent a beach umbrella and chair for the day (Holiday Inn area), but it is just a 20 minute walk along the beach, so doable.
Not that convenient if you like a lot of restaurants and shops around. You need a car. Alternatively, I rented a mountain bike a 5 minute walk away at Aruba Active Vacations so I used that to tool around locally. And as I said before, a walk down the beach or the road (20 minutes) brings you to Palm Beach Mall and some restaurants.
Wifi was spotty, working better at night.
Stayed in a back (garden side) apartment. No sea view, but really the front is more a 'road' view anyway. The garden side is more secluded, quieter and, with few guest around, I basically had the small pool and deck all to myself!
That stretch of Smith Blvd. is where the hotels end and the private houses begin, and the road is a popular running/walking venue, heading up to Arashi Beach and the lighthouse. Good for active people.
Not a fancy place, but clean and good value. Fix your own breakfast. You can spend your bucks on lunch and dinner elsewhere.
