If you don't rent a car you won't like the location, since there isn't a lot of shops of food options close by. But, cars are $30-$40/day and I HIGHLY recommend renting one. It opens you up to touring the island, going to Palm Beach, Eagle Beach, the downtown, and all the other travel spots in Aruba. With what you pay for per night here, plus $30 or $40 for a car, will still be cheaper than what you pay for in a high rise hotel. It's worth it!
We've stayed at both the high rises and here during our honeymoon. This took the cake. I couldn't recommend a nicer place to stay. The host is incredibly nice, the place is SUPER clean, there are only 2 other couples that are on the property (you each get your own villa that don't share walls) so there is lots of privacy, the place is cleaned everyday, there's a nice kitchen with anything you need to cook, I could go on and on. If we come back to Aruba this is the place we will stay!
