Stayed 21 days in the Mango Suite.
Has a separate living area with an adjoining bedroom with separating door. Nice sized bathroom. Separately controlled air con in both rooms. TV that comes with multi-lingual channels. Free wifi with pretty good download speeds - but not fast enough to watch streamed video. Maid service once a week.
The pool is fabulous. There are lots of tiny lizards as well as iguanas that sun on the roof to take photos of.
Is 15 minute walk to beach and windsurfing rental.
Olivier & his wife are fabulous hosts. They met us at the airport, and drove us back at the end of our stay. On the way from the airport, Olivier stopped at a little grocery store so we could get some basic survival stuff for the kitchen.
They offered to rent us their personal car for $30 @ day. They also did a laundry load for us for $5.00.
TIPS: The best place on the island to get fresh produce is Ling & Sons (which is behind Super Store). Believe me, I checked every store..........
The best time of the day to take a shower is in the afternoon, after the water has been heated up in the pipes by the sun (Arubans don't have hot water heaters) - but is OK because its so hot.
You can go snorkeling off of Baby Beach for free
If you visit the Donkey Sanctuary buy LOTS of carrots before you go. There are a lot of hopeful donkeys that want a share.
