First off, there's not much to write - the place is just as advertised. The grounds are beautiful and are right across the road from one of the most stunning beaches we have ever been to (including other beaches in the Caribbean). The unit itself (we were in E323-2) was XXXL and very well equipped and furnished. Errr.. yeah.. the TVs are old CRT sets, not LCD. But, if you're coming to Aruba to watch TV... DON'T.
The guys from Prestige realty - we met Raquel and Alan - are SUPER-nice and accommodating. The service was grade A and beyond. the location of the condo is a bit off - there's nothing around and you have to either rent a car (which is pretty cheap in Aruba) or take the bus (which is active until 12). a taxi to downtown Oranjestad or back is $10. We stopped in a supermarket on the way from the airport and stocked up for the entire 4.5 days we spent there and we didn't really need to move around much... we just spent our entire vacation right on the beach.
A word to those who have never been in Aruba - the island is pretty much one big tourist trap, so if you don't REALLY love the beach or beach activities (of which there are plenty -wind and kite surfing, jetskis, etc) - you won't have much to do in Aruba. Both of us are beach fanatics, so we had the greatest time and the condo was absolutely perfect for us. HIGHLY recommended.
