Look Beyond Resorts When Coming To Aruba

Aruba = beach = beach-hotel. Right? Wrong! Don’t limit yourself with hotels alone, no matter how good they are (seem). Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of situations I can think which that merits a hotel stay, however, there are equally compelling arguments otherwise.

Almost all hotels in Aruba will win the argument of being near a beach, but in modern tourism that’s not enough. My pet peeve especially is that most hotel don’t include internet (wifi) access universally. Internet is as common as telephone and television in my opinion.

A few reasons for choosing a smaller/low profile venue according to me are the following:

  1. Price
  2. Privacy
  3. Amenities
  4. Personalized service
  5. Non-commercial
  6. Local environment

To view a few such properties you head to my famous list of 50+ Place To Stay In Aruba. In the bottom of the list you’ll find the smaller places.
