Absolutely Perfect Aruba Vacation at Oceania 323-2 Eagle Beach
Submitted: December 19, 2011

My husband and I booked this unit after seeing the pictures and e-mailing Rachel at Prestige Realty with a few questions. We have travelled extensively and have never been so impressed with the quality of caring hospitality which was extended by everyone at Prestige. We asked for some grocery items to start us off and said we wouldn't be renting a car at airport when our flight changed to a late arrival. Rachel arranged for a taxi to pick us up and it was a God send since the airport was completely packed on Sat. because of timeshare schedules and we were about 45 minutes late. Our driver was right outside with our name and we were wisked to our condo. A delightful young man, Toine, checked us in, showed us around and we had to pick our jaws from the floor-the unit was even more beautiful and HUGE than pictured. The groceries were in fridge along with a nice bottle of comp champagne, we just paid him with a tip. So this unit is gorgeous, clean, quiet, has great beach chairs, cooler and is right above the pool that has falls, changes colors of blues through the night and has a sand entrance just like the ocean. Lots of loungers and shade with spectacular landscaping, too. Holy Moly, the perfect vacation ! But, it's just begun; we woke to a fabulous ocean view and a short walk across street to white sand with only a few other couples and families-no problem getting a palapa every day. We never did rent a car, but used the bus, which stopped right there (2.30 r/t for whole day) or a taxi to pick up more groceries. There are so many restaurants, but we walked to Tulip for several lunches and enjoyed it, bussed to Fishes and More and Casa Tua for casual dinners by the high rises-both very good. We walked to Chalet Suisse (awesome lamb and service), enjoyed a great dinner in bed at the Screaming Eagle (a must) and got rained out at Passions, but bonus - met a great couple at happy hour and enjoyed their company for our last days. We were going to do a sunset sail, but the weather turned a little iffy later in the week, so next time. We LOVED the entire property, location, condo and realty company and have never felt so "at home" on vacation. Many thanks; we can't wait to go back !
