Another great time in Aruba
We arrived at Tonya's condo and found it to be exceptionally clean, with all amenities in good working order. Virtually everything that you will need for your stay is provided for you and the kitchen is well equipped. The only thing that we missed was a local internet source, but there are a number of ways to obtain it on the island. I communicated by email with Tonya a number of times, and found her timely replies informative and professional.
As all others have stated previously, Palma Real is gated with 24 hour security. You will frequently see the staff making their rounds through the property. This was our fifth trip to Aruba, third time at Palma Real. The grounds and pools have been consistently well maintained each trip.
We enjoyed a number of excellent restaurants. Wacky Wahoo's, Blue Lobster, both within walking distance, and the Flying Fishbone. We went to Happy Hour at the Bavaria German Restaurant and Matthew's on the beach. If you want more local fare, head to Bingo's, which is only a couple of blocks away. For award winning local barbeque at local prices, check out Fermin's BAR BQ. It is a five minute drive and is excellent and casual, with outdoor seating.
If you want to stay outside of the tourist area, Palma Real is a great place to stay and Tonya's condo is highly recommended. We can't wait until our nest trip!
