Condo located in Noord . Exactly one half mile from beautiful Palm Beach and the High Rise Hotels and Casinos.
Cozy, Clean Condo in a safe gated community. There are three Golf Courses on the Island along with the beautiful white sandy beaches. Palm Beach is a half mile away and Eagle Beach is not more than two miles away. Baby beach ,which is a must to visit, is at the end of the Island about 20 miles away from the condo.
The Condo is close to many good restaurants , recreation, grocery and liquor stores, banks, churches and pharmacy are within walking distance.
This condo is, by far, the best place to stay on the island of Aruba. We are thrilled to have stayed at Tanya's condo for the second year in a row. We had great satisfaction in our choice. From the security personnel at the front gate, to the friendly neighboring owners/renters, to the amenities in the condo, to the closeness of the shops and restaurants surrounding the nearby high-rise hotels, this place has everything you would need to enjoy Aruba to the fullest. A rental car might be nice, but is certainly not a necessity. Public transportation and just plain walking will get you almost everywhere you would want to go. The beaches nearby are far superior to any we've seen. After all, aren’t you coming here for the consistently nice weather and the selection of great beaches? People on this island (both the individuals that live here as well as the visitors) are all so friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the condo and hope to make the trip again in the not too distant future.
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!
This was our first vacation in Aruba and we were not disappointed. When we walked into the condo we immediately agreed that we had made a good decision. It is clean and well furnished with everything you would need to make this your "home away from home". The location, the security, and the friendly people everywhere added to our satisfaction. We have found there are good people all around the world and this is especially true here in Aruba. I wish we could have stayed longer. Baby Beach, as noted by others, is a must see. We went there twice. Plus, we would recommend checking out Spanish Lagoon a hidden gem that is a little off the road on the way to the Savaneta/San Nicolas area. This is a great place to snorkel. The area at or near the "natural bridge" is also a must see. A rental vehicle would be needed to get to both of these areas. And of course there is the obvious Palm Beach and Eagle Beach. We could spend a month just laying on the beach there. We would do it all over again in an instant.
Just came back from a week at Tanya's condo, it was just great. The location is perfect, you can walk to the food store, restaurants and the hotel area. The condo had all the amenities you needed and although there isn't an internet connection there are other places on the island that you can go to such as Starbuck Café. The beach chairs are very practical if you want to go to different beach, our favorite were Eagle beach and Arashi, These are public beach and they have palapas for the shade. It was our first time in Aruba and we're definitely going back, and we plan to go to Tanya's condo, we loved it!
My husband & I stayed at 4 condos during our 7 week stay. Tonya's condo was by far the best. The location was great, walking to stores, Palm Beach and resturants.
The condo itself on the 3rd floor was wonderful. Loved the space, the screens and the balcony. View of the pools and the RIU. Didn't need a thing in the condo, it was very well furnished. If wifi was added I would stay longer than a week next time.
This was our second stay at Tanya's condo and I must say it was better than the first time, which was great! We love Palma Real and especially being on the top floor with the amazing Aruba winds. We only used the air conditioning one time the whole week (the day we were packing up to leave). The screens on the windows made it possible to leave the windows open 24/7. Nice new fan in the bedroom was a plus. We love Aruba and will be back again in 2012. If you want a clean, convenient, safe place to stay with everything you could possibly need, this is it! Close to everything! Having the beach chairs to take with us each day was sooooo nice! It allowed us to travel to any beach on the island and not have to worry about renting chairs. But if you don't want to rent a car, the beach is about 1/2 mile away and there are 2 really nice pools on site. Just a great place to stay! Love the Caribbean Store (directly across from the entrance into Palma Real) for the coldest beer in Noord. And Bibi, Deni, Vera and the gang are the friendliest people on the island! This was our first trip to the Old Man and the Sea restaurant and we were not disappointed. It was very romantic, great sunset, awesome food! BUT there are sooooo many wonderful restaurants on the island it is hard to review them all. Thanks to Tanya for allowing us to rent her home away from home again! It has everything you need and is extremely comfortable and cozy. We can't wait to be back this year!
