|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
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.
I've been to Aruba many times, this is the first time I stayed in a condo. I was a little concerned when I found out there is no elevator since I just had surgery a month ago , but it was only three flights of stairs. I found the place extremely quaint. It was clean and had everything that you would find at home. And since I traveled alone the 24/7 security was awesome and very friendly. The room is right across from the pool so if you don't want to go to beach, you don't have to. I would recommend to anyone to stay there. I did not Rent-A-Car I enjoyed walking and there are restaraunts within walking distance. Thank you Tanya!
We loved our stay at Tanya's place - the condo was clean and well furnished, and the condo community was very clean and people were extremely friendly. Tanya was easy to work with and very nice! We ended up renting a car just because it was a little too far to walk to the beach and to the grocery store, but you could do it by taxi or bus if you wanted to. Super Foods was the supermarket we used - it seemed to be the most like our grocery store at home. The small local market was very expensive. Once we got used to the way the locals drive (oh my gosh they're crazy) we did all right with finding our way around. The condo is very close to a Dutch pancake house called Linda's - definitely worth a visit! When we go again (and we will definitely try to stay in the same condo!) we'll make sure to change some money over to florin - we found that when we paid with US dollars, we would frequently get change back in florin - which didn't really work out because of the exchange rate. That was really the only issue we had. We love Aruba and the people there!
Loved our stay at Tanya's condo. Walking distance to the strip and beaches. Can't wait to go back. Condo was perfect for us!
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.
Golf: Tera Del Sol 18 hole course
Divi Golf Course 9 hole course
One time cleaning fee per rental. $50.00 to be left in the condo for the cleaning lady when you depart.
This property can be rented for 12 months at $1,350.00/month plus utilities.
