We enjoyed being in a quiet area of the island. We were in apartment D Studio, which was quite large and comfortable. The AC was good as well, and there was a full kitchen which we made good use of. We had thought the house was right on the water (based on the photos), but it is actually across the street from the ocean. But, since we didn't have any beach view, that didn't really matter. It was just a few seconds to the beach. It is one of the best snorkeling spots on Aruba, and many tourist boats come by there with all the people jumping in to snorkel. We would avoid those times, and then it was quite peaceful.
