I Love Aruba Our October visit to Aruba

We arrived on Oct 14th to face hurrican omah, streets flooded and strong winds. Two days later, paradise returned. We stayed at Amsterdam manor on eagle beach. They were great, on 4th day, all weed washed up on eagle beach was cleaned. We stayed for 2 weeks, and shame on palm beach. they did not clean up the sea weed at all. beach looked very dirty with drink cartons everywhere. it was a sea looking very black. eagle beach was cleaned and looked very clean and blue. The best beaches in Aruba were, Eagle beach, Baby beach, arashi beach. For property, arriving from airport, property looked very poor, and although the local arubans are not that poor, i have been told they just have bad taste in homes. The capital was very interesting and up in the Malmok area, up near the lighthouse, is where the best houses are to be found, very up market. The Goldcoast community was nice, but very much over priced. We had some great meals and cocktails. The Aruban people very friendly and helpfull. Some times tourists abit loud but ok. Overall, a great place to holiday or retire. Looking forward in returning.
