Nice Area. Hotel Resort very family oriented.

Nice Hotel by a beautiful beach. My one complaint about the beach is that I wished this hotel was more conscientious about keeping the beach beautiful, since it's the main reason people come here. Aruba is always windy. Everything at this resort is plastic & gets blown into the water on a daily basis. Plastic cups, plastic forks & knives, cigarette butts, plastic straws. you can take a walk at night & see hundreds of plastic items littering the waterfront & being washed into the ocean. They allow people to smoke at the cafe & on the beach, so if you're not used to cigarette smoke, that's kind of a bummer, especially if you're trying to have a nice lunch. In the rooms: more plastic cups, stir straws (each item individually wrapped in more plastic) all seems very wasteful & polluting which is tragic for such a once beautiful ocean. I'd hate to see the results in just 5 years from now if they continue. Ok, enough about resorts polluting the beaches... We didn't use any amenities at the resort at all. Bring your own towel & go to the beach! The pools at the resort were filled with children (no adults only pool) so it was nicer to just swim in the ocean. The beach there is great. Warm water & calm most days. There are 2 Whirlpools next to the pool which look like hot tubs, but they're unfortunately not heated. Internet was very sporadic, almost zero signal in the rooms, but available in the lobby. Sea Breeze restaurant was great, but the poolside cafe food was terrible.
