My wife and I have been coming to Aruba for years. We've visited several resorts and heard lots of stories from friends and family. I've come to the conclusion that we have a pretty good thing going at Casa Del Mar. Following are 15 reasons I've come with for why I believe CDM is the best of the best.

1. No waiting in line for chickees or chairs. There always seems to be enough chairs
and available shade for everyone.
2. CDM is located on a point. The surf is robust. Fun for kids. Clean and refreshing
for adults.
3. Being out on a point, CDM has plenty of breeze to offset the heat.
4. Beachside yoga next door at Manchebo's outdoor pavilion. Even if you just have
passing interest in yoga, this is quite an experience.
5. CDM is located on Eagle Beach. One of the top 10 beaches in the world.
6. Shared resources with Aruba Beach Club next door for extra beach, pools,
and chairs.
7. Matthew's (CDM) and Ricardo's (ABC) restaurants. The food is excellent and
the staff is simply exceptional.
8. Big resort amenities with a personal touch.
9. Not just a home away from home, but a family away from home.
10. Eduardo's smoothie shack. This was a wonderful addition to our CDM
experience this year. We were able to cheat just a little bit less while
on vacation. Eduardo's smoothies are delicious and nutritious!
11. Centrally located between downtown Oranjestad and the high-rise area.
Day to day is relatively quiet, but only a 5-minute ride when you want to
go out and party.
12. On-site car rentals.
13. On-site WiFi.
14. At least 10 restaurants within short walking distance.
15. Alhambra casino right across the street and it's newly renovated.

Dear Jeff R,

Thank you for the very entertaining list of the 15 reasons why CDM is one of the best Resorts in Aruba and best values anywhere. Your list is very accurate; I would only add that the employees of Casa del Mar make the Resort the special place it is and are very friendly and attentive, which ties into your comment about CDM being a "Family away from Home", my favorite of the 15.

Thanks again for the review, we look forward to your next visit.

Sincerely,

Bob Curtis
General Manager

Resort is not very pretty, but has a good location and a lovely beach. Those staying here are mostly older people (past retirement age), not a great place for kids over 10. Staff are pretty unprofessional and seem to enjoy talking with each other more than doing their jobs.

For nearly 20 years we have been coming to the Cas Del Mar and look forward to it each year. The beach is great and convenient and much quieter than other places on the island. The resort itself has always been very nice but is improving under new management. It is well situated, half way between downtown and the high rises. A number of very good restaurants are nearby. The atmosphere is friendly and the staff is helpful and friendly. We do consider it our home away from home.

We have been coming to Aruba for over 30 years and staying at Casa del Mar ever since it opened. We have done time share swaps at most of the other resorts on the island and find that the beach at Casa del Mar is the best. It is in a unique location that provides nice rolling waves that keep the water crystal clear. There usually is plenty of beach for the kids to play games and make sand castles. The refurbishment started out slowly, but there is a clear plan to upgrade everything within the next couple of years. The kitchen is already done and has plenty of storage as well as a breakfast bar and plenty of space for preparing meals. The balconies are some of the largest on the island and provide a great place for eating a meal or enjoying a drink while looking out at the beautiful Caribbean Sea. There is entertainment on the pool deck almost daily and several happy hours at Matthew's Bar throughout the day and evening. Matthew's is a great place to eat overlooking the water. There is maid service daily to change your towels, make your beds and keep the rooms tidy. There is now free wifi in the lobby and a very handy paperback book exchange in case you run out of books to read. The staff is friendly and I think you would enjoy this resort on The One Happy Island.

Room Tip: WE like the side facing away from the pool because it is so tranquil.
