About us (the reviewer):
We are a US Family of five who are vegetarians. We wanted to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary with our 3 children (ages 21, 18, 16). We have travelled to and vacationed in many countries globally. New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, India, China, Cambodia, UK, Brazil, Indonesia, Thailand and Maldives are a few places we have been to. Like most vacationers we have had our share of "hits and misses" when it comes to picking the right place to stay for our family.
About Serenity and Oceania Beach (the subject of this review):
Short answer is that this condo was Outstanding in all respects!
It was so easy doing business with Pat, Jill and Judy. Everything that is stated about the condo in this advertisement is exactly correct. Most of all, it is hard for us to think of another place we vacationed where the hospitality and care for us to have a great time was so genuine or so abundant. The condo has an awesome kitchen, that is fully equipped to make full blown lunches/dinners. The swimming pools on the Oceania property are very clean and extremely well maintained. There is superb Gym on the Oceania property. All of these are free to use. The Internet Wi-Fi in the condo is excellent. There are multiple access points and so you can switch from one to the other depending on the room you are in to get better signal strength if that becomes an issue. It was not an issue for us during our stay. Judy who checked us in was supremely patient and answered our many questions even when we called her later. Genuine customer care and service! It is very easy to drive in Aruba. There are 3 fantastic grocery stores within 5 minutes driving distance from Oceania. The beach is extraordinary. It is across the road from the gates of the condo. Beach chairs, towels are provided by Pat in the condo for use and return to the condo. The water was very clean, no sea-weed issues in the ocean. You can do jet skiiing, parasailing, tubing, etc. right on the beach itself by making appointments with the providers of these water sports right on the beach. The beds, Air conditioning, bathrooms, showers are as comfortable or better than what you might be used to in your house.
DIVI Golf Resort which is very near Oceania has a tour concierge service for De Palm tours. They provide excellent information and great discounts for tours. Book tours here.
We will be back!
Thank you Pat, Jill, Judy!
