We recently went to Aruba as it is a very short plane ride from the East Coast. Aruba has 2 distinct districts. The high rise and the low rise beach area where many of the hotels are located near the beach. We were able to use our points to get a 7 night stay at the Marriott Aruba Surf Club on Palm beach which was a 2 bedroom with a separate living room. This was perfect for our family get together and held 6 of us comfortably. The grounds were massive and included 3 swimming pools, a lazy river and beachfront access with chairs. There was lots of restaurants within walking distance which made Aruba a great family vacation!
