it appears to be a unit with a terrific ocean view. It will overlook the pool and bar area as well. If this is an RCI exchange they may not give you what is on your confirmation sheet- at least that was my experience. The one bedrooms are longish and narrow with a galley kitchen. Studios are one big room with a murphy bed. I have always liked LaCabana and we owned there for several years.
LaCabana’s pool area is very nice with plenty of chairs and tables. If you are renting directly from an owner, you will likely be assigned 442A. If you are exchanging through II, it is possible that you may be assigned a different unit due to the ongoing renovations at the resort. While 442A is not scheduled for renovation until October 2010, the resort could assign a displaced owner to 442A to provide the owner with a comparable view.
We just returned from the Aruban, which is behind LaCabana. LaCabana is across the street from lovely, sandy Eagle Beach, and warm, calm aqua waters. Both resorts share the beach. We had no difficulty walking to the ocean, but would have preferred to stay at LaCabana than the Aruban! There is an active sales force in the area. We were able to avoid the tour, but I believe they are offering a 1br Aruban fixed week, with 3 bonus weeks, for $7999.
