If you are not staying preferred or in a pirate room, both Aruba and Jamaica are wonderful! Both are right across the bridge from Old Port Royale (dining and main pool). It's an easy 5 min walk that is beautiful! Also, the bus routes usually pick up Jamaica first, Aruba second and then make the loop around the rest of the resort. On the way back from the parks Jamaica is usually the first place to drop off, Aruba second. Finally, it's very peaceful being a bit away from OPR. Hope that helps

No. Preferred rooms are the closest to OPR and the main pool. There are king rooms all over the resort except the Pirate Rooms.

Jamaica is our favorite. Love the yellow color and it's a very short stroll across the bridge to OPR.

We always request Aruba and close to the bus stop. The location is right across the street from the main area (I can't think of the name for some reason). It is a longer walk to the dining area and main pool, but it does have a quiet pool.

So if you don't want to go with a preferred room I definitely recommend Aruba!

We've been in Barbados and Jamaica. Definitely preferred Jamaica. The buildings are just prettier and the walk to OPR was MUCH better!!!!

I liked Aruba! Close to the bus and a short walk to the OPR if we needed it.

if you are more than two with the child being age 3 and older you cannot book a king bed room as those are set aside only for two people and one child age 2 and younger in a pack and play. I don't know if you can ask for a king bed room when you arrive but wanted to let you know the reservation system will not allow you to book it if your child is age 3 and older

We've stayed in Jamaica and Martinique several times, Aruba once and Barbados once. I don't know that I really had a favorite among the villages but, if I had to choose just one, I'd say Jamaica.
