We cook in Aruba as well The only downside is the equipment in our timeshare. The stove is not great and the cookware is so thin, it's a joke. Everything will burn to the pot if you are not stirring constantly. I bring kitchen knives, tongs and a few other things with us every year so I can manage. The grills the TS provides are usually pretty good and I have no problem with grilling the usual stuff.
