    Sunset Grille - all the way!

    Stick with the Sunset Grille... They have the best beef, and I've had the best steaks of my life there - and being a carnivore, I've eaten at most of the big name steak houses. Sunset uses USDA Prime which is the highest grade available.... LG's features UDSA Certified Angus Beef which is fantastic quality, but can be Choice grade rather than Prime.

    If you're at the Radisson, you'll probably play in the Casino. With player's club points, you can probably get a comp for dinner. The comp probably won't cover it all (If you order like us) but will cut 2/3rds + off the bill. The 2 restaurants we never miss are Mme J's and Sunset Grille. We usually do Sunset toward the end of the week and use a casino comp! Enjoy.

    cpjones,

    thanks, i've made up my mind to do the sunset grill, I'm not going to bother with LG's. We also like our share of Beef, but also like Italian, have menu's for Giannis, and a couple of others ( can't think right now ), Also heard that the Chalet Suisse is excellent, have you been there? I'm sure I will be the Casion as well, not a big player, tend to stay at the slots, not sure I'll build up to many points, but will give it a try.
    Also have reservations at MJ's.
    November will be our 1st trip to Aruba, I'm looking forward to much.....

    Excellent choice! We'll be having dinner there next Fri night and Mme J's on Wed! You'll love the Radisson too! We used to stay at the Hyatt, but switched to the Rad 3 years ago. It's every bit the hotel that the Hyatt is, but in a bit less formal way (we're just casual people). The pool is nicer and the balconies have it all over the Hyatt. We do, however miss the Hyatt lobby. We spend all of our time on the beach or at the pool just relaxing, late dinners and a beach or high rise walk before I spend way too much time in the casino and my wife turns in..... What a great vacation.

    We tried Gianni's last year and Suisse Chalet a few years ago. Both are great restaurants, but with all the wonderful places it really has to be supurb+++ to make our every year list like Mme J and Sunset Grille. We will be trying Wacky Wahoo and Yemanja this year for our first time - both have great reviews and good websites. Do consider Smokey Joe's for a casual rib dinner and our first choice for a light lunch (tapas and Amstel Bright) is Salt and Pepper... these are both a short walk from the Radisson.

    I could go on and on and on.... We'll be in Aruba in less than 48 hours and boy am I excited..... Lemme know if I can give you any other information. cp

    Cpjones,
    have a great time, please write again when you get back. You are your wife have a wonderful time, and you know that saying"early to bed early to rise", that why she hits the pillow early, can't miss out on what i understand to be a beautiful day and beautiful sights. I've never been to aruba, but am so jealous. Thanks for all you info. I might just try that smokey joes - you said its not far from the radisson ? Do you advise on renting a car ? My husband and i are kind of nutty when it comes to directions ? Was thinking about a tour, so i don't miss anything good.

    Kath2me, We've never rented a car... lot's of people wouldn't be w/o one, but we truly just hang out at the beach or the pool and don't want to sacrifice that time for tours and etc! Aruba is basically a desert island. The resorts feel tropical because of all of the wonderful landscaping and gardens and that's where we prefer to be.

    There are a lot of great restaurants within walking distance and for a downtown (or Mme J's) trip there is always a taxi easily available. From the Radisson, all of the the other high rises are within easy walking distance and the walkway along the beach to get to most of them is very lovely and safe in the evening.

    You and your husband can handle a 'left or right' as you walk toward the beach or the street w/o having to get nutty about directions when you walk somewhere! You may be jealous about our trip tomorrow.... but the role will be reversed when you go in Nov and I still have 6-7 more months to wait to get there again.

    CPJones, You are right, I think we can handle the left or right out of the hotel, but behind the Wheel , am always the co-pilot, and I hate giving directions, I'm the one that makes us nuts. I think Taxi will be our choice of transportation. I to, look so forward to the just relaxing by the pool and ocean, having lunch and drinks right there. I don't think for my first trip am going do much touring, maybe one, so I kind of get a feel as to where everything is. We look for a nice day, a nice dinner, and a good nite's rest. I would also like to do one of those sunset sailings, that also looks very nice. Well, have a wonderful time and I am jealous, but yes, right back at you in a few months.
    Beachboy, thanks about your LG's input, but am staying at the Radisson and think I will be just as happy with Sunset Grill

    Kath2me, if you decide to do a sunset or snorkle cruise I HIGHly recommend Depalm tours boat, the Palm Pleasure...it is a great, great boat, and defiantely worth the $$ you spend. cindy

    I have to second this opinion. Sunset Grill would be a better choice by far.
