    Never been to those two, but the Divi AI is great. I think the Golf and Beach uses the same beach which is amazing. The pictures do not do it justice. Aruba itself is paradise. Different from other islands in that it's more of a desert type island (from what my boyfriend tells me - I've only been to Aruba), but I love it. The people are so friendly and I feel very safe there. No one bothers you on the beach which is a big plus for me. If you have any questions, this is the place to ask. Everyone is more than happy to answer questions for you.

    Have you done the all inclusive at Divi? if so how all does that work? Ive heard that its day by day. Is it worth it?

    We stay at the Divi All Inclusive so it's part of our hotel. I think it is definitely worth it. I don't know how much they charge you if you are staying at the Golf Resort and want to do the All Inclusive. Bet someone else on here knows! A lot of people don't like the All Inclusive feature as Aruba has great restaurants, but we are beach bums and like to stay right there - to each his own.

    Were going there on my fiance's parents timeshare points. So the all inclusive is a extra charge. not sure of the exact price but thats the reason were not sure if we want to buy into the all inclusive or not. Also my fiance is allergic to gluten so that alone is almost a reason for her not to do the all inclusive as Im sure we will cook so she doesn't get sick.

    Sounds like it wouldn't be a good option for you then. There are lots of great restaurants in Aruba and I'm sure some have gluten-free items. Put the request out on the Forum. I bet the wonderful folks here will have options for you. Have a great trip!!

    When is your trip? We will be at the Phoenix May 5 to 12. This will be our 3rd stay at Phoenix. You will like it there. Swim up bar and nice beach. We stayed 4 days at Divi golf a few years ago. Awesome pool there. Golf cart takes you to the beach and casino. You will have kitchen facilities at both resorts. A trip to the grocery store each week should be good for many meals. Gluten is in wheat and wheat products is that correct? There are some gluten free menu items at most restaurants as well. She could eat the grilled grouper dinner at The Pelicans nest. Comes with grilled fresh vegetables, rice and a role. Could throw the roll to the fish like we do as this restaurant is on a pier over the ocean.

    Yeah arubabob your mostly right. Anything with wheat, barley (no real beer for her), rye and almost all oats. Kinda a bummer but a nice weight loss formula. The other problem is if the chefs don't understand the gluten free process then its a huge gamble. Her allergie is fairly severe. We have for example different toasters, butter ect... I can't grill anything with gluten in the sauce and then grill something for her. Hence the concern. Do you stay at the old part of the hotel or the new? How deep is the pool? I should probably just PM you. haha. Thanks all for the info. August 9th can't come soon enough.

    Yes, I was surprised to find that BBQ sauce and ketchup can have gluten products in them. Anything that has filler or thickener can contain gluten. I also read somewhere that even some products that dont contain gluten can be a risk because flour or some flour product is used to keep the product from sticking in the manufacturing process. What type of reaction does exsposure or ingestion cause?
    P.S I pmd you earlier.

    Welcome to the Forum.

    Hope you have a wonderful birthday celebration. Of course, Andrea; Cindy, and the other forum members always come up with splendid advice. Horseback riding in Aruba sounds like a splendid idea. I do not ride, but am quite familiar with horses and how much fun people get from riding. The bottom line, of course, is there is no better place to spend a vacation or birthday than "Paradise," aka "One Happy Island." you will love it!

    So,with that said, "A Happy Birthday Wish in Advance."
