Wanted to introduce myself. I've been reading the forum for a few months but decided to become a member. (Thanks for your help Andrea.) My wife Roberta and I live in Rhode Island. We have been to Aruba three times...all between 2002 and 2005. We LOVED it. For the next 10 years, we visited several other destinations in the Caribbean. Although we loved those vacations, we never found a destination as wonderful as Aruba. So, tomorrow, 4/27, we are flying out on vacation to Aruba! Very, very excited.
We are staying at the Hilton...formerly the Rad. Excited about that. We love the Palm Beach area and it's activity. (On our previous three trips, we stayed at the Holiday Inn twice and the Wyndham...now the Rui...once.)
I have a few questions I'd love to bounce off you folks if you don't mind. I understand there have been HUGE changes in the Palm Beach area. What can I expect? Any new restaurants worth exploring?
Also, how are palapas handled at the Hilton? First come first serve?
One more question...we don't have dinner reservations for tomorrow and would prefer to play it loosely. Can anyone recommend a nice, casual restaurant on Palm Beach within walking distance from the Hilton that we could probably get a table without a reservation? If you feel a Wednesday evening would be busy no matter where we try, I'll call in a reservation somewhere when we get to our room. We like Salt & Pepper but maybe someone can recommend another place. We like to explore.
Hope I'm not being a pest, lol! I'll probably have a few more questions. Also, if I should post questions in a different area on the forum, just let me know.
