    They told me that there is a special menu for the all-inclusive option. So I went ahead and made a reservation there for NYE for 8:30. There is supposed to be another restuarant there but I am not sure if it is any good. I have posted below the LG Smith Menu that they emailed for the all-inclusive option for the Renaissance:

I have never stayed at Aruba all-inclusive before as I feel there are so many great restaurants to eat.

    Have any of you eaten at the Restaurants at the Renaissance? Are any of them great? I am thinking about still eating out a few nights just to hit some of the others.

    Also, are there any dance clubs downtown that are having NYE parties. We like to dance so are looking for a club that has dancing.

    Thanks so much in advance,
    Michelle

    Jealous! I wish I was spending NYE in Aruba ! Have a BLAST!!!

    Hey all,

    Just a couple real quick questions before we ARRIVE!

    Some of the FYI here says goods (such as in the supermarket) are priced in florins, but USD is accepted most everywhere. So, I'm sure I'll figure it out, and it can't be hard given the level of tourism, but how does that work exactly? If I'm checking out somewhere, do I need to ask for the amount in dollars? Convert in my head and pay in dollars? This is, of course, assuming I'm paying cash. With credit, there's nothing to do.

    Along the same lines, I'm also interested in knowing, although I've asked before, what the best way is to get some local currency? I'd like to bring home some coins, and if possible a few small denomination notes as souvenirs. Can I specifically ask for change (including notes) to be returned in florins? Will it happen normally? I think I'm aware I'll get lots of change (coins) in florins back, but how do I get small notes?

    I'm sure we'll figure it out, and of course, it's not a big deal at all. But, I've never been somewhere abroad that so readily accepted USD. I'd rather just use local currency than mess with converting all the time, but I've been advised to get USD from the ATMs; is that correct?

    Thanks all! Only a few more days!

    I am a coin/paper money collector over many years. I had absolutely no problems getting the various denominations of currency in both coins and paper monies to bring back over the years. The merchants will go out of the way to accommodate you. Again, this is part of the wonderful Aruba experience and what makes it "One happy Island," for both you and them

    I guess you will be going very shortly. Have wonderful trip and please give a trip report when you return.

    Health and Happiness to you and your wife.

    Hey all, we've arrived safely. Having fun. What a great place.

    Wife wants to find somewhere to get 'frozen drinks'. Preferably fun, cheapish, close, walking distance even better. We're in the low rise hotel area. All recommendations welcome, thanks.

    Also, how do I get to natural bridge? We have a jeep, just need to know where to go. Thanks.

    If u have a map. Look for the gold mine ruins. Once u get there continue going straight past the ruins, keep the ocean on your left. Natural bridge mave a mile further
