Hello all my name is Ro. Looking forward to our trip 12/12 - 12/19 2009. Don & I will be staying at Divi Dutch Village.
Our 1st trip was Feb 1981 stayed at Americana Palm Drive. 2nd trip 1994 La Cabana. 3rd time was just a stop off on a cruise. Boy were we surprised how the island has changed.
Looking forward to reading others trip reports so we can get info. We do not plan to rent a car so I asked at another forum if there were restaurants within walking distance from our hotel and got enough recommendations to fill a months stay! We may pick an upscale place for one dressy dinner---maybe Papillon, Papemento or MMe Janettes.
The reason we plan low-key meals is because March 2010 we'll spend 3 weeks in St Martin adn want to save $$ for Grand Case restaurants.
Welcome, fyi by staying at the Divi (AI) you can also have a very Classy & Romantic sunset dinner at Windows on Aruba, located at the Divi Links, for $30pp off the main menu. It's enclosed with ac & great ocean & after sunset lit up golf course views. Tell them your celebrating for a free glass of bubbly! And you can golf cart there & back.
