    This is a great thread, since I'll be at the Tam 5 weeks from now, great info and pics (thanks Arubalisa!). We had originally requested downstairs, then after reading some reviews about safety we changed it to upper level. To be honest, I really don't care now which one they give me. I'll be a happy camper either way. We did request connecting rooms with the others traveling with us, and as long as they can honor that, I'm cool with anything else. We requested the 1900 block, but now I can see that there are ++ and -- to every block.

    I just wanna BE THERE!!
    the sun and the sand, and a drink in my hand...

    This could not be more true!

    Building 1900 with the Bunker Bar in the distance (obscured by palm trees).

    The Beach - you'll usually find me going back and forth between the Tam and the Divi

    Just a quick correction... I did say the bathroom door, but meant the bathroom window (sorry). I am glad to hear so many good things about the Tam! Again, thanks to all and keep 'em coming!

    My wife and I have been coming to Aruba 8 Years, 10 trips. We have always gone Non inclusive when just my wife and I go as we are not big drinkers and don't really eat all day long. For us to go All inclusive where our Timeshare , The Renaissance, it would be $260 a day and we nowhere come close to that amount. We get up take a long walk on the beach and then head for our Breakfast Buffet, we don't eat lunch and have normally an early dinner. So we on a norm average maybe $100 - $160 for breakfast and dinner. Drinks wise we purchase a bottle on the wau down at the Duty Free shop at the airport and get ice at the resort.
    Now last August we did take our adult children with us to the Holiday Inn and we did go all inclusive as we knew they wanted to Party, drink, and it did pay for itself and we had a great time.
    Some places include diferent activities in their all inclusive packages so make sure you check to see exactly what you are getting.

    Hi Guys,

    My wife and me don't like crouded places and like cooking and doing our own shopping. So we rent a bungalow, did it last year and doing it this year and we love it. We stay for a longer period, 4 weeks and then it's nice to have your own place to chill.
    It's called Catashi, it has it's own pool and it's near Nationale Park Arikok near Santa Cruz so you need a car.
    We got friends living on Aruba and its nice to have guests over, cooke ( the bungalow comes with a gas BQ), eat and drink with them, and afther a late night the can stay over. We got some pics of it on oure site. Here the direct link to Catashi Bugalow:
