My first trip to Aruba is rapidly approaching! I'm getting very excited, but also trying to make sure I think of everything we will need before we leave! Does anyone know if any of the A La Carte restraunts at the Divi/Tam have dress codes? I'm mainly concerned about men's dress codes... not sure if my boyfriend should be packing any long pants and dress shoes?
We are also considering a dinner at Windows... Do they have a dress code as well?
i cannot comment on WINDOWS.
Tamarijn/Divi dress code is smart casual.
dockers and collar golf shirt for men.
sundress or short set for women.
no dress shoes required, but flip flops are probably not quite appropriate.
It's pretty casual, my husband has gone in to all the restaurants with shorts, collared shirt and sneakers! Even though Windows has more of an upscale feel, I've seen most diners in shorts. It's just too hot to wear long slacks.
My first year, we brought 3 or 4 pairs of slacks, a couple of sweaters and even a sport coat. I never even got close to wearing them. I haven't brought them back since.
If you're going somewhere very casual ... such as for pizza or ribs, I would wear shorts a tshirt or collar jersey. If we were going some place more upscale, again a pair of shorts and a nice tropical shirt or collared polo shirt.
My wife would wear shorts for casual and either capri's or summer dress for the more upscale places.
You may see people in jackets and more formally dressed, but they are the minority.
i remember my first time in aruba.......it was an overnight (1979) pre and post bonaire trip.
dress code in restaurants and especially casinos was way different than it is today.
i am glad things have casual'd down a lot.

PADDOCK - MADAME JEANETTE
First trip in 1983 and we stayed at the holiday inn, took a walk down to the concorde(westin) i believe. All i remember was that they stressed you had to wear jackets in the lobby....needless to say we never stayed there. The jackets would interfere with running away from the goats as you entered the grounds. Oh how things have changed!!!!!
