This will be our first time to Aruba, We usually go to Anguilla this will be our first year in 8 years that we will not be going and we thought that maybe we should try another Island and we heard so many wonderful things about Aruba that we said lets go We will be staying at the Tamarijan. I have read so many reviews about what room or Block we should stay in, we would love to be on the sandy beach, but do not want to be looking at the ships that bring in the cargo! that not what I call a romatic view. We are leaving on April 9-16. what do you think about the upper rooms to the lower level rooms? Any idea on how busyit will be ther at that time of year I know that it just before school vacation, hopefully we won't have to fight for chairs and shade So any helpful information would be so great. We are hoping to fall in love with Aruba!
Shusun, welcome to the forum and you will fall in love with Aruba not just the island is beautiful the people make it wonderful. I agree with Arubalisa the 1100 building you would like. He is very informative since he is been going for so long on the island.

Definitely the bottom level. Cannot say enough about having sliding doors going out to the beach. We too were there last year with a group of 35 adults and children 'during' the holiday week. Not overly crowded at all, just be sure to make dinner reservations early if ou are looking to hit the restaurants as opposed to the buffet. Did not have to fight for a hut at all, although that could have been due to the possy we were with.
I've never been there at that time of year and I'm not sure if the time of year ("rainy" season or not) has anything to do with how many bugs are around. But, I always get eaten alive by some sort of mosquito/bug. It's a different type of bite than I get in the states though. The good news is that my husband never has a problem so it might just be me!! Now, I always bring insect repellent and that seems to work wonders!
