    renaissance aruba - all inclusive

    Just booked our first trip to Aruba. Going in November, mid 30's couple who usually do St.Maarten, Antigua etc.

    Canadian and doing the all inclusive - Can't beat the price difference.

    A couple of general questions.

    1. If you were doing one restaurant off the resort for a good meal, what would it be?

    2. For getting to the National park - Is public transit the way to go? Is car rental better (or tour provider?).

    3. Anyone know the house wines at the Renaissance?

    November is far off, and I don't want summer to go too quickly but I can't wait to check out Aruba!

    Thumbs up Enjoy the Renaissance

    If you are doing the Renaissance as an all inclusive, I would suggest you eat most of your meals at LG Smith's and Aquarius. The Restaurant at the Private Island is great for lunch. You have many choices for your special night out. The latest hot spot is Carte Blanche, where you and a select group of people have the chef prepare the food right before your eyes. Very difficult to get a reservation.

    Some other outdoor romantic choices would be the Flying Fishbone or Passions, Papiamento, or my personal favorite Ventanas del Mar at the Tierra del Sol country club.

    As for wine, you have many choices as they have many great ones from Argentina and Chile. Experiment a little. I sure you will find a favorite

    Welcome to the Renaissance! You are going to have a fabulous time.

    Best regards,
    Susan

    Next Aruba trip in
