Okay, I'm booked for 6 days/5 nights at the Tam in June. What do I need to pack? I'm most interested in clothing suggestions (we plan to go to the restaurants some) and hygeine stuff (do I need to take soap? shampoo? etc). What am I likely to forget?
For dinners at the Tamarijn/Divi's ala carte restaurants: nice shorts for women and men, or capris for women or sundress. Collared polo shirt for the men and nice top top with the shorts or capris for women. If you tend to chill in air conditioning a light cotton sweater for these restaurants as well as the casino(s).
Shoes...anything goes, as long as something covers your feet.
Soap and conditioner at the Tamarijn are "all in one". If memory serves me correct, there is a body lotion as well. All lackluster at best. Bring your own, or, I buy the Aruba Aloe products right there at the Tamarijn's sundries shop.
thanks! that helps tremendously! I am used to cruising every summer, and it sounds like packing will be similar, but I wasn't sure just how dressy the restaurants were. I also like to pack as few toiletries as possible, so it is good to know what to expect. Thanks again!
Here's a little tip...
Behind the Alhambra are two shops (?) I believe, and one of the two has the BEST price that we've found for the Aruba Aloe products... the ones in the blue bottles.
That and (if anyone's interested) also the best price we've found for the Aussie Gold products. I tend to stock up on those because they're non-existent this side of the border.
Anyone want to send me a bottle of Ponche Aruba?
Mine's almost empty. Bummer.
Happy sunning/shopping... oh heck, just be happy you're on your way to paradise.

Growing up with an Army dad he told me to always roll the clothes-helps keep wrinkles out too. However, when we went to Aruba I "straight packed" because I figured it would be easier for customs to go thru everything that way. If it's rolled I'd imagine them unrolling everything and certainly not re-rolling it. JMO
