    Ling & Sons

    Several of you on this site have recommended this grocery store. I have visited the store's web-site and browsed the selection of groceries. My question is: Do they only have the items for sale that they list on their site? (i.e only Beringer wine, and a very small selection of hard alcohol)?

    No they have many more items. It is a large supermarket. The only difference you would notice being from the states is that there are less recognizable brands, not US staples that you would be used to, but food is food.

    Of all the supermarkets in Aruba, Ling & Sons is the most like the U.S. It is a IGA store. They will have all the brands you are used to at home. Its very modern store and I find it the cleanest of all the markets.

    From onthegolo

    Our flight does not arrive until after Ling & Sons close. Is there a grocery store near the Marriott Ocean Club that will be open after 10:00pm? Within walking distance?

    "Open Daily

    Monday to Friday - 8.30am to 10.30pm
    Saturdays from - 9.00am to 10.30pm
    Sundays from - 9.00am to 9.00pm"

    There are no full size supermarkets within walking distance. You would need to take the bus, a taxi or drive.

    Location of high rise resorts in relation to the supermarkets.

Does anyone know if the smaller supermarkets where the locals buy are still open on Sunday afternoon? Or will I have to agree to paying $5.00+ for a bottle of Pepsi at the resort convenience store?
    Try the 24-hour-store across the Texaco gas station close to the low rise area!
