    If you need to make an emergency booze run during the week there is a small store next to Wendy's called Stop & Shop down the street from the Mariott. Very clean, we go there a lot from the Westin.

    just a thought if u have room - booze at home- and -bubblewrap.
    Thanks for the tip, Andrea.

    I think we are going to try to bring a couple of bottles this time. The prices at our local Costco are so reasonable...and we'll have room in our bags.

    Note to DH....pick up some bubble wrap

    Can anyone tell me where a store is near the Radisson to buy some Milk , Juice and Balashi beer? I rather do it once I get thee, but I was able to find out that Ling does deliver to the Radisson, and I can set it up online before I go, but we are going for Easter, and Im not sure how to coordinate the "delivery" time" and I want to ensure we have the mini fridge in our room first, and see what kind of room we are dealing with.

    you could take large 1 litre plastic water bottles and fill them with your alcoholic beverages..... make sure that you label them. pack them in your checked luggage don't have to worry about bubble wrap, just cushion them with clothing.
    suffice it to say cap on tight.

    Within walking distance, there is a mini-market at the Playa Linda for milk and juice.
    For alcohol there is http://shopngoaruba.com/
    There is also a Sundries shop right there at the Radisson. Not sure if they sell Milk though.

    FYI:
    Do not expect to pick up Balashi at the duty free store. When I passed through there yesterday, there was no Balashi and it looked like they were selling off the last of their brights.
