    What Food Store is Best?

    I like Ling and Sons, as the store is newer and the set-up is easy - but are the prices among the food stores similiar or is there one better than another?

    Anyone ever do the delivery to your hotel room?
    Was it worth it?

    i prefer Lings too.
    I also like Super Food.
    My least favorites are Hong King or Certified.
    All pricing is similar/competitive.
    I find Lings has the best wine selection.
    Some of our members here have had delivery....maybe cindyo ?
    you may want to private message her.

    Our favorite place on the island, is the great beach at the Boca Grandi. The water is the best, and its very quiet.
    We enjoy the meats and breads at Super Foods.

    We always shop at Lings as it is very clean and the food has always been fresh. I don't think you'll get any bargains at any of the food stores, so we always go to Lings at it is also convenient to Palm and Eagle Beach (if you have a car).

    The pool @ Gold Coast Aruba, Holiday Inn Casino, Arashi Beach, Sunset @ California Lighthouse, Baby Beach, Our friends hotels/timeshares when they are on the Island at the same time as us
    Most of our shopping is usually done at Ling's. I like the chicken breast and the bakery over at Super Foods! We also do a lot of shopping over at Price Smart by the airport.(More of a Costco type store)

    We always shop at Lings. It's such a nice clean store and they usually have whatever we're looking for.

    I have found that the prices at Ling's are the highest among the stores. It's a nice store but reminds me too much of the USA. We prefer Kong Hing or Super Foods (we like alot of the Dutch products.) It's just all a matter of personal preference.

    We do the bulk of our shopping at Lings but end up in almost all the supermarkets looking for specific items that are out of stock at Lings.
