    Booking anyday for summer 2017 !! info

    Hello , we are gonna book any day now, for a summer 17 family vacation June or July , leaning towards first week of july mid week to mid week .
    Wife and 2 daughters 10 n 16 .
    Amsterdam Manor is our choice of Hotel.

    Is a rental car needed for excursions or is transportation plentiful for that and shopping?
    We will most likely be shopping for breakfast , snacks and lunches and going out for dinners. What restaurants do you all suggest ? American Cuisine nothing to ethnic .
    Is our own Alcohol allowed on the beaches. ( where to buy?) What beaches should we visit? Facilities?

    Anything that's a must go and experience ?
    more questions to come I'm sure.
    Thank you all in advance for any input.

    Welcome to the forum.... you will find the answers to all of your questions on the forum.... remember that tastes are subjective... so not all opinions are the same.
    You'll have all the beach you'll need with Eagle Beach at Amsterdam Manor.... you may wish to try others as well.

    check these tagged threads

    be careful that you do not overload on activities

    leave plenty of beach time

    i recommend a boat/snorkel tour/or sunset cruise

    and

    an ATV or Jeep tour or a tour in the comfort of a taxi for a couple of hours.....Bully is one of the great options.
    he can take you on an island tour, to the bakery, to baby beach, alto vista chapel and the lighthouse

    Amsterdam Manor is our choice of Hotel.

    Is a rental car needed for excursions or is transportation plentiful for that and shopping?plenty of transportation options. there is a public bus stop out in front of the Amsterdam Manor to the hi rise area and downtown.
    We will most likely be shopping for breakfast , snacks and lunches and going out for dinners. What restaurants do you all suggest ? American Cuisine nothing to ethnic . visit the culinary section. lots of great seafood places, lots of great burger, beef and rib places.
    Is our own Alcohol allowed on the beaches. ( where to buy?) yes, no glass. bring your own cooler. buy the liquor at airport duty free or at the aruba grocery stores. What beaches should we visit? Facilities?your hotel is at eagle beach and is less than 100 steps from Amsterdam Manor. there are restrooms, food and beverage nearby and watersports too.

    Anything that's a must go and experience a must do is very subjective. i prefer long days in the ocean and on the beach. many love tours. many (me) love the casinos.
    more questions to come I'm sure.
    Thank you all in advance for any input.

    Hi!

    Many of the excursions you book will have an option of pick up at your hotel. If not, taxis are easy to find and the bus is right there like Andrea said. Chalet Suisse is withing walking distance for nice dinners, Madam Janette's is a must for my family, you will need a taxi to get there. Barney's is great and more low key - one thing Aruba does NOT lack is awesome places for dinner!

    I would suggest looking into Jolly Pirates for a snorkel/booze/rope swing into the ocean adventure and DePalm Island - an all inclusive day trip with food, alcohol & snorkeling & a water park My kids (23, 14 & 12) love them both!
