    everyone's tastes and dining budget are different.

    hope that you are pleased with your dining choices!!

    Matthews at CDM is within walking distance of your place.
    Maybe consider it.

    Gasparito(must)
    Driftwood(must)
    Windows on Aruba(must)
    Barefoot(must)
    Gostoso(must)
    Amadeus(not a must)
    Lindas Dutch Pancakes and Pizzas(must)
    Smokey Joes Island Grill(must)
    Que Pasa Aruba
    French Steakhouse(must)
    Bugaloe Beach Bar and Grill(not a must)
    Carambola(must)
    Passions on the beach(must)



    Also it sounds like a cab may work better for me since ill mostly be sitting around the resort (will probably pay for a jeep tour to the national park if you know a good company let me know ). I did find an avis rental for $194 for the week but with a $300 hold and any gas costs plus the risk of crashing or getting lost, cab may be better, im indecisive lol

    Was also thinking of a fishing charter for 1/2 day, if you know anyone.

Besides that my days will consist of waking up late, sit on beach or pool for 4-5 hrs . Then walk around a little then go to dinner and then maybe a casino at night (if there is one near divi village).

    We have always found that if using a taxi only for dinner and airport round trip, that taxi was less expensive than a rental.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Amadeus so would definitely try to squeeze it in.

    Thanks for the response,
    Do you have any comments on the restaurants I have listed?
    How about Taxi vs rental car? I hear some bad things about Taxi's but would be nice to not be liable for a car. Especially when I may not leave the resort except for dinner.

    Oh also , I hear that you have to wear khaki's and polo shirt to dinner most restaurants for dinner. Is this for ALL restaurants or how would i know before i go? I would love to wear shorts and polo shirt instead to dinner each night if i could.
    Any thoughts?

    there appears to be NO restaurants on your list that require slacks.

    nice khaki shorts and polo shirts are very acceptable and widely worn!!

    Cabs to restaurants no problem.Shuttle(golf cart with pull behind car) from Divi to Alhambra Casino. Also French Steakhouse next to casino is a good restaurant. Go to Aruba dude-your ex girl and other person will be the losers here!!
