some people just prefer the all inclusives.....personally, i'm with you dannyo, i think it's a waste to be stuck on the rsort for everything in a place like aruba. mebbe, if we were in jamaica or something where they advise you not to leave the premises would i do an all inclusive.
We used to think we would never be able to stay anywhere but Palm Beach.
Once you start waking up and walking out of your room directly onto the beach you scratch your head and wonder why you rode those elevators all those years just to get to the beach ...
I agree with ArubaLisa...Tamarjin is a great value and the beach is the largest it has been in years with all of the rocks covered by sand. You can also use the Divi property which gives you some variety and the food is pretty good at the many restaurants on the property. You can't beat getting out of bed and strolling right onto the beach. The views are unbelievable.
HI! I agree with Arubalisa...about all inclusives..
we just booked Divi Divi for our family of 5 = all adults, 2 rooms...we went 3 yrs ago for our 25th anniversary. Just loved the convience and the hospitality of the place. Not to mention the beach. I wouldn't go anywhere else.... Our vacation is July 21-26... Can't wait!
Arubalisa..love your info and the photos. Thanks for sharing them!
