    Traveling with a large group

    Some advice please. I will be traveling with a large group to Aruba next year. 30 people! It's a futsal team and they will be playing a few games in Aruba. Of course we're already looking for accomodations. Is it better for the group to stay in a hotel or could we rather rent a house. It's also a vacation for us so we do want a little privacy and the room to maybe invite guests, do a little barbeque, do some of our own cooking.
    I'm in the planning committee so can anyone here please give me some advice, ideas, tips plz

    If you are looking to do your own cooking the choices would be timeshare, apartment or villa.

    There are a few villas which would only accommodate 10 - 12 people.

    Your best option maybe separate timeshare accommodations for smaller sub-groups with full cooking facilities.

    For everyone to share meals, your best bet would be an all inclusive.

    When we travel as a family in a large group (10-13 people) we have stayed at the Tamarijn All Inclusive. www.tamarijnaruba.com

    If you wanted larger suite type accommodations for entertaining, you can also stay at the Divi Village or Divi Dutch Village through their all inclusive.

    lacabana

    occupancy A and C units 4

    B units, they say 4 but it is a tight squeeze

    E units 6 occupants

    your best bet and pricing might be the tropicana (behind the lacabana)
    the place was closed for a few months last yr, has a new owner and is doing lots to pack the joint. it is large, 2 pools, clean and has excellent pricing.

    i bet the group sales dept can cut you folks a wonderful deal.

    the name of it is tropicana resort and casino.

    we visited a friend in there the other day........pools sparkling, units clean, staff nice.
    4 minute walk to beach and their new casino has opened.

    The Tamarijn is 4 people per room. I am not sure about occupancy at the timeshare units.
