Hi - We're getting ready to book our trip. Biggest concern is that many people say the beach is rocky - and in the water - at Tamarijn. What's the story?
we are booking all inclusive no matter what. Is the beach best at Riu, Occidental etc... we are two single girls who like to have fun but appreciate a great beach with clear water and sand etc... :o

2 single girls....i would think staying at the high rises are better - more things to do, more people (generally younger crowds). if you're looking for an all inclusive then the riu would be a good choice in the high rise area.

arubalisa would be ale to give you more details on the tam.

The beach at the Tamarijn used to be rocky.
It is no longer rocky with the exception of some rocks between the building 1500 - 1800. The beach looks great in front of 1100 - 1300 and 1400 and 1900 to 2500.

If you didn't book yet, I think Occidental is the best location for a bunch of single girls. Its within walking distance to some great bars, Hard Rock, great restaurants and it has great restaurants.
