My wife and I will arrive 03 October from the Detroit area for a week stay at the Marriott Ocean Club, any issues with the resort and it's renovations/pool? Our first time to Aruba was 9 years ago with a group of 86 fellow boaters, so much of our intinerary was pre-planned. We like just about anything that has to do with water, except my wife doesn't eat seafood. We would like to have a couple of mornings of scuba diving, probably an afternoon aboard some type of booze cruise and will rent a vehicle to explore many of the other beach's with a cooler, fins and snorkel. Are there any uninhibitated outer islands to check out? We wouldn't mind renting a small boat to go out and explore. Looking over some of the posting, it appears there are a number of great restuarants in the area of the Marriott. Nothing wrong with children, but we are traveling without any and will prefer activities targeted towards adults. If anybody has any recommendations or suggestions towards our intrest, please let me know. 7 more days of work, yes some of us still have jobs in Detroit, and 10 more days until one happy island.

welcome to the forum

go over to the culinary and culture and read about the restaurants

pretty much all restaurants are wonderful depending on what you want beef? fish? sunset? inside w/ air conditioning?

glad you have a job.

scan around this site and check the culinary AND activities

and you say you want to have lots of kids hanging around you.............NOT.

enjoy

[qII :D Welcopme Back to our wonderful Aruba. I enjoyed with my husband for 30 + years and my first trip back without my belovered husband whom passed away this past June will be for Thanksgiving with my children and grandchildren. It will be hard BUT my husband and I have been coming every year since early 80's and he wouldn't want me to stop. Anyway go to the Hyatt for a nice dinner at Ruins del mar. Request when making reservations outside dining to see the swans etc. Most boat trips do have lots of kids BUT you don't have to watch them GOOD THING. The Palm Pleasure has been our best. Afternoon one with no food.:doh: Good Luck Judy :rolleyes:My wife and I will arrive 03 October from the Detroit area for a week stay at the Marriott Ocean Club, any issues with the resort and it's renovations/pool?
