Hi, I believe I read that there are grocery stores that will deliver to hotels and the order will be there when you arrive. Can anyone tell me the names of them? Also, are there any exceptionally good candy stores? We are going in May for a wedding and would like to make a basket for the couple to leave in their hotel room. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help.

Ling and sons, order on line, have delivered to your hotel. Great service, no complaints, do it al the time..................
Don't know of any candy stores, though I would imagine you can get some Dutch choc in the grocery store. Now that I think of it, there is a nice choc shop downstairs in the Renaissance Marina towers, but don't know the name.

I was debating on ordering from Ling and Sons or just grabbing some yogurt, milk and that kind of stuff for snacks at the hotel. We are staying at the Raddisson, is there a store inside the Raddisson that would sell milk, water, and snack type things? Do they have little refrigerators in the rooms at the Raddisson?
Thanks for any advice.

Yes to both, but the refrigerators are first come, first served. Not sure about the yogurt specifically at the Radisson's shop, but there is a mini market a short walk away at the Playa Linda Resort.

Yes, the Radisson has a really good selection of yogurts, fruit in am.
Also, last year they were building lot of shops across from the
Radisson. Did those get built to completion?
If so, maybe there's a grocery/quick mart there.

Nice selection of Dutch treats at Super Food! Get some stroopwafels (warm them on hot tea cups before eating) and Scholiertje cookies with chocolate, Koetjesreep chocolate, and much more. Check also in their bakery for special cookies (pre-packed and fresh) and crackers (beschuit, Dutch jam, etc.) will make a fun basket for your friends.

I just went online to place our order at Ling & Sons for delivery to Amsterdam Manor next week (!) and April 1st is the soonest I can get it sent. Is this right? Do they only deliver one day a month? It seems like the first of the month is the only days I'm able to pick. I didn't think there was a restriction - it sounds like a lot of people here use them often. Am I missing something???

I checked online once and througt it might be a good idea to let them deliver,but looking at the list it was very limited.I would take a bus or cab and get the items myself.Ling and Sons has everything you need,but you would have to go to the store.

I thought about going there (and yes, thought the list was pretty limited), but I'm trying to order food for 7 people and have it delivered on the day I'm getting married (the first full day we are there). The list online was sufficient for what we want - just some sandwich stuff and a couple of drinks.

Check with the concierge and see if other grocery stores will deliver on different days. We shop at Ling and Sons and Honk KIng, both are good. It would be nice to have your food there when you arrive.

Also, depending on what day you'll be arriving, Ling & Sons may be closed. We'll be arriving Easter Monday, which I found out is a holiday, and Ling & Sons will be closed.

We've traveled several times to Aruba over the Easter holiday, both the week before and the week after Easter depending on our kids' school break, and we've never had any problems getting a cab at the airport or hotel.

Hi,
I am looking to use the delivery service at Lings. I looked at their website and noticed that they only offer a small amount of groceries for the online service. (No meat, frozen items, no bakery, limited drinks, etc.) Has anyone used this before? Do you know if they are adding grocery items? I want to use a delivery serivice but want to make sure they have all of my items that I will need. Thanks. :)

Some info at http://www.aruba.com/forum/tags/ling%20and%20sons%20online.html

I am thinking that they are not going to be adding any additional items to their delivery choices in that they just updated their entire website.

I'll be staying at the Marriott. Do you know if there is a little store near there to pick up the items that will be missing from my Lings order? Like bread, meat, bakery items? Thanks.:)

Arubalisa

Honestly, if you are going to need meat and baked goods, your best bet is to have the delivery for your necessities for the first morning and then take a taxi to the grocery store and back OR take the bus to the store and they will call a taxi to take you back to your hotel.

Another option is to stop at the grocery store on your way to the resort from the airport but if your room is not ready upon arrival, then there is the question of what to do with your purchases.

We're looking at the online shopping and notice that most important item(beer) can only be ordered in bottles, is there no cans or are some bottles aluminum or plastic?

Alic
01-11-2011, 10:55 PM
I sent Lings an email and the manager wrote back to me. She said if i send her a list of the things that i want that are not on the online list that she will be able to get them for me. The only problem is I don't know what items they carry! You might be able to list the exact type of beer that they carry...

Can you order online from Ling & Sons from home and have it delivered to your timeshare? If so has anyone done this, and how did it work out? Thanks for your help.

Done many times....
Its great for soda, juices, munchies, cereals, baggies, wraps...not perishables.
Its best you do your own "fruit and veggie" shopping and deli meats/meats and cheeses.
It is dependable.
They give you a time range. Just make sure you are there !

if you have internet calling such as skype, you could call them and ask, for just a couple of cents for the call.
i looked on their facebook page and theres is no indication of delivery.
i do know that folks have had lings deliver, but don't know of any recently.
sorry.
Thank you Andrea. I tired that link and sent an email but I have not heard anything back.
