    Hello everyone- newbie here to the forums. So 27 days 3 hours 15 minutes and 40 seconds until takeoff, but who's counting? I just want to say Thank You all for the good information regarding travel to Aruba this year. Can't wait to see the island again.

    Thank you for the wonderful welcome. I was wondering in light of COVID- have many of the restaurants closed? I see that Hopi Bon has along with A Taste of Belgium have- wondering if others? also, for the grocery delivery, do they require the room number? My husband and I own a timeshare at the Ocean Club, where we are staying and typically do not get an assigned room until our check in. Thanks again!

    no to the room number ...your names on the order will be sufficient.

    the restaurant on the hill (I cannot remember the name) ...lots of steps has closed and is for sale.
    tulip is closed, but we have read it is not permanently...time will tell.
    buccaneer has closed...was told it is not permanently...time will tell on that too.

    Andrea- thank you so very much. I guess I am just a little nervous about getting those results back from the COVID testing- we will be getting them done at CVS- while they say 24-48 hours there is no guarantee- so just trying to hope for the best but prepare for the worst- although quarantining in Aruba would not be the worst thing in the world

    I did read too, this was on another site that if you are required to quarantine, you can still pick up your car rental? We use Wheels2Go. And just thinking here- until the actual check in ( which is usually 4 pm at the Ocean Club, how is that time from the airport to the resort accounted for? Our plane is due to land somewhere around 2 pm- Just trying to sort out everything- so please forgive the endless questions.

    yes, folks that choose to test in aruba, can pick up their vehicle and then proceed to their resort.
    the resort will ask to see your paperwork from the airport (showing them that you need to be quarantined)
    you will be escorted to your room and there you will wait til the results come...6 - 12 hrs later.
    maybe the ocean club will let you in early, but if you are arriving and have to be tested, I suspect you will be at the airport for an hr.
    then add in the car rental transaction time and the drive to Ocean Club.
    that should bring you pretty close to 4 pm
    and nope, it is not ok to stop for groceries along the way.

    endless questions are ok!
