Best AI in Aruba with kids 16 & 20?

Looking for an all-inclusive, but don't see too many in Aruba. Any suggestions on the best one without breaking the bank?

We first went to the Tamarijn in 2007 when our kids were 14 and 17. LOVED IT so much that we went back two more times. This summer, we stayed at the Radisson, which is now offering an AI option. We visited the Tam three times to see friends and it still had "that magic" for our kids. It was like summer camp for them. I'd highly recommend it. You'll get a discounted rate for your younger teen if you travel before he/she turns 18.

I too think the Tam is a great place for older kids. The lobby area with the pool tables and table tennis is a good "hang out" area where they can meet up with others, there is an internet lounge, (not part of the AI but often has computers locked open) The entertainment team run different activities which they can dip in and out of.

The sister hotel, the Divi is a slightly more up-market experience, but not so much going on the for older kids, but by staying at the Tam, you get to use the restaurants and facilities over there so you get the best of both worlds.

Its not quite so "posh" as some of the high rises, so you don't feel quite so concerned if they play around, laugh too loudly, as you might do in some of the other hotels. Its got a really good laid back atmosphere.
