I have been here every year for the 3 years!!!!! Its awesome, but, here is the deal.........The Hyatt is the nicest resort on the island, buy the most expensive!! When you get here, be prepared to pay $7.50 for an 8oz. cup of local beer. Not including a tip of course. The average breakfast for 2 is around $50. That's just to give you a base line. If you are rich and don't care, go for it.....If not read on.......I don't eat or drink here.....You regular folks, like me just need to use your head and explore the area a little. There are other great, much cheaper, choices out there to dine and drink etc..... For openers, I like my cocktails.....At the airport coming into Aruba, there is a Duty Free shop near the baggage carousel. I usually buy a bottle or two of my favorite booze, very cheap
there. I will keep that in my room, to sip on before we go out to dinner. While the wife's getting ready. Otherwise the surrounding hotels offer a nice happy hour, only for a few hours though, line 4pm to 6pm. They are nice places to go and be social. I like the Pelican Peir
near the Holiday Inn. It's right on the beach and the
Bartenders, Johnathon and Jose are funny guys!!!!!! As for
food, we usually go to Dushi Bagels for Breakfast take out or eat in. Ten $$ for your basic Bacon and Eggs breakfast. They also do a great burger for lunch. There also a subway and McDonalds near by. Dinner on the other hand.......Is where your gonna have to pay a little more no matter where you go. There are great choices all over the island. Just about everywhere popular serves a good meal. As for the beach. You need to get down to the Cabana to reserve your hut by 630-700am during spring and summer months. The Cabana opens at 630am. During the winter, high season, you'll need to get down there at 5am-530am. They go quick. No charge for these, towels, or chairs. There is a small section, where you can reserve them a head of time. That's $35 a day. I have been all over the Caribbean. Really!!! Aruba is by far the overall best. The other island do have their little nitch. But in Aruba you don't get that in easy feeling you get in those other countries. There is no place off limits in Aruba. You are pretty much safe wherever you go. I also recommend at least one or two excursions, while your here. Like snorkel, Jeep ride, quad tour, boat rides, etc...... There is plenty if time for sun. I hope this helps. I'm not cheap......I just can't see throwing $ away or being taken advantage of. When you come and stay 7 days or so......You could spend thousands, if you don't watch it. See you there.
