Looking at first trip to Aruba

Hi There,

My wife and I are looking to stay in Aruba in February to celebrate of 40th birthdays. We're looking for an all inclusive place, preferably more geared to adults than families. Food and service are probably our #1 priority and I tend to prefer somewhere that is a bit more lively in terms of entertainment and activities. Any suggestions?

On the right hand side you will find: "Top Questions about Aruba" third one down is "All Inclusive vs Non-all Inclusive". Aruba does not have many all inclusives due to the fact that it is easy and safe to get around. Too many great restaurants to go that route. To answer your question however, look at the Riu if you want upscale A/I and it is on Palm Beach. More crowded but more activity in that area. Good Luck!

RIU would be the closest to your wants and needs. In February most kids will be back in school but you can expect some pre school kids age kids. You should consider staying open to non AI in Aruba unless there is a reason why it's a must.

I agree with others that the AI route is not needed in Aruba. I would look at the Radisson and the Hyatt.
