How close is Manchebo Beach resort from shopping?

My husband and I are considering a trip to Aruba. We are debating on whether or not to do the AI at the resort. The difference in price per day in $285 which I think is a little steep. I really don't see us spending that much on food and drinks. I was hoping that maybe the resort was close enough to shopping that we could pick up beer, etc for drinks during the day rather that paying the premium prices at the resort. Thanks in advance for any advise.

A short taxi or bus ride to the major markets.

That is a bit steep. That's why we like our timeshare so much-we get food for breakfast and lunch, some drinks and snacks and then dinner out. The food stores are not too far from you. You could catch the Divi shuttle at the Alahambra Casino and take it back to the Divi Dutch and just walk across the street. I'd be inclined to take a taxi back if you have lots of bags. Very easy.

You are walking distance to a small store. We also rent a timeshare which is less money than a hotel and will either provide a kitchette or full kitchen.

I think you can do a lot better than the Ai price. You have many places to eat at in walking distance that are really good. Taxis are not high prices at all or if you want to take the public bus it's very cheap. Shopping is a 5 min ride in to downtown. Highrise area palm beach is also a quick taxi ride to other food places and shopping .
