Considering a 1st stay in Aruba/Marriott Stellaris.....are there many "reasonably priced" family friendly restaurants and shopping within walking (street vs. beach) distance? Have heard that most things are pretty expensive in Aruba - how expensive is it for a typical lunch or dinner per person compared to avg. big city in U.S.?
Also, do you feel it is necessary to rent a car? We've stayed in Riviera Maya several times at All Inclusives and are totally fine staying at the resort and/or short walks to shops or restaurants.
