We're considering a trip to the Occidental Grand b/c we are OVC members, which means we can get a ridiculous deal to stay at the Royal Club there. I know Aruba AI is not popular on this forum but for those who have done it at the Occidental ... Did you tip? If so, how often and how much? We've been to the Grand in MX but not sure how this one compares. I've seen various reports on the view from RC rooms. Are they or are they not all ocean view? Is the beach in front of the Grand exclusive to the Grand or is it public? How casual are the restaurants (particularly the RC restaurant)? Are airport transfers included?
Would like to do a Jeep safari to see the highlights of the island. Recommendations along with prices?
Thanks for the help!
