planning a trip to Aruba 3rd week in July- questions...

Jump to last reply

My husband and i have never been to Aruba. It seems like reading all the info, mid July will still be fine for a trip to Aruba. temps 80-90, breezy/windy, out of the hurricane belt.

There are great deals thru Am Ex, and I'm specifically looking at the Westin Aruba Resort (only like $185 a night), which seems to have nice reviews on trip advisor. Should we do all inclusive or not? an additional $1000 for 3 nights, 4 days seems excessive for 2 adults (That doesnt include alcohol)...? and it looks like everyone says there are a lot of good restaurants within walking distance.

also, does anyone have any problems with WiFi while on the island? its essential that we have contact and access with our office while away.

and lastly, if anyone has been to the westin - is this resort filled with little kids? we are leaving our 3 and 5 yr old at home with grandparents, so we'd prefer to not be around other peoples' whiny and wild children ;).

much thanks for the help!
