All Inclusive 4 Seniors

16 senior citizens looking for carribean all-inclusive from 10/29 to 11/3. Can anyone advise about any good packages and appropriate resorts for this type of traveler?

It would help to have more information.
What is important to you, do you like the beach, pools, entertainment, exploring, just relaxing, etc.?? How senior are you? Is a lot of walking OK?
There are tons of AI resort out there so more specifics would help narrow it down.

8 men with spouses
Poker group age 65 to 75
Beach, pools, entertainment, nearby gambling and relaxing
Not alot of walking
We got a great quote from Breezes, but someone said it's mostly 20's and 30's who go there.

Look at the RIU or Occidental in Aruba. I have friends in your age range that have been twice to the RIU and loved it. Location is good. Walk across the street for entertainment, shopping, additional resturants and then down the way to casinos or take the bus downtown for more.

Yes, I would stay away from Breezes. Most need lots of refurbishments.

I agree with KVR--Aruba would be great for what you want. Also, considering you are going during hurricane season, Aruba is your best bet to avoid any.
The Riu and Occidental are both great all inclusives in Aruba.
Breezes really is not what you're looking for. Young families tend to go there.

caribbean locations with gambling are: aruba, curacao, bahamas, puerto rico and dominican republic.
of these i too think aruba will work best for your group. it has nice beaches, 11 casinos and is easy to get around, and is normally easy to fly to.
as an option, have you considered a cruise? certain ships have major gambling casinos. limited walking for those who don't want to and shore excursions for those who do.

While you are looking at Aruba, also look at the Divi All Inclusive. They have little "casitas" right on the beach with a lot of palm trees and shade for a large group to sit under and enjoy. Divi is about half way between town and the high rise hotels. There is also a casino there. The beach at the Divi is not as populated as at the RIU or Occidental - not as noisy either with motorized sports. I see many older groups there when we are there.
