We were there in September, which is when most children are in school, I don't remember seeing any.And it wasn't noisy, no rowdy adults. Everyone is given a bracelet to wear when they arrive,just a small cloth one, after awhile you forget that it is even there.They have one nice restaurant that is inside that I think you need reservations for, but we didn't go there because we liked eating outside and I think you might have had to dress up for dinner, not our idea of a relaxing vacation. I hope this helps.

We did not see a lot children running around and the resort always seemed relatively quiet. <BR><BR>Yes, you will be given a braclet to wear the entire time you are there. (We quickly took ours off when entering the more upscale hotels)<BR><BR>Yes, you have to make a reservation for the Italian resturaunt at Tam and I think the Red Parrott at Divi. For the buffet dinner you do not.

We went in October and there where no children there at all. You are going to love it. Aruba was the best trip I have ever been on and I am a frequent traveller.

You'll love it. It was in the high 80's and sunny everyday. The slight breeze there helps with the humidity. Have a great trip!
