We are a family of 4 (2 kids ages 4 and 5) traveling to aruba for the first time. I am having a hard time deciding between choosing an all inclusive resort vs non all inclusive. The convenience of the all inclusive is certainly appealing with the kids, especially since they are somewhat fussy eaters. However, I know there are great restaurants outside of the resorts. Our other priority is trying to find a place that has a kids club and 1 bedroom suites that will allow some privacy for mom and dad or at least a separated living area. The Divi Aruba and Tamarijn all inclusive looks great but do not have any suites and we would rather be on the beach so the other Divi properties aren't all that appealing to us.
The few we are looking at are:
Barceló Royal Level
Please let me know thoughts and if there are other resorts I should look into.
