Great time great beach
Great place, lots of iguanas for kids to look at, close to Divi – great snorkeling and tons of fish to see.
Tips for Families
Bring a portable cooler to the beach – drinks are expensive and this is a good way to defray cost

We had two birthdays going on. They brought us a birthday cake, presents, and a bottle of wine to our room.

Great destination, hotel needs an update
Always love staying in Aruba, stayed here a few times a few years back. The first few times were great, as we kept going back the hotel gradually has gotten worse and worse. We had to move rooms a few times upon arrival due to the smell of mold in some of the rooms we were placed in. If they just update their rooms a bit, replace the carpet, the hotel could turn around. Checking prices this year for December are quite ridiculous for this hotel – $11,000 for 4 people when I checked. Personally I would stay elsewhere for this kind of money – the Hyatt, Divi, Occidental, and Riu are 10X more worth the money.

Bingo was good, don’t win very much I think they gave a bar drink or a t-shirt.
