Hi - returning to Aruba next month after a 5 year absence and can't wait. Previously stayed at the Aruba Grand for the 7 years we visited and it was wonderful, clean, and great people.
The bar that use to be at the DePalma Pier, Koka's ... is it still there? We were there for the opening of that establishment and always found it to end a beach day or catch a sunset. Remembering those days brings a smile to good memories with the great crew (Baz, Jerry, Tim, Natisha, to name a few) that worked there .... was always nice to come "home" with a welcome.
