Last year, thanks to Irene, my flight out of Aruba was cancelled. While on the surface it sounds like a good thing, it was a nightmare. My hotel, the Costa Linda, had no accommodations. I was able to book a few weeks at the Renaissance in Oranjestad. After 14 years in the same hotel, it was nice. Way different but mostly I was preoccupied trying to get a flight back to NY (another story). One of the better things that came out of this was dinner one evening. Maybe I was hungry, maybe it was that good, I don't know, but the hotel had a buffet that featured a wide array or local cuisine and it was all delicious! From what I recall it was pretty reasonable too.
Does anyone know if this if still happening at the Renaissance and is it open to non-guest of the hotel? I'd like to try it again.
