    So at least $800 for the room per night, then $250 for 2 adults for the Thanksgiving buffet? $20 for a 3 year old?? $60 for a childs prime rib and lobster on NYE?? I dunno, I guess I would have to suck it up and spend the money before passing final judgement, but as I see it, they must be crazy. I don't care how many market surveys were conducted, I just can't imagine that. I'm sure the meal would be nice and maybe it will be the best meal ever served on Aruba. If it were me, I would survey all of the 3 year olds and ask them how well $20 to $60 worth of chicken fingers and mac and cheese pleased their pallets. Jeez.... what a joke...

    If you can afford the room, you can afford the buffet? But seriously with 81 hotels worldwide in 26 countries, backed by Marriott they know what they are doing. Their stock is up 57+% since the crash, pays a steady dividend and has split 4 times during that period.

    I would never pay $125K to buy a 2 bedroom lock out (I can buy a whole house that I can use 365 days a year, not just one week, many places in the world for that much) at the Marriott Surf Club Christmas week, but obviously some people have?
