    Sooooo.... today after checking my travel papers and passport a few times (they never moved) I took care of a couple of other duties. I called my bank to let 'em know I'd be using my cards in Aruba and emailed the concierge at the AM to be sure I had a bucket of Brights in our room when we checked in. I chose the romance package 'cuz I thought it was a great value and it also included a welcome bottle of champagne.... that's great for DW.... not for me!

    All my stuff is within an arms length of the suitcase I take and it shouldn't take but a couple of minutes to pack it. Still deciding on books to take and generally read 4-5 novels while I'm on vacation..... so I don't want to take more than I'll read, but need to have enough.

    Now I have to figure when I'll mow the lawn before I go so it'll hold for a couple of weeks. Haircut was done last Wed and I keep it so short I'll find time to simply buzz it myself Sat or Sun before we go. Still have to go to the bank for my 'casino stake' and to be sure we have lots of small bills for tipping. Still lots of other stuff to take care of..... Son Monte will take us to and from Logan and he's super dependable for the ride!

    There is a bus stop right in front of AM. It's just minutes to the high rise area.

    that is a concern of many.
    the AM is really not in an inconvenient location at all.
    as Peg said, the bus stop is right there.
    the beach is right there and in the scheme ofthings it is a quicker walk to your beach palapa from your room at the AM than from your room at the Radisson to the beach palapa there.

    also....a half mile away is the Alhambra/Marketplace/Manchebo/Casa Del Mar/ Aruba Beach Club area.
    very convenient to the AM.

    my experiences with the lo rise area is that when people transition to the lo rise/eagle beach from the hi rise/palm beach, they tend to frequent that lo rise area.

    andrea, I agree with much u say, however, honestly, i can't walk on beach, i just love to hang out in pool and Radisson Cabanas were always a nice price, so we get one of those for the week , it was the best for us . Waiting to hear decision on Radisson..
