Another great trip!
Good flight from Newark Airport. Arrived in Aruba 20 minutes early, yeah!
Day 1 - Check in was a breeze. Bonaire Tower was closed due to renovations. Put us in the main tower, nice room on the third floor. Unpacked and got ready for the Manager's party at the Radisson. Free drinks and pick ons from 5:00 to 6:30. Music and raffles. DH won an insulated backpack. Will come in handy to carry to 2 6pks to football games. After the party, watched the beautiful sunset and walked over to Bugaloe Pier and had a drink. The band that was playing was very good. Stayed a little while and then headed to Amici's for some ice cream. After that, headed back to the room and crashed. We had been up since 4:00 A.M
The rest of the week, we pretty much did the same thing each day.
Breakfast at 7:00A.M. (we're early risers), Beach by 8:30, Lunch around 1:00 and dinner at 7:30.

Day 8 Beach Lunch Honored as distinguished guests being this is our 10th consecutive year and dinner at Passions The Radisson had a cake for us and pics were taken. Very nice
Day 9 Beach Lunch Beach Beach Beach Beach.... Stayed on the beach until sunset being it was our last day and just grabbed a bite to eat at Subway
Day 10 After breakfast got ready to leave. Said good bye to all our friends and went into our depression mode knowing we have to wait another year for our return.
All of our dinners were great. Too many restaurants to choose from and not enough nights.
Also, Senor Frogs is open, but lucky for us we could not hear anything from our room at the Radisson. We're in bed by 11:00 and were never disturbed by the music even though it is right across the street. No complaints except the trip flew by so fast. Already planning my next one.
Are the certificates given automatically by the resorts? This will be our 12th visit to Aruba and the 11th at LaCabana BRC. We have not received one.
We mentioned it to the concierge and one of the waitstaff at breakfast at the resort we were staying at that it was our 10th consecutive visit. (We were there in 1977, but that didn't count. It must be consecutive.) They did the rest for us. Also, the resort itself had a little celebration cake for us up in club room. It was a nice touch.
