    My next trip report will be more active and be more interesting I am sure....I had a blast doing just about nothing all week. I don't recall being that lazy on vacation before, lol.

    I am sitting in the airport. I wish I was in the AC Vip section but its closed for renovations currently. I feel like they have been in some stage of reno on that section for years, lol.

    I arrived at the airport and they were not checking in customers yet. After about 15 minutes the process started and after about 15 minutes the entire process was over, from start to finish. They have really sped things up on the way in and out of Aruba which is much appreciated by all. I am still "old school" and arrive more than 3.5 hours ahead of time...I hate standing in lines, and I don't really enjoy sitting around the hotel "waiting" for my vacation to end, so I just arrive yearly and play on the computer.

    Again we are all different. I can not put a price on the experiences the Ritz has provided my family since we become guests, their service is second to none. We love great service while on vacation and the staff at the Ritz simply amazes me all the time. Many of these people have become close personal friends and we spend time together away from the hotel as well, some have open invites to my house in Massachusetts and we will be hosting our best friend and his wonderful wife in December. Gabby, you enjoy Gold Coast I believe, I myself would never stay there as its not what I would consider a vacation... we are all different. Thankfully everyone does not like the Ritz or it would cost me even more to get the same wonderful experiences I have had over the past 5 trips there

    Thanks Walt. Maybe we will run into each other at some point as well. 2016 is the year of travel in my family, 2017 we will figure out how to pay for it

    Not Aruba related other than I am still in the Airport. I just watched one of shop workers steal the $3 I paid for my water....she did not ring it in but put the cash in the drawer....I had already purchased something there and my first transaction was done appropriately, interesting.
