    Bed bugs in hotels?

    Has anyone heard anything about Arubs hotels having bed bugs? I am going in Jan 2011 and satyign at the Occidental and just red someone got bed bugs. Has anyone heard more about this? Just worried if it was a fluke, a bad reviewer maybe lying, or is Aruba infested?

    Thanks-

    It certainly seems like bedbugs are becoming more and more common in general. Our company has had to change hotel providers in several cities over the last year because of bedbug infestations.

    I've heard you should:
    check the mattress
    don't put suitcases on the floor
    when you get home, put everything in the dryer to kill any bugs and eggs

    Yes, the whole idea is totally gross, but the little buggers seem to popping up everywhere these days.

    Bed bugs - it's true!!!

    My girlfriend just flew back from Aruba Wednesday night and said that many people were checking out of the Occidental because of bed bugs. We are scheduled to go in May but I'm now looking to change hotels (even though May is 5 months away).
