Yesterday at a cookout a couple was telling me they stayed in Aruba about 8 years ago at an all-inclusive in the high rise area called the Aruba resort. They said it wasn't far from Holiday Inn, but I cannot for the life of me figure out what resort this is. Is there one that changed names? I was thinking maybe the Occidental or RIU? We have mutual friends planning to honeymoon in Aruba next year and we had a full on debate on all-inclusive vs. do your own thing. Since we have done both, I felt more qualified to answer I am on the side of "do your own thing". It was fun though - even talking about Aruba makes me happy.
