    Cool Change of Venue.....

    Well, I just booked for 11 days in June/July of 2015. I'm really excited.... as usual! After spending the past 8 or 9 visits at the Radisson, we decided to change it up and book the Amsterdam Manor for this years trip. Comments from Arubalisa, Amy and a host of others helped us decide on the change. We love the Radisson... but it's time for a new adventure!

    I booked thru MCM/Player's Choice with Guy. He initially indicated that he doesn't generally work with the Amsterdam Manor and doesn't book airlines without lodging.... that was all OK. Guy actually called me back a few minutes later and told me he'd make some calls and see what he could do. He really came thru with the exact custom trip that I asked for. We're doing the romance package, non stop Jet Blue with 'even more space' seats (already assigned) and no ground transportation. I can't say enough good about MCM/Player's Choice.... thanks again Guy!

    It's too early to start packing...... it's almost 200 days away!

    Any beach!!
    Nice! I think you'll enjoy a change of scenery. We enjoyed spending part of our vacation at the Radisson after many trips to the Divi. It felt totality different. We are booked for the Divi over Thanksgiving next year again and plan on adding on a few nights somewhere else. Possibly the Rennaisance.

    it's always nice to shake things up a bit.
    change is sometimes difficult.

    i am glad that guy at mcm was able to accommodate!

    for what i see, those that go from the hi rise to the lo rise......... tend to be hooked

    we have reservations for bananas apartments for early May.
    it took us a long time to get to that point...... hi rise to lo rise to downtown to lo rise and all around!

    Any Aruba beach...
    When we went from the Radisson to the Tamarijn I was in shock for the first 3 days.

    Once we became accustomed to our new surroundings, we wondered what took us so long to venture off of Palm Beach.

    Once we moved on to the Amsterdam Manor we found heaven. If you enjoy the Amsterdam Manor and Eagle Beach half as much as we do you will have an amazing vacation.

    Kudos to Guy for coming through for you. He IS awesome!

    In our 17 trips spanning between 7 and 15 days, we have stayed at many different resorts. It does make for a little variety. We have stayed at Aruba Beach Club, Casa Del Mar, Costa Linda, Divi Dutch Village, Divi Village, Divi Golf Condos, Divi Phoenix, Playa Linda, Marriott Surf Club, Renaissance Ocean Suites, Renaissance Hotel, Hyatt, Marriott Hotel, Holiday Inn, and Westin and Wyndahm(same place). The least time we stayed at any place was 1 night each at Holiday Inn and Renaissance Hotel. The most was 2 weeks at Costa Linda twice. The only trip we stayed for 1 week was our first trip to Aruba Beach Club. Since then it has been at least 10 days.
