    even if it goes through, does anyone believe it will be up and running within 5-10 years??

    I am not sure on that. The beach in this architectural rendering looks pretty large in comparison to the size of the main swimming pool.

    You have to scroll down to the bottom of the article at http://www.diario.aw/2012/04/ruinana...-hotel-casino/ to view all of the renderings.

    Don't like how they have it up on a hill, it reminds me of the Rui which I don't think fits Aruba but that is my opinion

    One more step in the South Beach-ization of Aruba. Dont like this at all.
    I think this will lead to the end of the low rises over the long run. Aruba is trending towards one giant hi rise resort.
    Edit: Regarding the Ritz, there is only one good thing about that project - maybe i will be wrong, but i have a feeling it will draw people from the Marriott. Which will make it easier to get palapas. LOL
    Other than that, i think the Ritz is also a mistake. Obviously

    Where are they going to get all the construction workers for this to be done by 2014? Didn't they have a lot of problems with the imported workers when building the Riu?

    good question.
    there was some/much discussion on some problems that were related to some of riu's construction workers.

    i would guess that the aruba government addressed the issue of "workers" and the riu construction was a prime example. who is building the new ritz?
