It is pretty surprising that a major Aruba resort could not complete their scheduled renovations before Christmas.
I sort of like reading "underwhelmed" We are fans of Holiday Inn and don't want the renovations to drive the demand and prices up
The new pool was open last year when we were staying at the Surf club and I wasn't impressed really either. I do like the idea of them freshening it up but we are just there for a bed and we enjoy the value and location.
