    If anyone is still in need of an email address for the Hilton it's auahh_res@Hilton.com
    I find it ridiculous that they don't list it on their site. The 800# won't give it out when you call either. Three different reps put me on hold and came back and claimed they couldn't find it. I gave in and called the hotel directly and was put on hold for over 10 minutes. Veryyyyyyy frustrating.

    Btw.... the prices for the Hilton are less expensive than the Radisson next month.

    Correction..... the Radisson was originally the Aruba Caribbean Hotel.... the Carib was....

    "One of the crew members of the first aircraft that landed on Aruba stayed on the island and founded the first real hotel of the island, the Hotel Caribe in the Nassaustraat. This building, later part of the Spritzer and Fuhrman jewelry store, was an old Aruban house, already rickety and dilapidated, with wooden balconies and with a wooden shed in the garden which guests had to use as a bathroom.."

    "In the summer of 1959 the official opening took place of the Aruba Caribbean Hotel, the first luxury resort of Aruba. With the capacity of 120 rooms, the hotel provided jobs for 160 people, 120 of which were ‘locals’, the rest American managers. Harry Belafonte was one of the regulars of the ‘Grand Dame’, as the Aruba Caribbean Hotel was also called."
