    The Aruban has Closed

    Power and water was turned off today. I just called The Aruban. Guests have been told to leave their units. The Aruban is trying to find their guests hotel rooms.

    Hi,
    this is terrible. I am scheduled to arrive at The Aruban on December 25th. Do you know what they are doing with people that are scheduled to arrive?

    Thanks

    Wouldn't know anything happened from their website.

    Hopefully you guys will get some of your money back.

    Well folks I own a few weeks of a 3 bedroom condo as well as a 2 bedroom at the Aruban, but, this year decided I would use some of my bonus weeks. So I paid for 3 + weeks, for a 2 bedroom. "Bonus weeks" mean you only pay the maintenance fee per week..... That was a few Thousand, plus.............. So I have airlines tickets and no place to go for 22 nights.... It is a sin as the beach/area is awesome and it could have been such a grand place once again..... I look back and remember how it was when first built and the Casino was the place to be...WOW..... How time changes things... My heart goes out to all that are in the same position I am and lets hope that there is some type of resolution. Marl
