    this is all my opinion:
    they made it seem like scuba was the be all and the end all.
    they focused little on snorkeling adventures and shore snorkeling.
    they focused a lot on shopping downtown and we all know how sad and very quiet the downtown is.
    they focused little on casinos, although lots go to aruba for casino action.
    they did not give much time to the beaches.
    they did not give much time and scenery of arikok.
    no real mention of the modern queen beatrix airport and that us customs is based there making travel easy.
    did they talk of the native language "papiamento? the proximity of the island being almost outside the hurricane belt? tradewinds? low crime? the little unemployment? the good education system there?".............i stepped away for 5 minutes to take the dog out for her morning business and missed a little.

    i think it could have been better if marriott/hyatt were not involved and just left it up to the ATA to give its direction.
    I have to agree with you. I was hoping to see a little more also, maybe some of the great restaurants, our favorite taxi drivers...To bad I wasn't there when this was filmed you would have seen me passed out on Ren private island with 20 Balashi cans around me in the sand. :-)
