I just got this from Marriott and wanted to share with anyone planning on going during this time frame. There was a lot of discussion and misinformed comments in the threads on this last year.
"We look forward to seeing you during your upcoming stay at Marriott's Aruba Surf Club and would like to inform you that the Seaworthy's pool area will be undergoing a significant renovation and enhancement from September 6 to October 19, 2013. During this time, the Callico's Jack Pool with the slide, Lazy River Pool, Serenity Pool and Captain's Galley restaurant/bar will not be affected and will remain open."
Andrea, sorry if this is the wrong place for this, but I wanted to get the info out.
