pool hopping is fine, just enter the resorts pool area, look around for security. Now run full speed towards the pool and weeeeeeeeeee!! go for it!!!.. then get out quick and run off to the next hotel.. thats what i do, and if your nervous just grab a couple of drinks at the resorts happy hour, u'll be alright. I will be there in 2 weeks, i can show you how i do it. I love pool hopping. If you dont pool hopp at least once during your trip you havent expericanced a true trip to aruba in my eyes. all the running gets me tired thought, but whatever!
