    after all the years i been going to ARUBA i have stayed at La Cabana and loved having a few drinks and then heading over to the Aruban ( old la cabana) for a quick run down the water slide, also the cheeseburgers at Key Largo Casino were great! Damn shame, i hope that whatever the Icahn Group do to this place is good. I remember when it was purchased from La Cabana about 4 year ago and i witnessed the downfall. Last year my wife and I went on a timeshare tour and the sales person was almost crying for us to purchase a timeshare there, i guess times were tough, i thought the lady was gonna pull out a gun and force us to buy.

    Cool

    Hello,
    It's good that a holding company with deep pockets and solid track record can now get beind The Aruban. It'll will be interesting to see what Ichan plans.

    My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon 10 yrs ago which led to us owning at LaCabana. We stay one week every year after our week at LaCabana. We like it alot and have fond memories.

    Whatever the outcome I hope Icahn Group can keep its charm and appeal for those who don't like the hustle and bustle of the high rises.

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Next to last paragraph...

    "...Otmar Oduber (AVP) during a collective press conference last Friday with the new owners, the casino will be open again at the end of June. Icahn Group will be looking for a new hotel operator. The casino will re-open in the building where Key Largo Casino had been located until recently. "

    I heard that they are renting rooms to students. Has anyone heard this? Would you advise staying there? Do you think that this hotel is strong enough for someone to rent a room long term?

    I cannot confirm who they are renting to however I would like to think that with Icahn Group behind them, they are financially stable.

    The Aruban Resort

    Was concerned that the resort was not operating after reading a disgruntled owner's review. It was taken out of context.

    Looking forward to my stay on my favorite island at the resort this week. Thank you for the clarification.
