John Cole, who represents the owners of the timeshare apartments in the hotel, was also present. "This could not have been achieved without the government's support." He thanked the hotel personnel for their perseverance in Spite of those two months. Approximately 70 employees can get back to work and a solution will be found for the others. For the occasion, employees wore a T-shirt with an imprint or Minister Oduber and congratulations.
The hotel expects to welcome the first quests again within two weeks. "We must increase the reception of quests Gradually, as the budget is limited," says Cole.
Cole further stated that it had not been easy to choose a new management for the hotel. There had been approx. as candidates, but eventually was chosen Royal Resort. The company is also currently managing a hotel on Aruba, namely Costa Linda. After his speech, Cole introduced the new director of The Aruban Resort hotel. She stated she was especially relieved that the turbulent period for the hotel has ended. The hotel management will be officially appointed during a general time-share owners' meeting on Monday, March 8th.

Reason: triple post
I sat next to John Cole last night. He is a one man BOD for The Aruban until they elect other people. He has been instrumental in getting the resort up and running - apparently the people (mgmt. company) that were running the company "misplaced the money" (that's my quote as I was drinking a bit of wine and can't remember his phrasing). He said the resort will reopen Friday. I asked the question thinking he might hem and haw but he said Friday
