One of the reasons he is a "one man band" is that they failed to get a quorum to vote in new board members and The Aruban's rules, which they hope to change, say you can't have another meeting for 2 weeks
from their board;
Hi All, This Aruban will be open Friday Morning at about 11 A.M. to start receiving guests. All of the initial staff are working so hard to get the rooms ready to occupy all the owners who are expected to arrive for week 9.
We repaired the leaks the slidepool and that will be ready Friday. We are now filling the waterfall pool today. That will take a few days to treat.
We also found a leak in the waterfall pool and that was repaired as well.
The landscaping we are working on today in the interior as well as the elevators have a full cfrew repairing.
The staff is eager for the owners to arrive. We are doing everything possible to assure that you will be comfortable.
Things seem to be going well...The "A" building (closest to LaCabana) is cleaned and ready, and the "B" building is ready to go except for the 4th floor. Hard Rock has taken over the pool bar and the grille area (light side food) They have happy hour every day 3 to 6 and from what I hear all seem to be quite pleased with what has transpired and to see the happy faces of those employees that have returned...... Both pools are now open and they just opened the huge slide the other day and the first person to use it was Slideking......... I arrive April 4th and am quite excited to be able to spend a month on my favorite island.....
I cannot as the 3 &1/2 weeks I pre-paid for were VIP Bonus weeks and not for my usual weeks owned...I only own 4 weeks in April at the Aruban. My other timeframes are at LaCabana......... It took 3 months, but, my CC FINALLY credited my account last week for the $$$$ I lost for all those pre-paid VIP weeks.....YAHOO!!
I would hold off for just a while to see how everything goes... I have no idea when they will be able to start selling..... I do know when sales are allowed to start again I am selling my 3 bedroom condos for less than half of what the asking price was and keeping the others.... We have just too many weeks and I bought the 3 bedrooms at the Aruban during the April time-frame due to my children's needs..... Now it is difficult to get them all together. It will be great to get a DD coffee in the morning I really didn't like the cinnabon coffee this Dec/Jan... I am pleased to hear you liked it at the Aruban and that was exactly why we started buying there...Good Luck and Have fun when you go...
