I was there in July and it is definitely much further along. The pool was fully tiled and the surrounding area was being worked on. I know they are hopeful to open in September so maybe we can get an update from a more recent visitor. I will be back next July and I know it will be done by then-even on Aruba time
Stayed at the Ocean Club last week; the Surf Club pool is not done; maybe by the end of September. There was water in the pool, and vegetation planted on the side, but a lot of work still needs to be done or so it looks like it does. They were also working on the new walkway.
