Good going, Randi! We pay the big $$$ also, and are entitled to peace, respect, and consideration. If anyone wants to start a petition, I'm on board!
I got an answer from the manager. He states that as owners they are entitled to the same rights as any other owner.
I will discuss this with him when I get down there and report back. He is right if they are owners what can he really do, however, if they are renting from someone else that is another story. Perhaps some of you who have been at the Marriott at this time period may want to discuss this further with the managers of all three complexes.
However, I would caution you to stick to the facts. People being rude is not something that management can do anything about, what they can do is to ensure that children are not being unruly and if children or adults are being destructive they deal with it. From what I have heard (only second hand) is that security is just letting things go out of exasperation. Management can only deal with things if they know about it and they will not react well or take things seriously if you don't stick to the facts (no racist comments!).
I can't believe, that a whole group such as that all own at the marriott as I heard when I was down there that they have been "told not to return" to other establishments on the island.So they probably rent from someone or just book online I see you can do that on the website. It is just a live and learn don't go at that time. Well when your playing ding dong ditch at 10;30 at night or climbing all over the pool rocks and yelling at 11;00 p.m. that is definately unruly behavior.
Thanks randi I am sure you will get to the bottom of this situation.
re: an online petition
this is probably not an option for this site
the site is owned, managed and operated by the Aruba Tourism Authority
the ATA is an arm of the government
so in the scheme of things, this is a government sponsored site
i did write to the "powers that be"
with great certainty i can say sponsoring the petition on this forum will not be allowed
in my writing to the marketing director, i also asked if a link can be provided to an online petition.
i am guessing the answer will be no to that as well.
randi: You are absolutely right "..."This is just fact based on the people in this groups behavouir nothing to do with their religion." I am sure that it would be hard to misconstrue Andrea's comments or think they are antisemitic. Such behavior is unacceptable.
As an owner at the Ocean Club, I am primarily concerned about destruction of property. I do not own during this season and miss witnessing the chaos firsthand. However, this isn't fair to others who unknowingly vacation during "hell week"and expect a peaceful, relaxing vacation. If it WAS me, I'd be demanding a refund! Children disrespectful of the rules, being unsupervised and unruly should not be tolorated. The entire issue has nothing to do with what religion the people are. I saw this link on another site. http://sephardicaruba.com/
Could they be running their own "camp"? Would this be against Marriot regulations? I won't be there till May to ask questions at the Managers meeting. I'm not sure if most of the adults own at the SC or OC or rent from private owners, and of course the Hotel also. I hope whatever deposit is given is enough to cover damages, our fees are high enough. Would be happy to sign any petition.
