I love Aruba & was sorry to see them rating on the #1 hotel in Oranjestad. I sure this is a lovely place, but why travel all the way to Aruba to be at a remote hotel? Any thoughts on tripadvisors reviews. Please note I did not mention the hotel on purpose. Would like to see how accurate these reviews are. I did contract Tripadvisor, but no response. Any thoughts?
I really did not want to cause any trouble, just wanted TripAdvisor to be aware. However they now have my hair on end. I wrote a review, & they will not post it. I will paste their response below.
Location: Oranjestad, Aruba, Caribbean, North America
Title: NOT NEAR ANY BEACH+ MIDDLE OF NOTHING
You go to Aruba to do beach activity. I found these reviews to be very misleading. If you do not mind having to cart beach chairs around, then??????? But this is not a vacation
Dear TripAdvisor Member,
Thank you for taking the time to write to TripAdvisor. Over the years, we've learned that a review without a substantive account of the traveler's experience is not very helpful to other travelers. Therefore, we do not post reviews in which the only content offered is a link elsewhere or just a couple of words.
very confused as to what they are talking about.....I do however agree that it is nice when on vacation to be near the beach...but when I am in Aruba, I am so happy to be there that a little walk to get to the water is not really that much of an issue....
