First visit to Aruba was March 1984 for our honeymoon. We stayed at the Concord Hotel. Favorite meal at Old Mill Restaurant.
Our 2nd visit was 08/02 (stayed at the Wyndham Hotel and was surprised that it was the same hotel as our honeymoon trip).
3rd visit Marriott 04/06 (our youngest son found out the day before our trip that his best friend would be in Aruba at the same time staying at the same hotel).
4th visit was 07/07 (took our teenage niece with us, and she had a fabulous time).
5th trip to Aruba, spring break '08. Stayed at the Marriott, newly renovated tower. Gorgeous room.
Our sixth trip to Aruba, spring break '09. Stayed at the Marriott again. We had a gorgeous room overlooking the pool and ocean. Our son brought a friend, and they ran into several other kids from their high school. A wonderful time was had by all. We booked the Blue Melody for the our third snorkeling/sailing trip.
7th trip spring '10. Son brought 3 friends. Two rooms, Marriott. Wacky Wahoo, El Gauc
Favorite Dining places:
Wacky Wahoo, Blue Melody grilled cheese sandwiches at sunset
