    zeerovers is closed on Mondays...but if you are going there for another reason than eating or drinking that is different. Are you planning a fishing trip from there?

Grouper tacos over flowing all over the place. So delicious. Twist of flavor for dinner was great too. This trip are moving in reverse at a very slow pace. Up today Monday and it’s hot and sunny. Glad we brought our water shoes. Some coral made it tricky to enter water and leave without them.
    Heading to Zeerovers later to get some fishing set up. We are having a blast.

    Scotts Bratts went way down hill since Scott and Leslie's leaving. Our 2 nd year in a row, we were so disapointed. Got there at 8am and we asked if we could sit on stools till they open at 8:30. Brown hair girl seemed annoyed but said its ok. Not a friendly hi from anyone. An older guy got to order his sandwich next to us but he seemed like a regular. The old Scotts was happy, friendly and chatty and would offer a bloody mary,not here. As people walked up to order she would bark 8:30!! It was 8:30 when they started taking orders on line outside. I asked nicely if she could get our order. She proceeded to scold us, saying you must be on line. Now about a dozen people. We got up to leave when she barked, do you know what you want? We did, but we calmly left and her rudeness. Then she started taunting us, yelling Good Bye. Have a nice day and laughing at us. Incredible!! This is not a friendly Arubian place. A shell of it former self. Please do not go here. As you guys know we never leave a bad review. Sadly we had to this time.

    You 2 have been busy!
    Terrific.

    I am sad to read about your experience with Scott's Brats.
    Folks that run businesses anywhere, including Aruba, need to take reviews seriously.

    Thanks for sharing your stay with us.

    What a shame about Scott’s Brats. They won’t stay in business with that attitude.

    Sounds like you guys have found your groove. Sorry to hear about Scott's... glad you walked away, I would have done the same.

    No one deserves that type of treatment.

    Enjoying your report. Are you in an updated room at ABC? I thought I read they were doing some refreshing. If so, how do you like it?

    We are enjoying our trip. We are in an upgraded room, it is nice, not too much different. We had to leave Scott’s, we drove all the way there just for them. Wanted to get a couple bloods and enjoy breakfast, the vibe was not there. Went to Matthews for breakfast and they were so kind. They greeted us nicely and chatted about Aruba. Way better than Fiasco Bratts.
    Another great beach and pool day. Walked up beach near Chalet Swiss abs got a delicious lunch at the food truck, so good. We hit $5 Tito Tuesday at ABC last night. It was fun and right on the beach with a DJ. Great day, very relaxing.
    This morning we went to Bright Bakery for delicious treats. Back on beach now. We have been trying to set up a fishing trip, but the wind in the AM has been tough at sea, not bad on our beach. We are in paradise and are very lazy having so much fun. Running short of vodka, maybe the maid steals some, we can’t be drinking that much, can we?
