I have to say, I like the look of the open waters edge but Holiday Inn palapas look way too close together for our liking.
    The palapas at the Holiday Inn are literally touching each other and are either three or four rows deep starting right at the boardwalk. It has definitely opened up the whole beach area. Lots of seating now under the trees that was all buried within the old palapa locations.

    Okay, we've made it! We had great traffic to the airport, nice flights with on time departures and early arrivals. Our friends that are staying with us the first week landed before us and made it all the way to West Deck before pulling over and waiting for us. We checked in and put our stuff in the room before making a speed run to Superfoods. We're checked in with a room in a tower we've never stayed in before with a beautiful view of the complex, pool, lazy river, Nos Clubhuis, a lot of Palm Beach and ocean... and a view of sunset we think, we were at Superfoods when the sun set. Can't complain about that. For the first dinner we had a Marriott quatro fromaggio pizza and in true fashion wound up the night at Moomba. Our friend (and a lot of you know him) Matt (of Black Pearl fame) is now the bar manager at Moomba. How cool is that? He is helping with the big surprise tomorrow. All in all, Aruba is still here, as beautiful as ever, the weather is great and we're ready for the vacay to begin.

    Glad you made it safe!

    I saw Mat bartending at Moomba in December after my black pearl trip. He looked kind of tired but good for him on being Manager. He's a nice guy! He called me a cab but it never came. Hard to get a cab in that area. I walked to the Holiday Inn to get a cab per Tracy' tip.
