    I would have moved day 1 to the other property and if that was not possible I would have moved without staying and demanded my cash back. Hard to get your money back after staying 2 weeks-SMH.
    Trip 38 booked for Feb! Cant wait.

    Yes Andrea, this is the St Regis.

    Pains me to see the impact it has on the view / outlook of the Antillas. I think it is an eyesore and wish it had never been given approval. I had understood the land to be Green land that would never be built on (not sure how factual that was)....i also didn't envisage it being that over powering in its appearance from the illustrations i had seen.

    I am also sad to see the eyesore going up behind Baby beach. It looks so out of place and spoils the views of beautiful Aruba. I suppose the positive from these new resorts is the job opportunities they will bring to the local people.

    Just my opinion
    When i grow up i wanna marry Aruba!
