    The difference between key and room:

    There is no difference in the meaning of the terminology. Industry slang for a hotel room is the word “key”. The words are not always interchangeable however. One would not say “ I would like to rent a key for the night.” Rather, one might use it the following way: “I built my hotel for $50,000 per key.” Usually the term “key” is used by hotel owners and developers.

    ....and I was just being facetious (and maybe hoping for 300 instead of 600) ...... So......"completion of the 600-key adults-only resort" translates to 600 new rooms..... egads.....

    the good thing and maybe I am being Pollyanna-like.......I am hoping that this will begin a transformation and upgrade of San Nic area. The residents of San Nic certainly deserve to have some upgrades.

    Secrets are all inclusive so I really am not sure about an upgrades to the area, as it wouldn't benefit the company. I think their clientele is typically looking to stay on the resort.

    well maybe, but look at the folks that stay at the Tamarijn, Riu, Divi All Inclusives that take tours and see lots of the island.
    many folks still arrive in Aruba without doing much homework, thinking that they will be resort bound.
    they are all happy to learn that Aruba is not like Mexico or the DR.....meaning that they can safely leave the resort for tours, shopping etc.

    also wondering how those Secrets' guests will react to the refinery view?

    I would situate the resort so it faced away from the refinery. The views to the Southeast can be spectacular.
