    Amsterdam Manor, anywhere with a hot sun and a cold drink.

    My first visit was in April 2013 when my wife and I went for our honeymoon and stayed at the Amsterdam Manor. As I've previously mentioned on this forum, the battle for our honeymoon spot came down to Aruba and the Dominican Republic, with Aruba winning out because my wife had been there many times before with her family (maybe 4-5 times since the mid 90's) and always had a great experience. Boy am I glad she won that argument (and she's won every argument since then, too), because I just fell so madly in love with the island that I can't wait until we go back for our fifth anniversary three years from now. We stayed for ten days when we went in '13, and although we'll probably only go for a week in '18, it'll be the best week ever.

    1st was 1989. for work and stayed at what is now Renaissance but it used to be Sonesta. Short 4 nights but loved it and been back since at least once every other year.
    Love Aruba

    It is Monday morning.. only 8:14 am and I am at the gate already.. No traffic from Ormond Beach (Daytona to MCO)
    For some strange reason it is not too busy here. Not complaining one bit. A very good start
    Took a tad over an hour to get here... then check in was a breeze, even made a stop a Mc D's for breakfast here.
    Now must wait till 10:45 am to leave.
    Think it might be a good time for a nap. Brought my blankie and pillow for the place
