Great Aruba trip
Posted Jul 11, 2017 on Expedia
This hotel has by far the best all inclusive food. Drinks were great good liquor and not watered down. The staff was so friendly and tried their best to help you. Sandra form the royal club and Michael at the pool bar were great. I booked a regular room lateral ocean view, when I got there they upgraded me to pool and ocean view on the 5th floor, which was great because the higher you go the better the view. The room was so nice, then bed was comfortable. Our trip was amazing, but there's a few things I think people should know about. I had stayed at this hotel before when it was the occidental and they had a beach bar that everyone was able to use. the beach bar was gone and there was a smaller bar on the side of the beach that was only for royal members. They did have waiters on the beach serving drinks. When I went to the front desk and explained to the manager that I was on my honeymoon, had been there before and was unaware the beach bar was gone, she upgraded me to a royal band. There is a fee per night that comes with the royal band, but I was able to go the bar. That royal band comes with some other perks, there's a restaurant upstairs with delicious ala cart breakfast lunch and dinner that is only for royal members. On the beach there are gandalas set up, with plenty of seating. If you want a front row spot, you have to get there by 6. And again there is a seprate section for royal members. If someone owns a room there, their seat on the beach is reserved for them
