aruba is a pit
just a warning... it's loaded with people who are unable to take a dip in the sea without carrying a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other. draw your own conclusions but i think i'm pretty much on the money with my assessment. we stayed at a condo that calls itself a "resort" ...the playa linda. these units were as dreadful as the island itself. old, musty and in need of a full renovation. not much in the way of service either. so there it is. not for those who are looking for peace and outstanding amenities.
