    • You are welcome, Bryan. Happy to include your posts.
      Although I miss the vacation days, its good to be back to my routine and life.

      Hope you have a great weekend too.

    • Thanks a lot, R2R!

      I have checked for a flight and your Hotel – for 3 people (2 adults, 1 child).
      The price per person was 1,408 EUR (1,954 USD).
      One week holiday and I have to pay (with a few extras) round about 4.500 EUR.
      That is a lot of money! 😮

      Best regards!

    • That sure is a lot of money, D-S. Are you checking for a holiday immediately? We got our hotel/condo through a timeshare deal…also my wife and I shared the condo with her siblings – so it wasnt as expensive for us. We booked our vacation back in November so we planned it well in advance. Theres a Holiday Inn right next to the Marriott on the beach, which might give you a better deal. The good thing about Marriott was that it was like a condo – so, we had a kitchen and we could cook our own food instead of eating out every meal.

      But still, Aruba isnt a cheap vacation spot. Its one of the more expensive Caribbean islands, but its clean, safe, very friendly/helpful locals, ideal weather year-round.

      Best wishes
