If you haven't been to the Marriott hotel, the Ocean Club or Surf Club, then you have missed out on a wonderful and beautiful beach resort on my favortie Carribean Island. We have owned at the Ocean Club before it was even constructed and have been there every year since the early 90's......first at hotel and then at the Ocean Club. We love it!
We love Aruba, the Ocean Club, Surf Club and The Casino, however, these facilities are far too small to accommodate peak use. We were at the Ocean Club week of April 7th, 2008. The pools for the entire complexes are over crowded, the beach is not in good condition, however the island is still the happy island dispite more hotels and vacationers. Aruba is experiening high inflation and government workers were on strike. As an owner of the Surf Club I hope that Marriott adds additional facilities such as pools and beach clean-up crews to preclude many many users from going to Baby beach.
