We're Back

After a week in Aruba, I think I can best summarize my feelings by paraphrasing a cruise line's commercial: "I think of this as a temporary exile."

I'll post more about our stay at the Wyndham Aruba Resort, Spa and Casino later, but I'll summarize that by calling it "Adventures in Housekeeping." Note to the Wyndham: teach your staff the names of the various towels and the exact number that should go in each room every day. Don't get me wrong, we did enjoy the dozen or so washcloths we ended up with by week's end, but multiple washcloths don't readily equate to a handtowel.

Oh... and putting a honeymoon couple in a room with two beds was NOT amusing. Not even slightly. Thanks to them for moving us to the king room we had initially requested based solely on a phone call.

We'll definitely go back to Aruba again, but next time we'll probably try one of the Marriott properties.
