There's no staff on the beach at all. Everyone is on their own to secure a hut for the day. We got up anywhere from 5:30 to 7:00 to put our towels (from the day before) on chairs or hung them from the hook and then went back to bed for a few hours. A strange procedure but it seemed to work OK and I'm not an early riser. Gonzales is now painting for a living. He had an offer at another hotel (Bucuti) but turned it down as it didn't pay enough. Carmen is the towel person at the Phoenix. She's hoping everyone will walk down and say "Hi". She misses all the old "Aruba Grand" faces.
