Default Wont be long now Sept 26th

Our beautiful 10 days at the Phoenix. Wonder how many of you folks are the ones we hang out with in the water,talking about life,restaurants,and casinos. It feels good being with friends.

Dooedd..nice to "see" you here. Hope you come around more often. We are a very nice group.

I don't stay at the Phoenix.....so I doubt we have talked in the water. But if you would like to talk to another Aruba lover that just loves to meet other Aruba lovers....I am available. Also a PA person. We'll be there earlier than you...and we are at the OC....but if you walk up the beach and see the woman with the Black Cherry hair...you found me. LOL

Once again....glad you came for a visit.

We haven't "talked," since I'm a winter timeshare person, but we're geographically close if that counts for anything! I'm originally from Scranton so spent lots of time in your area!

Oh, and we're REALLY big into countdowns...yours, mine, anybody's!

Dooedd - wow Sept 26th will be here before you know it. I too am a winter timeshare person so we probably haven't "talked" either. Happy to talk to you here any time. I'd kill for your countdown....

yea last year we couldnt use our room on the 7th floor of old tower,so they put us into the new section. Very nice but I love our original......however you will find me in the new pools. Come say Hi.Usually wearing a Mets or Jets shirt.Gray hair,pot belly,cant stop smiling when in Aruba. When on beach as you face the Ocean usually get a chichi or palapa in front of the shower on the left side.Almost always wear shirt in the water(Irish skin).I say Hi to everybody,its my nature.

Dooedd ... thanks for the update. Coincidentally am looking at a one bedroom #702 (i assume is on the seventh floor) in the old tower. Hopefully it will be ready for the week I am trying to acquire. Can you update the condition again when you get there, it probably will be a done deal by then but I am very curious. Thanks again.

I thought all of the tower rooms were done by now. Are they still working on any of them???

All I know about the suites in the old towers are the forums where guests are reporting about the lack of upgrades in the old rooms since the new towers were put in. I have not read any contradictory replies, thus my concern.

They've been working on the Tower for the past few years. They've re-done the bathrooms, changed the patio doors & replaced the furniture & bedding. However, the work has been done a bit at a time so the units just don't have the wow factor that you would get if everything was done at once. And, the kitchens haven't been touched yet. They definitely need some sprucing up. It's time for new appliances, counter tops & cabinets.

That said, I'll take my 7th floor tower unit over the new ones any day. I don't cook while I'm on vacation so the outdated kitchen isn't an issue for me & in a few years, the new places will get that worn look too.

Unfortunately, many people don't take care of the units while they're in them. You'd think for what they cost, people would treat them better.............
