Are you staying at the ocean club or surf club?
I am a true believer in timeshare, and I actually bought one for my hubby as a wedding gift (In Virginia).
Most of the timeshares in the Carribean are located on site at a resort, so basically it will be like staying at the Marriott, but you get more spacious and nicer accommodations.
Here’s the writeup and a review from redweek.com for the Ocean Club:
"Marriott’s Aruba Ocean Club features one-and-two-bedroom oceanfront or oceanview villas, all with a Caribbean flair. Amenities include a private balcony, whirlpool bath, and complete kitchens. Room service is available, and maid service is upon request. Also available on-site are a children’s pool, BBQ area, multiple restaurant choices, a spa, a fitness center with 24-hour card access, tennis courts, and a variety of planned activities for children and adults."
"We sent our daughter and new son-in-law here for their honeymoon in August of this year. They had nothing but great things to say about the facilities, and the usual excellant service from the Marriott staff. As a matter of fact – my daughter is pretty picky and she had absolutely nothing bad to say about the entire experience! She has convinced us to exchange our week another year for ourselves"
and the Surf Club:
"Marriott’s Aruba Surf Club sits beachfront on the Caribbean with a 10,700 square foot casino, an outdoor swimming pool, and health club. The resort features spacious villas designed to provide high-quality accommodations within a relaxing, escape resort-atmosphere. Each villa has spacious living and dining areas, full kitchens, multiple TV sets, VCR, and daily maid service (upon request). Guests of Marriott’s Aruba Surf Club have access to services at the Mandara Spa in neighboring Marriott’s Aruba Ocean Club’s lobby."
"The best Place to be in! Seeing is believing! The place is so relaxing and fun that you just can’t get enough of it all in one week, that’s why I’m buying another week so I can pretend I live in Aruba……"
Sorry for the long post, but Hope This Helps
