We stayed @ the Radisson Resort for our anniversary. The weather was beautiful, some overcast clouds, temp of 90 degress with a constant breeze. Water temp we were told was 82 degrees. Was a refreshing cool which quickly warmed up in spots. It was our first stay @ the Radisson, our second trip to Aruba and hopefully not our last! To begin, the moment we walked into the lobby there is this refreshing constant breeze that invites you to paradise!! All the bellhops came to welcome and direct us to registration, where a nearby table of refreshing unsweetened tea is available for guests. The check-in process was smooth and efficient. Any issues where directed to the hotel manager on duty and resolved then & there. We checked in and were in our room with in 20 minutes. After settling in from our flight we went right to the beach, on our way down we stopped to inquire about a palapa & the resorts policy. Luckily we were able to reserve a complimentary palapa (since it was after the 4 o'clock sign up) for the next day. As we were only there for a short stay & we decided to pay for the rest of our stay rather than spend time in the line up. (The reservations begin @ 4pm, guests choose to start a line @ 3pm - and the line is long) who wants to spend vacation time in a line? Anywhooo- Had breakfast & lunch @ Gilligans, was very good and entertaining as the lizards and iguanas were passing thru under the tables-hehe. Double check your bills as there were double charges for items we didn't order 2 of. There is ALWAYS a 15% service fee added to each bill on the island for dining. The bill states the service fee is not gratuity and leaves a space for you to included an additional gratuity to that total. Make your own discretion whether to throw in a few more bucks. We went to Happy hour (from 4-6pm drinks are 2 for the price of 1, both drinks must be the same) There were 3 weddings during our stay. Dinner is available on the beach via torchlight @ your request via concierge, $65 per person for a surf & turf dinner. Very romantic & reasonably priced compared to the other resorts offering the same. We did encounter an unpleasant time one day, all day while a group of cruisers decided it was alright for them to take the resort chairs and towels and sit at the base of our palapa (remember we paid $40 per day). They were loud and inconsiderate to the resort guests. Luckily the chair boys came over & spoke to them and removed the chairs and towels from them. They still remained loud and sat right in front of our lounge chairs as if we were together. This is our only complaint. On our anniversary we arrived to our room to find a bottle of champagne on ice with a lovely note! Was a thoughtful, lovely gesture! The tropical birds are a joy to see walking along the path. The pools are delightful! Louis @ the concierge is so helpful & will do her best to get a reservation for dining during your stay!Frank the manager is professional & attentive.The entire staff is friendly, happy & very accommodating. We met many nice guests that have been coming to Aruba for 20+ years. As we are young Im sure we will also rack us many visits to this wonderful island in our lifetime!
