I want to start off by saying I had a great time in Aruba and at the Westin. We arrived two hours before check in but because the people staying in our suite had paid for late check out and because our son was asleep- they checked us into another room and sent us a room service lunch. I thought it was an excellent way to handle a tired family (we flew from California). Once we were in our real room we were super happy. Had a great suite with two balconies- fantastic view, the pool and beaches are pristine. Westin was at best excellent and at worse polite- so no worries there.
The criticisms I have are about details- the lamp shades had stains, the door had chipped paint (beige over orange so quite noticeable), the huge bathtub needed to be refinished (lots of chips), one of the elevators was out the entire week- nothing that got in the way of my enjoyment, but def something that a hotel as well known as the Westin should take care of.
The casino was fun- mostly played craps- the dealers didn't call out the numbers, so sometimes it was annoying not to know what was rolled and were somewhat surly- one of them called my husband a bad word in Spanish (we speak the language so we called her on it). Didn't stop us from playing though- that's one of the reasons why we wanted Aruba- beaches and gambling.
After the fourth day we finally left the Westin- we went to the Hyatt and to the Marriott Stellaris- talk about big difference! They looked top notch, poshy, busy, lively, WAY different- did appreciate the smaller feel at the Westin after the mall feel of the Stellaris (no craps at Stellaris, but yes at the Hyatt) so the comparison was both positive and negative. Loved the Hyatt casino.
would I stay there again? yes.
