Hotel Pools close early.

We returned this weekend from a great week in Aruba, but my kids were disappointed that all the pools closed at 7pm. The accepted answer from all Arubians asked was so that "chemicals could be applied and have time to work" which we all know is ridiculous. Having been to other destinations such as Disney and been able to swim until midnight I could only wonder if some alcohol induced incidents has the resorts close early. Does anyone have an answer?

Probably just depends on the resort. We stay at Amsterdam Manor and they never "close" their pool. We've been swimming as late as 11pm.

It definitely depends on the resort. I think some probably don't want the responsibility of anything potentially bad happening later at night - especially with alcohol involved.

Not every night, but you will see people in the Divi Phoenix pool at night.

we used to enjoy a late night swim at the divi links. now the pool closes at 7:00 but the hot tub remains open until 10:00. we were told that due to late night pool parties and complaints from the timeshare owners around the pool, they close early. bummer!
