Having paid a lot more than other holiday makers who booked 3 months before their holiday this did dishearten us. Our first impression of the hotel WOW but when they put us in C block having seen the reviews we were thinking OMG we have paid a lot more and we have ended up in C block. Within 5 minutes being in the room we found a dirty sock under the bed cover (sheets were clean) and the bath had a lot of grit and black rubber marks in it, fridge door full of ice and would not shut. Once reported this was soon rectified. Works were being carried out in a hotel next door this did not affect us too much however when sitting out having breakfast in the main restaurant the rubble shoots where alongside and did cause dust sometimes as there was no screen erected between both hotels.
The food in the main on restaurant and themed restaurants was fantastic clean towels everyday and elsewhere was very clean. We attended a wedding whilst there it was absolutely fabulous could not fault this. Beach and holiday was paradise and we would certainly go back to Aruba however, after paying a lot more and even questioned the price before we left Thomson did not offer to upgrade us in anyway that was disappointing. Another couple in our party did move from Block C a day later to B block.
