We look forward to your visit!

Resort Update June 24, 2020
Dear Owners:

We hope that this e-mail finds you and your family safe and in good health.

Due to the COVID-19, Aruba was forced to shut its borders for the first time in history. In an effort to contain the spread of the virus, the Government of Aruba ordered a complete lockdown until the situation was under control. The island’s lockdown resulted in a substantial loss of revenue for the Cooperative Association La Cabana Beach and Racquet Club and many owners unable to enjoy their week(s) during the lockdown period.

Although this pandemic was an act of God, and as such, considered a “force majeure” with no obligation on the part of the Coop to replace the lost weeks, the Board assessed the situation and balanced the best interest of the Association and our affected owners, to agree on the following:

• Owners in good standing (who have paid their maintenance fee accordingly) whose weeks were between week 12, March 19th through week 27/28, July 9th 2020, can book their lost week(s) based on availability over a two (2) years period, starting July 10th, 2020 and ending July 10th, 2022 (being the last reservation accepted with check out date of July 17th, 2022).
• Compensated weeks cannot be deposited with Interval International.
• There is an administrative fee of $35 per week to book the compensated week. No additional Guest Authorization fee will be charged if the compensated week is being booked to be used by an Owner’s guest.
• This compensation is not valid for Owners who did not pay their maintenance fee on time.
• Owners whose week(s) start after the opening date of Aruba’s borders but cannot use the week(s), are recommended to deposit their week with Interval International.

We were lucky as we had already deposited our week that we have in May in December. We planned to travel to upstate NY to the Ithicia area so we could do some waterfall photography and visit the State parks but that was put on hold at the end of May. We had booked with Airbnb and they were very good about giving us a full credit to use by next December

Good for LaCabana! Seems reasonable.

Nice that they're working with the owners so they don't lose their weeks.
