Just returned after a nice long relaxing vacation. We split out time between Renaissance and Surf Club.
Some of the highlights of the trip were
1. WINE on DOWN THE ROAD tour with a Kukoo. It was a class act with a twist of fun. Did a private tour on our own with 14 other Ren timeshare owners. It wasn’t a drunk bash, it was 4 stops, wine paired with tapas. Stops included; White Modern, Screaming Eagle, Hostoria and Azia. 5:25-10 pm
Total blast
2. Dining- Highlights and not so Highlights
Daniels- great dining, mixed Grille with truffle mashed to die for
Gostoso- Hadnt been in 6 yrs, revisited and it blew us away. Great grouper dishes, best grouper entire vacation
Quinta- continues to deliver consistently good service, food and ambience. Outdoor dining area continues to grow, but did not change the high level of service

Worst pvisit was to AnnaMarias- 6 th visit and last. Arrived at 6:30, called cab at 7:30. Speed dining wasn’t what we had in mind. Thought we were personal friends of owner Christian, who knew we were coming after we had called 20 minutes before arrival. He never moved his tail out to say hi. We have sent numerous folks from our fb page to him, we recommend to everyone we know to visit them... food blah... not cooked, wanted more wine and water and never got it.., enough said, you get the point

Reviews of resorts:
Surf Club packed, beyond packed. Palapas sold out and had to get mgmt involved to get us one for 2 days. News to us that you can book them in advance in 900 row.
Mgmt is very responsive there, can’t complain at all as to the level of help!

Renaissance is our first Aruba love. It only gets better every visit,
Their improvements blow up away. Wind Creek has big plans for the place.

Airport departures were nothing but a sh** show. Hundreds were in line for hours. This is the time when GE kicked in and saved us well over an hour.
Ty Global Entry, for those nay sayers that $100 was money was well spent.

Feel free to message me with questions.
