    Cheap price for a weekend night

    There is a discotheque just under the hotel, there is no way one could ever sleep on a Friday or Saturday night especially if you are sleeping in one of the rooms just above the discotheque.

    Not a thing!! It was horrible!! Absolutely the worst stay I have ever experienced!! Filthy rooms tile floors, had to stay up till 5 in the morning watching my vehicle in fear of it getting stolen or tires and rims stolen!! While in my vehicle during this time a car parked next to me and slammed its door into my truck and a young drunk man got out an urinate on the front of my truck with me inside of it!! It was an absolute nightmare!!! After checkout we arrived back home and noticed also that aruba had overcharged us another night and are presently waiting to see it refunded to our credit card account.we called the front desk at aruba and they claimed it will be returned to our account in less then 5 days. We will see I guess? I reccomend this place be bulldosed to the ground!!!! Absolutely horrible!!!!!!
