We are far away but still connected through Aruba Today! We know many of you as our loyal readers and friends and we know you just love Aruba’s hospitality. The most striking is that all of you mention the great service and the bond with the waiter, the receptionist or other staff in the hotel and restaurants on Aruba. We have asked you to send us a picture of that favorite waiter or housekeeper or other hotel staff together with a personal message to them to publish this in our newspaper. We will also do our utmost to find this person and make sure she or he will get this message. Many of them may have lost their job or do not know when they will restart their work. They must miss you and the daily interaction that is why we would like to reach out and make a connection.
Send your text and picture to: email@example.com. You may also send us a PM on Facebook but pictures are best by email.
Have a look at the wonderful messages we have received so far. Thank you for sharing!
“I’m responding to your post looking for photos of local friends we tourists (like to think of ourselves as once a year “family”) are missing during this time of “isolation”. My husband and I have found ourselves on your beautiful island year after year in November. Our first stay, over 20 years ago, was at the Aruba Grand. It was during our second trip that we discovered the Radisson; we never looked back. Over the years everyone at this, the best home away from home on the island, have made us feel like one of the family.
While everyone there have been there for years and we love them all, we have four pictures to share. They are the reason we keep returning year after year. Chuck and I wish everyone on Aruba happiness and good health. Our trip for November 2020 has been booked so see everyone soon!
Our four special Aruba Hilton (previously the Radisson) are:
- Winnie- she makes the best Brandy Alexanders and Grasshoppers!
- Germaine Wever- always around adding the special touch to our stay (here she is receiving a gift from me as she hosted our 10 or 15 year tourist award).
- Victor- he is the bird whisperer; no day is complete without seeing him and his birds.
- Auldric- he is usually the first face we see when we arrive at the resort and the last one we see when leaving. He is always makes sure our stay is perfect.”
