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.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also send us a PM on Facebook but pictures are best by email.
Today we share some wonderful message from Karen & Dan and Sarah & John: “We have been going to Aruba for 20 years, we love it so much we purchased a house across the street from the Marriott hotel. We visit 4-5 times a year and always wind up at the outdoor bar at the Marriott to see all of our friends, Especially Andrew, he has become a great friend, and we consider him our family! Always smiling and a great bartender! Hopefully we will return as soon as this Covid 19 thing ends! We really miss everyone!”
Sarah & John: “We have been coming to Aruba for 15 years and have stayed at The Barceló (formerly Occidental). Angela who works at the Pool Bar is our favorite! You become family when you stay at that resort. We have tried a couple other hotels over the years but always find ourselves back at Barceló. Angela has worked for the resort for over 25 years and always has a smile on her face and a big hug to give when we arrive and sadly when we leave. She even had us over to her home on one of our recent visits where we really got to know her and her beautiful family. We can’t wait to return to visit our home away from home and Angela!”
