Port : Aruba
I have lost most of the photos that I took in Aruba, (sad face) but I will do the best that I can with what is left...
For our Aruba stop, we purchased a day pass to the Occidental Grand Aruba Resort. It is a five star all-inclusive resort.
A tropical paradise is the only way to describe the resort.
At the center of the resort is a large lagoon style pool with a swim-up bar. Two hot tubs are located on an island in the pool.
The swim-up to bar makes amazing banana and mango coladas! And they are included in the day pass!
The girls had fun playing with the large chess set.
The resort has two tennis courts.
Kayaks are included in the all day pass.
Lizards were everywhere around the pool.
White sand, palm trees, and turquoise water.....paradise!
A beach walk stretches along the beach with little shops, places to eat, and other resorts along the way.
This cute little store was the perfect place to get some ice cream.
The Desire is one of the 6 restaurants located at the Occidental.
The front lobby makes for a very elegant entrance.
We enjoyed our day at the resort. We lounged by the pool, snorkeled, kayaked, and played tennis, and chess.
I wish that you could have seen my best pictures, but you can tell that it was a beautiful place anyway!
