Dear Members,
Occupancy during month of July as expected in the 90% range, of which approximately 50% are local
members and guests adding their flavor to the Aruba experience, August will be likewise.
Weather is perfect and warming just a degree or two, so far with minimum precipitation, while we approach
the latter, more active part of our Hurricane season. God willing, Aruba, the Caribbean and our neighboring
countries will be spared.
Employee of the Month elections were held recently at a ceremony attended by all employees and I am proud
to announce the following Employees of the Month, for the first six months of the year, January thru June
2012 in recognition of their exemplary dedication to the Aruba Beach Club, its members and guests:
EOM January 2012 – JACQUELINE KELLY – Head Cashier / I.T. Coordinator
EOM February 2012 – MABEL MEJIA – Room Keeper
EOM March 2012 – MARTHA BOEKHOUDT – Room Keeper
EOM April 2012 – JOEL ALTUVE – General Mechanic
EOM May 2012 – CARMEN BRIEVA – Room Keeper
EOM June 2012 – OFELIA VALLES – Room Keeper
CLUB DUES: Statements were mailed early July with due date October 31, 2012 for next Fiscal Year
2012/2013, covering weeks 44 through 52 of 2012 and weeks 1 through 43 of 2013 :
Superior - $461.00
Deluxe - $547.00
Royal - $638.00
WEEK 44 OWNERS – As concerns week #44 owners only, You may, or may not have noticed an incorrect
“begin” date mentioned on your Statement for the week 44 that you own. Please take good note, the correct
“begin” date for week 44 of 2012 is November 3, 2012, Saturday. Our apologies for any confusion or
REMINDER TO UPDATE YOUR PERSONAL DATA: The Club at all times needs to have an updated record
of all our existing Members and we find that some of our members change their mailing address, contact or
other related personal information and forget to inform the Resort. If this is your case, please contact Cathy
Brete via email in order to update your records with the Club.
MAINTENANCE DEPARTMENT: The 2nd Floor East & West Wing balcony retiling project is at its end with
only two units remaining at the East Wing and scheduled for completion this first week of August.
Please take good note of The Board of Director’s New Policy regarding extensive room maintenance and
repairs: “Any room that is still vacant on a Tuesday morning of each week, whether it is in the Rental
Program or not, will be subject to and made available for any major room maintenance and repair work”. In
case of a special project such as the balconies repairs etc., the unoccupied and unrented units will be made
available as of Saturdays. The Board of Directors realizes that from time to time this Policy may cause some
confusion and perhaps some extra work for the Front Desk and Club’s Rental office, should the Club need to
relocate someone. However, it is the only reasonable solution in order for Maintenance to get the necessary
repairs and maintenance done in our rooms. In case of emergency repairs members/guests may be
requested by Management to room change at any time throughout your stay. Thank you for your kind
cooperation and understanding.
beginning with week # 35 of 2012, an Administrative Processing Fee of US$15.00 per unit/week or fraction
thereof, is charged to the owner on all “Guest of Member Authorizations” submitted to your Resort, required
for anyone using a unit/week who is not the owner of record. This fee is payable immediately at time of
remittance of the related Authorization request/form by the owner. Failure to comply with the aforesaid will
result in an additional penalty charge to the owner of US$10.00. The new/revised “Guest of Member
Authorization” form is available on Club’s website, or upon request from the Club.
Every Authorization form must be completed by Member/Owner, and received by the Club with check of
$15.00 administration fee prior to the start date of the week. Member is also required to give his/her guest a
copy of the Guest of Member Authorization form so that guest may present with copy to the Front Desk upon
arrival/check-in at the Aruba Beach Club. Your cooperation and adherence to the above required procedure
will be appreciated.
SPACEBANK DEPOSITS WITH EXCHANGE COMPANIES: Please be reminded, Members are required to
PRE-PAY the Club Dues/Maintenance Fees on the corresponding wk/unit/year prior to contacting the
Exchange Company with a spacebank deposit. Your deposit will be returned if prepayment has not been
received/recorded on your account by ABC. Check your Club Dues Statement “begins” date that indicates
the wk/unit/yr billed.
ACTIVITIES: In addition to our own regular weekly activities, there are some Island Activities to which we
also extend an invitation to our guests, such as the Bon Bini Festival (Tuesday in Oranjestad at the Willem III
Tower), and the CARUBBIAN Festival (Thursdays in San Nicolas by the main bus station). Check with our
Activities Coordinator, Susan for times and further information.
THE ARUBA 2012 REMBRANDT REGATTA - August 10, 11 and 12 - 2012
Last year a very successful third Aruba Rembrandt Regatta was held, three days of action and competition
for yachts, beachcats, sunfishes, optimists, windsurfers and kite surfers; three evenings of music and parties
for all participants and spectators. The organization is in full preparation for this spectacular event to make
this annual regatta even bigger and better than last year’s regatta. All events, including the opening and
closing ceremonies, take place at Eagle Beach.
Again, a pleasure updating you with some of the latest developments at the ABC and on our Island. I look
forward to meeting you at the regular Tuesday Manager’s Meeting where most recent info will be shared and
questions from the floor addressed.
Warmest regards,
Farida Mansur
General Manager
