Occupancy in July has been good and expected to continue right through August and into September, We have many local Aruba and Curacao members, Europeans and South Americans, Canadians and USA guests, all enjoying their family vacations on our “ONE HAPPY ISLAND” at their “HOME AWAY FROM HOME”.

First of all, I am very happy and proud to announce that Aruba Beach Club has received this year “THE CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE” from the world’s largest traveler’s website TRIPADVISOR, ranking ABC in the top 10% worldwide for traveler feedback. This recognition is awarded to the best in the hospitality industry and only to businesses with a constant positive feedback from travelers on TripAdvisor.
I would like to congratulate and also thank our Board of Directors, our Management and Staff, and especially our ABC Owners and Guests who by sharing their positive vacation experience at ABC on TripAdvisor, have made this important recognition possible.

RESALES: Our Sales & Marketing Representative, Raphael Nicholaas has left the Aruba Beach Club to pursue other career opportunity. We would like to wish him much success. We are in the process of interviewing and hiring a new Sales & Marketing Representative. In the meantime please contact Lucille Voss at There is still a selection of the Superior weeks remaining at Club’s Special Sales price of $2,500.00.

REMINDER TO UPDATE YOUR PERSONAL DATA: Enclosed with your Club Dues Statement, you received a yellow slip requesting you to verify your current coordinates with the Club. 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 e-mail, mailing address, contact or other related personal information and forget to inform the Resort. We would like EVERY MEMBER to please complete and mail the yellow slip with your payment. We always strive to improve communications with our members – Your cooperation is appreciated.

3. CHICKEES: Replacement and/or necessary repairs on several chickees, wearing away, or in need of repair due to the unusual gusts of winds that we are experiencing on the Island this year, are being performed through the month of August. We will continue to monitor the chickees closely.

4. RESTAURANT / BAR: Preparations are beginning for necessary renovations of the kitchen and make-over of the facilities for our new F&B provider, Ricardo Chirino, his sister Anky Paesch-Chirino and Anky's husband Harold Paesch who will be taking over the operation as of September lst under the name Ricardo’s Restaurant & Bar.

5. MINI-MART: Our new Mini-Mart is now fully stocked with grocery items as well as other articles for your convenience.
