Dear Members,
I begin this December’s update with my wish to you all:
I wish each of you and your families and everyone
a Merry Christmas this year ...
and a Healthy, Happy, Prosperous
New Year 2013 !!
To our Jewish families – Happy Hanukkah
Occupancy despite the Superstorm Sandy, has been continuing approximately 80-82% throughout the
November weeks. Aruba’s weather has been pleasant up until now with Hurricane Season officially over the
end of November. We can still expect some much needed rain throughout the next weeks, however you will
also notice the nice effect on the Island’s vegetation while traveling from here to there on our One Happy
To our arriving guests, should your plans include renting a vehicle during your vacation time, please always
lock your doors and close all windows securely, be sure to park your vehicle in a safe, well lighted, parking
area, and leave nothing of value in your car when unattended.
Driving on Aruba is always an experience. However there are currently some traffic challenges especially as
concerns the on-going Construction of the new multi-level traffic circle at the Airport. So when taking that
route, you should allow extra time and pay close attention to directional signs. The same advice when driving
in and around Oranjestad where there are many changes of direction and detours taking place in connection
with the TRAM rails and Reconstruction Project. Aruba’s first TRAM Car has been shipped and currently
making its way to Aruba. The arrival date is not definite, however it is expected before the end of December.
SECURITY – Pool & Beach Policy: No towels can be placed on pool or beach chairs/lounges before 6 AM.
Any towels or items placed before 6 AM will be removed by Security. At 6 AM ABC towels (green towels) can
be placed. At 8 AM CDM towels (blue and white towels) can be placed. CDM towels placed before 8 AM will
be removed. No hut can be left unattended for more than 2 hours. Any huts that are not used within a 2-
hour period the possessions of that hut will be gathered by Security. Returning occupants can retrieve their
items at the towel station or Security hut (depending on the time of day). There will be no towel sweep if
there are still empty huts available at 6:00 P.M.
HOUSEKEEPING: In order to limit beach towel damage which has increased considerably over the past
year, We have instituted a new policy. Guests are requested to check their beach towels as received at the
Beach Towel Station, and again, when returning, beach towels will be checked for damage. The Guest will
be charged for any damage to their beach towels.
Policy on issuing of Beach Towels to Non-In House Members: One of the benefits of our non-in house
ABC Members is to make use of the facilities outside of their owned interval week. The use of pool and
beach is the most used facility and beach towels are signed for but not always returned. This creates a
shortage of towels for the in house Members and Guests and therefore we are forced to implement a
procedure which will accommodate everyone without any inconvenience.
As of immediately, ABC Members who are going to make use of the pool and beach outside of their owned
interval week (non-in house Members) will have to pass at the Front Desk and show their membership card
together with a valid Picture Identification Card. After the Front Desk has validated your membership, you will
receive a day pass to sign and to obtain beach towels (one towel per member and/or co-owner) at the same
day. These must be returned at the Beach Towel Station on or before 6:00 PM. However, for any valid
reason you did not return the beach towels to the Towel Station by 6:00 PM, you must return the towels each
day to the Front Desk before leaving the ABC property. Non-compliance to this rule, ABC Members will be
held financially responsible for towels not returned or damaged. A $25.00-charge pert towel will be added to
your membership account.
Moreover, we want to reiterate that your Membership Card is non-transferable. Only ABC owners and coowners
have the right to receive beach towels outside their interval week (s).
Refrigerators – A reminder to arriving guests to check the Temperature setting of your refrigerator. The
Club is not responsible for items stored at improper setting.
Also, as a safety precaution, check the knobs on your stove/oven to ensure they are in the off position
when not in use.
RESALES: Still time to take advantage of our 35th Anniversary Year offer until December 31st, 2012 to
purchase Club owned “Superior low Season” units at a reduced price of $2,500.00 per unit/week.
Please contact our Resales Coordinator Lucille Voss at 297-582-3000 ext 685 or email for further details and/or information. You can also visit our Club’s website for a list of all units for sale.
RESERVATIONS - Reminder re Private Rentals: When placing a week/unit in Club’ Rental Program and
also placing an Ad on the Rentals/Exchanges Page of Club’s Website, Member may withdraw his week/unit
from the Rental Program, in writing, at any time, as long as it was not rented by the Club. Adherence to this
procedure is required to avoid double rental of a week/unit by the Club and by the Member.
I look forward to meeting you at the regular Tuesday Members Meeting where most recent info will be shared
and questions from the floor addressed.
Warmest regards,
Farida Mansur
General Manager
