Dear Members and Guests,

Welcome to the lazy days of summertime vacations. So far, here on Aruba, it’s been sunny and dry for several months, however windier than usual this period. Hurricane season began June 1st, and we here at our Resort and on the Island are in preparations as we are every year. God willing, Aruba, and other countries will be spared.

Aruba Beach Club has again earned the RCI Silver Crown Resort® designation for 2013! RCI presents this award to Aruba Beach Club in recognition of its outstanding resort facilities and services which include resort quality, service delivery, and overall vacation experience. Congratulations to the entire staff for their strong commitment to quality and service, sharing our ongoing commitment to customer satisfaction.

Selling season for the summer weeks has arrived. Resale has approximately 66 Superior weeks at Club’s Special Sales price of $2,500.00. These are Red time carrying high season trading rights throughout the world via the exchange companies RCI and Interval International. Tell your friends, or relatives that also may want to take advantage of this offer. Check the listings on the Resales Page and contact ABC’s new Sales & Marketing Representative, Raphael Nicolaas via email, or via phone (297)582-3000 ext.601 for further information and purchase. Or, while you are here, take a moment to meet Raphael. You’ll find his office under the Cayenna Terrace, between the Members Lounge and Activities Center.

Those of you who will be enjoying your vacation time with us here, please kindly take good notice of the following issues pertaining to your unit:

SECURITY AND SAFETY: We are again finding items stashed by guests in the ceilings of rooms which is creating possible HAZARD. DO NOT STORE PERSONAL ITEMS OF ANY KIND IN THE CEILING OF YOUR UNIT. Any items found will be confiscated and destroyed. Should you have any personal items that you need to store from one visit till your next, off premises storage company is available. Please ask at the Front Desk for details.

ROOM SAFES: Please be sure to lock your valuables in your room safe. If you should forget to lock your safe, Housekeeping will not provide service in your room. We would also like to remind all guests that between the hours of 9:00 PM and 8:00 AM, there is no assistance available to “unlock” your safe. Furthermore, we recommend you not to put any medicine in your room safe in case you may need it in an emergency.

BEACH AND CHICKEES: THANKS for “Sharing the Shade” – Ramon and his Security/Pool staff expresses their sincere appreciation to all our guests for your cooperation and understanding contributing to ABC’s One Happy Beach! In the event of a member/guest addressing security to remove towels before 6AM while there are still beach-huts available, towels will not be removed.
Otherwise, the same beach-hut rules still apply.

CLUB DUES: Statements will be mailed in July with due date October 31, 2012 for next Fiscal Year 2013/2014, covering weeks 44 through 52 of 2013 and weeks 1 through 43 of 2014:

$490.00 - SUPERIOR
$580.00 – DELUXE
$675.00 - ROYAL

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 e-mail, 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.

SPACEBANK DEPOSITS WITH EXCHANGE COMPANIES: 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 and recorded on your account by ABC. Check your Club Dues Statement “begins” date that indicates the wk/unit/yr billed.


5k Funstacle Master Fun Run Walk – This event will be on June 8th at the Fisherman’s Hut View map, starting 1 ‘o’ clock in the afternoon with the biggest obstacle of all times….THE SUN. Funstacle masters will jump start at 3 ‘o’ clock. This is a 5 K run/walk event with various challenging, yet fun obstacles and you will contribute to a good cause. The obstacles do not require physical and/ or mental preparations, anybody can participate. The main idea is to focus on the “teamwork”, “humor” and the greatest part, it has to be FUN. For more information please contact by email or visit the website

27th Aruba Hi-Winds July 2-9 – Aruba's trade winds provide the perfect conditions for the largest amateur windsurfing event in the Caribbean. Exciting windsurfing and kite boarding competitions in various categories including men, women, juniors, masters, free style and kite surfing including a long distance and King and Queen of the Huts. Competitions are held off the beaches at Fisherman's Huts at Hadicurari. Contact Aruba Tourism Authority at Tel. +297 582 3777 / Fax +297 583 7403 / or for additional information.

It is my pleasure updating you with some of the latest developments at the ABC and on the 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.

Warm regards,

Farida Mansur
General Manager
