Now back to my question.

Anyone have any problems bringing food in Aruba?
What did you end up doing about food?

We took frozen Pomegranate, we put it in our suitcases and were not bothered.

I was told as long as you don't throw it in their face that you are bringing food it should not be a problem.

Any updated opinions on Hyatt vs. Radisson?  Upthread seems to be from way back and things change.

I just stayed at the Hyatt and it is nothing special.

From what I heard around on the street the Hyatt is the nicest hotel on the island so probably the best way to go.

No way you can pick the Hyatt over Raddison, especially for bookings made before June 1.

Any decent hotel options available for point redemptions?  No SPG hotels, and I've never used points on any others.  I have UR and access to MR.

I'm not traveling with the wife, so I don't really care. Looking for a cheap redemption.

It is now a Hilton.  I was there this summer and stayed at the Ritz Carlton.
Also Aruba is a very small island with not much to do. Great for R&R which was our purpose. Lots of water sports and beautiful beaches. Nightlife is basically casinos.

Interesting.  Didn't know. I have 6 nights booked here in 2016. Wonder how they're handling CC reservations.
