A March 2005 trip to Amsterdam by scuber

Quote: The Holland experience.

Spirit in the Sky


I stayed at the Allegro Resort and did all inclusive, and the hotel could not have done more for me. They had all kinds of poolside activities to win trips back to Aruba and other prizes, as well as night life, and excellent front desk reception with helping planning day trips.

Quick Tips:

Instead of taking tours, I would suggest renting a car and driving to all the highlights yourself—not only is it cheaper, but the island is so easy to get around you will have no problem finding the hot spots!

Best Way To Get Around:

Rent a car or taxi.

This hotel was in the heart of everything-one block from the flower district and about two blocks from the red light district. Also, very close to the Heineken Factory and museums.

I went to Holland with three friends and it was great! We took a bus tour of the countryside, and also experienced the red light district and it was all fantastic. The only thing I would recommend is that you really don't need more than four days—you can experience everything in that time frame!
