Holiday Inn, Aruba, iPhone video

Might as well take a look at the Holiday Inn on Palm Beach, Aruba, DWI. The lobby was recently renovated as well as some other improvements. Here’s a quick video taken with my iPhone.

I’ll keep these quick vids coming. A few “local” things on the way. Stay tuned.

Marriott Hotel, Aruba, iPhone video

As long as we’re looking at hotels in Aruba, let’s check out the Marriott in another iPhone 6 video. I used the native iMovie app to edit this one. Not a major editing job, of course, but one that was quick and easy and allowed me to upload the video straight to my iCloud sharing site. So, here’s a peek at the Marriott on Palm Beach, Aruba, DWI.

My expectations for these videos are not very high. My goal is to just capture a glimpse of whatever the subject is, edit it to a coherent piece, and then share it here and on my Facebook page. However, the capabilities of the iPhone video should not be underestimated. Take your time, think of creative angle, use the light as much as you can, and you’ll be impressed with what you can do without lugging heavy gear around. Enjoy the journey.

Hyatt Hotel, Aruba, iPhone video

Moving along in the series of iPhone 6 videos, here’s a quick look at the Hyatt Hotel in Aruba. This is an excellent place to enjoy your visit to Aruba, by the way.

There’s a nice stretch of beach here as well. I’ll cover that in a different video. In the mean time, consider they Hyatt does an awesome Sunday Brunch, one I have enjoyed many times. Check it out next time you’re in Aruba. Bon dia.

Work continues…

…on the Ritz-Carlton in Aruba. As you see here, the main structure is mostly complete.

The building is much larger than I thought it would be from the conceptual drawings that were in the local newspaper. It takes up a chunk of the beach and is immediately adjacent to a very popular wind/kite surf area. The good/bad news is, there’s no more beach to build more hotels in this area.
