Thoughts on Aruba for a long weekend? How does it compare to other islands in terms of sand quality, swimming in the ocean, hospitality, etc.? Marriott vs Ritz Carlton?

My fiancé owns several weeks of time shares. He will spend 6 weeks from mid January to the end of February. He also rents the other weeks.

Great weather year around, mid 80s with a breeze. The breeze sometimes causes blowing sand, but if you are on the high rise side, the buildings protect it not more. They don’t get hurricanes. Restaurants are amazing but not cheap. Lots of sun, rarely gets rain or if it does blows over fast.

People are amazing. Super nice, great taxi services.

Aruba. I’ve never been but I’ve met 10 people that go back there regularly based on great experiences. My brother liked Ritz in Aruba for his honeymoon

I’m traveling again for work and while it took me a while to get back into it, I’m almost as efficient as I was pre-Covid. My issue is that when I get home, I am exhausted. It feels like it takes me a day to recover from any travel that is more than an overnight trip. I know travel disrupts sleep and I eat heavier food when I’m on the road, so I’m watching that, but any other tips to not come home feeling like a shell? Or how to bounce back faster?
