    IT'S BACK... get notified when Rates Drop!!   03/19/2018

    Our newest development, RateDrop.com will monitor hotel prices for your specific dates and notify you if the Rate Drops!   Monitor hotel prices from both PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE, as well as 'regular' retail hotel rates, based upon the specific criteria you choose.   While the benefits of tracking rates from Priceline and Hotwire are obvious, another use is to purchase a refundable hotel rate using RefundableRates.com and then also set an alert for that specific hotel using RateDrop... if the price drops, simply cancel and re-book at the new lower rate.   Uses your existing BetterBidding.com account so no additional sign-up is needed.   Get started tracking hotel rates now at RateDrop.com

For the Hotwire hotel I believe there are more amenities then what you have posted above as HOTWIRE has a new interface that does not show the complete set of amenities unless you search using the EASY VIEW TAB of our BiddingHelper.com tool. (always use this method for your searches/purchases to ensure you're seeing the complete amenity set and for an easy comparison of PRICELINE vs. HOTWIRE, as well as to use our new IS THIS A GOOD PRICE feature).

If you repeat your search using our BiddingHelper.com tool... use the HOTWIRE EASY VIEW tab and then click the GREEN BUTTON next to this listing, do you see more amenities (including any accessible amenities) then what you have listed above? Using this method, below is the full list of amenities i'm seeing for the 4 star hotel in this zone when searching for your dates:

 

4* HOTWIRE Palm Beach - Oranjestad, Aruba for $190.00
Free Parking
Free Internet
Resort
Beachfront
Casino
Smoke Free
Fitness
Pool
Restaurant
Business
Hi-Speed Internet
Golf
Tennis
Spa
Childrens Activities
==> best guess for this one would be the Holiday Inn Resort Aruba

NOTE: you could easily identify this one on your own by using the BiddingHelper.com EASY VIEW tab and then clicking on the GREEN 'What Hotel Is This?" button next to this offer :wink:

 

For the PRICELINE EXPRESS offer:

4* Palm Beach - Oranjestad, Aruba (<-- CLICK HERE and confirm your dates on the landing page) for $183/nite with:
Fitness Center
Business Center
Casino
Restaurant
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
Indoor or Outdoor Pool
==> from the Aruba Priceline Express Hotel List this matches previous reports for the Holiday Inn Resort Aruba-Beach Resort and Casino and would be my best guess here

I thought so for both, but hotwire's fees are over $500, bringing the total to nearly $2000, and Priceline's is $1600!

 

I didn't know how that link worked...trying again!  :)  Thanks!

It's a fairly new feature so i mention it as a lot of users still don't know about it yet.

It's not typical that the fees are that much higher, but why not just take the PRICELINE EXPRESS offer (which is cheaper in both rooms rate and taxes/fees) if you're interested in this property?

The link above (the star rating and zone name) are working fine for me... what is the error message you're getting?

I was getting that they were unable to confirm my reservation, something about availability, etc., but they still charged for the insurance fee.  I was FINALLY able to get it to work just fine this morning.  I officially got the Holiday Inn Resort Aruba, which was what I hoped for, based on location and resort amenities!!!  Thank you so much! And your coupon worked just fine also!  I'll call to get the first insurance fee credited. 

 

How do I post international express deal wins? 

 

Thanks again for giving me the confidence to pull the trigger!!!

Congratulations on your success!

Glad to see you received a very nice deal on the hotel that you were hoping for and that you're pleased with the outcome, we're happy to be able to help!

 

This thread is already in the correct section of the board (Priceline Hotels - Puerto Rico and other Caribbean Islands).  We will mark this thread as completed and reflect your win, but In the future if you would like there is a green button on the top right corner of the board 'ADD REPLY and REPORT WIN' which will give you a form to report the details of your purchase as well as add a reply with any additional information.  This button is now gone as it disappears once used, and we already clicked on it to change this thread from a 'request' to a 'win'.

Thank you for sharing your win and using the PRICELINE links on the board to begin your purchase.

Have a great trip and enjoy your time and the New Year's Eve holiday in the caribbean!
