Don't anyone else make the same mistake!
Although the book is up to date and well documented, it is mainly aimed at the island of Aruba.
The research is well done but gives the impression to be mainly aimed at the American market.
Being Dutch, I know the other islands are well worth a visit as well.
I believe I am right in saying that Aruba is the main island of the three and gets the most visitors. Therefore, it is right that the other islands being less visited (and I presume have less to see) get less coverage.
Frommers guides do have a bias towards the American traveler in some words and terminology used, as well as giving more information for that market. Frommers are published in the USA. Even so, with a little "translation" they work fine for the English speaking UK visitor! I always buy Frommers guides if I can - they are the best.
Don't be put off by other reviewers if your prime visit is to Aruba - the coverage is good and well written.
To break up the information, and make it easier to digest, a few photographs, maps or diagrams would be very helpful.
Good value, but a few of the above mentioned modifications would make it even better.
