Aruba - where to stay for a beach vaca 11/28-12/6 2014

Jump to last reply

Hi all! My husband and I are excited to go to Aruba for the first time. We're really going to enjoy the beach, lots of swimming, do some snorkeling, maybe a jeep tour to see all the beautiful secluded things you don't see in the resort and to make use of my new camera (I love taking pictures) or take a tour with the Kunocko Bus, maybe take a walk or run, and just soak in the sun. We're not huge drinkers but would love a pina colada or 2 in the evenings. We weren't sure if we should get an all-inclusive. We don't really like the idea of spending our vacation to drive around finding restaurants, but would love some good ones near by that have healthy options (and some not-so-healthy is fine too as we do love food!). We don't plan on shopping. We're trying to figure out if its worth it to get an all-inclusive? We like to keep it healthy, and with that being said, having a great gym in the hotel is pretty important to us. I have read that the Radisson has great reviews and is right on the beach. I have read that the Marriot has alot of tourists and kids that time of year, so that's slightly been a concern. I've read that Mr Frogs and other restaurants are great places to check out, and was wondering if its better to just eat at restaurants? Also, I really would love not to spend more than $4k, but am willing to stretch it a little. I'm also willing to go later in December if that is a better time, but I've looked up prices for around Christmas and they were outrageous. The only reason I chose Aruba is because my husband refuses to travel more than 4.5 hours away from Boston and we'd love to go somewhere where the ocean is warm! (or on the warmer side) I'm willing to try another location. We've already been to the DR for our honeymoon in September, so that's out!
Thanks in advance, and sorry for being so picky ;)
