Looking for an all inclusive honeymoon package in Aruba. Ideas??

Jump to last reply

My fiancee and are I getting married in mid May, '11 and are trying to decide on a great all inclusive package somewhere in the Caribbean. We've both gone to Jamaica and Barbados and loved them both. Our ideal islands seem to be Fiji or Tahita, but unfortunately are out of the budget. Budget is $3000 per person for 12 nights.

Although I've heard St. Barths, Turks and Caicos, Cayman Islands and Grenada are all beautiful, we've been primarily focusing on Aruba. However, suggestions are welcomed. We both enjoy the smaller and more romantic resorts (low rise resorts), but at this point we just want the best. This isn't to say that the right high rise wouldn't be bad if it knocks our socks off. We want the beatiful beachs and relaxation, but with available activities. Hey, it's our honeymoon!

We really want our honeymoon to be special and have gotten numerous suggestions, but still can't seem to decide. Here's what we've heard so far. The Bucuti was recommended, but I don't think that they offer an all-inclusive package. The Tamarijn and the Divi (sister resorts) were first recommended. We liked the ocean front rooms at the Tamarijn, but doesn't look as nice as the Divi in pictures. However, the Tamarijn came highly recommended. Looking online though, both got mixed reviews. Then it was the Marchebo Resort and Casino which appealed to us because upon checking in you're given this flag that you put into the sand on the beach when you want drinks brought to you (we both liked this idea and certainly want to be taken care of on our honeymoon). Then someone suggested the Renaissance which looks beautiful with it's swim up bar and private island. But then we've read that it's a bit older hotel and isn't as secluded as we would like. Bottom line is we're looking for a candle lit dinner on the beach as a married couple, great food (all inclusive style), choices in activities (snorkeling, sunset cruise, horseback riding, cave exploring in canoes...), tropical drinks, shopping and romance. Definately romance! We're looking for "The Experience"!

Where would you recommend? And which online service would you use to book the trip? I have found Cheap Caribbean is the best value so far, at least for all inclusive packages, but have looked on Honeymoon Inc. com, Vacations to Go and others.
