All Inclusive Aruba ??

We are thinking of going on our honeymoon in Aruba and staying at an all inclusive resort. However, recently I've heard some negative things about all inclusive there such as food, lodging, etc.. Has anyone any experiences to share (positive or negative)?

Aruba is one of the islands that all-inclusive is not necessry do to the fact there are so many wonderful restaurants to choose from. All-inclusive is good if you are big drinkers or are on a fixed budget. The nicest all-inclusive would be the Allegro. Here's a website with great rates:

Hi Brent: I agree with Sara that an all-inclusive is not neccessary in Aruba. All inclusives are great for islands that you must stay on the resort for reasons of safety or were there are not a variety of good restaurants in all price ranges. In Aruba you can take bus transportation or taxis anywhere and feel safe. Also the island is small enough that you can explore on your own and venture to different beach areas to do watersports ect, casinos. I think you would tie yourself uneccessarily to your resort and miss out the best reason to go to this beautiful island. The reason people love Aruba is the friendly , safe atmosphere and all those beautiful beaches!!! Have a great holiday.Karen

Hi Brent...I am a travel agent (not trying to get business here) just want you to benefit from the recent update I received from the travel industry news...the Mariott in Aruba is not going all-inclusive! Up to now, the best place was the Allegro...really nice property, but not upscale rooms and accommodations! For a honeymoon, I would recommend a place that is a little nicer than Allegro...and the Mariott in Aruba is a beautiful property with very nice rooms! I do agree, however, that if you are visiting Aruba...you may want to reconsider perhaps taking just a breakfast plan at the hotel, because the restaurants are wonderful in Aruba and it is very safe to get around! However, if you are on a fixed budget and dont want to worry about overspending, then an all-inclusive is the way to go! Especially if you want all those fancy tropical drinks! If you're not a gambler and are not fixed on Aruba, you may want to explore going to Grand Lido Braco or Negril or a Sandals property in St. Lucia! Well, the best of luck to you and if you want to pick my brain...please feel free to drop me an email!! No charge or obligation at all, just want to to help!

Just came back from Aruba two days a go.
We went NON INCLUSIVE and it is the best option over there, trust me.!!! Many good resturants out there that you can explore and sample.
