Don't know about the hotel, but the beach is HUGE and AMAZING! If you can, stay at the Marriott and go to that particular beach during the day!

Karen, I haven't been myself. However, after many hours of on-line research we had narrowed our choice down to Bucuti on Aruba and Bougainvillea on Barbados. Settled on Barbados as getting there is easier, but still intend to go to Bucuti next year. You might want to check out www.caribbeanopinion.com for an excellent review of this hotel. There are also trip reports at www.aruba-bb.com. I didn't come across one bad word about Bucuti while doing my research (or Bougainvillea, for that matter). Have fun.

Linda, stayed at The Bougainvillea this past January and loved it. The property is beautiful. Make sure to take a snorkeling cruise on the Tiani. It was unbelievable swimming with the sea turtles. If you like more info, feel free to email me.

Karen,
We were in Aruba just this past July and enjoyed our week there very
much. We stayed at the Manchebo
Beach resort which is next door to
the Bucuti. I had a chance to get a good look at this resort when we
went over to their restaurant, the
Pirate's Nest for lunch. It is a lovely
resort done in a Mediterranean style
and sits on a gorgeous, huge, white,
sandy beach! The guests there
seem to be well pampered--- the
hotel staff gives each guest a red
flag to use on the beach--- whenever
you are thirsty or hungry, just stick
the flag in the sand and a waiter
will come to take your order! No need to even move! The Pirate's
Nest restaurant is designed to look
like a beached galleon ship--- serves
breakfast, lunch and dinner ala carte
and no buffets except for theme
nights. The food is good--- I had
coconut shrimp and hubby had
garlic shrimp for lunch---very good.
At night, the restaurant looks very
romantic when it is lit up for the
evening--- you can dine inside or
outside on the deck. For more
information, go to their website-----
www.bucuti.com
This resort looks like a really nice
place to stay and the guests seem
to be pleased and happy to be
there! You can find a recent trip
report on the Bucuti at this website:
www.visitaruba.com and click on
"Trip Reports". It's organized by
hotel so just click on the hotels you
are interested in. My trip report on
the Manchebo resort is also there
too.
Ayo, Janice
