In need of good agent to book 6 for aruba!!

I am organizing a trip for 6 adults (ages 24-38) air + hotel. Know of anyone that specializes in booking for aruba? Is there a villa of sorts to rent for a week that all 6 could comfortably stay in? Or am I holding my breath? Price per person budget up to $2000.
Thanks for any input!

We looked for Aruba specialists when we booked our honeymoon and from this board were referred to Travel Unlimited. Well, they were fantastic to work with. Really geared it towards want we wanted for our honeymoon. Contact Alan at 1-800-228-1502 or their website is http://www.travelunlimited.com

Last September, we booked our trip to Aruba with MCM Tours. They specialize in Aruba only and had the best package prices. We left from JFK (New York) and stayed at the Wyndham for 7 nights. It cost us $1,118 per person and it included r/t transfers, daily breakfast buffet, all taxes and a $100 food & beverage credit. Their price beat Liberty Travel by several hundred dollars per person. Their telephone number is 1-800-64-ARUBA and their website is www.mcmtours.com. Good luck.

Kate, what time of year? In the fall, that objective of less then $2000 per person is easy but Christmas through April, that may be difficult.

We are looking to go Jan-late april.
I called american express , and they can give me a deal of $1400pp April 23-30 flying at great times on delta and staying at the Wyndham. not AI.
I am think that is an ok deal, but now I told the poeple that I am going with, and they think they can find something cheaper and in feb-mar. Are they nuts?

ok...now I took Marilyns advice and spoke with someone from mcmtours.com

They quoted a deluxe room at the wyndham, for $1599 in Jan. Does anyone know who else deals with aruba that could give me the same/semi-deal in late feb?

The prices I got from MCM's website are as follows:

Wyndham Resort (7 nights)
Deluxe Room
Daily Breakfast Buffet
$100 food & beverage credit (per room)
Delta (from JFK)

09/09/-12/14/02: $1,119
01/06-01/31/03: $1,539
03/01-04/20/03: $1,539

The Holiday Inn has cheaper prices, but the Wyndham is a much nicer hotel with a great staff and excellent restaurants.

Contact Alan at Travel Unlimited www.travelimited.com or 1-800-228-1502. We got a very good rate from them as they specialize in Aruba plus they are an AMEX affiliated agency. High pricing is due to your travel dates being high season. Prices drop off end of April.
