We recommend Aruba Honeymoon packages for couples seeking almost guaranteed sunshine, casinos and a European flavor. Our top 2 resort recommendations for a honeymoon in Aruba are all-inclusive. The cost of meals and drinks in Aruba, like most resort destinations, is on the high side. So, even if you want to splurge on a couple nights out, you can still save by doing an all inclusive resort stay in Aruba. You also can have fun at the resort with your wallet in the safe and not worry about running up a big credit card bill to come home to. We try to make your vacation as romantic and stress free as we can. That is why we specialize in all inclusive honeymoons.
We highly recommend the Occidental Grand Aruba and the Riu Palace Aruba. Both are located on the famed Palm Beach. Neither are considered luxury, but both are nice solid 4 star superior all inclusive resorts. The Ritz Carlton is the only luxury resort in Aruba and is not all inclusive. Both resorts are all inclusive all the time for everyone. We recommend totally all inclusive resorts over a resort that has an all inclusive option. We often find resorts that have all inclusive plans and other plans tend to sometimes be confusing and frustrating. You also can see different service levels from the staff that favor the non all-inclusive guests who are paying and tipping 20% on all their meals and drinks.
The Divi Aruba and the Tamarijn Aruba are also all inclusive all the time for everyone, but they are moderate 3 star properties. They are located in the Eagle Beach area, which we also refer to as the low rise beach. You won't find big resorts in this area or big crowds. You will find basic accommodations and an amazing beach.
If you are looking to do a Caribbean destination wedding in Aruba, the Riu and Occidental again are our top recommendations. The Riu Palace Aruba made our top 10 Caribbean destination wedding resort list for all ages. Since Aruba is not an island where English is not the official language, legal ceremonies require some extra leg work and fees. You also have to have your legal ceremony downtown at city hall. Most of our couples that choose to get married in Aruba, do a symbolic wedding.
