    Honeymoon sept 24 2012

    My soon to be husband and I plan on going to Aruba for our honeymoon from septemeber 24-oct 2..Im very worried about the weather..does someone have an idea how the weather will be around that time? I understand its outside the hurricane belt but many say it rains alot in september...Also looking for a hotel preferably all inclusive (Romantic, candle light dinners on beach, massages, fun activities to do) I understand there are 3 areas in aruba plam beach/eagle beach and oranjestad what is the difference between all three which is the best for honeymooners? I would really appreciate your help thank you

    aruba is known for their wonderful restaurants, so would you be willing to do no all inclusive?
    the reason i ask is because the BUCUTI is an adults only very lovely resort that really caters to couples, but as far as i know, they are not All Inclusive.

    Also too Amsterdam Manor, there are few children there, and they are home to Passions on the beach restaurant.

    Hyatt and Marriott and Radisson are beautiful and have some beach setting dining options.

    these are non all inclusive resorts

    Some all inclusive hotels and this may not be a complete listing.
    Occidental
    Riu
    Tamarijn/Divi
    Renaissance Marina Tower (has an all inclusive option)
    Manchebo (has an all inclusive option)

    weather for September is usually hot (heck it is always hot)

    the breezes may be diminished

    it is hurricane season and although aruba is almost outside of the hurricane belt, hurricanes and tropical storms sometimes do have an indirect effect. if there is a storm north or north west of aruba, sometimes that storm tends to suck away the aruba tradewinds, making the heat very uncomfortable. but that happens infrequently.

    we have been to aruba 3 times in september and once we had rain from the remnants of hurricane ivan (2004)

    Hi Andrea!

    Thank you for your response...Bucuti is were we wanted to stay but its booked we fell in love with that place!! we were now leaning towards the renaissance or the hyatt...I dont mind if its too hot or humidity....I just hate rain! rain is the only factor that will ruin our vacation..im choosing Aruba beacuse it is outside the hurricane belt and theres a small chance of anything ever happening there..so I hope im making the right decision by choosing Aruba. The rest of the caribbean im to scared to risk

    If you HAVE to do AI then the renaissance does have a good option. We did it one year awhile back and they do offer some good places on the grounds and in the seaport mall area. We did the AI because we got a steal for it but still found ourselves spending more money going to our favorites around town.

    Having been to Aruba a couple of times before, I highly recommend no all inclusives. You will be stuck to the same restaurants again and again. You will end up wandering to the centre where the restaurants are tempting you with mouth watering menu signs. The food is fantastic out there and you will get tempted, paying twice for food. Food for thought

    All inclusive is great when you don't want to leave the property - which is not the case in Aruba. I highly recommend against AI in Aruba. Way too much to go do and see to lock yourself into AI for a week. Save AI for Dominican Repub, Mexico or Jamaica.
