This is my first post. This is such a great board and so helpful, especially for someone who lives in NY and has only been to Aruba once. My Fiance and I have decided to get married in Aruba in July 2010 and I am collecting all of the information right now. We have narrowed it down to the Radisson, the Marriot and the Hyatt but have only visited the Hyatt. I have not received the pricing yet on the Radisson or the Marriott, but the Hyatt is a bit pricey.
I would like anyone's pro's and cons for any of these venues, or perhaps you just like one over the others. Any advice is welcomed and much needed. Thank you so much in advance!!!
All three resorts are 4 stars and are very nice. The Radisson is scheduled for renovations beginning late spring 2010. The Hyatt and Marriott are both newly renovated. Imo, you cannot go wrong with any of them. There is a bit more info at the threads below:
Thank you so much! This is really helpful. I have reached out to the Radisson but no reply yet and the Marriott just told me the date I originally wanted was unavailable, but did not send me a list of alternative dates or pricing. I am eager to get my venue and date booked so I can move forward.
Having contacted all of them, I can say that the Radisson seems very afforable in comparison to the others. I didn't have the best luck with communication from the Marriott and the Hyatt is beautiful, but is pricier. We are probably going with the Westin because we have had great communication with them and what they are offering by way of wedding reception options and hotel rates seems to be the right fit for us. We have never been to Aruba, so this is all sort of a leap of faith. I am sure whichever one you choose you will be happy. Best of luck!
