    Hi everyone! newbie here, searching for any help I can get!

    Well first off, My soon to be husband and I are going to be spending our honeymoon in Aruba from September 4th to September 12th. We are very excited but are in need of some advice and any recomendations. For one thing, we havent booked a hotel yet as we were going to book an all inclusive but decided against it. I would really like to expierience all the island has to offer and not feel obligated to get my moneys worth on an all inclusive. That being said, any recomendations on a nice resort are welcome. I was looking into the Amsterdam or Renisance?? I would like somthing adult orientated but also fun. Somewhere on the beach but near restaurants. As for activities, the Jolly pirates sail and a catamaran cruise are on the list. I would also like to book a couples massage on the beach? I know we should relax but i am also looking into an atv tour and snuba activity. We also read about the nightime party buses and were wondering which of the two was better the Kukoo kunuku or banana bus? Sorry for the information overload but i would really love to hear some adive from veterans and make this vacation really memorable. Thank you so much in advance!

    kukoo kunuku

    my suggestion is to weigh out all inclusive vs non.
    how about partial?

    Welcome to the forum and best wishes for your wedding.

    On the beach with close restaurants and most of the activities you are looking for seems to fit Palm Beach. I'm with Andrea.... check out the partial inclusive plans.... breakfast or breakfast and lunch. Whatever you do will bring big smiles to your faces and an addiction for the wonderful island of Aruba!!!

    The Westin is a great place for a honeymoon and they offer a breakfast package room as well.
    The Renaissance beach resort is also a good place for a honeymoon. Their main beach is on a private island that they take you to by boat. There is an adult beach and a family beach area as well as a restaurant on the island. They also have an area on the island that they give couples massages in a hut over the water. The resort is located on the water in Oranjestad and is within walking distance to many restaurants, shopping casinos and nightlife.
