    Smile June weather and Where to Stay "honeymoon"

    Hi there my partner and I are looking to visit Aruba for our honeymoon we would be going for the first 2 weeks of June. I'm rather confused though as I have read mixed reviews on how strong the trade winds are in June and wondered if they really are as bad as some make out? Can it be unbearable to lay on the beach? As I heard people mention being sandblasted.
    I don't mind a strong breeze as it keeps you cool but I'm worried it may be a hindrance


    Many thanks

    No worries..... trade winds in he mid teens year round and just enough for a good sailing experience or to simply keep you cooler. Sand blasting is very rare. Welcome to the forum and I guarantee that you will love your Aruba. Great choice for your honeymoon! Where are you considering staying?

    June is our favorite month of the year to visit Aruba.

    Being sandblasted may depend upon where you stay. Some hotels block the wind and others do not.

    We have been driven from the beach a couple of times during the month of June while staying at the Westin but it would not stop us from staying there again.

    We love the Radisson..... but it all depends on what you want. We're in our 60's, only wanna hang at the beach and enjoy wonderful restaurants. We don't do a lot of activities except for sailing a coupla times. Gonna leave the research to you at this point. Always happy to answer questions if I can. Like Andrea noted.... check out hotel in the where to stay section that's a great start.

    Thanks everyone for your comments. We are in our 20s and although we like a lively night out now and again we much prefer quieter resorts where we can relax and have a nice meal. Mostly soaking up the sun during day but like a couple of days where we can explore and do a few activities. The accommodations in all the above posts are on the top of my list, they all look lovely. Has anyone stayed at the Riu Palace? As that seems to be one several travel agents I have spoken to have suggested but I much prefer to go on advice from people how have stayed in or around those hotels

    it depends on what you want re: food/beverages.

    if you want upscale all inclusive then yes, the RIU might be the best bet, nice beach although kind of narrow and the area of palm beach is busy.

    if you want laid back all inclusive in a quieter area then the Divi AI would be a good choice. nice beach druif beach. OR the Manchebo Resort AI option on Eagle Beach.

    Non all inclusive with a great beach is Bucuti, laid back and quiet. (Eagle beach)

    Non all inclusive Radisson, great beach, busy area at Palm Beach.

    Although i say busy area, by no means is it like being on a highway.
    There are many more options in that busier area. More restaurants, more entertainment, shopping, lots in walking distance.


    After reading your post..........i am really leaning to strongly recommending
    the DIVI AI or MANCHEBO AI option.

    Be aware though.............there are so MANY great restaurants on Aruba, it is unnecessary for many, to go the all inclusive route.

    If we were talking about Jamaica or the DR, I would say AI is the only way to go.
    Aruba is very different though! Being out and wandering around in the evening is commonplace and pretty safe. (taking the same precautions that you would at home)

    Thankyou for the great advice it's really helpful to be honest we do like to go out in different restaurants and actually get the feel of the place which you can lose in AI resorts. Because we are from the UK there are only certain well known travel agents who deal with packages and only offer a small selection of hotels. I've looked online at various sites, finding flights and then accommodation but some of the AI packages work out a better deal. Guess it's a case now of just choosing which hotel we prefer and find the best deal even if it is AI we would definitely venture out to the restaurants in the evenings
