    First time in Aruba for romantic getaway!

    Hello! New to this forum!

    It would be great to hear some feed back on which resort might be best for my first time in Aruba. This will be a truly relaxing trip, Im not looking to really venture out for activities or anything, just purely beach lounging.

    Ive read that Eagle Beach might be better for this? Any tips you have would be wonderful!

    We are a couple in our mid-20s and would like something quiet and luxurious, and not somewhere where we have to wake up at 6AM to reserve a chair (but not sure this can be avoided)

    Thank you in advance! Im looking to go in early July!

    welcome to the forum ewalsh!

    1 word BUCUTI

    the bucuti resort is JUST WHAT THE DR ORDERED.

    here is their website
    http://www.bucuti.com/

    and 3 very appealing words NO KIDS ALLOWED

    (disclosure, i love kids but for those that want pampering and not the patter of little feet and screeching voices BUCUTI is for you)

    Amsterdam, Manchebo, or Bucuti? - 2nd honeymoon!

    read this thread
    there are debates over some of the other resorts that "may" be of interest to you.
    i still vote for Bucuti.

    The Bucuti Resort will have a perfect beach for just that.

    July = families in Aruba, for romance you would want the adult only Bucuti or Renaissance Marina Tower. These are adult only.

    More info on the Bucuti

    Hi Dear,
    The Manchebo beach & spa Resort is the perfect place, it quiet and they have the one of the most beautiful and spacious beach.

    There Spa is located right on the beach, they have happy hour from 5pm to 7pm. The food at the French Steak House "oh my god" is to died for. There Ambassodor's is a five course meal for $34.95 per person. if thats too much try there Churrasco Steak.

    Success

    LOVED Bucuti!

    I too vote for Bucuti, the first place we stayed in Aruba -- it was awesome!!!! Quiet, but not stuffy! The most amazing beach with never a wait for a palapa!

    note to Andrea - I don't think these two need reading glasses yet!
