    Occidental

    Has anyone stayed at the Occidental and can give me a review? We were at the Riu Palace a couple years ago and loved it and would like to go back there for our wedding next year but not sure if all of our guests can afford it. Where in relation to the Riu is the Occidental? I also had heard that it was bought out by another company does anyone have any updates on the renovations happening? None of our guests have been to Aruba before so we would like to bring them to a nice resort and show them why we fell in love with the island and wanted to come back. If anyone has been married at any resorts in Aruba that would be great to hear how everything went. We are open to suggestions but would need to stay at AI. Thanks in advance!

    Hi and welcome to the Aruba.com community forum

    here is a link to the resort map https://www.google.com/search?q=reso...I5MYYo2RoIM%3A

    as you can see the Occidental is only 2 hotels north of the original Riu
    (the Westin is now also the Riu adult only property)

    i am also going to copy this to the Wedding category.
    make sure you visit that category and see the posts of other brides/grooms

    the Occidental has been bought by Bavarro and i do not know if there are renovations planned.

    have you considered Divi All Inclusive for your guests?
