When are you planning to visit? Since it is now high season, you may want to start on your hotel and airfare reservations sooner rather than later. As Bobcat said, the best thing to do is to read the Q&A's over to the right - there is a lot of information to absorb. Research is key in knowing what to expect and making the most out of your vacation.

Bucuti is a wonderful place for a honeymoon as it is adults only. They do book up quickly though.

Bucuti would be my first choice for honeymoon. No kids and they really do cater to honeymooners. A lot of repeat guest originally came on their honeymoon.

Hotels are located on two beaches in Aruba. High rise, chain hotels such as Marriott, Hyatt, Radisson & Holiday Inn are located on Palm Beach. Low rise, boutique type hotels are located on Eagle Beach. They include Bucuti, Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort and Manchebo Beach Hotel. To get started, I suggest that you visit the web sites of these hotels. You can start out with one hotel on each beach and get a feel for the properties and then expand your search. Everyone has a different spin on hotels. You will not find universal opinion to favor one over the others. Based upon my perception of the most popular choices, check Bucuti on Eagle Beach and Radisson on Palm Beach. If you are considering Bucuti, you will have to book very early. I would say six months in advance. It is smaller than the hotels on Palm Beach and fills up quickly.

We stayed at Bucuti for our honeymoon and we loved it there! It is on a wonderful section of beach and the palapas are spaced far apart. Their breakfast is included. It is walking distance to restaurants and a casino and some shops.
