My FI and I are looking into going to Aruba for our honeymoon. We’ve both never been before and we’re so excited! Already, 9 months out, I’m ready to be relaxing on a gorgeous beach 🙂
Have any of you ever stayed at the Amsterdam Manor? Would you reccommend it? Reccommendations for other places to stay are welcome as well 🙂
Also, how is the food on the island? Should we go all inclusive? Is it worth it, money-wise, for drinks and lunch if we decide to leave some nights for dinner? Is it necessary to leave some nights for dinner? All-inclusive is an additional $125 per person per day.

Do not go with an all-inclusive plan.. Aruba is a great place to explore on your own. Amsterdam Manor is a great local property and you should enjoy your time. Their beachfront restaurant is Passions and sooo romantic. Dig your feet into the powder-soft sand while they deliver great food to your table. Even as a non-foodie, I found the whole experience amazing!

@arielmerms: What did you decide? I am doing some research right now and I am thinking about adding the all-inclusive on to our package at Amsterdam Manor…
I really love the Bucuti and Tara resort but FI and I both like to drink and I’m thinking lunch + booze would be worth the $125/pp/day. Then we can do some dinners on resort and some off resort without feeling like we are wasting our money!

@weatherbug: if we go to Aruba, we will not be doing an all-inclusive plan because we heard that the island has fantastic food. I was waiting around with booking airfare and it just jumped $200 so I’m not sure what we’re doing now. Hopefully airfare goes back down!
