I went for my honeymoon. We stayed at the Divi Divi.. It was 9 years ago. We loved it. Beautiful beaches..Fun water sports..Great weather..rarely rains and hot with a nice tradewind. Im not sure if its still there but we went to an argentinian steakhouse called El Gaucho when we were there..Probably the best steak I ever had..You should enjoy it..Have fun !

Well, youd be my 1st huddler that I met, so you can go, but only if we can break the rules and have a tickle fight.

I've been twice in the past three years and my in-laws just bought a share place at the Occidental in Aruba. PM me for specific questions, but here goes my general summary.

 

It's a great place if you like to sit on the beach (or pool), eat, drink and gamble. There is also good diving/snorkeling and many boat tours are available. Aside from the beaches, boat tours and resorts, there isn't much there, but not sure if there is much else you'd want in a honeymoon spot.

 

I've stayed at the Radison and Marriot Beach Club, both nice resorts. I'd put the Radison slightly ahead of the Marriott because I thought the beach there was nicer and it was a little bit more intimate. The Marriot has three properties right on top of each other and it's a pretty masive resort. I also liked the casino at the Radison better and they have a separate poker room which offers nightly tourney's and cash games. Most of the resorts are located along one stretch of beach on the northwest part of the island, but there is also a downtown area that has some hotels and restaurants. It's also where the cruise ships dock.

 

As Whomper pointed out, El Gaucho is a good steakhouse in the downtown area. Good meat and you may need to make a res. Most of the hotels have good restaurants. I particularly liked the places in the Hyatt hotel and had a great sushi meal in the Japanesse place in the Hyatt.
