Aruba Site Visit 5/22/10

Recommended Posts

You have to go to Madame Janettes. It is perfect for a rehearsal dinner and food is delish. Also Flying Fishbones is great for a rehearsal dinner. You can put your toes right in the water while you eat. Best meal on the island.

Also look for my reviews that will be posted the end of this month.

I am certified by the Aruba Tourism Authority as an ACE or Aruba Certified Expert. Visiting the island and getting firsthand knowkedge is part of the requirments to keep this certification.

I will be staying at the Hyatt Regency on Palm Beach for the first 2 nights and then moving to the low rise section to Manchebo Beach Resort. In addition to touring those 2 resorts I have an appointment with Juney at Renaissance Aruba to tour the resort and private island particularly looking at wedding ceremony and reception locations. I will be checking out Bucuti Beach Resort and their adults only Tara Suites too!

In addition to reviews of the resorts, I have a few other items on our agenda which I will review including, renting a car on the island (makes sense for me because I have appointments and places to be but is not necessary for everyone), Jolly Pirates Snorkel Tour (may be perfect for a group excursion, I'll let you know), and many restaurant reviews! I think we have plans for one of the churascarias either Amazonia or Texas de Brazil, Moomba Beach for happy hour and the Sunday BBQ, and possibly Madame Janettes. I have also planned a surprise birthday gift for my husband. He will be touring the island on a Harley! This might make a great wedding gift to your groom if he is into riding.
Hey Maureen! Cant wait for your reviews!! Since your touring the Renaissance private island do you think its possible for you to take some pics of the dance floor/reception area? Also the ambassador suite..since there is no actual "honeymoon suite". Thanks so much!!
Hope your husband is surprised!!

Thanks so much for the information! That's why I like the Westin it gives you the option of AI or not. I wanted to give my guests the ability to choose for themselves. We will definitely go out and check Aruba out and I here so many great things about the food too!

 

Yes, I heard of the Tattoo Party Boat! It is on my Things to Do List.

 

 

I am so happy to hear someone else thinking the way I was! But the tattoo party boat?? I'll have to check that one out!

Flying Fishbone is great. Definately go at sunset. You can sink your toes into the sand. The food is absolutely delicious and i love the way they present the bill to you!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
