All Inclusive's in Aruba?

Looking to go to Aruba for my in June with the lady. These kids of vacations I have to do All-inclusive as I'm a raging alcoholic.

Anyone have any suggestions on a place to stay? I stayed at the RIU in Cabo, I liked that one a lot..but wanted to see what you guys thought.

I'd figure out where Natalee Holloway went and either go/stay away from there depending on your feelings about kidnappings while abroad

I have never been to Aruba, how last time I did an all inclusive was for a Spring Break trip and ended up just booking through STA. They had quite a few options and made the process simple.

I think he was Dutch.

Either way, Aruba is very pretty.

Boocooti beach suites. I'm sure I spelled that wrong, but you get the idea. Check it out.

Don't do all inclusive. The island has many awesome restaurants and bars on the beach. I was there for my honeymoon, not all inclusive. It's a safe and friendly place, feel free to walk around and explore, unlike other vacation destinations. I look forward to going back!

Edit: it's safe and friendly unless you are an intoxicated caucasian female who trusts foreign strangers!

Stayed at RIU an it isn't bad. Def the best all inclusive in Aruba, but don't expect four star type amenities and quality. Also there tend to be a lot of families there but it is not far from some good bars and cool spots.

Aruba isn't a good island for all inclusives. If you want an all inclusive, go to Whitehouse in jamaica. If you insist on Aruba, do what I do, save a small fortune by renting an apartment here.... http://www.costalinda-aruba.com/

One of the best/cleanest beaches on Aruba, and with the money saved, drink yourself into oblivion. This isn't a party place, so again, if you want to party and get hammered with the youngin's go to Jamaica.

I am going here next friday, and a 2 bedroom for a week is $900.

My friend took a cruise out of NY/NJ to Aruba, and absolutely loved it. Said he wants to go back next year. He said everyone is very friendly and didn't see any "ghetto" areas.
