Our daughter got married at Pure Beach restaurant and almost all guests (30) stayed at the Radisson. Lisa Dammerman was awesome to work with as was Nelson! We were able to secure a great nightly rate by guaranteeing 10 rooms for a given number of nights. We were treated exceptionally well from the moment we entered the hotel! The room for the bride and groom was a once in a lifetime accomodation!!! There were always plenty of chairs for lounging by the pool and the cabanas ($25/day, I believe) were a great place to gather. They even supplied a cooler with the cabana. Our rooms were well kept and cleaned on a timely basis. Partial ocean view overlooked the parking lot as well and the balcony was quite small but we didn't spend a lot of time in the room. The room itself was spacious and lovely. Though small, it was nice to have a casino right off the lobby. It turned out to be a fun place for all (adult) ages to hang out and play into the wee hours of the morning.
This is our 4th time in Aruba and Palm Beach is our favorite. The Radisson is located in a perfect spot! Lots of beach front and most anything in walking distance. The "find" this time was dining at Daniel's across the street. Food, drink, service was awesome and reasonable! It was so good we returned a second night. Also dined at Barefoot (~$17 cab ride) on the beach. Hearing we had newlyweds in the party, they immediately came to the table with 10 glasses of champagne!! Great food, ambiance.
Casual dinner/drinks at Gilligans at the Radisson. Average food; good service.
Since there is no where on Trip Advisor to review a wedding planner I am going to do so here. Bonny Stanley (Aruba Weddings by Bonny) was absolutely amazing!! Her flexibility, attention to detail, reassuring demeanor, relationships with vendors, "can do" attitude made the planning and the entire wedding flawless and AMAZING!!! Though rare, we were met with some rain the evening of the wedding. No worries, Bonnie had everything covered! If we had the reception at the Radisson, Lisa Dammerman would have been equally awesome!
Because of some changes at Pure Beach (at the Divi Phoenix) and some recent reviews, I had some concerns that the Pure Beach we knew and loved had changed. All I can say is it was PERFECT from start to finish. No better ambiance and the food and service was absolutely impeccable. Further reviews in the restaurant section of tripadvisor but I would choose Pure Beach without any hesitancy!!
We couldn't be more pleased with the entire experience.
