Which Marriott in Aruba for Honeymooners?

I am having a very difficult time picking a spot in the caribbean for our honeymoon. We lived in St. Thomas for a couple of years and know how some hotels can be deceiving.

I am sure the Marriott will be great...but which one is plush of the three in Aruba?

Jlof-

We own at the Ocean Club, and I can honestly say that all three facilities are beautiful and comparable in 'plushness.' I guess it really depends on what you are looking for. The Surf Club timeshare is the newest of the three, and will eventually be the largest; brand new gym, lazy river, nice pool bar. The Ocean Club is smaller, and with that, a bit more quiet. The rooms have been recently refurbished there, so 'newness' is not really an issue. The Stellaris (hotel) is equally as nice, with a casino, bar, shoppes, restaurant in the lobby. The nice thing is that no matter which Marriott you choose, all restaurants, shops, bars, etc. are a hop, skip and jump away from each other. I think you will likely see more children at the timeshare facilities than at the hotel. So if this is an issue for you, I would recommend staying at the Marriott Stellaris.

We HM'd at the Stellaris and loved it. (Recommend Exec King Suite upgrade, too!)

Congratulations.

I agree with everyone that you won't go wrong with any of the three. Only other thing I can provide you with is if you're planning on doing your own laundry, you will need to use a community washer/dryer in the Ocean Club while the Surf Club has a washer/dryer built into each villa.
