Radisson Aruba Accommodations

Our room was 1717 and below was our view-- Just gorgeous!

I have a layout of the resort at Radisson Aruba Resort Property Map

The Aruba Tower even numbered rooms basically have ocean/poolviews and face southwest. Aruba Tower Suites are beautiful, have a lot of room and are VERY expensive. An ocean/poolview in the Aruba Tower gives you the same view. The northside of the tower are odd numbered rooms which offer partial oceanviews and a view over the island. If the ocean/poolview ends up being more money than you wish to spend, partial oceanviews, odd numbered rooms in the Aruba tower, imho are pretty darn nice as well.

The Bonaire Suite in my mind is the absolute perfect accommodation for a honeymoon. For me at least, it felt like a repeat of our weddingmoon when we stayed at a 5 star hotel in the Bahamas and this suite is the same price. We did not use the huge living room, but the balcony and view and especially the bathroom were to die for. If you can get an upper floor you will still have a little bit of an oceanview and of course a view of all of the grounds. You do not want a Petite Bonaire Suite. There is a difference in price because of the bath. Not worth spending the extra money for a suite not to have a balcony. If that were the case you may as well stay at the Hyatt.

Bonaire tower rooms are the smallest, but also the most centrally located to the rest of the resort. Bonaire tower room view
Aruba tower has the largest rooms and baths, but you will wait for the elevator and have a walk from the lobby on out to the pool and beach beyond.
Curacao tower rooms offer some nice views from the upper floors. Curacao tower room view

They may give you some "feel" for how we felt about the accommodations on our previous stays and the Radisson itself. No matter which accommodation you choose I am sure you will love the Radisson.
