Paradise Beach Blogger

For the past few weeks we have been relentlessly asking that everyone vote for us for the Resort To Romance beach blogger contest put on by Marriott Caribbean & Mexico. We greatly appreciate everyone that took the time to vote and thanks to you we have won the contest!

When we found out on Monday that we won we were in a little bit of shock, but after it became real we realized that we had 72 hours to choose our destination.  After much deliberation we narrowed it down to the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino and the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort.

Both resorts look absolutely amazing, so we knew we would be happy with either one we would choose.  Ultimately we decided on the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino located on Palm Beach!  This resort was chosen for a number of reasons.  The first being that Aruba is absolutely beautiful.  We have both been there a couple of times, but it was while on cruise ships, so we have never fully got to enjoy all that the island has to offer. Each time we have visited the island we have left wanting more and we are glad that we now have the opportunity to fully experience Aruba!

The second reason is the Arubans.  Each time we have been there the locals have been extremely friendly.  Like their ad campaign says, “90,000 Friends that you haven’t met yet,” well we decided it is time for us to meet our 90,000 friends!

Another factor was Aruba’s location.  With it being hurricane season we decided to choose an island that has a relatively small chance of being affected by one of these storms.  With it’s location lying outside of the Hurricane Belt it is a good bet that we will have amazing weather for our trip.

We’re sure a number of you have been to Aruba, so please let us know any suggestions for beaches, restaurants, activities, etc…that we should do during our stay!  During our trip we will be blogging for Marriott, so you can keep up with everything we get to experience in Aruba!  Thanks again to everyone that voted for us!
