Aeropuerto Internacional Reina Beatrix, Queen Beatrix International Airport
Saturday - day 1
We spent our wedding night at the Kansas City Marriott on the airport grounds. With a 5:55 AM flight, we wanted to be able to just walk down to the lobby 10 minutes before we needed to arrive at the airline check in desk.
We had booked the Marriott's "Wedding Park Here Fly There Package," which included a large suite and came with chocolate covered strawberries & champaign (plus our parking for the week). It was a great deal for $119. We just wished we had been able to arrive before 10PM.
Sunday - day 2
We changed planes in Atlanta and arrived at Queen Beatrix
International Airport in Aruba about 2:25 PM. After clearing customs, we
took a taxi to the Radisson Aruba Resort. Since I had booked the hotel
through a third party, I'd emailed the Radisson directly to confirm the
reservation a couple of days in advance. The clerk told us that we would
need to wait about an hour for our room to be ready, but that instead of
the deluxe ocean view room that we had paid for, we were upgraded to an
1100 square foot suite that takes the entire end of the 5th floor closest
Since we had only snacked on the airplane, we went out to the hotel's beach grill restaurant - Gilligan's for drinks and a snack.
Finally checking in, we were shown to the nicest hotel room I have ever had. There were two marble baths including Jacuzzi & an enormous shower, two TVs, two refrigerators, two balconies. a wet bar, stereo, etc. We would find the service to be excellent as well. They replaced all of the towels, glasses, and ice buckets twice a day. The Radisson also gave us honeymooner T-shirts and champaign.
