My wife and I had our wedding at Passions on the Beach on 10/28/16 and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! The wedding coordinators, Anne Maduro and Lissy Lampe, were fantastic throughout the whole experience. They got back to us in a timely manner with all of our questions through e-mail and we went over everything in detail when we arrived in Aruba to make sure everything was the way we wanted for our special day. Everything was set up perfect at the ceremony and reception, and the food/entertainment was excellent! The entire night ran smoothly and the Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort staff were very attentive with making sure we all had drinks and food throughout the night. I wish we could re-live this day all over again! I would highly recommend using Anne and Lissy for your future celebrations/events!

My wife and I renewed our wedding vows and held a small reception (Passions was suggested by our photographer Bella Aruba) at Passions. It was for 9 adults and 1 small child. I do not have enough words to praise this venue. The staff was professional/attentive and catered to our every need, the food was perfect and the venue was perfect. You would be hard pressed to find a finer establishment than Passions by the Beach. Thank you for a memorable evening!Sent on 08/30/2016

Anne Maduro, the wedding coordinator at the Amsterdam Beach Manor in Aruba was a blessing. Always quick to respond back to my emails. She even called me the day before I was leaving to update me on some last minute details. The food and beverage at Passions restaurant where my reception was, was absolutely delicious. The staff was contstantly coming around to make sure the glasses were full and kept bringing appetizers over during the cocktail hour. Anne even brought over appetizers and some rum punches for my husband and I and the wedding party. The staff at the resort itself was also so kind and genuine. If your looking for a destination, please consider "one happy island" and the Amsterdam Beach manor. When I go back to Aruba, I will never stay anywhere else. Thank you Anne and your staff.Sent on 07/28/2014

Anne Maduro and the entire Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort staff were wonderful. We had picked the divi trees as our dream wedding location, and Anne and her staff made the evening special and memorable. We were lucky enough to meet with Anne in January, before the May 30 wedding date, and she was absolutely wonderful to work with. She gave us the run down of everything, from the food, drinks, to the reception details. She was attentive to our needs, responsive to emails, and a wonderful person to be around. She genuinely cared about us - she was not just another wedding planner, doing her job. She made it personal, and because of that, the wedding was flawless.Sent on 07/08/2014
The food was outstanding (we chose the Caribbean Buffet) and there was PLENTY of food. Better yet - the Amsterdam staff kept bringing out more and more food. When one tray was empty, another would magically appear. And at the end of the night, all of the remaining food was packed away and delivered to our room, so we had leftovers (that we promptly put out for the attendees as the wedding for a late night snack!).
Thanks to Anne and the Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort staff, we had the perfect wedding. We would highly recommend the Amsterdam Manor/Passions on the beach as a wedding location - the ceremony between the trees is magical, and the reception location is absolutely perfect, with toes in the sand, but the deck used as the dance floor. And the best part about having a wedding at the Amsterdam Manor - you get to work with Anne Maduro! THANK YOU ANNE FOR A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE AND THE PERFECT WEDDING! We look forward to seeing you again on one of our many future trips to Aruba.
