Kristen Munro · Getting married on 09/05/2020
We love this resort!
We booked the Hilton to host our guest for our wedding at Tiera Del Sol, but due to COVID-19 we had to cancel. The Hilton was amazing and took care of us literally the whole process of planning our wedding to the very end (when we had to cancel). We are so thankful for them and Nayla for being so responsive and on top of things. As a destination bride and groom it can be really stressful planning the wedding, but they were so great and helpful.Sent on 06/23/2020
Ps. The hotel is AMAZING! If you haven't stayed here you MUST! It is absolutely gorgeous. The rooms are so cute and the restaurants are delicious. Plus the beach is pristine!!! I would highly recommend hosting your wedding or having your guests stay at the Hilton in Aruba!

Great experience all around
Lisa and Nayla, at the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resorts and Casino, are a great team! We reached out to all the high rise hotels and the Renaissance. The Hilton was the first of the venue's to respond, and throughout, Lisa and Nayla were consistently attentive. We had 70 guests and everyone we talked to said it was the best wedding they have ever been to.
Lisa was the lead and handled all of the communication. She gave us a few options for bands, DJ's, Hair and makeup, photographers and videographers. We were so happy with all of our choices! The flowers were through a vendor used by the Hilton and they did everything I wanted. They used the picture I sent them, along with descriptions of the flowers we wanted and they made it look beautiful!
The best thing we did for ourselves, was create a working document with all the aspects of the wedding on it. It kept things organized, and made communication very easy. We worked back and forth with the specifics and it worked out great.
The venue was perfect. We had our wedding and cocktail hour on the beach (with the sun setting), and the reception was on the pool deck. They set it up beautifully. We gave Lisa a few items to make it a little more personal, and she did exactly what would make it special! She brought the flowers for our hair to our room, pinned all the boutonnières on the men and ring bearer, made sure everything went smoothly, started on time, and was our biggest asset. It was a blast!
If you have any concerns during the process, just ask questions. Email from the states is easy. They may take a few days to get back to you (its Aruba), but don't fret, it all works out perfectly in the end!

Lisandra Dammerman gave me the wedding of my dreams. Choosing a destination wedding seemed stressful in planning since I wasn't able to be there physically but Lisa eased the process. Lisa took all of my ideas into account. She arranged everything, from flowers to my husbands favorite beer. On my wedding day, I was completely blown away at how precise everything was. Everything I asked for was conveyed in that very day! I had a beautiful bohemian arch where I said "I DO!". The food was placed just like I had requested. The DJ she picked out was amazing. I look back at my wedding day with such great memories and a dear friend, Lisa. I recommend having your wedding with Lisa. There's no better way to say "I DO!". All my love goes out to her and this beautiful venue!Sent on 11/20/2019

If you're thinking of getting married in Aruba, look no further. Not only are the grounds of the Hilton stunning, but their wedding coordinator Lisandra is the incomparable. Lisandra and her assistant Nayla made all of our dreams come true. The whole wedding went on without a hitch! We planned a beach ceremony and a beach reception. I wouldn't change one aspect of the whole night. Lisandra made sure everything was perfect! She went above and beyond. One perfect example would be how she treated my sister. My sister has down syndrome and sometimes doesn't get enthusiastic about certain situations. Walking down the aisle was not on her agenda. So Lisandra offered and delivered her ice cream after she went down the aisle! It was incredible. If I had to do my day over, I wouldn't change a thing!Sent on 11/19/2019

AMAZING wedding experience
My wedding was at the Hilton in Aruba on 8/31/2019. I cannot describe how magical and perfect the entire weekend was. Lisa was so easy to work with before (while planning) and during our wedding weekend. Lisa and her assistant Nayla went above and beyond to give me and my guests the ultimate wedding weekend experience. ALL the staff at the Hilton were friendly and helpful. We had 130 guests at the wedding and hosted a welcome dinner and day after brunch as well. All the events went off without a hitch. My guests were very pleased with the service and staff. Anything we needed, even last minute Lisa made possible for us, all with a smile. The Hilton Aruba FAR exceeded mine and my husband's expectation for our big day.Sent on 11/20/2019

I cannot say enough amazing things about the wedding planners Lisa and Nayla. Having a destination wedding at the Hilton Aruba is highly recommended! These ladies were amazing and handled every detail down to food allergies and special accommodations. We cannot thank them enough! We cannot wait to come back and do our vow renewals! Our guests had an amazing time! This was a fairy tale wedding venue! Thank you, Maddalena and David Minkoff!Sent on 07/23/2019

Best bridal specialist there is!
I planned my wedding in Aruba at the Hilton. Lisandra is the bridal specialist and worked with me for 8 months planning the big day. Since everything is done by e-mail and phone it can be stressful, but trust me, Lisa is the best of the best and will make sure every single detail is taken care of. I had NO stress the day of my wedding and everything looked perfect, beyond my expectations! The food was excellent, Lisa helped me pick out a great DJ and steel pan drum. She gave me suggestions and was very organized through the process. She was very responsive and if she was busy she had an assistant get back to me very quickly. If you're planning a wedding in Aruba, chose the Hilton!Sent on 04/30/2019

The minute we stepped foot onto the grounds of the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort and met with Lisandra Dammerman we knew that we had found our venue and coordinator for our 10/6/18 destination wedding. Lisa did an amazing job showing us all of the amenities the Hilton has to offer. She gave us helpful suggestions and creative ideas to make the most out of our wedding weekend which included a welcome gathering, beach ceremony, outdoor reception and a farewell brunch. Once we booked, Lisa made it a priority to help us select and reserve the best wedding vendors in Aruba. Lisa coordinated everything from the officiant, food, cake, flowers, and hair/makeup. We opted to fly in our own DJ from Boston at which time Lisa put us in touch with a production company to handle all of our logistical needs. Throughout the 11 months of planning Lisa remained in contact with us. She was very easy to get in touch with which made planning an international wedding a breeze! Upon our arrival, Lisa took the time to greet us at the front desk. We booked 20+ rooms and hosted 60 guests. The Hilton upgraded our room to an ocean balcony suite at no additional cost. Days before the wedding Lisa set up a time for us to meet with all of our vendors and go over every last detail with them. Our guests had a wonderful time and raved about the food, venue, and incredible staff. Lisa along with her assistant Nyala, banquet manager Jorge and complete support staff treated all of us like family. They accommodated every one of our requests and made our entire experience unforgettable! Unfortunately it did begin to rain half way through our reception which was held on the pool deck. Lisa and her team did an amazing job activating and executing the pre-discussed rain plan. Within 15 minutes all of our guests were inside the ballroom dancing, drinking and laughing. Our guests said the rain was a blessing and did not hinder the wedding one bit. We cannot recommend the Hilton and Lisandra Dammerman enough!Sent on 10/14/2018

Hilton Aruba- A Perfect 10!!
My wife and I had our wedding reception at the Hilton Aruba this past Labor Day weekend. Lisa and her team went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations for our special day. The entire night went without a hitch-- there wasn't an ounce of stress for us and we have Lisa to thank for that! She's a pro and you'll understand why she has a pristine reputation when you hire her. She was instrumental with communication and coordination with our church coordinator, photographer, florist and DJ. Every facet to the night was perfect. We had an awesome experience at the Hilton Aruba and strongly recommend to speak to Lisa when you plan a destination wedding in Aruba!!Sent on 12/07/2018

Lisa made all of our dreams come true!
We had our wedding at the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino on July 14, 2018 and it was picture perfect. From the planning process, to up to the wedding, and even in the days and weeks following, Lisa was amazing. She was very easy to talk to and get in contact with and went above and beyond in making sure my wife and I were happy. Lisa took care of every aspect to make sure everything went to plan without a hitch. If anyone is even considering having a destination wedding in the Caribbean, I would have all of the confidence in the world in Lisa and her staff at the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort.Sent on 01/08/2019

Lisa Dammerman is simply the best. Her warm and friendly personality is the reason that we selected the Hilton to host our wedding. Lisa is extremely organized and accommodating and she made the wedding planning process as easy as it could have possibly been! We were very appreciative of her input when choosing vendors and our wedding turned out to be beautiful beyond our imagination thanks to her hard work. We visited Aruba 11 months prior to the wedding for a planning trip and stayed at the Hilton. When we met with Lisa during this visit, we were immediately convinced that she would be our wedding planner. We were very happy with our stay for both the planning and wedding trip. Our guests loved the beach and it was the perfect setting for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We were very pleased with the waiters, waitresses, bartenders and reception manager, Jorge, who went above and beyond to make our guests comfortable. Everyone was extremely courteous, kind and professional. Lisa is amazing and we highly recommend her and this beautiful hotel!Sent on 05/12/2018

Lisa Dammerman was the BEST wedding planner one could hope for. She was very attentive to all of my wife's details. Planning a wedding remotely isn't the easiest. She returned all of my wife's calls very quickly, found her great options to choose from and delivered on everything promised. The location was very nice and it enabled us to have a great wedding. Thanks Hilton and Thanks Lisa!!!!Sent on 12/21/2017

My now husband and I were married at The Hilton this past Saturday 7/15/17 and were absolutely thrilled with every single detail of all three events - welcome dinner, wedding, and farewell brunch, all of which were hosted on site. Lisa Dammerman was our on site wedding planner and she was and is just absolutely phenomenal! We connected with her immediately when we met with her for the first time in May 2016 and she played a huge part in our decision to get married at The Hilton Aruba. Lisa made planning a wedding overseas a breeze and our entire stay at The Hilton felt like a dream. Our guests had a wonderful time at all three events and raved about the food, venue, and super attentive staff. Lisa hired DJ Tino for our reception and he was fantastic - we only sat down to eat, otherwise we were dancing with our guests! Our steel pan drum player (ceremony and cocktail hour) Lisa hired was also fantastic and a must in our opinion for an authentic Caribbean feel. Eduardo, Elvin, and all staff at all three events were beyond attentive and took amazing care of myself, my husband, and all of our guests. Angela from Bella Aruba was our photographer and Ingmar Maduro was our videographer and they were both wonderful to work with and took great care to make sure we got all the shots we wanted - can't wait to see pics/video! Our cake was also absolutely delicious + beautiful and our flowers were gorgeous. Everything was just perfect from start to finish and we honestly cannot recommend the Hilton, Lisa, and team enough!Sent on 07/23/2017
Thank you Lisa and team for everything - we will be forever grateful.

Raynold Semeleer was the wedding coordinator for my wedding at the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino. The wedding was planned from the United States but when I arrived in Aruba everything was scheduled and planned exactly as we had discussed. Raynold recommended great vendors and the staff at the Hilton did such a good job that our time in Aruba was stress free and I was able to have fun with my friends and family.Sent on 05/26/2017

I have been coming to Aruba for 10 years now so of course when my daughter Jessica was planning her wedding on a beach there was no other choice than to pick Aruba for us! I found Lisa Dammerman on the website for the radisson (now the hilton) and contacted her due to all of the wonderful reviews that people shared about her! Let me tell you she super exceeded our expectations to the fullest. She was johnny on the spot from the beginning to the end to help my daughter plan her perfect wedding. Any questions I had she answered right away either by email or phone she took all matters into her own hands and it was for sure a worry free wedding. We literally, once our basic decisions were made, had to do nothing but show up for the most spectacular wedding I have ever been to and every guest felt the same way they are still talking about it! Not only was Lisa so friendly and professional the waiters were phenomenal we chose the open bar on the beach and then had our reception by the pool. The hors d'oeuvres they served were fantastic and seemed like they were never ending! You never had an empty glass in front of you the waiters were on top of their game! The food was fantastic as well, the restaurant manager even came out to talk with us to make sure everything was to our liking now that is customer service for you! To not pick Lisa as your wedding planner or the hilton woul be a major mistake if I could give them more than 5 stars I would you will not be sorry!Sent on 02/11/2016

We are so happy for having Lissa as our wedding coordinator at the Aruba Hilton Resort and Casino. Lissa did a wonderful job with our wedding since day 1.

My wedding was fantastic. The wedding coordinator Lisa is extremely helpful and keeps you up to date and informed as your wedding gets closer. She's prompt at getting back to you via email. I got married on the pool deck, it was beautiful. The food was delicious, my guests raved about it. The service was excellent, everyone always had a full drink in their hand or waiting for them when they sat back down at the table. The only bad thing was the bathroom. They literally JUST cleaned it before my wedding and it still smelled horrendous- both the male and female bathrooms. And they were so HOT. But other than that, everything was great!Sent on 10/01/2015

Once in a lifetime
Deciding to get married at The Hilton Aruba was the best decision we could have made! We had our hesitations about getting married outside of the US, but thanks to the wedding planners and entire staff at The Hilton Hotel, we would do it the same way 100 times over. Lisandra, Nayla, and Lissy were extremely professional, diligent, and prepared for anything that came their way. Even when it decided to pour rain on the day of our wedding, they moved quickly to set up the entire party indoors at the last minute. The ceremony was just as lovely and well put together as if it went according to plan, you could tell this was not the first time Lisandra and Nayla had to improvise or make last minute arrangements. Lissy and I were in constant contact to mange the paperwork, meeting with these 3 ladies was like talking and laughing with an old friend. I have to give credit to the staff at The Sunset Grill, they were organized at getting our orders taken and delivering to the table, they were charming and fun, and absolutely delightful at interacting and entertaining our 20 guest. The entire Hilton staff made our special day the most wonderful experience, we could not have asked for more. My husband and I will be going back to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. The Hilton resort was clean, beautiful, and easy to navigate. The staff is phenomenal and eager to please, we received free champagne and a huge gift basket as a wedding gift from the hotel. As for the rest of our time on the island, our family has not stopped talking about this vacation, it is truly "One Happy Island."Sent on 04/07/2019
