Not of Marriott Quality and Service

First let me say I rarely ever write negative reviews but felt I needed to in this case. This hotel is not of a normal Marriott quality. The food was not bad but limited choices as several of the restaurants are the same thing just in different towers. There is really only one choice that is not buffet style for all meals and you can only eat so much steak although the steak restaurant is good. The service was subpar in many cases being on the all-inclusive plan seemed to be an issue as many people did not want to wait on you as they wanted the cash paying customers who gave them additional tips. The all-inclusive plan was said to include tips but on several occasions I was told that they had cash paying customers to attend to first. There was a waitress named Carolina at the Marina tower who was EXCELLENT and took very good care of us and was a godsend! In many cases we just waited for her to get there rather than even try to get someone else who pretended as if we were invisible. The sodas are almost always flat so I had to go pay for canned sodas as they did not seem to think anything was wrong with it after many attempts to report it although our whole group said the same thing. Secondly, the rooms are not huge and have limited views if any other than streets and traffic, the noise in the rooms was terrible as either the wind blew against the balcony doors to the point of severe whistling or the music was terribly loud and disruptive, if you want to sleep before midnight then forget it unless you have ear plugs! The hotel staff was not accommodating to consider moving us although the hotel was not full but there are honestly not many places you could move without the noise. The music was a constant techno beat at all times and sounded like a broken record. The rooms are so small there is nowhere to even lay a suitcase open flat in order to pack or unpack except for the bed itself which is not easy when packing to go home and doing some the night before with the final items the next morning. There is a small fridge in the room but does not keep anything cold. Although there is considerable shopping right there at the hotel it is all very expensive designer stuff unless you walk behind the hotel to the shopping district and took the trolley. This hotel is right in the middle of town so heavy traffic and many zooming cars and racing motorcycles at night as well that was very noisy. The beach is hot and very few cabanas and those that were there were useless. Honestly not much of a beach and very small. The ride to the beach was ok but usually rough and you had to wait 10 mins or longer for a ride even though there were multiple boats they seemed to run on the same time schedule rather than constantly rotating back and forth. Cabs are expensive even to go 5-6 miles expect to pay $20 both ways. The beach is a waste if you plan on snorkeling as there is really nothing but a rock barrier that allows for a beach 'pool' of water where no fish seemed to be.

Fun beach trip

Great hotel for adults. I think the all inclusive package was definitely worth it as the food and drinks are pretty pricey. The flamingo adults only beach on the private island was hands down my favorite part! You get to feed the flamingos, float around in the ocean, and have food and drinks delivered to you at your beach chair. The check in process at the hotel was slow and they needed a few more people to help at busy times but besides that, no complaints from us!

Decent, but not great

This was a decent trip, but now what I would call great. First of all, when we arrived we discovered there was no beach attached to the hotel. The pictures all showed a beach, but it turns out you have to take a 15 boat ride to get to the beach ... which was actually a private cove, and not all that big. Secondly, when we arrived, they didn't have my reservation. Thank god I had printed out my confirmation, and after about 20 minutes, they found rooms for us. Thirdly, we never had hot water in the room the entire stay ... luke cold at best for all our showers. Probably the best part was the food. They had several options, and two nice places that included steak, crab, lobster and much more. Also, it was fun to have a casino just a stones throw from the hotel. All in all, good trip, but probably would not go back.

Hotel Description

Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino: Make the Perfect Choice for Everyone

Ready to let your cares melt away to the soothing sound of waves on a private island with everything you desire at your fingertips? Only a short ferry ride from Renaissance Island and located in the heart of downtown Oranjestad, Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino offers all inclusive excitement and relaxation. With two distinct options (the adults-only Renaissance Marina Hotel and family-friendly Renaissance Ocean Suites), you and your honey can enjoy a cannonball-free happy hour sipping legendary blue martinis and families can host belly-flop contests in the tropical pools.

Renaissance Aruba offers easy access to Renaissance Island, exclusively for Renaissance Aruba's hotel guests. Complimentary water taxis ferry guests to a lush, 40-acre island boasting two private beaches. Iguana Beach allows young skippers to romp on white sands, leaving romantics to revel in peace at the adults-only Flamingo Beach. If Zen is your pirate nickname, wander over to Spa Cove and splurge on a sunset couple's massage with champagne, or cash in your all inclusive meal ticket at Papagayo Bar and Grill for rockin' banana jammers that'll have you hangin' with the flamingos!

The Dive Center and Marina make it easy to test your sea legs. Snorkel or scuba dive through an underwater dream world, or stay afloat with a kayak or sailing trip. Tennis and volleyball are available for those who prefer to leave the ocean to Nemo. The nearby Robert Trent Jones II-designed championship golf course is just the place to test your long drive. If you prefer Vegas-style luxury, two casinos, 24-hour entertainment and a 130-shop mall are within walking distance.

After all this activity, you'll love the eight restaurants at Renaissance Aruba Resort and Casino. The all inclusive package makes it simple to try Blue's tapas menu. L.G. Smith's Steak & Chop House's signature dessert, a mango mascarpone tart big enough for the family to enjoy.

Adventurous souls and sandy-bottomed beach bums unite! Whether you want hustle and bustle, non-stop casino action or a water taxi to the silky sands of Renaissance Island, Renaissance Aruba Resort and Casino has everything your island heart desires.
