Hotel not worth the hype

Kudos to the marketing team at the Renaissance Aruba for their promotion of this resort. As a Marriott Elite Rewards member, this resort does not meet the level 5 rating as advertised. The “adult only” side is a much smaller property with a small pool and lackluster amenities. There is nothing “adult” about it OR the adult side of the “private island.” The family side features much larger rooms and actual ocean views, larger pool, entertainment, and access to the water. If you must stay at this property, stay on the family friendly side (when kids are in school). The rooms on the adult only side are small with no nice views. My “island view” looked like an alley and that was after changing rooms twice. Very basic room, no USB ports, no “luxury.” More 3 star than 5. Im not sure if there is a discount section for cheap Caribbean customers but this property and rooms do not live up the the hype. The staff was nice and the property was very clean , those were the positives. Let’s talk about the private island, a small, man made version of a “beach.” Very disappointing. Food service was extremely slow as there was one person serving an entire side of the island. There were 4-5 flamingoes who came out periodically, paraded around, and posed for photos lol. Cute, but very limited time to see them. I visit Aruba twice annually. This was my first and last time at this property. Stay on Palm Beach. There’s much more to do and nicer properties.

Renaissance Aruba Resort

The hotel is beautiful! You have to see the private flamingo island that’s free to guests at the hotel. The other beach that is outside the sister hotel is “ok” but being from Mass it just looked like regular blue water. It wasn’t crowded and there was enough room for everyone (I heard otherwise and why I mention this) Take a taxi to the other beaches off the beaten path (all rates are set by Aruba govt) so you know how much you will pay for the taxi ride. The restaurants around the hotel are more expensive of course and the stores are too so that’s why I say venture out! I took a taxi and a bus. I did tell the front desk 3 times the phone in my room didn’t work but they never fixed it but they did set me up with great tours and looked for the best deals for me! So the phone not working didn’t really bother me...Must do the pondereoza horseback riding tour! So worth the money and cheap Caribbean made this all possible! Legit site!

The Trip of a Lifetime!

The Renaissance Aruba is a stunning place with views of the ocean. It is conveniently located in the heart of Oranjestad, with super easy access to just about everything. We loved we could park our car each night an then hop the hotel shuttle to head across to plenty of dining and entertainment options. The staff was wonderful and helpful and we loved our room. The bed might seriously have been the most comfortable we’ve ever slept on. Loved the Renaissance!

A view for the ages!

What's to Love

The private island has separate beaches for families and adults and some of the softest sands. Plus, on one side you can feed the tourist-friendly Flamingos.
 

What We'd Change

It's a short ferry ride to the resort's private island, but it's so worth it. You'll get to lounge in peaceful tranquilty with jaw dropping views.

This Renaissance Hotel offers all the luxuries of a major metropolis while providing guests a unique, ultra-island escape just 15 minutes from shore.

Hotel Description

Renaissance Aruba Resort Presents Your Own Private Island

Looking for an oasis that's no mirage? Search no further than Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino, in downtown Oranjestad. Featuring two distinct resorts in one, Renaissance Marina for adult-only and Renaissance Ocean Suites for families, this resort offers tropical getaways for all. Relax in a lounge chair while the little ones snorkel the sandy fringes of Renaissance Ocean Suites' lagoon-style pool, or hop aboard for the 15-minute boat ride to Renaissance Island, where you'll find the only private beaches in Aruba.

This private island offers two options: Iguana Beach for families and Flamingo Beach exclusively for adults. Sneak off with your partner to enjoy a couple's massage at the private Spa Cove, or recruit the kids to bury dad in sand before challenging everyone to explore the wonders of the deep with snorkel and fins. From scuba diving and kayaking, to sailing and deep-sea fishing, Renaissance Aruba offers something for everyone. When the time comes to wash off the salt, take a dip in the Ocean Suites' lagoon-style pool, and float over to Sole's swim-up bar to share a pint with your sweetie.

Renaissance Aruba offers Patamingo Kid's Club with day and evening sessions, as well as extensive babysitting services, leaving you free to spend your afternoon hours on the only 18-hole golf course on the island, relaxing in one of Okeanos Spa and Fitness Center's steam baths or playing the slot machines at the nearby 24-hour Seaport Casino. When the sun dips beneath that endless horizon, it's time to indulge your taste buds with the flavors of the islands. Aquarius offers international fare, including steak, shrimp and burgers. And with numerous other dining choices, even the pickiest eaters will find a dish they like.

This hotel is NOT all-inclusive. Food and drink must be purchased separately.
