What We Love

  • The resort is on an amazing, secluded stretch of Palm Beach. The swaying palm trees and white sands make a great place to hang out for the day.

Things to Know

  • The resort offers amazing dining, like the sushi bar, just a few steps from the sand of one of Aruba's most spectacular and private beaches.
Give yourself a pick-me-up at this AAA Four-Diamond award-winning resort on legendary Palm Beach in Aruba. Offering legendary service, the island's most spacious rooms and a spectacular pool, this Caribbean playground will have you revved up in no time at all.

The resort has a lagoon-style pool with a rock-grotto waterfall that frames the ultra-convenient swim-up bar. If you're hankerin' for a bit more peace and quiet, make your way to the back of the waterfall to a nine-person, free-form spa tub, or at the H2Oasis adults-only pool.

Less than 10 minutes from the resort, the Tierra Del Sol Golf & Country Club lures fans of the game with an 18-hole golf course designed by renowned golf architect, Robert Trent Jones, II. The Tierra Del Sol course offers jaw-dropping ocean views backed by a rocky ledge of volcanic black rock. Don't worry about the kids while you're following that little white ball, the resort offers a terrific array of kids activities. So after the game, extend your playtime and let the talented attendants at the Balinese-style Mandara Spa get you ready for a night of fun with Lady Luck at the 24-hour casino. Stellaris Casino is not only the island's largest casino, but it offers a Vegas-style ambiance and plenty of non-stop action.

When all is said and done, saunter back to your Premium Ocean View and mull over all the possibilities waiting for you tomorrow. Then slide into sweet dreams in one of the largest rooms on the island.

    Stay away

    I was not able to check in until 5 (hour after check-in) even though I was here at 3:45. My room was not ready. I did not get a welcome package or welcome drink. I had to approach the desk twice to check on my room. When it was ready I was handed and key with no explanation of the amenities or anything. I am a Marriott member but would not recommend this hotel. I would gladly pay extra to stay at another location. For the prices of the room and food I would expect better customer service. Thankfully this is a short trip because this is day one and I’m ready to go home.

    Always the BEST experience at the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino! I will never stay anywhere else.

    This was my third visit to Aruba with my boyfriend and it was my parents' 15th visit in 20 years! My daughter and her boyfriend also joined us for 4 days. Everything was absolutely exceptional at the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino! We went in 2021 and again in 2022 but we were unable to go in 2023 because my mom was diagnosed with lung cancer in March of 2023 and that was the worst summer of our lives. Since my parents have been going to Aruba for over 20 years, they have come to know so many of the staff from their visits and through social media and they have followed our lives (including my mom’s cancer journey) and we have followed theirs, so this trip was extra special for us. We couldn’t wait to see and hug “our people”. Beverly Morris (Front Desk Team) sent a complimentary bottle of Prosecco in a bucket of ice and a beautiful and delicious fruit platter to both of our rooms. Beverly is so helpful and accommodating and quite honestly, very special to us. Some people just feel like family and she is at the top of that list. Ludwig Croes (Marketing Executive Guest Services) is also at the top of that list. He welcomed all of us with his friendly smile and a great big hug! If anyone would like dining or tour recommendations or to learn more about the vacation club, please see Ludwig at the Guest Services desk - he's the best and will literally help you with anything that you need. We ate breakfast at Mercat every day so thank you to the best servers - Liza, Agustine, Pope Francis and Patricia! We were so sad to hear of Alexis’s sudden passing just a few months ago. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family. We will miss seeing his beautiful smile and bright personality but we will never forget him. Rest in Peace sweet man. The best bartenders, servers, management, entertainment, etc. at the pool and beach bars - Giovanni Tromp, Jason Tromp, Adrian Silva, Blanca Martinez, Ebrahiem (Brian) Salie, Jonathan, and Lilian Tovar! These people have a special place in our hearts. Jason brought us to tears with his kind, heartfelt words on our last day. We just love him. We love ALL of them. And the drinks, OFF THE CHARTS! We also ate lunch there every single day and the food that comes out of that kitchen is perfection! The hummus platter with roasted chick peas, cheeseburgers, lobster roll, shrimp lettuce wraps, etc. Outrageously delicious! Towel Hut staff Henel Brice and John Polo never forgot about setting up our (many) chairs and extra towels bright and early every morning in our favorite spot right in front of the beach bar! Amazing customer service! I was shocked that Henel remembered us from prior years and also knew my mom had been sick even though we aren’t connected on social media. Very kind man. Also, how did you know Henel? LOL Shout out to the housekeeping staff who cleaned our room every day between 10 AM and 2 PM (per our request) and also provided turndown service every night with chocolates! I have to admit, this was a very nice touch! Taxi Cab Driver Michael Johnson (awesome)! On our last visit in 2022, Michael took us to the airport on our last day after we took his number one night after dinner when he drove us back to our hotel. This year, we just happened to get him on our ride home from Barefoot! I remembered him immediately and joked with him when he didn’t remember us. LOL! We took his phone number (again) since we didn’t go last summer so we can use him next year for all of our transportation needs. Restaurants this year: Yemanja, Quinta del Carmen, Madame Janette, Wilhelmina, Papiamento, Ocean Z, Barefoot, Oak, and Atardi. All amazing! Loved the addition of Ocean Z, Oak and Atardi this year. All impeccable service and food! Shout out to Mauricio at Atardi for one of the best meal experiences during our stay. We ate there our last night and just WOW! The food was amazing, the service, the setting, presentation, friendliness – looking forward to eating there every single year now. Everyone treats you like family! I have visited many islands before - Turks & Caicos, Cancun, Jamaica (twice), Punta Cana and I can tell you NOTHING compares to the people in Aruba, specifically at the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino! I cannot wait to book our trip for next year! We literally miss these people like family. They have our hearts. And Aruba has our hearts forever!

    Memorable and Unforgettable Stay at the Tradewinds

    My wife and I stayed at the Tradewinds Club level of the resort. A great and memorable experience. We had access to the club lounge, adult pool, and beach area with comfortable lounge chairs and palapa . Food in the lounge was complementary for breakfast, lunch, and dinner ( not huge portions for dinner though). A great hotel to stay in. We loved the amenities, lounge, pool, and beach. The Tradewinds have their own floor so non-Tradewinds guests cannot access the floor. The staff was great, provided a high level of service, friendly, and on top of any issues that come up. View of ocean and pool were beautiful. We also frequented the lobby bar, casino, gift shop, and Starbucks. The food, drinks, and entertainment were awesome. We had a sunset dinner at Alterda and the experience was amazing. Thank you to beach staff including Moises, Enrique, and Sylvie. Lounge staff including Nik, Zyron (and so many others I can’t remember everyone’s name at the moment). And the housekeeping staff including the evening attendant who completed turn down service ( I am sorry I can’t remember her name but she was great). Just an overall beautiful stay and my wife and I can’t thank the staff enough for everything that was done to make our stay memorable.

    Tradewinds is wonderful!! My happy place for sure.

    This was the second time we stayed at the Aruba Marriott. We are titanium, and this is one of our very favorite resorts. My happy place to go to in my mind is on the beach under the palapa. Amazing! The beach is calm, the location is beautiful, and the resort is quiet at night. We added the Tradewinds package this time. The food was outstanding. We had gourmet food every meal that we ate there. It was so very convenient to eat without going to a restaurant each meal. This allowed for more time to enjoy the outstanding property. Do yourself a favor and stay here. I tell everyone I know about this property, and advise them to visit themselves.

    So glad my reservation was refundable

    Bad guest service, rooms smelled like weird cleaner, but the thing that really makes this hotel unbearable is the the beyond awful DJ that plays from 3-5 daily. He manages to find the worst songs from the 70s, 80s, and 90s and plays all of them so loudly the noise cannot be escaped on any part of the property. My husband and I had planned to stay 3 nights, but the bad attitude of the hotel staff, watered down drinks and that terrible DJ were too much to bear for even one day. We left and moved over to the Ritz Carlton right next door for the remainder of our trip.
