What We 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.

Things to Know

  • This resort offers all the luxuries of a major metropolis while providing guests a unique, ultra-island escape just 15 minutes from shore.
Looking for an oasis that's no mirage? Search no further than this resort in downtown Oranjestad. This resort offers tropical getaways for all. Relax in a lounge chair while the little ones snorkel the sandy fringes of the lagoon-style pool, or hop aboard for the 15-minute boat ride to 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, the resort 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.

This resort offers the 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.

    We stayed at your hotel for 10 days in February of 2020. We had a fabulous time. We were very impressed with your Front Desk employee named Erick. He I was very professional, friendly, and very helpful to my husband and myself. In addition, Erick went beyond we what we expected in helping make our trip even better. He is outstanding! In addition, a thank you to the waitress named Keiila in the Aquarius restaurant. Great service. Thank you. Ted and Sylvia S.

    Lovely property

    We stayed at Renaissance Ocean suites. The property was quite, relaxing and clean. We enjoyed the swim up pool bar, happy hour, on site restaurant and many other restaurants within easy walking distance. The island is perfect for snorkeling or enjoying a pizza on the beach. We rented a cabana which came with fresh fruit, champagne and snorkeling gear ( must book well in advance). You can also easily walk to town to shop. A car isn’t necessary. It’s only been a few months and we are already planning our next trip.

    friends who became family!

    There aren't enough words to describe how I feel about this hotel and staff. I am so grateful to be able to come here every three months & honestly wouldn't want to go anywhere else. Marriott should feel very lucky to have these gems working for them! My home away from home ; I can't wait to go back!
