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

  • The resort offers all the luxuries of a major metropolis while providing guests a unique, ultra-island escape just 15 minutes from shore.
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, this resort offers all-inclusive excitement and relaxation. With two distinct options (an adults-only or family-friendly resort), 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.

The resort 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. 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 this resort. The all-inclusive package makes it simple to try Blue's tapas menu, L.G. Smith's Steak & Chop House's signature dessert or 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, this resort has everything your island heart desires.

    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!

    Convenient place to stay - Private Island is a Must See

    The pros of staying at this hotel are renting a cabana on Renaissance Island (must do), feeding the flamingos on the island, rooms were very clean and updated (renovated), Starbuck's in the lobby, happy hour at the pool and in lobby (really good prices on drinks). The cons were that they allowed smoking at the pool (although the policy states no smoking except for small area near entrance to hotel) and that there's not many places to eat after 10:00 pm on the property and on Sunday’s the town closes down early. Obviously it’s not the best hotel for the view from the pool, but the trips to the private island are totally worth it. Would recommend 2 nights here before or after going to another part of the island (Palm Beach, for example).

    Beautiful Aruba!

    Made our first trip to Aruba with the family in early March, and stayed at the Marriott Ocean Suites. We were very happy with the property and staff, and the the location is ideal for shopping and many great restaurants within a short walk from the hotel. The icing on the cake was Renaissance’s Private Island which had great beach and cabana options, and of course the beautiful flamingos! We’ll definitely stay here again!
