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.

    Awful experience at Rennaisance Wind Creek

    Beautiful place, awful experience. The security here is ruthless and nitpicks at every little thing you do making the experience an awful one. The hotel rules makes no logical sense and isn’t practical. There is no designated smoke area and if you happen to smoke and they see you they’ll say something to you. Most of the security staff are unpleasant and rude to guests. If you’re in the hot tub as a family and happen to have someone under 14 with you, they make you leave the hot tub. If you’re in the pool grabbing a drink at the bar and happens to have your kid with you, it’s a problem for security. Security comes to you so many times in a day, you start to feel like they’re not only stalking you but harassing you. If one particular security singles you out and keeps coming to you for the most ridiculous things to complain about and you take it up with hotel management, they do nothing about it. At the front desk they tell you all you need to go to the island is your wrist band, only to show up and you and your 2 year old are getting carded. So basically the 2 year old has to provide a room key. This hotel is poorly managed and the rules are designed to piss anyone off. I will not recommend this hotel because f the awful experience I had. The amount of money and hassle it took to get here and to have this experience wasn’t worth it. The prices here are extremely expensive and even though the island has its own currency, everything is priced in US dollars. It’s feels like a blatant rip off. With the experience I had I certainly would not recommend this hotel.

    Renaissance Marina Hotel

    We had an excellent stay at the Renaissance Marina hotel (adults only). The room was on the smaller side but very clean and well maintained. The best part was the private island and seeing the flamingos! Friendly staff and nice pool area in both the ocean suites hotel and the marina hotel!

    Flamingo Beach

    Our stay at the Renaissance Marina exceeded our expectations. The staff at the resort as well at Flamingo Beach were all courteous and attentive to our needs. We had the pleasure of having Jennifer as our waitress for back to back days on Flamingo Beach. Her services were top notch, as she was friendly and knowledgeable in regards to the delicious food and drink options.
