The island has two private beaches, one for adults only. there are some 10 flamingos there which go eat off your hand. They also feed the Iguanas at noon and we saw much larger ones than on the main island. really worth while attraction. Pity you have to be a guest of the hotel!

Without a doubt, Renaissance Island is the reason we have returned to the Renaissance resort for 3 years. The hotel itself is nice but the beach is spectacular. The beach is divided into two sides - Iguana Beach is the family friendly side and has a restaurant ( one of the better food venues of the resort) as well as... More

Short boat ride from the hotel to the island. The island is beautiful and while we were there was not crowded at all. You could get chairs in any area you wanted at any time of the day. There is a bar, a restaurant, and a small shop on the island. Lots of iguanas and flamingos on the adult side.... More

Loved being able to feed and take pictures with pink flamingos. The bar/ restaurant is on the family side, if you're on the adult side it's a walk for drinks, but there are waiters that will bring them to you. Beautiful beaches. great place to spend a day.

This is the the most beautiful location in Aruba. This is the most relaxing location in all of Aruba. This is a little bit of paradise in a private island setting. The ambiance of this setting is unparalleled.

Private beach for Renaissance guest only. Plenty of hammocks, lounge chairs, flamingos, and iguanas!

This is the perfect place to spend the day while visiting Aruba. My wife said it is like being on Gilligan's Island. If you are going to Aruba, plan on spending the day here. My wife and I traveled to Aruba a few years ago and, while this was on the itinerary, we never made it to this site. I'm... More

You need to stay at the hotel to have access. It is not worth the $100 to go for the day. I love that you don't need to bring anything to the island. The food and drink are fine. I would like to have brought my own beers.

Not often that a hotel has its own, easily accessible, island. This was a super spot, with a nice bar/restaurant and cool swimming spots. The swimming areas are nicely protected from the surf and one is set for families and one for adults only. Check out the flamingos and the iguannas aplenty. Very cool.

This was an amazing stay! The staff was on point, courteous, and professional. Hubert, the front desk agent was very accomodating, especially with four kids under four years and a grand family of 12. Nelson, at the pool, treated us like family and was always in a positive mood. Also sanishta, was working so hard from the pool bar, to... More
