Get ready to experience beautiful pink flamingos, exotic fish, large iguanas, sea urchins and pelicans! This private island is a great escape and greate amenity that the renaissance hotel has to offer. Beware of the nature walk though- you will get attacked by mosiquitos!!!!! I reccomend renting a float (5$) and spending the day floating at the flamingo beach side!... More

Went on a couples trip at the beginning of June. The weather was perfect, this wind really keeps you cool. The island has two sides a family friendly (best beach) and the adults only side. In the adults only you get to feed the flamingos and enjoy peace and quite, the beach is smaller but still very nice. The family... More

I surprised my wife on our honeymoon with a Caribbean Morning package in the Spa Cove. Two hours in the cove completely to ourselves including a 50 minute Swedish massage for the two of us. This was easily the most relaxed we have ever felt in our lives. It is a little pricey, but hey, you can't do this just... More

The island is great!! There were two places to catch the boat for the island which we tried both. The one in the lobby of the port Renaissance was great and reminded me of Venice a bit! The island itself had a great set up, we loved the Flamingo Beach because it was adults only and had real flamingos which... More

It's a great place for a mellow beach day. This isn't a place for water sports or good snorkeling, but it's super relaxing. There are iguanas on the family side and flamingos on the adult side. Lots of pelicans around, too. BRING MOSQUITO REPELLANT!

I went on a holiday to Aruba with my boyfriend and we read about Renaissance island being one of the main attractions. We were really disappointed and we felt like we wasted our money: once on the island we were told that that day snorkelling or kayaking or any activity was not possible (no explanation given, I suppose because it...

This is free for the guests of the Renaissance Hotel. We went on a half-price freebie so did not pay the expensive cost of visitors. Tickets are required. Collection is by motor launch from the centre of the Renaissance shopping mall. It gently manoeuvres through the mall and then speeds out to sea and the island which only takes about... More

My husband and I visited the Island on our recent honeymoon. We had an awesome day. From the minute the boat picked up in the lobby of the hotel , we were off to have an amazing day. My favorite part were the beautiful pink flamingos that roam the adults only beach. The wildlife is everywhere on the Island. It... More

We walked a short bit from the hotel and picked up the boat at the dock. A fun 7-10 minute boat ride that the kids loved later and we were docked on the island. To the right are the flamingos (which the kids loved to see) with adult only beach and to the left is the family beach and papagayo... More
