If you are at the Renaissance Aurba Casino, you must go to the private island. The beauty there is amazing with the flamingos and spacious beach loungers and the blue waters, white sands and breeze. You are waited on to get beverages or food, with very friendly staff. Enjoyable for both families and people of all ages.

The Private Island really made our stay at the Renaissance worth it. You’ll find Flamingos around the adult only beach, as well as plenty of wild iguanas. The island is built up too – it’s not just a beach. There’s an open air restaurant and clean bathrooms. The beach is more of a lagoon, sheltered by rocks to break the... More

We stay at the hotel and always go to the island. It is a nice ride and very peaceful on the adult side. Only downside is the restaurant. Food is very blah.

This island is private firm Renaissance Hotel and resort and is the entry is allowed only for guests, there's a boat at the hotel which takes the guests to and from the island all day long. It's a must to the guests , for sure! I stayed at the hotel, and this was a very good program!!!

This was definitely one the best parts of staying at the Renaissance. You can easily hop on a boat close to hotel (they leave about every 15 min). The boat ride itself was a fun part of the experience (but you can get a little wet). The best thing is feeding the flamingos who casually hang out by the beach.... More

We are staying at the Renaissance Marina hotel & visited the private islands today. The island is a short boat ride from the hotel & has two sections - adults & family. There are iguanas lazing around in the sand & a handful of flamingoes! This is a must see if you're in Aruba!

It's a 10 minute boat ride to get to this island. Nice warm water from the sea. There's flamingos and iguanas here. Only Renaissance guest can come here for free, just show your room key card. This is one of the Perks staying at Renaissance. We met a local who lives here and they said it cost them $70 just... More

This was an amazing treat while staying in Aruba. The island is only accessible by staying at the Renaissance Hotel. A private boat takes you to the island where you can have tropical drinks and island snacks. The flamingo's are amazing. The beach is well kept and gorgeous. The island is directly in front of the airport, so the plane... More

We stayed at Renaissance and took a shuttle boat to visit the Island. What a really weird experience. On an where there are miles and miles of great sandy white open beaches, someone has actually build (what felt like) a fake caribbean beach? And to top it, due to currently on-going renovations, it's currently basically a construction site with (by... More
