Since we were staying at the Renaissance ocean suites we wear eligible to go to this island. You need to be staying in one of the Renaissance properties to make this trip. The boat ride is about 20 minutes and requires your room key in order to get onto the boat. You don’t need to take beach towels from your... More

We did not stay at the hotel ; so we paid $100 each for the day. We considered it well worth it, as it included a lunch & any kind of drink . The lunch value was at least $50 and good variety & quality. The island trip starts inside the hotel & takes about 15 minutes. The island is... More

First of all, it is a beautiful island. The biggest problem for me was the NOISE. It is very close to the airport and the sound of the jet engines taking off was deafening. If you are going, it would be a good idea to wear ear plugs. I was holding my ears at time, but I am noise sensitive.... More

This is one of the reasons why we stay with the Renaissance Hotel in Oranjestaad Aruba,. One side of the island is for Families and the other is for Adults Only. Likewise, Renaissance Oceanside is where families stay, it's much more noisier, especially in the pool! We stay the Marina side, the pool there is Adult Exclusive, and hence, all... More

Guests at the Renaissance and those willing to pay for a day ticket, have access to the private island. The tender takes you from the lower lobby of the hotel, under the road and out to the island, One side is for families and is where the bar and restaurant are located. The other side is for adults and flamingos.... More

Renaissance Island is only for those guests staying at the Renaissance Hotel. The boat trip out to the island is part of the fun. The island has a family friendly side (which we always stay on with our children) and an adult exclusive side. The family friendly side has the restaurant and bar. The water is beautiful and clean.

We have stayed at the Renaissance Ocean Suites for the past 5 years. We go as a family and absolutely love Renaissance island, we take the boat over from the resort. It is a quick boat ride to and from this private island. There are two sides, adult and family sides, therefore it is great for our family because our... More

The best thing we did on our trip. We spent three afternoons on the beautiful beach. People watching was also fun. Service is a little slow but friendly

We stayed in the Renaissance Ocean suites and we're looking forward to visiting the private island. You can get the boat from the ocean suites side or the marina side of the hotel. It takes about 10 mins to get there on the boat. The island is really beautiful and great for taking lovely holiday photos. We went for the... More
