This place is absolutely GORGEOUS. We didn't go to the private island until our last day because I made my husbaand drive me around to help animals the whole time. OMG, being with the flamingos was magical. My husbnand was trying to take a picture of a plane flying over head and went into the nature trail and came out... More

Cons -- RIGHT next to the airport, which means it's super noisy. Adult beach has flamingo poop which attracts a plethora of flies. Service on the beach is slowwwww as molasses. Pros -- Free if you are staying at the Renaissance Hotels on the island.

What a fantastic Island, We were staying in the Renaissance Ocean Suits, so it was brilliant to be able to go on the Island (None resident can visit for a fee) The flamencos were so tame they ate the seed out of your hand, and walking amongst the people, with all sort of wildlife, iguanas, colorful birds, fish. Be AWARE... More

This is a wonderful, laid-back island accessible by boat from the Renaissance peer. One beach has flamingos wading in the shallow waters. A restaurant is available for lunch and dinner. Snorkel gear and kayak rentals are available. Lots of umbrellas for great shade...and fabulous water. It's clear aqua all the way out to the reef. We spent a lot of... More

Aruba never seems to fail me. This would be the second time I vacation here for my birthday and it has been a blast. From nightclubs to happy hour at the Renaissance to live DJ's at the pool I could not have chosen a better place to celebrate my 25th birthday. During my stay we met many lovely staff members...

The island is about a 5 minute boat ride away from the Renaissance resort, where the boats depart every 10-15 minutes or so. It has two beaches and some other amenities. The beaches are set up as lagoons, where there is a rock wall the surrounds the swimming area and separates the swimming area from the open ocean; though there... More

The private island for the Marriott Renaissance Hotel guests is very beautiful. Its has two sections; Kid and Adults. There are pink Flamingos walking the island; which is pretty cool. You can do a google map view of the island. You access is via a 5mn boat from any of the two Renaissance Hotels. Just be AWARE of the Mosquitos... More

The private island for the Marriott Renaissance Hotel's is very beautiful. One of their best features is that they have a family friendly side and an adult side. My son enjoyed every minute on the island. The private island is not the place to go if you are afraid of the iguana's. Here, they will come right up to you... More
