OK..this time I did not have a problem with the "room not ready routine" since I arrived at 9PM ! Check in was slow, as the girl had to keep "going to the office" because I qualify for the senior rate. Always stay at Mariott properties, but this place is always the exception from the norm. On the positives, rooms... More

I must say that this resort is one of the nicer I have been to on Aruba. The trips to the island are wonderful, within walking distance to downtown shopping and restaurants. Would certainly recommend this resort.

The bad news is that the construction was just very inconvenient to the guests and upper management should have closed the wing under construction. People go on vacation to have some R&R and with the hand drilling going on, it felt like they were drilling into my brain and had to shout so that my hubby could hear me. The... More

...There's a families side (Iguana) and an adults only side (Flamingo). Enough said. My fiancee and I loved the the "adults only" side. There's an excellent restaurant on the island and I had one of the best grouper sandwiches I've ever eaten there. There's a Starbucks on the ground level and that's where they pick up for the private island.... More

The Renaissance Suites are undergoing a facelift. The rooms are being redone but not very well done! The 1st, third and fifth floors (timeshare rooms)are being renovated but not in a good way! Such as: The bedroom has an open window to the kitchen and living room!!! There is not enough clothes storage in the bedroom! The NEW towels can... More

I was extraordinarily disappointed by our recent stay at the Renaissance Aruba Resort and Casino. The rooms are old and dated, the amenities are limited, and the mosquitos were terrible on the private island (I received 15 bites in about 30 minutes with no warnings from the staff about the conditions there.) Our television worked about 50% of the time,... More

I was in this hotel during August 2014 for a business trip and I found it wonderful. It is not a cheap hotel but here you are paying for the high quality of the services provided. The room and the toilet are very spacious. There is a comfortable bed and wonderful views if you are faced against the sea. They... More

The hotel has it all. My particular favourite is the private island. Being so close to the flamingos and other wildlife was just fabulous. Being able to safely float in the sea was so relaxing. The pool area has a really cool, relaxing vibe too. The rooms are really spacious, clean with good extras including Aveda toiletries. The hotel is... More

Our first time in Aruba and the Renaissance was recommended by friends. We stayed in the Ocean Suites because we needed room for 3 adults. We had two rooms for ½ the week (2 people each room) and then when our daughter returned home we shared the remaining ocean-view room. First the good, we had updated rooms on 4th floor... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The wonder of Renaissance Aruba isn’t just white sandy beaches, or crystal blue waters. The chance to discover something wonderful is all over the island, and we can show you the way. Our location in Oranjestad’s vibrant downtown gives you endless opportunities to indulge your inner shopaholic, get the thrill of a hand of poker in our two casinos, or take in Aruban culture from the beating heart of Aruba’s capital city. For an escape within an escape take a water taxi to Renaissance Island, Aruba’s only private beaches. Its pristine, secluded shores offer peace and solitude simply not found anywhere else in the world.We offer two hotels each with their own unique experience, but still allow you to enjoy the amenities of both. The Renaissance Marina Hotel was especially designed to be an intimate couples escape, and features a water launch to Renaissance Island from inside the hotel itself. Renaissance Ocean Suites is perfect for families so the littlest ones can discover the wonders of paradise for themselves. No matter where you go with Renaissance Aruba Resort and Casino we will be your guide to finding everything this happy island has to offer. ... more   less
