This is.the downtown hotel. It is right in the middle of everything. It is very nice, with super restaurants in and around it and all the shops. This is where to stay on business or for a few days of rest and shopping. From here you can go to the Private Island and enjoy all it has to offer: great!... More

Just returned from a week-long all inclusive stay at the Renaissance Ocean Suites, and it was a fantastic experience. I was a bit hesitant about the fact that it was not exclusively an all-inclusive hotel, as some of the previous reviewers had mentioned that this had lead to some confusion on the staffs' part. We didn't have any trouble at... More

We had a nice time at the Renaissance. It was centrally located and a great place for us for our first visit to Aruba. The rooms were clean, updated, and the perfect place to lay your head at night. Although the beaches are much nicer in Palm/Eagle Beach the Renaissance private Island was almost perfect. It was private, beautiful, and... More

This hotel has everything. It has a private island with the best snorkeling in Aruba (you do have to climb over the stone breakers, but it's worth it) and even inside the swimming area there is quite a variety of fish by the rocks. The swimming area is perfect for swimmers and they have kayaks, floats, snorkel equipment, good food,... More

My husband & I have been staying at this resort for the past 5 years and have stayed at many hotels throughout the years and are always so impressed with everyone at the Renaissance. The staff (especially Sujeiry affectionately known as Sugar) always remember us and always remember exactly what drinks we like, what food we eat etc. etc. This... More

We stayed at the Marina Hotel across the street from the Ocean Suites. As other reviewers have noted, the Marina Hotel lacks direct beach access. However, you can access the private island (which includes private beaches and more, see infra) by way of the private boat that regularly (~15 mins.) picks up guests and takes them on a 10 minute...

My husband and I stayed at the Marina side January 8 thru 14th and couldn't have been happier! We did get in late at night so we didn't have long lines at check in or have to wait for a room. Due to my husbands Marriott stays they did upgrade us to a room overlooking the pool and marina. The... More

This is a nice hotel just no beach access. You have to take a small boat that actually picks you up inside the hotel and takes you to this small private island. If you want a gorgeous white sand beach just outside the hotel, this is not it, but you do have access to lots of local food places and... More

Robert at check in was exceptional. Very welcoming and knowledgeable. The resort is downtown at the marina so the only beach is the man made lagoon on the property which is nice. But they do have a shuttle to the private island which is awesome! There is an adult only side and a family side. On the adult side you... More

While visiting friends in Aruba we stopped by for Sunday Happy Hour drinks at the Sole bar located poolside at the Renaissance Ocean Suites. While walking thru the lobby we heard the sound of a really cool band coming from the pool area. When we arrived at the bar we were amazed that this incredible sound was coming from a... More
