My husband and I just returned from our 2nd stay at the Renaissance Ocean Suites. Although the renovation was scheduled to be completed before we arrived, it appears it is a bit behind schedule. When we arrived we were placed in a room on the unrenovated side of the hotel, but we were in a renovated room. The first night... More

For my 30th birthday I wanted to go on a relaxing beach trip with my sister. Just lay in the sun, drink, swim, read, etc. This hotel let us do exactly that. We stayed at the Marina hotel which was really nice, (except for the cheesy house music the depressed looking DJ behind the bar played every evening). The beds... More

A week in Paradise! This was a third consecutive trip to the Renaissance Aruba and it won't be our last. We stayed at the Marina where all the rooms have been updated and refurnished. The steak house is fabulous from the quality of culinary delights to the incredible service. The private island was a great place to relax and away... More

It's 3am here in the hotel and I haven't slept because there's a rave going on outside. It's so loud that my walls are actually vibrating. There are flashing colored lights and terrible music overwhelming the entire side of the hotel. DO NOT STAY HERE if you're looking to sleep. I was supposed to be here for two nights on... More

Dear Holly, I regret to hear that you were not able to relax during your recent short stay at our Resort. Indeed, at times we do have festivities which creates a party like atmosphere which in general is enjoyed by majority of our guests. I do hope to welcome you back, maybe, for a longer stay so that you can... More

As many reviews have stated this hotel is on the city center and has no beach. So I would only recommend if you like this area. It does have the island but, unlike other reviewers I found it too crowded, one side if too sunny (almost no shades) and the other almost doesn't get sun, food and service are not... More

Stayed for a week at Ocean Suites. We were tired and looking for a place to relax, kind of enjoy doing "sweet nothing", but not an all-inclusive place. Renaissance Ocean suite was great for this purpose. Ours has just been fully renovated, everything nice and fresh. There is renovation still going on, but it is done smartly - by closing... More

We recently stayed at the renaissance marina in downtown aruba. The hotel itself is wonderful and the staff is great. The private island is AMAZING. The one and only issue I had with my stay was the location. No where in any review that I've read does it state that downtown is so boring after 8pm. If you are a... More

We recently spent a week at the Renaissance Ocean Suites. The hotel offers beautiful grounds, a private island, and a great waterfront location within easy walking distance of downtown Orangestad restaurants, shopping, and casinos. Rooms, however, are kind of strange. Furniture looks cheap with protruding wire legs on the tables which make tripping easy. Light switches are oddly placed. Air... More

We were having drinks during Happy Hour at the Renaissance Ocean Suites Sole Bar, and were pleasantly surprised to listen to great music performed by Ricky Thomas. It made our happy hour even happier! It was a beautiful setting, and the entertainment by Ricky Thomas is fun to listen to. We loved his choice of music and everyone enjoyed his... More

The hotel is located near the cruise ship terminal in the mall. It doesn’t sound nice, but it is. Go to the 2nd floor for the bar. It is an open bar area with an infinity pool overlooking the harbor. Try the blended Mojito. Mixed drinks cost around $7.50. One of the waitresses – Elizabeth Ludenas – is outstanding.
