This is a return visit for us to the Marriott Aruba Ocean Club. The property is beautiful and just the right size for guests who want to get away from it all. Both the pool and the beach are fantastic. The staff does a wonderful job of insuring the guests are well taken care of. We have one of the... More

Second time staying at Aruba Ocean Club handicapped accessible 1 BR villa. Wonderful staff at pool. Only problem is the unit is very tight to navigate with a collapsible wheelchair, especially getting into BR/whirlpool tub area from BR which needs more clearance to be really accessible. Otherwise really enjoyed our stay and all the wonderful dining choices in Noord &... More

I retired for the second and final time on 5/16/15 and left for Aruba the next day. We stayed at the Ocean Club and it was delightful. It is older and much smaller than the Surf Club which makes it very appealing to me. The month of May seems like a great time to be there as Spring Breaks are... More

We are owners of a Marriott Vacation Club property at the Grand Vista, Orlando, Florida. Since 2007, we have visited Aruba 6 times. All but 1, we've stayed at the Marriott Surf Club. This trip we decided to give the Ocean Club a try since I had read it was not as noisy, not as many children and catered to... More

When we first arrived at the hotel we were greeted with cold water bottles and smiling staff. The wait was not long for our room. Once we got to our room we were greeted with a bottle of champagne from the front desk (it was our anniversary). Maintenance had to fix the safe in the connecting room which was no... More

Nice Hotel, I am a Marriott timeshare owner and came here for the first time. We rented a car in the airport because I enjoy driving but its not a must. It can help to go to the supermarket which was excellent, it has almost everything you ll need. The hotel is really nice, but the beach is fantastic. It... More

It seems that the maintenance was put on a back burner while the Surf expansion was being built. Hals and carpes were dingy and threadbare. Light fixtures were out making the hals very dark and dangerous. The staff also didn't seem to know how to deliver flowers to a guest who was already in a room. When I arrived I... More

Recently stayed at the Marriott from 5/2/15 til 5/9/15. The resort is beautiful, clean and inviting. The staff was excellent in every way. The weather, although windy, was amazing. I would have easily given the resort 5 stars if it wasn't for the concierge desk run by DePalm tours. The bus tour of the island they recommended was a disaster.... More
