Just returned from a 6 night stay at the Ocean Club. We had 2 adjoining rooms for a total of 2 bedrooms-plenty of space for our family of 5. The room was great, with two decks, and a full kitchen. We cooked quite a few meals onsite using the grills. The grounds were beautiful. The kids had a great time... More

Stayed for nine days right after spring break (thankfully). Very nice vacation spot. Used Marriott destination points for a two bedroom ocean view villa. Room at the end of the South tower, third floor with a great view of the pool and the ocean. There were four of us and never had a problem finding four lounges together at the... More

If you are going with family members it's perfect the set up is convenient and roomy the beach is amazing and was never crowded the only negative is the price of the palapas but you definitly need one I would recommend the ocean club over the surf club because of the crowds on the beach a lot of young families...

Not the place for the party group. This is a resort for "matures". Many guests "own" Marriott timeshares or points. Rooms are nice. Service is good for the most part. Bring your house deed if you plan to drink much at the pool bar - drinks are about $15 each. Happy hour is 2 for 1, but $7.50 still seems... More

We stayed here for our kids spring break 2015. This was a timeshare exchange. The resort is right on the beach. It is slightly dated as compared to the Marriott Surf Club right next door. The pool is very large as well as the hot tub/whirlpool area. The beach has nice soft sand and there are plenty of palapas to... More

The rules were you are not allowed to tag a chair earlier than 7 am. I woke up around 5 am my first day there and went... More

Just returned from a absolutely amazing trip! It was our first trip to Aruba and definitely will be returning ASAP! The Ocean Club was just what we would have wanted. Check-in was easy and we were greeted by friendly smiling faces. Had emailed to request a higher floor with a ocean view. They did what they could and we were... More

My wife and I have been going down to Aruba and the Ocean Club since 1998 it is our home away from home - the people in Aruba and at this resort make you feel like this - the rooms are very spacious, staff feels like they are part of your family, very close to downtown, and many restaurants

We have been owners since the Ocean Club open. Beautiful location. But the Marriott timeshare reservation system has never worked well and has been a constant frustration. My husband just checked in. He had a reservation for two rooms. One was an Ocean Front and one was an ocean view. Our reservation gave us the ocean front room and my... More
