3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Let's face it, the Marriott name is pretty solid. Beautiful island and beach. Needs a few improvements to enhance resort. The sand in front of the surf club needs to be dredged, as years ago the entire pier took up more space than it does currently, hence it is not as smooth as in front of the Stellaris or Ocean...

This was our first time at this resort. We'd stayed at Ocean Club and the hotel before. I think this is my favorite. The decor is bright and tropical. The pool area and lazy river are lots of fun. There are multiple dining options. The beach area is very nice. The resort is a short walk from many restaurants on... More

If you are a big family, group or friends wanting to party, eat, drink, cook, frolic at the pools, swim in a small bay along side a dock with tour boats..etc. This is a great place. It's very crowed for low season at the pools and beach front on beach. Very noisy, no beach, at pool, loud music, too much... More

This place had it all! If you were a family or a couple there was plenty to do. With shops close by and lots of restaurants there was no need to rent a car. The staff was great and the place was very clean. We would go back anytime!

I had a week booked here for our final year of interval international mini trial timeshare (we would never enrol as it's far too rigid a programme and extremely difficult to book and a more expensive option for us overall). I was delighted that the booking system worked (long way to go and find you have no room) and that... More

We visited Aruba for the 11th year July 2-12. We went with my parents, husband, 7 year old daughter and 20 month old son. It is a very family friendly resort. If you like a more quiet, laid back resort, the surf club is not for you. That is why we go back every year. Fourth of July weekend was... More

Our first trip to Aruba and stay at Marriott's Surf Club. For fun in the sun, GIANT pool area, and right on the beach/ocean. What's better than that??!! Agree with the other reviews about it being VERY busy and full of families. Be prepared for a couple of things - pool side chair tags: 7am go reserve your lounge chairs... More

This is a good location for family gatherings, large pool, lazy river, close to town to walk to restaurants. Suites are nice w/ kitchenettes. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Not a quiet resort, this is more of a place where large families all go together.

I'm not going to fault Marriott for our room. We traded our week at the Maui Ocean Club and sadly went through Interval International. Ending up with three adults in the the smallest size room with no kitchen is probably my fault....for using Interval. Tried several times to upgrade our room prior to and at arrival...to no avail.
