We've spent time at both the Marriott Surf and Marriott Ocean and here is our comparison... Clientele - Ocean attracts an older demographic. Think people of teenagers instead of two year olds. It makes for a more mellow atmosphere while Surf is full of families. We saw four groups of 18+ people staying there for family reunions. Beach - Ocean... More

We've been to Aruba 3 times now, and the last 2 have been to this resort. We love this resort. There are 3 Marriotts here, all right next to each other. The Surf Club is the newest one. Everyone there is incredibly friendly...from the Marriott staff to the guests. They have a lazy river that is really popular and has... More

This is our 5th time staying at the Surf Club. We try to get back every year. We generally go in the fall and things are pretty quiet then. The place was hopping in August, but in a good way. There was a lot more going on. More kids' activities, the whole pool area was playing bingo instead of just... More

Have been coming to the Surf Club for years. This is my first review. The staff from the desk to the house keeping is excellent, you don't have a want. You call 0 and your wishes are fulfilled. There's more fun activities now with music and the special dinner nights at the pool bar. They have comedy night and Jason... More

Beautiful place, pricey but gorgeous. We booked late -- like a month ahead-- and my step daughter decided to go with us last minute. So we got a parking lot view. The grounds are lovely, great pools-- loved the lazy river. You do need to get up at 6am to reserve your chairs & reserve the tiki huts the day... More

This resort has alot to offer. Large swimming pools, water slide, beautiful beach with many tents set up for water activities such as tubing, jetskiing, parasailing. The rooms are spacious and the tower we stayed in was just renovated with a brand new kitchen and appliances. Jolly Pirates is right outside the resort which is a snorkeling boat that also... More

We own a timeshare at Divi Phoenix - very happy with it. This promotion was offered at the airport at a very attractive price. The place is ok. We're not thrilled with a high rise experience - doesn't really feel like you are connected with the ocean, sand, etc. Their beach was extremely crowded. Not sure what the criteria to... More

We had a nice room on a high floor centrally located to the resort with a beautiful view of the ocean. The good ends there. The bed was horrible! I believe we were sleeping on two box springs. The mattress was so bad. I will need to recuperate from sleeping on it for the last week. The beach front by... More

Spent a week at Marriott Surf Club in Aruba. As others have noted, the hotel is extremely clean and the staff very eager to please. It is also very much a family resort, with lots of parents and kids enjoying the beach and pool. My first visit to Aruba, so I was blown away by its beauty and perfect weather.... More
