We stayed at the Renaissance for a week in April 2013 as part of an all inclusive package. The hotel had a different feel to it from other resorts given that the it is located downtown, Aruba. They have their own private beach which is a short 5 boat ride away. Nice place to relax.
We were quite happy with the food selection. There is a steakhouse, a seafood restaurant, a cool bar (Blue) and a lounge for midnight eating. Across the street at the other location, there is an outdoor eating area.
The room was spacious enough and the king size bed was a treat. The bathrooms were not spectacular but fine enough.
I'd recommend the hotel for a comfortable stay in Aruba. But not if you're looking for sheer luxury.
