Heard so many good things about Aruba from friends we decided to try it by staying in a luxury hotel. The Marriott Resort was very clean and the staff was always polite. Food and drinks are on the expensive side but you expect that from a luxury hotel. We heard that there was some noise from the JW Marriott being built next door but we never heard anything. The excercise room is very well appointed with a good assortment of weight and cardio machines. We ate at the buffet one night at the hotel because it was raining and found the food to be very good. Casino had enough tables and machines for everyone.
