“Fantastic Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

We recently spent five days at this resort. Our first time in Aruba and this Marriott property exceeded our expectations. Being long time Marriott members you are accustomed to a certain level of service and the staff at this property delivered at every level. From the valet, check in staff, security and service team we were treated exceptionally well.

We enjoyed the comedy show on site and dined oceanfront at the on site restaurant. Both very enjoyable. The beach is kept super clean and the staff greater us warmly at all times. Although others have suggested that pool chairs are difficult to obtain, we did not experience this at all.

Our excursions and dining reservations were handled by the concierge and did not disappoint.

Overall, I would highly recommend this property. My experience has been that you know what you get at Marriott properties. We have stayed at many Marriott properties from Maui, California, Boston, Florida and New York. This one rates at the very top.

We are already planning a trip back.

Dear JR716

I am so glad that you enjoyed the comedy show, we have trialed a few of these shows and they seem to be going well. Hopefully we will be bringing the comedians back later on this year. Thank you also for your comment on Simply Fish, as it is one of my favorite spots on the island. You really can’t beat dining with your toes in the sand. Thank you so much for your review and I look forward to welcoming you back to our resort soon.

Thank you to the front desk who all deserve a big raise!! Melinda, Maria, Davia, Julisea, Glenn, Beverly and others who gave us a beautiful upgraded room!! Also all the bellhops including out main man Roy! A big shout out to loss prevention who left my kids a huge surprise in our room, Edmar & Antiono...making us feel like family. Nicole in La Vista was there to help us book and special dinners there. Also at conceirge there was Raquel who always took care of us with SUPERIOR service!!! This is our 2nd time and def not our last!!! Thank you again to everyone who made us feel so welcome!!

Attended a wedding for relatives. The ceremony at the adult pool was fantastic from the app's to the drinks to the ambiance everything was romantic and perfect. The bartender at the inside hotel lobby bar was fantastic. It was world cup time and the hotel was celebrating all countries. Just a beautiful place to enjoy family and friends. The rooms overlooking the pool area were beautiful.

Room Tip: Enjoy beautiful...

Dear tophat411

The adult pool really is a great spot for a wedding, I am happy to hear that it was enjoyed by all. You mentioned the world cup celebrations we were having, and it really is fun to have so many different teams supported by our associates and guests. My team (England) didn’t do so well, but I know my German friends were happy. Thank you so much for your kind words and I will look forward to welcoming you back soon.

We stayed at the Marriott Hotel for a week in July. Several times during our stay the towels were not available at the pool. The pool food was very limited if you want to eat healthy. The beach was calm and very nice. The lobby looked recently redone but the guest rooms looked tired. The hotel is well priced for what you receive. If you stay here go out to eat. Like all resorts it is over price but the food quality is mediocre.

Room Tip: Higher floors are better.

Dear bparlin

Thank you for your review of our resort, we do appreciate the feedback. Matt, the Hotel Manager is away from the hotel today so he is not able to personally respond to your review as he usually does. You also mentioned some points where we need to work on, and this feedback will certainly help us. Once he is back he will go through your kind comments with the team.

Spent 10 days here on the Tradewinds floor. We didn't use the lounge for food but access to the lounge for water, soft drinks and beers was very nice and convenient. The staff in the lounge do a great job at welcoming you from the moment you arrive. I would highly recommend the Tradewinds floor as it's also Adult only which can be a peaceful escape. The Tradewinds Beach area is also well set, especially if you love the beach as much as we do! The only drawback is that you need to be there ridiculously early to get a front row palapa. We arrived at 8am on our last day and only managed the second row from the front. Same story around the adult pool, we saw people putting towels out as early as 7am and then not using the sunbeds until 10am!

Overall, a lovely stay and special thanks to Hermina for making the beach refreshing with cool towels and water at regular intervals!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 809. (Rooms 803,805,807,809,811 are all ocean view on the outside of the hotel, pr...
