A friend owns a timeshare here at the Ocean Club and we have been every year for the last 4 years. Our 5th year is coming up in Sept/Oct. We love it here. We come at the sametime every year and it's the best. Sept/Oct is when we choose to come as it is not crowded and the weather is perfect.
Rooms- Beautiful rooms with great views. You can request certain rooms or views but if is not a guarantee you will get it. We have only once had an issue with this an while it was not 100% solved it was made up to us. We have a 2 bedroom lockoff with a full kitchen. Very large dooms with great bathrooms and a large soak tub in the main bedroom. The kitchen comes with everything you need and we make full use of it.
Service- The Marriott never falls short on service. Friendly, outgoing always willing to help. If you have an issue they fix it as quickly as possible. They are full of information when asked, never pushy and always smiling. We love that we see most of the same staff every year and they remember you.
Resort- Beautiful inside and out. Pristine in appearance inside and out as well. Love all od the glass artwork. Bright colors, not gaudy at all. A little coffee shop inside with some breakfast items as well as sandwiches and a few snacks it also serves as an ice cream shop. You will also find a gift/convient type mart inside with gifts, sundries and little things you need or forgot 3 boutiques (one with a small but decent cigar section)a perfume shop and a jewelry store top off the shopping just at the Ocean club. There is a restaurant in the Ocean Club called Champions the food is not bad but not as good as some on the island. That being said its good for a burger or fish and chips. It's a very large sports bar so on game nights its full of screaming Americans. The spa is fantastic very relaxing and soothing.
Pool and beach- Nothing bad to say about either. The beaches are beautiful and clean with sparkling crystal clear waters. There is no tide really on this side of the island which makes it perfect for small children. The palapas must be reserved and the guys that set them up for you are great. People get really possessive of their spots but come on its Aruba every spot is good. The Ocean Club has one of the biggest sections of beach area so there is plenty of room. The one drawback that ticks me off is people who don't get a spot and just take chairs and pull them right up to the edge of the surf and sit blocking the way. The pools are great. Not crowded, plenty of room. There is a small quiet pool, one large pool and a small little baby pool As well as a fabulous whirlpool up a set of stairs that has great views.
We love The Ocean Club. It's a home away from home and we look forward to it every year.
