Would I visit again? YES. Easily. Solo or with friends. Highlights? Flamingos, snorkeling and swimming, exotic fish, hammock under palm trees, small gym, restaurant, and other fun options. A great escape exclusive to Renaissance guests. Costs? Free and only for Renaissance hotel guests I believe. Staff services? Everything you will need help with, will be catered too> Plenty of staff... More

We booked a romantic sunset package on this island including the boat trip from Renaissance hotel, a 50 minutes open air Swedish massage, a bottle of champagne and fruit plate. The island itself with the flamingos and iguanas is already worth the price and the beach experience is not comparable to other places. It's a must in Aruba.

$85 well spent on this private island. Neat boat ride from the renaissance hotel to island. Loved feeding flamingos but take note this side of island you are allowed to go topless. Other side of island beautiful too. Food was fabulous. Loved the hammocks surrounding the water. So quiet and beautiful and serene. Definately worth paying the day ticket price.

We hung out at Flamingo Island, the all adult section. It was sooo beautiful and 6 gorgeous flamingoes were awaiting our arrival. There is a beach bar with snack food. The service with the waiter coming to your chairs was not great, but if you ordered at the bar, the service efficient. The down side is the island is parallel... More

The private island is incredible and justifies going to the Renaissance rather than a resort in Palm beach. The pink flamingos are amazing and the beach is very quite

The Renaissance island is the best spot in Aruba, and especially Flamingo beach, which is one of the best beaches i've ever seen (Iguana beach worths no more than 5 minutes)! Plane spotters and photographers can spot landing planes from the entrance dock, quite impressive! VERY IMPORTANT: Unless you're staying at one of the renaissance hotels in Aruba, the entrance...

The island was beautiful. Beaches gorgeous. Food was nice but annoying numerous flies in the restaurant. The pink flamingos were so beautiful but you get the impression there are flocks of them - there were 6! Also are we the only ones to notice the flamingos only had one wing each....? I founds this quite disturbing. Tourist attraction? At what... More

I am not a "beach person" but my husband is, so we scheduled an Aruba vacation! If all beaches were like the beach on Renaissance Island, I would be a "beach person!" It was incredibly beautiful!!! The sand was soft, there were plenty of comfortable lounge chairs available in both sunny & shaded areas and the water was refreshing and... More

you can go to this beach and when you do you will be able to go up to the flamingos that are standing in the shallow water there is food for you to buy and you can feed them great fun
