I've been coming to this hotel every year since it opened (1999) because I love Marriotts, love the location, beach, pool, service etc. But this hotel is in dire need of updates. I just got back tonight from a weeks stay which I enjoyed myself but the updates that desperately need to be made are: new MATTRESSES (I was sleeping... More

]Very nice timeshare units with kitchen and bedrooms. Service above average for timeshare. Beach location perfect, nice pools. Not a party atmosphere (which was nice). You will have to find fine dining elsewhere.

We stayed here for a week in Sept. 2016. Beautiful property and people very friendly. Beach was the best I have seen (and we travel a lot). Temperature was great and a little breeze all the time so never felt hot. Neighboring Casino was small but fun Also. We ventured out for dinner every night and found some great places... More

Unlike the Mariott Surf Club next door, The Ocean Club is geared towards adults. Its quiet and peaceful. We had a great time at the pool bar. Its close to the beach. A beautiful beach. Ou room had a great kitchette. There was free laundry machines on each floor. The staff was very friendly and accomodating.

Step out of the airport, and take a short cab or bus ride to Heaven on Earth! The location makes everything on the island a short walk, or cab ride, away. You can use US $ everywhere/no need to exchange to Aruba Florens. The pool and grounds are impeccably maintained. The rooms are clean, spacious, beautifully decorated, and well-maintained. The...

I travel with a scooter as I have multiple disabilities. My scooter was too big for the elevator and no ground floor unit was available.

We have been coming to Aruba for 18 years and staying at Marriott, so needless to say, the Marriott is fantastic...love all the properties. The reason for my review is to let return visitors and new comers know that our favorite restaurant has been and still is Simply Fish...now called Atarde!
