Hello,

Try e-mailing sales@arubarenaissance.com. We were also interested in the price of the all inclusive & received the info within a couple of days ...We decided it was a bit to pricey (as expected) but I can't remember the exact price...I don't have the pricing with me a the moment but I'll be glad to post it (if needed) - Just let me know ....

Have fun...We'll be there is just another 16 days ....

We stayed at the Renaissance in May. The Ocean Suites pool bar also has a happy hour, 2 for 1 from 4:30 to 6 daily.

Hello, will get that info from work tomorrow. We ended up going with the dine around program with the AUA - 5 breakfasts or lunches & 4 dinners for $214.00 per person - we invested in the aruba plus card ($10.00) and saved an additional 10% ......we think its a pretty go deal..... 15 more days to go.....

My wife and I just made reservations for the last week in November. I was going to lose a week from a timeshare and picked the Renaissance as my only sunny-option.

Any advice would be appreciated. The reviews are all over the map! If you could choose where your room would be, for example, where would you do so?

I didn't realize the flights would be so lousy. Any advice?

When I read "adult" side of the private island, does that mean topless or nude or just no kids? We want to relax and have fun, and not necessarily in that order! So, your candid comments are appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi Tom,

We stayed in the Ocean Suites timeshare in mid May. Our room was on the third floor with an ocean view where we also had a pool view. It was our first time to Aruba and we enjoyed being downtown. The private island was definitely the best part of our stay. It is beautiful. We stayed on the adult side and there were quite a few topless sunbathers. The family side has a softer beach (the adult side can be rocky when walking into the water so bring water shoes). We rented a Harley for the day and went on a guided tour. We also rented a car for the day and explored the island. I hope this helped and if you have any more questions, let me know!

Also, about the flights, we flew Delta from Detroit Metro. There was a connection in Atlanta but we were in Aruba at 1:30 pm and departed about 3:00 pm. I believe the r.t. was $520 pp.

I did alot of reading on this forum and learned alot before going. My opinion is this: Our favorite dinner was at Flying Fishbones. It was about a $15 taxi ride each way. If you are renting a car for the day, make reservations for that day so you don't have to pay the taxi. I made reservations about 3 weeks online before arriving. We had a front row table and the water was under the table but not quite to our feet. It was wonderful and the food was fabulous!!!! We also enjoyed LG Smith Steakhouse in the Marina hotel across the street. We never made it to El Gaucho but enjoyed LG very much. We did the Tattoo party cruise and wish we would have done the Kokoo Kunuku instead. Also did an evening catamaran cruise with Red Sail (book upon arrival, they fill up quickly) which was very nice. Bring your own snorkel gear because it is $10 a day to rent (they rent on the private island) and my husband snorkeled at the private island every day. After day 2, we bought him some gear there which was pricey so take some if you plan on snorkeling alot. There is a rock barrier on both the adult and family side that have a lot of fish to see. We rented a car and went to Baby Beach which was beautiful but my husband said the snorkeling at the private island was just as good. The island was the highlight of the stay. You can go any time of day and there was always plenty of shade and chairs. We usually got there around 11 am and stayed until about 4. We bought a case of beer in town and packed it with ice to take to the island with us in a collapsible cooler in our beach bag. There is a bar and restaurant on the island but our first day we bought 4 Balashi's and it was $29. Yikes. Take a collapsible cooler and pack water, drinks, snacks, etc. for the day if you want to save $$. The Ocean Suites happy hour at the pool bar is 4:30 to 6 daily, 2 for 1. If you haven’t toured the island, I would recommend it. We did a Harley guided tour and stopped at Charlie’s Bar for lunch. The food was great and it is definitely a unique place worth going to see. There are many different tours available depending on your interests. We are not into the club scene so can’t help you with that. Try a Blue Martini at the Blue Bar in the Marina Hotel. We also ate at Iguana Joe’s, Marandi, the bbq bash at the Black Hog Saloon (fun) and ate at the Italian restaurant across from the Marina Hotel (wonderful). We never had a problem getting a taxi. Where ever we were at, they would call one for us if there wasn’t one waiting. Being downtown we were able to do a lot of shopping and walking, stopping at the casino’s and bars for a drink. I think that sums most of it up. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I believe the original question was how much the all inclusive cost per person per day. We were just there June 23-30 and the little packet in our room said it was $130 dollars per person per day. They also had a separate breakfast option for $15 dollars a day and a breakfast & lunch package for $35 dollars a d

ay. Hope that helps.
