I was told that the Renaissance Aruba Suites was the "family" side of the Renaissance Aruba Resort, but we wanted a suite, and were very happy there! We did notice a few children, but not a lot of screaming/crying/running, etc. that would make you sorry you picked that place, you know? This resort has a private Island, to make up for the small man-made beach at the Suites itself, you get on a boat, the trip takes about 15 minutes, there are watersports, a Spa, and Bar & Grille on the Island. The Suite side of the resort, which is across the street from the Hotel itself only has 1 restaurant, the Captain's Corner, which is typical Hotel dining, good food & service, just not spectacular. However the position of this hotel on the "Main Drag" in Oranjestad, means you are footsteps away from over a dozen restaurants, 2 casinos, a movie theater and a whole lot of shopping! The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, the Wi-Fi worked well & we loved being able to walk out of our sliding glass door onto our first floor patio, which leads to the pool with a Swim-up bar, of course! Our suite included a bedroom & bathroom, a small kitchen area, with 2 mini-fridges, a 3 burner cook-top, a microwave & coffee pot, and basic utensils & pots as well as plates & service for 4, the living room had a table for 4 & a fold-out couch, which we did not need to try. In the lobby, you will find a "Navigator" their version of a concierge, as well as a "Depalm Tour" advisor & Hertz Rent-A-Car on site. I'm really not sure what else we could have asked for, it was a Great Vacation!
