Excellent views from our huge balcony...all have Ocean view....Comfy bed...Newly re-done stylish decor...Great service and everyone friendly and helpful..Excellent breakfast buffet at La Vista for $25. Themed dinners nighty average price $39.. Casino was smaller but active, and met our needs,serving quality drinks at no cost. Bar area was comfortable . Wine and spirits also sold by the bottle in the gift shop. Very tasty chicken salad available at the lobby deli/bakery. All resort timeshares and luxury hotels with-in a short walk are all very nice and secure. Short cab ride to Super Food grocery, where US $ buy more. Use lowest denomination as you will be given florins in change. The hot tub outside was luke warm, but the pool was

After reading excellent review of the Marriott and having had previously positive experience with the company, I expected a clean and comfortable hotel stay. Unfortunately, my experience was nothing close to what I expected. To start the trip we were not given the rooms we requested - two rooms next to one another with two queen sized beds - but instead offered rooms on different floors with king sized beds. On the first day one of the rooms had major flooding in the bathroom. While that's understandable, what is not understandable is that it took 3 calls to the front desk and 30 minutes of waiting to have the problem addressed. When we asked to move rooms, the management proved to be unaccommodating and exceptionally rude. We had the displeasure of dealing with Jose who was the most disrespectful and abrasive representative I've encountered in many years of travel. While we did encounter some wonderful staff - including Harold at reception and several members at concierge - the general tone at the Marriott was unfriendly to say the least. The help and requests we required during our stay were minimal and reasonable: clean room during stay, address flooding in bathroom, be given a room that fit the guests in the room and unfortunately we were met with rudeness and a feeling of annoyance at every turn.

The hotel itself needs major upkeep and cleaning. While the grounds are wonderful and the waitstaff great, the general feel of the resort is one that needs updating and customer service training. The Marriott rates are not basement discount; one would expect a level of quality from the hotel that simply did not exist.

With other options on the Island, I look forward to returning to Aruba and staying somewhere else.

Room Tip: The beach in front of the hotel is ok as most beaches in Aruba are beautiful. However, the island ha...

Cyndy and I loved the Marriott Aruba Resort at the Alside/Revere Rewards trip this January! Thank you so much for all the wonderful meals, plus the service is second to none.

The beach and pool are very active so if you like a lot going on this is the place for you. Buckets of beer and water are available at the pool and beach bars so this cuts down on the wait for drinks a lot! I miss my Balashi Beer, which I cannot get back in the states!

We rented a jeep and spent several days off the resort too, which we highly recommend. We simply had a blast!

The room at the Marriott was very nice and spacious with a great balcony overlooking the pool and ocean. All in all, this was one of the nicest resorts we have been to in quite some time. Thanks again staff for making our stay memorable!

Room Tip: Reserve your palapa in advance to get one closer to the beach. Also, make sure you ask for a bucket...

Mediocre at best. Too far down the beach, rooms definitely need updating. The casino smell permeates the entire facility. Not enough shade/umbrellas at all. Service was terribly slow at all restaurants. People "save" poolside chairs ALL day only to come sit in them for moments and them leave.....the adult pool might as well have been the children's pool because that's how they all behave. Mattress was one of the worst I have ever slept on, and I travel a lot. Would definitely not come back. Stay at the Hyatt.....much nicer facility.

Stayed here in April 2010, so I apologize for the late review, but this was an excellent stay all around. Having never been to Aruba before, I was very impressed with everything here especially the food : ) the hotel was lovely, featuring very nice, clean rooms with excellent service. The casino is in hotel, so you need not travel at all to hit the slots or the tables. There are some very nice gift shops, as well as rental car facilities in the hotel. Overall, an excellent vacation, and an excellent hotel!

Room Tip: Try to get a ocean view, the pool area can get noisy.

We stayed on the 8th floor of the Tradewinds. The free cocktails, breakfast, lunch and dinner was amazing! Margaret was joyful and we loved listening to her sing. We would have liked more waiters on the beach for food and drink service. The spa at the Marriott, Mandara, was loud in my room because of a bar next door with techno music during my massage but they did give me a full refund. I would just make sure to request a room far away from the bar area and you'll be fine. All of my friends thoroughly enjoyed their massages.
We were there for a bachelorette party and hired Robert Arenz for a photographer. He was professional and the pictures were absolutely beautiful! He delivered them the next day with our CD and all of the proofs. This was my second time in Aruba. Overall, I would recommend the Marriott Stellaris.
