Excellent service and a great time for everyone. The entire experience was amazing and the bartender at the beach (Jhune) what the best!! I have to make sure that the hotel management knows just how great he was! I only issue is that trying to reach the hotel to verify my points were added to my Marriott Rewards Program could have been better. I'm still waiting to hear back from the and I emailed the hotel last Thursday. It is now Sunday.

Just wish everyone was on the same page with the rental of beach corerage. We were told different prices each time and the last day we decided to stay on the beach and pay for the palapals. We were told by the front desk tht there was a $50 deal that if you spent $40 on food and beverage that you got the palapals for $10 dolors and the food covered the balance. Had we known this early in our trip we would have done this every day instead of getting up early to try and get umbrellas at the pool.

Beautiful beach and resort layout. The only thing that I was not happy with were the Concierge at the Hotel. I do not think they were affiliated with the hotel directly and gave poor directions for people who ahve never been there before. After an hour of dirving to find a restaruant they reccomended and starred on a really small map, when we returned to the hotel the next person provided us with a very detailed map specifically for that resaruant. Then in the morning when we asked for a resturant by name for breakfast, they told us where it was and we drove all the way to find out they do not servce breakfast and were not open. They probably should have been able to tell us that. Outside of that everything was great.

I would probably book myself through Marriott. I was thinking their would be a apple representative and there were none on the property. Mother transfers took too long - 1 hour. So we took a taxi back to airport that took only 20 minutes and 20 dollars.

This was a very special trip for myself and two of my friends. Sadly, one is battling terminal cancer so we decided a girl's trip was much needed! We are from New England and after a long winter, Aruba sounded perfect. Sun, beautiful water, gambling and a direct flight won us over. We were greeted pleasantly when we arrived at the hotel and our room was ready so we were able to get settled in quickly. Our room was clean and bright. A nice balcony overlooking the pool and with an ocean view was a great place to enjoy our morning coffees and chat with each other. We had one minor issue with our toilet but Richard promptly fixed it for us. We visited Waves first for some cold beers where we had the pleasure of meeting Mergy and Aimee! They were both sweet and super welcoming! The people in Aruba are by far some of the best I have ever met...but I will mention the standouts throughout my review. Waves had cold beer and good food. Things are pricey in Aruba but we expected that. We love to play slot machines so having the Stellaris Casino downstairs was a huge bonus for us and one of the reasons we selected the hotel. We did not win any major money but really had fun winning a few bucks to play with. More than that, we loved the people working in the casino!! Major shout out to Nilson. He was so great to talk to and took such great care of us. His coworkers Danny and Roland were awesome as well. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet each morning...great selection and absolutely delicious. It's expensive so it was nice we chose to include it when we purchased our trip. Here we met Pope Francis who was very special, I highly recommend asking for the pope when you visit La Vista! Carmen is also an exceptional server and had us smiling. You can eat breakfast outside and listen to the ocean as you sip a mimosa. Overall we loved our stay. We decided to stay one extra night since this trip was so important to us. Jet Blue was amazing at accommodating our change...but Glen at the Marriot could have been a little more flexible with helping us out. The room price jumped for the extra night and we could have gone to another hotel but did not want to waste precious time. Again, fantastic trip overall and would highly recommend Aruba and the Marriot to anyone.

I was fairly content with the cleanliness at the Aruba Marriott. We checked in at the grand lobby and were met with welcome drinks. The Marriott staff was very friendly and answered our questions as needed. I requested for double beds and our room was comfortable enough to accommodate 3-4ppl. The beds were firm, the pillows were plush and the linen was clean (at least my room). The hotel and pool grounds were well maintained. However, the sand area leading out to the beach could use a little more work. I guess because the beach is public so the hotel isn’t really responsible? I don’t know, but there were sometimes cups or straws lying around and garbage cans were not as accessible. The beach is beautiful, but there’s a lot of sediment and rocks in the sand that can hurt your feet if you’re not careful while walking. I found the beach down by the Barcelo to be more fine and clear. Regardless, you can walk the entire beach strip and park down wherever you desire. The hotel has a 2 story gym which is very clean and they provide bottles of water and fruits. The hotel should also provide at least 2 complimentary bottles of water in the room which they don’t. There’s a Starbucks in the lobby so that’s a plus for coffee drinkers. Also loved the gelato stand. I didn’t eat at any of the restaurants at the hotel. It seemed very pricey for what it’s worth. If you’re renting a car, the hotel has free parking. And if you do have a car, there are plenty of restaurants to eat that’s within a short drive from the hotel.

Can I rate it higher than Excellent??

As a world traveler both for business and leisure, there is now no other place I would choose to go before Aruba. And if I'm going to Aruba, I'm going back to the Marriott Resort. For starters - you're surrounded by other Marriott properties, so if you have any island/beach concerns from experiences in places like Jamaica or Barbados, it's a non-issue here. The resort has 3 great restaurants: Atardi (google search "best restaurants in Aruba), Ruth's Chris, and La Vista, and then also the Lobby bar, which really does have decent Sushi. Walk next door and you have a great American-like Sports bar, or go the other direction and find another Steakhouse, both on Marriott property. If you don't mind walking 3/4 of a mile, you can get to many, many other restaurants, the Hard Rock, a piano bar, etc. The hotel even has a 24-hr casino and a Starbucks! If you are considering upgrading to the Tradewinds Club at the resort, stop considering and just do it. You can do the math if you want, or you can trust me that it's worth it. Rosalinda was running the Tradewinds Club lounge while we were there and she couldn't have been more nice and helpful. (To management: She's a superstar! But I bet you already know that). The young ladies working with her during our stay - I couldn't get their names because they were always busy and on the go keeping everything clean and orderly. They all did a great job! Lastly - Hermina! What can I say? If you go to the Tradewinds beach you'll be able to experience Hermina. She is full of smiles and personality, and... well.... I just wanted to take her back home with me. Hermina, Rosalinda, and the girls at the Tradewinds lounge really, truly helped make my wife's special birthday vacation special! If you're considering the Aruba Marriott Resort, I'm confident you'll love it (and I didn't even mention the H2Oasis or the swim-up pool bar!). I now know where I want to go for my big birthday next year!

This is a beautiful on a beautiful island. We are seniors visiting Aruba for the first time. We stayed in Room 742 in the North Tower which gave us a direct view of the ocean overlooking the family pool, beautiful in the evening when the whole area is lit up with multi-colored lights. The service at the front desk (Nick) and the consierge desk (Laura) and also the maintenance department (to quickly adjust our A/C) was both friendly and outstanding. We took a 3.5 hour tour on Palm Tours and that was well worth the expanse ($40/each), however, our best experience on the island was dining on the beach at Atadri right in front of the hotel. Our server, Rudolfo was wonderful and attentive. We dined at 7:15, just in time to watch a spectacular sunset while sitting only 10 feet from the ocean with our toes in the sand. We dined on blackened Mahi Mahi and Salmon and enjoyed a delicious bottle of Chardonnay. I can't say enough about this hotel. The property is a short walking distance from shopping areas for souvenir hunters and also some excellent casual beachfront eateries along Palm Beach. We are both athletic and committed "gym rats" and we were in the hotel fitness center every morning of our stay. The fitness center is on two floors with a wide variety of cardio and exercise machines as well as free weights. We spent a lot of time at both the adult swimming pool and the family pool in the daytime where they serve food and beverages and have happy hour drink specials every day. We also went to the hotel beachfront bar Waves several times (shout out to Brian the bartender) where I enjoyed the best burger ever (who knew) as well as their delicious chicken wings. If I could change anything I would make the fitness rooms a little cooler and the portions at Atardi a little larger but these are very minor considerations in light of the amenities and service in this beautiful hotel. When we return, and we will, we will stay at the Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino.
