DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL - SHOCKINGLY BAD
Albundy_Robson, Wirral
Thu Jul 14 06:13:02 EDT 2016
We booked a last minute all inclusive stay through Thomson Holidays about 4 weeks from travelling at £5,600.00 (so not cheap). This was for me, my wife and two children (two and 10 months). We are only three days into our holiday but wanted to do a TA so that others do not get ripped off - this is a hotel under MAJOR construction works. Our trip didn't start well, after arriving in Aruba the transfer left us at the airport and failed to advise that our double pram and car seat would be randomly / strangely taken to the departures area outside of the arrival area. This was really difficult with a full trolley and two kids. We stayed in the Renaissance Ocean Suites, worth noting as the other Marina Hotel has the majority of free facilities and restaurants (and the one they use to advertise in the brochure). So day 2 starts (our first full day) and it is clear that the hotel is under major refurbishment and construction / demolition works (photos and videos to follow). The noise from the pneumatic drill was so loud we had to take the children to the room (where the noise could still be heard). The manager advised us that we best spend our time away from pool while works underway. I am seeing the Thomson Representative today and will do a full report when back in UK. Other negatives is that the all inclusive isn't a full all inclusive as many things are paid extras - mainly room service. Photos uploaded. More>

Wonderful Stay

Beautiful island, wonderful resort, perfect trip! We stayed in the Ocean Suites part of the resort due to the option of having a microwave and small fridge in the room. So glad we made that decision! We made the walk over to the Marina and it was not quite our speed.... The private island was the ENTIRE reason we booked the Renaissance and it DID NOT disappoint!! Beautiful island split between the "adult side" with flamingos and the "family" side that you could rent all the water sports. Just beautiful! We stayed the last week of June while they were replacing the flooring in the lobby. While we were disappointed, it was made as convenient as possible. Other than closing all but one elevator and not having access to the stairs, it wasn't too bad... It took us until later in the week to realize there was more restaurants on the "high rise" part of the island and that all the stores on that side stayed open much longer than the 6:30 closing time than all the downtown stores. We rented a car which made getting back and forth easier (and cheaper from what I've heard about the taxi fares!) We will be returning to Aruba and we will be staying at the Ocean Suites when we return! More>

Extraordinary Hotel & Location for Honeymoon
Fabrizio A,

We were looking for a location to spend our Honeymoon and after reading several reviews and comparing different places, we decided to go to Aruba & stay at the Renaissance. The experience was extraordinary, the hotel (with the adults only concept) was great, the staff made sure the experience was memorable and the room had a nice ocean view, always clean & neat. We LOVED the food in each one of the restaurants (including the pool one) as it was simply outstanding, high quality, fast service and friendly staff. Thumbs up on this one. We rent a car but realized that we could've managed renting only for a couple of days, so if you are looking for a relaxation trip and plan to spend most of the time enjoying the hotel amenities and walking around or at the mall, you don't need a car. If you plan to visit the lighthouse, chapel, other beaches, etc you can rent it for a couple of days and that will suffice. Definitely a place where we will go back!! Great if you are looking for a honeymoon stay or a nice romantic getaway. Fully recommended. More>

Very good

This is well placed hotel ,it is split into two buildings about 5 minutes walk apart and both are on the marina area.The one building is adult only except at meal times when the children can go in to the restaurant(can't have everything our own way) it's only 5 floors so it seems more personal than the bigger hotels.Nice pool wasn't busy when we were there .It also has the motorboat terminal for the ride to flamingo island and the boat pilots are very good and efficient. It has a happy hour 430pm till 6pm local time in the bar ,the staff are very good.it is also well placed for the local high st which directly behind the hotel via a very high end shopping centre which is attached to the hotel.great place to stay.

Great Hotel for Families or Couples
Margie R., Michigan
Wed Jul 13 19:05:16 EDT 2016
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Renaissance Ocean Suites (family side). We were with our daughter and family (including two teenagers). We all thoroughly enjoyed it. So happy we had to stay there as opposed to the Marina Hotel (adults only). The hotel itself is still undergoing beautiful renovations. But that should probably be completed in the next month. Rooms modern and clean. Only complaint is poor engineering on showers. Water leaks out so you have to mop up. Otherwise, quite comfortable. Pools very clean with plenty of chairs. No need to run out to reserve your lounge--unless you want a really special spot. Nice small beach area right there. But private island beaches are terrific. And, of course, loved the flamingos! And the boat ride is nice also. Restaurant on island very good. Service slow, but we were on vacation. So who cares! Service at hotel excellent. Entire staff was fantastic. Happy hours from 4:30-6:00 were great! Half price drinks. Bartenders super nice. Food around the pool was good and reasonable. Sunday buffet near pool area was good, but I don't think they were quite prepared for the amount of people that came. Cook- to-order meats was slow. Hotel very close to Marketplace for restaurants and small shops. And Seaport Casino is just steps away. All in all, we loved the Rennaissance! Would definitely stay there again. More>
