The hotel was clean. Your web site said there were activities at the pool and beach but there was not any. Your web site also said that you had a threatre with entertainment. Yes there was a threatre but it was closed and when we asked about it at the front desk, we were told that it has been closed for a long time. We told them that it was on the web site and the desk clerk said that it has not been updated in years. We were told that there was a lounge with entertainment near the casino and there was a three piece band starting after 11:00 pm that was really sad. All of your restraurants had the same food. The Captains Corner had birds flying everywhere and landing on the food, serving dishes and tables. They were also trying to eat from the buffet. There was no night life around or in your hotel and mall. Everything closed by 8:30 pm. There were no beach activities at the island and at the family hotel. The Steak Restraurant gave the all inclusive people different treatment and menus than the other guests. The best part of the hotel was the Blue Bar at the Marinia Hotel. Overall I would not suggest this hotel to my friends although it was clean, it was very boring.

The hotel atmosphere is stunning but a bit noisy you are on the Main Street. We were out of water for about 16 hrs but that was okay. We asked for a honeymoon package and got nothing. We had to beg the maid for bottled water in our room. The maid did not come to our room until 3-4 in the afternoon after our day was done. The food selection was not good at all. We ate at LG Smith Chop House three nights it was excellent food and service.

We had fun on our stay, the bar at the ocean view and marina hotels were great and the bar staff provided the best service of the whole stay, they remembered our names day after day and provided recommendations for things to do around the island. The food was ok, as I would expect with an all inclusive package; although I did have higher expectations of the steak and chop house. The decore and service was very good but with that I would have higher expectations of the food; my wife's fish was like from a package frozen and my steak was a little petite for my liking. We had an over all good time and enjoyed the island beach and the pool areas.

I was very surprised to find that our hotel was not on the beach. The pictures showed sand and trees, but there was no beach leading to the ocean. There was however, a boat that takes you to their island which was beautiful! Iwould stay there again!

I paid for ocean front room & got partial view. Traveling with two small kids, I was expecting two queen beds but got one king & very bad sofa bed!! As much as I paid, I expected better room. It was good but not excellent. But staff is excellent & goes out of their way to help you. Food was disappointing. We loved their private island . No nightly entertainment at all!! Kids activities are also not many. I have stayed in better hotels with more kid friendly activities etc. We loved the island, if we go back, I'll go to a different place.

The hotel is very nice, great bred, nice hotelroom and great location. I have stayed in both The Marina and Ocean Suites. This time around I went for breakfast down at the Ocean Suites and all the waitresses working there were all smiles and very helpful and friendly, eventhough they were busy. One of them stood out though, Liliana. All smiles and so very serviceminded! She was just so pleasant to be around and since we're from Scandinavia we're used to slightly stronger coffee...;) She was happy to help, nothing was a problem and the best thing was, when we came there the days after, she remembered and put a pot of fresh, strong coffee on our table. If I was her boss I would really take good care of her. Maybe she could teach her colleagues in the poolbar a thing or two about great service! It is a lovely hotel and being able to visit Renaissance Island is fantastic!

Renaissance has redeemed itself!

After a bad experience years ago, we avoided the Ocean Suites, staying at the Marina tower. With this stay, we're switching to the Ocean Suites from now on. Our upgrade at checkin wasn't available so lovely Cynthia gave us a $50 resort credit while we still enjoyed a large oceanview suite. It's quite nice having the extra room over what the Marina tower provides and the views are incomparable. The pool bar was lively with fun, friendly servers. Can't beat their happy hour! We didn't eat on site but did have daily lunches on the private island at Papagayo, always a delight, especially when served by Vanie or Maria, they are the ultimate in hospitality! Our room was quiet, housekeeping did a superb job keeping it neat and clean daily. Note to newbies... we ran into guests irate that their "island view" meant looking at the parking lot or city, not an island. DO be sure to verify your room type, know what you're paying for ahead of time to avoid unpleasant surprises at checkin. If you want a water view, it's a higher priced room but worth it, I say!

Shockingly horrible for a Marriott

I almost never give bad reviews, but I felt compelled to write one because the actual hotel is so different from the pictures on their website. The room was rundown and dirty. Also, the service is beyond sub-par, especially for a Marriott. While some staff, like housekeeping, were lovely, most of the others were downright rude and unhelpful. There are so many nice hotels in Aruba with much better service. Stay somewhere else!

Awesome time, Amazing Staff!

This was my first time visiting Aruba- I came with my friend on a college graduation trip and we stayed in the Adults Only Marina Property. We were immediately welcomed by Lessandro who had checked us in and set us up with all-inclusive (which was well worth it considering how much we ran up at the bar). The private island is incredible, you would think it'd be crowded but it definitely was not. Very peaceful and beautiful, and a one-of-a kind picture perfect spot! Andrew, the boat operator, was so fun and made the boat ride a fun experience. We never ventured out into the nightlife, instead we were extremely content staying at the hotel bar every night (granted we had all-inclusive). Nelson, Jose, Brainhen, Glenn, Jacky, and Peter (to name a few) are the best in the business and made our stay that much better by being so friendly, fun and personal. The bar was full every night and it was great to make memories with people from all over! We truly felt like valued guests and had an unforgettable time with the staff. We are very excited to come back and see our new friends. Thanks for an amazing vacation!

Good food and Excellent customer service
