Wonderful Week

Loved our room. Not fond of the location for the shower controls. Fridge was very convenient. Loved the upbeat music at the pool. Loved our server, Elizabeth, at the blue bar. The staff is friendly and helpful. Private island was a nice perk. We enjoyed being in town.

Excellent hotel

What an amazing hotel. We loved the choice of using both the adults and separate family hotel. Added bonus was the speedboat owned by the hotel which took you up to the magical private island with the flamingos. Lovely restaurants with delicious food we especially enjoyed the buffet with a wonderful selection of fresh fish prepared to your requirements.

The hotel is nice, clean and the employees are very friendly, the (pool)bar is great, the snacks and the breakfast is also ver good. The diner buffet was 8 out 10 also very tasty. Every 15-20 minutes you can take the boat to the other hotel or to the private island. We took the boat several times so I don't recognize the bad comment about long waiting times fi or the boat. The private Island is great, you can see a lot of beautiful fish there under water. Overall the people in Aruba are very friendly, I can recommend this hotel but you have to find out for yourself if you need to take the all inclusive deal, we didn't the fool advantage of this deal so afterwards we find out a logies with breakfast would have been a better deal for us. But no regrets at all!

A stay in paradise

We had a fantastic stay at this hotel. I say hotel as it does not feel like a resort as others may. This was our first trip in which we did not book an all-inclusive plan. We absolutely loved our decision. There are many amazing restaurants within walking distance (and by cab- but opted for closer ones) and we ended up spending less and eating better than they all-inclusive option offered by the hotel. Rooms: The rooms are tiny but we had a partial ocean view. There are no balconies. The maids were excellent, rooms were very clean with fresh towels daily. The décor is quite modern and colourful which was nice. The room comes with a chill drawer- not a mini fridge as it does not get that cold. We emailed the hotel ahead of time to ensure our room requests were received. They responded promptly and all was in order when we arrived. Very impressed. Location: As mentioned, the location truly makes this hotel fantastic in downtown Orangestad. It is close to the city bus terminal, many restaurants, I love Aruba sign, movie theatre, cruise ship port and endless shops. We went to a grocery store, just behind the hotel for alcohol and snacks which we kept in the room. We ventured as far as the lighthouse by bus and checked out Arashi beach. The busses don’t come often, but they are approximately $2.50 US per person per way and the bus is very safe with very helpful drivers. We suggest checking our Arashi beach for great snorkeling, the lighthouse for excellent views, Eagle beach to see the famous Divi trees and Palm beach for the sights, cool sand, activities and Eduardo’s beach shack which serves amazing smoothie bowls, smoothies and coco whip. Island: The island, was honestly our reason for choosing this hotel and we are so glad we did. We spent 3 of 7 days on the island. We took the first boat at 7:00am from the lobby of the hotel. We were able to feed to flamingos and walk the beach alone, while taking dozens of photos! There is feed for the flamingos you can purchase as you walk over to the beach after getting off the boat. Bring your quarters and maybe a plastic cup as its 25 cents for a handful. We spent most of our time on flamingo beach as it was adults only. There are few canopies for shade so best to go early. The family beach is called iguana beach however most of the iguanas were on the adult side, trying to eat everyone’s food. They are more than happy to climb onto your lounger and share in your lunch. The resort feeds them at noon each day by the boat dock, it is quite the spectacle as there are so many that come to eat. The restaurant on the iguana beach is just ok, we had breakfast and lunch there, but the wait is usually quite long for lunch. In terms of beach service its ok, but the drinks are very expensive $10-$14 US for a plastic cup of a mixed drink. The cabana rental was our absolute favourite day! We enquired ahead of time, prior to arriving regarding the booking of a cabana, we opted not to book ahead due to all the information and credit card numbers they required via email. Once we arrived three days later, almost the entire week was booked solid with rentals. We ended up getting one at the end of the week. It came with a butler, champagne, sparkling water, floats for the water, towels, shower, cooler and full face snorkel masks. It was beautiful. You still had to purchase your own food and drinks but the service was quicker than on the beach. When we went they only had 4 huts on the adults side- hence the reason they book up fast. However they were building 4-5 more on the family beach. By now they may even be complete. This was a great idea as they are very popular. Restaurants: I will do separate reviews for the restaurants we visited however we did research prior to arriving and these restaurants did not disappoint: -Paddock -El Gaucho -Eduardo’s Beach Shack -De Suikertuin -Bugaloe Beach Bar -Dutch Pancake House -Gelatissimo bistro -Casa Tua Pizza -Que Pasa -Iguana Joes Overall we had a fantastic stay and look forward to returning again soon.

Private island paradise

Visiting Renaissance private island is an absolute MUST if visiting Aruba. You have access to the island free if a guest of the hotel, if not it's $100 per person day pass The boat departs every 15 minutes from the hotel to the island. When you arrive, it'll will blow your mind. Make sure to visit Flamingo beach on the right. Here are 6 resident flamingos who like to be fed with food from the 25cent machine located on the bridge. The beach is absolutely stinnning, turquoise waters, pristine beach with surrounding hammocks.
