Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino was so great to us. They treated us like family. Everyone was friendly and helpful especially Chimay at the front desk (Thanks Chimay)All the restaurants at the hotel were excellent the food was great the service was great.And the best part of our trip was the Flamingo beach on Renaissance private island. The flamingo were so beautiful and the beach was so clean.
I visited Flamingo Beach for the day. it was one of the most entertaining days of my trip. It was clean.. everyone was so kinda and friendly. The good was delicious and the staff at the restaurant was wonderful, especially Melushka! She made sure we had everyone we needed .. we went to the restaurant for breakfast and was so please with her service, we requested her back for lunch, which we did have her again. She was wonderful! Everyone on the Island was great.. i would go again in a heartbeat! Great Day!!!!
Too crowded on the private island
My wife and I have been coming to Renaissance Island since 2006 and at least once a year (sometimes twice) for at least 10 years. However, I think this trip will be the last. Renaissance Island is advertised as a private island for hotel guests. But the managers on the island keep building it up more and more to the point where there where will be a 10 story hotel on the island soon. First, they are allowing more and more non hotel guests to buy day passes to the island. Next, they are booking more and more private events so one or both sides of the island are closed. Then they started building private cabanas to force you to pay more money if you want to have somewhere to sit and relax from the crowds of people. And there are rumors that they will build even more cabanas. There are a lot of beaches back home in the US. They reason we keep spending good money to come back every year is for the peace and quiet on the private Island. Sadly, it seems this is coming to an end. The staff on the island are amazing and are some of the nicest people you ever meet. However, the Renaissance management just keeps allowing more and more people to crowd the island, to the point where they run out of chairs. Unless the Renaissance management stops overdeveloping the island and allowing non hotel guests to go to the island? we will be looking for a new resort or island to visit next year.
We stayed at the Ocean Suites for my sister in laws wedding which was on the private island and absolutely amazing & beautiful. The staff is wonderful and the service is exceptional. We were always greeted with a smile and were very well taken care of. Remco at the Solé Bar took especially good care of us throughout our stay and went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we needed! Iliana from Sole Bar was also amazing and full of energy! We will surely be back to Aruba and the Ocean Suites! The private island is also a must see. It's very convenient to get there an back as there are many boats running throughout the day. Papagayo is the restaurant on the island which served a great lunch and a delicious breakfast. Make sure to have Lemieux serve you on the beach while you lounge all day. We also never struggled to find seats for our group of 8. The food was amazing, the steakhouse and Aquarius were a few of our favorites! We definitely recommend vacationing here!
Not impressed for the $ and very noisy at night
Husband and I came to Aruba for our honeymoon, picked the Renaissance due to the adults only and the flamingo island. I would never stay here again! First of no one is helpful at the front desk, we had a package that said we get breakfast included and was supposed to get shopping credits and casino credit and a credit at Blue. No one explained any of this to us and when we asked about the credit for Blue they said just charge it to your room and it will come off at the end. We didn't get any other credit for shopping or the casino that was "included". Our room was right near the main road...may have been an "ocean view" but extremely noisy! Especially at night they have a DJ and the base is so loud our room was bumping at midnight when we were trying to sleep. The pool area sucks! It's right on the main road, not peaceful at all and barely any chairs in the sun. The other pool area at the Ocean Suites is much better. At the Marina hotel I was by the pool one day and asked the server for a glass of water, she told me "only bottle water you have to pay for if you want tap you go downstairs and get it at the bar" (mind you I have gotten a cup of tap water by the pool multiple times from the other servers). I was so pissed, she basically just wanted money and tips...rude (FYI the servers name was Elizabeth). So I went down to the bar and got my water and made a huge complaint to the bartender and other server down there, I told them I was going to order food later but now I'm not and I'm leaving! Overall I would NOT stay here if you want to sleep at night or want a peaceful time by the pool! Very noisy! This hotel should not be associated with Marriott, this hotel is far from a Marriott. Unimpressed.
