Overview

Ample amenities, including two casinos, a spa, six restaurants and a private island
Recent guests said the rooms appear worn

Sitting on 40 acres in Aruba, the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino caters to both couples and young families with its two distinctive areas: the adults-only Renaissance Marina Hotel and the kid-friendly Renaissance Ocean Suites. The adults-only Renaissance Marina Hotel features a casino (one of two at the property), a fitness center, an infinity pool and the Okeanos Spa. Meanwhile, Renaissance Ocean Suites boasts its own beach lagoon, outdoor pools and the Patamingo Kids Club. No matter which section of this Renaissance resort you stay at, you'll have access to six restaurants (plus a Starbucks and two bars), a private island with family and adults-only beaches, and the shops at the attached Renaissance Mall. Guest rooms and suites in both areas offer contemporary decor, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and private balconies or patios. Although some past guests said the room decor was a bit dated, many loved the private island, friendly staff and tasty cuisine. If you're a member of the Marriott Bonvoy program, you can use accrued points to pay for your stay.

A landmark property right on the marina in the heart of the Oranjestad, Renaissance Aruba offers guests the best of many worlds, including adult-only accommodations, stellar upscale shopping, and a free water taxi from the lobby to an idyllic private island minutes away.

Renovated rooms in the adults-only Marina Hotel are super-modern and trendy, designed to look like a custom yacht, with slick furniture and neutral colors brightened by pops of aqua. The more family-focused Renaissance Ocean Suites' 2014 renovations brought topnotch technology and neutral colors to island decor.
