Our Aruba experience

The Hotel has a great lobby with a beautiful bar and pool facing the water and palm trees. The location of the hotel is great. You are near good shoppiing and great restaurants. The beach is on a private island where you can have lunch, use the gym and lie in a hammock or under a palapa. The room was comfortable but a little small and you could only get wifi in the lobby.

modern style hotel

Our stay here was good due to the fact where the hotel is located. It is close to everything. Marina is right across the street. Nice boat ride takes you to a private island which turned out better than I expected. Room was clean.

Great winter get away!

What great time we had at the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino. The staff was super, amenities fantastic...especially the private island! and the on site bar / pool was magical at night. We enjoyed dinner and drinks, listening to smooth jazz by the Xpressions while overlooking the beautiful on site casino. We felt no need to wander any further...maybe next time. Throughly enjoyable stay!

Not what I was expecting

This was our honeymoon and we haven't been away in years so this trip was something we were looking forward to. The Hotel its self is wonderful and eye pleasing. However the rooms were very uncomfortable with umbrella fabric sofas that you slid right off of. The toilet is located facing the shower so in the middle of the night i smashed my face on the glass. Who sits straight up and down when they sit.. no one so why only a 1 foot clearance from the toilet to the shower. You have to close the bathroom door to turn the light on then open the door again. Pool water was freezing, so wasn't the lagoon in front. The Captains Cove restaurant was out of food when we went for the buffet and still got charged. Out flight was canceled and there was no concierge to help us and the receptionist told us to use our phone for a local call. Well when the bill came it was over 125$ just to be on hold. No help from the front desk. They were awful and their customer service was not up to par what so ever. If your 60+ like the majority of the guests than maybe the little things don't matter. But to me little things make all the difference. I would suggest another hotel with better customer service, one who cares about their guests and goes above to help them when needed. I read the other reviews and thought this place was amazing.. It wasn't

Convenient hotel, private island access is phenomenal

Need I say more? location is prime, private island access including the awesome 10 minute ride there was great. Hotel room itself was minimalist approach, the "cooler" in the room runs through air conditioning, don't count on for your fridge needs. Overall, would definitely consider staying again for the location, and private island.

Love it

Just know the location is by the marina and away from everything however you do get your own private island with flamingos on the right side and iguanas to the left. Actually when you fly into aruba before landing at the airport you can see the private island owned by the renassiance..... staying on palm beach is where the nightlife really is if that's your cup of tea.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Stay here if you are taking a cruise it's walking distance to the marina and closer to the airport

Not the best location, but some really good things

THe private island was the best part of the hotel. So much better beach, water, amentities than the actual hotel itself. Bar staff at the pool was absolute worse. Don't bother tipping as they already add in service charge. housecleaning crew was fantastic! make sure to utilize boat taxi to the private island and to the other casino property they own (Adult only but much better facilities, except it is not on the beach - but has much better shopping, restaurants, spa, gym, casino, bar, etc). Free wifi is everywhere so you can always stay connected. Only annoying thing is everytime you move 500 feet you have to log onto a different wifi network around the property.
