My husband and I spent 1 week in Renaissance Oceanside hotel and absolutely loved it there! Very good location in the middle of Oranjestad with a lot of different restaurants, shopping and sightseeing around. Live music in several restaurants nearby almost every night.We tried different restaurants for breakfast but final conclusion was that best place for breakfast was at hotel restaurant! Very friendly and helpful staff! Concierge Meredith was great!Every night hey had different theme dinner and live music- we even did not have to go anywhere! Private island with Flamingos was exotic! We went to other beaches as well, just used cab. It is 10$ to get to Eagle beech. So we can compare other hotels and decided when we will come back- we will stay at Renaissance again!
Was fortunate enough to score a work trip to Aruba staying at the Renaissance. The resort comprises of three separate areas, 1 family friendly resort, the adult only resort and the private island. All areas are easily accessible for free by the hotel. The facilities were amazing, with a great selection of restaurants, bars and casinos. The private island has the popular flamingo beach with real flamingos. The only downside is that is is away from the main area of the island, meaning a taxi to the lively areas of Aruba but this is not too much of a hassle. It also means the resort is away from other tourists.
Pro:+ Renaissance Island private island is great+ Lovely pool area+ Good food and drink options at island and pool+ Friendly, helpful staff+ Family friendly room at Ocean suites (private bedroom with living room with a comfortable sleeper sofa), kitchenette and nice bathroom+ Renaissance marketplace nearby with dozens of dining options at reasonable prices, also Dublin Donuts, Subway, Starbucks, and Ice cream+ Not a high rise in the main (and very crowded) Palm or Eagle beach, a positive for us+ Proximity to downtown shopping and dining+ Dedicated check in at Ocean Suites, ask your cab driver to take you right there if staying there+ DePalm Tours desk in the hotel, limited to their tours, but very easy and efficient, the lady staffing the desk is very nice too, we took the afternoon snorkel tour and really enjoyed itCon:- Forget about getting a chair at pool if after 9am, seriously every chair at pool and resort "beach" was taken or had personal items on it. People get up early to reserve chairs, sometimes not using them for hours. Two fixes: 1) resort should remove items on unused chairs after 60 minutes, 2) put more chairs out - this was my biggest complaint, room for a lot more chairs - why not have more if competition for them is so fierce???- Shuttle to private island fills up fast in the morning, and we didn't know about the dock in the marina near the Ocean suites, so waited for a few shuttles for in the main hotel the first day- Hotel managed restaurant (Fresco) is too expensive to consider- As other reviews mention, the mini fridge in the room doesn't seem to keep things cold at all, wanted to keep milk for morning coffee but couldn't safely - Hertz desk is overwhelmed and slow to deal with, look for other, cheaper car rentals online that will deliver to the hotel
Stunning. Accommodating. A bit pricey.....but not overly. A VERY Happy Place. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for luxury moderately priced. I believe the staff goes over and above ant request given. Easy walk to many stores and shops.
