We vacationed on the lovely island twice last year. Our most recent trip was early December, 2016. It was a great time to go to start the holiday season! The island and hotel are decorated so beautifully. It rained a bit off and on during the trip, but not enough to dampen the vacation.We always stay at the Renaissance Marina hotel and will continue to in the future. The hotel management and staff continue to keep their hotel fresh, modern, friendly and professional. Each time we stay, there is always a new building/resort improvement to enhance the property. We loved the renovations to Renaissance Island! The Papagyo staff, especially Gladys Seyas, were always attentive, warm and friendly. During our trip it was my husbands birthday. The Renaissance staff bestowed birthday wishes to him throughout the day (much to his embarrassment since he is a bit shy about his birthday).We will be back again as soon as possible!!
This resort was honestly one of the best I've ever been to. The customer service was amazing, and the staff were all extremely nice and helpful. They never let my drink go empty (we did the all-inclusive plan) and always remembered me and my family personally each day. I was skeptical about being on the Marina side because I love ocean-view rooms, but I hardly spent any time in the room with all of the bars, restaurants, beaches, pools and things to do. The boat taxi to the private island was cool because it got me out on the water and brought me to amazing views of the sea. The flamingos on the beach were definitely one of the best parts of the trip! Aruba is truly "one happy island," and I would definitely go back.
We were supposed to stay at Riu Palace and the day of our trip as we're waiting to board our plane, they had advised Expedia that they overbooked the hotel. I asked Expedia to put us in the Renaissance since I heard great things about it. I have to say this hotel is clean and all the staff is super friendly. I suggest booking with the all inclusive package. It's so worth it if you want to eat and drink. The beds are super comfy! I wish I could bring the bed home with me. The rooms are clean and modern. The best is the private island. One side is family friendly and the other is adults only with the flamingos. The ocean suites are family friendly while the marina side is adult friendly but don't worry if you see some children on the marina side. You're able to go to both hotels to enjoy the restaurants. I had an amazing time and would recommend this hotel to others. When I come back to Aruba I will make sure to stay at the Renaissance again
Well, the good news the hotel is very trendy and friendly. The bad news, the rooms are very small, no place to hang wet clothes, the fridge was broken, the Aquarius buffet is disgusting. Flies all over the food, one griddle, egg whites look like flat tires, lobby bathroom very dirty, pool is very small, no relaxing to be had bc of the big traffic area of horns and sirens, never a pool chair to be found, no music playing. #1 DO NOT DO THE ALL INCLUSIVE. It was like wording off a kids menu.
The resort was a great place to stay. The private island was relaxing and a lot of fun with the flamingos and the iguana. The rooms were clean and beds super comfy. There was a lot of shopping close by and great restaurant choices. I would definitely stay there again.
