This year we will be enhancing the guest rooms at the Renaissance Ocean Suites in an effort to provide guests with the best service and amenities. The renovation of our 259 suites will commence early March 2014 and is anticipated to be completed by the middle of November, 2014. Room renovations will be ongoing, 7 days a week, one floor and wing at a time. The Resort Management team will make every effort to keep noise levels at a minimum during this time. All noise-related work will be done during day time between the hours of 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM. These renovations will not be visible to hotel guests because of keeping all work confined to one section at a time. The section will be completely closed off during the time of redo.

Great food!!!!

On the plus side, my room was very spacious and the bed, super, super comfortable. Some, although, not all members of the staff went out of their way to help out, as I was pregnant and traveling alone on this occasion. On the negative side, there was a construction in the pool area and there was constant banging in the lobby, which made it almost impossible to be there. The food at the buffet restoraunt was just wonderful and the beach was very nice. If not for the construction, and people smoking in the lobby, it would have been really great overall. But for those setbacks i give it a 4 out of 5.

Heaven on earth

We have been to several beach destinations and wanted something remarkable for our honeymoon. From the view(incredible), the staff(awesome), the private beach(topless option on adult side) and the overall upgraded, chic rooms, we WILL be back. Thanks to the management for the champagne and cheese, along with the handwritten note. All in all--stay on marina side, upgrade to Ocean Suite and prepare to be amazed.

6th visit from a very loyal customer however dissatisfied and disappointed this time

Have always loved Aruba and the renaissance specifically. However on this trip I found the the employees very rude and careless towards guests. Seems my credit card was used in hotel by someone and when I contacted front desk it was nothing but a hassle on my vacation!! It was a mistake on hotels account. 3 charges were made and it took two day to rectify situation. Evening manager was rude and abrupt w me. 3 transactions were made while I vacationed. Hotel didn't compensate me in any way except that they tied up time on my vacation to handle something that they caused to happen. Highly unlikely that I will patronize in the future.

Nice hotel

I liked the hotel but didn't like I have to take a 10 min boat ride to beach. In downtown close to shops so that might be to the liking of others. Nice pool
