Week Long Gateaway

Hotel is a good bargain. It doesn't have all the bell and whistles of a luxury hotel but there's a mall and casino close by that offer many amenities. Location is below average, it's near the airport so you can hear planes throughout the day while at the pool and the area around the hotel close earlier than the high rise area. The private island access is a great amenity and does make up for the lack of nearby beaches. Room was comfortable but not the cleanliest. Hotel staff was friendly and very helpful.

Fabulous Vacation

This is just a fantastic resort. We were in a quandary about staying here versus the northern, newer part of the island. We ventured north for a fine Italian dinner, and also visited the low rise and high-rise areas. We are perfectly happy with our choice to stay in the downtown area. Many fine restaurants on the property and within walking distance. Well-maintained resort. Nightlife was lacking is my only criticism.

we keep coming back

We clearly like the private island and the location otherwise we would probably find another hotel. The Renaissance is much nicer since the renovation but still the rooms are not always as clean as you would expect. There is really no wifi in the rooms unless you happen to be close enough to the lobby to get a signal from your mini balcony unless a cruise ship is in port then the cruise ship passengers are laying all over the lobby sucking up all the wifi. When I say laying all over the lobby I mean it they are everywhere like ants it's pretty crazy. The other thing that gets me is the adults only marina hotel seems to not be so adult only anymore.Last year was the second time we have had kids on our floor. The private island is amazing and I wouldn't trade that for anything. Strangely the wifi on the private island works perfectly. I totally recommend this hotel i just always give a few warnings first. 1. it is not the Ritz don't expect perfection 2. check the cruise schedule and be prepared. 3. Enjoy the island

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!

Great Hotel Stay Perfect Location

The hotel Staff was great, rooms are clean. Hotel has a happy hour and is located above the shopping mall. The private island is also a great since the hotel is not directly on the beach. When visiting Aruba this is my go to hotel!
