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.

Nice Resort

This resort has lots of things to do plus it's close to other activities. The private island was wonderful (except for the mosquitos) and the pools and lagoons were refreshing. The staff was very friendly. I would go back in a heartbeat.

OK place

The hotel was beautiful, but had a moldy smell. The rooms were eh. They were updating the lobby floor while we were there. They have a private island which is gorgeous. Location is great!

Great girls getaway

I booked the trip to Aruba for a girls getaway and was pleasantly surprised by the hotel accomodations. The hotel is perfectly located. You can "walk" to just about any destination. The employees of the Renaissance Marina Hotel were so pleasant and welcoming. I forgot my carry-on bag on the Palm Tours Bus and the Bellman quickly called the desk to alert the driver of the bag. I received it within 1 hour. The Palm Tours employees were fantastic - We booked the Jeep Tour with Snorkeling in the Natural Pool- Absolutely AMAZING!! I highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting the island of Aruba.
