Beautiful hotel, every room has a great view.

Posted Apr 24, 2015
My family had a great time at this hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The beaches and pools were wonderful. All the restaurants were very good, a bit pricey though. Would definitely stay there again.

Nice and close to the beach

Posted Apr 22, 2015
Everything was excellent...the only reason I didn't give it 5's all around was because it didn't have a lot to eat 24 hours.

Grieving Traveler

Posted Apr 22, 2015
This was an outstanding choice. The staff is phenomenal and the facility is very clean. A very peaceful environment. The resort was a place of solitude for me while I was grieving the lost of my mother. I had buried my mother four days before I arrived at the Marriott. I will never regret making this trip during this difficult time in my life. The experience gave me some peace and relaxation.

Great hotel beachside in Aruba

Posted Apr 17, 2015
Cons: There was a rental fee for the palapas if they were booked in advance. If you wanted a free palapa, you had to get up at 6:30am and stand in line.
Location: The hotel is located at the north end of the island. It was very nice and calm down at this end. If you want to get places it is about a 15 min walk.
I went for a four night stay in April 2015. From our arrival there until we checked out, the hotel staff was very welcoming and accommodating. All of the resort features were easily accessible. The room, bathroom and balcony were large.

Great Stay

Posted Apr 9, 2015
The employees of the Marriott Aruba go out of there way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We have stayed at the Hyatt which is very nice. However, the service at the Marriott was excellent.

Amazing experience, fantastic staff and facilities

Posted Mar 23, 2015
Pros: Fantastic staff, clean, in good condition. Great beachside, fantastic pools (and adult pool).
Cons: Not impressed with the onsite dining/buffet, unless tradewinds you have to be up at 6am to get free beach area or pay 30/day beach 75/adult pool
Location: If you scuba - do the Antilla wreck dive - it is amazing at 55' depth, a wonderful wreck to dive - one of the best resort dives i have been ever on
What a great hotel, fantastic facilities and wonderful staff. After being onsite for a day, we upgraded to Tradewinds - it is worth it! Cabana reservations, meals, cocktails. Great, clean hotel. Fantastic staff, wonderful location on beach. Casino is nice lots of slots, tables. Covered area for being outside is very important - it gets very hot in Aruba but the breeze makes you not realize.

It was a wonderful stay

Posted Mar 12, 2015
Cons: Find a better way of parceling places in the Adult Pool area - we went down at around 9:30am only to find all chairs taken, but no one occupying them
A good experience. Great weather. Wonderful food. No more to say so don't ask me for more words, please.

Quiet stretch of beach but close to everything...

Posted Mar 8, 2015
Pros: The resort is on the north end of Palm Beach so you don't get much people traffic other than those staying at the resort.
Cons: Although the hotel had renovations near 2008, the rooms look like they could use a little updating already. Clean and comfortable just worn.
Location: Lots of hotels on this strip of beach with shopping and restaurants. 15 minute walk and across the street to an outdoor mall and other shops nearby.
This was my 3rd stay at this Marriott since 2006 and 5th visit to the island. Love the layout of the resort. Clean and very well kept with excellent staff. Definitely love the lobby cafe that is open 24 hrs. Room service is comparable and sometimes cheaper than going out and the portions are adequate and very tasty. Recommend a palapa (hut) on the beach. You either have to get up and in line by 6:30 am the day of for a free one or else rent ahead at a cost of $30/day.
