Great location

Posted Dec 29, 2016
Pros: We really enjoyed the private island. A boat ferries you over and is available every 15 minutes to and from the island. Very relaxing atmosphere.
Cons: Slight smell of mold in certain areas. Shower in room was small and glass door didn't prevent water from drenching part of the bathroom floor.
Location: There's a good variety of shopping, relatively good casinos and if you want to venture further, it's all only a taxi-ride away.
My fiancé and I truly enjoyed our stay here. It's in downtown Oranjestad and isn't as crowded as the area with all the resorts, but still has lots of shopping and things to do close by. Loved the Renaissance private island! And the food at the LG Smith Steakhouse was delicious!!

Best beach experience I've had

Posted Dec 21, 2016
The island beach is set up in such a way that rocks protect swimmers from predators and heavy tide action .I could float for 3 minutes at a time in water that might be 4 feet deep in some places. The hotel is downtown but a cleverly designed waterway from the hotel runs under the road and allows a boat to shuttle you to the nearby island where the longest beach is or to the other part of the hotel complex which also has a smaller beach. There is shopping and a variety of places to eat nearby. Very pleasant.

Nightmare stay at the Renaissance Hotel in Aruba.

Posted Dec 6, 2016
Cons: Better treatment to guests from the hotel staff.
I came to your hotel to propose to my girlfriend and booked events with your navigator.One event nearly got us killed and the other a horseback riding tour on the beach which was when I wanted to propose to my girlfriend never came to pick us up and I never got an answer from the hotel to this day as to why we were never picked up.Also some very important sentimental wine glasses of mine were taken from my hotel room and were never found by the hotel also to this day.The hotel manager when I made her aware of the whole mess offered me a flimsy $100 hotel credit.So I never got to propose to my girlfriend in Aruba like he'd planned and the wine glasses are gone forever.Our stay and expierence with hotel ended up being a nightmare rather than a dream romantic holiday that I had originally planned and your hotel was,is and has been doing nothing to try to restore our vacation other than a crummy $100 hotel credit which doesn't even come close to restoring our holiday expierence.Horrible treatment from Renaissance

Best hotel right by the beach...

Posted Dec 5, 2016
At first there a misunderstanding, but the staff was so nice in accommodating me to my needs And that was appreciated...All the staff members was very helpful and always checking up on me whether I was by the casino, beach, or pool...I'd really like that also they had a steakhouse open until 5am. Also the flamingo beach where you get to feed the flamingos is amazing...I loved my ocean suite...the water is to die for, I won't ever forget my vacation!

Dear Edwina kehoe, Indeed, Aruba experienced excessive rain which was neither forecasted nor expected. In spite of all our efforts there were inconveniences which we regret. Hope this nature related isolated incident will not mar your impressions of our Resort & you will consider us for a return visit in the future. Regards, Parimal Trivedi Director of Operations

Nice hotel!!

Posted Nov 23, 2016
Pros: Everything other than the firm beds.
Location: The location is great and near the bus station for easy access. If you're looking for the high-rise area near Palm Beach, it is about 10 mins away.
The Renaissance is a nice hotel. We were hardly at the hotel though for our four-night stay. We didn't get a chance to try out the hotel restaurants. However, we did order poolside drinks and the bartender was nice! We stayed in the Ocean Suites, but had a partial oceanview. :( The shuttle was nice that takes you from one side of the property to the other side. Everyone was polite. The beds were a little bit too firm, but we made it through. We also had massages at the hotel's spa. We loved it!!
