Beautiful private island, close to shopping!

Posted Feb 16, 2017
Pros: Private island, bed, casino, close to shops
Cons: Put fan in bathrooms, clean mold in grout and fix shower doors so water doesn't leak out onto floor.
Location: Shopping and casino was fun! Went on 4 wheeler tour on other side of island. Beautiful! Guide Stuart was great, really took care of us!
My husband and I had a great time at the Renaissance. This is our second time in Aruba and first time at this hotel. Going back and forth to the private island wasn't a big deal. Yes, close to airport but we got used to the planes taking off here and there. Private island is beautiful with many beach chairs. They did have a hard time with keeping up with the towels, though, so you might want to bring some with from hotel pool just in case. Many times it was hard to find open chairs by the pool. Room was fine, they did have a bad set up with shower water getting on floor and mold between tiles, but minor inconveniences we feel. Bed was awesome! All in all great trip, nice to have an adult only hotel! Planning on coming back for sure!

Nice hotel in the middle of everything

Posted Feb 16, 2017
We stayed at Renaissance oceansuits for 1 week and enjoyed greatly. Comfortable bed, beautiful view from the balcony, friendly staff. Every night they have different activities, different dinner events and live music. Concierge Meridith was very helpful with recommendations for good restaurants and activities and making reservations. We went to different restaurants for breakfast but one at hotel was the best place. A lot of nice restaurants around for dinner and entertainment. We had a great time!

Pros and cons

Posted Feb 15, 2017
Pros: Nice hotel located downtown.
Location: Location downtown was quite busy and the hotel is located on the main drag. Walking distance to really great restaurants.
Loved the excellent private beach and boat ride from the lobby!😎 Hated that no room had a balcony 😝 We stayed at the Renaissance marina and casino (adults only), but the "family" Renaissance ocean suites was on the ocean and had balconies.

My second stay at this particular Renaissance. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else in Oregon. Perfect location and it's own island is an amazing experience. So many restaurants and not enough time. I look forward to returning. Belinda in. concierge Judith our waitress and Jose our bartender were amazing. The staff could not be any more helpful , Friendly atmosphere and everyone encourages you do enjoy your vacation

Have stayed here 4 times, but...

Posted Feb 9, 2017
My wife and I have always enjoyed the Renaissance. Have stayed on both sides, and each side has its good qualities. The one truly special feature is Renaissance Island, which is much less crowded than the other beaches with the highrise hotels. But the last two times we stayed, there has been a bad problem with flies on the island. A few years ago it was intolerable, and while it was not as bad a couple of weeks ago, it still has completely ruined the experience. Using 'Off' did not help at all. I don't know why this problem has emerged recently, but it is clear that the Renaissance does not know how to solve the problem. I'm afraid I am going to have to look into other options the next time I go to Aruba.

What else could you need?

Posted Feb 6, 2017
Pros: Location, shopping, private island, dining
Cons: "Adults only" applying to the restaurants as well
Location: Shopping attached to the hotel, a small downtown with shops and dining walking distance
My husband and I took a quick 5 night getaway to Aruba a few weeks ago. We were greeted with smiles immediately upon check-in. The bellman, concierge, and all service staff were so kind and always very pleasant. The room was good, clean, and enough room for what we needed. We spent everyday beachside; the boat that shuttles guests from the hotel to the private island was great! About a ten minute venture, beautiful views, sunshine, and tropical music. Flamingo Beach was a dream, not ever crowded during our stay, no trouble reserving a chair or getting a selfie with the flamingos. The small bar lets you start a tab and servers bring you drinks right to the sand. Food was very good. We opted for the all inclusive option and had no regrets. Drinks were delicious, frozens, mojitos, martinis, you name it. We ate most times at the buffet ( except for breakfast, which we always slept through) and Blue, the bar right in the lobby. Look for Peter at Blue, we was an excellent server and so witty. We never took a dip in the pool, we're more beach-people, but it was very clean and welcoming. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, and will. Recommend to anyone who likes their vacations to be lazy and carefree, all amenities are at your fingertips. Shopping, starbucks, pool, ocean, casino, food... See you again Renaissance.

Great Location

Posted Jan 29, 2017
Great Hotel, good location. We loved the private island. Two negative things about our trip was that we had requested an "island view" room and received a room with a view of the lobby which we could not change because they were fully booked apparantly. The second thing was that there was NO DOOR to the bathroom in our room. As soon as we entered the room we called the front desk to complain and they said it was a "Renaissance Design" that they were working on which was total BS because there was tracks to where the door should be. Definitely made our stay uncomfortable...other than that the hotel was fine, good food nice service.

Very close to the beach

Posted Jan 25, 2017
Very nice place. Although at booking it wasn't explained that there are 2 different hotels. Wish we knew that before standing in a long line to check in at the wrong one. Also, have to keep the balcony door close because a lot of bugs seem to sneak in.

Beautiful view

Posted Jan 23, 2017
We had a beautiful view of the landscape of the hotel and ocean, and the accommodations were perfect for our family of four. We were truly pleased.
