Great holidays

NataliaAP89 (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) on Oct 09, 2021

Great location, really pleasant and clean room, but there is a thing that makes this hotel such a good place to stay are the staff. All of the people are incredibly helpful and generous with their advices and time. It was our first time in Aruba and for sure unforgettable. Special thank you for Renesch who was very kind, cheerful, helpful- giving us good advises while we were planning the trip around the Island and sending positive vibes, Lisa from Allegra restaurant with her great stories,amazing attitude and of course Berny the Best bartender. Hopefully we'll be back soon Natalia & Aga

Bernie is the coolest bartender!

The pool is truly relaxing and even more picturesque than in the pictures. What made it more inviting was the in-pool bar and bartender, Bernie. Every morning we were greeted with, "Good morning, Mr..., here is your coffee"...like wow, we didn't want to leave this place. The service was #1 throughout the hotel. Very attentive. The room cleaning folks were super friendly as well and left our room consistently organized/clean everyday of our 10-day vacation. We came for our honeymoon and two-year anniversary (covid delayed our honeymoon). We absolutely recommend this place.

!Never again!

Mcool87 (Munich, Germany) on Sep 26, 2021

Unfriendly staff at the reception, no hello, no greeting, just chatting with one another and annoyed at guests, talking from a high horse down . The only staff that was nice were the cleaners, down to earth and know what the word ‘respect’ means. We booked and paid for a room with balcony but didn’t get it, had to let them know before they changed the room and the new room was a disappointment with a balcony was with the worst view possible. Tried to sell guests by bribing us to take part in a sales pitch where we would have paid thousand of dollars. When we left the event we were again confronted with an unfriendly attitude. Would never book a trip to this building with staff like this ever again. Pool and bar was nice, that’s about it.

Amazing experience at this resort

ninakN8480HG (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) on Aug 20, 2021

This was our first trip to Aruba and VIP Concierge Laura went out of her way to help us. She made a prioritized list of places to visit, beaches and restaurants. Food was delicious, fresh and plentiful. Impressed with healthy breakfast selections and choice of dishes at each meal. Rooms are great-bed is so great that I felt like I was sleeping on feathers, plenty of closet space along with micro and frig. The workout room is well equipped and clean.

Unpretentious!

LAWRENCEDULAC (New York City, New York) on Aug 09, 2021

First off, I think a shout out to the Hotel Staff member by the name of Exotic is in order! She was working the Front Desk in the afternoon during my stay. She was friendly and helpful. Was able to handle ANYTHING thrown her way. If a few other of her coworkers worked with half as much caring and professionalism with regard to their duties- the Marriott Courtyard would be unbeatable. In all seriousness- Exotic deserves a promotion. Marriott you better not a good one like that get away! The Marriott Courtyard is just that- a hotel built around a pool in a courtyard. Its unpretentious, honest and was a pleasure to stay in. Be careful with the views. I had THE worst view in the entire complex- BUT, I also only returned to the hotel to have a light supper, have a few drinks, and go to bed after a long day of off resort activities.
