    Second time in Aruba and we won’t stay anywhere else. The access to the private island alone is worth it. We love renting the cabanas and the service of the staff is always on point. This trip we had Gregory and Woody and they were fantastic! Professional, available and made themselves available to us for any request while we enjoyed the island. Both had great personalities and were always ready to serve. They both are great examples of why Aruba is noted as ‘One Happy Island’. We will be back next year and look forward to staying at this hotel and enjoying the private island cabanas.

    Gregory the Great!

    The private island is where it’s at! Rented the cabana three times during our stay. During our second cabana stay we had uninvited visitors using our cabana and when we expressed our concerns to the manager she made sure to take care of us the next day by comping us a cabana for the day but the best thing she could do was provide us Gregory who made sure to take care of us the entire day. He went above and beyond to take care of us, checking in with us all day and doing everything with such joy and pleasure. While he was wearing his face mask, I could see his smile in his eyes and hear his smile in his tone. He was EXCEPTIONAL! Rent the cabana and make sure Gregory is taking care of you. He is GREAT!

    The best hotel on the island

    We loved this hotel and Aruba. We will be coming back and staying here! The hotel and private island are beautiful, but what truly made it was the staff! They went above and beyond! They made you feel so welcomed, so appreciated, from the time you walked in with welcome drinks to the time you left. We felt so safe, they were always sanitizing, all staff had gloves, masks, and wiped everything down after each customer. They ensured everyone followed protocols. We loved everything about our stay and we will be back! We highly recommend renting a cabana on the adult side of the isalnd with the flamingos. The view and service were the best!

    OVERALL: My husband and I absolutely love Renaissance Aruba; this is our third stay. Despite the global pandemic, we felt safe, comfortable, welcomed and right at home - as always. The staff are all amazing as usual!! The day we left (8/5/20), masks were required by all guests, so I wouldn’t recommend traveling to Aruba right now until the cases go back down. It would not have been as enjoyable if we had to wear masks everywhere during our stay. FOOD: Marina is closed for renovations, as well as Blue and Aquarius, which was a bummer because we LOVE the buffet and adults-only side. However, the hotel isn’t at full capacity, so staying at ocean suites side wasn’t too bad. But again, we missed the buffet, having the luxury of eating whenever we wanted, and being adults-only...and seeing our hosts’ faces of course!!! I am a vegan, and the cook made exceptions for me. The down side of having to eat at Fresco or Sole each day for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner is that you have to be seated and served, which costs more in tips. So, prepare to spend a little more than usual, as buffet style is NOT available right now, so there is no serving yourself. And Fresco is closed from 11:30 AM - 5 PM, so limited options during those times. We ended up ordering room service a few times because the food options were much better during that time for me as a vegan. If you’re all-inclusive, room service is free (minus tip). Also, everything on the island closes at 11 PM - no exceptions. So, no late night partying right now. TRANSPORTATION: ATV and UTVs are no longer permitted in Arikok National Park, but you can rent a Jeep and enter the park that way (or with tour guide). SHOUT OUTS: amazing staff members, including (but not limited to): Luzmarina, Melanie, Brianhen, Italo, William, Diana, Aieshelline/Ebony, Marc and of course our Betty!!!

    On 8/1/20, Lindo was our butler for the day of a cabana rental. He was very attentive, checking in on us and anything we may have wanted. We did order breakfast that morning, and he was great with timing and delivery. Very much appreciated his efficiency and all his efforts. TY, Lindo.
