Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino Oranjestad Reviews

Rather expensive but worth it Jul 11, 2017
The main reason we booked at this hotel was because we wanted to go to the hotel's private island which is appropriately called Renaissance Island. More specifically, we wanted to experience close encounters with the flamingos on this island's beach called..what else..Flamingo beach. (separate review to be posted later)

The hotel itself is located right in downtown Oranjestad and overlooks the Caribbean Sea. There are two hotel staff always on duty at the entrance to welcome their guests and direct you to reception which is on the 2nd floor, so one has to take an escalator to check in. Incidentally, we had to wait for about 15 minutes to check in as there were so many people waiting in line. The hotel sure looked busy although this is supposed to be the low season.

Our room was a bit smaller than I expected but it was adequate and had all the necessary amenities, including bathrobes, iron, safe, coffee/tea maker, TV, plus a small cooler (although I would have preferred a regular fridge). There is also a small round table with just enough space for your laptop to hook up to the complimentary wi-fi

Our room didn't have a balcony, but if you look down through the french windows you can see the canal which runs right up to the small pier for the hotel boat to dock.

A fairly big swimming pool is on the same floor as the front desk and also a lobby bar serving drinks and snacks. As breakfast was not included in the room rate I had to pay an extra $17.50 for a continental breakfast. Anyway, it was filling, the service was good, and the cost was to be expected for a luxury hotel.

We paid US$190/night, which again is quite a lot for us. However, if you take into consideration that the rate included the boat ride to their private island I didn't think the cost was that high because non-hotel guests are charged $99 per person to go to that island!

A small casino is also located behind the restaurant. When I went inside it was nearly empty but I managed to take a photo although you're not allowed to do so. There are many restaurants and bars within walking distance of the hotel. All in all, a good place of accommodation for a short vacation on the happy island of Aruba!
