Our room “balcony” (that was not big enough for one chair) opened to the lobby. The rooms were small and dated. The walls are so thin you can hear the conversation taking place in the next room. There are many renovations happening with the escalators working only half of the time. The pickup spot for the boat was not functional our entire stay, and we had to be picked up and dropped off across the street. The hotel did not meet our expectations at all.

We paid for an ocean view room that could sleep 3. We were given a room that had no view of the water because they said that they had no rooms left that had a view. Even though we paid for a room. We had to wait for two nights before they could get us into the room that we had paid for. They didn't give us any credit for the lesser room either.

I loved that this property had a water taxi that took you too the private island. The private island was the highlight of the trip.

The adult Only section had many young children. The food in all but one restaurant was un-remarkable and the menu's never changed. The Island was wonderful but the Renaissance Aruba Resort and Casino property left a lot to be desired.
