This was our second hotel on our trip, we stayed here at the Ocean Club for 3 days in a 2 bedroom villa overlooking the pool. We really liked Champions sports bar and I had the best Philly cheesesteak ever. The beach was wonderful and we rented floats for $5 each and could have spent all day floating. We enjoyed...

We spent 5 nights at the Ocean Club. I will start with the pros: The location is very good--quick drive north to great snorkeling at Boca Catalina, 20 minute drive south into Oranjestad--in the area designated "High-Rise Hotels." The 1-bedroom suite was fairly clean, with a full kitchen, towels for kitchen and bathroom, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer. TV and wifi...

I loved everything about this place. The food at the poolside bar was so delicious (grouper sandwich my fav!), and they had a great sports bar in the hotel. They were within walking distance to a great nightlife of restaurants and shopping. The beach and water was breathtaking. My room was beautiful, although I didn't have much of a view...

Recently spent a week @ the Ocean Club trading our timeshare in St Kitts; when we booked the unit we were told we would get "like accommodations", we own a two bed/two bath OCEAN FRONT unit in St. Kitts. When checking in we were given a ground floor unit with no view. We voiced our frustration and were "upgraded" to...

The staff here were amazing, from the front desk, housekeeping, to bartenders and the servers in the restaurants. We went in Oct, and had no problem getting a hut on the beach any time of the day that we strolled out. Some other reviewers said you had to get up early to get a hut...we got up no earlier than...

This is our second stay at the Ocean Club, the first was 11+ years ago for our Honeymoon. This year we brought our children as we wanted to change up our normal Disney Vacation. The Ocean Club is as nice as ever, the rooms have been updated and were in very good shape. The full kitchen was a major help...

This is our 40th and our friend’s 20th anniversary. A bit special for all of us. We arrived a little early and were checked in and given a charge pass so off we headed to the pool bar. Everyone was very nice. The pool area and bar overlooked the beach and ocean. The next day it would be our hangout...

Aruba is a beautiful place to go on vacation. I just got back for a week-long vacation & the weather was perfect. It was 86 degrees everyday with no clouds in the sky!

We arrived at the Ocean Club after a pair of long flights (from Calif.). The greeting was warm and welcoming. The lobby was comfortable, and the check in efficient and quick.

Just returned from trip 35 to Aruba and the Marriott Ocean Club continues to be our home away from home.
