Located on the Renaissance private island. We were on all inclusive so anything on the menu was available to us for lunch. We found that sometimes they were slower to serve us even if they were not busy.

For those lucky enough to enjoy the Renaissance Aruba Resort and their island, the associated restaurant on the island will not disappoint. For being in such a secluded area, we were pleasantly surprised at the variety and taste of their many menu items. My husband had their chicken burger and I had the flamingo wrap. Both were very good and... More

The flies and birds were constantly on your food and all over the bar supplies. We stuck to cans and decided to eat before heading to the island after seeing this ..we didn't agree with the 'service charge' being added to your bill but then when we asked the staff they said it wasn't part of the tip and we...

On the Iguana Beach (private island) is a great place to order good food and drinks. There is also a place to order on the Flamingo Beach next door. Always good food and a convenient place to get food and snacks while enjoying the beach. Chicken is good and as well as many other menu menu items. GO FOR IT!

The food is always great. The service is always with a smile. Melushka and Gladys have always been great to talk to and order from. Would not want to go anywhere else!!

On the island of the Renaissance resort, we had several lunches with nice and good food (try the crabcake) and excellent cocktails (Bushwacker). Here work some of the best staff, I don't want to mention names because I'm affraid to forget someone, but these ladies know Service!

We could not believe it that they had GF pizza on the Renaissance Private Island but they did and it was so delicious! It's not worth going out there JUST to dine if you aren't a guest at the Renaissance Aruba, but is probably worth staying a night in the hotel so you can go to the Private Island for... More

Margareth made us feel like my spouse and I had known her for years. She is genuine, loving and kind. She was one of the best parts of our trip. We both miss her daily smiles and hugs! When you dine at Papagayo on the Renaissance Island, be sure to sit at her table! Plus, the food there was fresh... More
