Galley has Happy Hour and snacks, next to the Buffet. Great selection of local fish, salads, breads, Caribbean vegs and desserts. Good place to start an Aruba vacation before unpacking at your vacation club. Island drinks followed by Caribbean meal

Did not like the food here. We ate here on the first day because it was convenient, but thought it was an over-priced buffet with mediocre food, and a little salty. The rest of our stay, we ate out because there are a lot of good restaurants in Aruba.

We usually eat here every day while on vacation! It's a great place to grab something quick and the breakfast buffet is really good! Drinks at the bar are also fantastic! Try the slippery monkey! :)

Recently updated with a food service bar, we went here for breakfast multiple times during our trip. The breakfast buffet was the better deal with many options including an omelette station, pastries, yogurts, fruits, cereals, juices, etc. Food is excellent. Also a great spot for lunch. Located at the Marriott Surf Club by the blue umbrella pool area.

We usually don't order from the Captain's Galley until late in our stay when we've run out of breakfast and lunch foods from our kitchen. We had heard about the rotisserie chicken on FB and forgot all about it until the waiter came by the pool and we needed to order lunch. For $25.00 total we got a whole rotisserie... More

The guy would play 4 songs then sit for 30 minutes. the food was bland... More

We ate here the evening before having to leave to go home. Just enough to satiate the appetite and enjoy some cocktails before leaving. Had the fish n chips and personal cheese pizza for dinner. Plentiful and the pizza made for a good leftover snack. With 3 drinks and the above mentioned dinners, the bill came to $53 and change... More

Made reservations for the Carnival Dinner before even getting to Aruba, thought it would be a wonderful show and dinner (like in Hawaii). Unless you have small children you might want to reconsider. The costumes were nothing like the picture they advertise, the dancing lasted 5-10 minutes at best, which was right in front of the buffet line, so there... More

Great drink specials and you don't have to leave the pool. Service was excellent and the food was reasonably priced.
