Stayed at Renaissance Aruba April 2011 with another family.
Spacious, comfortable bed, comes with in room safe and bar/sink microwave
Tip: ask for ocean view to see the cruise ships coming in.
We liked the location- in walking distance to downtown, beside the marina with a starbucks, casino, theatre and numerous restaurants close by.
Although this resort is away from the palm beach resorts, its and easy 20 min ($25 cab ride) to that area.
Although there are only 3 options (4th option on private island) the food was 5star!!
The buffett at the marina always had fresh seafood options (crab legs, swordfish, salmon, Tilapia etc)
Drinks were great
This is the best part! A water taxi picks you up from the main resort and takes you to their private island (15min away). Its a fun ride and the island is amazing.
There is Wifi on the island and a dedicated restaurant with great meal options (ie. Tilapia for entree and Hagen Daz ice cream for dessert anyone??)
Overall I would recommend this resort to anyone who is looking to go to Aruba with or without a family.
