Trip Report Aruba & Marriott's Surf Club

Jump to last reply

Without kids or spouses, five siblings met in Aruba. The laughter began immediately.

Our 5 night stay was in a 2 bedroom villa, that was spacious & clean; the kitchen met all needs, the ocean view from balconies lovely. I have only nice things to say about housekeeping, the pools, attentive beach staff, the porch swings; the BBQ grill made for quick dinners, even the Zumba class was fun!
There were no hair-braiders or timeshare hawkers.

The Marriott timeshare is a pretty property in the Palm Beach area. We walked over to the adjacent M. Stellaris Hotel/Casino for a sushi meal and iguana visit; also a very nice place.

There are other eateries, shops, water activity rentals and hotel / casinos that are within walking distance.
We did rent a vehicle suitable for off roading, which also made airport runs / food shopping / island exploring part of the fun. The island was easy to navigate. Fuel and food are expensive ( $6.00 milk, $7.00 bag of chips, $7.00 beach beers - but we knew that going there).
Locals were kind with their recommendations for snorkeling sites, and off the beaten path food stops.
