Fodor's Expert Review Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino

L. G. Smith Blvd. 101, Palm Beach, n/a Aruba, Aruba

This full-service resort offers both family-friendly amenities as well as an adults-only luxury floor that has its own pool and snazzy lounge on the ground floor. Lots of organized activities, a superb seaside pool circuit, and a children’s playground mean lots of families choose this resort. The beachfront offers calm surf and every kind of water sport imaginable, and dining also caters to a wide range of tastes from romantic toes-in-the-sand by tiki-torch to modern high-end steak house to a family-friendly buffet. The Great Room entrance is almost a destination in itself with a massive Starbucks, a Gelato & Co outlet, and scads of comfortable couches and working spaces with plug-ins. Non-guests also flock to the Lobby Bar for the great drinks, sushi and sashimi offerings, and frequent live music at night. The ultra modern casino off the lobby adds to the draw as well.

  • adults-only oasis and adults-only floor
