Fodor's Expert Review Renaissance Aruba Ocean Suites

Renaissance Beach, L.G. Smith Blvd. , Oranjestad, n/a Aruba, Aruba

Spacious suites attract families and groups to this downtown resort that offers its own man-made beach on the sea and free water taxi to its lovely private island minutes away. Even though it's family-friendly, there's plenty of space for adults to escape and relax. The vibe is relaxed and friendly, and the man-made beach runs into the sea, so the water remains fresh and full of colorful fish. On-site dining is limited to the Captain's Corner outside a buffet-style nook, but there's a free shuttle to the sister marina property for fine dining, and it's also a few steps from the Renaissance Marina Mall with lots of shops, a casino, and many dining choices. Its location between the cruise ship port and the airport makes it an interesting place to plane-spot and ship-watch, too.
