"Home away from home! One happy island!:)"
I have stay there many many times but this time they have close the doors to the outside to the streets and if you want to get to the restaurants that are just a short walk away across the street you have to go through the back and all the way to the Holiday Inn to access the restaurant or the mall area, unless you take a taxi in the front that makes […] no sense!

"Very nice facility,right on the water,"
we had a very relaxing vacation. Spent a lot of time at the beach and the 2 poolsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fabulous hotel and staff on one happy island!"
From start to finish the hotel staff pampered my wife and I during our first visit to Aruba. The Tradewinds Club is well worth the extra cost and Erna was a stand out among the staff. They even accommodated our vegetarian requests at the daily buffet. If you want to be treated like family we highly recommend the Tradewinds Club. While on the beach, […] Hermania will take care of your Palapa reservation, and stop by regularly throughout your beach day with cold water and a surprising slap of a cold towel on your back! She has a charismatic personality and is always makes you laugh with her humor. The hotel was recommended to us by our close friends who have been returning to this hotel several times a year for many years. We will surely stay here in the future.

"Couple's get away"
We enjoyed our time in Aruba tremendously; the Aruba Marriott - Stelaris Casino was a great place for us to stay. It's a large property with many amenities. Most importantly, it's situated right on the beach. Which is basically along with a tropical drink and some fish tacos, all you really need, right?Genuine Expedia guest review
very nice hotel / great beach dining/very nice pools will certainly stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Love the place, superb Beach and loved the food...but it can be pricey! best vacation, including the best island I've been to...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful, quiet beachfront setting."
We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation at the Marriott. It was easy to fall in love with Aruba. The people and ambiance were warm and easy going. They can't do enough for you. Everyone at the hotel was warm, welcoming and friendly. At check-in we even got upgraded. The hotel staff always smiled and greeted us. We had to call the concierge to fix our […] backed up toilet and someone came within 10-15 minutes. The rooms were clean and comfy, with some sign of wear. It offered eco-friendly choices.The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. Bathrooms offered double sinks. Our room had a beautiful partial ocean view and balcony. The room had closets with bathrobes.There was a private adult pool with bar. Towels were always available for the pools and beach. Although we rented a car, plenty of taxi's waiting to take you anywhere. Free parking is a plus but come the weekend the lot gets full with outside cars. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Overall very pleasant stay"
Close to the beach which was great, not alot of room on beach can get very crowded.... Pool was great an they have an adult pool which is nice... And Happy hour is every day 2 for 1 drinks! Great casino and food within resort... Room was perfect... They need to change hallway decor tho.. OutdatedGenuine Expedia guest review

"could be a great hotel in Aruba...but falls short."
The hotel is situated and large enough to be an exceptional hotel, however, it falls short of its potential-by way of services that should be 'generous'to its guests.You have to scramble everyday to secure a beach 'shaded palm umbrella' or you can pay for 3 days worth of securing it. Towels are not given generously...if you have 4 people staying in […] your party...you are only given 4 towels...no more...and further more you are made to feel like your committing a crime if you ask for another towel to use. sitting on wet towels after you swim isn't pleasant! Also...expect a 'maintenance' check of your room at least once a week from 9-4:30pm...and if you object and tell them it is inconvienient...too bad...they do it anyway. Some of the staff is very friendly...others not so much. If you ask the front desk to change a dollar for coins so that you can take a bus...forget it..I was directed to go into the casino to do that. really? While on the beach, only 2 people are working to take orders of drinks & food. They work hard, however, they have a lot of ground to cover...Pool is loud and blaring music all day. Adult pool is the only quiet area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino Dear Peter Thank you for your review of our resort, it is very much appreciated. You mentioned the beach palapa’s, and I have to say that it certainly is difficult for all of the major beach hotels to manage this area, all of Aruba’s beautiful beaches are public, and as such the number of palapa’s we have is not regulated by the hotel. We do feel that we offer a very fair approach to getting a palapa, which allows some to be given out in the morning for the next day, some in the afternoon and some at a small price. Of course the system is not perfect, and not everyone may get a palapa every day during peak season, but we do restrict the resort Palapas to resort guests only. Recognizing this we did add an additional pool last year, which has become very popular with our adult guests. You also mentioned a couple of areas where we failed you, and I will certainly review this feedback with our team. I am sorry that your stay was not as it should be, but please be assured that your feedback will be used to help us improve. Matt Matt Knights, Hotel Manager, Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino
"Aruba was Awesome!"
Aruba is awesome! The Marriott was great: the staff were always so helpful. We did not experience any issues checking in or departing. We couldn't have asked for a better time. Everyone is so friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful resort and great beach"
I enjoyed my stay at the Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino Hotel. The rooms were very nice. My only complaint was that I paid extra for a ocean front room and the room overlooked the pool with the ocean on the side. However, the hotel did move us to a beach front room the following day. I suggest a better definition be given for what constitutes […] a beach front room. The first room was really a partial ocean front room. The beach was absolutely famous. The water was very calm and beautiful. My only complaint is you had to get in line at 6:30 AM in order to reserve a beach umbrella unless you wanted to pay for it the previous day. Getting up very early is difficult on vacation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Melinda the manager at the front desk was extremely helpful and made a huge difference in our stay. Otherwise, this hotel is great with the exception that you have to rent the huts on the beach the day before or at 7:00am the day of and it needed more activities or entertainment and restaurants. It's also a must do all inclusive. The food's excellent […] but expensive so get all inclusive even if your eating dinner other places. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Love the beach"
Plenty of water sports, beautiful beach shopping and restaurants within walking distance. Love, love, loved it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best vacation ever!"
Aruba is simply amazing. The weather, food, staff, entertainment was simply awesome. I wish the swim up bar was on the adult pool side was my only small complaint. Simply fish was my favorite dining experience. We enjoyed the comedy show. We will return to Aruba. We celebrated honeymoon number 5!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nothing to rage about!"
Nice hotel however, don't expect anyone from the staff to be waiting outside to take your bags. No one to great you or even to help you as you leave. The beach had a lot of plastic cups sunk to the floor. We kept taking some out and putting them on the sand. Told one of the staff members who said he knows and walked away without picking up the ones […] we had taken out. They did not take out beach lounge chairs for us. You must ask them to do something or they will pretend to be busy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Right on Palm beach, close to Eagle Beach"
Hotel is right on Palm Beach and just a couple of miles away from Eagle Beach on one Side and Boca Catalina on the other. Eagle Beach is much quieter than Palm beach if you want a relaxed day at the beach. Boca Catalina is a must do if you like snorkeling.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome Hotel with Great Service!!"
Great room. Ocean front junior suite. Had awesome View of the beautiful Ocean!! Staff professional and always kind. Can't Wait to Go Back!!!Genuine Expedia guest review

Great beach, relaxing adult pool, delicious restaurants. Awesome place to stay!Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall, a great resort with great amenities and restaurant options. The beach is pristine and offers many conveniences such as your own hut and lounge chairs for enjoying the shade. There are also a variety of watersports easily accessable from the beach. A great time was had by all!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Did Not Measure-up"
Comparing it to the Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort in Nassau, Bahamas, one amenity Mariott did not measure up was evening entertainment. One example is the Sheraton played a movie on a projection screen by the pool and the evening entertainment at the Mariott was almost non-existent. Aside from that it was a nice experience but I would be more likely […] to explore other destinations before returning. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"very nice hotel!"
we Arrive At Aruba marriot, and indeed it was a magical place. the room was soo clean and the bathroom is everything!!! A.C in the room was super chill which i loved. our room had a garden view and to be honest i dont know why they call it garden veiw because from the balcony of my room you can honestly see everything!! the ocean, and beautiful pool. […] absolutely stunnig view. The beach very close to the hotel. When the lady at the front desk asked us the reason for our visit and we informed her it was our birthday, after we checked in and got to our room there was a delicious cake waiting for is in our room (that was soo coool)!! Everyone was soo helpful and friendly. We had our birthday dinner at simply fish which is right on the beach with and excellent view of the ocean, after dinner the whole staff at the restuarant suprised is with another cute birthday cake, and sang "happy birthday" .... that was the best moment of my entire trip!!

"Great adult pool but rooms could be more romantic"
Overall, it was an excellent experience. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family. However, if planning a honeymoon, I would recommend you book a more romantic, intimate hotel. Although the adult pool is quite exclusive, the overall hotel experience is a bit run-of-the-mill. My fiance and I were a bit disappointed with the room. […] Although it had a partial ocean view, there was an irritating noise coming from what appeared to be a huge A/C system. When we mentioned it to the hotel staff, they acted as if it were the first time hearing about this issue. Also, the rooms are very standard; the bed is average at best (pillows are too soft) and the bathroom could use a jet tub. They were also very skimpy with providing towels and we had to ask each day for extra towels. The pluses are Ruth's Chris and La Vista (restaurants) right on the grounds and the gorgeous beach with ample huts but make sure to book your hut early! They are impossible to get mid day and especially on the weekend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Staff handled our concerns immediately, was very helpful. Great hotel (best of the 3 Marriott's on Palm Beach) and best on the strip - not in the very crowded high-res hotel areas.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Enjoyable Stay, but Nothing too Fancy"
My family enjoyed our stay at the Marriott Stellaris Hotel. The beach area is clean and far enough away from the piers that are closer to the Radisson Hotel area. This hotel is a good walk from the Mall area where the shopping and restaurants are located, but its probably best to take a cab ($6 one way from Mon-Sat and $9 on Sun). The beach area is […] clean and not too congested compared to the other hotels. The pool area is not as nice as the Radisson (which we visited and also considered). However, the lobby area is much better thank the neighboring hotels. There are two restaurants on the property and a deli area. La Vista serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and also offer buffets, which costs $25 a person (a la carte is also available). We had dinner one night at Simple Fish, which is on the beach...great ambiance, but dinners are expensive. In fact, dinner is expensive everywhere on Aruba. Expect to pay a minimum of $50 per couple (without tip). Overall, we had a great time here. The staff were all very, very friendly and accommodating, but may be slow at times (I believe that service is just a tab bit slower on the islands, in general). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My boyfriend and I are in our upper 20s living in NY. We've been to fancier and hotels in NY and Atlantic City. The room was alright and decent for a few days. The facility was average size and the age crowd was a little older than we've expected. Not a big selection of food available at the hotel - plus, it was pricey. My boyfriend bought a local beer […] (Balashi) in which they poured out from a can priced at $8. The pool was pretty small and there's iguanas walking around everywhere.

"Good location but otherwise just ok"
You will get a normal sized hotel room in a good location. The hotel service is average for the category. For truly great service and much better apartments , that will suit a family better, the Costa Linda timeshares are far superior.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice resort hotel with in-house casino"
This resort hotel is large and in a row with a block of Marriott time shares and vacation club apartments. It was well maintained and clean. The staff were helpful, some more so than others. However be aware that the staff push their own restaurants and facilities and only mention off complex places when directly asked. The adult pool was nice and quiet […] but spaces fill up fast and the family pool has a swim up bar and waterfall and a lot more space for the loungers. The beach huts are booked up fast (booking starts at 7AM) so be prepared to get up early to reserve one. The resort is beach front on a beautiful white sand beach with a roped off swimming area. You can rent floats and beach equipments, towels and loungers are provided by the hotel. The La Vista restaurant does a fantastic lobster and seafood buffet on a Saturday evening but then every night is the seafood buffet. The Simply Fish restaurant on the beach is a little expensive but well worth it for the service, the beautiful view and the experience. I would recommend not doing the all inclusive but investigating some of the local restaurants on the island. Ruths Chris is also part of this complex and there is a store and 24 hour cafe in the lobby. The Casino is in the hotel. It is noisy and smokey and they seem to have regular bingo nights which seemed strange but is poplular with the locals. It does not influence the rest of the hotel.

We stayed 4 nights and loved the experience. Staff was friendly gym was clean. But it was difficult to get cabana and beach chair.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel, right on the beach"
Hotel delivered as promised. Right on the beach, two great pools and a very friendly staff. Went during the end of May and the hotel was not crowded at all. While there was lots to do, my intent was to just lay by the pool and beach and relax. Which would bring up my only complaint about the hotel. After two days there, I was informed that you needed […] a reservation for the beach huts. This was never mentioned upon check in or when I previously went down to the beach to use the huts. On this day, I was told the hut I was using was reserved, when I asked to reserve a hut for myself I was told none where available that day. A few others were told this as well. Spending the day at the beach there were at least a dozen huts not used. I have no issues with needing to reserve the huts but it seems like the reservation system they are using isn't the accurate. Also it would be helpful to notify guests of this policy upon check-in. Otherwise a very enjoyable stay. If you love fish - check out the grouper sandwich at Waves restaurant - so good that I had it 3 days in a row! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Week in Aruba"

"THE MARRIOTT STELLARIS HAS THE BEST BEACH ON THE I"
MOST ATTENTIVE AND FRIENDLY STAFF I HAVE EVER COME ACROSS.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was our first trip to Aruba and I loved it. The island is beautiful the weather, the water nothing can compare. I am a very fussy person in regards to a clean room and I have to say the Marriott met all my needs. The Marriott was beautiful, our room was very clean it had a balcony and you could sit outside. We were on the 7th floor facing the ocean […] and the sunsets were just beautiful. We ate Simply Fish on the beach I thought the food service and atmosphere were excellent. In the weeks time we ate at many of the Marriott resturants and especially liked the buffets at La Vista. Everything was wonderful I would not of changed a thing. We do hope to go back again and I would stay at the Marriott. Oh and after walking the beach every day I have to say their beach area is one of the best, not rocky or anything. The water was awesome. All in all I loved my trip to Aruba and very happy with my choice of Marriott Stellaris. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Mother's Day Getaway"
The hotel was lovely as well as our rooms. The staff at any station from reception to beach to housekeeping were all very pleasant and eager to assist you with any request. The cocktails were delicious as well as the breakfast buffet and the seafood buffet. The grounds of the hotel were well maintained.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel"
We had a partial ocean view room with 2 queen beds. It was plenty large enough for 2 adults and 2 college aged kids. Beds were comfortable. Hotel grounds were well manicured. The beach was not what I would consider crowded, and we never had a problem getting 4 chairs. We did not opt for the use of a palapa, so I can't speak for what it was like trying […] to reserve one. Various water sports opportunities are within walking distance on the beach. The water in front of the hotel is very clear and not rough at all. We took a snorkeling excursion that included 3 stops and lunch. The first stop was a bit out from the shore and the current was relatively strong, but the last 2 were nearer to shore and the current was not as strong (didn't feel the need to wear a life jacket on the last two). This hotel is located on the far end of the high rise hotel area and is about $25 taxi ride from the airport. It cost about $11 to go downtown. Paseo Herencia is a nice little shopping/dining area within walking distance, but anything else and you'll need a taxi, rental or bus. It's probably 1/2 mile or so, so that may be too far for some people to walk. You might consider renting a car for one day to see some sights, as well as to make a run to the grocery store. Eating is quite expensive on the island. Buying some snacks or dry breakfast items at the store could shave quite a bit off your expenses. Really enjoyed our trip. Take lots of sunblock!

"Nice Hotel on the beach"
We just got back from our stay here and it was a nice hotel right on the ocean. The room was large and spacious as was the bathroom and the elevators were fast. Main pool is nice but gets crowded and loud in the afternoon. The adult pool was peaceful all day every day and if you wanted to sit in a hut so you have shade you can, but they are all reserved […] permanently so to speak (which is not explained up front so when we saw one with no reserved sign and sat there we were shocked to be charged for it at the end of the day with no warning) and if you sit there it's $75 with a $50 credit for food/beverage. We also got chairs with an umbrella one day and that was ok too with no charge. The wait service at the pool/beach is almost non existent. If you want something just go to the bar your self. The palapas at the beach were great and we were able to get a free one for the following day by just going to the towel hut. There are a bunch of options for food at the hotel and the neighboring hotels but they are expensive. We were in Aruba 6 years ago and could easily get lunch for $15/for 2 and dinner for around $45-50/for 2. This time around two personal pizzas a soda and a beer was $45 for lunch. It was nearly impossible to get anything for lunch for less than $40-45 which is frustrating. $6 for a bottle of water is excessive and yes, you can drink the water in Aruba if you choose but being pregnant I didn't want to take any chances plus it's not very cold from the tap Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
