"Accessible to all places and restaurants you want"
Very very nice place and nice people and staff...can't wait to go back.Genuine Expedia guest review
I loved this hotel. The hotel staff was excellent. We ask for a complimentary room upgrade and the staff was very accommodating. The staff at this hotel as well as the restaurants and beach were all very good. They really know how to make you feel special from the way the talk to you to the way they accommodate you. For my wife and I this stay with […] Marriott gave us "Hotel Happiness". Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Has a casino and Ruth Chris steak house. Taxi's are always available whenever and wherever you need. Great hotel staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel, Bad Location."
We had done the Marriott Rewards Tour and they had said it would be no more than 90 minutes. They had also said they wouldn't be pushy and to give them a "yes or no" answer but had continued to push and the tour had lasted for over two hours. We felt extremely offended and uncomfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very good hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great resort. Meals and drinks a little expensive. Staff really helpful and friendly.Would definitely stay here again. Would be great if they offered an all-inclusive package.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel in Aruba"
It is a good hotel, probably the best in Aruba, but if you have traveled around you will find this hotel is just OK. Has a very nice pool area, though no children pool. The beach area is beautiful and the ocean is calm as a pool, very nice. Staff is well trained but the language difference creates a gap because they are not fluent in Spanish or English […] so sometimes you might get a hard time trying to get yourself understood. Food is very very expensive, specially considering the quality, it is not that good. We had dinner at the famous steakhouse Ruth Chris Steak House which is located at the hotel and after they just couldn't get the steak at the ordered term, and even though the staff was very accommodating for a fifty dollar plate you would expect it to be perfect. The hotel condition is ok, some places are being renovated so it might be a little uncomfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

amazing hotel! had thebest 5 day trip! glad we stayed here!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel next to beach"
Easy check in/out, good all round service as expected from Marriott. Disappointed with cleanliness of room given room rate night and Marriott brand. Some things (coffee machine, mugs) clearly hadn't been cleaned properly (dust) otherwise all was good. Went during 1st week of Sept so it wasn't that busy - was able to get good locations on beach and by […] pool with relative ease (will have to be willing to wake up early to secure best locations though - I was 5th in line @ 6:30am on 9/7; on early day we chose to turn up late and take what was available).

"Beautiful hotel and location"
We stayed the Aruba Marriott for six days, it was a beautiful resort. The staff were all so nice and helpful. The beach is gorgeous and we were always able to find a place to put the beach chair. The palapas get occupied quick, but that didn't bother me. Everything on the property food/beverage wise is quite expensive but I was expecting that.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Loved, Loved, Loved It!"
We found everything to our satisfaction and more. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. We ate at Simply Fish for their sunset dinner and it was fabulous. Waves by the beach was very good for lunch. Try their beer-battered grouper tacos. We also enjoyed the casino, and the staff all over the hotel was very accomodating. Take advantage of happy hours […] for 2 for 1 drinks.

"Unbelievable time in Aruba!!"
Awesome destination, hotel and staff. We originally had the vacation booked elsewhere and decided it wasn't what we expected. We contacted Expedia by phone and within 5 minutes we were told to check out, grab a cab and check in to the Marriott! We stayed in the Marriott Marco Island last year and it was terrific. This property was equally great! Aruba […] is absolutely beautiful! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel is not on the main strip"
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted with fruity drinks as we were checking in. The staff was friendly, and the food was good at all the restaurants. The only think I didn't like is that I saw three cats while there, and I am terrified of them although they didn't bother you. That would have definitely been a deal breaker […] had I known before. The hotel is about 10 minutes walking distance to the main strip. Overall I had a nice and enjoyable stay at this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great staff, but dated rooms"
Let's start with the staff. By and large - with only one exception - the staff were great. Front line, gift shop, restaurant - really nice staff. Location was great - on Palm Beach, walking distance to other resorts (and a shopping area, if you walked on the BEACH side), and just a short taxi ride from "downtown" (don't bother). Sadly, the room was […] just not the best. The carpet was tan but still showed its age. The "ocean view" really looked over the adult pool (meaning it had a bar), with the ocean in the background. The staff cleaned well but the room needs updating and better lighting. Also worth noting - Aruba is a desert. Don't expect lush greenery off the hotel premises. Finally, the casino - very small by American standards and there is no "no smoking" area. Too, the machines were not clean, even by casino standards. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ocean View was awesome"
We had a wonderful stay at Aruba Marriott. Really clean and comfortable room. Partial Ocean view was cool. Adults pool was really quiet and relaxing. However if you have kids the regular pool is great (with water falls and swim bar, etc.,). Reserving a beach side Palappa was a little difficult, but we managed to find one. Marriott owns 2 restaurants […] -- "Simply Fish" (sunset dinner) and "La Vista". Great food in both places. I'd definitely recommend staying here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very clean and nice hotel"
Love the view and experience ...everything was great thereGenuine Expedia guest review
"Late check in!"
Overall enjoyed our stay. Hotel very clean and the staff is very nice. We got to the hotel at 3pm and check in time was 4 pm. Our room was not ready until 630pm. The hotel staff said 'sorry' but did not do enough to rectify the situation. The safe in the room broke and I had to spend 2 hours during my vacation getting it fixed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in Aruba"
This hotel was really a great experience. You may find that once you get there, you rarely leave as the resort generally has everything you need. There are several good restaurants across the cost spectrum (including Simply Fish on the water). The staff was great. It was girlfriend's birthday and they went out of their way to make her happy. Highly […] recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The service was excellent, polite, food was great but a bit on the expensive side.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The hotel was great"
This hotel was great, its right on the beach. Its has great restaurants. if you don't have kids they have a pool that its only for adults. I hope to go back some day and I would definitely stay here again. Staff are very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was our first trip to Aruba. We could not have been happier with the staff and the location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel awesome beach"
Stayed 5 nights. Great food, very friendly staff, right on the beach. The rooms were roomy, clean, and included all that one would need to have a great experience. Plenty of towels for the beach and pool and there was always a place in the sun to lay out, read a book, or just watch the beautiful women. There is a casino on site if that is your thing. […] There is smoking in the casino, so if you want to gamble, then that is part of the price. Plenty of pennyslots to have a good time without losing your shorts. There are tables for the serious gambler, a well. The concierge made available just about any type of excursion you might want to experience. We took the De Palm snorkeling tour on a 70' catamaran and had a great time. nother excursion we went on was the De Palm jeep tour of the island. 7 hours of total fun. A Blast! Great, knowledgeable driver made the day for us. Will Go back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK!!!!"
The hotel and it's staff were great!! The room was immaculate and the staff responded to any of our requests immediately!! The grounds of hotel were beautiful!! When I go back to Aruba, this is the only hotel I will stay in.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Absolutely beautiful room with an exceptional view"
I cannot wait to go back to Marriott Stellaris Aruba next year. It was such a wonderful experience to stay in such a beautiful place. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and the cleanliness of the hotel and our room was excellent. The grounds of the hotel were also beautiful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"This is a nice hotel to stay, but needs updates"
We just came back from Aruba for my friend's wedding, stayed at Marriot stellaris for 5 nights. Originally paid for a ocean view room, which it wasn't available when we arrived, so they gave us a pool view room and $250 credit. The room was nice and clean, but needs new carpet through the hotel, carpet looks old, and not too clean. The swimming pool […] is ok, not as big as other hotels and there is only one. It does not have a kids section and the pool bar closes too early. There are only 2 restaurants which are kind of too expensive for the food they offer, very small menu, not too many options during the day. Breakfast buffet was pretty good, but there is no other restaurant at the hotel for a change. No entertaiment at all, there was only one night that a group offer some music, but it was for a very short time. No activities for kids and the game room for kids was very hot and humit and the game machines had only super old games not to mention that we had to buy tokens $1.00 per game, one machine was not working and my son lost his money, nobody was around to help. I like to use a supervise cooling room close to the pool for kids, so they can take a nap or play for a little bit while parents can still enjoy, a daycare room. I've stayed in many hotels where they have this facility and it is great for babies, toddlers and small kids. I also requested nanny services for the night of the wedding and the hotel does not provide the service. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful pools and hotel is right on the beach"
Our stay could not have been better! Great staff and the resort is so beautiful! The adult pool was so tranquil and peaceful. The lobster buffet at La Vista restaurant was worth every penny. The De Palm Tours snorkeling trip was such a great time with free drinks and lunch! The 24 hr cafe in the lobby is excellent. I would recommend this hotel to all […] my family and friends!

My wife and I decided on Aruba for our honeymoon and we wouldn't change anything about our stay. The staff at the hotel was so friendly we actually felt like we were staying at a family members home rather than a hotel. The restaurants were outstanding especially La Vista's breakfast buffet. Simply fish was outstanding and eating dinner beachside was […] gorgeous. I recommend the hotel to people with small children, Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Could have been a 5"
This hotel should have been a 5, overall the staff was very nice an accommodating there were a few staff members that could tell my wife and I were just middle class people on our honeymoon and paid us no mind while they went out of there way to take care of the big fish. The beds in the room are not all that comfortable but they will do. The only other […] problem and its not directly the hotels fault, is that some of the guest would go out in the morning and put towels of the lounge chairs sometimes taking as many as 8 chairs when there is only 2 people so they get to pick where they want to sit hours later when they came back.

The Marriott complex (Hotel, Surf & Ocean Clubs) were great. Great location, not too busy at that end, nice pools, good food, great service. Would stay here again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel more designed for older kids >16."
Nice hotel with excellent staff. The hotel is more geared towards adults and late teens. The surf club next store is more designed for young kids and families. The buffet food is OK and pretty high in price for the selection. The drinks at the pool bar are high in price ($12 for cocktail and $8 for a can of beer). The prices in Aruba are generally 2x […] the cost of US products. The casino pay out rate is low, not many winners while we were their. Overall hotel and stay was nice.

"Terrific 1st visit to Aruba."
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Marriott Stellaris. The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly especially Carlos and Irma, Rhyan and George from the kitchen staff at the LaVista. I will stay at the Marriott again when I return to Aruba. The food and drinks at Champions Bar and Grill were very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful views although the beach could not be enjoyed Huts and chairs reserved by families that never used them. Hotel very clean and great amenities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Aruba, indeed a happy island"
My family and I were greeted with complementary cool cloths and their signature Aruba Ariba drink. Refreshing after our 4.5 hr. flight from NYC. Staff was super friendly, Marriott Stellaris was absolutely lovely. The grounds, beach and pool area were well maintained, a lot like other Marriott Resorts. The prices were kinda steep but the great service […] and excellent food and drinks made it well worth the $$$! Also, they offer a free shuttle to Marriott Surf across from a Mall where you can eat cheap at Iguana Cantina, nibble on a cupcake, get temp tattoos, pick up supplies at the market or be entertained by dancer or fountain show. Only downside was waking up at 6AM to reserve a palapa when the hut opens at 7AM, there are very few available for free and by the water (bring bug spray). Water is calm and clear! We were star struck when Chalmers of Miami Heat showed up with his family and agreed to take pictures with us, nice guy! Overall, one of the best family vacations I have ever had. My husband and I actually talked about retiring there! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff"
8 day 7 seven night stay. Booked and premium ocean view room. But was initially placed in a partial ocean view room but situation was fixed promptly. Recommend you rent a car if you are going into town frequently. 11 dollar flat rate for cab each way, 25 to airport and restaurants near by.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, easy beach and pool access"
Very nice facility. Staff very accommodating throughout the complex. Nightlife was so-so having below average entertainment in the lobby at night. But it was easy to walk down the beach to find more lively places. As one might expect, prices for food and drink were fairly high but not out of the ordinary for the area. Pool was great, they kept it clean […] and comfortable. Swim up bar was a nice touch. Beach accessibility was excellent. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place, family friendly"
The hotel in all was a very pleasant, room was very clean. Pool was in tip top shape. No microwaves available in any room and hotel staff will not microwave any food for you. Bus transportation was the preferred method, $2.30 per person right in front of hotel. Highly recommend going to restaurant district which is about 4 hotels away for breakfast […] and dinner, thought the prices were a bit outrageous at the hotel. Lunch is priced fair at the hotel.

"A worth while family hotel...but!"
The overall hotel stay was nice - we had water leakeage from the air conditioner on the floor and in bathroom - but once reported it was taken care of. Coming from the West Coast to Aruba - our flight was long and the information center reps at the hotel advised there was no breakfast served after 11:30 am - We found several local places - within walking […] distance that served breakfast all day - We were told that management's goal is to keep the money at the hotel and not at share with local vendors. FYI...the vendors offer more competitive pricing, BE WARE!!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, great location"
Process around booking beach chairs is little bit odd and you have to wait in cue. Everything else was perfect!Genuine Expedia guest review
Everyone was friendly and warm, except for casino staff. The lobby smelled smoky, but I guess it's expected with the casino there. Tradewinds was nice, but next time I'll stay in a regular room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel was nice, overall, the beach was clean"
We arrived at 12:00 noon and we were able to go right to our room. It enabled us to spend a day at the beach. The restaurants were very good and the staff was courteous and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The perfect place to stay!"
I have no complaints about my stay here. The staff are exceptional and ready to help with anything. They offer so many services, I would have had to stay a month to take advantage of them all!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Outstanding Hotel with Great Facilities"
My wife and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary by spending four days at this hotel. It was fantastic! The accommodations are outstanding and the hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful. With two pools and the beach to choose from, there is plenty of opportunity to just relax and enjoy the warm weather. The restaurants on site are all great […] and very convenient. Meals are expensive in Aruba, but you'll probably find, as we did, that the portions are so large that you really can't eat three meals every day. We had a light breakfast at the breakfast bar located in the lobby, and saved our appetite for our evening meal. There are always taxis outside the main entrance to take you wherever you might want to go, and the public bus also has a stop right outside the main property entrance. We used both during our stay and they are both reasonably priced and very convenient. I have travelled on business for over thirty-two years and have never had a bad stay at a Marriott. This Marriott ranks as one of the best I've ever had the pleasure to stay at. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice quiet hotel"
I loved this hotel.It was very clean and the staff were so friendly.I wanna especially thank Beverly from the reception desk,she really went out of her way to put a smile on my daughter's face and mines.I also would like to thank Suzy for giving me some helpful hints on activites to do and restaurants to go to during my stay.I enjoyed the adults only […] pool and I loved the dinner at Simply Fish restaurant,which was on the beach.The only problem was the rooms being cleaned so late in the day. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was very nice and clean. However, was very surprised that they charged extra for the chairs and umbrellas on the beach. Every other resort we have stayed at this was included. So, we ended up spending more time at the pool and sitting on the beach later in the afternoon without any shade. Also, at other resorts we stayed at, there has been […] music playing at the pool. There were a few afternoons where there was music but for the most part, there wasn't any. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel on the beach."
I had a good experiece at the hotel, and the employees were very accommodating and courteous.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful, outstanding, extremely accomodating"
Our 5 night stay was wonderful. We could not have asked for or hoped for anything more. I am handicapped. I use a walker but also have an electric scooter for long distances. This hotel was outstanding for handling my needs. On the beach there was a "hut" that was marked as "handicapped". It was next to an accessible path which lead onto an 8 ft. wood […] plank area where I was able to "park" my scooter for the day. But the bigger surprise was that the hotel had a beach wheelchair! My husband was able to wheel me right down to the water! It was fantastic! It made my vacation so much easier and so enjoyable! The front desk staff, the concierge desk, the bellhops were all so friendly and did everything to help us with whatever we needed. Even the staff in the health club helped me to use the exercise equipment! I would highly recommend this hotel (handicapped or not!) and I would definitely stay in the Marriott Stellaris on our next vacation in Aruba. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Love the beach"
Palm beach is beautiful but the stellaris area of palm beach was even more beautiful. The beach huts were nice and they had a very effective way of making sure people wouldn't fight for them. The hotel was outstanding, the staff throught out the resort were very friendly. The one thing I think they can improve on is the cleaning service, the maids were […] slow and lazy. Some days at 4pm they would start to clean my room an not even clean it good, they wouldn't replace the towels everyday even if I asked. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Excellent staff. Very friendly. Great location. Outside of town just the proper distance for privacy and yet close enough to walk.Genuine Expedia guest review
