My spouse and I went to Aruba for the soul beach music festival and to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. Shayenne Diaz the rooms controller provided us with a really nice upgrade with an excellent ocean view. She also sent us a personalized card and a chocolate cake. The whole experience made us feel special.Genuine Expedia guest review
Fabulous hotel...4th visit. Will be back for sure!Genuine Expedia guest review
beautiful resort, great service from everyone except the direct service line from the hotel rooms is not the best (sometimes there is no answer) which is not an issue as you will then just walk over to front desk or concierge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One Happy Island"
Service was exemplary from the moment we arrived. We were here for a week and felt pampered the entire time. We spent most of our days at the adult pool, which was never overly crowded. A couple of times a day they have 2 for 1 signature drinks and it's libation time. We got into Aruba Ariba's and Miami Vice's. Although the posted pool regs state that […] chairs can not be saved in advance, the reality is that if you want particular chairs you get down to the pool early and lay a few bucks on the pool attendant who will set you up. Everything about this resort is top notch. Everything is well kept, the grounds are beautiful, the free exercise room is expansive, and the view from your balcony will hopefully make you forget your job and mortgage payment for a few days. We ate at one full service restaurant, La Vista, which was more than decent. A slight negative was the beach; although not bad, the sand lacked the fine powdery quality of Eagle Beach, which we experienced when we dined at Passions On the Beach. This was the one restaurant which we booked in advance, and were so glad that we had. Great experience. This was our first trip to Aruba. We came for the beach, but it was the friendly Aruban people that made the biggest impression. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
First time to Aruba. We did all our planning through the Mariott concierge. We're able to do everything we wanted. A tour with a submarine, jetskiing etc. We also rented our car through hertz that was also located in the lobby. The vehicle itself was just outside in Mariott's secure parking lot which was convenient. Great trip overall.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Just got back!"
We enjoyed our stay at the Aruba Marriott. We got very good service, and the room was nice, with a beautiful ocean view from our large balcony!Genuine Expedia guest review
Place is nice staff and all...the only thing is the cost for food is outrageous. so if you don't mind spending money then this is the place to go. I recommend Madame Janettes there food is awesome but worth the money and they give good portions.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay on a honeymoon!"
Our first visit to Aruba......we enjoyed every day, might, and minute we were here. The staff at the Aruba Marriott and Stellaris Casino were wonderful, Soooo friendly and accommodating. We answered a knock at poor short the second day we were there, to find a smiling staff member with beautifully decorated plate of chocolate dipped huge strawberries...from […] the management. In fudge, on the plate was Happy Honeymoon. E will definitely return for another visit to this Happy Island ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Aruba is the best island in the Caribbean!!!"
I love Aruba ad everything in it. From ATV tours to the natural pool, to catamaran snorkeling trips and De Palm private Island, this was the most enjoyable vacation ever! The Marriott has extremely friendly staff, great food and restaurants in and around the area. The rooms are a great size (King bed with balcony overlooking pool and partial ocean […] view) and hotel is situated right on Palm beach. I will definitely return and may even buy a timeshare there.

Excellent experience overall. I highly recommend this place. Gorgeous ambience/pool/surrounding areas/beach, etc. Wonderful & friendly staff. Classy resort. My only concern was not enough umbellas in pool area. So I stayed at beach under a palapa, which is worth reserving daily.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best hotel in aruba!!!!"
Great place, great service n great service!!! Cant wait to go againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Would not stay anywhere else!"
It was our fourth visit to Aruba and fourth time we stayed at the Marriot, it just gets better every time! We do think when the concierge makes a reservation for you and has a coupon for that restaurant, she should give it to you without you having to ask. We were told by people on the beach that they got coupons for various places but you have to ask.....we […] did not know that until the end of our visit so that was disappointing. The front desk was excellent, and very forthcoming with information regarding the hotel....more so than the concierge desk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel has a problem that there are not enough seats and shaded areas at either the pool or the beach. The hotel expects guests to wait in line for an hour, one day in advance to reserve a beach palapa. Another option is to pay a fee to rent a palapa. Even if you don't mind paying the fee, there is a three day maximum on renting/reseving palapas. […] Here is a better idea, maybe the hotel should put more umbrellas and chairs by the pool so there would be enough for the amount of guests. An even better idea would be to stay somewhere else altogether. The hotel has a beautiful beach location but is not well managed. The upside to this hotel is that the rooms are nice and very clean and reasonabley priced. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We were there for a family wedding. All of us choose different hotels to stay at while on the island. After seeing some of the other hotels we felt that the Marriott Stellaris was the best out of all that we seen. Our entire family wished they would have chosen this hotel to stay at. Fom the time we arrived we had excellent customer service. The staff […] greeted us with a complimentary drink and they were very helpfull with all of our questions. Also, evey day they came in & made up our room with fresh towels, bed linens etc. If you are looking for a great hotel, then this one is the one for you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
""Great hotel with extras""
We stayed for 5 nights at the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino. Our check-in was smooth and even though we arrive hours before check-in (we arrived at 11:30am and check-in does not start until 4pm), our room was available within 40 minutes. The room was spacious and comfortable, although, my one complaint was that the bed was too soft. We chose […] the Tradewinds meal package which included 3 meals, 1 snack and open bar from 6-9pm. All the meals were served buffet style with unlimited soft drinks, beer and water. The food was very good and varied from day to day which is a huge plus. Although we were able to eat anything they offered, we did meet a couple who had food limitations and they said the staff was accomodating and made them something else. We visited the adult-only pool several times, but the family pool just once. We were traveling without our children and really wanted to relax. We also made use of the beach several days of our stay. The Tradewinds package includes rafts (free of charge) and the use of a palapa on the beach which is basically a tropical style umbrella with a table attached along with 2 lounge chairs. We've always loved Aruba for the friendly atmosphere and amazing weather and now we have one other reason to return ..... the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino.

"Excellent Anniversary Celebration - Tradewinds"
We stayed here last week for an anniversary celebration, and found it to be excellent. I agree with the other reviewers who strongly recommend the Tradewinds Club (8th floor) rooms. There are enough complimentary meals/drinks/perks to easily jusify the extra cost of the room! We found the staff and grounds to be excellent everywhere. Service was prompt […] and friendly - no sign of folks operating on "island time" here! In terms of restaurants, we had an excellent experience at Simply Fish, but less so at La Vista - it was our most expensive dinner of the week, and our least satisfactory. Fine for families, maybe, because of the buffet format, but just not the best quality food the night we chose. Other than that, a very memorable vacation! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The marriott is in a great location, close to shops, restaurants, etc. I was a little disappointed about the size of the fridge in the room. I bought 3 regular size bottles of water and they did not fit in the fridge. Buying food, drink, etc at the Marriott is extremely expensive. It would have been nice to go to a nearby store and buy some things, […] but no place to keep cold. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Couples & Adults!"
My wife and I love the experience at this hotel, we had a relaxing, lovely, romantic stay, the staff and amenities where first class, the adults only pool oasis was heavenly. We are planning another trip back to the Marriott Stellaris. Aruba and the Marriott facilities lived up to and exceeded their reputation of "One Happy Island" A jewel!Genuine Expedia guest review

"good hotel,, but chair hoggers are a disgrace"
Our room was not ready when we checked in, but got an upgrade to a deluxe ocean view since we were patient, none whiny customers ;) rooms are clean...we also loved the fact that we could use the ocean club pool, but bummed that we could not use the surf n club pool due to capacity level. There were loads of pool/beach chair wars....but as long as you […] do not care to chair hog and actually only reserve what you actually use....worked out for our flexible, easy going family with no frustraition...good was great as well at any of the marriott restaurants...from pool side to beach side...just make sure to check the bill. There are different happy hour prices for selected items. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Attending a destination wedding at the hotel. Staff at all levels friendly and helpful. Room comfortable, well furnished and appointed. Pool and Beach area superb; quality food and beverages. Overall a most pleasing experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very Nice Hotel"
This hotel was one of the best I've ever stayed at. Every single staff member would smile and say hello to you every time they passed you in a hallway. Everything was kept clean, even the bathrooms in the lobby and by the pool which can often go overlooked. Things can be pricey in the hotel, but they are pricey in Aruba in general, so make sure you […] plan for it. The only thing I could see being a bother to people is the location. In the Palm Beach area, the Marriott Stelaris is the last hotel on the strip, so in order to get to where most of the downtown is, its going to be a 10-15 minute walk depending on you. In 85-90 degree weather it may affect some people so either spring the cash for a cab or be able for the walk. That's mostly for elderly people or those who have to lug kids all the way down there, could be a pain. For those who aren't elderly or who don't have kids it shouldn't be a problem. Other than that, it is a very nice, very well kept hotel, and staying there gives you access to 3 pools. 2 at the Stelaris and one at the Marriott ocean club right next door.

"Great hotel for a family or couple"
Stayed at the Marriott with my college age daughter for a week. We had a wonderful time. When I go back to Aruba, the Marriott will be my first choice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for a family vacation"
Went with just my wife and had a great stay. It is very family friendly but couples can still enjoy themselves. Highly recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were guaranteed a king bed , hotel had none upon our arrival. Food& drinks expensive . Weather great! Location great . Had to pre book beach hut day prior .Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel, good service. Staff is nice and helpful. The biggest issue is getting a palapa or cabana for the day. There is limited number and you have to reserve one at 4pm for the other day. The problem is people are lining up from before 3pm and you have to stay in line for hours. The food is overpriced but good in the hotel. There is a nice Cuban […] restaurant downtown with superb food and great atmosphere we can recommend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Stay at Marriott"
We had a very relaxing stay at the Marriott. Our Ocean View room was very comfortable, spacious and surprisingly quiet at night. Great to have 2 sinks in a vacation bathroom. The service and amenities were top notch. Doesn't hurt to have one of the island's best casinos in the hotel. Unfortunately, you can't get away from people getting up at dawn to […] save their poolside and beach spots with towels, but we were able to get good spots each day regardless. The only downside is that the hotel is the farthest north among the highrise hotels, but only a 10 minute walk or short cab ride to some shopping and restaurants. Overall, had a great stay at the Marriott. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrible casino and airport transportation"
This is the second or third time we have stayed at the Marriott aand we have been staying at Marriotts all over the world for the last 50 years We enjoyed this stay except for two things that happened on the last day. One the casino mixed up our play credits and just Ssimply refused to look into it and make any adjustments. We had played for 4 days […] and had lost about 500 dollars on slots and they said I only acummulated 500 points and had no credits in dollars. My wife played about the same amount and only had 50 points. Other Marriott casinos such as the one in StKitts are much friendlier. I will not return to this MAARRIOTT FOR THIS REASON. Secondly when we were ready to leave Palm tours left us at the hotel and we had to take a taxi to the airport. I am filing a complaint with expedia regarding this matter.

"GREAT ACCOMODATIONS, GREAT STAFF"
Wonderful Hotel stay. Its a beautiful hotel on the beach in the north end of the "High Rise section". about a 20 minute walk from the restaurants and shops in that area The rooms were nice and the grounds were immaculate. We had a minor issue with the electrical outlets not working in the bathroom, but everthing else was ok.

A complete, quiet and confortable place to stay in family, with several facilities and options for a funny vacations. The beach is so beatifult, I think it is the most beautiful in the island. Staff is so nice and helpul. Location also is good, near to shopping centers and downtown.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel on best beach strip"
Great hotel on the main strip of Aruba. Beautiful rooms and has everything you need including an adult pool area and tennis courts.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice but pricey"
The hotel grounds are beautiful. The pools and beach are perfect. We stayed in the premium ocean view room and the view was amazing. The room service was amazing. We ordered a few things over our week stay and it was such a treat. The cafe in the lobby is quite a hot spot. AMAZING desserts and donuts and sushi. My only complaint about the room is the […] pillow are horrible. They are down and they get super flat in 2 seconds. Also, the sheets are like sleeping on notebook paper. I would think the Marriott could afford some nicer sheets! There are just a couple things I would note for people looking to stay here: 1. it is at the very far end of the beach. Every service, food, drink, snack in and surrounding the hotel is very pricey. If you want to find more reasonable prices you have to walk down the beach a ways. If you take a cab anywhere it's more pricey since you are at the very far end of everything. Next time we would probably stay more in the Hyatt area. It's more in the middle of everything.

"Wonderful place to relax before the holidays"
My boyfriend and I spent six nights at the Marriott and had a wonderful stay. The amenities were wonderful and the staff was very friendly. As with most nicer resorts, the food was expensive, so we brought snacks and bought groceries for breakfasts and lunches and only went out to eat for dinner each night. If you're in the mood for a movie, a 3-D film […] at the nearby cinema was only $5.50 per person USD. The local shopping complex also seemed to have free entertainment in the center courtyard most nights. If you like iguanas, watch for the daily iguana feeding at the Marriott building next door where you can feed lettuce to them if you'd like - one of the highlights for the two of us who love animals!

"Another Great Stay at the Marriott Stellaris"
The room was clean. Hot water was abundant and the water pressure of the shower was good. The air conditioning was satisfactory although I'm not so sure that the room actually was 64 degrees as the thermostat stated. We were in a room that faced the construction(North) so the sun was not a factor with regard to heating the room. The in-room safe and […] mini-fridge functioned properly. The grounds are immaculate. The beach is large with many available recliners even for those not reserving the palapas. The condition of common facilities/services such as the gym, restrooms, ice machines, etc were all in good working order and very clean. The staff is very helpful as well.

"Wonderful vacation and hotel!!"
We had a great time spending Thanksgiving in Aruaba at the Marriott. The hotel and service was great, we have already booked another trip..A few hints. The junior suite is worth the extra money with the wrap around porch and ocean view. The tradewind package really isnt because everything else is so awesome. THe food and drinks are really pricey, mixed […] drinks 11.00 and sodas 4.00. So take a cab to superfoods and stock your room up. If you can pack a soft cooler than fill it when going to the beach or pool you will save alot. Getting the breakfast included is worth it (the buffet is 39.00 if you dont get it included). The good thing is breakfast is served until noon. She we ate at 11;00 and with the prime rib, ham, omlet station etc, we were full until dinner...well worth it. Local resturants for local food and good prices: Peanuts, and LeGranda..awesome. Also the cadamaran boat tours with snorkeling is awesome..open bar:)..Take a trip to baby beach...wonderful...Cab fares range from 22.00 from airport, 6.00-9.00 to local spots..take singles and fives....have fun!!

The Marriott Stellaris was a wonderful resort. The resort was clean and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. The staff was pleasant.

We would choose that resort again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Crowded over Thanksgiving weekend"
My wife and I stayed on the "Tradewinds" (club) floor. Our room was clean and bright but definitely not luxurious. Internet access was unreliable.

Other guests we spoke with indicated that it was no more crowded than most other Caribbean […] resorts. Hotel staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
