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

"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
It was a very nice stay and the hotel was beautiful and the staff very friendly. Definitely, worth staying as the pool is very clean and bar nice. The beach is very nice as well. Going there again for sure!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good hotel with nice amenities and excellent staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
the adult pool is the best place in the world! it's at the end of the beach hotels, so it's quieter than most and a less rowdy crowd. hotel drinks and food are absolutely absurdly priced. the local restaurants are better and more than half the price!Genuine Expedia guest review
Upon check in the staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was very inviting. On site dining was convenient and great. A little pricey but it's to be expected "on site". We paid extra for premium ocean front and the view was great. However, I think any room view would be good-maybe blocked a little by the beautiful palm trees.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The TRADE WINDS Club an absolute!"
We went to Aruba for the first time this June. Unsure as to were to go or stay I gravitated to the Marriott Hotel. That worked out well. The Trade Wind Club upgrade made the trip a perfect experience for my wife and myself. Sorry no Kids allowed. The Club gives you the following. 1. Nice full breakfast with bacon and eggs and fruit. 2. a light healthy […] lunch always salad with side sandwiches. 3. Open bar each night from 6-9pm with top shelf liquors and wine 4. Heavy Dinner samplings including shrimp/ filet mignon/ crab cakes and much more that you can make your meal for the evening or eat light and taste the local cuisine. The upgrade to the Club made the experience very nice for my wife of 15 years and myself. We also had access to a private area on the beach / floats for our use and ice cold bottled water whenever we wanted it . Hermina (the keeper of the Private Trade Winds Beach) was fun and colorful and She took care of you as you get lazier each day on the beach. The work out facility was nice as well and we used this every day---to justify our wine habit at nights-Safe Fun and Romantic the perfect place to go. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"So glad we switched hotels"
We were planning on staying at a different hotel & switched days before our trip because a friend recommended this hotel. Couldn't have been happier. Great beach. Great food. Good casino (we're from Vegas so it's hard to compare).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great overall hotel"
Great hotel for families and couples. We recently celebrated our anniversary and spent most of our days at the adult only pool. Nice and quiet. Overall great stayGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location! Nice hotel with great ocean views"
We stay here every year. This was our 3rd year and every year we are greeted with refreshing tropical drinks, smiles and great service. The location is great and within walking distance to the local happs or you could just stay in the Casino/hotel/pool/gym.Genuine Expedia guest review
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

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.

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
