We have been to many places in the Carribean and the Aruba Marriot Stellaris is tops on the list.Dinner at Simply Fish was the highlight of our stay, eating on the beach with the ocean 10 foot away with great music, so good we ate there twice. The hotel, beach and staff made this a vacation to remenber, Will be back next year. Thank you Marriot Stellaris.
The Holiday Inn in Aruba was awesome. The staff and hotel services were very customer focused. Can't wait to come back again. Very convenient, on time, and no worries. It was also comforting to see hotel security throughout the entire resort. The beach was beautiful. Although there was a lot of people, there was plenty of room to swim and relax. The resort has a lot to offer. I was even surprised to find quiet locations to catch a quick nap.
We chose the Riu Antillas All-Inclusive Adult Only for our honeymoon and just got back last night! Weeks before leaving, we read hundreds of mixed reviews on the hotel's new construction and how it is not up to par with the Riu Aruba or other hotels nearby. We debated on whether to change hotels but decided to just stick with it and make the best of our vacation. Best decision for the honeymoon so far. From the minute we arrived to the minute we checked out, everything exceeded our expectations. The staff was wonderful and always happy to help. The food from their variety of restaurants were amazing. Two of the restaurants (Krystal and Malmok) require reservations for dinner so I recommend you do that as soon as you get there, otherwise they get booked up fast. Even though the restaurants are all inclusive, I also recommend trying out a few local restaurants around the area to have a true taste of Aruban cuisine.
We spent the first few days going on excursions and the rest of the week just relaxing on the beach and pool. The beach cabana huts are free to use but they also get booked up fast. My husband runs out there at 6-7AM every morning to reserve one and we just leave our towels on there to keep our cabana reserved throughout the day as we leave to go eat or shop. Bring plenty of sunscreen! We looked up the weather a few days in advance and it said rain every day, but we didn't see one drop of rain the entire week we were there. Perfect weather every day!
Thank you to Martin for helping us with our check in and making sure that all went well..
This was our second visit and we loved everyday there. The rooms is big and well kept. The resort is well kept.
The beachfront is beautiful and plenty of lounge chairs to sit in.
We really liked the Italian restaurant, Great waiter Francisco, was very attentive to us.
We had good meals at all the other restaurants too. At the Palm restaurant, a big thank you to Eugene, he too was very attentive to us.
I have stayed at this property several times and always have loved the great beach, attentive service and wonderful amenities. If you like a spa, they have it. If you like beach yoga, they have it, If you need exercise equipment, they have it.
