Great location in the heart of Oranjastad. Easy walk to great restaurants. Very clean. The staff were wonderful, especially Berlinda who helped us with restaurant reservations. There is no real beach unless you ferry out to the private island. The island is pretty, but windy. There were no beach chairs available and even more limited if you wanted one in the shade. At the Marina, there is a modest sized pool but no beach chairs available in the mid afternoon. There is music playing all day, so there is no place in the resort for peace and quiet except your room. The room was modest sized, but a bit dated. It was quite expensive.
The staff was friendly and remembered us during our stay. The room was comfortable and well equipped. There were many activities on premise which kept us busy, and the private island was beautiful. We enjoyed a couples massage and dinner for two package which was excellent. The location was right at a shopping mall and plaza with plenty to do, but it was further away from the main hotel area where the nightlife and many of our friends were staying. Taxi trips to meet our friends or go out started to add up over our stay.
There was nothing I did not like! Love love love the private island!!!!! Very contemporary hotel . Love it!!! Nothing
The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and attend to your every need.
The location is excellent, and access to activities through the city was very simple. Staff is very courteous, rooms were well maintained and clean. The pool area had DJ playing so loud that it was hindersome in the room in the afternoon and early evening. Pool is rather small and not enough places to relax during early evening hours. The rooms were pricey for the amenities provided. Staying at the Marriott on the west side of the island offers more amenities, larger room and less cost. But after all, it IS all about location, location, location, and the Rennaissance has it!
Wait staff was slow and not attentive at the bar at the hotel.
"Island View" does not mean a view of the private island. The front desk told me this means an island view as in Aruba is and island and you can view it.
Loved the location, type of people vacationing, the boat that leaves from the hotel lobby is one of a kind, the private island is so relaxing and beautiful, the staff is all friendly and eager to help, so glad we picked this resort! We had an issue with our room one night and the front desk assisted us with switching rooms.
Staff, size, parking
The layed back atmosphere and the accommodating staff. Beautiful garden/pool area. Very relaxing because of the atmosphere. Excellent breakfast (European style). Only stayed 1 night and wish we had stayed longer. Good location. Only wish we knew how lovely it was - we wish we could have stayed a couple more days. Next time FOR SURE!
it is a large home with a comfortable feel, beautifully decorated, peaceful and charming. Gaston, the owner, is very professional, as are his staff. Breakfasts very good. I enjoyed chatting with other guests as the atmosphere is relaxed and informal. The disadvatage is that it is a long way from the beaches and other attractions, activities. Bus service fair. I rented a car, failrly essential, but found the driving nerve wracking. Roundabouts everywhere and poor (absent) signage, lane markings, etc.
Wonders has a bed and breakfast atmosphere. We felt very welcome. Owner and staff make you feel right at home in their charming home. The breakfast is so delicious and filling. the owner aims to please all of his guests with any requests.
I Loved everything about Wonders.it felt like home.the host is great as well.I am going back and bringing my friends N/a
Very clean, very quiet location away from the typical resorts. Breakfast was incredible, pool was relaxing, and the entire place was gorgeous. Can't wait to make a return trip. Loved everything...nothing bad to say.
Off beaten path but overall great place very helpful staff. And bereakfsst
The room was spacious with a good working air-conditioner, the owner was pleasant and accommodating. He provided beach towels and snorkel equipment for use throughout our stay. The bathroom was clean and nice. The location is not close to the beach or to eating establishments. The area around the hotel was residential. A vehicle is highly recommended to get to the beach and eating establishments.
I chose not to stay there!! Very dangerous location. Bars on all parts of the building. Looked like a city jail.
This hotel is beautiful-- it's well-decorated and inviting. The staff there help you in any way possible, and really try to make your visit an incredible one. It really has an authentic feel to it, but you have absolutely everything you could need. I loved everything about it. It's not an all-inclusive resort and it's located in a real neighborhood of Aruba (it isn't beachfront), but it's safe and we really enjoyed getting to see more of the 'less-touristy' side of Aruba.
The room we had looked fresh and clean. All the appliances worked. The free WiFi was fast. The room had no smell , the A/C worked well. The balcony was adequate with a nice view from our room. The hotel was in a good location close to lots of amenities . Considering the price we paid . There was nothing we did not like about this establishment.
