Loved The Whole experiencience! Staff, location, amenities, restaurants, you name it I'll be coming back for sure!
Friendly staff, food was good, bars were great, the beach is beautiful, the room was great. The Royal Club is a nice touch. We waited a while for our luggage and no rules were implemented for holding chairs at the pool or palapas at the beach so we often didn't get one.
The beddings where not clean and the rooms are small.
Good location, spacious rooms, good bathroom and hotel areas, nice casino, nice lobby, the fruit and the croissants was good. Beds and pillows sucks, food sucks, juices from concentrate, A/A and DVD player doesn't work and they never sent anybody, rooms door are like paper. No KIDS area in the pool!!!!!!. Aaaaand free WiFi just works at the lobby area and sucks, if you want WiFi in other areas you have to pay a lot per day and if you pay the service still poor. Guys 2015 you need better WiFi or people will not stay at the hotel!!!!!!
I stayed at the occidental for my honeymoon. I was married at a different hotel (Manchebo) right before this stay and then moved over to the occidental for the honeymoon. The pool was wonderful. The water was warm, swim up bar had very friendly staff and the drinks never ended. The beach is very close to the hotel and if you didn't plan on leaving the hotel, it was a perfect distance. There was also a bad on the beach within feet from the water which was very useful. They let you rent these rafts to float on ( which very very relaxing) however they needed to be returned by 4pm or they charged you 76 dollars??? I didn't like the hotel as an overall. The beach front view was a partial view (they all are) unless you paid for a suite. That was a huge bummer for me. I paid the extra money to see the beach but had to look OVER the palm trees to see some ocean. The food was HORRIBLE. So bad that on my last night I left the hotel to pay for dinner because I was so sick and tired of th horrible food. For an all inclusive, this is a huge let down. There are much better hotels on ththe island with much better food than the occidental. Wifi: their "free wifi" is only in the lobby and you only get one hour. I had 30 people staying at various hotels and I desperately needed to communicate with all of them to arrange tours etc so I ended up paying an extra 70 dollars to have wifi in my room for the week. Then, it was spotty at best. I had to restart my phone over and over again just to get it to work. (I have an iPhone 6plus, not an old phone by any means) When we checked in, they gave me and my husband honeymoon t shirts, but then gave us a room with two twin beds. This is after they went to check on the room! This is my honeymoon, and you knew it was, but you put is in different beds??? So we had to switch rooms To an even worse view. It was frustrating. The Riu next door was so much better last year. Better food and better views. Same money. I would stay there over occidental any day.
All Inclusive Food selection could have been better.
The people's kind was excellent
nice pool, location & easy access to the beach
When it says all inclusive it was truly all inclusive, you could book a trip to this hotel, and not spend another dime the entire trip if you wanted. One of the best resorts I've ever stayed in. The pool closed at 7pm daily, which was very strange to me, I've never stayed anywhere that the pool closed so early every night, and most resorts let their pool stay open 24 hours. And due to the alcohol being free there isn't a huge selection of brands to choose from, but it was still a great place.
The food was excellent, beach was great. Better than baby beach! Room was great but could be a little cleaner. We we're transferred from 6th to 18th floor and it was much better. Amazing view. No kids! Pool and beach was loud for too long- I think it went from 11am to 6pm... This place was expensive for $600/night. Loved every not of it except the price. Booking the restsurabts was a pain bc the only way you can reserve is waiting in line for 30-45 minutes and you aren't guaranteed and table.
It's really worth it The room service menu is too short and simple, bathroom could be better
I am so soured by my bad experience, I refuse to rate any part as good. I purchased an item for my girlfriend and left it wrapped in tissue paper in a ziplock bag on a table. It disappeared. I contacted housekeeping supervisor and was told it was impossible that it was stolen/thrown away. Not satisfied with that answer I asked to speak to the hotel manager, I'm still waiting. Terrible customer service experience which will cost this chain my business forever.
The location was good, the pool and beachfront was nice. This hotel is a standard two star hotel. I had maintenance in my room each day of my stay for a problem, safe repeatedly would not open, A/C would not cut off, toilet backed up. It was just a horrible stay. Some of the food was cold and not labeled so with allergies I could not eat a lot of things. A lot of the staff did not speak even a little English so when you asked a question that just smiled. I spoke to the manager and the best he could do is give me an email to report the issues when I return. I think you get the picture...so needless to say the hotel stay part of my birthday was ruin
My husband, I and our 2 boys just returned from our stay at the Hyatt-Aruba, and we can't wait to go back! It was everything we dreamed it would be and more. The grounds are beautiful, the pool is amazing, the hotel is lovely and the staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. The only bad thing is we never want to stay anywhere else now!
The best hotel on palm beach. We had a great time. Not one complaint.
Hyatt I would say is the best hotel in the high rise hotels area. It has an amazing beach front with lots of fun for family, honeymooners and retired folk.
Our family of four enjoyed our stay at the Hyatt! Beautiful property, centrally located and lots of fun! I let my 7 year old choose our hotel for this Aruba vacation ... she picked the Hyatt from the photos of the room (big beds) and the slide! The slide (and slide races) are so much fun!. At times it seemed the adults were enjoying it more than the kids. Poolside BINGO and pool volleyball were also a big hit. As for the beach, it's gorgeous - and you can call ahead to reserve a palapa ($35/day) so you won't have to wake at the crack of dawn. The staff (for the most part) were friendly. Some more so than others. We walked passed the other hotels we were contemplating (Marriott and Radisson) and I feel we made the best choice going with the Hyatt! The Marriott beach was not as nice and the guests looked like they were packed in like sardines. The Radisson (which we stayed in and liked) was nice and the Happy Hour crowd seemed to REALLY be enjoying themselves, but the Hyatt was def. nice...
Just got back from our vacation. Great trip, perfect spot to stay on Palm Beach. Close to shopping areas, really clean hotel. Great for kids. Very relaxing!!!!
BEAUTIFUL pool and beach area. We did appreciate that there were not a lot of children in the pool area. Palms restaurant offered a delicious veggie wrap and margaritas. Staff was responsive and polite although the check in/out process was slow. While I would recommend this hotel over any of the nearby competitors (NO comparison in the pool and lounge areas) I HIGHLY recommend that if you would like to enjoy cocktails or beer at pool or beach that you walk two hotels down where the SAME beer and drinks were HALF the price. They also give you something to carry them back in. While we expected food and drinks to be pricey $8.95 PLUS service fee for a 7 oz beer was insulting. $15 for a piña colda in a plastic cup.
We stayed for one week at the Hyatt and I'm glad we picked Hyatt over the Radisson. Hyatt was a beautiful hotel, had a gorgeous lobby and impressive view of the beach from the lobby area. The gardens, pools, bar and access to the beach were perfect. It is close to shops, restaurants and Starbucks. The staff were courteous and attentive especially the bell desk staff. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely stay at the Hyatt again.
The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, however my stay was not up to the par of a Hyatt hotel. Was not told prior to booking that several of the restaurants would be shut down and under construction, which also meant jack hammering all day every day right next to the pool. The beach cleaning left a lot to be desired. Could have done a much better/ earlier beach sea weed clean up. Also the over all cleanliness of the beach could have been better (trash,etc). Also expected beach service for food/drinks but Hyatt does not offer this. They offer this service at the pool, but good luck finding a waitress. Biggest complaint is the lack of adult only pool area. At such a hugh end expensive resort, there NEEDS to be a quite place for adults to swim without other peoples kids smacking them in the face with a volleyball or splashing, screaming, and crowding the swim up bar. Not relaxing. Over all the friendly staff, central location, and updated decor was the best. However, it was just k...
love aruba first off, you cannot beat the Hyatt or Radisson properties
My husband and I have travelled to Aruba many many times, but this is the first time we stayed at the Hyatt because it was our honeymoon. The grounds here are absolutely beautiful; however, the staff wasn't as friendly as other hotels that we have stayed at, nor were the other guests. The drinks were unreasonably expensive especially considering their size! Daily breakfast was excellent, but the other restaurants failed to WOW us. Not much of a selection and perhaps we are spolied because we have been to the island so many times and know where to find the good food. Overall, I finally took the plunge and stayed here; however, I'll take the cheaper hotels anyday! We like the homey feel of the smaller hotels...the Hyatt just seemed to stuffy for us. Would not stay here again...value for the money was not worth it.
The hotel has an free wifi only at the cafe. The internet I had to pay for was terrible. The hotel was nice enough to credit me, but I would really just like wifi that works well throughout the hotel.
We stayed at the Hyatt for our Honeymoon. We were very pleased with our decision. This hotel is located in the High-Rise district and is right in the middle of everything you could need. You have restaurants, shopping, and beach all right there! No need for a rental car. Our absolute favorite part of where this hotel is located is the beach. It is located on a SWIMMABLE beach which was so important to us! The hotel has many nice amenities- fitness center, pool, jacuzzi, spa, shops, etc. The staff are friendly and the rooms are clean. The only thing I wish our room had was a balcony. We were in a partial ocean view room, but only a few of the larger rooms at Hyatt have a balcony. Regardless, we loved the Hyatt and would recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Aruba!
The computer system had gone out the day before we left. We were told we could not check out because they were doing their audit. Also we asked for a wake-up call, which we never recieved.
Relaxing,great vieuw, romantic, nice hotel, great entertaiment,easy to find, all of all it was a great hotel didn't expect it was that nice They way you have to deal with the inventory form the staff should tell about it or take the inventory with the guest for the mis understanding because there was no superviser when you needed
This hotel is located as the first one in the zone of "High Rise Hotels" meaning that this zone contains the high buildings, being this spectacular because you have a wonderful view of the nicest ocean I've ever seen. I reccommend it widely.
I've been there twice, and will be heading back early December. The hotel is very nice and the people are friendly. I've never had any problems with bugs like the other person mentioned. The one thing you have to understand about Aruba is the people there are not in any hurry to do anything! If you go to a restaurant and order a burger... it'll probably take a half hour before you get it.They have a very laid back and relaxed attitude about everything. The best policy is just to join them, take deep breath, and slow everything down for a while. That's what vacations are about anyway. Not a great place for teens/early 20 somethings. It's not a party hotel. The hotel is definitely geared towards adults and they won't tolerate wild parties that disrupt their other guests. Oh, I'd recommend going over your hotel bill very carefully. It's not uncommon to find mistakes where a snorkeling boat or such charged your room by mistake. That's all over Aruba, not just this hotel. Also avoid the c...
We just came back on 11/02 Hotel is nice, rooms are clean, staff is very attentive. Unfortunately, our vacation was ruined by the mosquitos. They were everywhere: at the beach, in the sand, at the pool area. We were bitten mercesly. ''Off'' repellent did not help-do not waste your money
We stayed 5 nights and the hotel informed us that they were going to cut off our air in our room. We had to be in the room between 8am-9am so they could cut it off or they would cut the whole power to the room. The air would be off till 10pm to repair a broken pipe. My kids were hot and couldn't sleep. 10 came and no air. 11 came and called the desk and they said 15 minutes. At 12:15 am they came knocking on the door to turn the air back on. The hotel then sent a card saying sorry and a cheap bottle of wine. How is wine going to help my kids sleep. My wife and me don't even drink wine.
THE LOCATION IS GOOD BUT GETTING HERE IS A LITTLE DIFFICULT ATTENTION OWNER LEAVES MUCH TO BE DESIRED, BY OUR STAY WAS HORRIBLE PLUMBING PROBLEMS SOLVED OR WE NEVER OFFERED NO SOLUTION AND MUCH LESS AN APOLOGY
Very kind and helpful staff! Good experience FYI no hot water
-loud partying after hours, with no hotel staff to control-worn out linens, towels, blankets, beds, furniture-doors defective-dated air conditioner-further from beach than is advertised-
Walkable to everything (even though we still had a car and drive lots). Easy to walk to to breakfast/dinner everyday. We didn't reserve a renovated King room but were given it at no cost. I didn't have much staff interaction but was impressed with them when I did. I also liked to see how thoroughly the pool was cleaned daily. It's an older resort but I feel like they've spent money updating the important things. Incredible value for what we paid. Very, very cold AC in the room. Unfortunately there was an international youth baseball tournament in Aruba the same week we were there. Just about every rowdy kid was staying at the Mill. I don't fault the Mill. They apologized for the Inconvience and did what they could to seperate us from them.
The staff was friendly. Air conditioner leaked on the tile floor that made everything slick. Called for maintenance the first day, he said it was fixed, but it still leaked. He used our pool towel to soak up the water. Tried to get it replaced the next day at the front desk, they had to make several calls to confirm our story.
The hotel was walking distance from the beach but was behind a road and and entire hotel complex from the beach. The hotel only has free wifi near the restaurant. People seemed to gather outside the restaurant for free wifi. The house keeping was also extremely inconsistent. The number and type of towels varied from day-to-day. We also didn't have toiletries or glasses in the room until day three. The room also had to remain fairly air conditioned to prevent substantial condensation which wouldn't have been an issue except the blankets on the bed were not sufficient in that condition. Finally, the hotel had no record of the reservation I had made through kayak and even when presented with confirmation information were reluctant to help resolve the issue. Ultimately ended up having to leverag kayak to resolve but ended up in a king bed when we had originally booked doubles.
The staff was very friendly. The cleanliness of the hotel overall was mediocre.
Free Intrnet available No
close to everything, shopping, casinos, restaurants, nice inner pool with bar, need to walk a block and 1/2 to reach the beach
Location Fire alarm sounding all night. Shower leaked into hallway.
The hotel is located in the middle of a area where all the restaurants en shops are, which is excellent. Everything is on walking distance.
dissapointed at first, they put us in the worst room, not at all like they advertised, at first they refused to move us, after we decided to stay elsewhere they had a better room for us. We had a rocky start with the brickell bay but the staff was wonderful and very helpful for the rest of our stay
Staff very welcoming and efficient. Good advise on the local activities. Rooms very clean and very good service. The hotel geographic situation. The hotel is not directly by the beach and it is located just beside a Burger King. The noise generated by the general air conditionning system was also annoying
condition of rooms, hotel service, beach service from Marcel's Watersports
Location The clean of rooms needs to improve. The mattress is very bad. there are little ant in the room.
The Brickell Bay Beach Club is pretty nice. They do everything for you have a nice stay there. I do recommend :)
Clean, across from beach but has dedicated area with beach concerige. Swim up pool and amazing location. Staff all friendly... Pillows a bit thin but minor thing
Friendly staff, hotel location could not have been better, clean hotel. The air conditioning was either cold, or if you turned it up, the humidity would get to everything. There was a slight smell of mold if the a.c. was on a warm temperature.
Wait staff was slow and not attentive at the bar at the hotel.
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.
The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and attend to your every need.
"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.
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.
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.
There was nothing I did not like! Love love love the private island!!!!! Very contemporary hotel . Love it!!! Nothing
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!
1st trip to Aruba and the Surf club. Kids loved the pool and waterslide. Rooms were great! Minor problem at one point but Staff was great throught the whole thing. Plan on going back in 2011! Loved it.....
Very new hotel and they're still working the kinks out. Airconditioner didn't work in some rooms. Vacationed with a friend and requested room with 2 double beds. When we arrived, found out that all rooms only have 1 bed w/ pull-out sofa. One of us was forced to sleep on uncomfortable sofabed. Rooms are clean and decent, but nothing to write home about. Next trip to Aruba, will probably stay elsewhere.'
Overall, the Marriott Surf Club was Good. I would go there again. However, it is NOT a luxury hotel. The room could have been a bit cleaner, and the decor was nothing fancy. What I loved about it was the convenience of having a kitchenette and a washer dryer in the suite. It was also great to have a 1 bedroom with a separate living room area versus only having a regular hotel room. The hotel grounds were well maintained. There were many pools, kiddie pools, a lazy river- basically, something for everyone.
The staff was very friendly and accomodating. Clean. Could walk to other hotels. Liked the pool. The beach towel policy was a little stressful; you are given 4 in your room and expected to 4.While I understand it, we were with a group and our things were often mixed together. I had to put my towels in a bag, so they weren't accidentally used or taken
We took a family trip - all adults (brother is a time share owner). We were completely impressed. Staff was friendly, if we needed anything all we had to do was ask, everything was clean & spacious.The pool was excellent and never crowded; plenty of beach area & lounge chairs (with umbrellas). Obviously if you go during typical summer months (when the rest of the US is on vacation), you may have issues. We went in late Sept/early Oct and didn't have to deal with family with small children or children/teens period. We're going back in Sept...with different people this time...We're going to love it. Can't wait I'm so excited!
We've been coming to aruba for 15 yrs.. This was our 1st. yr. in our time share at the Surf Club and 3rd. year at the Marriott resorts. We Brought some friends with us who enjoyed & loved their stay. We did encounter some minor problems, ie the pool not enough lounge chairs and to many people reserving them and not using them for more than 2,3 or 4 hrs.. The beach was not yet finished and the swimming area was to small in the ocean. Over all it had to be another great trip since we booked while we were there for next year and it's possible going back this year to purchase another time share.
Very close to the beach and shopping center Drinks were very weak and staff did not record information correctly. I checked in on Monday and was staying until Friday morning, staff put me down as checking in Tueaday and leaving Thursday morning.
We stayed at this resort in June of 2009. The rooms were very clean, well maintained, and the kitchenette was a true benefit. The resort grounds were very impressive. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool was fantatistic! We enjoyed it so much, that we planned a trip to go back next year while we were still there! Overall, it was one of the best vacations ever.
great time, great island (clean, safe, fun)
They have furnished terraces with kitchenettes where we could cook and hang out while watching the ocean. That was awesome. We went snorkeling at Arashi which is really nearby. The owner really showed us the best spots so we had the best experience.
