The Marriott Aruba Surf Club is located along a glittering, white-sand beach near the town of Palm Beach, located just northwest of the capital cit of Oranjestad. This Marriott Vacation Club Resort is one of the best options for Aruba hotels, whether you’re on a honeymoon or other romantic getaway, or you’re booking a family vacation and want to make sure there are plenty of things to do with the kids in mind. Like most resorts in this part of the world, the Aruba Surf Club goes all-out on its décor and atmosphere to make sure guests have the best stay possible.
The accommodations at the Marriott Aruba Surf Club easily meet the standard travelers have come to expect from this brand. There are fourteen floors in the building hosting 450 rooms and 450 suites, including both deluxe guestrooms and the options for one-, two-, and three-bedroom villas. In the rooms, the standard amenities include air conditioning, a coffee maker, minifridge, pullout sofa bed, a hair dryer, cable TV, and a wet bar, among other features.
All of the villas feature fully equipped kitchens, private balconies, an in-villa washer and dryer, luxurious bathrooms, and private master bedrooms. The two-bedroom villas are roughly 1,200 square feet apiece and can sleep up to eight people, while the three-bedroom, three-bath villas are about 1,700 square feet and can sleep up to twelve people. If you’re planning a getaway with a group of travelers, sharing the cost of a villa can bring a luxury vacation within your budget, especially if you’re able to book one of the vacation packages offered by Marriott.
There are several restaurants on-site, including La Vista, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Simply Fish, and the Waves Bar & Grill among others, and guests can also order room service or prepare a few of their own meals, if they’re staying in one of the villas with a kitchen. The array of things to do at the Aruba Surf Club is stunning—there is a luxury outdoor pool with a lazy river and waterslide, a fitness center, duty-free shopping, the Mandara Spa, and the 24-hour Stellaris Casino. Guests will also find that this resort has several things to do that are specifically for the youngest guests, including a kids club, as well as several especially unique things to do. If you’re looking to break out of the mold during your trip to Aruba, consider attending one of the pool-deck movies, taking lessons in the local Papiamento language, playing a few rounds of bingo, touring the Casibari Rock Formation or Aruba Ostrich Farm, or participating in the iguana feeding.
It is relatively easy to reach Aruba from the US, with plenty of international flights going through the airport in Oranjestad, and the Marriott Aruba Surf Club also has several vacation packages, which can help you bundle transportation and accommodations costs. There are airfare, car rental, and vacation packages, Marriott Rewards and AAA discounts, corporate deals, and often last-minute discounts, among other options. The Marriott properties are also used to hosting large events, so if you’re considering a destination wedding, a family reunion, or a business conference, the Marriott Aruba Surf Club could be exactly the location you’re looking for.
