    Tradewinds at the Stellaris Best place to stay!

    Had a wonderful time at the Stellaris. People are very friendly, service excellent and food was great. We stayed in the Tradewinds area and they make you feel very special. You are on the top floor with wonderful views. We always come at this time of year and love everything here!

    Stay away. But I’d also stay away from Aruba.

    This is an over priced scam. The food is barely edible and the accommodation is very basic. Don’t expect anything other than the Holiday Inn. Pasta for room service and Ruth’s Chris are your only edible options onsite. The staff is pleasant and you can tell are overworked. The biggest disappointment besides the food is the beach which is tiny and the ocean floor is squishy in ways that are not from natural causes but clearly from poor ecological upkeep by Aruba. And the trash! Now this is not the Marriott’s fault, but it gives you an idea of who you’re fellow travelers are. There’s trash everywhere and on more than one occasion is witnessed both kids and adults dropping cups and napkins and plates and just waking away like nothing was wrong. It was so sad and so gross to stroll the beach only to find paper cups and plastic lids and plastic bowl covers literally strewn across then sand. It was just depressing.

    Good Stay -- Tradewinds was Worth It

    Pros: -Beautiful beach and pools -Location a bit away from it all – close to kitesurfing -Tradewinds floor – room was nice enough with an ocean view. Do not know how it compared to others. -The Tradewinds breakfast (& coffee) was adequate for our needs. We also liked being able to grab a few sparkling waters and sodas for the day. The best part of the Tradewinds package was always having access to drinks and snacks. We never had to plan ahead for food or pre-emptively eat a larger meal to tide us over to the next one. We could just drop by the Tradewinds lounge anytime we needed. Also, we could keep our room refrigerator stocked up with drinks, too. -The Tradewinds lunch was very basic. They had tiny pre-made sandwiches and wraps. I personally wished they would just put out a build-your-own sandwich bar but nope… even the cereal machine from breakfast was covered up. They only wanted you to have fully-prepared tiny everything. -The Tradewinds snack time was better than any other meal because you could actually get a full portion of something you wanted to eat… mixed nuts, fruit, chips, cookies, etc. -Tradewinds happy hour was excellent. We usually tried to drop by for a cocktail before going out to dinner or after returning from dinner. -We were very glad we decided to rent a car. We ended up at dinners all over the island and it provided easier access to our dive boat’s pier. You could easily have done the vacation without a car, but we much preferred the freedom of having one. Cons: -Housekeeping times – we never figured them out. Sometimes we would leave our room for the entire morning (diving) or four hours in the afternoon (kitesurfing) and come back to find our room had not been cleaned. A few times we even waved and said “hi” to the housekeeping staff as we left, letting them know our room was ready to be cleaned. Then we would still come back hours later to an uncleaned room. Many days we did not get housekeeping at all. We think perhaps the housekeeping staff would make one round and if your “Do Not Disturb” sign was up at that time then you didn’t get housekeeping that day. Even though we always left a tip, there seemed to be no “call-backs.” It was not a dealbreaker; we just called down for more towels when we needed them or hoped the turndown service would provide them. -Tradewinds dinners were basically terrible. I didn’t mind the tiny portions because you could order as many little two-bite salads as you wanted. However, most of the dinner food bordered on inedible. They were trying to do little gourmet bites on a budget and it just didn’t work. We tried twice and gave up. -Restaurant delivery/take out policies. Room service was only available from a very limited menu. The one meal we did order was okay, and the service was wonderful. However, the Stellaris had this strange policy that if you wanted to order takeout (which meant many more menu choices) from any of the restaurants on-site you had to order in person, wait on site for the order to be prepared, and then take it to your room. You could not call ahead, order and pay, and then go down to pick up your order like any other restaurant on the planet. I could not understand this policy and it was very inconvenient.

    A Terrific Stay

    My wife, Judy, and I stayed at the Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino from January 7th - January 17th, 2023. This is our first stay since January 2019, because of COVID. I believe before COVID that we had stayed for eleven straight years at your hotel. First of all, it felt like we were home when we arrived at the hotel to check-in. It was wonderful!! The staff with whom we had contact were very gracious and welcoming and it was perfect. Everywhere we went the staff had a smile and were very engaging. One staff member we truly missed at the beginning was Roy, who had always greeted us by name whenever we arrived. I would like to compliment the following members of the staff who were especially helpful during our stay: Beverly - she has checked us into the Resort for the past several years each time we have arrived. She is always pleasant, anxious to assist, and answers our questions with a smile. We know that everything is going to be great when we see her. Larissa - at the Registration Desk was extremely helpful when I reported that we had a question about a charge on our bill when we reviewed it the night before we checked out. Larissa was professional and very pleasant in resolving the problem and apologized for the mistake. Nethan at the Concierge Desk assisted me and Ron Ogens, another guest, with obtaining our boarding passes for our return flight home. Nethan was very pleasant, understanding and helpful and was able to obtain the passes for us. Cristian and Gabriel were our servers at Waves. They were very friendly and outgoing. They always checked back with us to ensure we were satisfied and had a kind word for everyone they assisted. Ryxell and Jeremy at the Palapa Station were always very pleasant when we arrived to either sign-up or sign-in for the Palapa for the day. I observed their ability to diffuse some difficult guests because of their charisma and patience. Isabelo and Javier helped us with our Palapa. They were always kind and eager to help. Isabelo and Javier always wished us a pleasant walk in the morning and said not to worry that our Palapa would be ready upon our return. Ludwig Croes who works for Marriott Vacation Club was always upbeat and engaging even though we did not participate in the program. We noticed he was the same way with everyone who went by his station. He was also helpful with recommendations for restaurants. We will return to Aruba and stay at the Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino. Our home away from home.

    Nice resort with beautiful beach

    Beautiful resort with pool and swim up bar. FYI -All the resorts that along the beach are connected with a walkway which is great to go for a stroll - many food options around other than eating at the hotel - although we did like the breakfast buffet at the Marriott’s la vista , it’s pricier than local options. The staff on the beach were wonderful - nice to order food and drinks from beach chairs. Why I didn’t rate resort five stars is for two reasons - 1-The resort charges $7.95 a day for Wi-Fi .I feel that Wi-Fi is a standard amenity that should be offered and not nickel and diming the guests (free for Marriott Bonvoy members which luckily we were) 2- The beach palapas. Very confusing . First you have to be on the resort’s wifi and log into ipoolside or you can’t access . Then Although the front desk told us there are free ones available we didn’t see any listed when we went on - we were told they are limited and need to go down to the towel hut but by 7am as they are first come first serve. We don’t want to get up early on vacation at 7am so we unfortunately paid the $25 a day price so we could sleep in but still have shade
