|Our Room at the Renaissance Aruba Resort|
I reviewed my hotel stay at the Renaissance Aruba Resort and the Discover Aruba Tour that my wife and I were able to take on another site. The hotel was not the nicest I've stayed in, but the location was just about perfect. The tour took place on an air-conditioned bus that was quite comfortable. There are many great eating and shopping establishments in the capital of Oranjestad and the Palm Beach area. Of course, it goes without saying that the weather in Aruba beat the weather for just about all of the United States. It was around 86 degrees each day of the stay. My hotel had a private barrier island that could only be accessed by its guests. Thanks to Marriott Rewards and Delta SkyMiles, I was able to experience the most relaxing time I've had in (probably) years.
