Our Caribbean resort in stunning Aruba offers the perfect vacation spot, whether you have a family to entertain or you’re looking for a secluded, romantic stay for two. We have two distinctive experiences: the hip, lively Marina Hotel is adult-exclusive, while the Renaissance Ocean Suites is a sophisticated one-bedroom option for families or groups. Of course, both provide exclusive access to a special discovery hiding just off shore at Renaissance Island (Flamingo sightings ahead). Our location in Oranjestad’s vibrant downtown gives you endless opportunities to revel in Aruban culture in the heart of the city. Friendly resident Navigator Esmeralda is available to help you plan your island adventure.

Dutch Pancake House

Try the poffertjes (mini buckwheat pancakes) in flavors like brandied raisin or peach and Grand Marnier at this popular breakfast eatery.
Dutch Pancake House has everything you could want in a vacation breakfast spot - spacious patio, great food and a relaxed island vibe. The restaurant specializes in Dutch pancakes, different from American pancakes in that they are baked on a skillet in the oven as opposed to being cooked on the stove. The wafer-thin pancakes are generously garnished with a variety of sweet or savory toppings from home-made fruit compote to French brie cheese. The Picasso pancake with fresh fruit, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and powdered sugar is a favorite. The carni stoba or Aruban beef stew is a good choice if you're looking to try a more classically Caribbean dish.
