    Renaissance Marina Hotel?

    Just wondering what condition the rooms are in at the Reniassance Marina? We are staying in an Ocean View room. How many levels is the hotel and do they have mini refrigerators in the rooms? Thanks for any help.

    the rooms are lovely....not overly ostentatious, but nicely done.
    renovated about 18 mos ago.
    i do not know the number of levels.......maybe 5?
    we have not stayed in the marina hotelfor about 8 or so years and do not remember if there was a mini fridge.

    The rooms are great since the remodel. There is a mini fridge but let me prepare you that it does not get very cold, we bring a little soft sided cooler that's easy to pack. We get ice from the machine and keep some gatorades and ginger ales in there...it's much colder that at. I think there are 6 floors.

    Dumb question....
    I booked this hotel through price line for $125.00 know this is a pretty good deal;
    Is this a nice hotel, is it walking distance to stores, good eating places ? I do not plane on renting a car
    Looking into doing ABC tours for the safari to get a nice feel of the island
    Never been to Aruba and it was a good deal I couldn't pass up

    as cindy said you got a great deal.
    once the taxes are added in what is the price?

    there are tons of restaurants within walking distance
    to name a few.........

    aquarius, lg smith, hung paradise, cilo, yemanja, paddock, iguana joe, casa tua, starbucks, dunkin, cafe plaza, pizza n more.

    vist the BLU Bar at the lobby

    and of course renaissance island.

    ps..there are no dumb questions!!

    Believe it came to $610 plus I will owe the $70. but overall I thought it was a good price
    I have done price line several times... first I start with the 3 or 4 star hotels, then I go from there.. Always start low; then
    will be denied and keep trying on different emails.
    They denied my first bid $110.00 then finally took it for $125.00 still not bad.
    Our first time going there. Flying in on a Monday and back on a Friday. Direct flights too.
    Another not so dumb question....
    To get to from airport would you do a taxi or tour bus? Both are the same price.
    Would love any tips and extra.

    Now do the rooms have coffee pots
    need the morning caffeine to get me started. If so is it the pods type or regular small pot
