    Has Anyone Heard About The Renaissance Being Sold??

    Just came across this article on the Curacao Chronice and the Caribbean Journal.

    thanks for posting the links

    it's odd though, Wind River took ownership months ago and it seems like it took forever for it to be publicized.

    at the renaissance ocean suites in aruba, the timeshare owners there are not seeing anything negative re: the sale.
    the staff has remained and management is now finally putting in restrooms poolside.
    the folks had been asking for many years about putting restrooms in.
    it appears that the new owners granted the request.

    The Renaissance is still being managed by Marriott Corp.
    Apparently all has remained the same re: policies and staff.
    They listened to their timeshare owner’s Request and are putting restrooms at the outdoor pool at the Ocean Suites.

    thanks andrea and walt...I have close friends that come the same time as we do and they try to use points for their stay. they like the Ren better than the high-rise versions of marriott so I was concerned they would have to change hotels.

    New owner of Renaissance?

    I heard a rumor that the Renaissance is being sold. Anyone have any information? Are the Crystal and Seaport being renamed?
