The property is impeccably maintained and the staff is friendly and extremely helpful. We have been coming here for 14 years and are always impressed. The plans for future improvements are very impressive and will continue to enhance the property.

Everything about our stay at the Ocean Club was wonderful. The rooms, the facility, the pools, the restaurants, and the location was wonderful. There is quality in every detail.
We have traveled to many places around the world, and this is one of our favorites. The staff was also very positive and helpful. As others have mentioned, The Sands restaurant was convenient and had great food. The Grouper on the menu was the best seafood we had all week!
I would also like to give my appreciation to the De Palm tour agents staffed in the lounge of the resort. All of our tours were seamless, with pick up and drop-off service to most of the tours we purchased. The agents were knowledgeable and helpful in guiding our choices. Those tours greatly enhanced our experience on the island.
Children: We are at an age, where we appreciated the calmer pool activity at the Ocean Club as compared to the Surf club. There is a huge hot tub elevated at Ocean club, and it is still kid-friendly because it has a normal pool and is right on the beach.
If you have not been to Aruba before, the desert climate, strong winds, and happy island people make it a wonderful place to visit. Add the luxury of a Marriott time-share, and it's a little bit of paradise.

We have been traveling to the OC for 17 years. We love it here. It’s our home away from home. Friendly staff. Beautiful beach. Great food & drinks. Lots of family friendly activities. Great location for outdoor activities, with a beautiful sunset every night.

We have owned a timeshare at the Ocean Club for more than 10 years; best investment that we have made. It schedules a vacation for us each year.
Villas are so well appointed, comfortable and clean with magnificent views of the water. The Sands Eatery was a highlight everyday for lunch and bingo. The outstanding staff : Wilma, Edward and Ferdie just makes your day. They are entertaining, attentive and always happy. Food is really good.

Room Tip: High floor will always get a water view

The Sands Eatery was being totally renovated last year and on our trip to Aruba this year we gave it a try. What a surprise! The service was incredible by our wait staff Gina and Carmen. My wife noticed the Frette linens on the table. The meals were very well presented and flavorfully filling at a very reasonable price. Beach and sunset views from our table. Recommended Sands Eatery to other friends who also had great experiences and enjoyed their meals, as well.
