March Resort Spotlight - Marriott's Aruba Surf Club

Marriott's Aruba Surf Club is undoubtedly one of RedWeek's most popular and active resorts. Boasting over 700 active rental postings, this Palm Beach-based resort proves to be a perennial favorite among both Marriott owners and renters looking for accommodations in Aruba. And with
that many postings, there's no doubt that you'll have no trouble finding the dates you need! So what is it that makes Marriott's Aruba Surf Club such a hit and the topic of this month Resort Spotlight? It all begins with the location...

Palm Beach is, in every way, a perfect tropical retreat. Year-round sun and warm temperatures make Aruba the perfect getaway to close in more continental climes, and Palm Beach is particularly renowned for it's proximity to the capital of Oranjestad as well as the award-winning Eagle Beach. The Palm Beach area has quickly blossomed into a mecca with with a vibrant, beach-centric culture, a newly completed shopping area and a host of nearby activities ranging from golf to water sports. The resort itself makes quite an impression - a massive, towering facade painted in shades of warm caramel, tan and cream.

The amenities offered at Marriott's Aruba Surf Club are unrivaled by surrounding resorts. A sprawling pool and lazy river wind around and among palm trees and blossoming gardens, feeling every bit the tropical oasis. The resort is also home to the glitzy Stellaris Casino - 10,700 square feet of high-stakes fun where you can try your luck. Or perhaps a relaxing spa day is more your style? Surf Club guests have access to the neighboring Aruba Ocean Club's Mandara Spa, complete with VIP treatment rooms, and extra-large Jacuzzi bath, steam room, nail salon and more. And off course, no one wants to let their workout routine fall by the wayside on vacation. The Surf Club's state-of-the-art fitness center is equipped with free weights and cardio equipment. Equipment and area for tennis, volleyball and table tennis are also provided.

The Surf Club's winding pool is a blast for all ages
The Surf Club is divided into three distinct towers, each with their own unique properties. The Lighthouse building is typically the most sought-after, with every unit being of the "oceanside" designation. Oceanside designates the units with the closest location to the beach, and is coveted by those looking to walk right outside the building and onto the sand. The Compass Tower houses the Surf Club's spacious three-bedroom units as well as the resort's lobby and marketplace. The Spyglass Tower is the newest addition to the resort, with envious views of the property's colorful gardens and lazy river.

Colorful, bright and breezy rooms accented with vibrant redwoods perfectly epitomize the resort's island spirit.

In the one-bedroom and up villas, enjoy full kitchens, spacious living and dining areas, flat-screen televisions, high-speed internet, upscale bathrooms and private balconies. Studios trade the full kitchen and separate living and dining rooms for a kitchenette and combined living/dining area, providing all the necessities in a compact area.
