Photo Peek of the Marriott Aruba Surf Club
Photos of Marriott's Aruba Beach Resort at Palm Beach
I spent 4 hours on Aruba in April, 2012. It was a port-of-call when we cruised the Panama canal. We took an excursion for a day at the beach.
Wandering around we found the tour bus deposited us next to the Marriott Aruba Vacation Club. Since we have a Marriott timeshare we checked the grounds out for a possible stay one day.
It would be good reference for other timeshare members or our family for their future vacation choices.
Enjoy the Marriott's Surf Club photos. I hope they may help your decision making, as well.
Photos of the Marriott Vacation Club
There are no surprises at this Marriott Surf Club. The grounds were nicely manicured and not over done.
It is located on Palm Beach. Plenty of restaurants nearby.
The Island Has a Prevailing Breeze
Our bus tour guide informed us that Aruba has a daily prevailing breeze. Take note of the palm tree. There are three towers like this one on the Marriott grounds.
Aruba Is Like a Desert Island
Here is another example of the breeze that comes up every day on the island. The tree center left is the divi-divi, it is usually seen blown on its side from the trade winds. The island is only 20 miles long.

Where is Aruba?
I did not know exactly where Aruba was until we cruised by. It is about 15 miles from Venezuela.
Nuevo Vallarta - Mexican Beach Resort
Get all the same amenities as the Marriott Vacation Clubs at the Playa del Palmar resorts in Mexico. This excellent resort is part of Interval International.

The Marriott Grounds
The Marriott grounds are very basic, nothing fancy or lush. It is immaculately clean and every thing is in its place. Very much like the other Marriott resorts I have stayed at. Remember these photos are from the very end of the season. The beach umbrellas all had reversed signs and they are placed very close together. I can imagine this resort is very popular at high season.
