I am always being asked the difference between Marriott Aruba’s Ocean Club and Surf Club. They are adjacent to each other on the beach and although they appear to be one resort since they are so close to each other they are in fact 2 different Aruba timeshare resort on one property. There is also a hotel on property, the Stellaris hotel, spa, and Casino. The ocean club is about 1/4 the size of the Surf club, therefore preferred by families with older/adult children. Regardless of which of the 3 properties you are staying at you may use the amenities at all three including but not limited to the spa, the casino (age permitting) the bars and restaurants, playgrounds, the tennis court, gym and the kids club but you may NOT use each other’s swimming pools or Palapas in the beach area. The Surf Club has a lazy river and slides.

The accommodations are very similar at each property. The Ocean Club has Studios, in addition to one and two bedroom units. The Surf Club houses Studio’s, one, two and 12, three bedroom units all but the studios have in-unit washer/dryer probably because the property is much larger and generally accommodates larger families. Both Surf and Ocean Club have laundry facilities on each floor, just swipe your keycard and they are free to guests!
