4-Star Aruba casino resort at US$355 per night for two

In a deal that feels more like the off season promotions we had been seeing, today’s special is for an excellent casino resort in a prime location on the lovely island of Aruba. Better still, this resort is one of the few that offers all inclusive options along with a la carte options, so each guest can take advantage of the plan that fits them best.

The Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino is a 4-star resort in a stunning corner of the heart of Oranjestad, and they have King rooms starting at US$355 per night for two people in high season. It gets better, which we’ll explain below, so this might be the perfect choice for lovers of nightlife but who also want to spend January in the tropics.

The Deal

An Island King room at the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino for US$355 per night, with a US$40 per room Resort Credit per day. The all inclusive plan goes for US$564 per night for two people.

The Details

This rate is a promotion only available through Expedia, and it includes free cancellation and there is no minimum stay required to qualify. This is for a one-week stay in January, but this promotion of 25% to 30% off is available for other months as long as the resort isn’t fully booked.

Great nightlife and a tempting Resort Credit

This is a casino resort overlooking the beach in the heart of Oranjestad in Aruba, so it’s a perfect hotel for people who love to relax in the tropical sun during the day and live it up at night. If you are the type who likes to drink at least a bit then the all inclusive option is probably a good deal.

But the great thing about this promotion is that if you don’t do the all inclusive one you can get a super discount and a resort credit. The US$40 per day per room should pay for a light breakfast and light lunch for both people each day, and that leaves you open to spending as much or as little as you like on dinner.

Since this hotel is located on the beach in the heart of a lively city, it also means that guests can visit any number of other local restaurants or bars during their stay. The one complaint that many people have at all inclusive resorts is that they are literally eating in the same one or two restaurants for every meal every day for a week. That can get old, but this way you can use the resort credit for breakfast and get something elsewhere for lunch, and then go fancy or simple at another local place for dinner.

The Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino gets very good reviews from TripAdvisor and Expedia and it has many people who return each year, so if you are thinking of doing this deal it would be wise to book soon or it will be gone.
