Thanks for the replies. Do the studios have kitchens?
I own at Marriott Ocean but have stayed at both. WIth kids, I prefer the Surf Club due to the lazy river. Ocean Club is quieter and their beach area is bigger and less crowded than Surf Club.
It's pretty easy to trade into Surf Club and possibly upgrade to a bigger unit within 59 days of checkin. I traded a 1bdrm for a 3bdrm during off season. Platinum season is a bit harder to get into without placing an ongoing request but it's not impossible.
Have fun and enjoy Aruba.
If you trade into a 1 bedroom unit, how do you upgrade to a 2 or 3 bedroom unit?
