I had my wedding at the Renaissance in early December 2015. I chose the resort primarily because their ceremony space (including the flamingos) but with the all-inclusive ability (or not) of the resort, access to downtown, and shorter stature of the "high-rise", the
Renaissance Aruba was a perfect fit for our wedding and vacation.
I loved the wedding space and it was perfect for our group of 14. I'm not sure how well it would work for groups larger than 30 or so (although they likely have it figured out). We chose a package that included our ceremony, a reverend, bouquet and boutineer, and a cocktail hour and half with premium open bar and hors d'eourves.
I think a lot of my family was skeptical of doing an intimate destination wedding, but between the few days vacationing together ahead of time, various dinners together at some of the fabulous restaurants, and then the sunset ceremony, everyone was exclaiming how perfect the whole thing turned out. The cocktail hour and half was so nice (albeit somewhat mosquito-y)- we had passed hors d'eourves, tables, a steel pan player duo (which was extra) and a champagne toast. Everything was incredible and I would highly recommend.
Early on in the process I started working with one coordinator and then was switched to another coordinator which was a little annoying because I had to restate all of my requests and it left me feeling concerned that certain details were going to fall through the cracks, but nothing did. I was also worried about language being a barrier, but since everything turned out so nicely and so smoothly, that didn't appear to be an issue either!

We had our wedding here and it was truly magical!!! The hotel is beautiful and the island is really a dream. The food was realllyyyy good - I would say the best I've had at any wedding (I could be biased but I don't think so!). The wedding planners, Randolph and Milayne, are very friendly and helpful. The only thing I would caution against is that they are a little slow to respond to e-mails and sometimes there is a communication barrier. However, once you get to the island and speak to them in person, everything will go much more smoother!
