Ritz Aruba Club vs Marriott Stellaris Tradewinds

Hi FT'ers. Trying to decide between Ritz carlton vs Marriott Stellaris in Aruba. Was looking at booking club rooms at both. I see some folks online saying kids aren't allowed in the Tradewinds floor at Mariott? Is this true? I was able to proceed with booking online (didn't confirm) with the kids but wasn't sure if there would be an error after purchasing.

Can anyone suggest one hotel over the other? Surprisingly, price is not much higher at Ritz. Are either of the clubs superior to the other?

Thanks!

The Ritz club is FAR superior. Not even the same universe. Beautiful setting, presentation, service. I wouldn't even consider the Marriott if the RC was an option. Kids are not allowed in Tradewinds AFAIK.

You will be very happy. The Club at RC is purpose built. Large and never feels crowded. Wonderful views. The Marriotts is retrofitted. Smaller and doesn't have the service and quality.
