Aruba is a very popular destination with Marriott Insiders, and there is some very good information in their posts that might be helpful in planning your trip including discussions on upgrades, restaurants, properties, comparisons of carribean islands where Aruba is mentioned, etc. Below is a list of links I could find that might be useful.

I want to do Caribbean this summer. Been to St Thomas Morning Star several times and want to try another Marriott. Any suggestions? Love the more 'private' feel - and want on the beach like Morning Star rooms are.Thanks!
Just booked Aruba Marriott surf club in September. Wondering if I should change to the aruba Ocean club villa instead? Does anyone know the differences between the two and do they have a preference of one over the other?
Have you stayed at the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino using Marriott Reward Points and if so did you use Points or Cash to upgrade to the Tradewinds Club Level and did you find the added amenities a value?
We are heading to Aruba staying at the surf club (we were assigned surf club through trading our timeshare). I read trip advisor and other than early beach chairs claiming what else do we need to know? We will be renting a car. Help with tips
We are planning a 10 day stay in a Aruba next summer using points. Myself, spouse and children 16 and 14. Which property would you recommend? Leaning either towards renaissance or marriott hotel, but possibly a vacation club.
Renaissance Aruba 2011 Availability?I have been trying unsuccessfully to reserve a paid stay for Feb 2011 for several weeks. I am being told by the Platinum desk that they don't know why no 2011 inventory has been loaded. Does anyone know what's
As far as an upgrade goes, it just depends on the hotel and how busy they are. I have never found that the likelihood of an upgrade depends on whether I am paying in cash or points. Some hotels, seem consistently generous with upgrades and others are not generous. You are entitled to the best room (not a suite) that is available when you check in. Some hotels will give you a suite, but that is their option.
If a hotel is fully booked then there will be no upgrade.
