Had a nice week here. Found the staff polite but not as engaged as in the past. Room was clean and all meals that we ate on site were good. Was nice to see issues with the palapas and chairs have been resolved.

Accommodations are lovely. They are clean and most comfortable. Lazy river relaxing and fun. Staff is helpful and friendly. Location is wonderful. Their fish tacos at the outdoor restaurant are not to be missed.

Really enjoyed our stay here for a week. We had a one bed room villa on the fourth floor overlooking the pool area and the lazy river. Villa was very sunny and spacious for two adults and two children. Everything was clean, neat and in great working order and looked quite new. Our one bedroom villa had one formal bathroon... More

one of the largest time shares we have been to. Aruba seems very nice. Location is near shops and restaurants. Since it was spring break it was crowded. To get pool chairs they give you tags BUT you meet to wake at at 5am to get any. Our kids are 12 and 16 which was higher than most. A lot... More

We spent spring break at the Aruba Surf Club, we are not Marriott timeshare owners. We expected it to be crowded and we expected to wake up early to get beach and pool chairs but waking up at 530 am to get a beach chair that does not even provide an ocean view seems ridiculous. If you like the beach... More

The Surf Club in Aruba is top notch. Always have a superb time! Something to do for absolutely everyone! Great weather, great food and a great location for sun and fun. Never have regreted our decision to buy Marriott.

Last year we stayed at the Ocean Club and unfortunately couldn't get a room there this year so we booked the surf club. Initially I was disappointed but we were pleasantly surprised! We had a great time, and thanks to the Serenity Pool, we were often not bothered by the screaming kids who were having a great time at the... More

My husband, 2 children (ages 7 and 11) just returned from Aruba after staying 7 beautiful nights. We chose to go to Aruba for Spring Break because we were tired of the uncertainty of March weather in Florida. We were not disappointed! We enjoyed the trip so much that we have already determined we will be returning to Aruba-and specifically... More

The Surf Club is our home resort, having been owners since 2003. We checked in on Friday with no line. Our extended family arrived on Saturday (week before Easter) – a short wait for check-in. What was surprising was that there were not the usual crowds in the early part of the week. Apparently changes in spring break schedules adopted... More

We spent a weekend at this hotel to relax from a very stressful working week. We Arubans tend to use our island-perk a lot and go hotel hopping throughout the year. First off the location. It's NOT Eagle Beach area. Even though Aruba is a small island and it's a 7 minute drive, I wouldn't place this hotel within the... More
