Traveling with 2 boys (10 & 7) and a grandma, we went with high expectations and for the most part, were not disappointed. We're Marriott owners but used II to trade into the property. Because we used II (interval international), we were given accommodations in the "compass" building, it was just a but further back off the beach than the... More

This was out first visit to Aruba after hearing great things about it from friends. We (with kids 9 and 15) went there during the NJ Teacher's Convention weekend, so there were lots of people from NJ. Stayed at the SC specifically because of the lazy river, location and positive reviews. We were not disappointed. Island was beautiful, and the... More

Here is the quick rundown. If you have kids - go whenever. If you do not have kids and want to relax try to go in October or late November. I heard pretty much any other time it is mayhem. Surf club is a Marriott property and next to it is 2 more Marriott's which are Ocean Club and Stellaris... More

Four of us spent a week enjoying the two bedroom villa overlooking the gardens and pools and enjoying a beautiful view of the Caribbean. The accommodations were fresh and clean. Maintenance responded promptly to a small issue and everything was in working order. The staff was personable and professional. If only the annual maintenance fees were not so high and... More

Great resort. Stayed 8 days and can't find much to complain about. The lazy river and pools were great. We cooked breakfast in our room, used the grills on the resort for most lunches and ate out at local restaurants in the evening. The beach off the resort is decent....Aruba's beaches are not private like some islands allow (public). Take... More

The first thing I would like to say is that when planning your Aruba Vacation, you have to decide what it is you want in an island. Aruba has everything to offer and is truly "One Happy Island". If you are looking for secluded beaches and a quiet vacation, with less people, you probably want to stay on Eagle Beach.... More

Much is geared to families; Surf club has it all when you are on vacation with the family: pool, slide, playground, the lazy river, and the beach is right there. We stayed at the Surf Club, and we loved it. Being empty nesters, we found the Serenity Pool (adults only) to be very relaxing, and the lazy river was a... More

The pool is loud, even the adult pool was very noisy because of the proximity to the main pool. The constant parade of people carrying tubes was awful, I felt like a bumper boat every time we walked somewhere or rode an elevator. The food options at this property was very limited, only had bar food or special buffets when... More

Surf club has it all when you are on vacation with little ones: the beach is right there, if they are bored of it, lazy river and the pool are to the rescue :-) Great amenities. Hotel rooms look a bit tired though, but you are rarely in the room anyway! The only little complain I had was the check-in:... More
