Ah, the Surf Club! I've visited this property for many years with family and I'm there again at this moment. There are a lot of good things about this property, from the general spaciousness and conveniences in the rooms, to the expansive pools on the property. But, despite everything I can never really relax here. Echoing the sentiments of other... More

My family and I checked in Monday Jan 25th at 11pm at night. I have 4 children ranging in ages 2-13. Check in was smooth we went right up to our room after 13 hours of travelling. We were looking forward to getting some rest so we could be up early to get out and enjoy the Aruba sun that... More

Our 6th year here. Always have a wonderful time. A bit of a hassle getting chairs by the serenity pool. Love the lazy river! Great spot within walking distance to many great restaurants and casinos. Can't wait to come back next year.

This is a great resort for a family vacation. Kids and adults enjoy the lazy river. Everyday they have a lot of activities. But it is so big that you can also find a quiet area to relax. Oh I almost forgot their amazing happy hour. We love to come every year!

b h love the review. We have been coming the last ten years in the 3rd and 4th weeks in Jan. Third week is usually very busy and beach up by water is packed. Monty rents umbrellas if you don't want to wait on the palapa line. The line is where you get all the good information about the resort... More

I was there third and fourth week of Jan 2016 The huge group of NY families were there and their presence was what made our trip most enjoyable. They are elegant, respectable and interesting in so many ways. The staff is delighted to have them as they are always very generous tippers. Those who complain are often people that do... More

Been coming here for the last 5 years. A complete delight. Huge and clean rooms, friendly staff, great beach and really incredible swimming pools. We have a 1 year old and a 4 year old and this place is a perfect match for us. Lots of other children here, but it never gets too rowdy. And there are adult only... More

We purchased a custom Aruba license plate in the Cool Things store. They said if it was not ready by the time we left (a week later) they would ship it out. We went to pick it up and it was not ready. We paid for shipping $9.00 and we never received the plate. I tried to call the Hotel... More

You can't be grumpy on the happy island. The island is beautiful... The water, the people and all the interesting things to do. Horse back riding to water fun. It has rugged beauty to gorgeous beaches. Lots of restaurants to explore and so much to enjoy even if you want to just relax.

I am an owner for 12 years. It needs help, it's looking shabby not clean. I also own 2 Timeshares at the Ocean Club.. Which is truly amazing, clean on point with everything.Love it. It is a more intimate and quiet and yet a fun place for the family.
