We recently stayed for 3 nights at the Aruba Surf Resort and found it to be good value at the "winter special" rate. The location is excellent, with only a short walk to the beach and nearby eateries (quite a range). Our 1 bedroom apartment was on the second floor (beware no lift) but lacked a nice view. Although pretty... More

We have stayed at all three Aruba Apartments in Broadbeach over many years, and they never disappoint – and Aruba Surf on this trip was no exception. Its location is ideal, on a short quiet street, and it is only a few minutes’ walk to the beach, the park, the Oasis shopping centre, the restaurant precinct, Jupiters Casino, Pacific Fair,... More

This was the second time we have stayed at Aruba Surf Resort. As usual, the management, unit and facilities were excellent. We couldn't have asked for a better holiday. Things went wonderfully well and much of this was due to our hosts to whom nothing was a problem. The Aruba Surf Resort in our opinion is THE place to stay.

My husband and I stayed for a total of 7 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
