The facilities were clean and well looked after, making our stay very relaxing and enjoyable. Well-maintained and clean pool and BBQ area. The apartments were spacious... More

We had a roomy one bedroom, well laid out, apartment on the third floor with our balcony overlooking the pool. It was lovely looking down through all the palm trees and other greenery that kept the pool private from the street and I enjoyed swimming in the pool every day and enjoying the hot spa. The resort was in a... More

And we didn't sleep very well on the mattress that had a sag in the middle. When we told the receptionist they were narky about it. I... More

Hi Ally Thank you for taking the time to review Aruba Surf Resort, we are sorry that you found the mattress a little soft for your requirements, when you advised me about this I commented that the owner has just stayed in the apartment for 10 nights which surprised me that they had not requested to have a new mattress,...

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment, management were helpful and friendly. The apartment was clean and practical, Great location, near to beach and restaurants. Broadbeach a lovely quieter area but still close enough to walk into Surfers Paradise. We definitely stay at Aruba Surf again.
