We stayed at this hotel recently for two nights. The resort studio is comfortable, clean and has everything needed for a short stay including a food prep area with microwave. The only challenge for us as seniors was no lift and several sets of stairs, from underground carpark to 3rd level! The price is reasonable. The location is perfect..close to... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Aruba Surf Resort, we agree with you the Studios are very comfortable, however unfortunately they are on the third floor and as advertised we are a 3 storey walk up. If we have availability in a ground floor apartment I will always try to re-locate elderly guests, however this is not always... More

We stayed at the Aruba Surf Resort at Broadbeach, Gold Coast for 12 days, the apartment was in excellent condition and had all the facilities we required. Free secure parking was available. The weather wasn't quite hot enough for swimming but the pool amenities looked very appealing. Shopping malls and restaurants are within easy walking distance. Would readily visit again... More

Recently stayed for one week. One bedroom apartment clean and spacious, any easy walking distance to beach, bars and restaurants. However, make sure you request room facing the sun as rooms at back of resort receive no sun morning or afternoon.

I stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed it. A little noisy down on the street, however what it had to offer was worth it and the price was reasonable. No lifts here though, you have to carry all your luggage up a flight of stairs, stayed on the second floor, had a balcony overlooking the street, if you just want a... More

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.

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.
