I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived to stay for three night at aruba sands. I booked through wotif and at a rate of around $150 per night over a weekend I thought it was excellent value. It was a fully self contained apartment with a decent sized layout and verandah. Has everything you would need although its not overly... More

What fantastic hosts this property has. They were so lovely and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed for 6 nights and it was a truly great place to lay ones heads for time away to recharge batteries. The location is unbeatable and the room had everything needed to self cater. A property is only as good as the hosts... More

Glad I chose this place for a conference this week. It's only a few mins walk from the convention centre and just by all the restaurants of Broadbeach while still remaining quiet and homely. It feels like a rather old fashioned Aussie family run place and the decor and furnishings reflect this, but it's spacious, super clean and owners were... More

Stayed at Aruba Sands for 6 nights recently. The managers Bruce and Barbara were excellent to deal with, quite simply their warm welcome and smiles, and their extra efforts to make the stay memorable.
