Stayed on a 2 bedroom apartment that had balcony, aircon, 2 bathrooms and laundry. Extremely handy location as it was across the road from heaps of restaurants and shops including many coffee shops and supermarkets. It is also very close to the convention centre, Jupiters Casino, and Pacific Fair. The grounds are gorgeous and well maintained, and the heated pool... More

This motel is so well placed in regards to its surroundings, inclusing restaurants, parks, beach, draculas and pacific fair. The managers/owners were accommodating to requests. I thought that the rooms were set out so well. I am nit picking when I say that the ceiling above the shower recess need an extra clean and the A/C unit letting out a... More

I just had three days at Aruba and a massive plus is the location, right next to a street full of great restaurants and a very short walk to the beach. The resort itself was a little basic and my motel style room had a tiny fridge at floor level with the microwave sitting on top of it. Obviously you... More

This hotel was in a handy position as we were attending a conference at the convention center. So close infact it was straight across the road. We had everything we needed and very close to all the restaurants of Broadbeach. We didn't try the pool as it was a touch cold. The room was ok for what we needed. Fully... More

With the extremely busy event calendar for Gold Coast Convention Centre, we host many large groups and teams attending these conferences so were very happy having you here staying with us. We do offer great value for money making it an easy decision to book accommodation at Aruba Beach. In our rooms we offer a starter of complimentary toiletries, tea,... More

I stayed for the Jazz Festival and had about a 5 minute walk to most locations, so it was just so handy. Restaurants and cafes were right across the road and, if you needed to go further, there was a bus stop and tram line close by. The unit itself was comfortable and clean with everything you needed, though a... More

We are always enhancing our fully self contained rooms to ensure our guests of a comfortable stay and this is an ongoing commitment. Location, location, location,... More

We stayed at Aruba Beach Resort for 2 nights. It was a very short walk to convention centre and the new tram line. Bus stop for theme parks just outside the resort. We were in a 1 bedroom apartment which was at the front of the complex facing the main road and right next to reception. It was very noisy,... More

You mention the location, yes, the Conference Centre is so close and very handy for Delegates to attend when staying at Aruba Beach Resort. No driving, just a short stroll away.

Thank you for your kind comments. We very lucky to be in the hub of everything Broadbeach. Public transport like buses and trams are right outside our doors, so it makes exploring the Gold Coast & it's Theme Parks very easy.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Firstly I would like to thank the assistance provided by the hotel management. They helped me to print out my skypoint voucher.

Great location, close to shops, beach and new tramway. Didn't use the heated pool but other guests said it was great. The ground floor room's balcony was directly opposite the front entrance and it was disconcerting to be at eye level with all guests coming and going. The room was tired and not particularly clean.
