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

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. Our booking was for use... More

Thanks for all your feedback. The pool is heated to a comfortable 26C so we hope you get to use it on your next visit because it really does get a good workout at this time of year. We offer level 1, 2 & 3 rooms with balconies and you can choose to have a higher level if that is... More

Great location. Hardly had to walk any distance to restaurants and bus stops. Very helpful management. Great value for money. Nice clean rooms. Nothing flashy but perfect for holidaymakers who just need a home base. Would definitely stay again!

Perfect location with good amenities and best location on the gold coast. If you like nice food try this resort because you have the cream of the crop to choose from. Great trendy place this food & club strip in Broadbeach. Rooms very nice and heated pool a bonus for this time of the year. Great front desk managers.

Stayed five nights in clean affordable apartments. Needed an extra night at the last minute due to flight being canceled, which was no problem. The hosts went out of their way to help us and even drove one of our party to a medical Centre. Absolutely lovely people, highly recommend Aruba.
