Was perfect unforgivable holiday. Nice clean air conditioned room, nice bedding, kitchen. Swimming pool has dissent size, hot pool, barbecue and everything just awesome. Just few minutes to the beach. Jupiter Casino on another side of the road

I will state the facts as I saw them and my rating is obviously based on my own experience and how my expectations were met. This is a decent, well-kept property in a very convenient location close to beaches, shopping, dining and so on. This review is about my own unit (studio #31B). The studio was reasonably clean (minor trash... More

I stayed here with my wife and newborn girl for a weekend and it was pleasant enough. The location is super close to Broadbeach shops and only 5 mins walk to the beach. The room was basic but comfortable. Perfect for crashing somewhere after a big night out.

Booked for two nights, as a solo traveller discovering the Gold Coast to relocate. Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment which has an oven, stove, full sized fridge and the rest. Well set out rooms if you need a bit of space to spread out. Very clean too

Great location. Short stroll to the beach and perfect location for the restaurants in the center of Broadbeach. The choice is yours. The pool is great with shaded seating for those 33 degree days. The property managers are friendly and very helpful. Book your theme park tickets or transfer to the airport - no worries. Our room was ok. It... More

My Partner and I were looking for somewhere cheap to stay end of Dec particularly New Years Eve period and this was it! We checked in and the room wasn't even made up so that was a let down first up. When it was done the room was clean, neat and tidy, little TV with Foxtel and had a clean... More

We stayed here between the peak holiday period over Christmas. The price was very attractive for that time of year. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment. It was perfect for two people, with a decent bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, lounge and balcony. The location is perfect and in walking distance to restaurants, shops, casino and beach.

I love staying at Aruba. When travelling, you don't always need the 5 star quality (nor the 5 star price tag!!). I find Aruba a very good alternative when you are travelling on a budget. They are well kept, roomy, clean appartments with all the features and creature comforts that you need. They are centrally located in Broadbeach and within... More

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
