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

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

The Broadbeach Jazz Festival is an event we look forward to every year with a lot of people booking in early to reserve a room. You really need to book early to avoid disappointment. 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
