We had a great 2 weeks in Aruba at the Costa Linda. Friendly service from everyone at the resort, and a very clean property. The 2 bedroom we had was facing the beach we were able to watch the amazing sunsets every night from the beach or our private balcony. Thank you so much Costa Linda!! Until next time.

Room Tip: Room 2037 is facing the beach great sunsets with private balcony

I've been going to Aruba for about 8 years and can say that Costa Linda is my favorite hotel and has the best beach on the island. The hotel is always clean, everything works, is always in tip top shape. The pool and beach are great, large beach and is never crowded like up at the high rises.
Its in the middle of down town and the high rises so not much for shopping in walking distance but buses run all day.

My wife and I recently had a great week in Aruba thanks to Costa Linda. The service, property, and attention to detail were excellent. My compliments to the entire staff especially Edwin, Richard, and, Lisa, at the Waters Edge Restaurant. She was outstanding! Do not miss this restaurant during your stay.....excellent. I cannot remember a better experience on any vacation than what Costa Linda offered.

This is a timeshare resort, but unlike many timeshares around the Caribbean this one has daily housekeeping ( like hotels). The majority of units are identical 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom. There is a few 3 bedrooms. Having a full kitchen is nice if you want to have your morning coffee/breakfast on a patio instead of going to a restaurant. The resort is quiet, it might not appeal to younger crowd, but the BEACH is the BEST on the island. Overall this is a very nice vacation spot, I would come back anytime.

Room Tip: Renting from the owners will save you big money.

Just love staying here for 2 weeks. the staff is accommodating and go out of their way to make our stay memorable. The grounds are impeccably maintained. The condo was clean and updated recently. It is a quiet resort for the family or older clientele. The beach is the best on the island with many chickees available daily. The food especially breakfasts were reasonably priced and delicious. Just love the Zumba and pool aerobic classes. Can't even think of any negatives. The security staff is always visible so we feel so safe and taken good care of. What a great place to vacation each year !

It was our 1st experience in renting timeshare. We found unit available for our dates on Costa Linda's website and the whole process was pretty easy. We e-mailed owner, confirmed deal, called Costa Linda to make sure the person was an owner with good record, send money thru our bank and got confirmation e-mail from the hotel.
Before arriving I called and e-mailed with request of the crib and high chair. We rented 2 bedroom units on 3rd floor with good view of the pool and partial view of the sea. We arrived to Costa Linda about 1 hour before official check-in time with our groceries we bought on the way. Line was there but process was quick and they actually checked us in before 4pm (official check-in time). We paid for the Internet $40 for high speed for the week right away.
We were pleased with unit layout and amenities. Crib was set and high chair was there. There are 2 bathrooms and "twin" bedroom is far enough for privacy from main ("king") bedroom.
Living room has roomy balcony with a view of the pool and sea, small bedroom has a view of the common corridor and main bedroom on the same side as living. There are at least 2 flat screen TVs (I don't remember if twin bedroom has a TV), big walk-in shower in master and bathtub/shower it twin bedroom. Kitchen has enough utensils and pots and pans for home cooking, big fridge. The huge plus is ice machines on the floor; it was very convenient for taking cooler on the beach.
We loved beach and playground for kids. A lot of palapas. Security guys sometimes come few times at the morning and ask for your room number which was a little annoying. They were watching around the pools and even once they asked me to wash my sandy feet (and I was not going enter the pool!) which was also a little strange... Every morning guy was cleaning sand from some game field with the gas blower which made us leave the beach. Fumes were ruining everything. But it was not long and I understand they need to do it. I just thought they could do it when nobody is around relaxing - may be earlier at the morning or later at night.
The week we went there were a lot of Spanish families with kids of all ages from Venezuela and our 2yo grandson enjoyed a company.
They enforced their rule that children under 3yo are not allowed in a main pool which is overkill. Kids wear swimming diapers anyway. Kid’s pool is small and it was a little dirty. We saw pieces of band aids and toilet paper (?) there. We mostly took our grandson to the beach but after returning he got some kind of fungal infection and I think it's a pool or towels. Or washing stations on a beach (who knows). And of course we bathed him after each pool and sea time. I understand it can happen anywhere so not blaming hotel for that.
The crib we got was completely broken and we did not even noticed in at 1st night.
We stopped by at front desk and they immediately sent repair man who could not do anything - crib was dead. He called and another crib was delivered within 30 minutes. It was very small, very deep (you need to throw baby there) with very thin mattress. Our 2yo barely fit there. It was the only one they had. I was promised that they will buy a new one and deliver but it probably happened another week. It was not what we expected for or grandson far away from home.
We enjoyed live music 2 nights (saxophone and violin), we ate lunch and had few drinks at the bar and beach (there is drink service at the beach but only one girl was taking orders and serving them so you need to look for her.
Beach is very good at this part of Eagle beach. We rented the car and went to other beaches too and there is good big parking by the hotel.
Overall we liked Costa Linda and would go there again but be more cautious about common places like pool, etc. for the baby.
We did not notice any noise problems, service was good, cleaning and towels changing were by request.
If you bring your groceries there is a bell boy who will help you to bring them to your unit. Nice touch.
It's a family place so if we will go with grandson again we'll choose Costa Linda. If we will go as a couple we'll choose other favorite places for us.
