La Quinta as I have wrote in previous reviews is a quiet low rise place. The staff tries its best to make your stay as trouble free as possible. It is a testament that the majority of the same staff is here after all these years. If you are looking for the excitement of the bigger hotels, this is not the place for you. Great for couples, families with young kids and older folks. The beach is right across the street and it is one of the best. The bar is run by Danny whose signature saying "Good Morning, Happy Birthday" will make happy hour that much more enjoyable. They now offer wi fi for $20.00 a week on all of your devices. Sad to say the wi fi was frustrating at times as it would go out as you walked around your unit. It also downloaded stuff very slowly.

Room Tip: Stay in the phase 1 section it has more charm and is closer to the beach. The pool is bigger at the...

We have come to LaQuinta for 20 years and every year it gets better. We share the same beach-Eagle Beach as the big hotels but it is so much quieter and more enjoyable because of the smaller scale. The staff are always there to help by bringing you a beach chair and making you comfortable. The rooms are clean although not as modern as some of the big hotels. I would recommend this everyday!

Room Tip: Phase 1 is older and quieter, phase II is better for kids as their pool is larger.

LaQuinta is a small "community" of 48 rooms with extraordinary staff that makes you feel like family every time you arrive, no matter how often you come. Everybody who goes there is just so happy. We have been going to Aruba for 12 years and found LaQuinta the best and bought a week 8 years ago and can't stay away. Eagle Beach is the best always clean and well maintained. Looking for another week to go along with our week 23 unit. This is always the best week of our year. This is the only week I can get an early tan while reading 4 to 5 books each visit. I don't get to do that any of the other 51 weeks of the year. I really want another week.

Very friendly, clean and family friendly resort. We love this place and hope to go back for many years to come. The pool bar was great and everyone was very nice. The front staff was very helpful and very friendly as well. It is also located by the beautiful Eagle beach.

We had the chance to stay at LQBR through a timeshare exchange. As with anyone who exchanges, we end up comparing any exchange unit with our home unit. Unfortunately, we found LQBR to be a significant downgrade. We were grateful to have had the chance to visit Aruba through this exchange. It had long been a destination we wanted to see.

The unit was across the street from Eagle Beach, one of trip advisors top ten beaches. While all beaches in Aruba are open to the public, this one is truly a public beach, as you walk through the parking area once crossing the street to get to it. We never had a problem getting a palapa, and the resort beach attendant was extremely helpful. Unfortunately the lounge chairs he had to offer were in poor condition, all with badly stained plastic straps and many with makeshift repairs.

We were lucky to have an "upgraded" two bedroom unit in the older Phase I. Aruba has a constant wind blowing (wind, not breeze) and these units must have been built before air conditioning as they have a very open layout to take advantage of the wind. The master bedroom was a loft upstairs without walls on either side. The secondary bedroom had several slatted windows to also allow ventilation. Unfortunately this resulted in no privacy as any sounds (snoring, gas, talking, etc.) could be heard in either room. The AC unit being an afterthought was a very large unit that made a lot of noise when running.

Amenities in the room were spartan and dated including a very old tube TV. I don't know if the kitchen was put in the hall or why they thought you should have to walk through this very narrow kitchen area to get to the main living area. While it had most necessary appliances including a small range, it had almost no counter space.

The resort offers wifi in some common areas near the pools. They charge $25 per device per week, and require you to bring each device to the office so they can enter the code. The wifi was VERY slow and dropped you frequently making almost unusable. (They did refund my $25 when I complained at checkout. Thank you)

For excitement the facility has pools in both the new and older phases. They are your generic rectangular pool. There are lounge chairs around the pool, but the ones near the rooms are the perceived property of the tenants of those rooms.

You get daily room cleaning by the staff. They were also quick to take care of some tiny ants we had in the bathroom, and the roaches we saw. (It's the tropics. Bugs happen). Generally the staff was pleasant. Since we were exchangers we had not bonded with the staff like many of the other reviewers.

The other guests were mostly regulars who come for a couple of weeks at a time and had been coming for many years being owners. There were no children that we saw. There were no scheduled activities except happy hour at the mini-bar next to the pool in Phase II. We did not eat at the restaurant as it did not interest us. We did attend happy hour where we got 2 8oz beers for $4. Daiquiris were 2 for one also at about $6.

Food and drinks are expensive all over the island, but we did find some good deals at the Alhambra casino which was a short walk away.

We will mark this as an interesting experience. I would recommend trying for one of the other timeshares on the beach rather than going to LQBR

What can I say but excellent! They are always cleaning and fixing up the resort. We have been staying at LaQuinta for 12 years now. Very pleasant staff and where else can you stay so close to Eagle Beach. Cannot wait until week 21 again.
