“Relaxing vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

Our stay was just as I expected after reading the reviews. This was our first stay at the Casa Del Mar. It was a timeshare exchange for us. The unit was very nice and comfortable,not so much for the living room furniture. Beds were very comfortable.We had a fabulous ocean view from our balcony.Morning breakfast outside is wonderful.What a nice change from the northeast weather.The beach is beautiful,great for long walks. The ocean is more calm as you walk north.Just a few bits of information. There is no dishwasher, this was a surprise. The housekeeping people will do your dishes.I am not one to leave dishes in the sink and I like the idea that hot water is cleaning my eating utensils, just me.You can find free wifi from Matthews and at the Aruba Beach Club on the terrace. I agree with another reviewer that the front desk staff were not very friendly. Maybe they need a refresher on the "one happy island" attitude. We would definitely return here someday.

Dear Stsdeb,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. I am glad that you enjoyed your vacation and the reprieve from the weather in the Northeast. The Casa del Mar rooms are arguably the nicest in Aruba due to their size and the close proximity to the water. You are literally steps from the Caribbean and, as you mention, the beach is wonderfully pristine and uncrowded. I find that, due to the fact that the Resort has only 147 rooms, it is easy to have your private space in which to unwind. The shopping and restaurants at the Resort and neighboring casino and shopping mall add to the wonderful amenities available here.

We hope that you decide to return to Aruba and the Casa del Mar Beach Resort and look forward to welcoming you back.

Sincerely,

Bob Curtis
General Manager

Has no idea what to expect so was pleasantly surprised at this facility. Staff was incredible, lots of "events" and very, very clean. Very convenient with shops/restaurant/casino across the street. Matthew's (connected) was exception with exceptional staff. It was lots of fun, very relaxing and I highly recommend!

Room Tip: No bad rooms!!

Dear Wortman70,

Thank you for writing such a nice review of the Resort and for the rating of five. I am glad that you had such a pleasantly surprising stay with us. It is always nice to find a hotel or Resort that exceeds expectations and in my opinion that starts and ends with Cleanliness and Service. Our room attendants take great pride in their work and all of the employees love this Resort. Thank you as well for the nice comments on Matthews Restaurant. The food quality and service at Matthews is top notch and we are proud to have them as part of the Resort.

We hope you return again,

Sincerely,

Bob Curtis

We were guests of our friends time share. We had a great time. The beach was unbelievable. The condo was clean and fresh and housekeeping did a great job every day. The front counter staff were not so pleasant though-my only complaint.

We were able to rent easily from an owner stateside. The rooms are very well cared for and spacious. The Market, as well as other grocery stores, nearby enabled us to keep the kitchen area in use with growing children. The grounds are well kept with a nice pools for little and big ones using it. Security is around and definitely keep the rules posted enforced, most of them anyways. The beach area is clean and well kept. The only down side is trying to get up early enough to "reserve" our chairs/shade area in a timely manner. That is the one rule that doesn't seem to be enforced. If you are coming for a family oriented facility, then this is the place to choose. Renting a car would be an added bonus.

We did a timeshare exchange and I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the resort to see the refurbishments that had been made. We stayed in the presidential suites which are right on the beach. The kitchens have been remodeled, the rooms have new flat screen TVs and new drapes and bedding. Many of the photos of the resort are outdated and do not do it justice. The onsite restaurant, Matthews has great food and fun atmosphere and great happy hour prices. The sister resort, Aruba Beach Club, next door has another great restaurant, Ricardo's. Ricardo is very hands on and made a point of visiting our table on each of our visits. He sent a complimentary after dinner drink to our table one evening. The beach area is beautiful and you can walk it for miles. One thing that really stood out about the resort and Aruba in general was that every person we encountered was really friendly. Our housekeeper, Carmen was especially great, she kept our room spotless and always had a smile on her face, This is one of the few timeshares that has daily housekeeping service, which was a real perk. The resort is on the quieter side of the island but there was still plenty to do at the two bars in the evenings If you're looking for more nightlife you may want to stay on the Palm Beach side or plan on taking a short drive to get there. I had read about the difficulties in finding a chickee hut but we didn't have any problems and we never got up early to claim a spot. The pool and hot tub do close early (7 PM), so be forewarned. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and everyone in our group agreed that it was the perfect spot for us. We were in room 1213 which had a partial ocean view (although it took some maneuvering to block out the construction at the Divi nextdoor). The resort has a website where you can view their floor plans if you know what room you're assigned to.
