This was our 8th trip to Aruba & The Aruba Beach Club!! This year we stayed July 13-21. We own a timeshare on Cape Cod with Interval International every other year, so we trade into the Beach Club & on the off year we go onto the members web site & rent from one of them.
We usually stay in a studio, but for some reason Intervale gave us a 1 bedroom, so we stayed in room 307, overlooking the Beach Club & great overall views. Out back on our floor which is overlooking the parking lot, we saw some BEAUTIFUL sunrises!!! Our room was very nice, very clean & the AC worked just fine. Nice new Flat screen TV's, really awesome balcony. Really enjoyed sitting out there early in the morning, so peacfull, there was a bright yellow parrot flying around very cool to see!! We could see the ocean, one day a cruise ship was out there!!. Can't say enough great things about the housekeeping, they came every day, very pleasant & thorough!!
The front desk - well they are the BEST!! Liza & her staff were so welcoming , friendly & very helpful. I was also so pleased to have finnally met Ida in reservations, we have e-mailed but this year I introduced myself. And as for Patricia & her awesome staff in the restuarant, they are just like talking to someone in your family. LOVE them. We had breakfast every day & they always had a big smile, & I might add that some of them work long shifts, day thru 10PM!!!! The breakfasts are great, love the omlets with gouda cheese, & of couse my favorite blueberry pancakes!! My better half usually had the breakfast special or eggs always piping hot!!! We ate on the all you can eat BBQ night, delish, my better half had seconds, I couldn't eat all my first!!!! The rest. is located right on the beach, so beautiful to sit there & look out onto that all the time. I'd like to also mention a very hardworking towel Lady, I apologize I cannot remember her name, but to sit there in that heat 10-6, WOW & the groundskeeper, you can see the pride in his work, & the pool lady does a great job every day keeping the pool looking so clean. Last but not least Security was very visable all week, always a smile when spoken to.
The beach was in great shape, although the surf was really rough a couple of days, so a little step down to the water, no big deal though. We never had trouble getting a papala. Loved hearing the entertainment during happy house all week. Steel drums & 2 young men singers, really great job. As you can tell we really do love it there we just feel really comfortable & safe.
Love the Silver shop on site we have bought a few things there, I think he has pretty good price & I do like the merchandise he has.
We are looking forward to hopefully going again next year. We realize these are very hardworking people & we appreciated them so much!! Once again we like to send a BIG thank you to all of the staff at the Beach Club!!
