“The Centrum Silver of Aruba”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We decided to stay at the Aruba Beach club on a whim, in addition to the fact that we have family with timeshares on this property. As other posters have mentioned,it is an older property. I've been told that it is one of the first timeshare properties on the island. Despite being old, it is well maintained, very clean, and has one of the best sandy beaches I've ever visited. The pools are OK, but do not have a swim up bar (which is a fantastic feature) like some of the other properties on the island. However, the pool bar is good, with good drinks, great staff, and 2 for 1 happy hours every day. The crowd on the property is older and mostly retirees from the Northeast U.S.
Amenities include a laundromat, internet cafe, sundries, a casual restaurant, and other shops. WiFi is available for a fee. Go to wifi-aruba.com for rates and instructions on how to get access. I purchased a one week package for $35. I tested the internet speed and it is approximately 1mbps, which is a bit too for skype or streaming video, but adequate for viewing web pages.

There is a casino nearby (Alhambra) that was recently refurbished, along with a new marketplace next to it that has some shops, a fancy wine bar, restaurants, and some home chain restaurant favorites such as Baskin-Robbins, Dunkin Donuts, and Little Caesar's Pizza.

Overall, I would not recommend the Aruba Beach Club for anyone under the age of 50. There are better choices on the island such as the nearby Marriot properties which are better for younger adults and couples with small children. In addition, the price of the room per night for non-timeshare folks was a bit high considering what you get for your money.

Room Tip: Lower level rooms on the ocean side will allow you to easily walk from you patio to the beach or poo...

We go every March for 10-14 days and stay here. It is nice, the people are really nice. Their wifi service is terrible we can never get it to work correctly.

There are almost no young couples here, definitely a much older crowd but that makes it a nice place to relax. Everything closes early so don't come here looking for a beach party, just relaxation.

The beach on the left side and middle of the resort (when you are looking at the water) is MUCH nicer than on the right side - there's red ants there and they attack.

This is an older facility that shows some wear but is kept in great shape. The staff is very good. The rooms are average sized with decks.. The pool is very nice. The beach is great. They have a nice bar with great bartenders. My wife loved the salads and I had some great burgers there. This is an older crowd. I wouldn't suggest this If you have infants or young children either. If you want to be in the middle of all the action, then you have to stay in the high rise area. This is a GREAT place to get away from it all and just chill out. There are plenty of restaurants in Aruba that you can drive to or take a short cab ride to.. We will return.

Room Tip: Get a high numbered room like 235 or higher but an odd number.

We just returned from our honeymoon, and the Aruba Beach Club was exactly what we were looking for. There were not a lot of young couples there, definitely an older crowd, but it's so easy to get a cab and head over to the high rise area if you're looking for nightlife. The resort itself is nothing fancy, but the service and hospitality was great. We ate a few times at the Tortuga Bar and were always pleased with the food. The beach was quiet, and in August it was easy to get a prime spot without having to wake up at 5am. We loved having the kitchen in the room, that way we could make breakfast and lunch on our own. There's also a great wine and piano bar across the street called Fusion that we loved going to. Overall, our stay was quiet and relaxing, and we will definitely be returning to the Aruba Beach Club in the future.

This older but updated timeshare has the charm of Aruba. Staff is super friendly, beach is calm and kid friendly. The folks staying at this resort have been coming to Aruba and staying at ABC for many years , this alone will tell you that this resort is doing it correctly.

The staff makes you feel at home even if you just visiting from another resort.
Rooms are OK, clean, and have been updated many times over the years. again this is a older resort not much you can do except rebuild.
If your looking for that old Aruba charm, the Aruba Beach Club has it.

Room Tip: Most rooms are facing the pool , Beach is a short walk from any room.

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!!
Sincerely
Kathy & Jim Cedrone
