“Aruba Beach Club”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

This resort is fantastic if you have no children, its a quiet resort, with a good beach. We found that other parts of the island have much better swimming and snorkeling. There are NO fish to see here. The pool and beach are small and crowded, but relaxing, and did find people sleeping at 4am at the huts to hold place. The rules and regulations are a little ridiculous, $25,00 per towel, and if you don't bring it/them back you are charged per towel. Staff at front desk are not helpful, slow, and really aren't motivated. We went down to Baby beach, to go snorkel and honestly a waste of time. The coral is dead here and have about a 15 ft stretch to see fish. The water was beautiful and shallow, good for smaller tykes, but current is tough, don't forget the charges here for chairs, umbrellas and floats. We didn't stay longer than 1 1/2 hours and we were bored.
We loved the Tortuga Bar and grill, and quite honestly the better food we had all week, and prices were the most reasonable anywhere on the island. Loved it !! Across the street at mini-mall was a little Caesars pizza- cheese pizza $38.00, Dunkin Donuts was close to the states prices, Alhambra casino, along with a piano bar and a few "I love Aruba" stores.
As an Adult, I was content and fine staying at this timeshare. Kids found it dull and boring. We had to go to high rise, and Oranjestad to have any action. We rented a car from ABC, $55.00 per day and was great for one day, and a $500 hold. A car is NOT needed here, but we rented one so we could see a little more than the basic taxi drops. From ABC to high rise is $8.00 a short 10 min trip. Stores do not open in Aruba till 10am if your lucky. If your an early riser forget it.
Aruba Beach Club, nice for adults, not kids. No amenities what so ever, just the basics. It would be nice if they coffee available for guests before 10am. No coffee supplied in room, either.

Three times daily they have happy drinking hour, which is nice. But really would have preferred the high rise area with the kids, so much more to see. Resorts are nicer, bigger, but very crowded. I gave Aruba overall a 7 of 10, with their dying coral, ect. And ABC for adults 8 of 10, and kids a 4 of 10.
NOT impressed with Aruba................

We were just in aruba for 63 days from dec 29th thru march 2nd where the only day in 63 where we couldnt go to the beach or pool deck was jan 15 th. 62 days of perfection. We stayed at the divis marriotts and everywhere else as we were gypys but when u factored in simplicity peacefulness location friendliness of staff including maids people at the resort aruba beach club was my best pick. Studio units are labeled as superior units and were more than adequate . The resort will not wow u but when u factor in all those items i listed it was the best.the bar at the resort the tortuga grill has the best happy hour on the island as i have done them all.not only u dont have to get the same drink for two for ones all drinks are half off including premiums!! Every drink is half off and if u have the bar manager LYN pour your drinks like we did we were tanked several nights.lyn is the best i was drinking Jack and cokes with amstel bright chaser! Aruba beach club beat them all cute and clean and friendly

I acquired this rental through Redweek.com and scored big! Our unit # 307 is overlooking the beautiful blue ocean and pristine beach. The unit is a one bedroom (2 Double beds + a pull out sofa) with a full kitchen & balcony.
The Alhambra Casino is directly across the street which is very convenient if you like to gamble. There are golf cart type shuttles that will take you free of charge from one resort to another so a car is not really necessary. The connecting resort. Casa Del Mar has a thrifty car rental if you want to explore the island.
The hotel is clean, the employees are friendly and your experience should be heavenly! ENJOY & RELAX : Oh, one more thing, the food at the Tortuga is excellent...I am 51 years old and from NY and have never tasted such a great burger, really!

Loved this place. Great location right on the water. So nice it was a two story building so it made it easy to get anywhere on property. Staff was friendly and professional. Loved the Tortuga restaurant and bar. Inexpensive and good breakfast. Room was cleaned everyday and provided untencils for cooking. Loved the big frig and shower. Can not wait to return. Ps look for pancheeta- little kitty in pool house.

I stayed at the Aruba Beach Club Jan 2013 with my family and it was awesome. It's a low key place so if you are looking for a crazy party seen this is NOT the place for you. The resort is kept very clean, it's right on the water, and everyone was so nice. We enjoyed being able to walk from our room to the pool to the beach. Perfect place for a vacation. Also, the location of the resort is great because you are near everything!!! I cannot wait to go back to ABC!!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an ocean view! They have 1 building that is across the street so make sure you d...
