“Beach Beauty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Accommodations were MORE than spacious!! Large 1BR, 2 bathrooms, LR,DR, kitchen w/breakfast bar. Nice balcony facing the beach/ocean. On site pool, market,bar,restaurant , also across the street Mall with a market, several restaurants (Subway,Dunkin Donuts, Little Caesars Pizza) , sit down Chinese/Japanese Restaurant, Wine Bar ,Casino and,boutiques. Everything was very convenient . Staff was very friendly. This area is AWAY from the crowds and congestion of the big hotels and restaurants and beachs, which were only about 10 minutes away.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner or beach/ocean view

I have been going to the Aruba Beach Club for 24 years and I love everything about it. They call it "your home away from home" and that's how comfortable it feels. My timeshares are from mid-April until mid-May and I have many "Aruba" friends who are also there at that time. Part of the beauty of owning timeshares is seeing the same people year after year and becoming good friends. I travel to Aruba by myself but I never feel alone or uncomfortable because I know everyone. The staff at the ABC are always the same friendly familiar faces. The rooms are adequate with kitchens and are always very clean. I have found the front desk staff to be more than helpful and accomodating. They are always willing to help in any way possible. The entire island is very friendly. They know how important tourism is to their economy, so they tend to be very helpful and friendly to all tourists. The slogan "One happy island" is true. The beaches are beautiful, the weather is near perfect, the people are friendly and the sunsets are amazing what else could you ask for on vacation?

My husband and I have been to Aruba 6 times and plan to go again in Nov. It is our favorite place to vacation. Our stay at the ABC was the WORSE trip we have ever had on the island. The beach needs a lot of work. There are large rocks along the water's edge which the waves throw you into. One of our biggest complaints tho was the fact they charge you $7.00 each time you wanted to use the grill. With staying 3 weeks we grill out a lot and since the kitchen in the studio isn't a full kitchen you need to cook all meat on grill. This was the first place we had to pay to grill. With 5 grills at $7.00 an hr, this is quite a money maker for them. The other issue we had was the taxes they charged. We are use to paying the taxes....but they charged us $21.40 for a studio where we paid $17.20 for our 1 bedroom at the Divi Phoniex. We were so upset w/ the desk staff which were very rude and non-helpful, that we checked out and went to the Divi 2 days early. Upon check-out we were forced to pay the 2 day occupancy tax altho' we were not staying there. We had to leave the Divi a day early, but was not charged taxes for the night. Another way to overcharge the guest. We LOVE Aruba and will return many more times, but not to ABC, nor will we recommend it to anyone who asks for a place to stay.

This resort was beautiful. We had a second floor studio that overlooked the pool and the ocean. Every morning we looked out at a beautiful paradise. From the moment we walked into the ABC Club the staff was smiling and willing to help us. Our housekeeper cleaned everyday and our rooms was spotless. The beach is perfect with its white sand and aqua water. and pool area is huge and very inviting. Sunsets were fabulous. The restaurant on site was very good and offer all three meals. There were three happy hours at the beach bar with very friendly bar ladies. It is a perfect place to relax and enjoy a vacation.

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!
