“A Gem of a Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

MVC is a little gem of a place and the people who work there are jewels! I can't say enough good things about the manager Christie and staff members Theo, Kevin, Pauleti and Agnes. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. The hotel is immaculately clean and well maintained and the hotel restaurant is outstanding, with a fresh breakfast buffet and excellent lunch and dinner menus. You can't beat the location--a few yards away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Plus easy access to Palm Beach, Arushi Beach and Oranjestad. You also can walk to several restaurants and other attractions, such as the Butterfly Farm, as well as to a large grocery store. Best of all: the hotel is very affordable. It's not fancy--no frills. But it is very clean and comfortable and a great value for the price.

We were looking for an affordable hotel, close to a nice beach with amenities close by. The MVC exceeded our expectations. Other reviewers were bang on about what you get: great service, clean rooms, one of the world's best beaches in a quiet and relaxing setting. You are close to a grocery store, very good restaurants and a bus stop right in front should you want to venture to Oranjestad or the high rise area. We cannot say enough about the staff, they make you feel at home. Thank you Christy, Theo, Cherrit and others for being so welcoming! We will surely be back.

We visisted the restaurant of MVC Eagle Beach during a stoppover at Aruba while cruising the Caribbean, and we found the food to be fantastic - excellent apple pies - and wonderful service. And Eagle Beach, fabolous white sands and crystal blue waters. We want to fly back to Aruba and stay at MVC Eagle Beach for a week og two next time.

this is a place to stay when you go to aruba with young children or don't want to pay too much. no frills, no pretentions, no fuss. but clean, cozy atmosphere. helpfull staff, safe surroundings, great rooms, small pool, but hey, who needs a big one when the best beach is less than a minute's walk away. this place used to be the weekend club house for the dutch marines - if it was the best place and best beach for them it surely is the best for us.

Hotel has great location across the street from Eagle Beach and near high rise and low rise hotel area. Simple clean rooms with mini-fridge,safe and free internet. If you like to spend your money on enjoying your vacation and not your room this is a great place with a great staff.

Great little Hotel, quiet, friendly, and a short cab or bus ride to everything. The staff is very helpfull no matter what the issue they will try to resolve the problem.Just across the street is beautiful Eagle Beach.If you are looking for big hotel ammenities you will not find them here, pool is very small, beds are extremely firm, rooms are basic but clean.The Tulip restaurant has very good and reasonably priced food.

Room Tip: 2nd floor, High numbers 110- 111- 112

This hotel isn't fancy, but it is reasonable. The beds were very firm, but I slept OK. The rooms have free WIFI and a mini-fridge. Showers were pretty small. The hotels on Palm Beach are nicer, but way more expensive. We took a few bus rides down to the Palm Beach area for the restaurants and shopping. When we checked out the beach near the high rise hotels, I was so glad to be at Eagle Beach! It is less crowded, more tranquil, and I even thought the sand was softer.
