When my husband and I stepped from the taxi onto the MVC Eagle Beach property, we were met with waving arms and shouts of hello. This warm welcome shocked us; we've stayed in Aruba seven other times (our first stay at MVC) and those related hotels do not compare at all to MVC's award-winning hospitality. Christy, the spitfire who runs MVC's day-to-day operations, is the key to its success. Before we arrived, I emailed her to request a first floor room because of my difficulty climbing stairs and also to tell her it was my husband's 60th birthday. She gave us an upgrade (more space) and on my husband's birthday she, along with other staff, presented him with a bottle of champagne on the beach. Hats off to the staff at Tulip, MVC's wonderful restaurant, and the beautiful, hardworking women who cleaned up after us each day. The rooms are very clean, the food is super delicious and the property is very quaint and quiet. Reasonable rates, too. (The pool is terribly small; for adults, it's a wading pool.) We had the best vacation at MVC and can't wait to return, IF there's availability after all the positive reviews!
