I really lucked out staying at the Gold Coast. They are building new condos, and luckily I was the first to stay in one of the brand new condos! Absolutely beautiful. From the time I arrived, the host greeted me, told me about the villa, amenities, etc. She provided complementary gifts of snacks, drinks & a reusable bag, which is actually very convenient since Aruba has a promise of keeping their island clean by eliminating plastic. Everything was super clean, as you can imagine being brand new. I have absolutely no complaints and will be requesting this villa next time I'm back!
The property we stayed at was good and comfortable for what we were looking for. I don’t recommend spending your $ and eating at the restaurant on the property as the actual meal is not good, we were served stale food, the lady that was running the bar or took our orders basically kicked us out of the pool area that surrounds the main pool due to an event at the pool that residents had no advance notice about and no single sign mentioning they had a private event. It seems they rent out the main pool a lot which is a bummer for residents since that’s one main attraction for most travelers to book their properties as the beach is not nearby and you will need a car to drive to the nearest beach. Property management may want to consider hiring better staff at their restaurant or train the current staff to communicate in a polite/professional manner with their residents. …
We had the best time here. Everything was perfect and everyone enjoyed it. We were a group of 7 people: twins of 4 year old, 3 x mid-30s and 2 x 60+. We enjoyed the feeling home-atmosphere, the swimming pools and the quietness of the resort.
Loved our stay. Place had everything we needed. Comfoofor four people. Grille on patio. Beautiful amenities really close. Golf course around the corner. Wonderful restaurant on the premises. Beach about a 15 minute drive.
A beautiful place to stay with all the amenities. Good restaurant on the premises and only 5-10 minute drive to everything. Great beaches 2 minutes away. Weather was 82° every day and since the island is a desert there is no humidity and you never sweat.
