We are not timeshare owners. Reserved room through their web site. Stayed there multiple times. Last time in May 2022 and going again in September. Would recommend ABC because hotels around become unreasonably expansive. Had updated room which was nice. Stayed for 11 days and did not have to change rooms on Saturday which was nice. Renovations did not disturb us besides one day when they painted room next to our and awful smell ended up in our room. I went to the front desk and asked maintenance guy to come look. He replaced aircon filter and check everything but said it is from the pint next door. We opened doors and turn on fan and it went away after a few minutes. We also had an issue with the back door not opening with the key, and again maintenance guy came almost immediately and replaced the door lock. Everything worked fine after. Kitchen was stocked OK, I would like to have more pots and pans, but whatever was OK. Cleaning ladies were excellent! They replaced dishwasher detergent, liquid soap, shower gel and bodywash every day. Plenty of towels, toilet paper, kitchen towels. There were plenty of beach chairs and palapas all the time. First raw was take before 6:00 A.M. though. Pool was clean and the water was nice. Front desk staff was inconsistent, some have good knowledge and helped us while the others had no clue and were useless. Two complains: 1. Beds were awful. Extremely soft and uncomfortable. Every night we ended up sugging in the middle one on top of another. 2. Not only they have very few parking spots for rented car near the front entrance but even some of these were unavailable or blocked by construction vehicles or some construction stuff. We scheduled a COVID antigen test a week before our flight back to US at Casa Delmar Medlab. The line (even though we scheduled an appointment but they give you a timeframe, 7:00 AM – 7:30 AM) was about 10 people and were going quickly. There were plenty of chairs near the entrance to the facility for people who can’t stand waiting. Got results in 9 hours. I would not recommend scheduling this test in your room as they use different company and early Saturday morning I saw a lot of elderly folks near the Casa Delmar concierge asking her to call that company as their flight was approaching but they never got the test results. We checked into our flight online Friday night. Filled out/submitted our attestation forms online as well. Results of COVID tests were in our emails. And airport ED check also came to our emails. So, no need to print anything. At the airport they asked us to show ED check in color/time and email with COVID test results. Make sure to take a screenshot of your check tickets to show when you entering the departure building. That was all. Even though it was Saturday, took us 45 minutes from the time we get in to the airport till we were at the gate.…
Overall ABC (Aruba Beach Club) was a very nice place to stay. The resort and the unit were clean but but unfortunately we got an older unit (they are upgrading all the rooms). We were not disturbed by any noise or remodeling, they were very respectful of their guests in this manner. The staff was friendly and helpful for the most part but the front counter did not necessarily 'go out of their way' to make the stay better with making recommendations or helping with reservations. PROS: location, clean rooms and common areas, HOT water with good pressure, stocked well if you were going to cook, etc. CONS: Beds were uncomfortable and the sheets a tad bit scratchy on sunned skin, lack of toiletries (The one trip I did not really pack toiletries because I normally don't really need to, I needed to! They only had wall unit dispensers for hand soap, body wash and shampoo so I had to purchase conditioner because I have long hair and spend a lot of time in the water); a lot of walking to get to our room and lastly, limited parking if you rent a car. Overall I really enjoyed the trip and yes I would stay here again just more aware of what to bring and expect. …
15 minutes from airport. Friendly accommodating helpful staff. Low key . many condos on the beach . Best happy hours, great food. Most beautiful beach on the island. Have been returning for 27 years! No island or resort compares to ABC on Aruba.
Overall, my wife and I liked the Aruba Beach Club. Check-in was easy and the room was availble before the advertised time. The front desk people were vey helpful, courteous and professional. The room was clean; and the cleaning service did a great job. The bed was comfortable and bathroom was clean and had enough space. The provided us helpful and accurate information about how and where to get Covid tested to get back into the U.S. They provided us a timely and accurate bill.
Love the beach, the pool, the people. The location is perfect! Alhambra Casino is directly across the street along with a Market, 5 restaurants, Dunkin Donuts, and Baskin Robbins Ice cream store. Down the street, about 2-minute walk, there are more restaurants, .Ellioti's Ristorante Italiano being one of our favorites. You can grab a mini but from the Casino to the high rise area for only $2 per person.
The staff was awesome!!! Whether it was a maintenance issue or simply connecting us to Wi-Fi, they were awesome! The resort is located in the heart of many attractions. We will definitely consider returning to Aruba Beach Club for a wonderful vacation.
Beach and pool area is beautiful and well maintained. Sand is powder soft and the ocean floor is sandy not rocky. Beach towels are $25 if you don't return them to the towel hut. We stayed in a studio unit with partial kitchen. The kitchen seemed well stocked, but was missing random items. No measuring cups, salt/pepper, dishwasher. The bed and pillows were very uncomfortable, but we were in a non-renovated unit so maybe that will be part of the upgrade? Housekeeping 5 days a week was a nice surprise. The resort has a few good convenience stores. Nice large library. Laundry was $2.50 for wash and $2.50 for dryer. One tennis court was inop. The other was often locked. I had to ask security to unlock it everyday, which got annoying. I was asked several times throughout the week if I was a resort guest. This was while I was sitting on the beach or playing tennis. That also got very annoying, and unwelcome. Overall very good accommodations and would stay here again. …
Very enjoyable stay here. I typically stay near high rises but decided to jump on the opportunity. Great staff, updated room the bar had happy hr 3xs a day. Wasn’t over crowded at pool, beach and we were able to get a hut everyday. Tranquility we were looking for. Still not far from casino and shops. Def will return and recommend to friends and family.😁👍🏝
We recently stayed at the Aruba Beach Club resort for a second year in a row. This year we were fortunate to get one of the renovated rooms. It was beautiful! Loads of storage space and a well thought out design. The grounds were well maintained, staff all pleasant and helpful, and plenty of restaurants within walking distance. The beach was larger this year than last. I don't think the resort was at full capacity so no problem getting palapas for the beach. We felt very comfortable and safe with all the security personnel at the resort. We will absolutely return again in the future!
We love abc. The renovations are very attractive. the lunch menu is really good. The view cannot be beat. Our maid is really accommodating and very smiley and pleasant. Ocean quality was really nice. good security.
