I recently stayed at Aruba Surf Resort, and it is very clean and comfortable and in a quiet street, and close to the beach, Pacific Fair shopping centre, Jupiters casino and Broadbeach Tavern. I believe it must be one of the best value for money hotels at Broadbeach.

The only front-facing room available to us however was on the third floor, which meant a workout - especially on arrival day taking up our luggage... More
