We recently stayed at Aruba Beach Resort and the stay was fantastic from start to finish. The rooms were huge, facilities excellent and the managers were so kind and welcoming. The truly went over and above! There are lots of amazing resturants across the road and only a few minutes walk to beach. Would stay here everytime!

Hello and thank you for your review. We are sorry that you missed the information on booking platform you used, that clearly states there is a charge for the use of a sofa bed. Because of your situation I cut the rate for it's use by 66% to assist you and thought that to be a very fair offer to... More

Have been staying at Aruba Beach Resort for a number of years in the same room which we like. We have always been quoted an excellent room rate which is hard to beat for such a central location Nice garden retreat in the middle of Broadbeach

I have stayed here for work purposes the last few years. It is close to everything in Broadbeach and a very cheap stay. It is a basic apartment but what else do you need. If you want to pay more go elsewhere for the bells and whistles as this is an older style apartment, rooms ,,decor. Walk to beach, shopping,... More

We are a 3.5 star property and we like to think you get value for money. There are other accommodations around that are twice the cost of our rates.

We stayed here for a couple of nights and enjoyed our time here. The rooms were clean and the location was great, just a short walk to the beach. The free parking was also really useful. We didn't have a balcony on our room and were round the back of the hotel which was a shame as it meant our... More

Easy access to all the Broadbeach shops and restaurants. Also easy access to Gold Coast tram. Neat, clean and tidy although decor was a little dated. Very comfortable bed and ample room for two. Kitchen supplied with all utensils needed.

Arguably the best location on the Gold Coast. Just to get this straight Aruba Beach Resort is not the type of place to stay if you are after somewhere fancy with frills.
