“The place to be on Sundays”
Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

We love to go to Nikky's beach on Sundays when every beach on the island bursts with people, and loud (LOUD) music.
They have great service, Danny is awfully nice, chairs with or without mattresses are good and the shade is mandatory, even in January. There's a very good DJ and not so good live music, a rapper/crooner mixture of Luis Miguel / Pitbull / Elvis that starts singing and continues rapping absolutely everything. Even so, it's better than the huge amplifiers in the back of the locals'cars in every stretch of public beach. The drinks are great and the food is excellent, amazing for a beach bar. I highly recommend the salads and the snack platter de luxe, perfect combination of every sinful fried item in the menu, yummy.... We'll miss you guys for a whole year!

“Fantastic place to spend a day in Aruba!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

My husband & I returned to Nikky Beach for the first time this year.
It has a great location on Surfside Beach. We had several beers + great tasting and reasonable grouper sandwiches.
Jorge, the owner, is gracious and enthusiastic and the bartenders and wait staff are efficient and friendly.
Nikky beach has it all, the ocean, the pool, loungers, nice bar & restaurant. You can watch as the planes make their landing approach and as the cruise ships approach and depart.

“Vacationing in Aruba for 34 years. Loved Nikky”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Nikky Beach is one of the most popular restaurant, bar, pool, beach front in Aruba. The chairs on the beach are all wicker topped with a matress and covered with a clean sheet for your comfort and cleanliness. The staff all worked very hard to make sure our visit to Nikky was enjoyable and memorable. Drinks and food are great. Be sure to try the bang bang shrimp!! Be careful with the taxi drivers they will try and discourage you from going to Nikky, because the cab fare to Nikky is less than if you went to the beaches by the high rise hotels.

“Need to change management or owner”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

The place is horrible. The food is okay. The bar, chairs and tables are disgusting...forget about the beach furnature ...they look like they been eaten by rats. Its such a shame...the potential of that place is high. Owner is a good for nothing with a smart mouth. He can't even treat people with decency. He needs realize that he is only an owner not the president of aruba. If you want to a good beach bar this isn't the place. I've been there before when it was managed by other people and it was the same owner and it was a great place. That's why i went back...but never again.

“All time Favourite Beach Bar in Aruba!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

This is by far one of the best places I have been to in Aruba. The atmosphere is great. We have spent many days lounging by the pool, drinking cocktails at the swim up bar, watching the amazing sunsets, having siestas on the comfy beds and dancing on the sand to the cool tunes they always play. The waiter service is fantastic, they even made us our Favourite cocktail even though it wasn't on the menu. Food was really tasty and presented well, we recommend the carpaccio and tuna tataki. Perfect place day or night! Will be sure to return soon!
