“Wonderful!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

This was our second trip to Aruba and thanks to the wonderful people at the Costa Linda Beach Resort we plan on making this a yearly event! It is situated on the most beautiful beach in The Caribbean! There is not one thing negative to say about this resort. Yes it's a time share resort but no one was pushing us to attend meetings or listen to lectures to purchase. The resort speaks for itself, once you stay there you want to buy there! I can see why people feel at home there!
There is something for everyone: relaxation, activities with the children, excursions, and access to wonderful restaurants.
Thanks for making our vacation wonderful!

Stayed April 2013

We just returned from our yearly trip to Aruba and the Costa Linda. This is my 11th or 12th year coming to the CL. It really has become a home away from home for us. I really cant say enough about the staff. From Wilmer helping with our bags and everything else, to pool activities with Andreas, and the wonderful bar staff lead by Ed. The grounds are always kept so nice and pristine. Eagle beach has got to be one of THE best beaches in the Caribbean. We really cant wait for next year, we would NOT consider another resort on the island of Aruba. Thank you Costa Linda for always making us feel welcome year after year!

We haven't had this enjoyable vacation in years. The resort is beautiful, comfortable, and clean. There is always something to do or you can just relax on the warm sunny beach. The staff is friendly and helpful with any question or problem you might have. Esther set up some wonderful tours (De Palm Island was the best ever-wanted to stay longer). Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: They are all good, but anything with an ocean view is great. The ground floor is the best, because...

We had a wonderful time at Costa Linda. The beach is great. The sand is soft and white. Our room was a two bedroom on the first floor. Good access to pool and beach. We had a very helpful concierge, Esther. She helped with with any questions and made reservations for us as well as making recommendations. I would recommend this place.

We had another excellent stay at the Costa Linda. The beach was phenomenal with soft white sand and beautiful turquoise water. It is on the best section of Eagle Beach. The surf from Hurricane Sandy (Aruba is out of the hurricane belt) actually made the beach better, believe it or not.

All the rooms are now renovated with completely new tile throughout, new cabinets in the kitchen and both full baths, new appliances in the full kitchen and the master bath is now remodeled and much much nicer with a beautiful and more functional walk-in shower.

As usual the staff if excellent and pleasant.

The owners approved the removal of personal items (to be stored in a secure place) from palapa huts by the beach in an attempt to stop early risers who put towels under the palapa and then walk away for hours, thereby stopping others from enjoying the gorgeous view. This a a very good and long overdue process that was the pet peeve of many. Now we all have an opportunity for a good fabulous location at the beach. It seems to have worked. All resorts should do this, but this is the only one that I have actually seen enforce the rules.

Now for he only negative. The restaurant is very expensive for a place to dine at, at a timeshare resort as well as the drinks. Fortunately, all units have a full kitchen, large fridge/freezer, plenty of cabinets (all the kitchen amenities in most folks homes) and you can simply cook your own food and buy your own booze/ wine/ beer at the store and party in your 2-3 bedroom suite or at the beach. Now some may say that they are on vacation and should not have to cook. To those individuals I say, don't stay at a timeshare that has a full kitchen, stay at a hotel. There are dozens of restaurants that are better than the one on site and cheaper too if you want to dine out, which we do about half the nights.

They now have a kids small playground and movie night on the beach for kids and then two hours later for adults.

Room Tip: Top floors in the middle of the resort offer extraordinary views unimpeded by the palm trees as well...

We just returned from a week's stay at the completely renovated Costa Linda Beach Resort in Aruba. We have been to Aruba seven times, but this was our first visit to Costa Linda and we were very impressed. We stayed in a two bedroom suite, No. 2023. It was located close to the beach and the pool on the north side of the complex. The interior had been completely remodeld with beautiful granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms and a roomy, very nice tiled walk in shower in the master bath. A fully applicanced kitchen included new dishwasher , full sized refrigerator, cook top and oven, microwave and disposal.

The beach at Costa Linda is among the finest you will find anywhere with very fine, white sand and almost no rocks. The surf is just enough to make it interesting, but not strong enough to be dangerous. Although the temperature hovered around the high 80's the constant breeze made it seem much cooler.

Housekeeping does an excellent job of cleaning the rooms, etc and are also very friendly. In fact all of the staff at this resort is courteous and outgoing. There are three restaurants on the site and we took advantage of two of them. They were both quite good.....Pizza Bob's and Elliottis. More about them in another separate reviews.

We love Aruba and Costa Linda has moved to top of our list. In fact we liked it so much that we are returning this Fall for another visit.

Room Tip: The north buildings are a little quieter. All of the rooms are the same depending on your choice of...

This was our fourth time back. We do not own here, but we'd like to. Great for families, couples, friends, etc. The remodeling work done over the past couple of years really makes the rooms top notch. Granite counters, tile bathrooms ... You're home away from home. We love getting comfortable here and have no trouble doing so. Staff is very helpful, especially Robert. Thanks Robert for always finding us the perfect place on the beach. And Rossy brings us great cool drinks! Just a great place to stay!
