“great staff & great stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

We ended up here for one night after our flight was canceled. The staff were extremely accommodating in all of our needs. Our room was spacious and we had a balcony overlooking the pool area. We didn't utilize it but our room was equipped with a lovely kitchenette with dining area which would definitely come in handy on a more extended stay. Overall great place to stay.

We love ABC! We have stayed there four times in the last six years or so. Its very quiet and relaxing. The pool is nice, the bar is cute. If you're looking for a relaxing low key vacation, this is the place for you.

For night life, the Alhambra Casino is right across the street, along with stores and Fusion, the AMAZING martini bar. I will always stay at ABC when we are in Aruba.

Even been a low rise hotel you can enjoy, a quiet and all the beach around noord area. I went there with 3 friends and stayed in Two bedroom suite and we felt comfortable inside also your the services provides by the front desk enough information and help us to find fun places and some tours companies.

This is my second visit to this hotel and i will come back to the carnivals.

Room Tip: Make your booking with time, and ask first all the details and they will give enough information.

I've been to ABC many times, it is my home away from home. Have travelled extensively, Aruba is the best. The weather, the food, the beaches and the friends made and reunited every year. The staff at every turn are all equally friendly and helpful.

Aruba Beach Club is in the low rise section of Aruba, right on the beach across the street from the Alhambra Casino and shopping complex which is part of the Divi resorts. It was about a 0 minute drive from the airport in heavy Saturday traffic. It is an older, low rise building which shares a lobby and facilities with the adjacent Casa Del Mar.

Check in was efficient and uneventful. We were assigned Unit 110 on the ground floor which faced the Casa del Mar pool, and was near the back of the resort close to the Casa del Mar lobby. The resorts are small enough that this was not a problem.

The unit was older, and furnishings were clean but uneventful. Our studio unit was adequate for 2 adults, but it would be crowded for more in the unit. It was glorified hotel room, with 2 queen beds, a flat screen tv, dresser, small 4 person dining table with chairs, one sitting chair, and partial kitchen with small sink, cooktop, coffee maker, full size refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom was a bit dated, no separate dressing area, single sink, and only a decent sized walk-in shower, but no tub.

ABC has a good beachfront restaurant, Ricardo's, where we had one dinner and breakfast. The adjacent Casa del Mar had a similar, slightly larger beachfront restaurant, Matthews, which we also enjoyed.

The beach, pools and weather are highlights here, as well as the exceptionally friendly staff, which is common in Aruba.

We used the spa and enjoyed excellent, reasonably priced massages.

As is common in many resorts, guests put belongings on loungers at the beach and pool which have palapas for sun protection early in the morning, so late sleepers will be subject to the deep southern Caribbean sun.

The Casa del Mar and ABC share facilities, and your room charge at ABC is accepted at the Casa del Mar restaurant.

We did not use the tennis courts, or the rental car concession or tour desk at Casa del Mar.

The location of this resort is its best feature, being within walking distance of many other resorts and restaurants, and a short ride to the high rise area and downtown Orangestad. The Alhambra shopping plaza, with several shops and restaurants, a small food market, a Subway and Baskin Robbins, across the street, is a great amenity for this resort.

In addition to dinner on site, we dined at Rembrandts, Wacky Wahoo and White Modern in Palm Beach, as well as Pizza Bob's located a few hundred yards from ABC, and the French Steakhouse at the adjacent Manchebo Resort. Dining in Aruba is expensive, compared to other Carribean islands we've visited.

ABC and to a lesser extent Casa del Mar, host an older crowd. ABC was the first time share in the Caribbean and wears its age fairly well. There do not appear to be many RCI exchanges here, and many owners we met have been coming for years and own multiple weeks.

We enjoyed Aruba (this was our second visit) and ABC enough that we bought a unit for future visits, but a one bedroom this time, right on the beach. So we will be back.

There is little nightlife at the resort, and given the small size of the units, ABC might not be right for families to share a unit, or for singles. But it was just right for this boomer couple.

We have been staying here for over 17 years and call it home!! Very comfortable and relaxing. Right on the beach, no shoes needed! Downside is the units could be freshened up with new linens. Always clean and service is great! The extra charges on the units are becoming outrageous an not worth it! So we are rethinking our favorite place, which is sad. Very quiet not much to do so if your looking for nightlife then stay at the high rises! Walking distance to some nice restaurants, carte blanch is awesome!!!

We're heading back to the ABC in a few weeks which prompted me to write this. We've been to Aruba several times over the years and have experienced that more laid back low-rise end of the island (ABC), the more glamorous and happening high rise end (Hyatt) and even a small "off the strip" windsurfing chalet. In my opinion you can't beat the value of the ABC and its neighbors. The beach is perfect and less crowded, there's plenty of access to water sports, beach bars are readily available and less expensive etc. etc. If you want to have a quick walk to the high end casinos and shopping, the low rise area (ABC) is not for you. However, you're more interested in just relaxing in the sun and enjoying the natural beauty of the island- then the ABC is a good bet. The rooms are a little dated, but they're fine. The Alhambra Casino is right next door if you're a "light" gambler like me. There's a nice pool for kids. Usually a good volleyball game down the beach every afternoon. It makes for a nice, relaxing vacation.
