“Great place, fine value!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

This was a great experience! We wanted to go somewhere relaxing, but we did not want to stay at the resort all day; we wanted to see the island. For this kind of plan, this is an excellent resort. The breakfasts are simple but very good (excellent bread, cheese, fresh fruit, Dutch coffee, and German yogurt), and we had some delicious grouper at the Tulip on as well. The staff are pleasant and willing to make your time a great one. Kristy makes sure that you have towels for the beach and that you have good travel advice, and Theo at the Tulip is great to talk to.

The room is a good size with a King bed, and the room has everything you need. The location of the hotel is it's best feature. It's right across from Eagle Beach, one of Aruba's best beaches. If you want a busy place, you can bus over to the Palm Beach area for entertainment and water sports (not a long trip), but it's nice to have some quiet too, and Eagle Beach is not crowded. It's also a much wider stretch of beach than you'll get up near the resorts, and you can watch pelicans diving for fish.

It's worth going over to the grocery store (5-10 minute walk) to stock your fridge. The pool is really small, and it's a very basic hotel, but we didn't mind. Really, if you're not a fussy person, and you are going to enjoy the island rather than hang out at the resort pool all day, I highly recommend this hotel. It's clean and has great people, and great food.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the ocean, as it's a nice view.

We stayed at the MVC the first 2 weeks in June having chosen it after reading all the good reports on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed for the following reasons:
Excellent wifi (no connectivity problems whatsoever for 2 weeks)
Excellent air conditioning
Clean
Very friendly and helpful staff
Balcony overlooking sea
Great location across road from beach
Sun loungers and beach towels supplied free of charge
The Continental breakfast ok and Tulip restaurant good and reasonably priced
Check out was early (10am) but a hospitality room was available for shower before leaving for the airport, and luggage was stored safely at reception
Bus stop right outside door – the hotel is situated midway between Palm and Oranjestad.
We arrived ‘after hours’ when reception was closed, but an envelope was left with the restaurant staff with instructions and key.
Only slight downside was our safe was very unpredictable – it sometimes took over 40 attempts at the PIN to get it open (we did report this fault, and maintenance quickly came to fix it – but to no avail!) – but this certainly did not mar our impressions of this great little hotel.

Small 2 star hotel on Aruba, in the middle of Eagle Beach - on long, beautiful carribian white beach. 2 and 4 bed rooms with fridge, privat aircondi, phone, wifi, TV-set.Very small swimming pool, tennis court, big car park. Daily cleaning, Nice, helpful and friendly staff. Small Tulip restaurant serves breakfast and dinner. Nice carribian and international cousine, mainly sea food. In the area some other restaurants and small hotels. About 1500 meters from the hotel is the main Hotel Area with big chain hotels and noisy restaurants - and the main center of touristic life. You can use a public bus named Arubus.
With the same bus You can travel to collourful Oranjenstaad center with some old houses, bars and restaurants, I will return here with a great pleasure.

Room Tip: better wiev for the nice seaside from the first floor level

Yes it is a small hotel with only 2 floors. The rooms are a good size with modern quiet air conditioning. If you arrive on a late flight, reception will be closed but a security man will be there to give you a key and info pack and you can check-in formally in the morning. Turning up late at night was a bit strange, but it works. The restaurant serves simple breakfast and a nice menu for dinner
It is on the regular bus stop wtih busses going up to the high rises and back to Oranjestat for about US$2.70. The bus drivers are nice and accept USD or Aurban and give change and will tell you when you have arrived at your stop.
The beach across the street is amazing.
Lovely staff, great little hotel. Only issue was locals playing super loud music from the car park from 1-3am. It will be interesting to see if other people have noticed this as it might be a local hangout for very loud, very late reggae.

This small complex is in a nice location, across the road from Eagle Beach. The breakfast is good but nothing special. You can take the bus to Oranjestad or Palm Beach from across the street.
The room is very nice, with a small fridge, airco and a TV. The bed was huge although the mattress was a bit hard.
We stayed in room #104 on the second floor and it had a nice ocean view. You had to take a few steps to go to the second floor.
I would stay here again on my next visit.

We stayed at MVC from 04/06-04/12. This hotel is darling. It is super clean and was the perfect room across from beautiful Eagle Beach. The staff was above and beyond friendly. Christy is absolutely stellar. What a lovely woman. Theo is such a sweet man. He welcomed us and wished us a good day every morning. The cleaning staff was top notch. They all work so very hard and you can tell they take such pride in was their work. I would stay here again next year
Sharit always had our chairs under our palapa.

My negatives, and this is by no means the fault of MVC so I must say this is out of their control. The beach across the street is beyond beautiful. I was upset when we arrived on a Saturday and the locals were all blaring their music in some sort of battle. So loud it kept setting off car alarms. Not a relaxing day as you can imagine. This was My other issue was that it is a cruise stop. This means that a bus will pull up a few times a day with about 25-35 people that kind of take over your quiet time. Then they leave their trash before they go back on their bus. We were always picking up trash. I'm telling you this so you aren't surprised. It is just a stunning beach.

Bottom line we would absolutely stay at MVC again but will rent a car and go find that quiet beach when the buses come.

I do recommend MVC. We will return!ecky

When my husband and I stepped from the taxi onto the MVC Eagle Beach property, we were met with waving arms and shouts of hello. This warm welcome shocked us; we've stayed in Aruba seven other times (our first stay at MVC) and those related hotels do not compare at all to MVC's award-winning hospitality. Christy, the spitfire who runs MVC's day-to-day operations, is the key to its success. Before we arrived, I emailed her to request a first floor room because of my difficulty climbing stairs and also to tell her it was my husband's 60th birthday. She gave us an upgrade (more space) and on my husband's birthday she, along with other staff, presented him with a bottle of champagne on the beach. Hats off to the staff at Tulip, MVC's wonderful restaurant, and the beautiful, hardworking women who cleaned up after us each day. The rooms are very clean, the food is super delicious and the property is very quaint and quiet. Reasonable rates, too. (The pool is terribly small; for adults, it's a wading pool.) We had the best vacation at MVC and can't wait to return, IF there's availability after all the positive reviews!

Room Tip: MVC is a motel and the rooms (19 or 20) are entered from outside. There are two levels and they are...
