“Great location - good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

Having read the reviews for this hotel, we can confirm the contents of the same. Therefore, we will not repeat what has already been said. There are a few items though that are worth mentioning.

Though the size of the room is perfect, it should be noted that it hardly has any storage room. The closet is extremely small and if you come for a week or even longer, you will find it difficult to unpack your clothes. Even without spending much time in the room, you kind of want to settle and at least unpack your clothes instead of living from the suitcase.

Unlike some travellers' reviews, our shower was far from great. The door was broken and could not be fixed thereby creating regular albeit small floodings in the bathroom. The water pressure is also not too great.

Eagle beach, or better the parking lot at eagle beach, seems to be a popular spot for the locals especially in the evening/night hours. They like to test their cars' motors which we found rather disturbing. Also, they just like to hang out there and listen to loud music sometimes until 2am/3am.

The hotel has a small laundry, which we found very helpful. Equally, the fridge in the room is big enough to store the groceries there and allow you to go without breakfast or lunch at the hotel.

This hotel is in the middle of the island between the cruise ship shops and the high rises. the beach is directly across the street and has its own tiki huts and chairs which are necessary with the Aruba sun and wind! The staff here is so pleasant trying to please you for all your needs. Although the pool is small, who needs one with the beach across the street. The rooms are average size and comfortable with a mini fridge and desk and king beds with comfortable mattresses. The bathrooms are smaller, and could use updates, but clean! Overall it is not a hopping hotel with lots to do- yet they have small table and chairs on a tiny porch outside each room. It is a great place to just relax and get away - small but cozy!

Room Tip: there was no gym, just tennis court- but had a shower and bathrooms for when you are coming from bea...

This hotel was perfect for our needs - we don't spend much time in our room so don't need a lot of space/amenities. Accommodations are very clean and room is as pictured on the website. Room has nice sized fridge - great shower and our room had a nice view of the beach. Location is good with easy access to the bus and eagle beach right across the street. Beach chairs are free for hotel customers. We rented a car and explored the island during the day and took the bus out at night - $2.30 per person and runs till 11:30. Hotel is approximately 10 min from downtown and 5 min from high rise district. Super Foods grocery store is a few blocks away. The staff here are very polite and helpful. Several reviewers mention Christy - we will too. She offered lots of good information so make sure to spend some time with her. Would definitely return and highly recommend to travelers looking for a non-all inclusive option in a great location.

This hotel was great for me as a single traveller. Great staff, an ok continental breakfast and the location was very nice. Especially I loved having Eagle beach (free beach chairs for guests) like 50 meters away. Buses went outside the hotel to/from Oranjestad. The bed was comfortable, AC was good and rooms clean. Also, it seemed to be maintainance ongoing in order to keep the standard up. Would definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Really have no idea but I had a room on the first floor and liked it.

This is a very small hotel right in front of eagle beach.

They have beach chairs free of charge for guests and beach towels.

Our room on second floor had a comfortable king size bed, good choices of TV channels, small refrigerator. But I didn't see elevator, so be aware if you have big luggage or related problems.

Bus stop is right in front of hotel, making it easy to go to the resorts area or downtown. The fare is more or less 2.5 dollars.

The restaurant inside is really good, so we ended up eating here almost every meal.

Just got back from MVC. It is a no-frills hotel, but exceptionally clean and everyone there is very helpful and friendly. Christy runs the front desk is so helpful and pleasant. She takes very good care of everyone and makes sure you have a wonderful time. She is very personable and makes you feel so welcomed. The beautiful beach is across the street. As others have said, it is a quick walk and the hotel supplies beach towels and lounge chairs with a shade canopy for free. The beach was usually not crowded, but people from the cruise ship came on Sunday and then it was noticeably more crowded, which makes for great people watching. There is lots of beach to walk and the sand is great. The color of the water is so beautiful too. We had breakfast at Tulips each morning, great coffee. It is not your typical American breakfast, but rather meat, cheese, fresh fruit, breads, yogurt and hard boiled egg and cereal. Very good. There is a Super Foods grocery store about a 10 minute walk away with everything you need and even a good little restaurant there too. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful spot to stay, this is the place and the price is right!! We would definitely stay here again.
