Just returned home after a 8 night stay at the Aruba Surf Resort. We had a great time. Our one bedroom unit was all you could want. It had everything we needed to make it a comfortable stay. We enjoyed using the spa and pool after being out all day.
The only recommendation would be a screen door over the sliding doors.
We would definitely come back and stay again.

Thanks
Russell and Sandra

Dear Russell & Sandra, Thank you reviewing Aruba Surf Resort, so pleased that you had a great time during your recent break away. The apartment allow you to enjoy both eating out in the wonderful restaurants close by and also taking advantage of the full kitchen facilities by eating in. The spa is a great way of relaxing after full day out. The screens on the doors would be great, we will encourage the owners to consider this in the future. We look forward to welcoming you back to Aruba Surf on your next visit to Broadbeach. Kind Regards Denise & Stuart McNeil

We recently stayed in a one bedroom apartment at the Aruba Surf in Broadbeach and loved it. The room was very clean and had recently been refurbished, we were close to the pool and found the property's location fantastic.

It is within easy walking distance of Pacific Fair and the casino in one direction and Oasis shopping centre and many great restaurants in the other.

As there was a fully equipped kitchen at our disposal we had the option to cook in the unit (there's a Woolworths just down the road) or eat out at one of the many restaurants.

The owners are a lovely couple, very helpful and were happy to go out of their way to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. Would highly recommend...

Hi Kate Thank you so much for taking the time to review your recent stay at Aruba Surf Resort.
It was great that you enjoyed the new refurbished apartment, we are so pleased with the new decor which just adds to the experience of our resort. Our location is always worth mentioning as it is such a short stroll to the beach, entertainment and of course shops including Woolworths which you were able to take advantage of with the full kitchen. We enjoy making our guests stay a great experience, and look forward to welcoming you back to Aruba Surf on your next visit to Broadbeach. Kind Regards Denise & Stuart McNeil

We have just returned from 7 days at Aruba. We were accommodated in a one bedroom fully self contained apartment. We were on the 3rd floor and our balcony overlooked the garden which was nice as it was shady and out of the sun. Five minute walk to Oasis Shopping Centre, Woolworths and restaurants. Just a few minutes in the other direction to Pacific Fair. Free car parking (woohoo) and overall great value for money. Denise was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay - politely answering all of my questions! Would definitley stay here again.

Stayed here during October 2013 for a work/play weekend. Clean, central premises with a real Mediterranean feel to it.

Close to Carrara (where work commitments were) and easy walk into central Broadbeach in the next street for dining & just over the road for shopping at Pacific Fair, or walk 2 minutes to the beach!

Decor is quite dated, but comfy & functioning well, plus the walls seemed very soundproof which is always a relief!

Staff were friendly and accommodating from the time of booking to the end of our stay - happy to recommend to families and couples looking for central, budget friendly accom on the Gold Coast.

Tips: rooms on the top floor are quieter especially if you're there over a weekend & there's only stairs to get up there so don't pack too heavy.

Hi Gracie, Thank you for taking the time to review Aruba Surf Resort. Our location is great with just a short stroll to cafes shops restaurants and the great beach. It is an added bonus to mix the work with the pleasure which it seems you enjoyed.
Some of the rooms are the carribean style decor, however we are presently painting and refurbishing alot of the rooms, so ensure next time you ask for a reburbished room as they look great!! Aruba Surf Resort is a budget accomodation however it does not mean that the service and cleaniness of the property is budget we ensure all areas of our complex meet a high standard and it is always a pleasure to assist our guests in any way that we can. We do hope to welcome you back to Aruba Surf Resort on your next visit to Broadbeach Kind Regards Denise & Stuart McNeil
