We stayed at the Aruba Beach resort for 7 nights and found it dingy and dated, a lot of noise from surrounding apartments. Not the most approachable person on reception either. It was V8 races that weekend so may be she was a bit stressed.

Dear Judy.....We are surprised by your review and wished you would have come to reception to voice your opinions. We certainly would of acted had you made a complaint but you decided not to do so. It is difficult to address issues if we don't know about them until we read them later on Trip Advisor. More

Great value for money. Right in the heart of Broadbeach, it's walking distance to the beach and all of the shops and cafes, quite close to Pacific Fair. Yet despite this, it's very quiet.

Stayed here in late August for 2 nights for a friends wedding. 3 other couples stayed here, we were all in different stair wells which made getting to each others rooms difficult. Location was good, the accommodation fine for the price, but nothing really remarkable.
