Read through some of the reviews by previous Aruba Beach Resort guests.

Great location, within walking distance to beach, cafes, restaurants, tram etc, secure undercover parking, pool, spa, well maintained property. Clean, comfortable with very friendly, helpful manager. Highly recommend & will definitely return.

The reception lady was very nice. We got the 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms, living & dinning room, kitchen and balcony... It was great size for us. It was very clean which is very important to us, also fantastic location. We had a hire car and the car park was very secure. We would love to stay here again.
Central, close to everything, underground parking, updated to a unit it was spacious and had the lot, laundry, kitchenette spacious balcony…. What’s not to like??
Great location Close to restaurants, the beach, the train station and shopping. Well structured with washer and dryer. Good sized and organized bathrooms and bedrooms.

Awesome Location! We stayed in the one bedroom unit. It covers the basics & with shops nearby you can easily access everything you need. Unit had a washing machine & dryer so you can pack light if staying for a while. The kitchenette has a fridge, microwave, toaster, stove, oven, crockery, cutlery, utensils, pots/pans and all the basics if you want to make your own meals. A block back from the beach, walking distance to supermarkets, restaurants, coffee shops, the convention centre & the light rail system. A swimming pool, spa & bbq facilities make for a perfect day/night in. Cost $775 for 3 adults x 5 nights during Sep. We’ve rated it 4 stars but as far as budget accommodation goes we’d give it 5 stars.

Just spent the weekend at Aruba with my family & friends! We all had such a great time and absolutely loved the location of the resort. It's close to the beautiful beaches, shops & soo many restaurants - too many to choose from! All of our apartments were on the same floor and had such lovely views, they are clean & tidy and had everything we needed for a weekend getaway! The managers were really great and helped us with local info and extra towels for the kids! Oh and the kids loved the pool, sooo pretty in the evenings for a dip. Thanks Aruba - we loved our holiday 🙂

"Perfect holiday accomodation" Stayed for 3 nights, wish it was longer. Great affordable accommodation , very clean , air conditioned,good size apartments and walking distance to great restaurants, the beach and the GC convention centre. But the winner was Serena, the on site manager. She was cheerful, helpful and very accomodating with our requests. Second time we have stayed here and will definitely be back.

Right by the Beach! This hotel has free car parking, excellent location - near the beautiful beach, the bars shops and close to a Woolworths. We had an apartment which was perfect for also our needs. Really clean, cozy and had all the amenities you would need. I would highly recommend it here!

Fantastic location. Right in the hub of many different eateries and as we were there for a birthday party the venue was only a short walk away. The staff were very helpful and even though it was only one street off the Gold Coast Highway, it was very quiet. The unit was clean and very comfortable. We would certainly stay there again

Brilliant location We stayed for a leisurely 3 night break and enjoyed our whole stay at the Aruba Beach. Friendly staff, clean & comfortable rooms, secure car park, and within close walking distance to everything. This was our third or fourth stay at the Aruba Beach and it most certainly won't be our last stay.

Good location for Convention Centre Perfect for my needs. Simple, clean, short walk to the Expo, staff very accommodating with extending parking and flexible checkout arrangements due to my odd hours (exhibitor). Really took the stress out of being in town on business. Location was also excellent for restaurants, beach, cafe and tram, all an easy stroll. Thank you!

We stayed here for a week in November 2016. The hotel is just a few hundred meters from the beach and shops and restaurants are just across the road. We arrived at night and the front desk was closed so you had to get you're key out of a box at the hotel entrance. The room had everything that you would need and was spacious and clean. The pool was very quiet through the week which suited us as you could get a sunbed easily. At weekend the hotel had more guests but we still managed to get a sunbed easily. Would recommend this hotel for a short stay as it was clean and had everything you could need.

Attended a conference at the Gold Coast Convention Centre during Sep and the location was just spot on. Able to walk to the conference everyday, pop back when needed too and happy with the facilities. Great pool for a dip to start the day and to take the edge off a long day. Just had a small room, but it had all that was needed. Clean tidy and everything worked as it should. The undercover parking was free and secure. Access to the Broadbeach restaurants and other shops was just a step out the door.

I shared a room with a friend for 5 days which worked out to be 50pp/pn. The studio room was complete with linen, basic cutlery and tea making facilities, a microwave and a fridge. There is wifi and Foxtel which is more of a necessity than people realise. The upper rooms have to be accessed via stairs as there isn't a lift. Ample underground parking. Friendly service staff who offered to mind my baggage between check out and airport transfer. The rooms do not get serviced so you do have to go to the mall and get your own toilet paper and other necessities. Overall a great apartment stay that's super close to the convention centre. Would come again the next trip!

So.... This hotel has mixed reviews and I can only comment on my stay. The apartment from the outside is neat and tidy with a pool etc and well looked after gradens. The apartment we had, had everything I would expect including cutlery, appliances, etc.... The decor was dated but was tidy and clean. A small amount of supplies are there, couple of loo rolls, washing stuff, tea, coffee and milk.... But as its self catering its your job to resupply as needed. That's not hard though as the best thing about this place is location! Fanstastic..... Close to everything from pubs, restaurants, cafes, and shops.... The tram and bus stops are very close too! I would be back again!

Came up for a weekend of AFL, and checking out the restaurants & beaches of Broadbeach. Aruba Beach Resort is the ideal location to stay, just a few minutes walk from everything you want. The 1 bedroom apartment was just perfect for our stay. Very friendly management & I will definitely stay here again.
My wife and I were very pleased we selected Aruba Beach. It more than met our expectations and we can see why it gets such good reviews. Our unit was very nice and spotless. The managers go the extra distance to make sure all our needs are taken care of and they are very friendly. We loved the heated pool. Dining out was great as we just had to walk across the road and we could use resort vouchers and get a free meal if we paid for one. This resort is well cared for and we would strongly recommend it.
