Great location. So that's the good points done. To rest is just too sad to describe. Old, tired, no attention to detail, okay in the most mediocre sense, probably Worth it if it cost 30 percent less. If sleep here again if it was the only place left available. That is all.

Hi Kerry....We always encourage our guest to book direct and speak to a person rather than an online situation. We are more than happy to explain our policies to you so you know exactly what the terms are. You are welcome to ring us direct and we will offer you the best price anyway and explain the room types and locations of the rooms. We may have missed your booking this time but would be happy to assist in the event you decide to try us again. Regards Brett Switzer....Manager

Hi can you catch buses from here to the theme parks Please
Yes they have a bus stop right outside Aruba Beach Resort for all buses that go to the theme parks and to Surfers Paradise. I am not sure but I think you have to book the theme park buses and they give you a pick-up time to be waiting at the stop.

"Hot Tip: Book somewhere else"
"Lower floors mean less stairs to carry suitcases."
"Make sure you get a room with a balcony"
"Check if stairs are a problem, or balcony wanted"
"Ask for beach facing as a new building is going to block out ALL sunlight."
