Best value for money self-contained apartment”

Very LOW price for exceptional facilities. 10 minute walk to Jupite's Casino and 20 to Dracula's Cabaret. The apartment had everything including private balcony.

It was one of the best, most affordable stays I have ever had on the Gold Coast. An inexpensive, fully featured apartment which is located very close to Jupiter's Casino, Dracula's cabaret, Pacific Fair shopping center. 30 or more restaurants within 5 minutes radius. Tram 2 minutes walk away, bus at the front entrance. Staff are VERY friendly and accessible. I fully recommend Aruba Beach Resort (although I hope you do not go because I want a room to be available when I go there next - but I have to be fair...)

Very convenient location”

We had a party of 3 couples and booked 3 one bedroom units. We were put on the same level in the same block, next to each other and only one set of stairs. Thank you to the management. Staff friendly and polite. The location of these apartments are ideal for walking to main centre of Broadbeach and surrounds. The gardens are kept very tidy. The units themselves are spacious and very practical. A kitchenette, Washing machine and dryer if needed. They were clean, except the carpet could of done with a shampoo to freshen up. Unfortunately the weather was inclement and we did not get to use any of the outdoor facilities, but the pool area looked great. Undercover parking was very handy. We will book again next visit. Thank you Aruba Beach Resort.

Almost a pleasant surprise”

Having never stayed in Broadbeach I was hoping I'd made the right decision for my family. Firstly the apartments are exactly as advertised. The two bedroom apartments were large enough with bedrooms at opposite ends. Kitchen and lounge facilities were good. There's a small bathroom with laundry facilities and separate toilet. The pool area looked lovely but due to time restrictions I didn't get to try the pool and spa. It's close to everything and the food options in Broadbeach are amazing. The only negative is that the bathrooms smelt of toilet at times. We reported this and I'm hoping they address that one issue. My family of 6 adults and 3 children would definitely stay again and I'm currently planning our next stay. Both the Aruba and Broadbeach itself are well worth a visit.

Comfortable Accommodation”

I was in town for a conference at the Gold Coast Convention Centre, and you can't fault the proximity! It's right across the road! The restaurants and parks around are fantastic, and the beach is a stones throw away. It's one of the best located hotels in Broadbeach! The unit itself is rather dated, however it is very large and there's no shortage of space. The bed was comfortable, and the overall presentation of the apartment was clean. It would have been nice to have a TV in the bedroom. There was one in the lounge room, though. For a short stay, it works a treat! Will stay there again.

Great value for big and nice holiday apartment ”

The one room apartment is bigger than I thought. It is nice and comfortable with its own spa and large balcony ! Everything you need is basically provided and even with washing machine !

It is the best value apartment I ever get ! And it is in Gold Coast! Such a tourist place and have your own one room apartment with this money ! It is very convenient as the bus stop can go to every theme park is just right in front of the hotel. Besides, 3 min to g link and 5 min to beach ! One thing that is not very good is that the smoke alarm is too sensitive, make sure when you cook open the door to the balcony. People in the reception are very nice. I think I will go there again!

I needed a place close to the Gold Coast Convention centre that wasn't too expensive for the duration of a conference and Aruba Beach Resort fitted the bill. It is just a bit weird that they only supply one roll of toilet paper no matter how long you stay.

We have stayed with Aruba on several occasions, mainly for the Broadbeach Country Music. It is a great location, close to all the action and with the Glink trams even better. Our friends were staying near Surfers , however it was no problem to meet with them for a night out. We were received with a smile and left with one.

Nice place but extremely basic”

This hotel is in a really good location and I booked to see how it compares to the hotels on Gold Coast with higher price tags. We arrived at 7pm. After hours check in was a very positive experience, can not fault hotel there. Our room however was on top floor with no lighting up stairs to guide you 3 flights of stairs. Older hotel, rooms very small. Coffee and tea services could be better, and definitely more sachets if milk. Overall an ok place to stay

One block from beach, major shopping centres 5 or 10 mins walk away minutes local bus stop at the front gate that will take you to all major attractions on the Gold Coast.

location, food, friendly owners

Its something like a boutique hotel managed mainly by 2 friendly, old couple. The hotel room... heck, its not even a room, its like a little penthouse! There's the kitchen which is small but surprisingly well-stocked with all the necessary utensils, and the living room is rather big and comfy! It can easily hold 4 - 5 people if you don't mind sleeping on the sofa in the living room. Shopping centres, casinos and bistros are just stone throws away. Don't know what to do in Gold Coast? Just approach the owners and they will be more than willing to help!
