As advertised, Brickell Bay is distinctly 3-star. Stay for the location and affordability, not the property itself. On the plus side, you’re walking distance to lots of great restaurants and bars, and the beach access is nice to have. Pool area is pretty good, and...More
During my stay at Brickell, I did not have any problems. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, and the beds were extremely comfortable. I felt safe - even at home during my stay. The beach was just a short walk across the street...More
Prior to my trip to Aruba, and after booking a room here, I read mixed reviews about the hotel. I am very pleased that I stuck with my original decision to make Brickell Bay my home while in Aruba! From the moment I arrived to...More
Nice place close to the beach fun stuff the staff were quick and helpful in every way. Great for the price comfortable beds, good drinks! The pool bar was fun good pizza
I have now eaten pizza in a pool
Stayed here just one night for business. It's not that bad but I think you get what you pay for. The lobby area is tiny so you might have to wait a bit if they get slammed. The room was ok, I wouldn't have a...More

First off, this resort is not a resort or even a spa, it is a hotel! The bar is open on different nights. It is really loud dance music and sometimes is very crowded and sometimes it is just the regulars. Sopranos is a good live music bar and a landmark, so that is a must see. There is a Senior Frogs right around the corner, as well as another club like bar across the street. All in all, this is a great area to hang out in. Also, there are casinos in all of the hotels around that area and as long as you are playing the penny slots you can drink for free so that's a good way to start the night off. The local hot spot is called Salt and Pepper. It is just a bar but has the history and a great staff. If you bring a salt or pepper shaker with you from wherever you are from they will display it with the rest of the tourists that have brought them. The frozen Mojitos are awesome! Lastly, there is a bar that is out on the end of a pier over near the RIU resort that has live music at night and it was really fun! Aruba is VERY expensive so try and eat dinners with the early bird specials. They offer them everywhere. They have happy hour for drinks as well from 5-7 I believe. Enjoy your trip!!!! Its gorgeous!!!!

If you are a guest at the Brickell hotel there are few lounges free but in the same area you can find Marcel Sports (Saundra is the owner) where you can rent umbrella and lounges and be comfortable. At Eagle beach you can also rent but as it is a public beach without hotels on the beach I´m not sure how is the serevice there.
