It really is a fantastic location with shops and restaurants across the road and public transport at your door. I have stayed in a...

Spacious comfortable apartment with good amenities. Nice balcony. A second key would have been useful however. The apartment had Foxtel TV if you like sports .We watched some US Open tennis which was excellent. The WiFi ran out quickly as my phone is a data hog and I was unable to renew it as it is managed by a telco...

Reviewed 11 June 2015

Although Aruba is a little dated it is managed by a great couple who are very helpful. The pool gets the morning sun in June and is warm and the spa is great for the evening. The bus stop immediately outside and the tram stop one block away. On the edge of Broad Beach so everything accessible. Loved it.

Hello Sharyn and thank you for your kind words about us and the resort in general. We would love to have you here again all the way from Wanaka and we know many of your fellow New Zealanders also typically enjoy their winter breaks here.

Couldn't fault this place in anyway, the gardens and rooms well looked after & the nice swim in the warm water pool, the spa was the hottest most powerful I've been in. 4 minute walk to the beach and 2 minutes to the fabulous shops & restaurants, some good places for quality beers also helped towards the experience !!
