“A week's stay 8/18-8/25”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

Family of 4 stayed at presidential unit #1504, a 2 bedroom with excellent pool and ocean views. We were not sure about the views, as this was a timeshare we were picking up from someone else, but the view turned out to be one of the highlights; we could watch the sunset from our large balcony or go down to the beach.

There were only a couple of things I did not like; no wi-fi unless you pay for it, though at Matthew's restaurant on the premises, you do get wi-fi. We asked to have our boarding passes printed the night before departure and they wanted to charge us for internet access plus 50 cents/page to print the passes. We passed and it ended up not mattering anyway; at the airport we had the passes printed there as part of check in. That's about it, all minor points but it would be nice if the CDM joined the 21st century and gave free wi-fi. Also the beach here is not as calm as Palm or Eagle beaches and there were a couple of days where the breeze kicked up the sand, but the beach is very nice and wide and relatively people free compared to Palm beach.

The staff was very friendly, most are long timers and they get to know the repeat timeshare folks. The huts and beach chairs at the beach are first come first serve; I'd usually walk down around 7am and grab one, but even when we got there one day around 11:30am, there were still options in the back near the sister adjoining site Aruba Surf Club, so no issue there. Housekeeping was top notch!

The resort has been around a bit, but we thought the rooms were very clean and well kept. No flat screen TVs yet, but that was minor, we watched little TV with so much to do.

So if you want calm, few people on the beach and lots of beach and sand to look at, for a reasonable price, and have kids you rent one of the Presidential 2BR units. Just make sure you are ok with a bit of wave action. We had a great time and would love to come back.

Room Tip: We loved the rooms over the pool on the top floor (5th). Great views including sunset.

I had a wonderful first visit to Aruba. I have already made plans to return next year. I found the staff friendly and helpful. I was visiting with a friend who seemed to have a personal relationship with most of the staff. The pools were beautiful and well-maintained. The bar had happy hour three times per day. There were always activities during the day. The beach was gorgeous. I had no complaints during my stay at all. I plan to return as soon as possible!

we loved our stay. oour room was as advertised. daily maid service was exceptional!! we did use the laundry room. two bucks a load for washer and dryer. (our timeshare has free laundry in each room). like the other reviews state karoke night is very loud. our room was 1222 second floor two bedroom overlooking beach and pool/bar.
We used Matthews twice breakfast specials include $3 omelet and 7.95 complete meal deals.
We went for dinner it was exceptional. Beware flys fly at the beach at sunset so you might want to eat earlier or later. entire staff was friendly and would go out of their way for you.
the beach was lovely...owners told us that there is new sand there because it all washed away before. waves were very big...not a gentle beach. we alked to the divi and up to costa linda where it was a bit calmer.
we would stay there again!

Room Tip: i would have preferred to be a little further away from the bar on karoke night it was very loud...

Our famiy of 5 stayed at Casa Del Mar in one of their presidential suites the week of July 14-21, 2012. I have to say when we first arrived I wasn't impressed. The hotel is definitely a little dated.. After a couple of days I really enjoyed being here. The hotel was very open, with a great breeze everytime you stepped off the elevator. The staff was friendly and housekeeping did a great job keeping the room spotless. The pool and beach were very close so when you were tired of the noise at the pool, you could take just a few steps and find yourself on the beautiful, white sandy beach. Yes, the beach was spectacular here, the kids really enjoyed the waves. We had other family staying at the Marriott Surf Club in the high rise section and we found it to be very crowded and too chaotic. Also, Matthews restaurant at Case Del Mar was awesome! The food was excellent and the 3 happy hours weren't bad either. I highly recommend the BLAT sandwich, excellent!! Overall, I would recommend this hotel to others and would definitely stay at Case Del Mar again.

Resort, beach, and people all exceeded our expectations! I don't understand the negative reviews (unless they came pre-renovation).

If you've never left the USA that might also explain negative reviews.

We find this resort to be great for a family. I LOVE that we aren't in the crowds of the high rise hotels. The beach is very quiet as is the pool area. Never had trouble finding a palapa at either. Traveled with our 3 kids of 7, 11, & 13. This isn't a luxury 5 star property, but nor is it "tired and run down." It is very clean, nice, well kept, and clearly recently remodeled.

Room AC is very cool. We made no special requests but were placed in a 1st floor beachfront room (rooms 1122-1125). Literally out our back door a few steps is the sand. Beach is huge! No issue with rocks, etc. We visited late July, early Aug.

Restaurant food is fine. Pizza Bob's nearby is excellent. We like that from this location we can get anyplace we need for a $10 or less cab ride.

Plenty of great excursions to do with an activities desk in the lobby. We took the Octopus Trimaran Sail and Snorkel which I'd recommend. Also did an all day open air Beach and Cave tour. This was also a hit. Open air bus was fine.

Weather here is evidently always warm with a breeze and hardly any rain. Once you leave the beach the island quickly appears desert.

A very pleasant bonus was that right from our beach there is good snorkeling. Just outside the buoys are submerged pilings covered in coral that attract great fish! Bring your mask and snorkel! We saw flounder, live conch, lobster, French angelfish, and lots of other tropicals.

No reason I can find not to highly recommend Casa del Mar!
