“Love my vacation here”
Reviewed 25 July 2012 via mobile

Always enjoy my stay at the Surf Club. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. Amenities and guest suites are well maintained. The beach is always pristine. Have been coming for may years and will continue vacationing here.

I have been there multiple times and enjoy it every time. While the island is small and you quickly hit all the sightseeing hotspots, the beaches are wonderful and the snorkeling is exceptional. No worries about crime. Friendly people everwhere. Fishing is great (but you don't get to keep the catch. Usually only one or two fish which they take to a restaurant to be prepared). I think it is the very best for just relaxing and enjoying beach and water related activities.

I love going to Aruba and must say the Surf Club is amazing. Although my wife and I do not yet have kids, we still have a great time.

The Surf is a little more family friendly than the Ocean Club (also amazing), but it's fantastic. Great location to everything, meaning you can walk easily all the way down towards the Westin, and back no problem.

Not far from all the great restaurants. The pool and lazy river are amazing to have access to, and no matter your age, the water slide is still fun too.

My family and I had been hearing about this property for years, and our children were dying to go. We finally purchased a week off of red week during President's week in February. Our unit was a 2 bedroom unit with a kitchen overlooking the pool and part of e ocean. The unit was clean, but a little dated and run down inside. It was definitely in need of a face lift and update. While we were there, they were painting outside of our door in the hallway at the heart of the afternoon. When I called down to ask why they were doing this during a peak high season week in the middle of the day, the manager had no response other than this was when it was scheduled for. There was a bad paint smell for the rest of our time there.
The restaurants in the hotel were dreadful, especially around the pool area. They were also overpriced. For good restaurants, one must leave the hotel for sure. There are a few big supermarkets on the road from e airport to the hotel. I highly recommend renting a car, and stopping at the market on e way to the hotel. breakfast and lunch in the room, and nice dinners out. One high point was the delicious $10 smoothies on the beach which were delicious and could serve as lunch are as well. The children loved them and they were full of fresh fruit.
The pool scene is really something. My husband had to wake up at 7am to get us good chairs or we would be sitting next to the air conditioning motors in a gross area. The pool was loud and noisy, with lots of kids and cheesy people drinking beer out of their coolers all day. It was not restful at all, and lots of unpleasant smoking too. This is not a property I wld ever return to, although the kids liked the water slides and had some fun there.

Room Tip: High floor facing the water directly, not the pool.

A great property! We stayed a week in one of the ocean side lock off units. It was pretty small but nice, clean, and had basic ammenities such as a mini frigge and coffee pot. Leonardo cleaned on our floor and was awesome with my daughter, giving her tubes that were left behind, candy, etc. We loved the lazy river and feeding the iguanas daily. The only annoying things were the fact that you have to tag your chairs by 6am and forget the beach chairs with a hut! Overall a very nice week!

Room Tip: If you want ocean side be sure to ask for a higher floor!
