We stayed here for a couple of nights and enjoyed our time here. The rooms were clean and the location was great, just a short walk to the beach. The free parking was also really useful. We didn't have a balcony on our room and were round the back of the hotel which was a shame as it meant our...

Easy access to all the Broadbeach shops and restaurants. Also easy access to Gold Coast tram. Neat, clean and tidy although decor was a little dated. Very comfortable bed and ample room for two. Kitchen supplied with all utensils needed.

Arguably the best location on the Gold Coast. Just to get this straight Aruba Beach Resort is not the type of place to stay if you are after somewhere fancy with frills. However if you are after comfortable, apartment style accom in the heart of Broadbeach then look no further. Aruba Beach Resort is located on Surf Parade and literally...

We were pleasantly surprised by these apartments. They are very well laid out and the living area is big! All facilities were available for cooking and everything was clean and well maintained, although a little dated.

We booked a 3 bedroom apartment, and it was huge. The kitchen had everything you could need, air conditioning throughout, foxtel and all conveniences. Everything was clean and tidy. The kids loved the pool. The managers were friendly and helpful, and the location was very convenient.

So impressed with this admittedly dated looking (on the outside) apartment ... big surprise to find it was immaculately clean and really well-equipped. Kinda retro inside, with comfy bed, big bathroom with washer and dryer and good air-conditioning and lovely little outside balcony with table/chairs. Reception staff were so friendly, helpful and obliging. Right near the shops and restaurants yet...
