We've been to Aruba many times, and always have a great time. The second KuKu Koonuku bus was as much fun, if not more, than the first. We rode a tube couch on Palm B each, something we've never done before.
The Glitz Casino was one of my favorites and all the machines that we like. Overall it was a great trip. Didn't want to leave.
We just got back from a 5 night stay at Amsterdam Manor. We have been to Aruba a few times and have stayed at Bucuti Beach, also on Eagle Beach. Amsterdam is a bit further down closer to the high rise and Palm Beach area but it is truly a hidden gem among the low rises. We loved the quiet atmosphere, the easy and quick walk across the street to the beach and the informative and friendly staff. We never had a problem getting lounge chairs on the beach and everything you need for the day is right there. The bar, restaurant, rest rooms, towels and floats are right on the beach. The rooms were spacious and the only reason I did not give 5 stars across the board was because of little things like the flat feather pillows and the lack of shelf space in the shower and bathroom area. Other than that we loved it! We will definitely return to Amsterdam. Thank you for a wonderful visit!
Spent one day waiting for air transportation. Front desk staff made an effort to arrange to have our room ready early. Amenities were top drawer and the room was great. The Windows restaurant was a wonderful experience and the wait staff very personable and accommodating. Would consider scheduling a week's visit in the future.
It was my first time in aruba and definately i have to go back. I pick this hotel without knowing anything but the reviews but i can say it met my family expectation. The staff was really nice but I have to say that Ursula was extremly good with both my wife and my kid, she arrange all tours for us always trying to get us the best rate and giving us advise on how we can get the best of our experience in Aruba. THANKS URSULA and thanks Blue Residence.
I enjoyed my stay at MVC Eagle hotel. It's a small and intimate hotel if that's what you're into. The staff especially "Kevin" were very nice and helpful.
There were two issues that I had which were the pool was tiny and not so clean. I have a 9yr old who loves the pool so we had to walk 10 minutes down the road to Amsterdam Manor (same owner) and use their beautiful pool.
The other issue was at night when the locals would hang out across the street at the beach and have their loud music coming from their car. I could hear the pounding all the way in my room. I was not happy about that at all.
Would I come again? Absolutely not but only because I like my hotel stay a certain way!!! My reasoning takes nothing away from how at home I was treated at MVC.
This small resort is located on a wide stretch of white sand beach. The staff's favorite expression, no matter what our request, was "Yes, of course". The food was excellent in each of the restaurants. The service was very good as well. Friendly and accommodating. There is a spa with full services offered, a work out facility, pool, yoga and Pilate classes outside. We would stay here again and much preferred it to the crowded and overly commercial area with the high rise hotels/name brand chains. Taxi fare to/from airport was only $22 each way and only $9 each way from the high rise resort area with all the shopping.
My boyfriend and I stayed here recently, and it was a great experience. We were looking for something quiet with cooking facilities, and within walking distance of the beach. Bubali Bliss fit the bill. If you're looking for something near the nightlife, this is not the spot for you. But we loved it. Spacious (having a separate living area was fantastic), full kitchen, close enough to the beach, there is a supermarket right across the street, small patio right outside your door, and there is a small pool which was fun to dip in. Would definitely return.
Eagle Beach is defined by its powdery white sand and shaded picnic areas. A smaller concentration of hotels and resorts make Eagle Beach a more relaxed option than its northern neighbor, Palm Beach. Calm Caribbean waters facilitate pristine visibility for snorkelers and scuba divers opportunities. Some water sports are available here as well.
