    Excellent hotel for couples. This is our 3rd time here and 2nd Christmas . It’s perfect adults only and quiet it’s less than 1/2 of the cost of the surrounding hotels and so worth it. This is the perfect place for us. We spend our days in the reserved area of the beach, doing excursions, or exploring the island and come back to relax at the quiet pool and pool bar where there is always a chair. The beach is only 1 block away and they’ll drive you in the cart. (Just a FYI for comparison the physical distance from the hotel to the beach is the same as the Marriott surf lodge which is 600-800 a night no one is going to drive you down and you’ll never get a chair right by the ocean or away from the screaming kids. I’d choose the Brickell bay over that place any day.) The Surrounding restaurants in one -two blocks radius all around are some of the best in Aruba. This week breakfast is complimentary at the hotel I don’t know if this is something they will keep up, but Its a great continental style breakfast and they have an upgraded coffee machine which I loveeee. I have a bad addiction to caffeine and I no longer have to go to Starbucks for my strong coffee. Even some of the expensive resorts only have Nescafé. I’ve read some of the negative reviews on here and I highly disagree. The rooms are fine bed and pillows comfortable, in my 3 times here I have never seen a bug in my room or elsewhere and I pack my own extension cord for more outlets. I guess if you are the type of person who just wants to stay at a resort all day and be waited on this wouldn’t be a good fit, but then why would you come to Aruba the safest island in the Caribbean ?

    My favorite place in all of ARUBA

    Best value Best location Super nice staff I almost don’t want to give a review because I wish it to remain secret This is my 3rd year in a row and I plan on making it an annual thing. I rarely revisit places / countries but this is just super easy - come to Aruba and stay at Brickell Bay

    Good timing

    Jeanrick, the manager was especially helpful and pleasant. His personal emails confirming all arrangements including airport transfer were so timely. I was going to Aruba just to be Covid tested before moving on to my destination - I could not arrange that anywhere else including my home country. It was a stressful day. Jeanrick was great and for just a one night stay,

    I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was very friendly and professional and pandemic protocols were implemented. I submitted 3 issues/complaints and 2 were resolved immediately. The 3rd took more time because it was more complicated. Great to see Brickell renovating their exterior. The hotel is near great restaurants and of course at Palm Beach.

    This was a fantastic and very affordable hotel for our first Aruban experience!! ??PROS: The room was very clean and super comfortable. The staff was superb, courteous, beyond lovely. The location is 5 stars. It’s a quick walk to the beach and close to all the restaurants and the main strip. King size bed was very comfortable No screaming kids. Very quiet and peaceful. A/C and ceiling fan were on point and kept our room nice and chill When you go to the beach (about a 5 minute walk from the hotel), there are padded beach chairs set aside just for guests of the hotel ======================== ??CONS: Pool closes at 7pm Unfortunately, there isn’t a pool jacuzzi Rooms are a little on the basic side. Don’t get me wrong they are very nice and very clean but a little on the basic size. Unfortunately the gym isn’t that great. They do have a elliptical and a cycling bike and 4 sets of dumbbells (2) 10lbs (2) 15lbs (2) 20lbs (2) 25lbs So it’s hard (but not impossible) to keep your training regiment going while yoir on vacation. ======================== Overall, a great experience!! Can’t wait to come back again!!
