“Well stocked condo on Eagle Beach - Recommended!”
Reviewed 1 March 2013

We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath ground floor condo in the Oceania Resort in the Pearl Garden building for a week - 4 adults and one child. Overall, our experience with Oceania and Prestige was excellent.

Pros:
1) Beautiful condo, up to date appliances including washer/dryer. Modern, clean, bathrooms with plenty of hot water. Wi-fi was perfect the entire time. Plenty of room and enough seating for all four adults both inside and outside on the patio.
2) Comfortable beds with plenty of extra towels, blankets, and sheets. Also stocked with sand toys, a high chair, and a pack and play for the little ones.
3) Communication with Alan, Raquel, and Rachel was excellent via email and also on the day of arrival. I would not hesitate to book with them in the future due to this fact. Nice touch to leave a bottle of champagne in the fridge for us upon check in!
4) Eagle Beach was lovely - not very crowded at all and once I went to Palm Beach I enjoyed it even more due to the fact that Palm was overly crowded and full of the lower level tourists that I attempt to avoid. It was a bit rough for our 3 1/2 year old, but once you got past the wave breaks it was nice and smooth most days
5) When you are not at the beach, Oceania has three pools (and one child's pool) to choose from. We loved the zero entry pool in the older side that had sand and lines on the bottom to show when it got deeper.
6) Maintenance services were great - the day we arrived we had an unfortunate toilet block occur and help arrived within an hour.

Cons:
1) Our grill was actually an electric grill, and there were no outlets outside so we had to plug it in through the sliding glass door. Odd, but at least there was a workaround.
2) I know that the resort has no power over this, but while we were there the road in front of the condo was blocked off so we had to go on a dirt road between the abandoned water park and the condo to get in and out. Odd, but again it wasn't really a problem.
3) There was nothing to do at the resort after dark, and no restaurant on site, so be prepared to walk to some of the neighboring casinos/resorts to find entertainment or something to eat. This may not be a con for everyone, but I felt it was worth noting.

I would not hesitate to stay at this condo or this resort again if I was looking for a relaxed family vacation. Also want to say that if you do stay at this resort and have a car, do not miss Baby Beach if you have young kids - it was amazing!

Room Tip: Ground floor condos are a great way to feel like you can step outside and

Thank you for your overall excellent review. We just love these detailed pros and cons reviews it inspires us to see what were the details you most liked and the few things that were less likable but in this case little details. It is an excellent point about the grills outside outlet and we will certainly take this matter under consideration. Furthermore we are glad to hear that we did our best to provide you with a great service. We are also pleased that you took the time to visit the other side of the island; San Nicolas where Baby Beach is located; this is one of Aruba’s most famous beaches. Overall we are glad to read about another happy guest staying at Oceania Deluxe Beach front Resort. Hope you had a great time in Aruba!

We were a bit apprehensive to book a Studio. However, this is a perfect condo. It is very clean, has a great view and is larger than I would have expected - much more so than a room at one of the resorts. You will practically have the pool to yourself and the beach is the best - no comparison to the mass of humanity on Palm Beach. The bathroom is huge with a large dressing area. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that the wifi did not function at all the entire time we were there. You could only pick up the Business Center wifi if on the deck. It could not be picked at the pool. But, then again, you are on vacation!! Rachel and her mgmt. team are very responsive and helpful.

Thank you for your excellent review. We are glad to hear that the studio condo size was larger than expected, although you had problems connecting to the wifi. It is stated in our contract agreement that we are not responsible for the operation or maintenance of DSL or other high speed internet services, but shall assist the Guest in the event of any malfunction. We depend on Aruba’s one and only internet provider. However this issue has been fixed. Still we appreciate the good ratings you gave us for our service. Also we are proud to say Eagle Beach has been chosen as the ninth position Best Beaches of the world and furthermore we hope that you had a great stay at Aruba.

For our 25th wedding aniversary trip, we stayed in a studio unit (E-323) on the third floor. This was our first time to Aruba. The condo is located accross the street from Eagle beach near the "low rise" timeshare area. For us the location was perfect because it was private and very quiet but within walking distance to restaurants and activity located on the beach. The pools were large resort style and for the most part we were the only ones by the pool at any given time. Eagle beach may be the best beach in Aruba. The beach is across the road from the condo complex just a short walk. Would be better to be directly on the beach but this was not a big deal to us.
The unit was decent sized and very nicely furnished. The complex has great security. There was no washer and dryer in our unit. Prestige realty was very profesional to deal with, and took care of any issues right away. The unit had beach towels and beach chairs and also a cooler to take out. The view was terrific.
We were there for 8 nights and really loved our time in Aruba, already planning to go back next year. The constant breeze was a bit strong at times but keeps you from overheating on the beach. Glad we didn't do an all inclusive because there are many great restaurants to explore. Rent a car if you go.

Thank you for your review! By reading your review it sounds like you enjoyed your 25th wedding anniversary in Aruba. It is always great to hear about nice experiences from first time visitors and already planning about returning back to the one happy island next year. All our condominiums include washer and dryer facilities except for our studios, just so you know for your next booking. We are looking forward welcoming you back to Aruba in the near future.

Just returned from the wonderful island of Aruba where we stayed at the Oceania Resort in Eagle Beach. We had a third floor condo (BC352) and the views from there were breathtaking. We all felt we had the best sunset view on the island and all of them were just beautiful. Our condo was tastefully decorated and very clean with all the amenties you would need or want. We rented our condo through Prestige Realty - Aruba and I have nothing but praise for their excellent service to us. I must say that they are one of the most accommodating realtors I have ever dealt with. I would highly recommend Prestige Realty as well as Oceania Resort.

Located right across the road from a quiet portion of Eagle Beach this property is idealy located.
The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The unit ( E323) was very clean and very spacious....basically what you see on the site is what you get.The new grocery store is approx a 15 minute walk so having a vehicle is a bonus if you plan on eating in. Speaking of which....the kitchen was only equipment with the barest essentials. With the exception of the bottle of champagne left by the management, the fridge was totally empty.
Our experience with these type of properties has been where there are basic condiments and spices and you replentish as needed.

Beautiful said. Thank you for your nice review. Our rental agreement states the things we supply before guests book a condo from one of our properties. But there is a very nice Super food shopping center 15 min walk from the Oceania Deluxe Beach front Resort like you said. Sometimes we also provide the service to buy groceries for guest on petition depending on the situation and season and there are special rates for this. But we really hope you had a great time during your stay with us and on the island and that you brought back beautiful memories of Aruba.

Our 2/2 3rd floor condo was perfect or our family of 3. It overlooked the sea, was spacious and exactly as represented on vrbo. All the comforts of home. Judy, the property manager, met us at the condo and explained the unit, resort facilities, and nearby attractions. A quiet uncrowded beach is 50 meters from the resort property. A car is necessary if you want to go anywhere other than the beach, although I believe a public bus passes by the resort. We will definitely stay here again and recommend to friends and family.
