“Our home away from home”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

We have owned at this property for 4 years now. We visit every fall without fail. Having explored every facet of the island, the beach at this resort is the most spectacular on the entire island. The sunsets are intoxicating. The resort is located on a very quiet area of Eagle Beach. The resort is well maintained and just underwent a major renovation. We own 2 weeks and trade one of the weeks to another resort in the spring. No matter where we go in the world, we always look forward to coming to our home at Costa Linda.

This was our first visit since the renovations have been completed at the Costa LInda (time share) beach resort, our third stay in the past 3 years. The pool area, grounds and the rooms are kept immaculate! The Costa Linda staff are always pleasant and helpful. We were told that due to 2 winter storms, 13 of the beach chickee huts were lost (as evidenced by the loss of beach front sand), which added to the problem of guests hogging "their" huts when not in use, although we did see some of the security staff recording times of the "reserved" huts being left unoccupied. We were not happy with the Waters Edge restaurant (a concession of Papagayo) as the service was extremely slow, a lot of menu items not available, an unattentive staff, and drink prices on the high side ($8.40 US for a 10 plastic cup of a watered-down mixed drink). Room service was not available... they claim they were too busy. Don't let this restaurant deter you from staying at Costa Linda, as there are many new dining options closeby in the Alhambra mall, a 5 minute walk.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good, you have a choice of pool view or ocean view.

I've stayed at this property several times with family who have a time share. The property is very well maintained and lush, and the staff are warm and highly responsive. The apartments are modern and well equipped, and all have a view of the sea and/or pool. Best of all is the beach - large, with comfortable lounges and ample natural-leaf 'chickees' that provide shade. The location is also ideal for beach walkers, with about 1 mile to either side. The restaurant concession is adequate but not up to the same standard as the remainder - food is 'okay', menu uninteresting and service on the slow side. Beach service is also very intermittent with no way of notifying waitstaff if an order is desired. Over the 8 years I've been coming intermittently, the property seems to be in better shape each time. Overall, a totally relaxing stress-free visit I'd gladly repeat every winter. Not ultra-luxury but everything one could want for a completely restful and enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the ocean are quieter and brighter.

This is still the best place in Aruba. The staff is amazing!!!!! The up dating of all the rooms is fantastic, love the walk in shower in the master and the private bathroom entrance for the second bedroom. The Board and management have done an excellent job and as owners, we again feel confident in our vacation investment. Don't stay in a hotel, rent a week from an owner or call Costa Linda. We also have the most beautiful beach !

Room Tip: Most rooms are two bedroom two bath with full kitchen and patio. There are no bad rooms, as they al...

We have been owners at the Costa Linda for over 15 years and have enjoyed every minute of our stay there. We have the best beach on the island with white sand and crystal clear water. Occasionally we are enriched byt the amazing "birth of a turtle's nest" as the little creatures head to the sea. The resort has been fully refurbished even with a new Turtle's Nest restaurant which we have yet to see. We are due back in July and await our 4th of July celebration.

We finally returned to Costa Linda. They are almost finished construction as far as we can see -- as mentioned previously, hallway tilework is nearing completion. Not certain what the plans are for the Fragipani Cafe, whether it will be reopenned or changed.

This place continues to be incredible!! Thank you for showing that a resort can be outstanding year after year. This is first and foremost based on the Costa Linda's incredible staff -- everything flows from them. If you need more space, want to be beachfront, and want to take a break from the high-rise area, Costa Linda is your oasis.

I highly recommend looking at their rental posts from timeshare owners. This resort is worth the high-end price the resort charges directly; however, you can find a great rental from a weekly timeshare owner on their site, too. Enjoy!

One of the nicest resorts we ever stayed at. Right on the beach with a great beach bar and restaurant. Eagle Beach is beautiful and the water is crystal clear. We had a two bedroom unit with a full kitchen. Gas grills are on the grounds. The staff is very friendly and helpful. No need to rent a car with the buses and cabs. Five minute walk to the casino.

Room Tip: Every room has an ocean view.
