The grounds at Aruba Reef Apartments are lovely. it is a little haven tucked into the residential town of Savaneta -- about as far away from the bustle, crowds, and trendy elements of Aruba as you can get and still experience the beauty of the island -- when on the property. unfortunately our apartment was not very clean. notable grime...

Loved this place! Definitely in the non-tourist area!! But that is what I wanted. Do rent a car to see the rest of the island though. I was traveling alone and I did not have a problem with feeling unsafe at any time. I was in the Garden Studio, which is cozy and comfortable. Freddy, the owner was on site... More

So LOVED spending our honeymoon at the apartment!! Could not believe the beauty of this place. Mr. Freddy is so awesome!!! He makes you feel like family!! Can't wait to go back!! We enjoyed the peacefulness of the place and enjoyed Mr. Freddy's hints on what we need to see and eat around the island. The only problem we had... More

We could not have been happier with our decision to stay here! The Garden Studio was exactly as described with the beach only 20 feet away. The 4 unit 'complex' never felt crowded and the few other guest were polite and friendly. We loved being greeted by the 2 dogs, Bonza and Master who were always around but not needy... More

I love this place! It is nice and quiet and away from the touristy areas on the other end of the island. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. There are some great cheap local restaurants near by. It is directly next to "The Flying Fishbone" which is an expensive restaurant that I did not eat at while I was there.... More

What a beautiful and special place. We've never visited Aruba before and didn't know exactly where Savaneta was in relation to downtown or the "action". We were instantly grateful for our choice. We stayed in the efficiency, I think Garden View.... Regardless it made little difference that we didn't have an ocean view. We were just steps from the beautiful... More

Great little gem hidden away on a small stretch of beach in the Southern part of the Island. The owner had an import business from Bali and built his own little Balenise paradise in Aruba. We loved the experience and the fact that you haven your own private cabine ( well equiped en large enough) almost at the water is... More

This place is truly beautiful and a great value. If you are the kind of person who doesn't care about casinos, lots of people watching, or shopping, this is a wonderful setting. My partner and I stayed here a week, and for five days, we were really happy with the whole experience. On the fifth day, we took two of... More
