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

This is the first time that I'm doubting if I should write a review or not; sometimes you just don't want to share something so good, just so you can enjoy it yourself a little bit more. It felt like pure egoism to keep this hidden gem to myself though... We found Aruba Reef Apartments through a friend of ours... More

We could never thank Freddie enough for his new found friendship and tremendous hospitality. After coming to Aruba year after year and loving it. Never thinking we could love it more. And then we came upon Aruba Reef Apartments. An amazing experience which we look forward to next year again. Moonlit dinners with Freddie and his guests. Under the stars... More

After living on Aruba for 6 years we really missed the island. So we looked for a nice and private place to stay near the beach. We found Freddy`s place on the beach!! I was looking very much forward to this holiday and it was more than we expected. The peacefull beach in a tropical setting and on every hidden... More

Pros: Aruba reef was an amazingly peaceful, scenic, comfortable place that allowed us to lay out all day on a private beach. My girlfriend and I came here at the end of June 2014 and stayed 3 nights. The quiet atmosphere was definitely needed after a hectic day of travel. Fred the owner was very nice and left us be... More

We got back from our 4 day stay at Aruba Reef almost 5 days ago, and we're still mourning the fact that we had to leave. Aruba Reef is total perfection -- from the gorgeous private beach, beautiful and spacious apartments, adorable dogs, to FRED (the coolest/nicest guy ever), breathtaking views, and amazing Bali-inspired decor, this place is a total...
