This place is so relaxing! I felt like I was home. The owners welcomed us with beers, best ways to introduce ourselves! this not for fancy people just to warn you! This more like for hippies style people! ....loved the fact they have cats roaming around, super friendly pets... We fell in love with Maria (one of the cats) ..... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the coral reef beach. Julie,Hans and Jet were all amazing and very accommodating. They offered everything from snorkeling gear, Sun screen, to even a charger for our gopro camera. With Zeerovers only a few doors down we were able to purchase fresh Snapper, Wahoo, Swordfish and Prawns daily to take back to the grill.... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Coral Reef Beach. The owners are so accommodating and love to sit and chat about anything and everything. Our studio apartment was great with plenty of room for 2. Eating while looking over the ocean was so nice, and steps to the beach is a great plus over the high rise hotels where you... More

In this place you live together with your hosts. They are very nice and talk-active people. However, if you want to be alone, there are possibilities to relax by the sea, read and have a "Chill" (beer). The quality of rooms varies, I definitely advise to pay more and have a sea-view room or apartment. Bus stop is over 1... More

My husband and I stayed here on our first visit to Aruba. We totally enjoyed it and plan to return again. Julie, Jett and Hans welcomed us and made us feel like family - the kind you really like to be with. They were very helpful and more than accommodating. I'll agree that if you want a 5 star Hilton...

Other reviews indicate that many guests love this property so we went with high hopes. We knew upfront that this was no mega resort with luxurious amenities and were OK with that. The concept of a small "resort" with personal interaction and a laid back style appealed to our sense of adventure. Unfortunately for us, it was a huge disappointment.... More

This no frills resort located in the southern part if Saveneta far exceeded our expectation. We were on a holiday with 5 our family members including 4 adults and 2 toddlers. We were greeted by friendly and hospital host as soon as we came in. We booked the 2 bedroom suite with a lanai equipped with a stove, small dining... More

Don't expect the usual marble reception areas, neatly uniformed staff, perfectly regimented rooms. This is more based upon the novel Robinson Crusoe. No you won't be cast adrift, but if the idea of camaraderie, friendship, homely values in an area away from the crowds is what you prefer, then this place is for you. From the moment we walked round... More

If having a swimming pool, the best modern hotel room, and closeness to the main tourist locations are vital to you, look elsewhere. I just have to get that out of the way before stating how much I adored this place. I was looking for something affordable and on the beach. My expectations were exceeded in exciting fashion.
