Our first stay at Bananas in 10 years of traveling to Aruba - What a welcome peaceful oasis away from the hubbub of the High & Low rise hotels. The owners make you feel like family. The place is quaint, clean & offers everything you would want in a place to reside while in Aruba. Close proximity to beaches &... More

We stayed at Bananas for two weeks during our fifth visit to Aruba and we have already booked a month-long visit for next year. Why? Because Bananas provided everything we were looking for in a vacation venue on Aruba. We had tried the high-rises, including a week at a time share, renting the week from the owner. We liked the...

A friend of mine is a regular but this was my first stay. What a relaxing place! The pool area and gardens are beautiful with darting green and yellow birds flitting through the palms. The owners are Dutch and everything is kept clean with all you need to enjoy your stay. It is not deluxe but comfortable and friendly. The... More

This July we where on Aruba for our annual trip to compete in the Arub Hi Winds kite and windsurf competition. Every year we make Bananas our home base. Ton and Angelique (owners) are fantastic hosts, apartments are clean and have well equipped kitchens, pool area is great. One should consider a rental car as the apartments are several blocks...

Bananas In Aruba. Well don't be shy because its not "right on the beach." Its just up the road from some of the finest small beaches in the Northern part of the island. The area has a European feeling to it. More like small beaches, more private and personal than the Mega Hotel scene that is all to common these... More

I visited Aruba in November 2013 for 2 weeks and Bananas Apartments were lovely. Hosts were wonderful and helpful and it was at a nice quiet location. I would recommend having a rental car though, at its a small trip to bus stop and there are no shops nearby. Pool is nice, rooms are comfortable and although not brand new,... More

This place has something for everyone: quiet pools, beautiful landscape, pets for children. Best location, only a 3min drive to stunning Arashi Beach. If stopping to buy groceries on the way from the airport, get dish soap and matches - as the units are equipped with gas stoves. (I wish I knew this from previous reviews, as it would have... More
