We would definitely stay here again. The location is close to the best snorkeling on the island, although you do need a car to drive to beaches,restaurants and supermarkets. The place is immaculately clean. Maid service is provided every day except Sunday and Wednesday. The courtyard is a quiet oasis with a variety of palm and fruit trees beautifully lit... More

Perfect location (away from the busy hotel area), nice apartments, wonderful garden and pool, lovely hosts. It felt like home away from home. Definitely will be back! (Note: you need to rent a car to go grocery shopping and get around!)

My wife and I stayed at Bananas in February 2012. Since then we have been fortunate enough to visit several other Caribbean islands. When it came time to plan our last trip together before we start our family, we both instantly agreed that we wanted to come back to Aruba and stay at Bananas. The value is unbeatable, and the...

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

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
