I was staying a few extra days by myself and needed a safe location and didn't want my overnight stay to cost more than the flight discount I was saving! Malibu was it! I arrived early and the gentleman checked me in and said I was welcome to leave my bag and hang by the pool until something was ready.... More

Unfortunately we didn't make our plane home & had checked out of the Divi All Inclusive (which was fabulous) which left us with few inexpensive room choices. This hotel was disappointing for $100 a night. Bugs in the room, rude written messages about not turning the ac too low, the shower ran luke warm water at best, horrible blow dryer,... More

Very nice people. Nice clean room and facilities. Within walking distance to Nikky beach and Downtown.Great advice on where to go. If you have to stay overnight in Aruba, it is the best option. Erick Oribio Baltimore

Great service and room for only $75/night. Can't beat that. Clean room and facilities. Within walking distance to Nikky beach and Downtown. Hotel management gave us great advice on where to go snorkling and even how to get there (public bus system; very helpful service) Definately will go back on my next trip to the island.

I could walk to the beach any time the security of the island in general is good. The hotel also has free airport shuttle hotel, airport hotel there and... More

A one night stay at this hotel was the worst experience we had on an otherwise perfect vacation. First, the hotel claims it has double bed rooms which in the US usually means 2 beds that can each let 2 people sleep in. At Malibu double bed means one queen sized bed that can sleep 2. We found this out... More

I stayed at Malibu Hotel.The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable,and the owners are incredibly friendly. When we visit the island, we don't look anywhere else. This year, we're going to Aruba for christmas and new year's and not only we're staying there, we've booked for 10 nights and that says a lot. Whatever the purpose of your trip... More
