We spent 14 days in our small apartment and wanted for nothing! Ingrid and Stanley are the perfect hosts, quite delightful, caring and informative. They go out of their way to accommodate any possible needs. Loved the location; close to town (15 min walk), close to the main bus station, close to the beach (15 mins). The neighbourhood is safe,...

I am very glad I stayed in this top floor apartment with a nice, adjacent large terrace. The bed was comfortable, cleaning in room was perfect, and for a budget traveller like me, it was good to have a kitchenette with gas stove, microwave, fridge as well as a coffe maker and a blender for your iced drinks. A.C., TV... More

If you're planning a short stay minus kids this is the perfect place for you. If you are travelling in a group the already reduced prices (compared to the hotels), becomes very minimal. It's very peaceful, you can cook your own meals watch netflix...A1 apartments is (depending on your pace) about a 10-15 minutes walk from all the shopping centers... More

This is a great place to stay if you don't want to stay at a hotel or want a great deal. Only a 5-10 minute walk to downtown where you can take the bus anywhere on the island for only a couple of dollars. Stan is a great owner who will take good care of you. Highly recommend.

Spent three weeks at this small locally owned apartment. One bedroom, one bath and living area. We stayed in unit C. This is basic, but comfortable, accommodations, which we like, with a kitchenette for cooking. Located in a residential area it was easy walking distance to downtown, restaurants, the bus terminal and the Renaissance Center. The hosts, Ingrid and Stanley... More

My wife and I just completed our 6th visit to Aruba and A1 apartments. We have been visiting since 2009.
