Perfect location, good value, lovely staff. We had a terrific time. The Aruba Surfside is a great alternative for those not interested in resort atmosphere (or prices). You won't see a lot of the staff, but I'm sure they are around if you need anything.

If you are looking for a quiet hotel, with easy access to a quiet beach, and yet within walking distance of the downtown area and several restaurants etc., then this is the right hotel (well actually a b&b, only 6 rooms) for you. They also arrange various events and meetings, which cause some disturbance and noise, but not too bad.... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Aruba Surfside Marina. This is for those that prefer a relaxing vacation, with clean comfortable rooms, extraordinary views from the balcony, a quiet swimming beach and fantastic restaurant ( Pinchos Bar &Grill) within a short walking distance. A delicious breakfast was delivered every morning to our balcony at the time we requested. This... More

My wife and I stayed 8 days at Surfside and found it to be immaculately maintained, very safe, and a wonderfully relaxed and affordable alternative to the too-pricey resorts with amenities you probably won't have time to use. Our room had calming colors, a mini- kitchen, a comfortable bed, shower and bath, dead bolts on the front and balcony doors,... More

We stayed for one week in our honeymoon, it's not close to the most famous beaches in the island, so it was very calm and there was no sign of crowd! The rooms are wide and very clean. Since we arrived till the moment we left we felt like home. It's very close to the airport but, after closing the... More

My wife and I stayed at the Surfside Marina for four nights in January. Upon arrival we were taken to our room, #111, and given a brief tour . The room was clean, cool, and ready for arrival. The room, facility, courtyard, view, etc. are all accurately shown in the photos, we encountered no "surprises". The view from the balcony... More

The Surfside Marina was a great little find in Aruba. We had a very clean and simple room with ocean views. Our bed had crisp white linens, and was made everyday. Everyone that we encountered at Surfside was super sweet and helpful. Truly made you feel at home and welcomed.

Stayed in the Surfside Marina for 10 nights. From the moment we arrived to the time we left we had an amazing time. The manager welcomed us and told us all about the island, where to go, what to do etc. She showed us to our room which although only a studio was huge. A good bathroom with tub, plenty... More

I stayed here for 5 days during my honeymoon. We were received with a bottle of wine! The rooms are so big and perfectly organized and clean. Lcd TV, Internet, fridge, small kitchen and a bathtub. About everything you need. Staff attention was good. Only complain is that breakfasts were a bit repetitive. Overall it was a perfect stay.
