Very happy with my choice to stay at this B&B. The price was perfect for my solo impulse trip. The room was ready and was perfect. Lots of space, good internet, lots of tv channels. But who cares about all that because--oh my, the VIEW! You won't find this kind of view at the resort without paying 3x for it.... More

I don't have enough words to express the gratitude we have for Ianthe and everyone at ASM. Ianthe was such a great help, she was incredibly thoughtful and paid so much attention to detail to make the event more than what we could have asked for. She was very patient, helped with the set-up, heard every little thing we had... More

This is a great small and welcoming place to stay, rooms are simple but very clean and have all that's needed for a relaxing break including beach towels, tea.coffee and toiletries, the flowers in the towels in arrival is a lovely touch. Breakfast is served on the balcony with a view over the sea and is plentiful and very tasty.... More

We needed a place to stay for 2 nights before we checked into our resort. We booked Surfside because of other reviews on TripAdvisor. This is a hidden gem in my opinion. A small marina with something like 6 rooms. The view is amazing. You can watch the sunset from your balcony. There is a great restaurant/bar on a pier... More

We stayed here from 10/22/13 until 10/29/13. It's just west of the airport and east of downtown Oranjestad, but within walking distance if you're so inclined. It's also away from the hustle and bustle of the hotel strip in western Aruba. There was a nice breakfast on the balcony every morning and we watched beautiful sunsets from the balcony in... More

Well appointed room with nice furniture and all you can possibly need, including a flashlight. Breakfast on the balcony is a nice treat. 15 min walk from town and bus station. Not ideal for beach lovers.

My wife and I had our wedding at the Aruba Surfside Marina back in October, and even though we went with the 'research-and-hope-for-the-best' approach to planning our destination wedding, I can't imagine how it could have gone any better even if we had been on the island throughout the planning process. Simon deserves a lot of praise for his personal... More

My husband and I had our wedding at the Aruba Surfside Marina on October 4, 2013. There are no words to truly describe how amazing it was - our 64 guests said the food was the best they had tasted on the island and Simon and his team did such an unbelievable job with every single detail - we could...

We stayed at the Aruba Surfside Marina in the Grand Suite for our Anniversary trip to Aruba. My husband and I are extremely pleased and would definitely stay here again. We were greeted with fresh flowers in the room to include Birds of Paradise and other beautiful flowers. All staff members were very friendly and went above and beyond to... More

Our stay at the ASM was very pleasant and above expectations. Nice view on the sea just from your bed and you could just dive from your balcony in the water. Breakfast, included in the roomrate, is brought to your room every morning at the time you requested. And for those who wants to shop till they drop, the ASM... More
