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.

I had a great time at Aruba Surfside Marina. The place was right on the beach. Some locals come to the beach there but it's not crowded at all and the Arubans were nice. Everyday breakfast is served on you rooms's patio. The staff were nice and the rooms are clean. It's close to the airport so you hear planes... More

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
