We stayed here for 8 days in the grand suite, and we loved it here. It was far enough away from the touristy areas, yet you could walk to downtown Oranjestad from here. It was very quiet and romantic here. Our room was very nice, and housekeeping kept it very clean. The breakfast consisted of a plate of fresh fruit,... More

We booked this B&B for four nights and couldn't have been happier. The rooms are spotless. The room had a balcony with a beautiful view of the ocean. There are only five units so it is quiet. If you are used to the highrise area, this place is not for you, although the highrise area is a mere 10 -... More

My girlfriend and I loved this hotel. We consider it a key part of why our trip to Aruba was so enjoyable. There are 3 "best" features that will bring us back on our next trip. 1) There's only 5 rooms. We saw so many people on the north side of the island jammed into huge hotels and we'd go... More

Our party had 7 people in 2 families. We booked adjoining units with a connecting door and had meals together. We were very pleased with the location of the hotel relative to the airport, and also far enough away from Oranjestaad and cruise ships, etc. to be peaceful, though the planes taking off were frequently noisy. The sunsets from our... More

This is considered a B&B in Aruba though it was more like a motel. If you are looking for quiet, small, intimate and very little people during the day, than this is the spot for you. It is located right on the beach and is only a 15 minute walk to the downtown (not to the high rise district) which... More

This is a smaller hotel away from the resorts and high-rises. However, it is very close to downtown for great shopping. For the price you cant beat the view. Free breakfast and Wi-Fi

The place is a nice small waterfront hotel conveniently located to the airport and downtown. The rooms are spotlessly cleaned, decent sized with fridge and microwave. Complimentary sodas are in the fridge. Breakfast served on the balcony was good. Bar/restaurant was excellent. I have stayed several places in Aruba and this is by far my favorite for the price.

I loved staying at the Aruba Surfside Marina. The breakfast every morning was large enough that I didn't even have to eat lunch. They served juicy and yummy fruit each day and varied the breakfast items. Simon and Ianthe were both gracious hosts and made sure that our stay was perfect. They provide towels and beach chairs, which meant that... More
