What a large and beautiful pool area! Very well maintained. Loved it and that would be the only reason that I would consider staying here again. Pros: Pool, Price (relative to beachfront properties), Authentic Arubian residence, Air conditioning Cons: Very outdated and shabby rooms. Drawers that wouldn't stay closed, missing light bulbs, broken microwave, moldly grout in bathroom, curtains that... More

Not a 5 star but has all that you will ever need for an affordable holiday vacation in Aruba at an affordable price. Car is recommended - 2 minute drive 15 minute walk to Ritz Carlton Palm Beach. We preferred the savings of not being actually on the beach but having the serene seclusuon but soon close to the action

The manager Hanck was very helpful, advising us the best place to see, the nicest... More

This was our second stay at Cunucu. We would definitely recommend for anyone who wants a peaceful retreat but with all the amenities of home. John and Eleanor (on-site owners) are extremely helpful and lots of available information. Beaches and shopping are close by and a spotless pool outside your door if you prefer. We will return!

Just far enough from the crowds but close enough to get anything you want in minutes. The pool Was great after a hot day at the beach. Be sure to ask staff to arrange. Rental car lots to see and Do for such a tiny island.

This is a cute little stop over place for us. True it is off the beaten path and you will need a car. But the +'s out weighted that. We got to fly down on a Wed., saving us $300. on our flight. We got to rent a car for $100 for 3 days and they delivered our car to... More

As mentioned - too many rude and obnoxious Venezuelans. Absolutely no consideration for other vacationers. BBQ needs replacing and not just new parts purchased. You could not use it. Internet/Wi-Fi also sketchy. It's a beautiful spot but needs more supervision by management. Sure the owners didn't know about all the Venezuelans that came to their property.

Quiet and private the neighborhood it is off from your regular tourist attractions the local super market is about three blocks away and in May the temperature is about 90 degrees and the walk can be difficult . If you want to go local its a good place to be.
