“I spent a week in Aruba SCUBA diving...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

...and stayed here. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food is excellent and at reasonable cost. A little inconvenient as far as getting around but as I was here to dive and rest, a couple of $10.00 cab fares into town for supplies was a lot cheaper than a rental car.
Highly recommended accommodation at economical rates!

Stayed January 2013, traveled solo

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

Friendly, cheap, some way off the main drag (too far too walk) - so hire a car for your entire stay here. Make sure you get good, clear directions before driving here for the first time from the airport, especially if it's dark ! After that it's really easy ...

A majority of the guests are Dutch students spending a few months on a student internship in Aruba; this sets the tone (free wifi at the bar/pool, good value simple meals, occasional bursts of loud music). The pool is basic. This is essentially a cheap sleep location - e.g. ideal as a base for divers or those who want a different beach to lie on every day - not a place for lounging by the pool or to expect imported Chilean seabass or US prime beef - but you can easily go to the main tourist drags for that. Solar heated water means hot is not that hot, so avoid if you need very hot showers to feel happy.

You don't get charged for the extras that other hotels have: If you need these to enjoy your stay on Aruba don't come here. If you want a hotel as a basic place to sleep only it's ideal.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms are those NOT facing the pool / bar area
