“very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We spent a couple of days in teh Arubiana Inn in Febraruy 2013.
The owner, who checked us in was always very friendly and helpful. The room was big, clean and we had everything we needed.
We would go back and we can recommend that place!

First of all, if you are looking for a high rise hotel with fanzy extras such as a casino or something like it, this it not for you. This a no-frills hotel made by dutch for dutch tourists mainly. The pool is lovely but is far away from the beach to go on foot (but the island is quite small). The area is a residential one. The rooms are quite good and modern but the bathrooms could be better. If you are on a budget, you should take this hotel into account!

[I stayed here twice in 2008]

As my title already describes, it´s a good hotel with a nice swiming pool and nice pepole, but it´s far from the beach. I would only recommend if you are on a budget and cannot afford the other surrounding hotels and resorts.

Average, no frills,10 min walk to the beach(keep left over main street towards Amsterdam manor-yellow 2-story building), free fast wi-fi everywhere in Aruba even on a beach (close proximity to hotels), we FaceTime'd for free to US instead of roaming-quality was superb. Ask room farther from courtyard- they serve breakfast 8-10am and it's really noisy.Overall great experience,

Room Tip: Ask room farther from courtyard- they serve breakfast 8-10am and it's really noisy

On a budget? This is what you get on this island. Needs to be updated and could use a more frequent deep cleaning. Rooms have fridge and coffee pot, beach towels and cooler. You can rent nice beach chairs for $6 daily. Breakfast is served in courtyard daily for $10, includes coffee, juice, toast, egg and ham sandwich, yogurt and fruit. Great place to meet other travelers and the staff was friendly (Sarah and Marijan). Overall, glad we only stayed 2 nights.

Room Tip: Not the cleanest
