“Peaceful oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

We found this property to be exactly as advertised. The gardens, deck and pool are beautiful. We stayed in a king studio and had everything we needed. The bathroom has been updated. The small kitchen was more than adequate to prepare breakfast and light meals. We do not enjoy the crowding in the high rise and low rise area so this was perfect. The hotel is centrally located so we were able to explore all the beaches and spent lots of time off the beaten path. Debby and Henkel are wonderful hosts. My favorite feature was the lending library on the porch.

Truly amazing! We were treated so well by Debbie, Henk, and both cleaning ladies so well from beginning to end of trip. Yes, you do need a car rental with this location but the island is so small and safe, you can be on the beach in 10 minutes.

The rooms are kept so clean and everything works so well. No, there is no food or restaurant at the location, but the kitchen complete with full size fridge, microwave, toaster oven, etc allows for easy shopping and make your own breakfast and lunch. This, along with the cooler they provided allowed us to save lots of money from expensive restaurants, so much, we stayed an extra week. Yup, two weeks of paradise.

When we decided to stay an extra week, Debbie and henk took care of accommodations and the rental car. They even booked us a room off site for 2 days before we could get back to our oasis.

The grounds truly are oasis. Quiet, calm, peaceful, what a nice change from big resort party life. If you want to relax a bit off the beach, this is the place to do it. There are only about 12-15 units total and Debbie and Henk live right there. My air conditioning broke down overnight and it was fixed before I got back from beach next day. wow!

We are going back. Bring more family with us because we want them to experience paradise as we did. Debbie and Henk even have a 2 bedroom for us next time. They were the cat's meow. Very personal, personable, helpful and pleasurable. Cheers to tripadvisor, other people writing reviews to give us the best advice that led to the best experience and hopefully you to will feel better about your decision.

We spent only a night at this apartment hotel, and although I did my due diligence and was satisfied with the great reviews on trip advisor, the only problem I had was its location. I did not understand from their website or other comments that they don't offer breakfast nor is there any store you can walk to. If you have a car then is a good option, still overpriced as all hotels in Aruba are.

We were looking for something non-highrise, non-all-inclusive, not expensive. After seeing reviews for Paradera Park, we weighed the ease of walking to a beach with being in a warm, clean and charming little hotel, and the latter won. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Paradera Park, and as everyone else has noted, Debby and Henk were lovely and accommodating. The room was clean and spacious, the grounds comfortable and beautiful. We would definitely return.

My family of four found the excellent reviews of Paradera Park here on Tripadvisor to be right on. Debby and Henck offer guests immaculate, well-appointed rooms. The courtyard is a beautiful oasis. The two bedroom suite was perfect for us..loved the deck and having a working kitchen made having breakfast on our own and packing lunches feasible and easy. You need to know you will need to drive to the beach or restaurants, but if your style is to want to explore the island like us, you will not do better than Paradera Park in Aruba.

We spent a wonderful week in Paradera Park with our 3 boys. Clean rooms, beautiful pool and Debbie and Henk very helpful providing advice on where to shop, eat and visit. Ideally situated in the middle of the island which enables you to visit the whole island with ease.
Wifi only works around the pool, which didnt bother us, but boys would have enjoyed it in the rooms as well.
