I and my wife stayed for 3 days on a studio in Aruba Sunflower Villa. If you are the kind of traveller that don’t need 5 star luxury accomodation and like to have your own kitchen, this is a good place to stay. Why spend 3 ou 4 times more money in a hotel if you probably will be out the most part of the day? Aruba Sunlower is well located, close to the Marriot Hotel, on Palm Beach. Of course, for the price, don’t expect to stay in front of the beach, but walking, you will take only 5 minutes to reach it. The Bus Stop is even closer and if you don’t have a car, it is very convenient. We only rent a car on our last day, to explore the rest of the island and return to airport. The ambient is very familiar and the owner (Mrs Rienke) was very helpful and friendly. She has 3 smart dogs (female) and we did’nt hear any barking at night.
We asked for the airport pickup (U$ 15,00), and Mrs Rienke was expecting us at Airport on the scheduled time (7:00 AM). The path to the lodging was like a city tour, with Mrs Rienke explaining us the main attractions of Aruba. On arriving, she prepared a coffee for us. As we were there in low season, we didn’t have any problem with early check-in and late check-out.
We were asked to turn off the airco when leaving the apartment and not flush our toilet paper. We don’t see any problem on these environmentally correct recommendations. Altough there was no hot (boiling) water, the temperature of the shower was warm, ideal for a confortable bath.
The swimming pool is big and excelent for swimming day or night.
I think that Aruba Sunflower has a good cost-benefit and I would stay there again.
