Pros: Aruba reef was an amazingly peaceful, scenic, comfortable place that allowed us to lay out all day on a private beach. My girlfriend and I came here at the end of June 2014 and stayed 3 nights. The quiet atmosphere was definitely needed after a hectic day of travel. Fred the owner was very nice and left us be...

We got back from our 4 day stay at Aruba Reef almost 5 days ago, and we're still mourning the fact that we had to leave. Aruba Reef is total perfection -- from the gorgeous private beach, beautiful and spacious apartments, adorable dogs, to FRED (the coolest/nicest guy ever), breathtaking views, and amazing Bali-inspired decor, this place is a total...

Aruba Reef Apartments is a wonderful place to get away and feel like you have discovered a private island. At the opposite end of Aruba from the big hotel and restaurant scene, you are transported to an earlier time in Aruba. Enjoy a quiet beach, the solitude of a hammock on your deck or in the tiki hut out on...

My husband and I just returned from our one month stay in Aruba. We have visited the island for 27 years and have been exposed to many of the treasures that Aruba has to offer. We no longer stay at our time shares at the low rises, but have found another true gem we call "Paradise" or "Freddy's Place", where...

This was my first time in Aruba and I vacationed alone. Naturally I was concerned about safety but my worries quickly faded away as I was welcomed to "Paradise" by the owner Fred. I felt like a member of the family and very well taken care of. I went on this vacation alone so that I could relax and this...

I was only able to stay for a few days, visiting local friends before meetings in Florida. My apartment was what I might hope for in Bali - walking off the covered patio, I could be in the water in 10 steps. I appreciated being able to swim, kayak, snorkel whenever I wanted - and there was no fighting for...

We have been to Aruba lots, now we really know Aruba!! Was a amazing romantic private getaway. If you are not one who wants to be catered too & don't mind all the other vacationers at a resort.

Fred gives a 5-star service. He is very nice and welcoming. However, the apartment that we got was not that clean (kitchen, bathroom, shower, bed). It really needed a good clean. Location is not that great. It is peaceful but not that relaxing because you have to drive 30 minutes to get to the nice beaches, if you don't get...

I really don't know where to start, so I will start with Fred. The world would be a much better place if there were more people like Fred.

Over the double doors at the main entrance to Aruba Reef is the word, 'Paradise'. It's just that. Not only is it wonderful, energizing and yet restful, but you meet the coolest people who are also looking to experience this beautiful country, but away from the 'Panama City' high-rise. Fred is fantastic and delivers Aruban charm with European style. Everything...
