Banana's appartments' owners are very friendly. There is a pool and bubble bath/pool. The appartments are fine and not super expensive. It's located 5 minutes (walking) ftom the beach and about the same time driving to the Californian lighthouse. Also it's just after the big hotels, in a calm suburb, so you get the best local aruban and tourist feeling!

Bananas is apartments. Larger than the typical hotel room but with a kitchenette. Peter and his wife Tina are very nice. Peter shows you the room and pool as well as the roof top patio. Tina introduces you to the pets. I would stay here again. Bananas is off the beaten path so it is a quiet neighborhood. The pool... More

We would definitely stay here again. The location is close to the best snorkeling on the island, although you do need a car to drive to beaches,restaurants and supermarkets. The place is immaculately clean. Maid service is provided every day except Sunday and Wednesday. The courtyard is a quiet oasis with a variety of palm and fruit trees beautifully lit... More

Perfect location (away from the busy hotel area), nice apartments, wonderful garden and pool, lovely hosts. It felt like home away from home. Definitely will be back! (Note: you need to rent a car to go grocery shopping and get around!)

My wife and I stayed at Bananas in February 2012. Since then we have been fortunate enough to visit several other Caribbean islands. When it came time to plan our last trip together before we start our family, we both instantly agreed that we wanted to come back to Aruba and stay at Bananas. The value is unbeatable, and the...

We stayed at Bananas for two weeks during our fifth visit to Aruba and we have already booked a month-long visit for next year. Why? Because Bananas provided everything we were looking for in a vacation venue on Aruba. We had tried the high-rises, including a week at a time share, renting the week from the owner. We liked the...
