If you are looking for more of a private, intimate getaway in Aruba, then this is the perfect spot. Great, friendly staff; a beach frequented by locals (as opposed to Palm Beach, which is swarmed by tourists); spacious rooms; delicious daily, light breakfasts; and incredible views (watch the sunset from the balcony!). Not to mention that downtown is within walking... More

The room was very sizeable, including an area for bedroom and a lounge area for watching TV. It is in a convenient location right near the airport and pretty much driving distance from everything we wanted to do. Free parking, AC, wifi, beach chairs and beach towels. The best part was the staff would set up a continental breakfast on... More

First of all the location of the hotel is a big plus: beach is like 30 m meters from your balcony and downtown-Oranjestad is at 10 min walking distance. The Airport Queen Beatrix is also close (5-10 min by car) and this gives you the chance to admire the airplains landing on the airport, without having to worry about the... More

We have time shares at the Marriott Surf Club but my wife and I wanted to spend extra days before our weeks began. The Surfside Marina is just the place to chill. Right on the beach. Great sunsets viewed from your deck. Breakfast served each morning to your room. It's a great couples place. We've stayed here three times and... More

This is a review that I am excited and nervous to write at the same time. We had a wonderful stay at this little 6 room gem! Our room was quaint, clean and comfortable. The view was right there on the beach. All rooms are on the 2nd floor with balconies to enjoy the ocean view and breeze. Breakfast in... More

Perfect location, good value, lovely staff. We had a terrific time. The Aruba Surfside is a great alternative for those not interested in resort atmosphere (or prices). You won't see a lot of the staff, but I'm sure they are around if you need anything.

If you are looking for a quiet hotel, with easy access to a quiet beach, and yet within walking distance of the downtown area and several restaurants etc., then this is the right hotel (well actually a b&b, only 6 rooms) for you. They also arrange various events and meetings, which cause some disturbance and noise, but not too bad.... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Aruba Surfside Marina. This is for those that prefer a relaxing vacation, with clean comfortable rooms, extraordinary views from the balcony, a quiet swimming beach and fantastic restaurant ( Pinchos Bar &Grill) within a short walking distance. A delicious breakfast was delivered every morning to our balcony at the time we requested. This... More

The superior room was a nice size and had a fridge and microwave. The living room was also spacious and relaxing. Best of all...complete view from your 2nd floor balcony of the most beautiful beach.
