Our yoga retreat group was settling nicely into the laid-back feel of Aruba, especially as we were quartered in a mansion with a nice pool well south of Oranjestad’s crazy buzzy biz. So now we were ready to try one of the island’s most famous...More

The food and service is impeccable. Lobster and shrimp with tomato risotto was light and delicious. If you're celebrating a special occasion, please let the wait staff know or indicate in your reservation. The (surprise)birthday dessert for my husband was nice!

The sunset will be around 18.15 / 18.30. A cab is always available. They ask if you need any and they make sure there is one for you at the time you want to leave.
