Wonders Boutique Hotel
Ranked #1 of 12 Oranjestad B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 6, 2013

When looking into our trip to Aruba we went on Tripadvisor to read reviews on the Wonders Boutique and let me tell you they are on point. The property is very well taken care of, the rooms are spacious (and I had a cozy colonial room 7), and the garden is an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the resort strip. The bed and breakfast is located in a residential area so I would recommend renting a car as we did, you can however walk down town but if you'd like to go to the beach it is about a 5-10 minute drive to the resort strip (eagle/palm beach). The bed and breakfast also offers free parking which is gated. We did have breakfast at the Wonders and it was delicious and Gaston always made sure we had enough food in our bellies and boy did we. I'm getting hungry just thinking of it! There is a dog on the property who is very well behaved and super friendly (would love to take him home =) ). All and all I would most certainly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone, you cannot go wrong here. The price is on point, the location, and Gaston the owner will make sure you have a wonderful trip. This place is a slice of heaven on earth.

The owner of this property has really made an effort to create a paradise and it pays off. We spent the first few days of our honeymoon there, and at first we were concerned that it was in a residential neighborhood. But our worries soon disappeared once we were inside the grounds-Gaston (the owner) has nurtured a beautiful tropical garden like atmosphere surrounding a sparkling clean pool. Our room was on ground level, and we were able to open two large doors to the pool area and sit and have breakfast on our private veranda. We did not want to leave our veranda. Because the hotel is small and not in the hustle-bustle of Eagle/Palm Beach resort area, we found it peaceful, private and romantic. I hesitate to even call it a hotel, it is more like a large home, complete with a home-like warm atmosphere, not the typical manufactured hotel feeling. If you are interested in shopping, there is a large shopping area within walking distance and some restaurants. I would not hesitate to stay at the Wonders Boutique Hotel for some R & R. On our last day, we did not want to leave.

Room Tip: ask for a room that has a veranda or patio for you to sit and have breakfast. maybe they all do, but...

A better stay could not be had at! Wonders will not disappoint, it is accurately described but better! I made reservations for next year after my third day in. Gaston and the staff could not do enough for their guests and are a pleasant start to your day! The rooms and grounds are a slice of tropical heaven! It is also nice that you can walk to town if you like but a car is a must have to see this beautiful island and Gaston has a car park so there are no worries! Gaston is a busy hotelier who will go out of his way to please you at every turn!

This was such a fun stay for us. Gaston is just exceptional in his customer service and making you feel welcome. We loved the Garden setting and having coffee and croissants outside our room by the pool. We can't wait to come back, it was so peaceful and unique.

Thank you Gaston for sharing your bed and breakfast with my husband and I. We had a wonderful stay! You cooked breakfast for us while we sat by the pool. You made reservations for us at restaurants when we were running out the door to get to the beach. You generously lent us your cooler so we could store our water/beers. You personally came to the airport to pick us up. Our rooms were cleaned well and smelled lovely. You gave us much personal service and so we very much enjoyed our stay. We will miss your dog Griffin! Thank you from our hearts!

We recently overnighted here on our way to Bonaire. Picked it because of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Gaston met us at the airport and within 20 minutes we were sitting in a beautiful garden complete with small pool and beautiful surroundings. The hotel is simple and peaceful. The main living area is a zen like open area with soft music and attractive furnishings. Our room was on the first floor with a small but very adequate bathroom, kingsize bed and good air con. I noticed several of the rooms opened right on to the patio area. The entire property is fenced. It is about a fifteen minute walk to the downtown area where public transportation is available. The made to order breakfast served on the patio was a really nice way to begin the day. Only reason I did not give it a five was because of the barking of many neighborhood dogs. Ear plugs are a wonderful thing however and that said We will definitely return.

Room Tip: Should note that Wonders does not take young children and there is no onsite fitness center, just se...

We stayed at Wonders for 10 nights in late February/early March. The hotel was nicely decorated and the grounds were beautiful. Our second floor room had a private balcony and was large with a lot of closet storage, which was perfect for a longer stay. Gaston, the proprietor, was very attentive and friendly. Our room was very simply decorated and clean. It could be a little more plush, but was comfortable for us. The only thing that bothered me was the periodic barking of neighborhood dogs, but our friends who stayed in a different room were not bothered by this - I think it just depends on your room location and how sensitive you are to noise when trying to sleep. The pool was impeccably clean and we enjoyed it often. Felt safe in this area, although we had a car so did not do much walking around the neighborhood. Good location close to town. Great price. We would definitely come back and recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Room 5 was very large with a large bathroom and lots of closet storage and a private balcony, but al...
