A1 Apartments Aruba
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We were there for 2 weeks and were wery happy with our choice of hotel. It was a short distance to downtown and the beach. Also, a good grocery store right next door.

It felt like we were VIP guests and many thanks to Ingrid and Stanley.

Stayed: February 2013, traveled with family

Worst place for the money! Road is tore up in front of it and there already was no parking. Hacking dog. Comforter had holes. Appliances disgusting. No hot water. If you leave your room, owner will enter and turn off air conditioner. No privacy.

We had a wonderful time in Aruba. Our stay at the A1 apartments was great. Sameul was great at helping us get from the Airport to our Apartment and helping us rent a jeep. He was a wonderful host during our stay. And we can not thank him and his family enough. We are planning to return again. Our Apartment was clean and well kept we were able to come and go and it was great to have the mountain as a land mark to find our way home.

We stayed just 1 night, during a layover between our evening arrival from the US & an early morning flight to Curacao. However, Stanley was a very gracious, accommodating & friendly host. He picked us up from the airport (as arranged via email), carried our luggage up to the 2nd floor room, and gave us drinks that evening, and again the following morning before departure. The room was basic, but clean & quiet. The AC worked well. A word of warning, the shower only has cold water. This seems to be standard on the island, so if you absolutely must have a hot shower, then this place is likely not for you.

We stayed 5 days at Stanley and Ingrid B&B and were really happy about our choice.
The apartment is very functional and clean, the location is perfect (super close to the town center and different beaches) and the hosts are very nice and helpful, they'll do anything to help make your stay amazing !
I'd definitely go back to their B&B if going to Aruba again !
Thanks for everything Stanley and Ingrid !

Good location, 5 min walk to main center, 15 min walk from the beach and 3 large grossery stores. Ingrid and Stanley are very kind and serviceminded owners providing you with all information needed. The room is big and clean and the kitchen is nice, Aircondition is silent. The wifi is great and fast.

I just got back from my week in Aruba. I stayed at A1 apartment for 3 nights. Yes, it is budget stay according to American standards. But it provides everything necessary. More importantly, Stanley and Ingrid made it home for me. I was going through some difficulties in my personal life and was traveling by myself. It was such a big relief to see Stanley waiting for me at the airport. Ingrid detected I had a fever and treated me with medicine and food and consoled me. I met some great people who were also staying there and had a great time!
