We were looking forward to our visit. Wow what a shock!!! Read the prior reviews. It is not a cleanly or sanitary place. The biggest problem we had were the dogs. Barking all the time. Dog poo poo all over and sort of an aroma. Not Cool. The owner and staff although minimal were polite and nice. The pool could have used a lot more maintenance.
Our stay there was bearable. It was just a bad situation. Nice people... But,,, They need a reality check!! Clean up your act.. Get rid of the stench and since it is an appartment, with dishes and kitchenet (sorta) Please, Please, Please, make sure they are clean. we found cocroach matter in our silverware drawers and the dishes stuck together with debris inbetween dishes. souveniers under any crevis (sorta) a kind of present left from the last guests. Not Cool Either. And last but not least we noticed some things with some of the wiring that didnt seem right. Not sure, but looked like a fire hazzard.
We talked to some of the other guests. That was a mixed bag. But They definately were aware of some of these same issues, Good Luck. You Better Read The reviews before you stay anywhere round here. We wont make this mistake again..

I spent one week at Sunflower, and I would come back anytime. I was staying in a nice studio with outdoor kitchenette offering all the convenience one needs before and after returning from the beach. I think, some of the negative reviews that point out there is no hot water do not relalize that this is customary on Aruba unless you go to much more expensive places such as the high rise hotels, which charge more for that and more for other things that are actually free at Sunflower (such as high speed internet, snorkeling equipment, etc.). You get a lot for what you pay at the Sunflower.
Independent of the studio, the grounds are very beautiful and the pool is just gorgeous. The owner (Rienke) works hard to provide a sunny, pleasant atmosphere all around. I paid $55/night and highly recommend this place if you are after value (I've been to Aruba many times, btw.)

I just spent the most relaxing five weeks of my life at the Sunflower Villa. Rienke and her staff certainly know how to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable. I loved the studio with its small private terrace, the well-kept grounds and the magnificent swimmingpool. For those of us who like to feel at home away from home this is THE place.

IT funny after reading one of the rieviews I happen to stay in the Orange room with two guest and they love it, it was very comfortalbe and I slept like a baby. The service and just feeling at home in the sun by the pool was awesome, no crowd of the hotels and the fighting over chairs.....what a way to spend a vacation relaxing like it should be, just a walk away from the beach and no rental car needed, I love my stay and I will be back each year, I just hope the Orange room is arrivable...Jim

We had an unfortunate experience of booking a stay at Villa Sunflower based on their website - pictures and description looked good. That is until we actually arrived to Aruba and saw the place for ourselves - the rooms were completely unsanitary, the pool area was unkept. No hot water in the shower, mildew, air conditioner is barely working, roaches creeping in all the time, dogs barking. This place completely ruined our vacation.

Hello Jennifer247,

I can't find any reservation of you in December 2008, so i can't find which studio you used in that time.

But i think your message over here may be with a another name.

At first.

We are all doing a job, and we'll try to do it as good as possible.
We've got a pool man, cleaning lady, and a technical service.

When something is not like you expected, please tell us, then, and only then, we have a possibility to change or explain something.

When people leave our Villa, and tell us having a good time, thanks, see you next time, we don't know, we don't learn....

About the airco.

We constantly try to explain people that when you turn your airco on, and the door and / or windows open, the airco won't work.

You will be surprised how many people turn the airco on 16 deg Celcius. and the windows open 30 deg Celcius.It won't work....

Roaches creeping in.

It's a tropical island,
We do what we can, provide bug spray (for free) and for the rest, keep your studio clean, don't keep your food on a table, or on the floor. That will help a lot.

The first thing to remember is that you rented a studio, that means that there isn't a person walking behind you, like in a hotel.
When you drop your towels on the floor in the morning, you'll know where to find them in the evening.

We change towels and linnen 2 times a week.
But when you need something, please ask.

For know, its a pitty we can't figger out who you are, so we can't do anything at the moment.

but who ever you are, sorry for your vacation, and please, in the future, where ever you stay, and you're not satisfied, tell the people, or send a email when you're back home, they are there to help you.
