What a great place with great peoplePosted 27-Oct-2014
Pros: Everything. Almost feels like home. Just wish I had those beaches were I live.
Cons: Hot water in the shower. There's only hot water on an outdoor shower.
Location: You should have (rent) a car if staying in Savaneta. However there are lots of restaurants and grocery stores at walking distance.
Chose the place because of the (lowest) price but kept my expectations low. Was only going to stay there half my staying and then move to a nicer and bigger resort. No reason to do it. Staff was great, owner (Arias) lives right next door and is such a great guy. Room was huge. Actually is a one bedroom apartment with living room, kitchen, big bedroom with a nice 46/50" flat screen, DVD, VCR. Movies are also provided there. Gabriel, the chef has breakfast built to order and all you can eat pizza night on Wednesday. They also provide a nice city tour with an ATV to the Natural Pool, cave and other places only available with 4wd. Definitely coming back.

Paradise outside of the hotel districtPosted 30-Sep-2014
Pros: The owners live on site and are very helpful. The random wildlife that find their way on the grounds (Crabs, Lizards, ect) and the LOCATION!!
Cons: A phone to make local calls so you don't have to bother the owner, although they didn't seem to mind. Wifi access in the entire room
Location: It's in a quite neighborhood, a small beach a short walk, Other beaches short drive away, great food at G&Gs great prices on site and in the area
Our room was very clean and extreemly spacious. The water in the room was warm enough but we showered outside a majority of the time because it was so amazing to wash with the sun on your back or right under the stars. The property was clean and so were the pools. Breakfast was good but a little menu variance wouldn't hurt. The hotel isn't over run with people which we liked, we always had the pool to ourselves. Take the sunrise tour with Arias, it was amazing!! I would recommend this B&B to anyone who doesn't need every second of their trip planned for them and likes to venture out and see how the locals live. This place is also great if you never want to leave the property, they have a great pizza place on site with amazing wings, a few markets in walking distance, a great selection of movies to watch and they have all you can eat pizza and pasta nights. There is a cashew tree, mango tree and coconut tree on the property. When our car broke down flory(owner) called roadside assistance for us, they are very helpful.

Very comfortable room. Good hotel. Nice staff. the location is in the Savana, so is a bit far away from downtown.

wonderful placePosted 26-Aug-2014
Pros: everything. i have never been to a hotel or timeshare that i couldn't find a stack of things to dislike. it all was great here.
Cons: nothing unless you could get chef gabriel to make pizza more often.
Location: the location is in one of the small towns near the airport. it's just a few minutes drive to great snorkeling and beaches.
i had originally seen club arias when it was first built 6 or 7 years ago.at that point i got to tour all of the suites. i loved what it was about to become but it took until this week to finally stay there. we were given suite #1 which was a two room plus bath suite. it was lovely, clean, neat, artistically balanced, and the best air conditioning i have ever seen in my 27 visits to aruba. the staff and owners were marvelous and the pool was beautifully clear. breakfast each morning was tasty and certainly started our days well. another great feature is aruba bob is on property. he is the best snorkel guide on the island. that means that you will always know the best places to go to snorkel and be at the right place at the right time. all in all, i would say this place rates a 5 out of 5. can't wait to stay there again.

Look No Further This Is The Perfect Place To Stay!Posted 8-Jul-2014
Pros: Amenities, and location! The list of freebies and perks to is far to great to mention and Savaneta provides better access to the more beautiful South.
Cons: Nothing, but the staff is hard at it anyway making improvements to the grounds and adding little extras here and there every day. You'll notice it!
Location: Savaneta is just South of the heavy tourist area of Orjanestad for a more quaint experience and Zeerovers, and other beach spots are right there.
Club Arias is a cozy, family oriented Bed & Breakfast in Savaneta, Aruba that is truly an experience of Aruba in itself. Arias and Flory are gracious hosts, and their hard work making the perfect place to stay in Aruba is immediately apparent as soon as you walk in the entrance gate. A beautiful island motif throughout the enclosed grounds is something that must be seen to be appreciated and adds to the comfort of your stay, for example the rock wading pool that centers the villas section of the grounds is a work of art and the palm trees, lounge area tikki huts, and the pottery and sculptures around the big pool at the main commons area is an eyesight extravaganza. Spacious, clean and also wonderfully motifed rooms also await. Jeff the General Manager is worth his weight in gold with tips to seeing the island and adding his personal touch to your stay. Gabriel the Master Chef makes waking up to breakfast a pure joy and is also very knowledgeable about Aruba. Gloria maintains the beautiful grounds, makes sure your room is spotless upon arrival, and ensures that slipping into bed or using the linens is a crisp, clean feeling at every use. During your stay and upon their duties these people become your second island family well before your trips ending with not only advice about touring Aruba, but just a general sense of caring about you as a person as well as your vacation's progress. I assure you; you will not get this treatment or stay experience anywhere else in Aruba.

This destination is "off the beatn path". If you want a break from the routine of chain hotels and tourists while still having a great vacation, this spit's for you. Friendly and helpful staff, clean and welcoming rooms, Club Arias is definitely a good stay!

Pleasantly surprisedPosted 15-Jun-2014
We stayed here one night to bridge a stay after a week at a high rise condo. We were skeptical when the cab drove us up. It turned out to be one of our most favorite nights in Aruba. The inn was surprisingly beautiful and the staff went out of their way to assist. My only regret is not staying longer and exploring this side of the island.

Quirky!Posted 8-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
When we pulled up to Club Arias my initial thought was, Oh-oh...what have I done? Let's just say the outside is decorated to grab your attention when you're driving down the street (which helps, because we never did figure out how the addresses work there). But walking inside we found a lovely, quiet place--with two large pools and games (foosball, ping pong) available outside on a covered patio. Our host, Jeff, was extremely helpful--he made dinner reservations for us at the flying fishbone (a must in Savaneta) and brought us a tray with breakfast in lieu of their regular breakfast, as we were leaving very early the next morning. The room was huge and very comfortable. The one downside is there's no hot water in the showers in the rooms--if you want a hot shower, you must use the outdoor showers. Granted, the outdoor showers look very cool but I didn't want to venture outside for a shower at 4 in the morning!
