Excellent Friendly ServicePosted 3-Nov-2013
Pros: Clean, nice rooms, reasonable cost
Location: Close to airport, but should rent a car to tour the island.
Great hotel. To make a long story short... they made a special delivery of our luggage that got left behind so we could make our departing flight.

Best Family Hotel in ArubaPosted 2-Nov-2013
Pros: Clean, safe, the great feel of a small hotel, people that care about their guests.
Location: Location is off main highway, close to the Airport, but you would benefit from having a car to get around. Pictures on web site are accurate.
The best combination of a quality hotel and a bed and breakfast. Rooms very nice, FRIENDLY staff, you talk to the owners themselves. The quality of service is supreme, free hot breakfast in the morning. Perhaps best thing is the Rhino (ATV) tour that they offer. While tour is not cheap, you get the feel of being pampered like the rich and famous... it is a private individual trip (about 6 hours) in which you avoid the crowds and see some of the best off road things on the island. Location is 10 minutes from the airport. Would definitely stay there again. Owners are Flory and Aria (from the US)... they live on site (a safe and quality place to stay).

Get to know the real Aruba!Posted 15-Oct-2013
Pros: Quite, relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. Arias makes you feel at home right away. Great option for those looking to get away from the crowds!
Location: Great location to see how the real Aruba. Lots of local eateries to choose from and access to great beaches (Baby beach is just minutes away)
If you enjoy seeing the true culture and get a feel for the real Aruba, then this is your place. We stayed with Arias for 4 nights to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. From the moment he picked us up at the airport we knew this was going to be a special trip. Club Arias is located in Savaneta which is on the other end of the island from the high-rise hotels and tourist areas. The facility is great with comfortable, spacious rooms, great pools, private (enclosed) outdoor showers (big enough for two people) and generally a very relaxed atmosphere. Arias will help you find the best local places to eat. We checked out Zeerovers (awesome locals place with great on-water eating), the Flying Fishbone (pricey but had a romantic atmosphere on the beach), and a local carnival that was happening. Arias rents cars right from his place and also provides coolers and beach chairs. We were at our first beach (Mangel Halto), drinks in hand, within two hours of landing at the airport! Arias knows where to send you for what you are looking for. See the real Aruba and get away from the crowds at Club Arias! I also HIGHLY recommend the Aruba Sunrise Tours they run as well!

Nice hotel. Not clear what you are paying forPosted 30-Sep-2013
Pros: Location is out of the tourist area.
Cons: Price & airport transportation
Location: Very local feel. Out of the way. More real .....
It is listed as $45 or $50.00 and then when you check out they add $55.00 in taxes and charges...that makes for an expensive breakfast. They indicate they have airport transportation available with a "possible surcharge..(surcharge MAY apply...) how clear is that...?;

Nice place; small, quaintPosted 26-Sep-2013
Pros: ffree phone calls to USA. Option for off-road island tour on ATV, for a small fee.
Cons: No hot water in the rooms. There is access to an outside/communal shower that does have hot water. It was quite unique and interesting
Location: Location could present a problem. Rental car or other form of transporation is a must. Club Arias is located about 30-40 minutes from downtown etc.
My (adult) daughter and I spent 3 days at Club Arias. This could be a destination in itself, as it has a very relaxing atmosphere. Unfortuantely we didn't know that, and had already made several appointments/plans to do things on other parts of the island, not realizing how far this place was from many of the happenings (e.g.downtown, resteraunts, major hotels and resorts and all the amenities that they bring, night life, cultural festival, etc.) Arias, his wife and daughters are great, seemingly treating all their guest like family.

Totally relaxing and comfortable! Warm & invitingPosted 26-Aug-2013
Pros: Personalized service. Hosts are readily available to help with any questions. Chef prepared breakfasts and late afternoon snacks. Simply relax!
Location: Great restaurants. Lovely quiet beaches. Fantastic snorkeling!
Loved the private, quiet setting. Breakfast cooked to order each day. Friendly and welcoming hosts. Club Arias is a great way to experience the true beauty of Aruba away from the hustle and bustle of the high rise hotels yet within easy driving distance of all the activity. Be sure to snorkel with their guys:Aruba Bob and Stuart!

Hodge-Podge Seems To Be The NormPosted 14-Aug-2013
Pros: The option of 3 pools, a cooler and nice beach chairs for no extra charge.
Cons: Offer people what is advertised online, and clean, repair and maintain the facility.
Location: Baby Beach is great with clear water, soft white sand and average snorkeling. Lots of bees at the beach. Both my husband and myself were stung.
B.room faucet never worked, floor (shoes stuck to it and had to mop it myself), bed linen and furniture filthy. Asked to have faucet fixed 2x, never happened. Guests wonder if owner has used one pipe (rather than one per utility) for sinks, showers and toilets. Thus, when someone is flushing, etc., another unit has no water. Finally, moved to another room. Room with no bathroom water was immediately rented out. A lot of repeated pressure to participate in his x-curric. activities with fluid costs per guests. Pools were never chemically tested and the food was horrible with a very moody cook. Dinning room was filthy, dark and smelled like mold. Other guests experienced a shower that never worked, a bees nest or an air conditioner that didn't work. Bottom line -- the hotel is run down repaired with a hodge-podge approach and the owner is using smoke and mirrors to take people's hard earned money.
