wonderful place

Posted 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.

Pleasantly surprised

Posted 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.

Unique

Posted 2-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
This was our first trip to Aruba so take this for what it is worth. What I can say is that we loved this place. It is not with all the chain and big hotels in the main tourist area. That is most definitely part of its charm. It is some fifteen minutes away from the airport. We rented a jeep so getting around wasn't an issue. We are kind of introverts and being away from the crowds was nice. The rooms are huge, the beds are extraordinary, the pools are great and the whole place is well kept up (you wouldn’t know that from the road though). The operators/owners are pleasant and willing to help with you with anything. I know they have a lot of tours and such that operate from the hotel. They would mention one coming up if they saw you around this smaller establishment. However, they never, ever, tried to sale us on one. They respected our desire to be alone. They let you use a cooler for traveling around. The food is great there too, if you need another reason to sale you on this place. Try it if you like doing things a bit different than the rest of the crowd!

A Hidden Gem

Club arias is an oasis in paradise! This bed and breakfast is as comfortable and friendly a place as you will find anywhere in the world. Thanks to Florie, Arias, Gabriel (amazing food!) and the staff.

the good and the bad

Posted 12-May-2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel itself is very cute and different, I loved the soaking pool, but chairs for pool were broken and most a little dirty, the room was clean and cute, beds were not as great in my opinion as many others said they were in reviews. I looked forward to the breakfast and was very disappointed with it the four mornings we ate there. I never knew it could take 30 minutes to make an egg and pancake, neither of which were good. Sorry for a poor review, Floriy the owner was very nice, but do not think we will return.

Hidden treasure

Posted 16-Apr-2014
Pros: Friendly staff and quietness of surroundings.
Location: The hotel is off the beaten track and is good for anyone who wants to see authentic Aruba. It is away from the commercial but no drive is far.
First time staying away from the hotel area south of the airport. Had a great ATV ride on Arias' tour. Enjoyed the peace and quiet. Only draw back is no direct access to the beach.

Oasis in savaneta!

Posted 8-Apr-2014 on Hotels.com
Received a call two days before our departure for Aruba from Jeff wanting to know if we needed transportation from airport to b&b,which i thought was very nice.. Did not take him up on it as i knew from previous reviews that there were no savings to be had by doing so. The bed and breakfast is situated away From hotel strip which again is great in order to experience life on the island with its people. The room we had reserved was fine for one night- small but quaint. Pool area is divine, guests were down to earth and friendly. Jeff brought out libations for all to enjoy-appreciated as we had not yet had the opportunity to buy our own.dinner next door-pizza and wings was tasty. Arias, the owner, came to chat with everyone and shared plans of tour for next morning, where we were taken by the enthusiasm and agreed to join in. Tour began at 6am and lasted till one. Awesome!! He mentioned to come prepared with own lunch for the day. Back at the bb, we were informed of price which we thought was a little steep but mistake was ours- we hadn t asked before going. Would definitely go back, in spite of not being by the beach. We recommend Arias' B&B!
