Great value

Posted 24-Apr-2017
Pros: The bed and the pool area were both great. It was convenient to have on-site food service.
Cons: Clean or replace the pool and foosball tables. Offer more lower-cost excursions from the hotel. Improve cable television service.
Location: Club Arias is near the Flying Fishbone, an upscale restaurant. We didn't make reservations in advance and were disappointed we couldn't dine there
My wife and I stayed at Club Arias in early April 2017. We were very pleased with the accommodations. The complex is older than the newer luxury resorts on other parts of the island. But we very much enjoyed the space, the pool and the on-site food service. That there wasn't hot water in the room shower (a shower with hot water is available near the pool area) was a minor inconvenience, but it did not detract from the enjoyment of our stay. We felt we got what we paid for - and then some. I'd certainly recommend Club Arias, particularly for those traveling to Aruba on a bit of a tight budget. Do know that, if you don't rent a car, you'll need to rely on bus or cab service to get to the high-rise area or downtown, the starting point for popular excursions. We did not rent a car but felt we got to see and do what we wanted. We did do a good bit of walking, and we made regular use of the local bus service.

Far away from beach

Posted 25-Mar-2017
The room we rented had no shower which for me was unexpected. There are outside public showers but the hot water from 5pm till 10pm so if you won't make it at that times than you only have options for cold shower. Far away from beach or town so defiantly need rental car cause cabs are expensive.

Terrible location and even worst manager/owner

Posted 19-Mar-2017
Pros: Good breakfast
Cons: Everything
Location: Nothing is around this hotel
I called ahead to let Club Arias know that I will be checking in late. The first reaction of the owner was since you are coming at 8:30pm you can check yourself in. When I asked how am I supposed to find my room, owner agreed to meet on arrival. Next day after all day tour decided to jump into shower only to find out there is no hot shower. Had to take cold shower. This place is so far away from any attractions or shopping so next day we decided we will stay in until we had to leave so I requested late checkout but owner said even 30 min late will cost me extra $25. I didn't want to create the fuss so we were out of room on time and she did let us keep our luggage in the office. At the time of checkout I requested owner to call the cab company to pick us up at 1:30pm and she did. I confirmed with her multiple times that she is sure cab will come on time, she said yes not to worry. We had 2 hours to kill. Since Club Arias advertises pool and foos ball table we decided to give it a try. First we tried foos ball table, completely rusted and rods wouldn't even move without making stomach churning noises. Then tried pool table only to find out how disgusting it was. We went outside at 1:25pm and wait for taxi to come. 1:30pm comes and goes, 1:50pm comes no taxi still. Owner or no information can be found on the property to help. Now I find myself standing on the road in unknown country and waving my hand frantically at every passing car hoping someone can take us to airport.

Public transportation is very convenient clean.

Not so good. The place needs serious make over in terms of basic cleanliness, lighting, better lounge, more choices and better breakfast. No room service, no hot showers.

A fine stay off the beaten path

Posted 15-Mar-2017 on Orbitz
Pros: Pools
Cons: Too much cat hair near the clubhouse/restaurant. Also got a lot of mosquito bites outside the clubhouse/restaurant.
Location: Zeerovers has good ad inexpensive fried fish.
The pools were probably the highlight of this property, otherwise a pretty average experience.

Loved it.

Posted 1-Mar-2017 on Orbitz
Pros: They have auto rentals, excursions, and snorkeling which can all be arranged for this hotel.
Location: We rented a car and went to all the points of interest on the Island. We were there during Carnival and were able to take in several parades.
This gem is located south of the airport in Savaneta. It was very quiet. All rooms are suites. We had a microwave and fridge. They even provided a cooler in each room. The pool area and gardens were lovely. Most days the pool areas had no one or only a few guest using the facilities. In our welcome packet was information and directions to local dining and points of interest. Couldn't have had a better experience.

So happy we chose here! Loved it!

Posted 28-Feb-2017 on Orbitz
Pros: Everything, the friendly owner Flory just couldnt do enough for you. the quietness and privacy of the property. The size of the rooms.
Cons: You must sit outside your room to acquite wifi, not a bit deal as its always so warm.
Location: Baby beach, a popular beach isnt far , plus great restaurants. This is in a oocal part of the island not the touristic side.
We had such a great stay here, flory the owner gave us such great advice on everything and is so lovely. The pools are surrounded by gorgeous gardens and breakfasts are generous too. Pizzas are avaiable evenings from the kitchen which are really good. Pasta and bbq lunches are organised too. The suites are big, so comfortable and well equipt with a microwave and small ovens should you need them. The reataurants down the road are two of the best on the island, wihing walking distance. Watersports centre next door is the best, he really looks after you on a day out. we loved our stay and Aruba surely seduced us, we miss it. And ofcourse ill come back to Club Arias.

Great stay for family of three!

Posted 27-Feb-2017
We stayed at Arias for a week and had an excellent experience. The room was spacious, well decorated, clean, and comfortable. The air conditioner made the room nice and chilly after a long day out in the sun. The property itself is very beautiful with lots of tropical plants which must have attracted the most stunning hummingbirds! My 10 year old daughter really enjoyed the kids pool and the cute cats on the property. The cats pretty much leave you alone unless you actively seek them out to pet them. The breakfast was always delicious and made to order. My husband caught fish and the chef cooked it for us which was really yummy. We also rented a car from the hotel for $35 per/day. We also rented snorkels for $5 per/day. There are grocery stores and restaurants within walking distance. You will need transportation to get the to the best beaches. The location of the hotel is about 15 minutes from the airport and about a $25 taxi ride. You can also get a ride from the hotel for the same price. The owner puts pride into her work and it is reflected in the property. If we were to go back to Aruba we would stay here again.
