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.
