Overall, a good stay.
My fiancé and I recently stayed here for 6 nights (Garden 4). I think this is a beautiful property with amazing staff!! The smaller garden rooms are a bit uncomfortable for extended stays, so we would probably do a bigger room in the future. The housekeeping staff kept the grounds spotless. However, the property could use some renovations. The appliances in our unit were old and the 19inch tv/remote did not work during the stay. We notified housekeeping, and they did attempt to change the batteries in the remote (which did not work). The place is very peaceful/quiet and definitely somewhere you can relax and mingle with other couples/individuals that are the like. There is plenty parking, which we really liked since the north side of Aruba (Malmok) owns itself to requiring a car. Do not be alarmed by the resident cat, he belongs there and doesn't bother. Aida (the on site housekeeping lady) is amazing and helps you with anything she possibly can. Bianca, one of the front desk ladies, was absolutely great and the most friendly/helpful person in the office. If you are in need, find her! We never had the chance to meet the actual owners, although couples who visit often said they are also helpful/friendly. We didn't utilize the pool, because we were there for the ocean. There is a supermarket and food ~1mile in distance and easy to access. All in all, it was a good stay. The only reason we don't give it a 4, is the need for renovations. We have stayed in lots of "home away type" lodging in various countries, so the potential of this property is definitely there! Would we stay there again...yes. However, would we try another property first...yes.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your review with positive criticism.
We are aware that some of our studios are in need of remodeling.
In 2012 we started renovating our Large Ocean View Studio, which came out very nice.
This year we have begun remodeling our Garden View Studios: new tiled floor and bathroom, new kitchen and bar, new queen size bed and new curtains.
Since we already have a lot of bookings and don’t want to create disturbance for our guests, we will renovate one studio at the time.
Hopefully you will come back to Aruba one day and try out one of our renovated studios!
