Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

This is the new "go-to" place to stay in Aruba. If you want to have a luxurious, private vacation then this is the place. Close to all activities and local shopping, the house was magnificent. Full kitchen, dining room, outdoor grill and all bedrooms have their own air conditioner and bathroom. Terraces all over and lounges all around the pool.

We had a great relaxing vacation and will definitely return to Merlot Villas !

Great house close to everything important

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while enjoying all that Aruba has to offer and found the location to be perfect. We booked many excursions through the Marriott. For the tours that would not pick us up at the house, we drove a few minutes to the Marriott where there is ample free parking. There is a small market just outside this gated community which is good for many last minute items or a very large supermarket about a mile away. We even found a phone repair shop nearby that had the parts and fixed my daughters phone within 2 hours. There are so many great restaurants to try that you will probably eat out a lot, but if you prefer to stay in this villa has a large kitchen with all the amenities. Since Aruba desalinates their water, the tap water can be consumed island wide and it tastes great. We really enjoyed having a pool to cool off in after we returned from our daily tours. The house was very clean and stocked with enough toilet paper so that we didn't have to run to the market day after arrival. The manager and his crew were very easy to work with from booking, payment, check in and out. They responded quickly and the few we met were very nice. We will definitely stay here the next time we visit Aruba.
