nice and friendly hotelPosted May 31, 2015
Pros: friendly staff, quiet and nice atmosphere. Felt like I was home.
Location: Location wasn't in the center, but with a rental car that's not a problem.
Arias and his staff are the perfect representation of "One Happy Island' - we hope to get back to Aruba soon!

Best kept secretPosted May 18, 2015
Peaceful part of the island. The owners are super friendly people who will show you the real Aruba and why they fell in love with Aruba. We recommend the offered 4 wheel drive adventure tour with Arias, you'll get spectacular breathtaking views. Breakfast & dinner were delicious, made from scratch home style meals. Rooms are well kept spacious and clean The beds are very comfortable. The rooms are very soundproof. I love Aruba .

Relaxing atmosphere, peacefull oasisPosted Apr 29, 2015
Club Arias, is tucked away behind high walls, right off the main road. Entering through the gate, felt like being in the garden of Eden. It was cool and lush with plants and inviting arrangements of comfortable chairs, sofas and recliners. There's a wading pool for the children and a regular sized pool with a slide. The one bedroom suite was very clean and comfortable. A car rental is a necessity to get around! I would definitely return for a visit to Club Arias.

Great place away from tourists!Posted Mar 21, 2015
Amazing honeymoon at Club Arias! If you only do one thing in Aruba do the Sunrise Aruba tour Club Arias offers! It was the best part of our trip. arias and his wife Flory genuinely want to ensure you have a great time and go above and beyond. We cannot thank them enough for the wonderful time. The area is safe and local so you get a more authentic experience. And the pizza and wings at G&G are great too!

CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, HOME AWAY FROM HOME FEEL.Posted Feb 24, 2015
Pros: CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, HOME AWAY FROM HOME FEEL.
Cons: Having a staff person on site at all times would be beneficial to guests in need of things or that have questions.
Location: 15 minute ride from airport. Out of tourist area - where the locals live. Need a car or use bus/taxi to get to restaurants/beaches.
Stayed Feb 19 - 22 2015 If you want to stay away from the tourist areas (Palm/Eagle beach and port) and more in the local area this is for you. About 30 minutes from Eagle/Palm Beach area. About 15 minutes from airport. Hotel van will pick you up and drop you off at airport for $25 each way. You need a car or $ to take bus/cabs anywhere. Property is quaint, quiet, homey, and beautifully tropical. Room 9 was very clean, bed was comfortable, mini fridge, sink, microwave, etc. Cooler, beach chairs, and beach towels are provided to use and take with you each day. Pool is large and plenty of lawn chairs, hammocks, tables, huts around pool. Wading pool in separate area has swim up bar but the bar is NOT in service (just for looks). Out door showers. Sink and shower water temp is "cool" NO hot water. AC worked great! Daily Hot Breakfast, homemade 4:00 cake (yum), water, and lemonade are included. Small restaurant on site - pizza, wings, salad. etc. MUST HAVE THE WINGS many flavors and so yummy! Telephone is free to call the U.S. There is no "front desk lobby" like in the larger hotels so the owners and staff were unreachable a lot of the time. I figured out that you can ask the chef to call them if needed. Owner and wife were very kind and informative at check-in/out. Then they leave you on your own, have to seek them out. This is a good thing if you want that home away from home experience!

Just what I neededPosted Feb 14, 2015
I wanted a place that was casual, clean and comfortable.Not a high end resort. Well, this place was perfect. The owner Arias and his wife run the place and couldn't be more friendly and helpful if they tried. Beach chairs coolers and ice are available to borrow for your trips to the beach. The perfect B&B for a relaxed vacation away from the massive resorts yet a short drive from any of the island's highlights.

Can't judge a book by its cover....Posted Feb 13, 2015
When I got in Aruba, the taxi driver asked me why I did choose this particular hotel, he told me there were better hotels closer to Oranjestad. I told him none at the price this one quoted me. It took me about half an hour to get attended by anybody. It's been raining, so there were puddles of water everywhere. There were two cats sleeping on the pool table, which was full of hair....But when I was taken to the room the situation flipped up completely: the room was ver ample, kitchenette was stocked with every piece of equipment you'll ever need, bathroom was in pristine condition; but the bed was not Tempur Pedic, as the hotel advertised. Nonetheless, I had a restful night and the surroundings were very calm and quiet. This particular hotel is ideal for those looking for an absolute relax, to rekindle old flames, but no excitement at all, just what I personally needed at this specific date. The lady administrator works her butt off trying to make your stay pleasant, but the staff in general, needs to be a just a tad more attentive. Wrapping up, it was a good stay.

By far the best of our 6 trips to Aruba.Posted Feb 1, 2015
Cons: Wouldn't change a thing.
My wife and I have visited Aruba 6 times since spending our honeymoon there 20 years ago. Until this visit we have only stayed at the high rise hotels. We decided to try Club Arias for something different this time and couldn't be happier with the decision. We were greeted with a smile, given a walk through of the property and its offerings (2 pools, dining area, game room). We were then shown to a clean and very spacious non-smoking room which was quite modern for this island (free Wifi, DVD, flat screen, separate a/c unit you can control). The room was clean, free of odors, and provided one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in, I would compare it to the Westins trademark "heavenly bed". Arias and the entire staff were so friendly and helpful. They are capable of providing you with any experience you want to have in Aruba, from leaving you alone for a peaceful visit, to daily activities such as a sunrise UTV expedition of the island, catered dinner, kite surfing etc. They allow guests free use of beach chairs, coolers, snorkel equipment for your solo trips to the many nearby beaches. They recommended the best local restaurants that you wouldn't find otherwise. The best compliment I can pay Club Arias is that it will be the only place we stay when we return to Aruba.
