Stay away awfulPosted Jun 16, 2013
Cons: No luck
Location: Terrible and doesnt look very safe.
Horrible they should be ashamed to rent out room in such disarray. Dressers broken curtains falling, towels stain and gross and not to say the least the sheet. No bed spread. Just dirty and horrible. Please no one book its gross.

this is not a resort/spaPosted Jun 21, 2011 on Orbitz
could not find it and no one had heard of if..that should have been a sign. put our bags back into car and stayed at a real resort.pool was so tiny you could hardly turn around. you had to share bathroom with other guests. people at [...]hook you up with rooms and they have no idea what it is like..they are half way around the world somewhere. I should be refunded...

Go here to eat & relax after a long dayPosted Apr 26, 2011 on Orbitz
The apartment owners are very kind and will try their best to solve any problems you have asked them for help. The owners will almost treat you like family (it's a good feeling). The staffs are friendly and nice. If you enjoy savings or really want to save money and adventure is the only plans on your vacation, stay on this place but do what I did (very important) be sure to book an everyday activity tour and make sure all the activities you select will pick up and return you back here or else rent a car or ride a bus (far from the beach, residential area). One of my adventures here begins one day when the management offered me a free ride but need to sit me at the back compartment of their SUV truck because they have relative guest to show around (for me it was a one of a kind experience to do it the first time). If you have a laptop with wireless connection, bring your microphone headset and first install/use SKYPE to make a call (cheaper than buying a local SIM card on your GSM phone). The apartment location does not have free WIFI but you could select wifi-aruba from available wireless networks to connect and pay internet usage. If you are in the hotel area there are some hotels and commercial places that offer free WIFI, you can also use that (always search the internet for locations with free WIFI to your destination). Since the apartment location is not a hotel areas always call to reconfirm your activity tour for pick up (I almost miss an activity because the bus for pick up did not show up, luckily the owner is leaving and very kind enough to offer me a free ride to my destination on time). Also to really save money bring and prepare your own food (like bread, soup cartons, sardines, tuna, soy sauce, mayonnaise, candy bars and any food in close containers, include some table napkins too) put it on your luggage. The place has everything you need for cooking (like stove, toaster, microwave, can opener, refrigerator and all basic kitchen utensils). The rooms are all secluded inside the gated compound apartment and on the center is a medium size pool for every body to use. There are wooden loungers, beach umbrella, wicker chairs and tables outside each room and on the center beside the pool is a big rectangular wooden table with matching wooden chairs also for everybody to use. On the corner there is also an open air metal gazebo enclosure. There grand suite has more to offer and have 2 giant big wooden wicker chairs enclosures (like a throne). The floor surroundings outside the rooms are all tiles, surrounded with in ground palm trees on the sides and some on the middle place on a big pottery pot. Even with air condition the room may have mosquitoes biting you at night, so bring and put a mosquito repellant before you sleep here (house rule is to only turn on air conditioner when you are about to sleep and turn it off once you wake up in the morning or else pay extra for extensive usage.) That is an additional part of my real life adventure there.
DO NOT STAY HERE ITS A SCAMPosted Feb 20, 2011 on Orbitz
WE ARRIVED AFTER FLYING 20 HOURS AND FOUND NO ONE THERE WHEN [...]CAME HE SAID 'WE ARE FULL' WE HAD PRE-PAID RESERVATIONS. DURING OUR STAY IN ARUBA WE NOTICED THAT THIS HAPPENED TO SEVERVAL OTHER PRE-PAID RESERVATION VACATIONERS. THEY THEN TOOK US TO A "COMPRABLE APARTMENT' COMPLETE WITH CATS THAT SCRATCHED ON OUR LUGGAGE AND DOGS THAT BARKED AT YOU VIA THE VERY SMALL BASEMENT WINDOW WHEN YOU OPENED THE CURTAINS. AND THEY DO FORGET TO MENTIONS THAT NONE OF THE APARTMENTS HAVE HOT WATER TO BATHE IN OR WASH DISHES. MAYBE YOU TOO CAN BE OFFERED DRUGS ON YOUR WAY TO FIND THE HARMONY OF ARUBA. YOU ARE MUCH BETTER OFF STAYING ON THE BEACH IN THE LOW RISE OR HIGH RISE HOTELS AND STAY SAFE AND IN CLEAN QUARTERS. ITS NOT A GOOD PLACE TO STAY AT ALL !!!
STAY AWAY!!Posted Jan 30, 2011 on Orbitz
We are an African-American couple. When we arrived it took over 10 min. for someone to open the gated door.[...] the owner gave us some story about the room not smelling good and shipped us off to another property where she said we could stay for our trip. We stayed at the the new apts.one night, it was not acceptable. We asked to go back to Harmony Apts.I believe that [...] had a problem with our race and did not want us to stay at her hotel.She also charged us extra for 2 persons in the room,even though room rates are the same for one or two person and is list so on her website.The ownership is not good, avoid this place!Also be aware there is no fitness center, but she has one listed.
