Quiet GetawayPosted Jul 18, 2017
Pros: Loved the staff and the overall nature aspect of the hotel.
Cons: Could do some dusting in the rooms and the pool should be clean more.
Location: You have to try the Flying Fishbone Restaurant and the One Man's Sea. Enjoy some ATV rides and do some snorkeling.
First, we were greeted by Alfonso which he is awesome. The room we had was okay but it needed some cleaning. However, there were lizards in the room which we were able to catch one of those suckers. The hotel staff accommodated us for the issue and all was well. I have to say the breakfast was amazing. We booked an ATV trip for half day which was great. If you stay here, definitely do the tour for Arikok National Forest, We wanted to view the real culture of Aruba and staying here allowed us to take everything in. The hotel staff was great and very professional especially Alfonso. If you ask me if I would return, then yes I would. But get some mosquito repellent when you go.

Great valuePosted Apr 24, 2017
Pros: The bed and the pool area were both great. It was convenient to have on-site food service.
Cons: Clean or replace the pool and foosball tables. Offer more lower-cost excursions from the hotel. Improve cable television service.
Location: Club Arias is near the Flying Fishbone, an upscale restaurant. We didn't make reservations in advance and were disappointed we couldn't dine there
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.

Far away from beachPosted Mar 25, 2017
The room we rented had no shower which for me was unexpected. There are outside public showers but the hot water from 5pm till 10pm so if you won't make it at that times than you only have options for cold shower. Far away from beach or town so defiantly need rental car cause cabs are expensive.

Terrible location and even worst manager/ownerPosted Mar 19, 2017
Pros: Good breakfast
Location: Nothing is around this hotel
I called ahead to let Club Arias know that I will be checking in late. The first reaction of the owner was since you are coming at 8:30pm you can check yourself in. When I asked how am I supposed to find my room, owner agreed to meet on arrival. Next day after all day tour decided to jump into shower only to find out there is no hot shower. Had to take cold shower. This place is so far away from any attractions or shopping so next day we decided we will stay in until we had to leave so I requested late checkout but owner said even 30 min late will cost me extra $25. I didn't want to create the fuss so we were out of room on time and she did let us keep our luggage in the office. At the time of checkout I requested owner to call the cab company to pick us up at 1:30pm and she did. I confirmed with her multiple times that she is sure cab will come on time, she said yes not to worry. We had 2 hours to kill. Since Club Arias advertises pool and foos ball table we decided to give it a try. First we tried foos ball table, completely rusted and rods wouldn't even move without making stomach churning noises. Then tried pool table only to find out how disgusting it was. We went outside at 1:25pm and wait for taxi to come. 1:30pm comes and goes, 1:50pm comes no taxi still. Owner or no information can be found on the property to help. Now I find myself standing on the road in unknown country and waving my hand frantically at every passing car hoping someone can take us to airport.

Public transportation is very convenient clean.Posted Mar 18, 2017 on Hotels
Not so good. The place needs serious make over in terms of basic cleanliness, lighting, better lounge, more choices and better breakfast. No room service, no hot showers.

A fine stay off the beaten pathPosted Mar 15, 2017 on Orbitz
Cons: Too much cat hair near the clubhouse/restaurant. Also got a lot of mosquito bites outside the clubhouse/restaurant.
Location: Zeerovers has good ad inexpensive fried fish.
The pools were probably the highlight of this property, otherwise a pretty average experience.
