    About this area


    Located in Savaneta, Driftwood Gardens is near a metro station and on the waterfront. Shoppers can check out Renaissance Mall Aruba, while everyone can enjoy the natural beauty of Mangel Halto Beach and Baby Beach. Blue Parrotfish Water Park and Donkey Sanctuary Aruba are also worth visiting. Our guests appreciate the bed & breakfast's quiet location.

      Unique experience in low key hotel

      Unique experience in converted shipping containers. The place is clean but could use some additional maintenance. The room itself did not have hot water, showers are solar heated, i.e. lukewarm at best. The grounds are a work in progress, the caretakers are busy working but looks like it'll be a while before everything is updated. Random trash lying around on the ground around the exterior common areas was a disappointment. The food is just as expensive as restaurants around Aruba, but of lower quality. Tried different breakfast and dinner meals, would not recommend their food. The swimming pool is maintained well. Bottom line - good accommodations for the money spent ( substantially cheaper than the hotels in the resort areas), just don't expect too much. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

      A great place to get away from the high-rise, low-rise tourist congestion further down the island in Savaneta for an awesome "living it" island experience. Driftwood Gardens is an extension of units for the economically minded. Beautifully done efficiency units perfect for a couple or singles and complete access to the grounds and benefits of Club Arias, complete with a full bath, a kitchenette, a nice little bedroom with a comfy bed and sheets, and a long bar top perfect for eating and planning out your day. The adjoining grounds of Club Arias are beautiful and immaculate, but really makes this place special is how attentive Arias, Alfonso, Gabriel and Gloria are to doing their jobs of making you feel like you're always welcome in Aruba and part of an island family. I found this place by very happy accident 5 years ago and have stayed there in both the Club Arias suites and the Driftwood units every year since, and wouldn't think of being anywhere else. This place is special, unique and what I consider my second home in Aruba.
