  • 10.0.Exceptional

    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.

    Bargain, great for a certain type of traveler

    This is a storage unit that has been converted into a motel room just on the side of Club Arias which is listed as a bed and breakfast but I would call it a motel with very nice suites. The room has a comfortable bed, a TV that works, a fridge, a toaster oven and a microwave, a good size bathroom with a full shower and sink. No hot water, the water is warm. The location is quiet and peaceful and very close to Savaneta Beach and Mangel Halto Beach. You have the pool and the hot shower and the garden to enjoy at Club Arias. The room is very private which I love! The staff is very friendly. The owner seems nice enough, we had very little interaction with him. We ate dinner in the adjacent Restaurant one night and the owner was dining there. He was loud but obviously loves Aruba. My only disappointment was the second wading pool being filled in with sand. The big pool is great but the other pool is a big sand box. A lot of the pictures were of the gorgeous wading pool and adjacent hot tub which are not longer there. However, we did not spend one second in the pool so it was not a big loss. There are also no bike rentals anymore. An amenity update is in order for the booking listing. In summary....Loved it, if the listing was more accurate I would have never missed what was missing. I love Savaneta and I will return here as soon as I can and stay at Driftwood Gardens. Perfect for me.

    longe do agito, hotel vazio

    Hotel bom, um pouco largado, porém muito agradável. Muito longe da área turística.
