The rate of this hotel was $75 per night. You have to pay a $50 deposit, but you get that back at checkout. You should use this for your exit taxes/fees when you leave the country, if not included in your airline ticket. Our stay was very nice and simple. For an extra $20, you can check in early. We...

My wife and I are airline employees and got "bumped" off of our flight on the last day of our Aruba trip. A fellow employee (who was also bumped twice with her three other travelers) was returning to the Malibu Suites and suggested it to us. Newly renovated rooms, still working on some. Only 15 units. Tiny but nice pool...
