“Great place to stay and have fun...”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

Great people, clean and friendly atmosphere all in a cozy setting looking out over the water... This place is right down past the Marriot and a short walk to any of the shops and restaurants. The place is clean and well maintained and picture perfect for sunsets from the deck. I have made it my passion to go back every year now for almost 10 years! You can get a room overlooking the water or save some money and hang out on the deck which gives you the same view. Try it and you will love it and go back every year like me...

Room Tip: If you want to save a few bucks get a room in back but enjoy the ocean view from the community deck...

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we were very pleased with our experience at Aruba Beach Villas. Wonderful accomodating staff. Our hostess provided us with snorkel gear and even told us the best places to find fish. The people who run the office were very pleasant and provided a very intimate and warm atmosphere. They even put out the grill in front of our room so that we could cook up some fresh Mahi. The room was very clean and our bed was comfortable. They have a nice pool connected to a hot tub which was a nice touch after a day of swimming at the beach. I love the fact that there was a kitchenette and a fridge so we could cook, as the restaurant prices are pretty high for an extended stay on the island. The location was awesome and it was very nice waking up in the morning to a beautiful ocean view. Overall, I recommend this hotel and we plan on coming back because we had such a nice time.

Aruba Beach Villas? Well, if you are looking for something with marble floors, multiple restaurants, crystal chandeliers and champagne delivered to your suite, this is not the place. On the other hand this is the perfect place to relax, take it eaxy, meet a lot of fun peopla of all ages and be as lazy or as active as you want. Windsurfing/kiting anyone? This is definitely the place to be. We stayed in Aruba Beach Villas in 1992 for the first time and this February was our 18rh visit to this place. It has improved over the years very much. As a hobby gardener I especially appreciate the landscaping, it is so well looked after. All the rooms got upgraded, the new pool and hot tub, new windsurfing equipment and list can go on. Aside from great windsurfing we always look forward to be together with the people who - like us - keep coming back year after year. It's like coming home to the family. But even if you are a newcomer you will become member of the family in no time. The management are wonderful people, very friendly, helpful and accommodating (...even if you lock yourself out of your room after 8PM on Saturday night like I did this year...). Same goes for maintenance staff, if something needs fixing it gets done right away. As for accomodation you can get non-ocean view room, which is good if you are light sleeper. Ocean view rooms are facing the road, but it is not busy at night, so no problem there. Also, you can watch the most spectacular sunset every evening right from your own private deck. We appreciate the kitchenett and barbecue, so you can prepare your own meals if you choose so. We found Aruba's restaurants a bit too pricey. If you enjoy taking a dip in the ocean, take 5 min beach walk to the Fishermen Huts. There is a beautiful sandy beach with clear turquoise water deep enough for swimming and shallow enough for kids to play. After windsurfing - or any other daily activity - you can relax at the pool, soothe sore muscles in the hot tub and swap windsurfing stories with friends. If you happen to be a tennis player, there is a great tennis club just 5 min drive from the Villas.
Every day after 6PM everyone gathers on the veranda witn a glass of beer, wine or any other beverage to watch the sunset - and hopefully get a glimpse of the green flash....
Well, another great day in Aruba...

My husband & I just returned from a week stay at ABV. We're not the type of people who enjoy the resort or all-inclusive type experience and chose ABV for this reason. The location was perfect for us, away from the hustle & bustle of the high-rise hotels. My husband is also an avid windsurfer and our room rate for the week included gear rental which was a bonus. More about the gear- gaastra sails most new, some 2011, the boards were fanatics, a few years old. Many of the foot straps needed replacing but Phil (owner) was happy to change them upon request. Phil was also very helpful in judging the wind each day & making gear recommendations based on the wind conditions.
Onto the rooms- we're pretty laid back travelers and have stayed in both high end hotels & budget hotels around the world. We found the rooms to be clean but slightly rundown and in need of maintenance. We stayed in a beach front 'villa' and paid a premium per night which was for the view that we enjoyed from our patio not for the room itself. The kitchenette was very functional, we used it every day to make breakfast & lunch. The cleaning staff came each day & were very pleasant. We had plenty of hot water for showering unlike some of the other comments.
Overall I would recommend staying at ABV if you are interested in a peaceful location away from the hoards of annoying tourists down the beach and if you're an avid windsurfer.We can see ourselves going back next year since we had a great week of sun, food and wind.

We just returned from a 3+ week stay at Aruba Beach Villas, and the smiles will stay longer than the tan! This was not our first stay here, but with the perfect windsurfing right outside your door, the uncrowded beach and sport amenities, I cannot imagine finding a better place anywhere on the island. We will continue as return guests as it is starting to feel like home to us, Phil (owner) is a wonderful source of information from where to find the best bakery to windsurfing tips that will bring you home a better sailor than when you arrived there. His staff is top-notch, Marjan is Phil's support staff and has never been too busy to help out a guest..she also has that permanent "Aruba" smile for her Villa "family" members. If you are looking for gambling or night entertainment it is a short walk down and a quick taxi ride home. This is a place where you will truly come back "relaxed" from!

We enjoyed our stay at the Aruba Beach Villas in a non-ocean facing room. It was located in a quiet area away from the high rise area which suited us. The bus stop was located. directly out in front and made it easy to get around the island.
The maid service was excellent. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. However, the venetian blinds were dirty and they also let in a lot of light -they were in need of an update.
We enjoyed using the free snorkeling equipment as well.
The service was good but not as accomodating as we would have liked. The main office was only open from 9-5pm.
Overall, we would recommend this location if you want to be away from the high rise tourist areas.
