M husband and I have visited Aruba 9 times. Each time staying at a different location to enjoy all this beautiful island has to offer. Bananas apartments was the worse place we have ever stayed.

If you're looking for a reasonably priced, comfortable, close to some of Aruba's nicest beaches, apartment Bananas is your place. The owners are very welcoming and always available in case you would need them. The garden with it's pool and Jacuzzi is very nice with lots of shades and the beach is only 400 yards!

Banana's appartments' owners are very friendly. There is a pool and bubble bath/pool. The appartments are fine and not super expensive. It's located 5 minutes (walking) ftom the beach and about the same time driving to the Californian lighthouse. Also it's just after the big hotels, in a calm suburb, so you get the best local aruban and tourist feeling!

Bananas is apartments. Larger than the typical hotel room but with a kitchenette. Peter and his wife Tina are very nice. Peter shows you the room and pool as well as the roof top patio. Tina introduces you to the pets. I would stay here again. Bananas is off the beaten path so it is a quiet neighborhood. The pool...

We would definitely stay here again. The location is close to the best snorkeling on the island, although you do need a car to drive to beaches,restaurants and supermarkets. The place is immaculately clean. Maid service is provided every day except Sunday and Wednesday. The courtyard is a quiet oasis with a variety of palm and fruit trees beautifully lit...

Perfect location (away from the busy hotel area), nice apartments, wonderful garden and pool, lovely hosts. It felt like home away from home. Definitely will be back! (Note: you need to rent a car to go grocery shopping and get around!)

My wife and I stayed at Bananas in February 2012. Since then we have been fortunate enough to visit several other Caribbean islands. When it came time to plan our last trip together before we start our family, we both instantly agreed that we wanted to come back to Aruba and stay at Bananas. The value is unbeatable, and the...
