We went to Aruba and did not want to stay in one of those big resorts, so we came up with Aruba Surfside Marina. This was an excellent choice. Simon and Yanthi and the other staff are friendly, helpfull and making sure everything is fine. Every morning the breakfast is brought to enjoy it in front of your room in...

Great location! Minutes from the airport. The views were beautiful from the room and walking distance from downtown. Loved the fact that the beaches were a couple of steps from the hotel and were not over populated. It was like we had them to ourselves. Two resturants that were top notch 1. Barefoot Resurant, 2.Pincho's Bar and Grille. Both resturants...

We had our wedding at the Aruba Surfside Marina on March 8, 2013. To say that Simon and his crew did an excellent job is an understatement. They were ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. We had 70 guests that came from the Philadelphia area alone and each and everyone of them said it was the best wedding they ever attended. The food was...

My wife, daughter and i stayed here over new year's. this place is near the airport, right next to the ocean, with great views from the room. The beach in front of the hotel is not as good as the ones you can drive to. But, if you consider this your base of operations, as a place to stay as...

We can not say enough about Simon and the staff at the Aruba Surfside Marina. We had our wedding at the Surfside Marina two weeks ago with 70 guests - it was a PERFECT, memorable evening. The rooms are clean and cozy and the views are breath taking. The food was delicious, the décor and service was impeccable. Every detail...

I really think about "our" room at Aruba Surfside Marina as our home by the sea. It's a great room, big enough with everything I need, breakfast delivered by Marta every morning on the balcony overlooking the turquoise sea (I can never get enough of that view), the location off the beaten path, the possibility of staying on a beach...

My husband and I stayed here for a week. It is a great place and the staff were very very friendly.Rooms are spotlessly clean and big. The bed was very large and so comfortable. Breakfast on the balcony, served by Martha, was great every morning. Love the fresh fruit platter. Having a tiny kitchen was also great for cold drinks...

We spent 7 days here for our honeymoon. The staff is great and very personable. The location was perfect for us. We were able to walk to downtown Oranjestad either on the sidewalk or along the waterfront. We were able to go to dinner and drink without having to worry about driving home. I do suggest that you rent a...

nice and clean, great breakfast included. not anywhere near all the high rises and the crowds of tourists which I liked. you should rent a car if you stay here to get to the nicer beaches though. no pool if that matters but this place is the beast deal on the island. we will definitely go back.

I really enjoyed staying at this tiny hotel but there are some trade-offs. I guess it depends on your priorities. As others have mentioned, it is close to the airport. That's good because you can get to it pretty quickly upon arrival. For some, it’s bad because of the (surprisingly only occasional) jet landing/take off noise. The noise was not...
