My son and I spent a week at Karibu Aruba this past February and we’ll definitely be coming back. Andras and Beja are wonderfully friendly, and incredibly helpful in every way. Our unit was spotless, and was cleaned every day. There were plenty of towels for the beach and pool. The convenience of having our own kitchen, as well as the main kitchen, and the BBQ by the pool made our stay easy and relaxing. The location can’t be beat. The beach is a five minute walk and groceries are close by as well. If you’re looking for a relaxing stay, with friendly, helpful hosts, the convenience of a kitchen, and quick access to the beach and restaurants book your stay at Karibu, and say hi to Andras and Beja for us :)

Clean and the owners make your feel at home and go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. We were there only a short time but plan to go back to Aruba and stay with them again. Very easy access to beach and attractions.

We had the pleasure of staying at this lovely boutique hotel for Carnival weekend in Aruba. We expected a hotel room but our experience was more like a home away from home thanks to Andras & Beja, the owners of the Karibu. We loved that we had full use of the kitchen & lounge & outdoor pool facilities in addition to our private room with ensuite bathroom.

The Karibu is within easy walking distance of the large resorts (Marriott & Ritz Carlton) with the added benefit of intimacy & peacefulness in this gem of a property. We enjoyed our welcoming drink on arrival & appreciated getting to know the owners over the 3 days we had with them.

Easy to see why they enjoy a 5 star rating. We would give them 6 stars if we could.

Room Tip: We had the "twin room" on the 2nd floor. It was really 2 twin beds pushed together. The room is large & comfortable & immaculate.

Clean, peaceful and lovely owners. Just off the high rise beach, easy access to attractions and dining. Walkable to beachfront. Much more affordable than nearby resorts. Pool and common enclosed open air atrium.

For New Years we decided to enjoy the sun and sand of Aruba. Though the island had more than its fair share of tourists, we enjoyed the relaxing oasis of Karibu Aruba.The apartment was clean and spacious had an updated bathroom, and its own kitchen, In the common areas there was a fully equipped kitchen, a pool, hammocks, and a charming courtyard. We walked to the beach every day. Kudos to our gracious host, Beja was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. When our flight home was cancelled and others waited hours to find hotel rooms, we called Beja and she allowed us to return to our apartment and extend our stay for two more days! One of the best vacations we have had. ADDED BONUS: We made friends with not only Beja but a couple in another suite.
