Anyone ever stay here?? Thinking about it for 2 nights in November. They are both in Noord and have great price and ratings. I trust your opinions better though and thought I would ask. Wanted to try Bananas since Andrea's great review but they do not have a room for 5 people.
The Aruba Cunucu Residences is a great place. They are located in a great neighborhood and have a nice pool and roof top deck and it is a small inn so very private. I recall the only draw back was that they may not have heated hot water in their showers (I'm not positive so you'd need to ask them). Another place I would suggest that you look at is Swiss Paradise Aruba. This is a new inn over near the Tierra del sol golf course in the Safir neighborhood. It is a very nice property, new construction, and they have 2 and 3 bedroom villas in addition to their 1 bedroom suites so this might be a good fit for the size of your group. Their website is http://www.swissparadisearuba.com/ and the owner's name is Tina.
