I have been to Club Arias and I loved it. We are returning again later this week for 5 days. What I love about it is that you get a beautiful room and pool area, free breakfast made to order, unlimited lemonade all day long, a snack in the afternoon and personalized service like I couldn't imagine. We were able to rent a car directly from the Club for a very reasonable rate (which you will need because it isn't in the beach area). They picked us up at the airport free of charge and check in took seconds. The other nifty thing was that I didn't have to pack a cooler because they let you borrow one for free. Its like having a mansion all to yourself because you rarely see anyone else. Its just lovely.

Another really fabulous feature is that they provide walkie talkies to each room for keeping in touch with each other. They also provide cell phones so that you can contact them if needed. They have a computer free for use and a US landline that you can call home without overseas charges if desired!

Though the place is out of the way of the normal resort areas I loved that about it. I felt like I actually got to experience the whole island...not just the tourist spots. There is an amazing feel to getting to drive yourself around to all the great spots. Don't let its location keep you from going there.

Hope that helps!

Any information on this location?
It's located on the 1 in savaneta on the left hand side as you travel to SN.
Looked interesting to Kat and I as a way to experience Aruba on a different, off the beaten path, experience. I wish I had stopped in and looked around.

If anyone has stayed there I would love some feed back.

Those were some wonderful threads Lisa and thanks for the PM to Kent Andrea.
What I would love to know more about are the accommodations as a family of five with three children 4,8 and 12 how would the 10 rooms available work out?
Would we need two or is this better suited for a husband/ wife get away for a long weekend or short week?

Trip advisor has only stellar reviews and my juices are flowing to try something new and intimate.

Ralph. This place is awsome and you are right about Kat. They love it here and have been back twice and they have 2 more trips planned. I am going back this summer for my 28th trip and I have been staying at Club Arias my last 7 times. I LOVE Aruba and keep staying longer each time. I am now spending 6 months there a year. Hopefully I will be there if you come.
Its not on the beach but its very nice a private and quiet. There are only 10 rooms so never any crowds. The best snorkel spot on the Island is only 4 minutes away and there is a small beach there to hang out. Baby Beach is also about 12 minutes away. You will need a car there because you need to get around.
As far as the rooms, they are really nice but they are all different. Some have 2 queen beds and some bunks with King and you will just have to get in contact with Arias to see whats availible.
Gabriel cooks free breakfast everyday so thats really nice. They have lemonade all day long and also they put some cake or cookies out at 4 every afternoon. They have pool, pingpong, and fuzzball to play. They have 2 pools and you never have to get up early to save a spot. You really get to know the people staying there because its so small. Its like family there. If you have any other questions, feel free to e-mail me direct because I don't get to these boards as often as I would like. kentgerber@adamswells.com

Kent
Thanks for the scoop.
My Kat is my wife Katherine. We both fell in love with Aruba 12 years ago and have been back every year since, sometimes 2x a year. But Aruba has changed so much and has been so Americanized with the collossal Marriott structure and the mall on palm beach. This past visit 3/30/12 thru 4/13/12 we really saw the island from a new perspective concentrating on the local restaurants and spending time in savanetta and just soaking in the local flare. When I saw aria I was really transfixed with the idea of trying a new location off the beaten path.

I will take you up on your offer to converse via email.
Danki
Ralph

My Wife and I needed 1 night after our timeshare reservation and stayed there. We had a wonderful time, the place is very nice.as Kent mentioned they have rooms that will accommodate families.

Arias also offers a Rhino tour that is awesome, you drive Rhino vehicles through the park making stops. We left at 6am watched the sunrise and then went to the natural pool. We had the natural pool to ourselves! When other's starting showing up we moved on with the rest of our tour.

i have been by that section of beach lisa and i think it is a stretch calling it beach.

one kind of has to make their way thru a tree area (mangroves?)

many folks have found that the parking there is an open invitation for car break ins.

the snorkeling might be fabulous when the currents are weak, but the beach and swimming area are really nothing to write home about.
