Bananas Apartments
Reviewed 30 March 2013

Very happy that we stayed here, very nice apartment, beautiful pool and relaxation areas, you will not be disappointed with a vacation stay here. I have been home about a month and already thinking about rebooking for next year, and this will be my choice for my sixth Aruba vacation. Have traveled most of the Caribbean and Aruba is the best. Great weather, friendly people, and safe environment. Very happy with the accommodations, location, and a fair price.

Room Tip: Pool side apartment was great. Had outdoor table, chairs, and two loungers.

We have stayed at Bananas all our visits to Aruba. Nearly 10 years later, we will return again next month. The family that owns and maintains this property have always been helpful, and welcoming. Apartments are clean and offer all that is needed for a great stay. The property offers 2 pools, much appreciated quiet from the noise of hotels, and time shares, and a beautiful setting. The location is near beautiful beaches, and a short distance from restaurants, casinos, and shopping. What more can you ask for? It is paradise....

Just came back from perfect vacation in Aruba at Bananas apartments - relaxed, quiet and close to perfect snorkeling beaches - far enough away from high rise busy hotel areas for those of us who prefer quieter beaches and evenings. Reasonably priced for Aruba -very clean rooms, simple furnishings and lovely gardens with two pools.
Great snorkeling at Boca Catalina a few blocks away.

Four of us stayed for 10 days in 2 apartments at Bananas at the end of February. These apartments are clean, well maintained and fully functional. They are located 5 minutes drive away from the busy tourist beach areas, close enough to easily get to but far enough away for peace and quiet. You can easily walk to a couple of nice beaches for sunbathing, swimming or snorkeling. Bananas is in a quiet neighborhood in Malmok where you can go for a morning walk or jog. They have a pool that is always clean and refreshing, lots of lounge chairs and a few big palapas to sit under. The owners were always accessible and very friendly, they let us use their phone to call cabs, order food and were very helpful with island information.
We would recommend Bananas to anyone for your next vacation on Aruba.

I've been going to Aruba for 22 years, staying at many hotels and about 15 apartments. After I found Bananas about 7years ago, I will not stay anywhere else. I can't say enough good things about Bananas, from the beautiful gardens, the nice, very clean rooms/suites, 2 wonderful pools only a few steps from your door, to the very accomodating proprietors whom I consider my friends. Aruba is the safest island in Caribbean, Bananas is the nicest apartments in Aruba. I now go twice a year. When I stay there, I feel like I live on the island. I do consider it 'My Second Home'.

We just spend 2 perfect weeks at the Bananas Apartments and you could not find a better place to stay. We have spend the last 9 years at these apartments. The place is beautiful and the owners are the best people in the world. Close to the beach. Beautiful grounds. Beautiful pool and garden areas. Very clean and great cleaning service. We will be back again next year. Perfection!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are great!

My family and I loved our stay at Bananas Apartments - you felt like you lived on the island - it was awesome! We had 2 apartments - clean, functional - simply beautiful grounds and pool. Very family-like atmosphere. Super close to beaches. We plan to come back this year and wouldn't stay anywhere else!! LOVED IT!
