“Great stay”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

My wife and I made a one night stay, Jan 4th, at Wonders. It was a $28 cab ride from the airport. The hotel is clean and comfortable with a great little lobby, pool, and patio surrounded by lush gardens. We had one of the cheaper rooms, $151/night. It was very large and came with full bath, satellite TV, fridge, and coffee maker. Breakfast was $9-12 extra. Wonders has a great location, just a 10 minute walk to downtown and the cruise terminal.

Gaston was very helpful with local info and an excellent host.

We had been to Aruba before and love it each and very time. This time we wanted to stay somewhere off the beaten path. That's when we discovered Wonders. The moment we stepped foot onto the property we knew we had made the right decision. Absolutely everything was just perfect. It's truly like being inside of paradise. The landscape just makes you feel like you are truly in your own private resort. It is a 10 minute walk downtown and although the neighborhood looked a little sketchy we never felt threatened at any point and we even walked back after hours one night. The staff was exceptional and always willing to lend a helping hand or answer any questions that we had. The young lady that works there gave us a ride to the beach everyday and provided very useful tips. Public transportation is believe it or not very user friendly as the island is only so big and there are but so many places you can go. We will be staying there again and recommend Wonders to anyone who doesn't want to stay in the hustle and bustle of the beachfront properties or resort style places. Yes they are convenient but Wonders is truly just as it's name implies simply wonderful...

Room Tip: We stayed in room 8 it was a beautiful room and spacious. There is also a room on the 2nd floor with...

My husband and I spend our anniversary at Wonders of Aruba. It is a perfect hide away for couples and we really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are spacious and clean and there are only 8 rooms which makes your stay quit homely. The garden area has a pool and different spaces to relax on comfortable beds with sunshades where we spend our relaxing moments. Breakfast is absolute worth trying. We would definitely recommend staying at this 'home' away from home! Thank you, Marieke, Fred and Gaston for your hospitality and services.

Tropical setting embellished with an artistic flair. Gracious host speaks many languages. Private pool surrounded with restful cabanas and flowering plants. King beds were firm (no sleeping in a sagging old matress). Walk in Shower. Refrigerator. Clean. Walk to town. Secure property with private off-street parking. Breakfast is a nice add-on with fresh, healthy food. A great value. We booked last two rooms 4 month ahead.

Together with a friend we stayed a week in Wonders while being on a kite-surf trip. The wind conditions were not great during this time of the year but Wonders was a good pick. It's nicely decorated place with cosy rooms and a nice poolside and lounge area where you can chill out. Breakfast is worth it's money so make sure to try it, sitting by the pool. Staff and owner Gaston will greet you upon arrival and will be always there to help out and give advise for the island's attractions. Hotel does not allow families with children which sounds strange at first but allows for a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The location is a bit off the beaten track and although is not appealing it's a 10 minute safe walk from city centre and a 10 minute drive from major beach areas, though you will probably need a car. Overall a great choice and a good value for money especially if you want to avoid the pricier and more commercial high rise hotel area.

Room Tip: Room 5 has a balcony but you are not going to spend much time indoors anyway :-)

Me and my boyfriend stayed at Wonders Buotique hotel for 11 nights in October and enjoyed every minute of it. The hotel is absolutely stunning with it´s garden and comfy rooms. The atmosphere in the hotel is relaxed and it is easy to get your mind out of work and everyday routines. The hotel owner, Gaston, and his crew made everything for us to feel ourselves comfortable. We started our days with delicious breakfasts served at the garden (please try it, absolutely delicious and totally worth it). As we rented a car only for 1 day during the stay at Aruba, Gaston kindly picked us from the airport the day of arrival and offered a ride to the beach every morning after breakfast. This is the place to be when having a vacation in Aruba.
