“A great place for a great vacation!”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had 8 people in our group and the villa was more than big enough for all of us. The kids enjoyed the large pool and open areas for them to play. My husband and I enjoyed the patio area at night feeling the breeze and listening to all of the island sounds! Great place to stay!

“Excelent!!!”
Reviewed 8 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The house was exactly the owner said. We rent two houses and there were no troubles.
The boys (Frank, Ivan and Brown) were so helpful, like all Aruba's people.
Like they recommend, you need rent a car to go everywhere from the house and around Aruba.
We loved this place.

“Perfect accomodations”

Merlot Villas were the perfect accomodations for our family in Aruba. The pictures doe not do the amount of space justice! We used the private pool daily, and really enjoyed having multiple large areas to all sit together before the day began and at day's end. The gated community and the alarm system added a nice element of security. Would definitely stay here again the next time we come to Aruba!

We had a great stay at Merlot Villas and will be returning next year! The house was very clean. It was a very safe neighborhood and it was great to have a beautiful patio with pool!

“Good Stay”

Merlot Villas are as pictured and advertised. That being said my review is written within the context of comparing this villa with other villas that we have rented in St. John, Costa Rica and Virgin Gorda.

The villa offered great value when traveling with a large group, we had 8 adults and 1 teenager. The pool area and outdoor space was very nice and you had sun exposure all day, the pool furniture could use some upgrading. There were only to 2 chaise lounge chairs and we could have used more for the size of our group.

The bedrooms were all air conditioned and the beds were quite soft but nobody complained about not sleeping well.

Little things that could be improved upon:
1) Provide a bar of soap in each bathroom.
2) A small box of laundry soap could have been provided.

Customer service was very good, we were greeted at the villa by Bram who showed us around the villa. The toaster did not work and I informed Bram and it was replaced that day.

This villa is located in a neighborhood and not on the beach, bear that in mind when leasing this villa. Also, bear in mind that it is much less expensive than staying at the hotels on Palm Beach. You will definitely need to rent a car to get around, however it is not that expensive when using the rental car company that Merlot Villas recommends.

Overall the villa is a great value for the money.

“Great place and great owners”
Reviewed 4 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We decided to stay somewhere that my adult children could each have their own space when our family visited Aruba for the first time. I investigated many places and decided that this place was perfect for our family and it was! The home was clean, well maintained and spacious. Marble and tile throughout the house, 4 nice size bedrooms each with their own bathroom and sufficient common areas. Our favorite time of day was in the afternoon we would return to the house and enjoy happy hour by the pool (which is cleaned and maintained twice weekly). We thought that was the best way to deal with the afternoon heat and recharge before our evening plans. One hesitation we had was dealing directly with an owner and paying cash for the balance and security deposit (or a bank transfer). Our fears were unfounded. Everything went fine. Ivan, Frank and Kim were all most gracious and helpful. They answered all our questions, met us at the villa on arrival and showed up promptly at check out with our security depost in hand. They were warm and friendly and did anything they could to make our stay perfect. If we had any comment we thought the linens and towels could use some upgrading and the security gate to the community was not working while we were there but they did have a guard at the gate during the night. We did not have any security issues at all. My daughter even went for her daily morning run thru the neighborhood and her only attention was from the locals' chickens and dogs. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would recommend Merlot Villas and their wonderful owners. Enjoy the Happy Island!

Just got back from a four night stay in Aruba (wish I can go back). Me and five friends stayed at the Merlot Villas and couldn't have been happier. For starters, the location is great. It is about a four-five block walk to the popular and busy Palm Beach. And, is a short car ride to about 8 other beaches. It is also convenient to a big grocery store, a few casinos and many restaurants (all a quick car ride away). The villa itself is very nice and spacious. The six of us never felt cramped. It was nice to stay in a villa with so many people.....versus three rooms at a hotel. The dining room table was used for many hours of cards. Last but not least, both Kim and Frank were great to work with. I got a phone call within a day of my first e-mail looking into the property and the customer service only got better. They answered all of my questions, answered any concerns and were just really friendly and quick the whole time. If...no, when.....I head back to Aruba, I will definitely look into renting one of the Merlot Villas again. Thanks Kim and Frank!
