Paradera Park Aruba3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We have just returned from our third stay at Paradera Park. Every aspect of this establishment is designed to anticipate a traveler's needs. The apartments are beautifully outfitted, the grounds are lush and lovely, the hosts are delightful. We like to rent a car and try a different beach each day.... Sometimes the pool was so darn inviting the beach had to wait! We cannot wait to return to what feels like a home away from home. 🌴🌴🌴
We went to Aruba for a week. Prior to arriving, Debby had made reservations for us with a Car Rental so we didn't have to search all over for availability. Once we arrived, checkin was a breeze. We were in and out of the office and at the pool in no time. Paradera Park is a place to relax. Read a book, take a nap in the hammock or lounge by the pool. The kitchenette is equipped with all the utensils, pots and pans needed to cook right at home. If you're up for a BBQ, or you want to cook the fish you caught on your fishing trip that day, there is a grill available to use right at the pool area. In the evening, the ambiance of green and blue accent lights in the garden/pool area is beautiful as we sat and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the evening. If there is something you don't have, ask Debby & Henk and they will be there to help you. Can't wait to go back next year.
We went for two weeks to Aruba. The Park was quiet and give us the rest we needed. Paradera Park is focussed on rest and personal assistents. The place of the park is great because you can drive easy by car to the busy places and when you want rest you stay at your appartment. The owners are very helpfull and give you the extra's you need to feel like home. I recomend this place to everyone who likes the possibility to stay at a quiet place but easy to travel to the touristic places.
Going to Aruba for the first time, we looked for a place that we could spend our vacations near the main attractions, and at the same time being lazy and comfortable in the hotel. Paradera Park was the perfect choice. It is necessary to rent a car, something very convenient in Aruba, because the hotel is in an inner and quiet quartier of the island, called Paradera. The owner is very kind and helped a lot in our check-in and check-out phases. She put available for all the guests a set of beach chairs and a cooler for all the time. Our room (I don’t know if all rooms have it) came with a nice kitchen, that was very useful for make our own breakfast and cook our dinner. There are a lot of Chinese supermarkets in a handy distance, and a huge and fantastic Dutch hypermarket some miles away. The landscape of the hotel is something. A very well treated garden and an attractive swimming pool that we used all the afternoons for relaxing. After the sunset, there is a special view: a set of blue and green lamps are lit, respectively for the pool and for the trees in the garden. A last detail: there is a gas griller and some tables around the swimming pool, useful for preparing fast barbecues.
My partner my dog and I were all evacuated from Sint Maarten due to hurricane Irma. By some grand luck we were hosted by Debbie and Hank the owners and operators of Paradera Park. I have never felt more welcomed and cannot express my gratitude enough for their help during a very difficult time. Both Debbie and Hank went above and beyond to aid us in all we needed. On top of it all Pardera park itself is a gorgeous apartment building very well maintained and a garden/pool area to relax in for a life time. THANK YOU DEBBIE AND HANK! We will be forever in your debt.
The wife and I were looking for a nice, chill place to relax away from all the hustle and bustle of the major resorts. Paradera Park was the perfect fit. Debbie and Henk were such wonderful hosts. Debbie took a lot of time and helped us find and book some excursions. She and Henk were both so accommodating. The pool area is absolutely stunning, both during the day and at night. We spent almost every evening relaxing in the pool looking up at the stars. Debbie helped us book a snorkeling excursion on the Arusun (which was totally amazing, you should do this). She also gave us lots of great dining tips, which led to some of the best BBQ we've ever had. She is very knowledgeable about the island. If we ever return to Aruba, there is no doubt we will be back!
It was our 1st time to Aruba. Had a wonderful experience. Very relaxing ambiance and beautifully covered with nature. Debbie & Henk are the best treat you like a family...I know I have a home in Aruba...:)
Our family of 4 wanted to relax, enjoy the beaches of Aruba, and maybe learn a thing or two about a different country. We certainly achieved that by staying away from the high rise hotel area full of Americans and franchises one would find back home. Paradera Park was the perfect springboard to exploring the island. It has lovely, clean, quiet, well-maintained accommodations, especially for a family. We were able to go to the new organic, Fresh market nearby and purchase groceries, prepare some meals in house, grill by the pool and eat out when we wanted to. By being in town, one got a better sense of how real Arubans live. The owners were very helpful in giving us ideas and suggestions based on our interests. We took a horse trail ride along the beach, a walking tour of the capital, explored the national park, visited bat caves (really) and many small quiet beaches tucked away....then we came home to our very pleasant retreat at Paradera park and laid in hammocks drinking beer while our girls played in the pool. The courtyard is simply amazing and I wish we could replicate it at our house. It really is THE place to stay in Aruba if you are looking for a respite and don't want to be surrounded by vast amounts of loud, boozey tourists.
I had a wonderful time there. Very peaceful, quiet and relaxing. Debbie and Henk were so sweet and very helpful. Debbie was very helpful and knowledge about the island and helped us book an snorkeling adventure that was wonderful. Henk supplied us with beach chairs and a cooler. I wish my visit was longer, I really enjoyed the pool.
We stayed here in March 2017. From the moment we booked, the communication was amazing. Debby and Henk are a wealth of information and go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect. The location was exactly what we were looking for, quiet and central as we wanted to explore the island. Even better, it is immaculate. The rooms are well appointed and the kitchen has anything you could possible need. Once you open your sliding glass doors, there is the most beautiful pool area surrounded by lovely flowers and trees. We cannot wait to return here. Thanks Debby and Henk for a trip we wont forget.
