First time staying here, loved everything about it!! We travel to Aruba every year, we have a timeshare for a week and like to extend our trip for another 3-5 days. We choose to stay at a smaller place to get some much needed quit after a week at a busy resort. We will definitely be back next year!! Thank you so much for an amazing ending to our holiday!

I am indecisive. I look for hours and hours in regards to travel itineraries. I try to create perfect travel plans. Sometimes I fail. Sometimes I don’t. I am so happy I went with this choice. The reviews were all accurate, and I had an amazing time. It was private, yet fun. I still felt like I was on vacation versus a secluded villa. However, I was able to avoid the crowds of hotels and resorts. I walked over to the high rise hotels for food, cocktails, and beach fun. (The walk is 5 minutes if you take the shortcut and 10 minutes if you don’t) Then, I was able to escape back to my quiet retreat. The pool and jacuzzi were open 24 hours. The neighborhood was safe. I really loved the dogs that lived in the Neighboring homes. The air conditioning worked super fast and super strong. The water got extremely hot, which I love! The penthouse offers all of the swankiness of a boutique hotel and the conveniences of a home. The other guests were so friendly though I rarely saw them. I will definitely return to this location. Just try it out. I promise you won’t regret it. I stayed two days at a resort prior to this hotel, and I loved that resort too, but it was very outdoorsy. I was ready for AC and poolside fun. The location is about 20 minutes from the airport. Taxi service is $30 to the hotel.

Spent a day in the hotel, great service, great food, very clean facilities, ask for UTA recommended. walking distance to the beach and super safe al around. me and my family had a blast, no complaints at all.

Just got back from spending at week at Modern Hotel. We stayed in the White Apartment, The apartment had everything that we needed and more. So many great things about staying here: NO KIDS!- so peaceful-coffee-location-value for $-pool is fantastic-Blanca-great owners. Sad to leave this piece of paradise-but glad to know that we found a great place. Walkable to Marriott and Palm Beach area but with car/taxi many options. Thank you for a restful week.

This was the BEST Airbnb my family has ever stayed in. It looks just like the pictures on their website, but even more beautiful in person. Everything inside and out is decorated so nicely! It was very peaceful as well when we spent time on the back pool deck. Very considerate owners, and they respond quickly if you have any questions about anything. The room and bathroom were kept very clean, and their housekeeper is so helpful and sweet. Palm Beach was a short walk and they provide beach chairs and towels to borrow. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to go back. Will highly recommend to other family members and friends!

I stayed at the Penthouse Suite, which was very comfortable and well equipped. It has a very enjoyable deck with a nice view of the pool and the high rise hotels. It´s only a few minute´s walk to the beach. The hotel is very nice, and the owner goes out of his way to make your stay a very pleasant one.

We had the best time at Modern Hotel Aruba! The staff there were so friendly and responsive and gave us the best recommendations for local places to eat and drink. Everything was exactly as pictured if not better. We rented mikes UTV for the day to explore the island and had so much fun. Highly recommended!!

WOW was my impression when first entering this property. My family and I were blown away with how beautiful this property was. The two bedroom two bathroom place was everything I expected and some. The place was immaculate with a very homey feel to it. Ana was "johnny on the spot" with any and every concern that we may have had. The property staff were very responsive, accommodating, and friendly. I will surely miss waking up and walking right out to the pool and Jacuzzi area, while glancing over at the high rise hotels thinking what a great decision I made to stay here rather than the high rise hotels. The location was also very appealing as if need be one could simply walk across the pathway to the beach to soak up the sun also indulge in other fun activities the beach has to offer. If I had to say a couple things that were disappointing was the fact that the Jacuzzi was not heated; but at least the jets worked. Also our inability to effectively communicate with Blanca and Jose (the property staff) due to the language barrier. Overall I was very sad to leave this place and it will forever be in my memory as one of the best vacations I've had so far. Keep up the good work!

The location of this property is convenient. It is minutes away from the beach and a local affordable shops where you can stock up on groceries for your stay. In the event you do not want to eat out every night there is a gas grill by the pool where your can also grill. The decorations are super cute and modern. Rooms are tidied daily and clean towel are provided upon request . There is staff on the property 24/7 . The owners Mike and his wife are ALWAYS available if you have any concerns , need any suggestions , or help . I literally called him one night around 12am and he was there to help . I would recommend this place to anyone traveling to ARUBA and does not want to do a resort .

We stayed at the Modern Hotel Aruba for eight days in May. We were very happy with this hotel. I stayed in the pool suite and my parents stayed in the penthouse. The pool suite had a pretty good size refrigerator with a gas stove, microwave and toaster. It also had a little seating area at the bar to eat. The penthouse had a smaller refrigerator and stove top. It had a HUGE walk in closet and HUGE bathroom with a tub, shower and a bidet. The only negative about this room was the stairs to get up to the room was very steep. The area outside the pool suite was very nice. It had a couch in addition to a table and chairs. The pool was very nice. They have a big table to sit at and a grill. The common area inside had a coffee machine, ice maker, tea bags and water. The place was very clean as well. 10/10 would stay again!
