Sandra the owner was so welcoming and kind from the very moment I booked. This hotel is only a 12 minute walk from Palm Beach and the strip- super easy. The room was beautiful , white linens, big window which you can open, a TV and a very well lit bathroom with a shower that has a good water pressure. Our room was cleaned and serviced (bed made) everyday by the staff. The hotel is like a bed and breakfast with an intimate feel to it. You wake up in the morning go to the pool/patio and have breakfast freshly cooked to order, which was usually over medium eggs,a meat and a grit cake/toast. There is also a pool table the guest can use free of charge. Everything went so smoothly and it was a very tranquil experience. I would most definitely stay here again.
Stayed here for a couple nights over the new years holiday. In general there wasn't anything great or horribly bad about the accommodations. Other guests decided it was ok to play loud music in the common area pretty late into the evenings (not the holiday). Disrespectful to those whose rooms open to the common area/pool area. Mornings weren't an issue with breakfast noise. So, I wouldn't say this is an overly quiet place to stay. Would recommend keeping music levels down after nine or ten at night for all quests when in the common areas. Just be respectful. Last note, our pillows were paper thin flat. Would recommend something with some cushioning.
I was attracted to this property because of the location and price. Without GPS, it would be difficult to find Posada Sandra Tours. Upon arrival I was greeted by the hosts. Very friendly and willing to help in any way they could. Breakfast is included. And I found it to be very fresh and cooked to my liking. I liked that the room came equipped with a mini fridge and good wifi. The room was comfortable....during the day. In the evening, there is a good lamp by the bed which had 'normal' light. But the ceiling and bathroom lights were blue (!). It was impossible to shave in the bathroom in the evening. My other issue was the lack of lounge chairs by the pool. Only upright wood chairs. While I had booked 4 nights, the last 2 nights I chose to stay elsewhere. If poor room lighting (see photo) and no lounge chairs are not an issue, I would highly recommend this property.
Liked · Bed was very comfortable, very good AC, very friendly staff, quiet area and property, WiFi relatively ok Disliked · The bathroom was terrible. The shower had almost all of the time very poor water pressure, there was mold spots on the cieling and I found two times, late at night cockroaches. Also our room didn't had a good isolation of the windows because in every single day at least 2 or 3 bees were flying inside although we never let any windows/door open. It is unacceptable to book a 3*** property and to "hunt" 20-25 bees during your staying especially when one of us is allergic. We discussed the issue but besides insect repellant spray there was nothing more to do, the room obviously needs some improvments.
The owners (very nice) drove out to meet us because we couldn't locate the address. We didn't get the room we reserved. We were told the "suite" was too big for 2 people that it was for families of 3 or more and had 2 beds not 1. (Turned out not true, photos on line show suite w 1 bed and kitchen and room across hall from us was a couple with a 1 bedroom Suite). Breakfast was a fried egg with processed slice of cheese and 2 frozen sausage links. Very NOISY! You can hear everything going on in the "lobby", other rooms, foot steps up and down the stairs as if you were standing there talking to them yourselves. There is a dog on the property upstairs that is out on the balcony that barks at everything. Property manager (which we didn't know existed until we needed to check out earlier than planned) does not understand English, hard to communicate with. The pool did not look as clean as the picture. We had the "pond" view. In front of it was a dirt lot with a lot of wooden pallets piled up and old broken furniture. Would not stay here again.
The beach and water were beautiful and we enjoyed it, at first. Then the Carnival cruise ship passengers arrived. We were appalled at their behavior. They actually got under the umbrella with us to get in the shade. If you visit here, go when the cruise ships are not there.
This is a very nice, clean resort. The staff is very attentive at all your needs. The rooms are big. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with plenty of room. Up to 8 people can stay in this unit comfortably. The unit is very clean and there is daily room service. The icemaker did not work, but we called and we had ice delivered to our room within 5 minutes. The staff called half way through the week to check and see that we were ok. The grounds were always well maintained. I noticed that the pools were always well maintained. They have themes every night, can't tell you much as we usually went out at night. There is security at night and I felt totally safe. You can walk to small kiosks where they sell breakfast pasteches (spelling?)of all kinds. Delicious. There are also kiosks at night all around that sell all types of good food. Try one! WiFi- sketchy. We were in a room close to the pool. We had WiFi for the most part; but there were times that it did not work so great. You have to constantly log in. This is not a place for you if you want to be able to walk to the beach. Although the beach is not far at all. There are so many beaches with amenities. My favorite was eagle beach. We found a bar that rents lounge chairs with a palaya included and there is free wifi. What more can you ask for.
Had a fantastic time in Aruba! Excellent service from the staff! The breakfast was very delicious(tried an "Arepa" for the first time). We did a jeep tour with Marvin to the natural pool and all of the island attractions. It was one of the best tours I've ever been on. We are thinking of going back to Aruba with more friends and definitely we will be staying at the Palm Beach Retreat.
El precio es muuuuyyy alto para la categoría de la posada. Es un sitio modesto con muy buena atención de parte de su dueña principalmente. Tiene una buena ubicación sin embargo si no alquilas vehículo tienes que caminar bastante y por lugares sin iluminación. La habitación que alquilamos decía “suite” pero era una cama matrimonial ( revisar la base porque está rota ) pensamos que era más grande. Solo 2 almohadas. Una cobijita que no arropa. Baño limpio Buen aire acondicionado Realmente está bien si no quieres pagar mucho por un gran hotel, pero de verdad es demasiado para las tarifas Las áreas comunes se ven un poco antiguas y desordenadas.
Vamos começar com o lado positivo! Que foram as instalações!, ficamos no AP 12, ar condicionado, frigobar, tv e chuveiros funcionando impecavelmente (parece tudo ser novo) e boa limpeza que era feita todo dia, O negativo: localização, como eu já tinha visto a localização no Google e feito uma boa pesquisa, e já ia alugar um carro durante toda a estadia pra curtir a ilha, nem liguei pra a localização, mas realmente é muito afastado e a noite não tem iluminação nas adjacências, (apenas 1 de frente para a pousada), acessibilidade não tem, vc tem que subir vários lances de escadas com as malas, no café da manhã quase não tem opção, mas a moça muito atenciosa que atende e prepara com boa vontade faz valer o tempinho que vc tem que esperar ser preparado. Também não existe uma recepção, e nada pra chamar alguém, nós fomos embora no domingo por volta das 07:30 AM, e tivemos que largar a chave lá, mas eu e minha namorada tivemos 1 semana tão mágica em Aruba que até essa pousadinha já nós da 1 saudade nostálgica, reforçando que estávamos de carro.
