A great place to get away from the high-rise, low-rise tourist congestion further down the island in Savaneta for an awesome "living it" island experience. Driftwood Gardens is an extension of units for the economically minded. Beautifully done efficiency units perfect for a couple or singles and complete access to the grounds and benefits of Club Arias.The units are complete with a full bath, a kitchenette, a nice little bedroom with a comfy bed and sheets, and a long bar top perfect for eating and planning out your day. The adjoining grounds of Club Arias are beautiful and immaculate, but really makes this place special is how attentive Arias, Alfonso, Gabriel and Gloria are to doing their jobs of making you feel like you're always welcome in Aruba and part of an island family. I found this place by very happy accident 5 years ago and have stayed there in both the Club Arias suites and the Driftwood units every year since, and wouldn't think of being anywhere else. This place is special, unique and what I consider my second home in Aruba.

This is a storage unit converted into a room. It has a Bedroom, a full bath, and a kitchen with a microwave, fridge, toaster oven and coffee maker. A cooler and chairs are provided for the beach. Savaneta Beach is in walking distance and Mangel Halto is a very short drive. It is a laid back quiet gem in Aruba. Average priced Restaurant on site. All the amenities that come with Club Arias are available, including a pool, an outdoor shower with hot water, a pool table, and a ping pong table. Service is very friendly, a little slow but hey, it is Aruba. Will be back. It is not fancy but it is really cool and unique. Aruba Bob's snorkeling is in your front yard. Perfect place for me. Good idea to rent a car.

We stayed for one night at the Driftwood gardens room to explore the southern side of the island. The manager went out of her way to accommodate our needs - we could check in early and we were offered the room at Driftwood Gardens instead of Club Arias to enjoy the lower price. It's useful to have a car - the lovely Baby Beach is just 15 mins drive!

This was our 9th visit to Club Arias. We have always gone in the fall. This time we were in the middle of high season and all of the rooms at Club Arias were booked. Flory offered us a room in their new option called Driftwood Gardens. These rooms were not available in past visits. Our room had everything we needed. A bed, bathroom with shower, fridge, microwave, kitchen sink and incredible A/C. We love the outdoor shower and pools that are available. The best part was the price! Arias, Flory and all of the staff are so wonderfully kind and helpful. Aruba Bob has expanded his activities too. Everyone goes out of their way to make sure your trip is perfect. This efficiency unit is a great value with access to all the amenities of the B&B. We highly recommend it!!

The Driftwood rooms at Club Arias are a work in progress but what a great concept! An efficiency that shares all the amenities of the B&B! You can save your money to do all the great things Aruba has to offer. Plus you get very personalized service, top notch recommendations for activities, food and necessities (grocery, pharmacy) Arias and Flory will make you feel like family in no time plus Gabriel,Nevin, Gloria and all the other staff will do whatever it takes to make you feel like a true part of their community. Ya it is a little rustic but you are in the Caribbean after all!

I have stayed at Driftwood several times and will continue to. The units are brand new and large with top quality beds, sheets and towels Mini fridge, micro wave kitchen. It is quiet and safe with a convenient location It is bed and breakfast included It is adjacent to Club Arias hotel so you get the amenities of the hotel The people are friendly and courteous it is super clean. In my opinion it is the best value in Aruba
