“This was our first trip to Aruba, however, we have stayed in various AirBnB’s in the US, Mexico and Europe. Our stay at Elements of Aruba was wonderful, and our hosts were the most sweetest and gracious hosts we have ever encountered, very personable without being intrusive. Communication was quick and they were available whenever needed.
The place was meticulously clean. There was an air conditioner in each bedroom, and a fan if needed. The shower also had a boiler which was nice in order to have a warmer shower, I typically like a hot shower and this worked just fine for me.
We rented a jeep, having Google maps to navigate is a must and was easy to use. We found the rental to be centrally located and everything was just a quick drive away.
On our arrival date we went to Super Food Plaza (great selection of food, FYI, need to bring a bag which we bought a couple cute bags there to take back, but there were some at the rental) and picked up some items for our stay.
It was nice having the jeep, however, next time we’ll probably rent a car, and rent an UTV for the day for the Nationaal park Arikok.
Our hosts also had available a cooler, chairs and snorkel gear for us. As our hosts recommended, pick up a bag of frozen peas when you go snorkeling, it’s like fish food crack! Go early in the morning and you’ll have the place to yourselves.
Favorite places for breakfast was Nourish Café, Eduardo’s Beach Shack and One Happy Bowl. Didn’t like Linda’s dutch pancakes, they were burnt and from previous reviews there were similar complaints, the Dutch Pancake house in Aruba was much better, however, I heard Frank can make a pretty mean dutch pancake, hint hint.
For dinner we liked Yemanja, Elements and Madame Janette. Next time I would just get cocktails at Elements and sit out on their beach for the sunset.
Our last two evenings we stayed at the Renaissance hotel and went to Flamingo beach and loved it (didn’t want to get up early to wait in line for non guest tickets and not end up getting any due to them offering a limited amount to non guests).
We did the Aruba Aloe Museum & Factory, did the tour and loved it. Do this early in your stay and buy your aloe items to use. However, don’t worry if you need a little aloe therapy, Ineke knows just what to do. Our son forgot to put sunscreen on the top of his feet and burned them, Ineke prepped the aloe leaf and applied it to his feet, sweetest gesture of kindness ever!
You won’t go wrong staying here. Thank you Frank and Ineke for having us!! Love and blessings to you!!”
