I went on vacation to Aruba with 2 friends in late January and we had a wonderful stay at Modern Hotel Aruba. The hotel was quiet and peaceful and in a great location near the high rise hotels. We stayed in the 2-bedroom 2-bathroom poolside apartment. The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. We were very pleased with the kitchen in our room and also used the poolside grill during our weeklong stay. The pool was very nice and the pool area had several seating areas, some in the shade and others in the sun. There are a lot of nice touches including a lobby area with coffee and ice available. The hotel owner, Mike, was very responsive and answered my many questions before our arrival.

Though the hotel is walking distance to the beach, I would suggest renting a car so you can explore the island. We especially like the Boca Catalina beach that was about a 5-minute drive from the hotel. This beach was much less crowded than the beach at the high-rise hotels and we enjoyed snorkeling there. We enjoyed our stay at Modern Hotel Aruba very much and would definitely recommend staying there.

Our host, Michael was a gem and so was the resort. Michael let us use his truck for groceries and gave us great advice on restaurants and tours around the island. The resort was close enough to everything but also far enough away for peace and quiet. This will be our only place to stay in Aruba. Also very reasonably priced.

We just returned from Aruba staying in the all white unit with a kitchen. This place is amazing! Not only is it spacious including a Living Room, Dining Room and large very modern and fully appointed kitchen, it's private with direct access to the pool/lounge area. The unit couldn't have been more clean!! Blanca the housekeeper was so very accommodating. She cleaned our place as needed and made sure we had plenty of bathroom and beach towels. The beach chairs were provided were great so we wanted for nothing when we visited the beaches. The reception area was always stocked with delicious teas,coffees, and candy as well as an ice maker and coffee maker. Mike and Amanda were kind enough to rent us a car and make awesome restaurant accommodations. We absolutely loved our accommodations! Mike and Amanda set the bar when it comes to hosting guests and making sure every little detail has been well thought out.

I stayed at the Modern Hotel Aruba in December with a group of 4 adults. The pictures do not do this place any justice - great views of the high rise hotels and spotless accommodations. The atmosphere was very relaxing which is refreshing after previously staying at the high rise hotels for many years. Mike was a fantastic host who was always available at any time and very attentive. He provided us with lovely beach chairs which were perfect for our day trips to Arashi and Eagle Beaches. The housekeeper Blanca was also great and very helpful with any needs such as fresh towels and linens. I can’t thank Mike enough for an amazing week in Aruba. I would highly recommend this place over any of the high rise resorts having now frequented both. Me and my fellow travelers have already discussed coming back to stay at Mike’s place next year!!!

There are many hotels and resorts in Aruba, but there is only one place that beats the comfort, privacy, location and the price to the punch! Modern Hotel Aruba is a must for you to consider. I have been to Aruba several times. Staying at 5 Star resorts every time. Never again will I stay in the resorts. My expectations of Modern Hotel Aruba were exceeded by ten folds. This private piece of paradise is two minute walk from the the palm beach and all the conveniences of 5 star resorts. Yet, if you decide to indulge to stay in the beautiful pool area of Modern Hotel Aruba, have breakfast or grill some dinner on your own, it will elevate your experience beyond what most of us would expect. The feeling of owning your own villa in the paradise, is what it's like.
Beautifully appointed rooms with kitchenettes, bathrooms and air conditioning compliment the courtyard with pool and outdoor lounging areas. Cleanliness and comfort for all guests are the top priority. The owners are accommodating with anything that you can imagine. Take advantage of renting one of their 4x4 off road vehicles, and explore the island. You will not be disappointed. This place is a gem!!!
